There Was No Need For Race Baiting At Malay Dignity Congress


There is always a better way to begin a conference. There is no necessity to engage in hate speech
There is no need to threaten the non-Malays of dire consequences
This is precisely what was done by academician Zainal Kling in his opening speech at the Malay Dignity Congress in Shah Alam today
This congress was organised by a group of Umno leaders and those who might have joined PPBM under the cover of four public universities
The universities were brought in to get students to attend the congress or to fill up the space
As the chief of the secretariat, Zainal could have given a respectable introduction to the congress
There was no necessity to engage in race baiting
There was no rhyme or reason to scold others, meaning non-Malays, for not respecting the social contract with Malays
Without a balanced notion of the social contract, Zainal lambasted those who did not respect the social contract with Malays, taking advantage of the generosity of Malays, and threatened the non-Malays that the social contract might be abrogated
I am not sure why Zainal, as an academician, would want to engage in this kind of unwarranted speech as though Malays are facing an imminent threat from non-Malays
Zainal must give details as to how non-Malays have acted contrary to the social contract, in what ways the Malay generosity is being challenged, and how non-Malays have questioned the Malay institutions and customs
In an ethnic and religion-sensitive society like Malaysia, we don’t need the likes of Zainal to bring up matters meant to raise his ethnic or Malay profile in the crowd
Racial extremism, if left unchecked, might be transformed into something that we might not be able to control
The congress on Malay dignity is not a forum to disparage or belittle the non-MalaysSuch a venture will depict the congress as being an insensitive and racial one
Malay dignity should be raised by looking into the historical and contemporary factors that have impeded economic development of the Malays over the decades
Race and religion are significant identity markers of Malays, but engagement in extremism might be a hindrance to Malays
It is wrong to think that the non-Malays are hindering Malay progress, far from it
The pernicious race to the bottom with race and religion must be stopped
It would be quite ahistorical to assume everything is fine with Malay society
Some Malay leaders, to hide their own incompetence and irresponsibility, have sought to blame the ordinary Malays for being left behind
And what is more, they have put the blame on non-Malays for their incompetence and the non-development of the Malays
Malaysians must escape the dangerous entrapment of race and religion
These identification markers might be seductive and easily invoked to explain things. They can be populist in terms of attracting crowds but offer no long-term solution to society
I am not sure whether Zainal is aware of the pitfalls of ethnic nationalism as history is replete with examples of how the relentless drive towards ethnic nationalism or jingoism might end up in fascism
Fascism, despite its initial popularity in countries like Germany and Italy, lost to democracy in the end
Zainal, who once shockingly argued that Peninsular Malaysia was never colonised by the British, had to swallow his own words upon realising that Malaya obtained its independence in 1957
Maybe, on a lighter note, there could be a feeling on the part of Zainal that he wants to be popular and the only way to do this is get himself involved in the Malay congress so that he can take an extreme line
But why, for your own selfishness, is there is a need to pit Malays against non-Malays
