Recently, in his attempt to install a puppet President, the Malay race has been slandered by the Singapore dictator Prime Minister and his government of mindless parrots. According to Lee Hsien Loong, a “Malay” is someone who must be a Muslim “from the Malay community”. The dictator even have a 16-member committee to decide if one’s blood running in a candidate’s veins is “Malay” or otherwise. This is of course hogwash, and rightfully being rejected by Singaporeans.
Who are the Malays? Simply put in, they are the indigenous race of Singapore according to Article 152 of the Singapore Constitution.
“(2) The Government shall exercise its functions in such manner as to recognise the special position of the Malays, who are the indigenous people of Singapore, and accordingly it shall be the responsibility of the Government to protect, safeguard, support, foster and promote their political, educational, religious, economic, social and cultural interests and the Malay language.’”
Malays in Singapore enjoy special rights (and rightfully of course) that of indigenous people in first world countries like the Torres Straits Islanders in Australia and the Maoris in New Zealand. Just like Chinese and Indians, there are also Malays who are non-Muslims as it is legal for Malay Singaporeans to switch or renounce religion recorded in their NRIC identity card.
However, one can never switch or renounce one’s race because a race is internationally defined by DNA and gene. As such, Halimah Yacob is an Indian because her father is Indian. She can switch her religion to a Muslim but she can never be a Malay because she is as Indian as she is female. One can go for a sex change operation, but how does one go surgical for a race change? Michael Jackson is still of a African heritage even after he bleached his skin white.
The Singapore dictatorship is causing irreparable damage to racial harmony with lopsided logic to suit their political agenda. Public arguments presented by Minister Chan Chun Sing, Janil Puthucheary and K Shanmugam should rightfully warrant an arrest from the Internal Security Department, as their speeches greatly hurt the feelings of the Malay race. The reserved Presidential Election should also be banned because it erodes meritocracy as ESM Goh Chok Tong pointed out, and the chief culprit Lee Hsien Loong should be jailed, for his corruption is turning the country upside down as he did to his own house.
