What we stand for

G25 is committed to pursue a just, democratic, peaceful, tolerant, harmonious, moderate and progressive multi-racial, multi cultural, multi religious Malaysia through Islamic principles of Wassatiyah (moderation) and Maqasid Syariah (well-being of the people) that affirms justice, compassion, mercy, equity.

Malaysia is to be led by rule of law, good governance, respect for human rights and upholding the institution of the country.

We aim to ensure, raise awareness, promote that Syariah laws and civil laws should work in harmony and that the Syariah laws are used within its legal jurisdiction and limits as provided for by the federal and state division of powers.

There should be rational dialogues to inform people on how Islam is used for public law and policy that effects the multi ethnic and multi religious Malaysia and within the confines of the Federal Constitution, the supreme law of the nation.

We work in a consultative committee of experts to advise the government and facilitate amendments to the state Syariah laws, to align to the Federal Constitution and the spirit of Rukun Negara.

It is imperative to achieve a politically stable, economically progressive Malaysia and to be able to enjoy the harmony, tolerance, understanding and cooperation in this multi diverse country.

More young Malays can stand on their own feet

I congratulate The Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan for their statement to counter the allegations made in the “Rise of the Ummah” convention that only the Malays stood against the Japanese occupation, the communist Insurgency and British rule. Therefore, only they have rights under the Malaysian sun, while the other races have none.

The convention speakers were shameless in twisting the facts of history and making unnecessary racist remarks that are against the letter and spirit of the Constitution and the Rukunegara.

The convention made all these remarks to justify the demands that government student scholarships, civil service jobs and business opportunities from the government should only be given to Malays. These demands are hurtful not only to other races but us Malays too as we certainly do not like the world to get the impression that by virtue of our race, we do not have to work hard and compete as the government will give us everything from the day we are born to the end of our life.

The speakers should know that more and more from the new Malay generation are confident they can stand on their own feet. In fact, many Malay graduates with technical and professional qualifications prefer to make it on their own by venturing into small businesses, ranging from food stalls to high tech start-ups and taking all the risks, often with non Malay partners. They do not expect government hand-outs. In fact Malay businessmen themselves often complain about the preferential racial treatment in government economic policies because they tend to benefit those with political connections and exclude those who are genuine entrepreneurs and risk takers.

Government assistance should be given on the basis of real needs, not race, as this will be more fair and just to all Malaysians. The real needs are among the lowest income groups and the unfortunate people such as the old and the sick, the genuinely unemployed, unwed mothers and abandoned children, irrespective of race.

The convention comprised former senior education officers. Of all people, its shocking that they have the sterile idea that spoon feeding is a virtue. Any expert on culture and civilisation can tell them that this is the worst value that any race can have.
