Police questioned Chua on "Ketuanan Melayu" - Malaysiakini

Deputy MCA president Chua Soi Lek was questioned by the police for 40 minutes Wednesday in relation to his controversial speech last week on Ketuanan Melayu (Malay supremacy) reports Malaysiakini .

The former health minister (right)arrived at the Bandar Sunway police station in Petaling Jaya at 9:15 in the morning. He had no lawyers with him.

"It is normal," Chua told reporters at the police station when asked to comment on the police request for him turn up to have his statement recorded.

He declined to say whether he thought this was a a result of a police report against him or whether it was a police initiative following protests by some quarters over the speech he made.

Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar, meanwhile, said Chua was being investigated under the Sedition Act 1948, reported Sin Chew Online.

Khalid said this followed a report lodged in Johor by a group in Batu Pahat.

In his speech delivered at the Kancil Awards Festival Speaker Series last Thursday,Chua had said the Chinese community could accept a Malay leadership but not Ketuanan Melayu (Malay supremacy).

He described the Ketuanan Melayu concept as unacceptable because it implied a master and servant relationship.

An organisation of young Malay graduates - the Gabungan Graduan Melayu Muda - has demanded that Chua apologise to the Malays for the speech which they claimed was seditious.

They also want him to pay compensation amounting to RM2 million.

Jerlun MP Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir also lashed out at Chua for questioning the Malay supremacy concept.

"When these leaders are making this kind of statement, it shows that they know nothing of our history or maybe they are trying to act as heroes to their community," said Mukhriz.

At a press conference Tuesday, the MCA No 2 claimed that his speech was being deliberately misinterpreted and twisted by certain quarters for their own gain. - For Malaysiakini subscribers read here to continue...

What has happen to civil and citizen rights and democracy and freedom of speech? What is Ketuanan Melayu and which part of the FC it is coined? Why the UMNO politicians are harping on something that doesn't exist. Chua was right when he said that ketuanan Melayu is about slave and Malaysia going backwards to practice slavery....?????

Ketuanan Melayu means Ketuanan Raja-Raja.

Not meaning the Malay is supreme.

All have to brush up on Bahasa Malaysia and learn 'Yang Tersurat dan Yang Tersirat'

Obviously Chua Soi Lek is blur and poor in understanding 'yang tersirat'

He said he rejects Ketuanan Melayu, so he rejects Raja-raja. This is against the constitution.

Malaysia under police state, no freedom to voice up. why too sensitive. We look like worse then 51 years ago.

If you fall on these catagory of people which is can not accept people comment, forever this people will not able to growth.

Nothing we can success coz of the word of KETUANAN. To be KETUANAN you can earn from your hard working and success in certain area. ThinK !!! with holding this word can you compete with (singapore? US? China? India?) without hard work.

Malaysian people should be more moderate not extremist. Let get comment from other openly and view and discuss. We shoule be more mature enought to listen to others comment.

There is a need to define "Ketuanan Melayu".Presently, there is a lot of confusion.Firstly, the term is not found in the Constitution.From what I can gather, the concept of "Ketuanan Melayu" was enanciated by UMNO politicians quite recently...probably some twenty years ago, for their political interests.Most peoples will be confused as the word "ketuanan" comes from "tuan"When translated into English "Ketuanan Melayu" becomes Malay Supremacy.Most peoples take this to mean that the malay race is supposed to be supreme...that is superior to the other races, and rightly do not agree as a superior race do not need affirmative actions!Nobody is questioning the position of the Sultans and the special rights of the malays as they are enshrined in our Constitution.Thus , the need to clearly define the meaning of the term.
