Mariam Mokhtar: Under what circumstances will you consider a non-Malay as PM?

Choose the best man or woman for our PM.

There is NOTHING in the constitution to say that Malaysian prime ministers must be Malay.

The ultra-nationalists demand PMs be Malay and some non-Malays, who have been conditioned by fear, agree with them.

All our PMs were pseudo-Malays with Thai, Turkish, Arab, Chinese, Indonesian and Indian blood coursing through their veins. You also know which pseudo-Malay PMs betrayed us.

Malay politicians want to lead the nation, but they keep talking about “I want to be a leader who will be known as someone who will defend the Malays and protect Islam.”

Look at how Mercedes-Islam has corrupted the politicians in Kelantan.

Look at the Malay PMs and chairmen of GLCs who stole from the rakyat and the GLCs.

Look at how they collude amongst themselves to get rich and simultaneously destroy the environment by raping our natural resources.

Look at how they mistreat the Orang Asli of Malaysia.

Look at some former Attorney-Generals, IGPs and heads of civil servants who looked after their own interests and not the rakyat’s.

Unity through equity

How does one unite a nation, when one section of the community is treated like ‘Little Emperors’, and the rest is basically neglected? Even one Malay Opposition leader cannot bring himself to rise above race.

On 13 January 2019, at a dinner with his supporters, Anwar urged the non-Malays to understand the concerns of the Malays/bumiputeras who feared that their rights and position would be threatened.

He should have highlighted the betrayal and exploitation of some Malays by other Malays and mention Tabung Haji, Felda, Mara, the silence of the previous Malay-majority cabinet about the scandal involving 1MDB, and embezzlement in the various ministries by senior civil servants.

The enemy

For decades, PAS and Umno-Baru made the outrageous claim that the non-Malays, specifically the Chinese, wanted to destroy Malaysia, make it Christian and get rid of Islam and Muslims.

Actually, the real enemy is within the Malay fold. We have yet to investigate the alleged corruption of the money donated to mosques, or tahfiz schools, which will open another Pandora’s Box.

Affirmative action policies make Malays weak, arrogant and dependent upon handouts.

A lowering of the examination pass mark, for the Malays, is self-defeating. The Malays cannot thrive in an environment that stifles competition and creativity. In the law of the jungle, only the fittest and those who are willing to adapt will survive.

We must get rid of affirmative action policies and help all Malaysians, irrespective of skin colour or religion. Get rid of the bangsa and agama (race and religion) on our identity card.

Rakyat must stop being in denial

Some “Malay” PMs double-crossed the rakyat with their corruption and abuse of power. MO1 brought Malaysia to its knees.

MO1’s corruption did not start during his tenure. The slide started earlier but worsened with MO1 and his docile cabinet.

So, choose the best man or woman for our PM. He, or she, need NOT be Malay.

We need a Malaysian who will fight for the interests of all of Malaysia, and not just a section of the population.

I can already hear your excuses.

Remember that in the week before GE-14, most of you thought Umno-Baru could NOT be defeated; but they were.

So, what’s to stop another miracle from happening?

Every Malaysian deserves an equal chance.
