This is one of the saddest news I came to know just now when I was doing my daily read-up on Malaysiakini.
“The elusive Ahmad Ismail, the man at the centre of a ‘racial slur’ controversy, said today he would not apologise even after the deputy prime minister has already done so on his behalf.
The Bukit Bendera Umno division chief added that he did not feel sorry and would not recant his alleged racist remarks against Chinese Malaysians during the recent by-election campaign in Permatang Pauh.
“I am not apologetic because I didn’t do anything wrong,” the Umno division leader from Penang told Malaysiakini via telephone today. “
Ahmad Ismail oh Ahmad Ismail…
What are you trying to do here? Our dearest DPM just apologized on behalf of you and it was printed all over the mainstream media yesterday, remember? Are you trying to put our DPM into shame with your unapologetic statement?
With the 916 rumours swirling around the corner, and the latest announcement by Mr Ahmad Ismail, I am sure the ruling government will be seeing its sinking ship to drown even faster. They certainly has forgotten what the rakyat has done in the last GE. They certainly has forgotten.
I just can’t understand why he must say that the Chinese are immigrants squatting in the country while we are born in Malaysia and given an Identification Card (MyKad) as well. If he calls us “Pendatangs” and not entitled for equal rights in this country, why doesn’t he ask Lee Chong Wei to return the Olympic Silver Medal to China since his ancestors are from there? Why should Lee Chong Wei fight for a country where his rights are not being assured? Why should Lee Chong Wei fight to live up the dream of Malaysia in securing a silver medal when he is acknowledged as a “Pendatang”?
Oh perhaps, Nicol David is not a Malay too, so is she a “pendatang” too? If yes, I am afraid that her past glories for Malaysia has been put into vain as she is not entitled to the equal rights in Malaysia.
Ahmad Ismail oh Ahmad Ismail… why oh why? Because of your announcement, I am pretty sure there will be a lot of hoo-ha’s going against you. Can’t all the races come together in peace and harmony in this nation? Why must you promote that in Permatang Pauh? Why?
You seriously do owe the Chinese community an apology. You just can’t get away with it easily. But, Sorry seems to be the hardest word for you right now.
