Excerpt from the STAR today or your information.

Nobody threatened him – not from our side. If he is not guilty, he should not be scared. I think he is just giving excuses. We should leave it to the judicial system to decide.

Is Umno making a mistake by whacking Perkasa?

We are not whacking anybody. We respect any NGO, including Perkasa, whether we support them or not. We respect their stand but we have our own agenda.

Article 152 (on Malay as the national language) and 153 (Malay special rights) are in the Federal Constitution as a social contract among the three races in the country and we should respect this.

Why is it that only when Malay NGOs are trying to protect the interest of Malays that people question it.?

Why did the Chinese not question Chinese NGOs like the Dong Zong (when they raised issues of Chinese interest)?

What do you think of the racist comment made by the Biro Tata Negara assistant director Hamim Husin at the Puteri Umno function?

Is that the principle of BTN? I don’t think so. It was a mistake made by one person. There are many BTN officers who do not use that kind of terminology.

When the Gerakan Wanita chief (Datuk Tan Lian Hoe) made her policy speech (in 2008 which questioned ketuanan Melayu), she was not asked to resign.

But when (Penang) Umno’s Datuk Ahmad Ismail defended the Malays (by describing Chinese as immigrants and squatters), he was asked to leave the party.

We belong to a plural society. We have to get along and discuss sensitive issues rationally, not emotionally.
