It is a slap in the face to all Chinese in Malaysia when Mohamad Sabu or Mat Sabu the deputy president of PAS said that Chinese will never be a dominant political force in Malaysia. He also added that it would be impossible for the Chinese to wield greater influence in Parliament and that MCA and DAP would only be eliminating each other. It is another stupid and ridiculous statement from PAS leaders.
Yes, the numbers of Chinese majority seats are not as much as Malay majority seats but there are more than 60% of seats with Malay majority throughout Malaysia where Chinese votes will decide who will be the winner. With this, how can he say that Chinese will never be a dominant political force in Malaysia? The Chinese in Malaysia has always been and will continue be the dominant political force in Malaysia.
Besides that, Chinese majority seats and greater influence of Chinese in Parliament has no correlation. IT IS THE DUTY OF THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE TO FIGHT FOR THE CAUSE OF THE PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF RACE. Period.
Has he forgotten that it was the Chinese votes that help Pakatan Rakyat to form the government in Perak? Without the votes from the Chinese for the DAP, will his comrade, Datuk Nizar get to become the Menteri Besar of Perak? In Selangor, without the Chinese support for DAP and also to PR candidates in Malay majority states, will PR gets to form the government? Neither side can form a government without the support from the Chinese.
So, Mat Sabu, think twice before you make such a racist statement. Malaysia has no place for racist politicians.
