Malays decide the fate of this nation

Although Malaysian Chinese and Malaysian Indians are also part of the citizenry of the country, they are side stepped from the decision making processes that determine the fate of this nation, and are often deemed as second and third class citizens respectively.

Being minority races, they are basically voiceless and hardly represented in affairs of the nation, and what is to be witnessed is that the Malay heartland dictates terms and conditions to which the Chinese and Indians are compliant.

This should not come as a surprise as ever since the New Economic Policy of Tun Abdul Razak was implemented in 1970, the Chinese and Indians knew that they had to carve their own path in life independent of the government.

Therefore, what this translates into is that if Malaysia is deemed as a rogue nation tottering on the brink of being a failed state, the onus of responsibility for this situation evolving should be borne entirely by the Malays.

In the same vein, if Malaysia becomes a success story, a first world nation or advanced and developed country the Malays should receive the accolades and most Chinese and Indians will have nothing much to do with it.

The lack of inclusivity of Chinese and Indians in governing and ruling the nation, the factionalized Malay community, divided by different political groups and the disunity evident is set to engender more feelings of disquiet among Malaysians.
