malaysiakini and the FAILURE of KETUANAN MELAYU

No nation in the world has succeeded in a policy such as "Ketuanan Melayu" and therefore it is not surprising that Malaysia too has failed.
According to this malaysiakini article Zaid: Ketuanan Melayu has failed, such a policy
"It has resulted in waste of crucial resources, energy and time and has distracted from the real issues confronting the country,"
Strong words indeed from a prominent lawyer who a few months ago was the Law Minister in charge of judicial reforms.

But even as the UMNO party elections draws close, we can still hear strident voices that Umno must dictate government policy. Those who want a dictatorship for Malaysia now know where the truth lies.

UMNO has been the architect of "ketuanan melayu" and it has been the controlling party for the past 50 odd years. If this is still the philosophy of the party, voters should consider very seriously if they want to support such a party.

I salute Zaid for only if all Malaysians realise the dangers facing the nation, we cannot progress further. Instead we will definitely slide backwards.
