Malays Are Ashamed of Being Malays
By Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad
I was told there Malay youngsters who push their own race. They feel ashamed for admitting they allegedly racist Malays make them. A person who is branded a racist means that they are narrow-minded, illiberal, do not meet the age. Even more so if they are given special treatment because they are Malay. This is not fair.
Since involved with efforts to restore the honor of the Malays I confess I shrink from Malay. I used to live in colonial times. The Malays and the Malay states colonized by the Portuguese, Dutch, British, Japanese and Thai. During the colonized people by the colonial Malay despised. I used to see the Malays being kicked in the head just because people do not respect the national anthem colonists.
Colonial proud with their race. There is no sense of shame among them concerning their race. They did not consider themselves racist. Instead they cultivate and nurture their national and how high their race.
Experience and my observations at the time of my race and I conquered Kedah, burn my national spirit. I intend at that time to restore my dignity.
Unlike the people who are ashamed of their race, I’m embarrassed if my nation were colonized and humiliated. I want my people respected by other nations. I want them to stand tall and be comparable to other nations in the world.
Occupied at the time I could not afford to have the power that I can do something to restore the honor of the nation. Though despised by colonial and other people who are more successful, I think the pursuit of self-knowledge for success, little-as much as I can prove I’m capable race. Of course when I was in power as Prime Minister then I concentrate on using whatever power and the opportunities available to me to free my people from being humiliated.
The trick is to create opportunities so people supplied me with knowledge and skills that they developed. Alhamdulillah, thanks to the support of the majority of my race, the effort paid off.
Today, Malays no longer be despised, certainly can not be kicked by anyone. Today, Malays can master, a professor at the university, renowned professionals, become scientists, businessmen and entrepreneurs become successful. They led the army with the title of general, cleverly developed countries even becoming an astronaut. And many more.
We do not deny that these successes result from government policies and plans to ensure the success of the Malays. What is wrong if the government is trying to reduce the gap among the rich and poor. Is this not the responsibility of the government. What the government should accept only the poor remain poor, the rich get richer.
Is it true that other people are not helped by their race. In fact, all the nations of the world to help their own people. They are willing to kill other races in their efforts to help their people. Colonial success is because of their national. They are proud of their nation. They claim they are the superior race. And they never will be ashamed of their national even when they oppress and humiliate other people.
In the business of helping fellow race transpires. Try to trade with other nations? Not usually trust the Countryman is difficult to obtain. Otherwise the Malays have inferiority complex, feeling of humbleness up feeling all they are doing is wrong and not like everyone else. If they are successful they will be criticized and even worsen successful because they claim real success is not success but as for fraud or assisted or protected, or cronies. They also denounced the Malays who are rich because they believe the allegations are cronies and fraudsters. They will be more outspoken than the non-Malays when accused of bad practice. They fully support the charges made to others.
They welcome the corruption charges against the Malays although there is no evidence that all successful due to corruption. They closed their eyes to corruption by others. They paint with paint Malay terhitam possible.
We do not deny the existence of bad behavior by the Malays. But others also do the same.
When other people actually have the opportunity and authority practices race-based discrimination. In countries where the Malays are the minority they oppressed and excluded. Mistreatment of minority Malays not labeled racist, even by the Malays. They assume this is only appropriate place.
Malayness supposed to defend them is that they are able to change and evaluate themselves, and they should be of the educated Malays. The funny thing is that this faction often have inferiority complex and embarrassed by their Malay culture.
Very unfortunate that those who enjoy the happiness of life because they are Malays, so ashamed of their race so willing to deny the favors they receive because of their race.
Problem with Malaysians(or the world, in-fact); we have been influenced too much by the western countries, so when these few people imply the western approach (liberalism and such), most people think it’s for the best. What we can’t see is that we’re moving backwards with time.
Remind yourself of the pagan times (zaman jahiliah) where everything was liberal, no one cared about ethics, no one cared about their leaders, no one cared about anything. And then everything was restructured and we had a great civilization. What people don’t remember is how the people used to respect their leaders. Not like what we do now. We don’t respect the leaders, we criticize the good things they’ve done, we just go against everything. Being very liberal just means we’re going back into the dark times.
So take everything into account, and think wisely.
Well, all of this chaos is bound to happen anyway.
It is written in the Quran, as we are now leading towards the generation before qiyamah.
“Those who forget the lessons of history are condemned to repeat it over and over again.”
— Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
