Malaysians with Indian ancestry are so stuck in the racial crap created and carved by Samy Vellu for the last 30 years. This is a 30 years screw up of the mind and I hold Samy Vellu responsible for this.
Why have to follow the racist Umno style of thinking? This racist thinking has caused Malaysians of Indian ancestry to suffer from complexity problems. Until and unless Malaysians with Indian ancestry get rid of the racial feelings and resolve to fight for the struggles and reforms as a Malaysian they will surely be left behind in the wider context even come 2050.
Let face it, those who embrace the Malaysian identity will rise with the rest of the Malaysians. This country belongs to all Malaysians and not to any one particular community.
This is a beautiful country and lets not screw it and divide it by race.
We have such a rich ancestry and diversity which we should bring together and make Malaysia a unique nation a melting pot of this diversity.
I myself will never, yes NEVER, ever join any racial based political party which thrives on ethnicity. I and my family are color blind and I thank my parents for having instilled this in me. I even married a Sabahan Bumiputra and created 2 kids who don’t even know their race. My children are very much colour blind like me. I instilled this on them and I am proud of this.
Now lets look at the Bukit Selambau situation. Abang Anwar gave the seat to a Malaysian of Indian ancestry to represent Pakatan Rakyat. What else do they want? Why create all the fuss about the candidate? Why cant they see the big picture? Just because MGR their idol is not selected to stand, the idiots make it difficult for the person selected by the party. What kind of thinking is this? That is why I say their heads are all screwed. Perhaps Abang Anwar should give the seat back to a Malay candidate since it’s a Malay majority seat and in the last election the last PKR candidate was a Malay. Afterall, this Arumugam fellow who won the seat the last time because of the disqualification of the PKR candidate was with the help of Malay votes.
See here what PET has got to say about Malaysians of Indian ancestry and he calls them BODOH PUNYA INDIA and I agree with him fully.
I know that people from Italy are called Italians, people from Germany are called Germans, people from Russia are called Russians, people from China are called Chinese, people from India are called Indians, and so on and so forth. Therefore, it goes without saying that people from Malaysia are called Malaysians. But those Malaysians whose forefathers came to Malaysia from India in the 1850s to around 1920 or so still want to be known as Indians even though they and their parents were all born in Malaysia.
Read my lips, very slowly. Those born in Malaysia are Malaysians while those born in India are Indians. You can’t be born in Malaysia and yet still be Indians. Get it? Or must I repeat that?
Enough of all this Indian this and Indian that! Who the shit cares about Indian rights and Indian interests? We are fighting for Malaysian rights and Malaysian interests. It is Ketuanan Rakyat. Not KetuananIndia just like Ketuanan Melayu a la Umno.
I once had an argument with a Hindraf supporter and he tried to impress upon me that the Indians need to be represented and they need an Indian to represent them. I asked this chap whether he is Indian and he replied that he is. Then go back to India, I told him. Indians live in India. Malaysians live in Malaysia. He then corrected himself and said that he is a Malaysian.
In that case, I replied, why do you want an Indian to represent you? Can’t I, a Malay, be your representative? Why must it be an Indian? I too can represent the Indians and serve the Indians.
This Hindraf chap then asked me how I would feel if an Indian represented me. Considering I am Malay, can I accept an Indian Prime Minister? Of course I can, I replied. In fact, I accepted an Indian Prime Minister for 22 years. The only thing is I never saw him as an Indian or even addressed him as an Indian. I just addressed him as Datuk Seri (now Tun) Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
I am not the problem, I told this chap. You are. You look at things from an Indian perspective. I look at it from a Malaysian perspective. Anwar Ibrahim is half-Indian. Wan Azizah, according to Umno, is half-Chinese. I am half-Malay. Many of my very close friends and relatives are half this or half that. But we never, I repeat never, address each other or look at each other through coloured lenses. We are absolutely and thoroughly colour-blind.
I would like to pack all those who shout and scream that they are Indians into a tongkang and send them back to India where they belong. Bodoh punya India!”
