Of Malaysia Day is not about Sabah and Sarawak
September 16th, 2010 by Hafiz Noor Shams
The last general election does change a lot of things. From an unrecognized date, September 16 has been a public holiday for the past 2 years.
While I am happy that the Day is finally being recognized, I find that the idea of Malaysia Day in the mind of the federal government and what I call Malaysia Day-neophytes really revolves around the celebration of Sabah and Sarawak. I despise that.
This is moving from a wrong to another wrong.
Malaysia Day is not the celebration of the independence of Sabah or Sarawak. History does not say so. Sabah gained independence from the British on August 31 1963. Sarawak gained its independence from the British on July 22 1963. It was Malaysia that was formed on September 16 in that same year.
Dr Mahathir is the worst thing that has happened to this country.
All he cares about is himself, his family, his relatives, his friends and his cronies.
It doesn’t require a PhD to analyze the reasons why many malays are still poor for the new economy in spite of the NEP and all we hear – the true reason for the failure of the malays are MAHATHIR MAHATHIR MAHATHIR……….and nothing else.
Mahathir biggest achievements are not the white elephant KLIA, the robber highways, the meaningless Twin Towers, ghost town Putrajaya, failed MSC, sweat shop factories run with foreign labour, etc.
His true achievements are the destruction of good governance, law and order, quality education, religious brotherhood, peace and harmony.
The name Melayu is an Indian word to denote hills or mountain range. There is a place in south India called Melayur.
Indigenous people who marry Muslim Indians from Melayur identified themselves as Melayur.
Over time, as the malay kingdom spead through insular SEA, the word Melayur became simply as Melayu.
If one were to do genetic test on the modern malay in Peninsula Malaysia, they would invariably carry genetics from Indian to explain the darker complexion and kinky hair of most malays as opposed to the Mongolid look of some malays of original Malayo Polynesian, Dusun or Dayak stocks.
The real natives or indigenous people of the Peninsula Malaysia can be found in the northern parts of Peninusla Malaysia apart from the aborigines.
REMEMBER THE SEPTEMBER 16 INCIDENT, WITHOUT 308 POLITICAL TSUNAMI THAT HAVE DEFEATED BN AND UMNOZOMBIE IN FEW STATES, THEN NO SEMPTEMBER 16 CELEBRATION!
BN CAN NOT BE TRUSTED!
NEVER VOTE BN!
ALL SARAWAKIANS, SABAHANS, MALAYSIANS SHOULD NOT VOTE BN!!!!!!!!!!
