I am referring of course to the erroneous call of certain racist elements in our multi-ethnic, multi-faithed nation who keep spewing such idiotic slogans and threats against their fellow citizens namely by the nation’s number# 1 racist organization @ Pertubuhan Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu @ PEKEMBAR. Better known by the British Colonial given name as United Malays National Organization or U.M.N.O.
The problem with such myopic individuals asking the citizens of this country who are from the Chinese or Indian ethnicity to ‘return to China or India’ is that such uncouth Malays are simply clueless folks who fail to understand how nationality works?
Anyone born here in this land belong to this land. Period.
There is no such thing as returning to a foreign land from which one’s ancestors came from?
If we are to follow such a notion, then the Orang Asli’s of this land have every God given right to ask all Malays to get the hell out of here and return to Palembang, Sumatera, Indonesia for that is where the former Hindu prince Parameswara sailed from to escape persecution from his enemies!
So, instead of asking anyone to return to any foreign land which by law will never recognise them as their’s in the first place, wake up and learn to speak in a cohesive, rational manner!
Address the issues that one is not happy with instead of resorting to gutter mentalities and adopt racist attitudes which actually run contrary to the faith that one professes?
That is of course, if one is really a faithful believer in the first place!
Many of the nation’s buffoons who are holding this and that official political position expose their lack of leadership qualities when they resort to using such offensive epithets to call upon others to go to anywhere it is that they wish for?
They do not have the right to do so for they are just descendants of immigrants to this land as well!
Such people need to grow up and learn to be leaders in the first place.
Any idiot who keeps calling others to return to China or India ought to first pack up his or her bags and return to Palembang in the first place.
I am sure that the Orang Asli community would love to see that happen and for them to regain what has been taken from them in the very first place.
Will those blabbering loudmouths be man or woman enough to practice what they preach or is it going to be just another case of the cockerel or hen that crows and clucks aloud failing to realise that one’s tail is just full of you know what?
As for those who are guilty of such stupidity, resigning from their positions and allowing other level headed, rational leaders would be most appropriate for the good of this evolving nation.
I wish to remind such loudmouths to refer to the Final Khutba of our beloved Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam as to the rights of others who are not of the same ilk as us but equal in the eyes of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala save for their Iman in Him and their Amals?
The Malaikats Munkar and Naqir are not gonna be bothered as to what ethnicity one is when they start their interrogation of us in our graves?
They won’t ask us as to whether we are bumiputera or otherwise?
They won’t care whether one is a king or a commoner?
They won’t bother as to what car you drove or lived in an ‘istana’ for the matter?
They won’t also care if you have a ‘Tuanku’, ‘Tengku’, ‘Megat’, ‘Raja’, ‘Engku’, ‘Syed’, ‘Nik’, ‘Tun’, ‘Tan Sri’, ‘Datuk Paduka’,’ Datuk Seri’,’Datuk’, ‘Dato’, ‘Haji’ or what ever other honorific that one has before one’s name hereon earth!
- All that they will ask us is who is our Lord?
- Who is our Prophet?
- Who are our Ikhwan?
- What is our Qiblat?
- What is our Imam?
So, to the ones who are so fixated as to the color of one’s skin and so called hereditary, please go back to the basics and start learning about being human.
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala guide us all.
