PM right about Malay forum, media twisted my comments, says Khalid


Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad has backtracked on his comments about the Malay Dignity Congress, now saying the community has a right to gather to discuss issues affecting them. – The Malaysian insight pic by Nazir Sufari, October 27, 2019.

THE Malay Dignity Congress is not racist and it is the right of the Malays to hold the gathering, said Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad, backtracking on his earlier comments that such events could cause racial strife.

Taking to Twitter this morning, Khalid said: “I AGREE with Tun (Dr Mahathir Mohamad) that when a certain race has an assembly to discuss its issues and the country’s issues, it is NOT racist, but it is their right”.

    BUt fear not! All of these just continues to affirm, that PH cabinet members have become addicted to the good life that is Putrajaya!

    My only puzzlement is that - Amanah, DAP - their politicians only needed 18 months to master what it tool BN politicians at least 30 years.

  • We need ministers that have principles. Not cowards that turn tail. You have the right to have a congregation but what is said is racist and will not be anything else no matter which minister or the press twists and turns.
