Dr M says ‘racist’ Kit Siang wants to pit Chinese against Malays




SHAH ALAM, May 2 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has dubbed Lim Kit Siang “an extremist racist”, saying last night the DAP strongman was trying to sway the Chinese to hate the Malays in a bid to shore up support ahead of the May 5 general election.

Speaking before a Malay crowd here, the former prime minister said Lim and the DAP have been “poisoning” Chinese minds in the polls campaign by telling them the community are victims of discrimination by a Malay government.

“I will say it out as vocal as possible. Lim Kit Siang is a racist. Lim Kit Siang is a racist. Lim Kit Siang is an extremist racist,” the country’s longest-serving prime minister told a crowd of about 3,000 adoring Barisan Nasional (BN) supporters.

“Why am I calling Lim Kit Siang a racist? It’s because he has gone to contest in Gelang Patah where the majority there are Chinese. There, he will persuade the Chinese to hate the Malays,” he said

The Chinese form the majority in Gelang Patah at 52 per cent followed by the Malays and Indians at 34 per cent and 12 per cent respectively. There are 106,726 registered voters there for Election 2013.

Lim faces four-term incumbent Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman in the fight for the federal seat.

Dr Mahathir claimed the Chinese have enjoyed political and economic freedom under BN rule and dismissed allegations of racial discrimination.

He pointed out that most of Malaysia’s richest people are non-Malays, naming tycoons like Tan Sri Ananda Krishnan and Tan Sri Vincent Tan as examples of BN’s success in ensuring equitable development among all races.

“Now if you throw a stone in this group you are sure to hit one millionaire. A lot of them are Chinese,” he said.

BN’s lynchpin Umno has constantly tried to paint the DAP as anti-Malay and anti-Islam as it becomes more dependent on the Malay votes to keep federal power in light of dwindling Chinese support.

Previously, Dr Mahathir had written on his blog,, that a Lim win in Gelang Patah would result in racial clashes that would ruin the existing co-operation between the Malay majority and the Chinese community.

He also pointed out that unlike the DAP, BN’s senior ally the MCA was supported by the Chinese, Malays and Indians in a power-sharing concept he termed “kongsi” (sharing) that goes back to independence.

Last night, he again explained that it was because of this power-sharing concept that the Chinese and Indians have become successful, claiming that under British rule, the two races were kept poor and prohibited from pursuing big businesses.

“But now they can have big business… they have enjoyed the benefits and not only the Malays,” he said.
