Whose country is Malaysia?

Umno man: ‘Birth of a Nation’ is wrong

IPOH: The phrase “The Birth of a Nation” is misleading and gives the impression that Malaysia was only born 50 years ago, said Tambun Umno Youth division chief Nasir Ismail.

He said this was an insult to the country as it portrayed the Malays as a race without a nation of their own. 

“Malaysia has taken concrete steps to break the shackles of the imperialists’ economic marginalisation,” he said during the divisional meeting here yesterday.

He explained that the Tourism Ministry had been using that phrase to promote the country in its advertisements abroad.

No knowledge of history, no knowledge of what Malaysia is (a federation not some Malay Sultanate okay!) and racist to the core.

Shall we say more?

    Hmmm…well depends on understanding of the tag line. but to take it word for word I think it is true…Malaysia before independence was known as Malaya. So maybe it is right after all.
