No compromise in security matters!
No compromise and no discount on national security. This is our country and we are fully responsible in putting the house to order. We may not be popular among the minority but the masses will surely want you and your generals to continue developing the nation and prospering the people.
No foreign powers have any rights to interfere in our security matters and the set of laws introduced. They may as well take care of their domestic problems first before commenting on others. As much as we have been staying away from making remarks about their domestic problem, we also want them to stay clear of ours.
We have been through some bad political and racial episodes. The May 13 1969 have taught us, Malaysians, to be more resilient and more tolerant. As to whether we are Malays, Chinese, Indians or others, Malaysia is and will remain ours to manage. If we choose to be racist, we will in the end have to pay a heavy price for our wrongdoing and bad intention.
Although the threat of communism is no longer part of our worries, radical and extremist politics are equal to it. Those propagating any form of extremism are equal to other forms of subversive, and that calls for a tough and strict counter-measure to put it off.
We also cannot afford another Memali and Sauk incidents where religious fanatics tried to run down the country by deviations and war. We just cannot tolerate another fanatism in our effort to boost the economy and strengthening inter-racial and inter-religious understanding among the people.
We need moderate leaders, those who are able to see and weigh various sentiments in a unique country like ours. We need politics of the moderates and not any form of politics of extremism that can plunge the whole nation into chaos and disorder.
I believe most Malaysians are peace-lovers and will reject such politics.
The Internal Security Act (ISA) has proven very effective in putting the house in order. Although it is no longer in practice, some elements of it need to be retained.
Whether the Opposition or their foreign agents like it or not, we need an effective set of laws to weed out elements of subversive from our compound. Some governments that lambasted our laws are actually the ones imposing the most draconian laws themselves.
I do not wish to write more. As the leader, you know what is best for the country and the people.
And as a rakyat, I have my own obligation to fulfill.
