The PAP Government should walk the talk on racial harmony and unity

This coming Reserved Presidential Election has open up a can of worms. Race issues is being hotly debated on what it means to be a Malay, what defines a Malay.

For me, I can consider myself lucky. After being born as a Malay (my IC indicates that I’m a Malay), and now turning to 36, I have been twice certified and approved (2006, 2011) by the Malay community committee set up by the Government that indeed, i am a Malay and is a member of the Malay community.

I am deeply saddened though, for my fellow brothers and sisters who has not been certified yet as a Malay (even though their IC indicates so), as the committee has not certified them to be as one.

Which brought me to ask the following question. Why do the minority candidates in every election, have to go and get themselves certified by the various minority community committees, before they can stand as a candidate?

And why, the Chinese candidates, do not have to go through the same process and get themselves to be certified first as a Chinese before they are allowed to stand?

And why is there this nonsensical policy at the first place?

Isn’t this a discriminatory practice towards the minorities? Aren’t we what we are based on the IC? Why the certification to be approve of the race that you are born into and belongs to?

Regardless of race, language or religion, this unhealthy practices has to be stop for once and for all.

The PAP Government is preaching about racial harmony and unity but they aren’t walking the talk when what they do is basically racist and discriminatory in nature!

What say you?

    The PAP government is notorious at paying lip service to hookwink the citizens. The GRC system was to ensure minority representation but turned out to be a crooked tactic to perpetuate PAP rule. Likewise, the reserved EP for Malays is used to stymie Dr TCB from being the next EP. The PAP is getting closer to zero credibility with each attempt to rig every type of national election.

    When your community keep trusting them and giving them your votes, of coz they’d continue to bully and treat you that way!

    Hundreds of thousands of PRCs (even hookers) can just come in here and become SG Chinese, yet Malays born in this island need to be certified to be SG Malays. The Cantonese say – “mo ngan thai (singlish = no eyes see)”. Wonder how your community can tahan being discriminated for so many centuries.

    It’s time you people show pap the exit door with your votes and tell them that you’re not stupid.

  • NotMyProblem:

    Now the race stated in the IC is not races anymore, but nationality or community. What is it stated for new citizen like Japanese, Pakistani, Burmese, Vietnamese, etc? If all these citizen stated as OTHERS, then this group would be more than the Indian population, maybe more than the Chinese Population.

    This race thing is created by PAP for its own agenda.

    PAP put Murali in Bukit Batok in the last by-election as guinea pig to prove Singaporeans are racist but failed and disappointed. Resulted in the need to change the constitution for the Elected President. Ended up with this messy situation.

  • opposition dude:

    PAP what, say one thing and do another. Who don’t know?

    Say will look after Singaporeans and yet allow in more and more non Singaporeans every year, who don’t know?

    The PAP will continue to use race when it suits them. And I wouldn’t be surprised if the malays were again used as pawns in future.

    Still don’t agree with the idea of reserved EP by race.
    Go against the idea of the best man for the job regardless of race.
