Ambiga mudah lupa?
MM Online on Ambiga querying writing of “new” history of Malaysia:
I wonder who started it first, this creative writing or re-writing of Malaysian history?
Maybe Ambiga can tell us, PLEASE.
In Malaysia there is no department specializing in the re-writing and fabrication of creative “ketuanan history” than the Biro Tatanegara (BTN).
Not only does BTN re-write “ketuanan history” it also specializes in lecturing and indoctrinating Malays into, among many things, believing they are Malaysians different to Chinese and Indian Malaysians.
BTN was formed in 1974 but was originally a section of the Youth Ministry called Youth Research Unit (Unit Penyelidikan Belia). It was at that time still okay.
But “someone”, wakakaka became PM in 1981 – guess who, my dear Ambiga, wakakaka again – and transferred the Unit Penyelidikan Belia over to the PM’s Department, renamed it Biro Tatanegara and the rest is history.
22 years plus a baker’s dozen (13) would not be that long as for you, my dear Ambia, to forget the original culprit for his evil role in creating the concept of ketuanan Melayu and making our fellow citizens, the Malays, into our tuan.
