POLITICAL STABILITY

9-Political-Stability2

Malaysia has all the ingredients for instability, says Dr Mahathir. This is a country that is multi-racial, multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-religious as well. Economic disparity is a big issue as well. He says Malaysians by right cannot even eat at the same table because Malays cannot eat pork but Chinese like pork. Indians cannot eat beef but Malays like beef. But somehow, we managed to eat together by being considerate. He talks about how this country actually started off on a wrong footing but how Tunku Abdul Rahman found a way for UMNO, MCA and MIC to share power in a coalition that now extends to 14 parties. Dr M says it is much better to share slices of a cake and enlarge each slice than to have the whole cake to yourself and see it shrink to nothing. He hopes one day the people of this country would see themselves as just being Malaysian. Not Malay Malaysian or Chinese Malaysian or Indian Malaysian. Just Malaysian.
