What ‘Social Contract’ Mr. Prime Minister Najib? Where is it in writing? Or is it license to bully the poor and politically powerless Indians? Why supremacist Article 153 after 53 years of Merdeka?

url what In today Utusan Malaysia headlines 7/9/10 the racist and religious supremacist UMNO Prime Minsiter Najib Razak plays to the 60% majoritarian Malay muslim gallery with the headlines screaming to the effect, “Don’t question Malay muslim supremacy in One Malay-sia”.

To start off with where is this much hyped about Social Contract in writing? There is nothing in writing! When the social contract is not in writing how can one even question it in the first place? But only going by the Malay muslim supremacist logic is this possible. And not by the universally accepted standards.

Well it is never in the Federal Constitution as we have perused the proposals to the Reid Commission which formulated Article 153 of the Federal Constitution.

The closest is where we can only see the then Alliance Party’s (now Barisan Nasional) proposal to the Reid Commission, the gist of which is in ‘50 years of Violations Of The Federal Constitution By The Malaysian Government’, compiled by P. Uthayakumar: Venue : Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall Kuala Lumpur on 28/7/2007 at 7.00 p.m. Organised By : Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) at pages 34, 35 & 36 are as follows:-

These are the only provisions that our nation’s forefathers had agreed to as stated by UMNO Prime Minister Najib Razak in The Sun 7/9/10 at page …..

But there is nowhere in the Alliance proposal of the much hyped Article 153 of the Federal Constitution it shall be the responsibility of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to safeguard the special position of the Malays and natives of any of the States of Sabah and Sarawak which permits or authorizes the Malay muslims to sweep clean @sapu licin and dish out mere peanuts and crumbs to the Indians for UMNO’s wayang kulit showpieces and showcases.

Why go far. In fact the second limb of Article 153 “the legitimate  interests of other communities in accordance with the provisions of this Article” protects especially the Indian poor from being segregated and excluded from the mainstream development of Malaysia.

But UMNO refused to follow the Federal Constitution or the law. UMNO uses their majoritarian might the 100,000 almost all malay muslim police force, another 100,000 or so army and the 1.2 million civil servants to segregate and socially engineer to keep the poor Indians poor and make the poor Indians poorer.

The brute truth is UMNO keeps harping on Article 153 and the social contract to bully especially the poor Indians and keep them segregated from One Malay-sia. Najib is telling the Indians that the cream and meat is for the Malay muslims and the leftovers and crumbs for the Indians and Najib insists that this is One Malay-sia.
