Don't apologise, Zahid!

No need to apologise, bro Zahid. Whether some quarters of the community were hurt by your statement about the 'less sense of patriotism' among the non-Malays for not joining the armed forces, you should stand by what you said as that is what most Malaysians are!

I did mention in my earlier postings here and here that 'the Chinese will only be interested to join the army and defend a country where they form the majority...' And that is a pure fact! Had Singapore still a part of Malaysia, they will leave the armed forces to the Malays but now that Singapore is theirs, they are more than willing to defend the Republic!

Sound harsh, isnt it?

However, look at some countries where the Chinese are the second largest majority. The United States, Canada and Australia for instance, do you see many of them in the armed forces?

The people who asked you to apologise at the Dewan Rakyat (here) are looking for some political mileage. As Pak Lah's era has opened a wide door for the non-Malays to question the status of the Malay monarchy and the rights/privilege of the Malays and Bumiputras, they are looking down at the Malay politics.

Even those from MCA and MIC are getting so vociferous in questioning such issues. The Malays had long accepted the fact that the duty to defend the country is theirs while other Malaysians could sleep well and digging money and gold for their own prosperity.

No, bro... this is not about racism. This is fact. So, their minor participation in the armed forces has nothing to do with patriotism. Not joining the army too has nothing to do with it. If they are patriotic enough, they would accept the fact that the Malays are still far behind them and as such they must not question the rights for them to advance.

(read jebat berkokok and listen to what Zahid says on U-Tube)

Where did the Indonesian Chinese go when racial riots erupted in 1999 and 2000?

So, no need to rekindle the past. There were many Chinese and Indians, together with their friends from Iban, Dayak, Murut, Khadazan and other tribes who fought against the colonials and communist. Those were the days.

And why did the British bring the Chinese and Indians to Malaya during the early days? To defend the land?

So, let's live with the fact that the Malays are keeping the motherland safe and sound for others to become rich! Nothing is wrong with that!

you are rite, jai.

why must he be apologetic? and why must the malays of late are so easy to apologise over small issue when they, the non-malays didnt apologise for things they did and said?

this is nothing to do with racism. this is all about attitude.

its the malays who, at all times, have to take care of the non-malays' feeling and sensitivity. do they care about our feeling? no!

so, this armed forces issue, for instance has been going on since independence. did the malays complaint? the answer is no because we know they are not interested to take part.

on-call said...

what you wrote about 'a country where they form the majority' is absolutely right.

look at singapore. if the island is still a part of malaysia, the chinese would not be bothered to join the armed forces.

right! very, very right!

zahid dah kena pressure dengan orang atas la tu.

orang atas asyik nak jaga hati orang lain. walhal 'orang lain' ni asyik nak menyakitkan hati orang melayu!

inilah kelebihan dan kelemahan umno.

BIARKANLAH!

charlie said...

dont u think its an asset if the malays dominate the armed forces?

think about it!

HHalem said...

Zahid ni memang bodoh bendul. Biarlah Melayu controlled army. Lagi baik. Lagi baik kalu PM dari Army. Cuba bayangkan.

Orang bebal saja, dok kacau Cina India, bukan Patriotic. Hakikat biarkan hakikat.

Kalu Kit Siang DAP contolled Mesia, cuba banyangkan juga. 5 orang Army General dari Cina.

Walau apa pun terjadi itu lah kenyataan. Zahid tak perlu minta maaf,kerana mereka ni ramai kerayatan Malaysia tapi tak ramai yang faham bahasa...!

Lihat lah contoh yang paling dekat, Singapura. Mereka tak pernah minta maaf atas tindakan atau kata2 yang wajar bagi mereka. Mereka buat dek aja. Kalau nak cerita issue pertahanan negara nya tak habis. Apa yang Tun M pernah cakapkan dulu tu semuanya benar. Pat ini tak racist bagi mereka. Di sana nampak amandamai tetapi masih ada yang tak puas hati - sebab ada nya ji. Fikir2 kan lah.

kalau asyik nak minta maaf je, tak jadi keje la melayu ni

benjo said...

orang yang salah sangka dengan kenyataan zahid yang patut minta maaf kerana kenyataan merekalah yang mengeruhkan keadaan.

ikhwan said...

not that the chinese are not patriotic but not patriotic enough. i agree with your comment that they will only defend the country where they form the majority.

dawson said...

small issue bro.

jantina said...

bukan ke sekarang ni ada intake baru rekrut ATM.

kita tengok berapa ramai bukan melayu yang mohon

OKY said...

melayu sudah lama hidup dengan orang cina, india dan kaum lain.

mereka tak kisah pun jika penyertaan orang cina dalam angkatan tentera amal kecil, malah mereka tak pernah merungut.

cuma melayu terkilan kerana ketika mereka tidak mempersoalkan patriotisme bangsa lain, bangsa lain pula mempersoalkan hak mereka.

inkah yang kita mahu?

kolonel bersara said...

that words didnt come from zahid. the answer or the statement was prepared my mindef.

so, why must he apologise?

erlangga said...

yes, no need to apologise.

let us, the malays, control the armed forces and the police.

anything wrong, we know who should we protect!

musuh big dog said...

bodoh la! jawapan tu disediakan oleh mindef, bukan datang dari zahid. dia cuma baca je.

apa la bangang orang pembangkang dan ketua kaum lain ni!

suruh la mindef yang minta maaf. zahid bukan mindef. dia menteri je.

jebat berkokok said...

Jangan ada Hisham kedua pulak..sampai ke sudah orang tak hormat kita kalau asyik minta maaf walaupun bukan salah kita

malayawatak said...

semua tau yang orang melayu ni amat bertolak ansur dan banyak mengalah dalam hal2 tertentu.

tak kisahlah bangsa lain tak minat masih askar tapi diharap jangan ada pihak yang persoal hak melayu.

tak elok jadinya nanti!
