Challenge to all the other 17 UMNO Ministers and other BN Ministers to stand up and be counted to declare whether they are Malaysians first and Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans or Ibans second or the reverse 挑战所有其他17名巫统部长及其他国阵部长挺身表明,他们以马来西亚人优先,种族居次自居,还

Let me challenge all the other 17 UMNO Ministers and other BN Ministers to stand up and be counted to declare whether they are Malaysians first and Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans or Ibans second or the reverse.
In fact, I want to ask the Minister responsible for the 1Malaysia Government Transformation Programme Roadmap, Senator Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon whether it is tenable for him to continue as Cabinet Minister when the very rationale of his portfolio – 1Malaysia GTP – had collapsed and destroyed by none other than the Deputy Prime Minister?副首相丹斯里慕尤丁回应我向他提出4道问题的挑战,以碓定他是否真正支持首相拿督斯里纳吉的一个大马概念时宣佈他是“马来人优先,大马 人居次”。他说:“我是以马来人优先!但身为马来人,不代表我不是一名马来西亚人。这不是一个种族问题。”
 




In response to my challenge on the four acid tests of whether he really supports Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s 1Malaysia concept, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin declared he is “Malay first” and then only a Malaysian.
He said: “I am Malay first! But being Malay does not mean you are not Malaysian. It is not a race issue.”
Again accusing me of trying to drive a wedge between him and Najib, he said:
“The question of 1 Malaysia should not be brought up. When a leader talks about the interest of his own race, it does not mean he doesn’t support 1 Malaysia. 1 Malaysia is based on the Constitution.
"How can I say I'm Malaysian first and Malay second? All the Malays will shun me and say that it is not proper.
“There is nothing wrong in leaders fighting for their own race. Don’t tell me Kit Siang does not fight for the Chinese?”
He even challenged me to declare that I am Malaysian first and Chinese second, until he was told by reporters that I had already made such a declaration - in Parliament during the debate on the Royal Address on 18th March.
I feel very sorry for the Prime Minister that his signature concept of 1Malaysia as the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia has been torn into smithereens by his deputy just on the eve of his first anniversary as Prime Minister on Saturday on 3rd April.
In fact, thanks to Muhyiddin, Najib’s 1Malaysia concept has been turned nationwide into an April Fool’s joke, as today is April 1.
I never said that a person who regards himself as a Malay first and Malaysian second is not a Malaysian – but clearly he does not qualify to become a “1Malaysian”.
Who is a “1Malaysian”?
This is clearly spelt out in the 1Malaysia Government Transformation Programme Roadmap launched by the Prime Minister at the end of January, which declared that the goal of 1Malaysia is “to make Malaysia ….a greater nation: a nation where, it is hoped, every Malaysian perceives himself or herself as Malaysian first, and by race, religion, geographical region or socio-economic background second and where the principles of 1Malaysia are woven into the economic, political and social fabric of society”.
I had said in my speech in Parliament on March 18 that the the biggest enemy of 1Malaysia is not from outside Barisan Nasional but from inside Umno and Muhyiddin has proved me right.
I had wondered how many Cabinet Ministers and Barisan Nasional leaders have the 1Malaysia DNA as to be able to pass the four simple 1Malaysia tests I had formulated.
During my speech in Parliament on March 18, when I put forward the four 1Malaysia acid tests, UMNO MPs including the UMNO Youth leader Khairy Jamaluddin ran for cover and dared not give a straightforward answer.
Let me challenge all the other 17 UMNO Ministers and other BN Ministers to stand up and be counted to declare whether they are Malaysians first and Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans or Ibans second or the reverse.
In fact, I want to ask the Minister responsible for the 1Malaysia Government Transformation Programme Roadmap, Senator Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon whether it is tenable for him to continue as Cabinet Minister when the very rationale of his portfolio – 1Malaysia GTP – had collapsed and destroyed by none other than the Deputy Prime Minister?
副首相丹斯里慕尤丁回应我向他提出4道问题的挑战,以碓定他是否真正支持首相拿督斯里纳吉的一个大马概念时宣佈他是“马来人优先,大马人居次”。
他说:“我是以马来人优先!但身为马来人,不代表我不是一名马来西亚人。这不是一个种族问题。”
他再次指我离间他与首相之的关係时说:
“一个大马的问题不应被提起。当一名领袖谈到本身族群利益时,不等于他不支持一个大马。一个大马是源自宪法。

我 岂能说我以大马人优先,马来人居次?所有马来人将会不喜欢我,並认为我这麽说不适当。
领袖为本身族群斗争並没有错,别告诉我,林吉祥不为华人斗争?”
他甚至挑战我表明自己以“大马人优先,华人居次”,不过记者告诉他,我早已如此宣佈,即于3月18日在国会辩论国家元首御词时宣佈。
我对首相的一个大马概念处境感到很悲哀,因为在他即将于4月3日出任我国第6任首相满1周年之际,却被其副手所粉碎。
其实,纳吉的一个大马概念在4月1日愚人节的今天,成为举国的笑话,要归功于慕尤丁。
我不曾说过一个以马来人优先,大马人居次的人不是大马人,但他显然不配成为“一个大马人”。
谁是“一个大马人”?
一个大马政府转型计划路线图就明显的说明,一个大马的目标是“希望每个大马人先视本身为大马人民,以种族、宗教、地域或社会经济背景居次”。
我于3月18日在国会发言时说,一个大马的最大敌人,不来自国阵外面,而是来自来巫统内部,慕尤丁証明我说得没错。
我曾表示怀疑,有几名内阁部长及国阵领袖具有一个大马的DNA,而能通过我拟出的4道有关一个大马的问题。
我于3月18日在国会发言时,提出这4道问题,巫统的国会议员,包括巫青团长凯里都加以回避,不给予直接了当的答覆。
我现在要挑战所有其他17名巫统部长及其他国阵部长挺身表明,他们以马来西亚人优先,马来人、华人、印度人、卡达山人或伊班人居次自居,还是反之。
其实,我也要问题负责一个大马政府转型计划路线图的部长丹斯里许子根上议员,在他负责的这个部门,即一个大马政府转型计划路线图的所有理由都已经崩 溃,而摧毁它的竟是副首相之後,他还有甚麽理由继续担任部长?
