Dear Tan Sri Rais,
Indians and Chinese were brought in the 1920’s? Really? I guess you are one of the unfortunate millions of Malaysian being a victim of historical distortion.
Indians were forcibly exported into different states to man and toil rubber plantations whilst bringing further development to Malaya via railway networks, road connections and establishment of public utilities.
You mentioned 1920’s but failed to state the special inquiry held before that era on the large scale deaths of Indians due to malaria, snake bites and wild animals.
Didn’t the Indians die in hundreds of thousands in the plantations, building roads and railway lines in 1800’s and early 1900’s? Can you imagine any other higher sacrifice any community could render to a country? For Indians ” Tanah tumpahnya darahku” is very meaningful and we take pride of it.
Didn’t the Indians and Chinese form the backbone of administration, labour and economy in Malaya during the yesteryears?
Do check out the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of 1956 and you will understand the economy of this country would have collapsed if Indians and Chinese were repatriated upon Merdeka.
Our forefathers worked out independence on the basis of “Bersama Maju” and were happy with the political and social arrangements.
I’m happy to share with you the genuine and factual historical documents over a cup of coffee after Raya my dear friend. May the blessings of Almighty be showered upon you during this holy month . . . Waytha Moorthy
My COMMENT on the above fuckedup — read pathetic — statement by Waytha Moorthy . . .
The so-called Malays like Rais Yatim in Malaya who think Malaysia is their grandfather’s property should be referred by the court to the nearest hospital for an evaluation and institutionalised for life to keep the public from harm.
The first Indians and Chinese came to Malaya long before the so-called Malays.
The Indians and Chinese who came to Malaya during the British Empire were subjects of the Queen.
The so-called Malays in Malays were subjects of the sultans on the eve of Merdeka. They were not citizens but stateless people.
The sultans, Indians and Chinese were British subjects who became Malayan citizens under the Federation of Malaya Independence Act 1957 which reinforced the Federation of Malaya Agreement 1948.
The stateless Rohingya are illegal immigrants from Myanmar.
The PTI will cause a 2nd and 3rd surge of the pandemic, maybe V-shaped, W-shaped, U-shaped etc
That’s why they raided the places in Malaya where the illegal immigrants were hiding.
The Rohingya boat people were turned away by Malaya because of the novel Corona virus pandemic.
How did Rais Yatim, a fuckedup Minangkabu from Sumatra, get a PhD in law?
His Opinions won’t stand up in court.
Waytha Moorthy gave a fuckedup –read pathetic — response to Rais Yatim’s Rohingya-related statement.
The issue is that the so-called Malays in Malaya are pendatang who came after the first Indians and Chinese.
Orang Asal are not about race, DNA, geographical origin, religion and politics but ancestral and historical property rights — NCR land — under Adat, Article 161A of the Federal Constitution and the Aboriginal Peoples Act 1954.
The Orang Asal were the first to work the land, by the right of first settlement, in the emptiness and vastness of a geographical expanse bounded by water, mountains and jungle within a natural and easily defended border.
Malaysia belongs to the Orang Asal, they are sharing the country with the non-Orang Asal including the so-called Malays.
There’s no Malay race.
Read the Definition of Malay in Article 160(2). Malay is a form of identity, governed by the Merdeka cutoff point, not race.
It’s an open secret that many people in Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak are holding bogus Malay MyKads. The Definition of Malay under Article 160(2) is confined to Singapore and Malaya. Those holding bogus Malay MyKads in Malaya don’t qualify under the Merdeka cutoff point in Article 160(2).
The Brookes mistakenly referred to the Orang Laut — Kirieng — as Sarawak Malay.
Brunei Malay is a misnomer for Barunai.
The Negrito (Semang) from Kerala, southwest India, were the first people in Malaya.
They came about 40, 000 years ago. The Austronesians first appeared in history about 6, 000 years ago.
The Negrito in Kerala came from east Africa about 70, 000 years ago.
