Najib: Malays will be homeless, degraded if Pakatan wins

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak has warned the Malays and bumiputras that they will be displaced and degraded to the lowest level should the opposition gain power in the coming General Election (GE).

The Umno president said it was pertinent that the group make sure Barisan Nasional's (BN) came out of the elections victorious to ensure the survival of the Malays and the country in general.

"Certainly, the Opposition's loathe towards the Malay and bumiputra's privileges goes way back, and the dignity of our noble race will stepped on.

"In fact, worse than that, we will be made homeless and degraded to the lowest level (terbangsat) in our own country," he said in his policy speech at the Umno General Assembly here today.

Najib pointed out the privileges currently enjoyed by the Malays, including the position of the institution of the Malay rulers, as well as the Majlis Amanah Rakyat, Tabung Haji and Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) would be undermined if Pakatan Harapan wins the election.

"The size of our civil servants will also be downsized, while our proud Universiti Teknologi Mara (UITM) will have it's objectives failed if the opposition wins," he said.

Najib, who is the Prime Minister, also urged the Malays not to be fooled by the struggle brought forward by Umno splinter party Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM), which he claimed was being "toyed" by the anti-Malay and anti-Islam DAP.

"Even in DAP's constitution, there is no mention of Islam being the official religion of the country. In fact, their goal is to make the nation fully secular," he said.
