Najib with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. –

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has insisted that his government is not “racist at all”,

pointing out that it caters to the needs of “small minorities” as well.

In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour yesterday, Najib said he was trying to achieve his long-term goals and vision for the country, but quickly said that “the majority of the people must not be marginalised” to maintain stability.

“We do cater as well, in a very inclusive way, for the small minorities,” he said. “We are not racist at all.”

“My priority is to ensure peace and harmony in Malaysia. That is uppermost in my mind,” Najib told Amanpour in London, where he was attending the World Islamic Economic Forum.

“It’s very alarming to see what’s happening in the Muslim world. And it’s about time we come to our senses and realise that moderation is the only path that will ensure peace and stability for the Muslim world, and for the wider world.”

Najib vehemently denied allegations of government corruption and electoral fraud during the last general election, a question which Amanpour put to him.

“By and large the allegations are totally unfounded,” he insisted.

He drew attention to his “very positive record”, which he said included abolishing the draconian Internal Security Act that allowed for detention without trial….

i have disbanded the ISA “—- sure ,only to have replaced it with a just as draconian law under another name.

.
my priority is to ensure peace and harmony in the country.. ”
operative word here is harmony…how harmonious can our society be when racial and religious issues are being played up intentionally to intense levels and your goverment is largely resposible for all the brouhaha in the name of political expediency.That my dear PM, is a very hypocritical statement to make especially when it is your own administration that has created the friction between the communities, least of all by yourself blaming the other ethnic community for your political party’s poor performance

.

long term vision , growing pains ? …. seems more like you are killing the baby before it has a chance to grow.

.

inclusive policies…
reforms in policies are precisely what is driving talent away”brain drain is directly caused by the racist policies of the affirmative action that favours the marjority at the expense of minorities, denying them prospects in education and advancements.

.

how can you lay claim to the position of  Malaysia taking a moderate stance when the whole world has been criticizing our country as having extremist policies regarding Race/Religion ,and not without merit.

.

Dear PM , you cannot sell what you don’t have…you cannot represent what which is fictitious that only exist in theory.The international community are not as dumb as many Malaysians are, and especially the media.. They see through your  transparent rhetoric as clear as day.
