Let 1Malaysia concept thrive, says Chua

SUNGAI BULOH: The Prime Minister’s 1Malaysia concept must be given a chance to flourish to ensure continuous social harmony in the country, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

He urged Malaysians to accept differing values among the communities to maintain fairness.

Dr Chua said the Prime Minister had introduced the 1Malaysia concept because it reflected the fact that the rights of all communities, such as access to education and freedom of religion, were protected by the Federal Constitution.

He said it was because of religious and cultural intolerance that terrorism flourished in some parts of the world.

“Learn to accept the concepts of 1Malaysia to ensure fairness and harmony for everyone,” he said, at the 29th anniversary gathering of the Choon San Temple here last night. Later, he gave RM10,000 to the temple.

Dr Chua said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s announcement that JPA scholarship was for all students who scored 9A+ in the SPM was a clear example of 1Malaysia at work.

He also warned Malaysians to be wary of those who use religion merely to gain political mileage and support.

“For example, PAS has admitted that it wants to impose Syariah laws if it forms the Government. Can you live in a multi-cultural country with Syariah laws?” he said.

Come one, Dr Chua. You seems like a rational person. Please sell this "1Malaysia" concept to the DPM Muhyiddin first. He is the one who said he is Malay 1st, Malaysian 2nd. What gives ? Even the DPM can't agree with the PM ? What a joke. Please don't ask the Rakyat to understand "1Malaysia" when the DPM can't understand it.

Some more you looks like chicken out now, don't dare to publish our feedbacks.

If so, might as well you disable the comment function.

PAS at least does not look at race, but voting for MCA is worst, because a vote for MCA is a vote for UMNO who are like the mad dog barking race and religion at everybody.

Still wonder why you lose big in March 2008 ?

If MCA cannot control the mad dog,
the Rakyat will kick it back to where it belongs.

1 Malaysia, Rakyat didahulukan.

1. 1 Malaysia harus memastikan KEADILAN DAN KESAKSAMAAN PELAJARAN DAN PENDIDIKAN UNTUK SEMUA WARGANEGARA MALAYSIA DAN KEUTAMAAN DIBERIKAN KEPADA MEREKA YANG BERPENDAPATAN KURANG DARI RM3 RIBU SEBULAN KE IPTA.

2. POTONGAN 7% HANYA KEPADA GOLONGAN YANG BERPENDAPATAN RENDAH YAKNI KELAS DAN BUKANNYA RAS DAN ETNIK.

Very good start, Dr Chua!!

why i said "start", bcoz i see nothing was moved in MC previously. Previously, all MCA leaders "love" their positions as minister, whos boss is PM, therefore dare not to speak loud. but you are different!

Good Job!
