Adakah perjuangan Nizar sama dengan perjuangan Melayu?

Di kemukakan petikan teks penuh isu ini (maaf dalam bahasa Inggeris):]

Nizar says Ketuanan Melayu is unIslamic

(Ed, Bukan kah ketuanan Melayu itu zahirnya ketuanan agama Allah dan hamba-hamba Allah di Tanah Melayu yang telah bersarang selama 500 tahun?)

The recent spate of racial politicking allegedly instigated by non-Malay politicians in the Opposition, seems to have triggered an internal war among the Malay community, creating a widening rift between two factions — the pro-Pakatan Rakyat (PR) Malays and the pro-Barisan Nasional (BN) Malays.

The chasm was further proven today when, in a press conference at the Perak DAP headquarters this afternoon, ousted Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin (picture) came to the defence of his non-Malay comrades in the PR and condemned the concept of “Malay Supremacy”, adding that it was an “un-Islamic” ideology.

He also urged his fellow Malays to open their eyes and see the BN's or Umno's ploy in using the concept to create a wave of protest against the PR alliance.

“As far as we in PAS are concerned, the entire concept is utter rubbish. There is no such thing as Malay supremacy but what it really is is Umno supremacy,” he said.

He said that PAS, even as an Islamist party, had never been an advocate of such a concept and this stand had been undertaken by the party's spiritual adviser Datuk Seri Nik Aziz Nik Mat many years ago.

Nizar added that “Malay Supremacy” was anti-Islam and that any Muslim who committed treachery against Islam would be punished in one way or another.

“They will not go unpunished,” he said.

The Bukit Gantang MP added that the Umno Malays were presently attempting to distort all statements and actions taken by the non-Malay politicians in the PR, in order to create a false impression that they were “anti-Malay”.

“They are doing this everywhere and trying to get the Malays to believe them.

“Look at the incident of the frog doormat — they claimed that it was an act of the Chinese stepping on the faces of the Malays,” he said.

In the incident, the Perak DAP had been criticised for stepping on the pictures of PR defectors Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi, Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu and Hee Yit Foong during its annual convention in Ipoh recently.

Nizar was speaking out for his non-Malay colleagues in the PR — Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming and Ipoh Barat MP M. Kulasegaran — both of whom had come under fire lately for allegedly making “racial” statements in Parliament.

In Kulasegaran's case, the DAP national vice-chairman had said that the New Economic Policy and the concept of “Malay Supremacy” were obstacles in the quest to achieve racial unity in the country.

Nga, on the other hand, became the recipient of severe criticism when he spoke against the BN government's generous allocation for the construction of mosques in the country.

He had said that between the years 2000 and 2008, the government had spent RM748.26mil on the construction of 611 mosques but had failed to build any churches or Chinese and Indian temples in the same period.
