Kit Siang: Why Malay unity and not Malaysian unity - The Star

PETALING JAYA: Jul 23, 2008

The three dialogues between Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and PAS decision makers raise the question why the Prime Minister was focusing on Malay unity rather than on Malaysian unity, DAP national advisor Lim Kit Siang wrote in his blog.

“Has he forgotten another of his pledges, to be the Prime Minister of all Malaysians and not just of any race?” asked Lim.

He was commenting on the three discussions that Abdullah held with PAS leaders, which began right after the general election in March.

Among the PAS leaders Abdullah met were deputy president Nasharuddin Mat Isa, Terengganu commissioner Datuk Mustapha Ali and Shah Alam MP Khalid Abd Samad.

Lim alleged Malaysian nation building had gone backwards and that the Vision 2020 objective of a “Bangsa Malaysia” was increasingly frowned upon as a misplaced target.
