The Malay or The Najib Malay?

Let the Late Malaysian Poet Laureate Usman Awang remind the present generation who they should be.

They can longer be a people who have to depend a nanny state which is being run into the ground by a kleptocracy under Prime Minister Najib Razak. They cannot be bought by BR1M money and other handouts. They need to demonstrate that they are a proud, self-reliant, competitive and hard working people.–Din Merican

  2. Najib’s comment on Robert Kuok truly reflects what his real mentality is. He actually said that everything Kuok was and did, he would be not be successfull without the govt favour he got. He is COMPLETELY WRONG on this. Kuok was already a successful sugar trader by the time he got his deals with the govt. Look at what he has done and its clear, Kuok would be wildly successful regardless.

    BUT that is only the tip of what is truly wrong with Najib’s thinking. If you confront him on these arguments – he will deny he said it, he will excuse he meant something else. THAT is truly what is Najib. Deep down, he is dysfunctional in accepting there is a lot that if fake about him. In that sense, what is described here is truly Najib and his Malays. Who he really is if you take over his privilleged birth, good fortune, and his corrupt and abusive ways – something he clearly have denied ALL his life that is all he is.

  3. Thanks, Din. There aren’t many people-oriented intellectuals like him today, whether in this country or other Asian states stupefied with the neo-liberal opiate. I’d always felt, from the middle 1970s onwards, that there hadn’t been enough attention paid to his works. Today it’s Samad Said that seems forgotten by the younger generation (I used to travel by the LRT when in KL and often noticed him, wondering if the young folks recognised the bushy white haired old man sitting quietly among them).

    • Icrenoir, I still get to read Usman Awang’s work in the early 90s introduced to me by my Malay tutor.
      Perhaps, it is the chance of reading his work that I have the audacity to see a different Melayu that does not layu all these time.
