UMNO has been consistent in defending the rights of Malays from its inception in 1946. UMNO and Raja Melayu fought against the Malayan Union(without any support from the Chinese and Indians) which led to establishment of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu in 1948. Along the way MCA and MIC joined in. UMNO was at the forefront of formulation of the Constitution of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu which was Malay-centred, ie. Islam, the religion of the Malays became the ‘religion of the Federation’, Bahasa Melayu, the language of the Malays became ‘bahasa rasmi’, the Raja-Raja Melayu select the Agung among themselves to be the king of the country, giving ‘special position’ to the Malays etc etc. Until now, UMNO are upholding those provisions ‘without fear or favour’. In this sense, UMNO GOT DIGNITY.
PKR, despite being led generally by Malays are not defending the Malay rights as allowed for in the Constitution. Prior to PRU 2008, PKR even promised the Chinese voters to do away with DEB, one of the intruments of implementation of Article 153 of the Federal Constitution. No doubt, PKR got votes from the Chinese by being TRAITORS to their own Malay race….and TRAITORS to the Federal Constitution too. And latest, despite PAS refusal to work with both DAP and Amanah, PKR is still ‘nagging’ PAS to work within Pakatan2.0….mainly to ensure that the Selangor Government does not fall to the BN. For the sake of retaining some power, PKR is willing to do ‘hidung tak mancung, pipi tersorong-sorong’. In this sense, PKR has NO DIGNITY.
DAP is worst of all. They knew from day one that PAS’s aspirations included implementation of HUDUD LAWS. For the sake of Malay votes, DAP was willing to pretend that PAS had shelved those HUDUD LAWS. Even after the parties ‘divorced each other’, DAP is still willing to sleep on the same bed as PAS…in Selangor…for the most ridiculous of excuses. On top of that, DAP is not bold enough to insist PAS to make a choice….DAP/Amanah or PAS. Apparently, Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng are just like TIN KOSONG. TIN KOSONG makes loudest of noises, compares to tins full of oil or biscuits. Obviously, all the cocky and arrogant talks by the Lim the Father and Lim the Son are just to hide their hollow core. DAP indirectly still need to hang on to PAS…hence their unwillingness to give ‘kata dua’ to PKR. In this sense, DAP also has NO DIGNITY.
