I thought long about it for some time and wondered what the other 3 races, namely Chinese, Malays and Indians are doing in and for their respective self-help associations like Mendaki and SINDA?
Why is it that 3 Indians, (Yaacob Halimah, Marican and Khan) can be considered ‘Malays’ by Mendaki and the average true Malays on the street are powerless to do anything about it? Do they not have a voting process for key positions in their associations the way we Eurasians have for our Eurasian Association? You can rest assure that we will vote all our officials out if they ever ‘certify’ the above 3 as “Eurasians”! (Children who follow the mother’s race are considered bastards in the Asian culture)
In fact, there was an uproar in the EA during last year’s Bursary Awards when so many recipients weren’t actually Eurasians but Indian Catholics and Filipinas!
Hope that the Malays will realize Islam is not Melayu and an Indiginous Malay Christian is more “Malay” than Indian Muslims aka “peranakan” among the Malay peoples!
