I wonder where were these Umno and pro-Umno patriots when the above Chinese Malaysians died for their country?

Yes, Kok Khoon, Paul Goh, spread the truth and it will destroy the propaganda of UMNO/BN and its fellow criminals like MCA (Make Chinese Angry) and MIC (Make Indians Cry).

Apart from the armed sacrifices of the non-Malays, which include the Chinese, Indians, Ibans, Kadazans, Sikhs and the "dan lain-lain" groups who died fighting for independence and then defeating the communist insurgency, the whole history of Malaya/Malaysia has been perversely revised, to erase totally any mention of the non-Malay, non-Muslim contributions to nation building.

You hardly see any mention of Yap Ah Loy as the founder to Kuala Lumpur in the SPM history books anymore, only the glory of Islam, which is twisted, since the early Malayan kingdoms were all Hindu, rather than Islamic.

You find no trace of the role of the British colonial power in building the country - the railroad tracks, the roads, the airports, the schools, the civil service, the rubber industry, the tin mines etc. It is as if Malaya/Malaysia came into being out of thin air.

And - although it may be an urban myth - I read that when some archaeologist presented his research findings that Hang Tuah could've been a Chinese, the mention of him in Malay history was immediately played down in the syllabus.

All this is revisionism of the worst kind - a kind of ethnic-cleansing of the country's collective memory.

Again, spread the truth and destroy the racist-religious propaganda of UMNO/BN and its quislings in MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP etc.

Good wishes,
Choong Sin/Zhong Xin.

Astro AEC Channel 301 a few years back, had featured a series depicting the many surviving chinese militarymen who had served with distinction in the navy, air force and army during the merdeka days until present. They related their encounters and experiences when dealing with threats to the country.The DVD is available in Popular bookshops under the tile "Roots".
In fact, New Straits Times more than a decade ago did a series on non-Malay police officers who worked in the Special Branch and who had successfully defeated the communists. Among them is Paul Kong mentioned below. It also mentioned some of our Indian officers who sacrificed their lives for the nation.
There is a long and proud list of non-Malay army and police officers who were awarded the country's two highest gallantry awards ie SP and PGB. One of the awardees of the SP, Kalang anak Langkau, the Sarawakian ranger, just passed away last month.
Unfortunately, the malay masses presently are not fully aware of the sacrifices of their non-Malay brethens in defending the country's security and well being due to the slanted coverage in the Malay media.

Chinese M'sians, too, have died for one Malaysia
Please pass this on to as many people as possible.
When I read ‘Sabah Incursion: Hang the Traitors’ by A Kadir Jasin, a pro-Umno blogger (a former group editor-in-chief of New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd and at times also a Berita Harian columnist),  I was disappointed by his tone in the opening paragraphs of his blog post, which stated:
“As has always been the case, when we send our policemen and soldiers into battle and are killed or injured, the chances are they are Melayus and bumiputeras.
“Perhaps there is wisdom in getting more Chinese and Indians to join the armed forces so that they, too, can die for one Malaysia.”
I would like to draw his and your readers' attention to the huge sacrifices Chinese Malaysians have made for their country while serving in the Royal Malaysian Police.
But before I come to that, it may be worthwhile to ask ourselves why in the recent tragedy in the Lahad Datu and Semporna areas in eastern Sabah, there has been no Chinese police death. Not that I wish for Chinese deaths or for that matter, any Malaysian deaths, but we, especially Pak Kadir, must be honest and ask ourselves why the casualties have been confined to the Malay policemen.
But then Pak Kadir answered that himself when he suggested that “Perhaps there is wisdom in getting more Chinese and Indians to join the armed forces so that they, too, can die for one Malaysia” but in a regretful tone that sounds caustic, unfair and indeed morbid.
All right then, who’s to be blamed for the Malays bearing all the greatest sacrifice to their nation? Surely not the Chinese for in 'less divisive' days, we depended heavily (though not solely) on mainly Chinese policemen (and women) in the Special Branch to win our war against the insurrection of the Communist Party of Malaya (CPM). Thus we should remember our Chinese Police heroes, people such as:

