“I love Malays and I love Malaysia,” says Gerakan central committee member Dr Asharuddin Ahmad. “But this country cannot survive without non-Malays. We are all Malaysians. The future of Malaysia lies with multiracial parties”.
Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) national chairperson Dr Nasir Hashim says “We made a mistake, even after Merdeka, when we were emerging as a nation. We should have talked about helping the poor among all races and not just zero in on one race”.

“Name me one Malay who is a pure Malay. There is virtually none — all Malays are mixed-blood to some degree.”
