Remember the MP for Pasir Salak who on July 1 in Parliament referred to the non-Malays in Malaysia as “pendatang,” as in all Non-Malays in this country are “pendatang asing”. Well this moron did it again yesterday ranting and raving over the JPA scholarship ratio. He even threatened not to support UMNO and BN over this issue. Well, good riddance to bad rubbish. I suggest he start a Malaysian chapter of the Ku Klux Klan where he can be the Life-Long President.
Sheesh!! doesn’t he realise that its people like him that made BN lose so badly in the last GE. How Pak Lah can allow him to run as a BN candidate in the elections is a WONDER!!
Shouts of racism again marred proceedings in the House today as parliamentarians crossed swords over the issue of government scholarships.
It began when Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Abdul Aziz said non-bumiputeras are entitled to JPA (Public Service Department) scholarships.
This prompted Fong Po Kuan (DAP-Bukit Mertajam) to ask about the racial quotas under the scholarships.
Sparks began to fly when Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (Umno-Pasir Salak) stood up and shouted: “The constitution is clear on bumiputera rights and we can’t compromise that. No more compromises!”
He then questioned the government’s new policy on the JPA scholarships, labelling it a “populist decision”.
A number of opposition MPs stood up to protest, among them Fong, S Kulasegaran (DAP-Ipoh Barat) and Chong Eng (DAP-Bukit Mertajam).
Tajuddin: This is Malay rights. I have met several cabinet ministers and they agreed me with me that scholarships should only be reserved for Malays. There should be no compromises!
