Hadi must name non-Muslim ‘plunderers’ who’ve been conning Malays for over half century

PAS president Tan Sri Hadi Awang has again delivered a racist and most intemperate diatribe, calling on the Malays to unite as the race is being openly conned!

He said that the Malays were being toyed with and conned due to their own neglect and ignorance and are victims of the country’s politics which is being plagued by corruption, moral decay and divisions among themselves.

He slammed Malays who work with non-Muslims and non-Malays whom he claimed are the “biggest plunderer” by giving and receiving bribes.

This is not the first time that the PAS leader has turned his guns against non-Muslims and non-Malays but now he has gone too far.

Can Hadi name the non-Muslim and non-Malay “plunderers” who give and receive bribes, conning the Malays and Muslims?

I would have thought that if Hadi is serious in believing that the Malays and Muslims had been conned for over half a century, he would hold Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as bearing the largest responsibility as the latter had been a prime minister (PM) for more than 24 years!

Yet, Hadi supports Mahathir’s “Malay Proclamation” to save the Malay race! Is Mahathir’s “Malay Proclamation” part of the non-Malay and non-Muslim con job to deceive and plunder the Malays and Muslims in Malaysia?

Is Hadi alleging that the other PMs – going back to the first three PMs who were also UMNO presidents, namely Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Razak and Tun Hussein – as well as Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob had also “conned” the Malays?

Is Hadi referring to all the MCA and MIC leaders since the founding of the nation, and the Gerakan leaders as conmen and “plunderers”?

Can Hadi name the non-Malays and non-Muslims “plunderers” who had “conned” the Malays for over half a century to the extent that the Malays need to be saved?

Or does Hadi think that the social media of the day give him to right to make wild and unsubstantiated allegations and preposterous claims?

Lim Kit Siang

It is now some six months since he made the preposterous allegation that DAP was promoting Islamophobia but Hadi has not been able to give an iota of evidence to substantiate his preposterous allegation despite the fact that DAP had worked with PAS for over a decade to bring about a better Malaysia.

I am giving Hadi the benefit of the doubt by giving him 48 hours to name the non-Muslim and non-Malay “plunderers” who “give and receive bribes”, conning the Malays and Muslims of their rights for over half a century.

While working on his answer, can Hadi also explain why 10 of the 20 most corrupt nations in the world in the Transparency International 2022 Corruption Perception Index covering 180 countries are Muslim-majority countries if the majority of the corrupt in Malaysia are non-Muslims and non-Bumiputera? – May 10, 2023
