Misleading? By who?

Kuan Yew’s comments misleading, says Najib - New Straits Time, 22nd Sept 2006

  • Malaysia yesterday ticked off Singapore’s Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew for saying that Malaysian Chinese were being marginalised systemically.
  • Indonesia and Malaysia "want Singapore, to put it simply, to be like their Chinese — compliant", Lee said.
  • Najib said the government had no intention to sideline or marginalise non-Bumipute- ras.
  • The government, he added, had never adopted a policy which aimed at hindering the progress of the non-Bumiputeras as all it wanted was nothing but fairness and equal distribution of wealth for all races.

MM Lee, you are the man. The world is watching, and not everyone is blind and deaf. "Nothing but fairness and equal distribution of wealth for all races", I am so touched! Misleading? By who?

I want to get an explanation from Lee, says Abdullah - (The Star, 24th Sept 2006)

  • During a press conference in London on Friday, Abdullah said no community in Malaysia was being marginalised.
  • Stressing that this was a fact, he said the progress achieved by the country’s multi-racial community showed that no one had been sidelined.
  • In New York, Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said: “I’m at a loss as to what his (Lee's) intention was.”
  • In Tangkak, Johor, Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin called on Lee to apologise for making the “provocative remarks.”
  • In Taiping, the Backbenchers Club (BBC) called for a retraction and apology from Lee.

Something amiss? Are we digging hole again? Let's go deeper.
