Pakatan demands explanation for BTN's only Malays can rule

Malaysia Chronicle

In a sign that pundits said only reflected the duplicity in Prime Minister Najib Razak’s 1Malaysia plan, the National Civics Bureau which falls under his department, continued to crank out racist propaganda aimed at shoring up Malay support for his Umno-BN coalition.

“From long ago, we have always stated that for Malaysians to take 1Malaysia seriously, the first agency to be dismantled must be the BTN," Beruas MP Ngeh Koo Ham told Malaysia Chronicle.

"But Mahathir objected and of course Najib didn’t do anything except promise that BTN courses would no longer contain racist references. But again, this has turned out to be another lie. Najib owes the nation an explanation. A clarification should be made by the BTN.

Only Malays can rule

At an Umno closed-door function on Monday, BTN deputy director Hamim Husin had made comments that suggested that only Malays had the right to rule Malaysia.

Hamim’s words comes hot on the heels of a warning by former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad that should the Malays support the Pakatan Rakyat led by Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, then they would lose political power and suffer bullying by the other races.

According to Mahathir, the prime minister of Malaysia would then be Chinese or Indian or any other non-Malay ethnicity. His remarks drew immediate condemnation, but obviously not from Umno or Najib’s department.

“The rights of Malays, is to rule the country. Simple. Malays must unite in the face of threats,” Malaysian Insider reported Hamim as telling Puteri Umno delegates on Monday.

In an immediate response, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang challenged the non-Malay components in the BN coalition to also demand an explanation from Najib.

“Will Tsu Koon, MCA, BN ministers demand that the Cabinet act against the BTN deputy director?” Kit Siang said on Twitter.