* Yeoh Chew Bik (killed by communist terrorists (CTs) at Sebarang Perai);
* Koh Ah Cheng (killed by CTs at Bukit Kepong police station; ironically the communist assailants were led by a Malay communist, Muhammad Indera);
* Loh Ah Chu (killed by CTs at Bukit Berapit, Perak);
* Chan Eng Teck (killed by CTs at Bukit Berapit, Perak);
* Ang Lock Say (killed by CTs at Bukit Berapit, Perak);
* Yeap Sean Hua (killed on duty while apprehending a criminal at Setapak; another policeman, Fong Thean Kit, who was off duty but heard the shot gave chase and apprehended the killer); [Important note: Both Yeap (posthumously) and Fong were awarded Malaysia’s highest gallantry award, the Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa (SP).]
* Chin Chin Kooi (Special Branch chief inspector who served in the police for 21 years - shot at point blank range and killed by unknown slayers; before he died he managed to shoot back); [Important note: Chin was posthumously awarded the SP];
* Lee Han Cheong (a sergeant and Police Field Force (PFF) patrol leader was killed by CTs near Bidor);
* Deputy Comm Khoo Chong Kong (killed by communist subversives in Perak).
Pivotal to defeat of communist terrorist movement
Two other Special Branch police officers who are still alive today were awarded the SP, namely Supt Paul Kiong and Deputy Supt Sia Boon Chee. Without exaggeration, I would consider these two officers’ contributions (presumably still under secret classification) as pivotal to the defeat of the communist terrorist movement in peninsula Malaysia.
Thus five Chinese police officers were awarded the nation’s highest gallantry award, the Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa, two posthumously. I hope Pak Kadir takes note of this.
Then there were Chinese in the Armed Forces who showed their loyalty to their nation by making the ultimate sacrifices, Royal Malaysian Air Force (TUDM) officers like the late Lt Choo Yoke Boo and the late Lt Chang Tatt Min who were both awarded the Pingat Gagah Berani (PGB) posthumously. One Ranger officer, 2nd Lt David Fu Chee Ming who I believe is still alive today, was also awarded the PGB.
2nd Lt David Fu was the platoon commander of 8th Platoon of C Company, 4th Battalion Royal Rangers who was tasked and placed in the Tanah Hitam area of Perak to track and destroy the enemy in his sector of operation. This was the citation for his award of the PGB:
On Aug 27, 1970, his platoon of 24 men made contact with a group of about 70 enemy combatants. The enemy unknowingly had entered his sector. Thus started a heavy and intensive battle lasting seven hours. Under his unwavering leadership, the men fought on, successfully killed four of the enemy. His patrol did not suffer any casualties.
For his outstanding gallantry and bravery in the finest traditions of the Ranger Corps he was bestowed with the Pingat Gagah Berani, by the Agong.
He left after exemplary service as a captain.
Pak Kadir has not been unlike Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who on Nov 9, 2010, predictably as to be expected for the archetypical Umno ‘patriots’, stated in response to a question in Parliament that the low number of Chinese and Indian recruits in the military could be due to the Chinese and Indians [being] ‘not patriotic enough’.
Zahid, once a very close ally of Anwar Ibrahim and the man who accused Dr Mahathir Mohamad of corruption and cronyism in an alleged impatient move by the Anwar faction in Umno to nudge then-PM Mahathir out for Anwar’s final ascendancy to the PM’s post, but who has since abandoned his allegiance to Anwar to be allied to Najib, is hardly an appropriate person to talk about patriotism or loyalty.
I wonder where were these Umno and pro-Umno patriots when the above Chinese Malaysians died for their country?
As Aldous Huxley informed us: “One of the great attractions of patriotism - it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what’s more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.”
