Dear Datuk Seri Mohd Nazri Aziz,
You said being a Malaysian does not mean one is anti Malay. That is the gist of your latest reply to Utusan Malaysia.
In the same context, being pro Malay does not mean one is anti Malaysian. Correct? Therefore why would you be rattled when somebody doesn’t declare himself as Malaysian first?
Even your boss had said that his 1Malaysia encompasses and transcends all. And by declaring one is pro Malay, does not contradict the Constitution.
And most importantly, you certainly cannot rank nationality and race because the two run on two different premises altogether.
Nazri’s usefulness in the cabinet is at its end. Unless of course those who hated him then for the alleged corruption and also his crude antics, now suddenly made a u-turn and love him to death.
I would advice Nazri to read these two articles below for his further education on the matter:
Thank you Nazri for your services to the nation. I know you feel you should be treated with due respect befitting your position.
But respect must be earned. Not demanded. The way you drummed your so called ‘contribution’ to the country in all your replies to Utusan just tells us that you carry a chip on your shoulder. You feel that you must be given respect at all cost!
Well, do you think you should be respected?
Respect on you was lost the moment you blatantly condemned your former boss using vile words and uncouth behaviour.
That’s when you lost it. No amount of self praises can justify the demand of respect you crave from the people here.
There’s only one thing left to do if you want to salvage yourself and sleep better at night. Being a Malay where respecting the elders is tantamount to having good manners, I am sure you would know what to do. Showing egoistical tendencies through the media is certainly not one of them.
