Do You Agree With This Senator's Arguments For Perpetuation Of The NEP?

A senator today disagreed with a tabloid newspaper editorial which proposed that the existing social contract between the various races in the country be restructured.

Senator Datuk Syed Ali Al Habshee said the tabloid proposal that the political formula be restructured by using a more universal spirit in line with global trends indirectly questioned the special privileges of the Malays as agreed in the social contract.

"Come to think of it, all the races are dissatisfied. This we admit but don't question Malay rights this way. Why must we question something which has led to racial harmony and unity," Syed Ali told Bernama here today .

The tabloid had raised the issue when commenting about the illegal rally by the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) on Nov 25 and its demands.

"There are things which can be changed to suit the times but this is not the case for Malaysia as the social contract had been agreed and used for a long time," Syed Ali added.

***** Syed Ali obviously is adamant in his view that the so-called 'social contract' is akin to an ironclad holy agreement blessed by the Gods. As one who has benefited hugely and very profitably by the unfettered implementation of the NEP, he definitely would not like to see it being diluted or 'restructured', at least not till the next millennium or until the Bumis are ready to compete on a 'level playing field', whichever comes later. At least Pak Lah was hinting at a 2057 expiry date for the end of this abomination called the Never Ending Policy. This bugger seems much worse.

Strange isn't it, that one whose name sounds more Arabic than Malay and who looks more Pakistani than Malay should be so fanatically pro-Malay! A case of knowing which side his bread is buttered? Oh well, to each his own.

When this senator said,"Don't question Malay Rights!" he also meant all malays who are not AMNO elites lar. Maklumlar if you're not AMNO then NEP does not apply you also.

What does our 'senators' do?
Actually it's time to evaluate why we need 'Senators'in the first place as these Sen-Tak-Betul doesn't do anything for the rakyat. Makan gaji buta. Abolish senators please.

We can shout till the cows come home, the status quo will remain as long as UMNO doesn't want to change.

I am staying on to fight, but packing my kids off to study & work oversea under their own steam.

There's no free lunch in the world.

The world is your oyster...
Bon appetit!

Qwerty,

Yes, you are not alone in what you are doing.
Thta's why the brain drain is a real issue (however, the Government is denying this of course).
If our children go overseas they compete on a even playing field.
"They" are never going to abolish the NEP for the simple reason that they know they have got a good thing going here. Why stop it? They know they can't compete fairly so they have to keep it the NEP forever!
We can't question the Malay Rights because they are the only ones who have rights!

As discussed many times before, the NEP (and all its reincarnations) should be need based and not race-centric.

Hence, why not eliminate the bumi discount for house purchases of RM250,000 and more as the people who can afford such houses can definitely afford it. They certainly have no "need".

Secondly, let's have meritocracy in admission to science and technical based university courses instead of racial quotas. Our country needs skilled professionals to compete on the global front.

Racial quotas can continue to exist for courses like Islamic studies, arts, languages, etc.

We should put the needs of the country first - but then again, I may be preaching to the congregation and this senator and many of his peers seem to conveniently miss the point.

Trashed,

What you say is true. Some of the Opposition Politicians have said the same thing but these "Don't question Malay Rights" proponents won't hear of it.
Simmple, if they do this then they can't send their sons & daughters to the UK, US & Australia for studies FOC (although they sure can afford it!), i.e. using the hard earned Tax Payers (which includes the Non-Malays) money!
