Aliran did not say it but the fact that they published a letter that batters Tun Dr Mahathir, Umno, Barisan Nasional, MCA and Chua Soi Lek and the government indicates how they support the allegations.
Furthermore, the letter can be put to question. Was it written by 'someone' outside Aliran or by Aliran's proprietor themselves? I have read many Aliran's postings and news and I found the style of writing more of inside job.
And this Open Letter To Chua Soi Lek is also very, very dangerous. It incites the non-Malays, especially the Chinese to reprise against the government and the Malays in order to 'get back what was taken away from them since Independence'.
It accuses the MCA of forming a cahoot with Umno to sideline the Malaysian Chinese by depriving them of so many things, including their low percentage in the public sector, in the Cabinet and for government tenders.
However, those who wrote this should answer themselves as to why not many Chinese joined the police and armed forces, the diplomatic corp and the judiciary. I bet the writer/s know the answer but simply didnt want to admit the reasons behind it.
To Soi Lek, the article asks: "You claim to fight for ‘Chinese rights’. Very often, you say that the government must build more Chinese schools and train more Chinese teachers.
"This is ridiculous! What is the ethnic Chinese representation in the civil service, the police, the army, navy and air force, the diplomatic corps, and the judiciary? You have settled for tokenism in all areas of national life..."
Reading it from A to Z, something very peculiar pops up. It was actually written by a DAP politician as a 'curtain raiser' to Soi Lek and Lim Guan Eng debate.
I also believe the writer wrote it out of his nose, his political-obsession, stupidity and anti-Malay sentiment.
The part about former PM Dr Mahathir is more stinging.
"The MCA supported Mahathir, a real half-past six PM, when the Constitution was amended to set up Syariah courts. This half-past six leader was later to say that he was lucky to get away with that amendment. The MCA cabinet ministers behaved once again like political eunuchs.
"Look at the problems this has created for non-Muslims in conversion cases. Soi Lek, have you heard of the Lina Joy case? Now some religious lunatics are claiming that the civil courts are subordinate to the Syariah courts! Why have you not had the courage to condemn such claims? Where in the world is the federal constitution subordinate to state enactments as in Malaysia?"
It was written on hatred and racism with the intention of helping Pakatan Rakyat wins the next general election.
However, the manner it was written presents a deadly inciting agents that could rip the nation apart, especially if the Chinese take it as everything right and true.
And Aliran is fast becoming a threat to national peace and stability... and yet they retain its logo 'Aliran For Unity'!
