Apartheid is derieved from Afrikaan “Cognate” means separateness. It was a was a system of legal racial segregation enforced by the National Party government in South Africa between 1948 and 1994. The purpose of the system was to protect the Afrirican white from the black. The Blacks were deprived of their right and the government segregated education, medical care, and other public services, and provided black people with services inferior to those of whites.
In Malaysia, after more than 50 years of independent from Britian, similar policy is still practiced here against the Chinese, Indian and to some extent towards the non-Muslim Native like aborogines of Peninsular Malaysia, Kadazan in Sabah and the Dayaks in Sarawak. But the muslim migrant from Indonesia (jawa like Khir Toyo(l)) and Mamaks from India recieved better treatment from BN government. In Malaysia citizens are not equal-that is the starting point for a country that everyone should be equal. In Malaysia there are the Elite, then the Malay and the rest of the Malaysians. The discrimination of Indians, Chinese and other non-Malays such as aborogines of Peninsular Malaysia, Kadazan in Sabah and the Dayaks in Sarawak must end. If there is to be affirmative policy –there must be a Race Relations Act! All the laws that surround Malaysian are to contain Malaysians from their freedom to speak and to peacefully assemble. The Government and politician are protected. Malaysians are frightened of the Government, the Judiciary and the Police! This is a de facto a Police State. There is confusion in the law; a Malay caught for drinking beer in the East coast can be canned but not in the West coast. Malaysians are afraid that Muslim laws will prevail.
Another point to consider, every Institution that was set up to protect democracy-transparency, good governance, anti-corruption and fraud has been disbanded. There is nothing standing presently to suggest that everything done is bon fide, in fact every day we see in the reports and press releases by the opposition of damaging corrupt practices which is ruining Malaysia. Malaysian live in a culture of secrecy which benefits the government.
Fourthly, UMNO itself is a corrupt organization. The cabinet as the Former PM describes is filled with corrupt Ministers. When policy and decision makers are corrupt, what would you expect from the others below? You reap what you sow! Present Barisan Nasional (BN) Government also practicing descrimination against other races and religions. For example when a non-muslim say something about Islam no matter what,UMNO (plus Malay PM and DPM) will all out to condemn the person who made such comment. But when the muslim insulting the other religion, for example the incidence of two Al-Islam journalists consumed the “Holy Communion” and spat out the sacred host. If that was not enough, they humiliated the Christians by having it photographed and its image published in the monthly Al-Islam. This is a violation of Christians in Malaysia and challenges the nation's Federal Constitution. But the BN leaders were just keeping quiet, inclusive PM Najib and DPM Mahyuddin (For me, I dont recognised them as PM or DPM of malaysia). Another example of descrimination by BN against other religions is about the assistance given to muslim and non-muslim organization. There is one Church is Sri Aman that has been destroyed by fire about 10 years ago, but until now, the church has not been rebuilt due to no fund. Request for fund had been forwarded to government but until now no assistance had been recieved. Just imagine if the same thing happen to the mosque, how long do you think the assistance will be given? Will Malaysians, the message and evident is clear..Abandon BN and join PR.
