Perkasa hates Chinese politicians, not race

The movement says it has an axe to grind with Chinese politicians who call for the abolishment of the bumiputera and Malays' special position.

PETALING JAYA: Perkasa clarified that it does not hate the Chinese, but has an axe to grind with Chinese politicians who call for the abolishment of the bumiputera and Malays’ special position.“These politicians do not respect the Federal Constitution,” said Perkasa supreme council member Ahmad Sujak in a statement on behalf of the movement’s president, Ibrahim Ali.

“Some even insult Islam and misuse the Quran,” he added, vowing that Perkasa would continue to defend what it considered the rights of Malays and bumiputeras.

Sujak was responding to MCA publicity chief Heng Seai Kie who reportedly said that the Malay right-wing movement despised the Chinese.

He also lambasted Heng for blaming Perkasa and the Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia for the loss of Chinese support in the last general election in 2008 and this month’s Sarawak state polls.

Describing her as being “ignorant of history”, Sujak said that Perkasa had not been formed during the last general election.

He also said the main reason behind the decline of Chinese support for Barisan Nasional was because MCA had a “sex actor” as its president.

“The main reason MCA was rejected in the 12th general election was the exposure of Dr Chua Soi Lek’s video, which also indirectly led to the resignation of MCA Wanita chief Chew Mei Fun in 2009,” he added.

Sujak said many of MCA’s “immoral” leaders were also charged with corruption, criminal breach of trust and abuse of power, and this eroded the community’s faith in the party.

As for Sarawak, the Perkasa leader reminded Heng that the movement did not hit the campaign trail there.

He said other ethnic groups in Sarawak had supported BN, and even if 100% Chinese supported BN, the ruling coalition could not form the state government if other bumiputeras rejected it in total.

“Which is more important, 100% bumiputera support or 100% Chinese support? There is no need for any Chinese representation in the Sarawak government,” he added.

Sujak also warned MCA against hurting the feelings of Malays, since their votes were important for the party’s leaders.

“Enough of blaming Perkasa and wake up. MCA leaders should stop covering up their weaknesses and blaming others. MCA has become a joke of a party that is without dignity,” he said- - FMT
