"Ketuanan Melayu" is not Malay Supremacy

“The Chinese voters didn't appreciate what has been given by the Prime Minister to them, for example, his support for vernacular schools and so on.

“The Chinese voters openly supported the DAP policies. The Chinese voters want their own ways to prevail, despite the bumiputras having to 'swallow' the Barisan Nasional's call for compromise to allow the Chinese community to have their wish,” he said here yesterday.

That was the quote taken from The Star in an article titled "Ibrahim labels Chinese as ungrateful".

On 13th December 2009, Dr Mohd Ridhuan Tee Abdullah had this to say about the Malay Supremacy.

The word Malay supremacy does not directly reflect the relationship between a 'master' and its 'slave' as claimed by the ultra kiasu group. If the non-Malay is slave, how the non-Malay has the economic dominance leaving behind the Malay Muslims? Read more. Is there such a thing as Malay supremacy?

I had also written an article that answered some questions from an Indian reader who said that I was shallow in my articles that I had written about what I think DAP is. Surely Mr Prashant Thayaparan believes in upholding the human rights in Malaysia? For example, the right to express the freedom of speech. Don't go harping around about the freedom of speech when you cannot accept someone else expressing their views that are totally different from yours?

Do I need to teach you about the constitution of Malaysia? I am sure you are not that stupid as you acted out to be. Below are the Article 10 of the Constitution of Malaysia.

Article 10 (1) guarantees the freedom of speech, the right to assemble peacefully and the right to form associations to every Malaysian citizen. However, Parliament may by law impose restrictions on these rights in the interest of the security of the Federation, friendly relations with other countries, public order, morality; and restrictions designed to protect the privileges of Parliament, to provide against contempt of court, defamation, or incitement to any offence.

You can read more about the Constitution of Malaysia here if you are so blind about the history of Malaysia.

The Chinese in Gerakan are just the same as in DAP since Dr Koh Tsu Koon had come out with a statement questioning Malay Supremacy in Dec 1st 2008 in an article by NST titled "Koh: Malay supremacy not in Constitution".

He said the question of ketuanan Melayu (Malay supremacy) did not arise as it was not contained in the Federal Constitution.

It is the same with Dr. Chua Soi Lek from MCA. He had written an article in his blog, questioning the continuance of the Malay Supremacy. These are the excerpts from that article.

If the Malays insist on “Ketuanan Melayu” (Malay Supremacy) and that they are supreme in this country, they should not be worried about the advancement by non-Malays since in their mind, they are always supreme. Problems arise because in order to be supreme, they want the non-Malays not to advance. Read here

It seems like Gerakan and MCA, 2 of the Chinese parties that are the component parties in Barisan Nasional is not much different from the racists DAP ultra kiasu.

On 2nd May 2010, PAS the number one traitor of the Malays and the Islamic religion had this to say. PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali said that PAS did not subscribe to "Ketuanan Melayu" and that Islam did not recognise race-based supremacy. "We don't subscribe to Ketuanan Melayu," he told The Malaysian Insider.

Wikipedia defined "Ketuanan Melayu" as Ketuanan Melayu (Malay for Malay supremacy or Malay dominance[1]) is the claim that the Malay people are the tuan (masters) of Malaysia.

Personally, I don't think that it is the right definition. "Ketuanan Melayu" is not Malay supremacy per se. What is so supreme about the Malays when the economy in Malaysia is controlled by the minority Chinese racists?

"There is no such thing as Ketuanan Melayu. We are the underdog."

"The shoe-polisher is not the tuan (master). The man who pays you is the Tuan. I used to have a Chinese driver, he called me Tuan," he quipped.

That is the quote by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad from an article titled "There is no Ketuanan Melayu without parity." Need I say more?

Say whatever that is on your mind. Heck! This is a free country after all. If the racists Chinese can swear at the Malays as much as they want, we can do that as well.

However, I will not be held responsible to whatever that you have to say. The comment is solely the private opinion of the author.
