Ridhuan Tee: “8 out of 10 rich M’sians are Chinese”
Excerpts from his Utusan weekly fitnah which can also be read in his blog ridhuantee.blogspot.com; the article ‘Belajar dari bangsa berjaya’ (Aug 22)
Ridhuan writes that the ultra kiasu websites are very unhappy with the statement by the SP Setia developer who praised the NEP, whom he – as only to be expected – defends to the hilt. (You can read ‘SP Setia chief claims Chinese thrived under NEP‘ in Insider.)
Ridhuan claims Chinese individuals control 73 percent of the wealth owned by the 40 richest in Malaysia “dan lapan dari setiap 10 orang kaya adalah Cina” (and eight out of every 10 rich people are Chinese).
Ridhuan also rapped the ultra kiasu on how they, with only a small victory in the recent general election, have become so “brave” anf thus try to imagine if they had managed to rule the entire country fully. “I request that we (‘kita’) open our eyes and our mind” [to see their real behaviour].
“Lihatlah betapa liciknya perancangan segelintir mereka.” See how slick some of them are in the way they do things. They will only be satisfied when the bumiputera housing discount is abolished.
He also wrote that many among the [ultra kiasu] do not return to Malaysia [to serve the country] after studying abroad even though they were on government scholarships.
Alluding to the title of his article, he said: “I feel quite worried with our attitude that wants to show that we [Malay-Muslims] are accepted by everyone. We want to be applauded [get a pat on the back] whereas they have other plans. I suggest that we busy ourselves having a lot of dialogues with the ultra kiasu NGOs, only then can we discover how ultra they really are. If we only encounter them once, there is no guarantee that we will be aware of what they are up to.”
Ridhuan wrote that the ultra kiasu voices received strong opposition from several Malay organisations like Perkasa, including police reports made. He said he is certain that the government will give in to the demands made by the ultra kiasu (e.g. by the Economic Congress organized by MCA recently).
“Yes, we will not give them everything that they ask for, but we will give a little. That ‘little’ [gain] is a big victory to them. This is how a successful race employs one strategy after another. Why is it that we have still not learned from them?”
