Demi Agama, Bangsa dan Tanah air - from a Malay political heavyweight's POV

Disclaimer: This is a repost

In this very lengthy post yet could be considered as a brief, comprehensive, succinct analysis on a very serious discourse (and the same time thorny issue that has been central thesis whenever one discuss about Malaysia's socio-political history) - the survival of Malay. The author, renowned Tan Sri Sanusi Junid made it easier for any "minah" and "bujang" (my Malay substitute for English's idiom on "any Tom, Dick or Harry") or any layman to digest.

The following is one of the many points he raised that strike a chord in me, plainly because I reckon, as I am one of the alumna. Wonder how many of UiTM graduates are supporting this? Indeed, if every one of the alumni contributes to the fund, the university would have sufficient funds to utilize for the betterment of its students vis-a-vis the young Malays.
Setelah begitu lama kita tidak buat cadangan yang membuka peluang untuk kita bertindak atas inisiatif sendiri tiba-tiba laksana musim kemarau didatangi hujan Yang Berhormat Menteri Pendidikan mencadangkan tabung alumni UiTM yang wajib didukung oleh sekitar 500,000 graduan UiTM dengan sumbangan RM2,000.00 seorang dan mensasarkan jumlah kutipan RM1billion.

Thus this blog recommends anyone with such interest in the topic of Malay, its survival, its dilemma, its political social-economy prowess (or lack of) and other subtopics that may rooted under the big five letters, sacred word of M.A.L.A.Y, should spend their quality Internet time browsing the article Demi Agama, Bangsa dan Tanah Air (or loosely translated in English - In the name of religion, race and nation).

And oh of course the article is written in Bahasa Melayu or Malay language with just a few paragraphs in English.
