Hari ini adalah hari ketujuh selepas saya signed for the petition tolak ICERD tanpa bagi tahu siapa-siapa pun. Saya percaya lepas saya mengumumkan kepada dunia ini saya telah betul-betul signed petisyen tolak ICERD, dah expect lah serangan kuat daripada kaum sesama bangsa saya ini dan cybertroopers / RBA daripada DAP tentu tak akan lepaskan peluang ini untuk namakan saya pengkhianat bangsa ke, anjing MCA ke, anjing PAS ke, anjing UMNO dan macam-macam gelaran that you can think of.
Kepada sesiapa yang tidak bersetuju dengan saya, awak ada hak awak tidak sign petisyen ini, tetapi tiada hak untuk melarang saya buat demikian. Itu hak saya.
Saya signed petisyen tolak ICERD lepas baca apa yang Tun Tan Siew Sin dan Tun Sambathan pernah cakap…
“The Malays, through Umno, were generous enough to relax the citizenship laws of this country to such an extent that within 12 months of independence, 90 per cent of the non-Malays became citizens. This was different from the situation before Merdeka where 90 per cent of the non-Malays were still non-citizens after nearly 100 years of colonial rule in the Malay states. In return for this major concession, the MCA and the MIC agreed to continue the policy of preserving the special position of the Malays while at the same time upholding the legitimate interests of other communities.”
The other individual is Tun V. T. Sambanthan. He was one of those who fought for the independence of this country along with Tunku Abdul Rahman and Tun Tan Cheng Lock. He was the fifth president of MIC, from 1955 to 1973. This was then the only political party representing the Indians in Malaya.
He had said: “Now, what did the Malays do — since we are speaking on racial lines — what did the Malay leadership do? They had 88 per cent of the electorate still with them. What did they do about citizenship? If we look around Asia and East Asia, particularly, you will find that my race, the Indian race, is not welcomed in Ceylon, is not welcomed in Burma. Look at my brothers the Chinese, they are not welcomed in Thailand, in Vietnam, in Cambodia, in all the other areas. What help do they get in all these territories in matters of citizenship?
“And yet, in Malaya, what has happened? Here, we found the Malay leaders saying, ‘We shall take them unto ourselves as brothers, we shall give them full opportunity to live in this country, we shall give them every opportunity to become citizens.
“And so, in 1957, language qualifications were waived, and tens of thousands of Indians, Chinese, and Ceylonese became citizens. As I have said, it has been my great good fortune to have been born in this country. Where else can you find a more charitable, more polite, more decent race than the Malays?
Where else can you get such politically decent treatment for any immigrant race? Where else in the history of the world? These are the facts. Who are you to safeguard us? I am of the 10 per cent of the minority race here. But, I am happy here.”
Bagi saya, sebenarnya sangat simple aje, anything that can destroy the harmonious of our country, IT HAS TO BE OUT!
For example, if Roket jejaskan perpaduan, Roket has to be out of this beautiful country; if ratifikasi ICERD akan menyebabkan ketegangan antara kaum-kaum, ICERD has to be out of our motherland too.
Kita semua ni anak Malaysia bukan orang barat, kita ada cara hidup kita sendiri, kenapa kita nak buta-buta ikut cara hidup negara barat? Mereka batalkan hukuman mati, ahli-ahli parlimen DAP cepat-capat nak ikut, sekarang pula nak tergesa-gesa ratify ICERD.
Malaysia is the most unique and diversified country in this world, kita tak perlu orang luar untuk mengajar kita apa yang seharusnya dan apa yang seharusnya kita tidak buat. Sangat susahkah nak faham konsep ini, kerajaan pakatan Harapan?
