While Sarawak BN leaders dare not say it, DAP Sarawak, on behalf of Sarawakians, tells Najib that he and his racist 916-Rally is NOT WELCOME in Sarawak

(15-9-2015)

Najib and UMNO’s open endorsement of the 916 Rally for “Malay Dignity” mars the significance of Malaysia Day.

Since the formation of Malaysia in 1963, UMNO has been the dominant party in the ruling coalition dictating the nation’s key policies and all the past Prime Ministers and Deputy Prime Ministers were and still are Malays.

As it is now, all key ministerial portfolios are held by Malay ministers, government departments and large Government-linked companies are controlled by Malays and public universities headed by Malays.

As such, it is incomprehensible that Najib and UMNO still see the need to mobilise and support a rally to allegedly defend Malays’ dignity.

Is Malays’ dignity truly under threat in Malaysia or it is merely Najib’s position as the Prime Minister under threat? Is the 916 rally truly a rally to defend “Malay Dignity” or just merely a rally to divert the national and international attention on Najib’s RM2.6 billion scandal?

Why can’t Najib and UMNO leave 916, Malaysia Day, alone and untainted?

916 should be a day for all Malaysians, regardless of race, language and religion, to come together as one nation to celebrate the formation of Malaysia, not a day for ONE single race.

This UMNO-endorsed 916 rally has turned this auspicious day into a Black Day in the history of Malaysia where the UMNO/BN government is making Malaysia a more divided nation.

Whatever that is in the mind of Najib, the endorsement of such a rally based on race is surely not welcome in Sarawak and he who supports such a racist rally is also not welcome in Sarawak.

Therefore, since Najib is visiting Sarawak today, I, on behalf of Sarawakian, am openly telling Najib that he and his racist political manoeuvres are not welcome in Sarawak.
