LKY Has Hidden Motives In Accusing M'sia Of Marginalising Chinese Says Zainuddin Maidin.

Information Minister Datuk Zainuddin Maidin said today Singapore Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew had ulterior motives in accusing Malaysia of marginalising the Chinese community when he himself had killed the Chinese culture in his own country.

"I think he wanted to scare the Chinese, to make them feel that the wealth that they have amassed can never be safe in the region," he said to newsmen here after visiting Xinhua news agency. He arrived here for a three-day working visit yesterday.

Zainuddin said Malaysia had never marginalised its Chinese community even when there was an opportunity to do so such as during the aftermath of the May 13 incident in 1969. "The Prime Minister then, Tunku Abdul Rahman, rejected such a notion. We have also never confiscated any assets of the Chinese community," he said.

"Instead, we broadened participation in the government by expanding the Alliance to set up the Barisan Nasional."

Today Malaysia has more Chinese schools than Singapore and the biggest circulation newspaper in the country is a Chinese language newspaper.

"Lee Kuan Yew on the other hand had systematically killed the Chinese culture by disallowing many Chinese practices. He also closed down Nanyang University and Ngee Ann college," he said.

Zainuddin said Lee must be congratulated for changing the Chinese identity in the island state such that it had become unrecognisable.

He called on Chinese newspapers in Malaysia not to be taken in by Lee's statement to the extent of playing up Chinese chauvinism and endangering Malaysia's racial harmony.

One get tired of reading some of the lies and cock statements made, especially, by this idiotic minister.

The UMNO government has often taken away non malay business by administrative means. If they do not confiscate such business outright then they cancel the licence to carry on such business.
Remember the bus transport businesses in K.L. and other towns and districts? The non malay licences were cancelled and new licences were granted to the malays. Look at our present public transport system as a result of that policy!

After the cancellation the business is then awarded and often "granted" to malays. That is one reason why the UMNO government prefers to licence all businesses because it provides UMNO with a device to take over any such business.

Very true what brother prl is saying. There are also other examples but no point bringing up because it is too late to help the poor deprived people.

So did Mamak KJ and Cicit Mustafa Kemal Ataturk when they said that Malays are \'marginalised\' in Penang. And I don\'t remember the State Government confiscating any assets of the Malay community in Penag (as if they could...). Mamak Mydin, if you have nothing original to say, either shut up or go back to Kerala on a leaky boat.

the point was not at Tunku's time or whether he had confiscated chinese's property. LKY was referring to the Malaysia at present day, how much had been taken away from the chinese commuity.
