I feel it’s highly irresponsible to write a story like this, and worst still, to publish it without any logical reasoning or evidence.
Umno Youth Education Bureau chairman Ahmad Ikmal Ismail was let off too easily for making this very racist and political statement. Worst still, he wasn’t grilled or asked how did he arrive at this conclusion.
Anyone reading it would feel inflamed by such racist overtones. Wither Rakyat Malaysia?
The STAR achieves both ends – strengthening ‘Ketuanan Melayu’ and at the same time, inciting Chinese supremacy, that perhaps, they need parties like the MCA to defend their rights.
If you don’t believe me, read this, and tell me what you think.
(PETALING JAYA) Increasing the quota for non-bumiputras for Public Service Department (PSD) scholarships without increasing the actual number of scholarships has drastically affected the bumiputras, the Umno Youth Education Bureau said.
Its chairman Ahmad Ikmal Ismail said while the bureau agreed with the Government to give more scholarships to non-bumiputras, it did not agree with the way it was done.
“The quota for non-bumiputras has increased from 10% to 45% but the number of total scholarships has remained at 2,000.”
Ahmad Ikmal said this meant that scholarships were being taken from the bumiputras to be given to the non-bumiputras.
“We object to this move because it now means that 700 scholarships for bumiputra students are gone,” he said.
Ahmad Ikmal said a better way would be to use the New Economic Policy concept to increase the number of total scholarships. He said this was to ensure that the bumiputras were not affected and the non-bumiputras would get even more opportunities.
