You Tak Suka, You Keluar Dari Malaysia

Although the constitution declares Malaysia to be a secular state, there is much confusion on this subject. Several Muslims have argued, especially after former Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad's declaration that Malaysia is an Islamic state, that Malaysia is in actual fact an Islamic state. One Member of Parliament (MP), Badruddin bin Amiruldin, has stated in the Dewan Rakyat house of Parliament that "Malaysia ini negara Islam" ("Malaysia is an Islamic state") and that "you tidak suka, you keluar dari Malaysia!" ("You don't like it, you get out of Malaysia!") Badruddin refused to take back his statement, and a motion to refer him to the House Committee of Privileges was rejected by a voice vote. [4] However, the first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, contradicted this stance in the 1980s, saying, "All talk on Islamic States is just an empty dream. No man in his right sense would accept a nation which bases its political administration on religion, and in a country like Malaysia with its multi-racial and multi-religious people, there is no room for an Islamic State.

Malaysia has achievied nationhood for 50 years and yet our members of parliament that we choose through our votes are one kind of a shit. Members of parliement should represent the people in their contituencies and voice the people's need and opinion in the parliament but Malaysia is different. Those who call themself majority in the parliament do no shit for their contituencies but talk cock most of the time in the parliament. Furthermore, most of them are not open minded, rationale and calm to listen to criticisms, comments or opinions. The worst, those MPs who come from party that so call representing particular races(non Malays) in Malaysia and uphold their rights will just shut up eventhough some hurtly remarks was made by some irresponssible MPs.

If this goes on, the vision of achieving developed nation status in 2020 will be a dream. Hope something can be done by our government.

People out there! Make sure you vote people who do their jobs.

As fellow Malaysian, I feel sad for my country. *sigh*
