At the 61st Umno general assembly opening speech Najib Razak said that Malaysia needs a new basis for race relation based on a shared future, historical facts and today’s reality. But will he uphold the long overdue historical fact of the history and reality of the minorities?
At the same time Najib Razak also issued a rallying cry for party members at the Umno general assembly to defend Putrajaya at all costs. “Even if our bodies are crushed and our lives lost, brothers and sisters, whatever happens, we must defend Putrajaya. The decision of who goes to Putrajaya is not in the hands of UMNO but in the hand of the people and this One Malay-sia. Najib Razak is threatening that they will create chaos to defend Putrajaya in the upcoming election.
Najib also said that the country was founded upon a social contract where the forefathers of non-Malays had accepted the special position of Malays under Article 153 of the constitution. But he did not elaborate on 153 (1) that it shall be the responsibility of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to safeguard the legitimate interests of other communities in accordance with the provisions of this Article. Have the legitimate interest of the minorities been taken care?
UMNO been lying for the past 53 years and MIC, MCA,PPP, Gerakan, etc are aiding and abetting this lies. There has never been a social contract but only Federal Constitution and the special position agreed upon was only for a period of 15 years. Has it been reviewed?
When Malaya was in the process of getting its independence on 1957, the Reid Commission was formed to draft out the Malaysian Constitution. There were hundreds of memorandums sent to the Reid Commission by Malayan Indian associations and individuals for equal rights and their concerns. Will Najib Razak share the historical facts based on the memorandums send by Malayan Indians to the Reid Commission?
In 2007 Hindraf Legal Advisor P.Uthayakumar researched the archives in Kew, London, on the original documents submitted for the drafting of Federal Constitution to the Reid Commission. Below are the meetings held by The Federation of the Malaya Constitutional Commission 1956 and memorandum send by Malayan Indians to Reid Commission.
