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.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
