Umno's denial syndrome on stateless persons

COMMENT There are an extremely large number of Malaysians who were born here, have lived here and who will die here, but who have been thought fit not to be considered citizens of the country, in direct contravention of their natural rights. They are instead awarded the ‘Red IC’ status.

These people are the politically maimed people of Malaysia. They carry with them this disability wherever they go and for as long as they live in Malaysia. There could be several hundred thousands of such politically maimed people in the country.
