"My two cents worth, with all the brouhaha and the questions as to the precise interpretation of the Article 153, I want to ask this question - Why thus this article specifically states the SPECIAL POSITION of THE MALAYS (and natives of Sabah and Sarawak) only? Please read MALAYS only.
"153. (1) It shall be the responsibility of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong
to safeguard the special position of the Malays and natives of any
of the States of Sabah and Sarawak and the legitimate interests of
other communities in accordance with the provisions of this Article"
Not Indian, Chinese, Siamese, Ceylonese, Portuguese, Dutch, British, Indonesian, Burmese etc etc"
was to accentuate that our founding fathers must have had deliberated and with foresight, included this proviso, to affirm that the Malays (and natives of Sabah and Sarawak) are to be prioritized in the socio-economic, political and legal context.
Seeing the present the "racial" and political imbroglio the country finds itself in, the wisdom of that Article becomes apparent.
Those who need to question, argue or debate the intent of the Article can do so for all they want; but what they cannot do, is this - they cannot challenge its existence.
