"I am more inclined to view Bangsa Malaysia as a state of mind to eradicate social prejudices and differences among the races. If we accept this and avoid polemics on definition, we can avoid arousing controversies."
I'm not sure whether can the Malaysia Deputy Prime Minister Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak still say the same if he belongs to the marginalised. Eradicating social prejudices and differences among the races is not a matter of the state of the mind. Wake up DPM! Stop dreaming at the la-la land. There is marginalisation in the society. No one can deny that. The under-priviledged groups are trying to improve their living condition, fighting for their own rights, believing trans-racial justice can be met. And that's the reason why we need a government who would treat each race and ethnic groups equaly.
If it's just a state of the mind, why then the over-reaction being mounted by the priviledged group when the marginalised tries to leverage the benefit distribution among the nations? Doesn't it seems like one's slapping one's mouth here?
On one hand, he is gesturing to calm the marginalised, with the other, he is keeping the borders of the under-priviledged groups in tact. Is this the way a leader cares for his nation when inequality is being experienced by the people generation after generation?
Remember the golden rule? It always keep one on track of what is fair and not fair:
"Do unto others what you want others do unto you"
The nation needs a leader not someone who gibberishes. "...avoid polemics on definition, we can avoid arousing controversies"?? His statement is as controversial as any other issues troubling the nations.
