It's more important local Chinese are M'sians at heart, Najib tells Dr M

It is not important what kind of cutleries are used by the Malaysian Chinese, said former Prime Minister Najib Razak, responding to the chopstick analogy by his successor Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Speaking at the 2021 World Chinese Economic Forum held in Petaling Jaya today, Najib said what is more important is that the local Chinese are Malaysians at heart.

"It doesn't matter if Malaysian Chinese eat with chopsticks, fork and spoon, or use their hands, as long as in their hearts and minds, they are truly Malaysians.

"The Malaysian Chinese community have shown their entrepreneurial skill, tenacity, ability and grit to be successful in facing adverse challenges.

"In this regard, any post-pandemic recovery will count on their inherent strength to contribute to this process," the ex-premier said.

Two weeks ago, Mahathir used the example of the Chinese community continuing to eat with chopsticks to highlight the challenges in assimilating the non-Malay population in the country.

  1. The 2021 World Chinese Economic Forum held in Petaling Jaya!!

    Must be a f*cked forum organised by those lowlifes Chinese M'sians who have benefitted from jibby's regime of kleptomaniac!

    These r the nonchinese, w/o a tiny trace of their ancestral teachings!

  2. Habis Eat with Tangan- Hans and Spread Covid Hendra Omicron Delta Virus...Patutlah lebih banyak Moolayu mampus berbanding bangsa dan agama lain..... Keluar Agama Supremacist Bodohkan awak atau terima lagi bencana Sumpahan Tuhan terhadap Kerajaan Gagal BN PN Bersatu Pejuang UMNO pAS Bangsat Negara

  3. spoken like a first class hypocrite, different forum wears different cap, both are racist nonetheless, one is subtle the other is unapologetic, thinks the chinese have forgotten about the bloody kris incident or the hidden hand behind the likes of jamal jamban, ali tinju that turns everything racial before ge14 and again with pas after ge14 inciting the emotions and sentiments of the malays towards the chinese that eventually resulted in the collapse of ph
    what is paramount is for you mfers to stop perpetuating these suspicions, doubts and myth
    that the nons are disloyal, we are all malaysians at heart, you anak hailam


    I really feel embarrassed when being confronted by friends enquiring if I have invited former Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri ... to officiate the . . . Economic Forum to be held on xxyy.

    I wish to clarify and to put on record that this new Economic Forum, has nothing to do with me.

    It is true that the initial Economic Forum originally had been founded by me in 2009 and this forum was first hosted in the Palace of Golden Horses supported by Tan Sri .., after a few years.

    The name of the forum has since been changed to World Chinese Economic Summit and then this year to Global Chinese Economic and Technology Summit.

    We had just recently organized the Global Chinese Economic and Technology Summit and it was successfully held in Shangri-La Rasa Sayang, Penang on 16 December 2021.

    Its opening address was by Prime Minister of Malaysia, Yang Amat Berhormat Dato’ Seri Ismail Sabri and this summit has been officiated by the Governor of Penang, H.E Tun Dato’ Seri Utama Ahmad Puzi Abdul Razak.

    I have come to know the organiser of the (other) event has been using the name of .... and some of our past photos in China two years ago and has called it the ..... This will surely cause confusion.

    The organiser of this .. event should not call it .... in the first place. This time they invited the former Prime Minister ... to that forum, a convicted criminal awaiting outcome of an appeal.

    Surely they caught media attention, but l need to make my stand clear, we must respect the judiciary and uphold the Rule of Law in Malaysia.

    To involve him in this “new” .... which is not organised by me is a huge embarrassment to me.

    I hope that the above statement has made my position clear.

    *Tan Sri Lee *

    Founders of ..., .... and now Global Chinese Economy and Technology Summit,.

  5. The 2021 World Chinese Economic Forum is a huge embarrassment, inviting a Convicted Criminal Kleptocrat awaiting appeal to give its keynote address.

    It implies the Chinese Business Community is in cahoots with Bossku, which is most definitely NOT the case.

  6. While it gives a nice feeling to hear Najib give a good one to the old buffoon, we must remember that Najib is a convict.

    That he is running free to address an international forum speaks to his lack of shame. It also displays an arrogance as though he knows he will ultimately be free.

    It is also reflective of Malaysian society that, first, he was invited to a global event and second, society seems to accept that it is alright for a convicted man to be free and given a place of honour in a global event.
