Rafidah Aziz Calls On Malaysians Subscribe To KETUANAN MALAYSIA – Putting Our Beloved Nation, Malaysia First !

Only true unity can help the country bounce back from adversity now, says former minister of international trade and industry Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, as she calls on Malaysians to subscribe to what she terms ‘Ketuanan Malaysia’ in a Facebook post today.

The notion, she said, is simply about “putting our beloved nation, Malaysia, first”, which she deemed as important for Malaysians to embrace as she pointed to the “heavy task ahead” that the new Pakatan Harapan government has to undertake in governing the country, and how Malaysians must give time and space for the new government to do its job.

“The government of the rakyat’s choice, PH, is faced with many tasks which need to be attended to in parallel. The last thing our country needs is distraction from governing,” she said, referring to obstacles like differences of opinion from arm chair critics, and opposition from those with vested interests as well as those who resort to race and religion as an excuse.

Loyalty to the country, she stressed, is blind to skin colour and race, creed, religion, social status or heritage. So Malaysians, she said, must hope and aim for a truly Malaysian society, free from discriminary inclination premised upon skin colour and race, creed, religion, social status, or heritage.

“By discriminating, do we expect different levels of loyalty from our rakyat?

“No Malaysian citizen should be regarded as superior, more special or of a higher class than others, by virtue of race or religion. No Malaysian child should be deprived, and all must be given equal opportunity to improve their lives, have access to the best education, earn a better living, and get their basic needs, without discrimination. Every Malaysian citizen in need of help and living in poverty should be entitled to assistance, regardless of race or religion,” she added.

“All Malaysians have Malaysia as their country. They know only Malaysia, even though their ancestors, or even their parents may have been born elsewhere. I am one of them. We have no other country to ‘go back to’. Forging a united Malaysia will produce citizens who will put their country first, who will feel that deep sense of pride to be Malaysian,” said Rafidah.

Doing so will nurture a Malaysian culture that upholds mutual respect as we accept one another’s diversities, she said — a culture that adheres to good values and principles, puts a premium on honesty and integrity, takes pride in being successful through grit and determination, and seeks knowledge to be better humans.

“There is simply no place in Malaysia for ‘opaque’ semblances of unity, where some choose to speak to the ‘gallery’ i.e. dancing to several tunes as and when it suits them. Such hypocrisy is the bane of Malaysia and Malaysians,” she said.

To her, a truly Malaysian society is one where where parents understand their roles in bringing up their young into well-grounded and resilient Malaysians, and where religion is regarded as a guidance and not as political capital, a factor to divide, or an excuse to be busybodies in others’ lives.

“Religion is between the person and the God Almighty, no matter how one refers to Him, in whatever language. A God-fearing person is certainly better than one who uses religion for personal interest and motives,” she said.

She went on to urge Malaysians to discard the “distortions of the past, the temptations to be parochial and even xenophobic”.

“There must no longer be ‘they and us’ among Malaysians. We are connected not only by the links of humanity, but also by the fact of [our] citizenry as Malaysians.

“Let us subscribe to Ketuanan Malaysia, putting our beloved nation, Malaysia, first. A Malaysia that can be a model to the world for democracy, unity, inclusiveness, and a deep sense of patriotism and nationalism,” she added.

As Malaysians, we must hope and aim for a truly Malaysian Society free from discriminatory inclination premised upon skin colour and race, creed, religion,social status or heritage.

All Malaysians have Malaysia as their country. They know ONLY Malaysia, even though their ancestors, or even their parents may have been born elsewhere. I am one of them.

We have NO OTHER COUNTRY to ‘go back to’.

Forging a UNITED MALAYSIAN PEOPLE will produce citizens who will put their Country FIRST, who will feel that deep sense of PRIDE to be Malaysian (I will ALWAYS say I am a MALAYSIAN although of Malay heritage).

It will nurture a MALAYSIAN CULTURE that,

– Upholds mutual respect and accept our diversities.
– Adheres to good values and principles in life
– Puts a premium on HONESTY and Integrity, a high sense of responsibility and accountability
– Seeks knowledge to be better humans and takes pride in being successful through grit and determination and through honest efforts and endeavour.

A TRULY MALAYSIAN SOCIETY is one,

– wherein Parents truly understand their roles in the upbringing of their young thus forging them into a well grounded and resilient Malaysian Society

– where Religion is regarded as THE Guidance in one’s daily living NOT as Political capital, as a factor to divide, as an excuse to be busybodies to police other people’s lives. Religion is between the person and God Almighty, no matter how one refers to Him , or in whatever language. A God-fearing person is certainly better than one who uses religion for personal interest and motives.

There is simply NO PLACE in Malaysia for “opaque” semblances of Unity – where some choose to speak to the ‘Gallery’ ie dancing to several tunes as and when it suits them. Such HYPOCRISY is the bane of Malaysia and Malaysians.

UNITY means we are TOGETHER AT ALL TIMES – whether in Good times or in times of Adversity.

Only TRUE UNITY can make Malaysia bounce back from adversity.

The Government of the Rakyat’s choice, PH, is faced with many tasks which need to be attended to in parallel. The last thing our Country needs is distraction from GOVERNING such as obstacles due to differences in opinions by arm chair critics, by those with vested interests, by people who oppose PH and by those who resort to race and religion as an excuse, to oppose anything at all.

The new PH government, have a heavy task ahead of them. We must be responsible enough to give time and space for them to Govern and to do what it takes to fulfil the HOPES of the RAKYAT.

WE MUST put MALAYSIA’S INTERESTS above all else.

When Malaysia is back on the right track of growth and development and when the wrongs have been successfully righted, we as Malaysians, can justly hold our heads high and say ‘WE MALAYSIANS, BOLIH!’.

Our roles and responsibilities, as MALAYSIANS, are cut out for us. Let us discard the distortions of the past, the temptations to be parochial and even xenophobic. There must no longer be “they and us” amongst MALAYSIANS. We are connected not only by the links of humanity ,but also by the fact of CITIZENRY as MALAYSIANS.

Loyalty to the country is blind to skin colour and race, creed, religion,social status or heritage. By discriminating, do we expect different levels of loyalty from our RAKYAT ?

NO Malaysian citizen should be regarded as superior, more special , or of a higher class, than others by virtue of race or religion.

NO Malaysian child should be deprived ,and all must be given equal opportunity to improve their lives, have access to the best education, earn a better living, and get their basic needs, without discrimination.

Every Malaysian citizen in need of help and living in poverty ,should be entitled to assistance ,regardless of race or religion.

Fellow Malaysians,

Let us subscribe to KETUANAN MALAYSIA, putting our beloved Nation, Malaysia, first. A Malaysia that can be a Model to the World for DEMOCRACY, UNITY, INCLUSIVENESS and a deep sense of PATRIOTISM and NATIONALISM.
