(Khairy Jamaluddin or KJ may have said things that are against the concept of Saya Anak Malaysia in the past but hopefully, he had realised that embarking on it would be the right way for the country. Image source: Internet)
An interesting conversation that took place on 1Malaysia:-
The biggest laughter came with the final question from Khairy, who asked half-farcically:
“Now, tell me, is 1Malaysia the best thing that ever happened since Merdeka?”
Chin Huat: “Well, I generally don’t trust politicians. For me, the public needs to view them like pets. You have to train them or they will go wild on you. It’s just like having a dog, you know. Put it through a training regime, then it will serve you well.” (Ouch… the man can bite!)
Haris: “Where’s the sincerity? You say 1Malaysia, but the nation is still divided into bumiputra and non-bumiputra.”
Khairy: “But Haris, aren’t you a bumiputra yourself?”
Haris: “I’m not a bumiputra. I’m an Anak Bangsa Malaysia.”

Saya Anak Malaysia was founded on this notion that all of us are first and foremost Malaysians and Malaysia is our Home.
“One People, One Nation” is what we need to achieve at the end of the day.
1Malaysia may be another but before we can embark on that journey, we need to recognise that we all are in the first place Anak Malaysia.
