The Malays are angry.
The Malays are angry with the opposition who they insists have lost the plot about Ketuanan Melayu and the need to safeguard the "special position" of the Malays in their own Tanah Melayu as agreed upon when the non-Malays were granted citizenship upon Merdeka.
The Malays are angry with the government that have grown corrupt and arrogant on the proceeds of the use and abuse of the trust the Malays have placed upon them to champion the cause of their own people.
The Malays are angry with the Christians, the Chinese, the Indians, the western culture and everything else that have threatened the fundamentals of Islam by exposing the Malays to the decadence and loss of morality and ethics that sex, drink and the non Muslim culture brings with them.
The Malays are angry with Najib and Rosmah, Taib Mahmud, Anwar IIbrahim, Mahathir, Daim, Lim Kit Siang, Razak Baginda, Azmin Ali, Civil Servants, PAS, Umno, PKR, DAP, the purchase of the two submarines, the loss of the Jet Engines, Altantuya.....hell you can find a Malay to get angry at virtually anything that is going on in Malaysia!
The Malay leaders in government are angry, the Malay leaders in opposition are angry....even the cawangan members of the various Malay political parties are angry with the state of the economy, the arrogance and corruption of their leaders and of course, about the lack of trickle down from the top to them of the wealth and riches that they see their leaders are rolling in!
The mat rempits are angry.
The minah current are angry.
The Felda settlers are angry.
These anger have been the result of angst and frustration at the plight of the Malays as the Malays see themselves increasingly isolated and marginalized economically, financially and physically in a country they consider their own.
These anger are real but they have also been manufactured, advanced and manipulated by Malay leaders to serve their own political and personal agendas.
And more worrying, the advent of the social media and an increasingly knowledgeable Malay mass have made the anger of the Malays more focused, more intense and more relevant to the future of this nation and its people - be it the Malays or the non Malays. And invariable where the Malays go with this anger, so will Islam follow.
These anger amongst the Malays can no longer be kept hidden and under wraps indefinitely because most of the anger, after a long period of gestation have started simmer, boil over and have started to erupt. Whether the anger comes from within or manipulated and promoted by politicians and self interest groups the physical manifestations of it all can be seen by the overt aggression you see on display by the Malays in issues that involve religion and race.
And the most recent of these incidents happened yesterday with protest about the building of luxury condominium in Keramat.
|Today Keramat..... Esok apa pulak?|
PETALING JAYA: All 674 units of controversial Datum Jelatek condominiums have been registered to bumiputra buyers, debunking allegations that the Malays could not afford to purchase the luxury units.
