'Malay supremacy does not exist'

Dec 9, 2010

KUALA LUMPUR - MALAY supremacy does not exist, contends Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz.

He says the notion has been repeatedly misinterpreted by certain leaders for political gain. 'Politicians should stop using racial sentiments to gain support from their own race.

'They are elected by Malaysians, therefore Malaysians should come first,' he said.

He added that the idea of Malay supremacy should not be confused with Malay privileges.

'Why do they need privileges if they are more supreme? Privileges are for handicapped people,' Nazri said after launching the Nayagankini and Pertubuhan Perkhidmatan Rakyat Malaysia (PPRM) blog,

He also said there was no master-slave relationship in Malay supremacy as it was meant to symbolise the sovereignty of the Malay Rulers. -- THE STAR/ANN

[What? an UMNO minister disavowing "Malay Supremacy"? And moving dangerously close to a "Malaysian Malaysia"? LKY would be dancing in his grave. Oh wait, he's not dead yet. ]
