Umno stalwart and Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said he does not know where the perceived threats to Malays are coming from.
This is a major rationale for the Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu rally today in Kuala Lumpur.
"You have got the government that is headed by a Malay, state governments headed by Malays with the exception of one in Penang. The civil service is mostly made up of Malays.
"The army are mostly Malays and we also have Malay rulers. I don't know where the threats are coming from."
He hoped that the rally would be peaceful where people could gather without the need to create fear to others.
"Let the gathering bring benefit to the masses and let it pass the message of unity which I think is much more important as we just celebrate 58 years of independence. That would be meaningful," he said.
The rally which is held to counter the Bersih 4 rally is dubbed the red-shirt rally and is at Padang Merbok.
