Based on current trend/modus operandi by UMNO to play/stir those sensitive issues such as Race, Religion, Royalty, i strongly believe in the even that UMNO/BN lost their power in this upcoming General Election, they would resort to extreme/radical tactics and most possibly, they would try to “re enact” the Bloody 13th May Tragedy and “State of Emergency/ Martial Laws would declared and the Parliament would be suspended, but the question is, are we going allowed that to happen again?
What really happen on 13th May 1963?
Here is an excerpt from Dr.Kua Kia Soong, May 13: Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots 1969 http://www.mphonline.com/books/nsearchdetails.aspx?&pcode=9789834136789
“Subky Latiff,a journalist at the time,wrote in 1977
“The May 13 Incident did not occur spontaneously.It was planned quickly and purposely.The identity of the plannners of the incident cannot be stated with accuracy.
But whatever it was happened,the May 13 Incident was a form of Coup d’ etat directed against Tunku Abdul Rahman.The Tunku’s power in fact ended from then onwards.Although he continued to be Prime Minister and President of UMNO,he was no more than just a figurehead”
This is the first credible account of the May 13, 1969 racial riots in Malaysia using documents recently declassified at the Public Records Office, London after the lapse of the 30-year secrecy rule. These documents provide the only available confidential observations and memoranda by British and other foreign embassy operatives based on their intelligence and contacts with local officials and politicians. They include dispatches by correspondents which were then banned in Malaysia. The local media were suspended at the time and local documents remain classified under the Official Secrets Act.
A social scientist, Kua Kia Soong provides a fresh political analysis of this “May 13 Incident”. In his view, the riots were by no means a spontaneous outburst of violence between Malays and Chinese but rather a planned coup d’etat by the ascendant state capitalist class against the Tunku-led aristocracy. He discusses the contradictions of the post-Independence Alliance racial formula and traces the rise of this new Malay capitalist class which has ruled Malaysia since 1969.
This is the question that we Malaysians regardless of Race/Religion should ask sincerely ask ourself
We want to have a CHANGE of Government. We want a NEW Goverment to take over from UMNO/BN who has been in Power since 1957 and along the way, somehow they had become complacent and today predicament is the manifestations of their “Complacent/Corrupts Habits” for the past many2 years
There is a saying, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”
Back to the issue, no doubt that UMNO/BN capitalising on the 3R issues to fish for votes from the Malay/Muslims voters for their own Political Survival but the question is, can we UNITED as Malaysians regardless of Race/Religion for one COMMON GOAL which is to demand for a BETTER DAWN and BETTER FUTURE for Malaysia?
To be fair, we need to read/listen to both side of arguement before we can form our own conclusion and not merely being influenced by one views/analysis. Neither do i agree or disagree with any of the arguements
