The dilemma of UMNO's racial politics
A Malay student graduating from a Chinese independent school at Perak was having financial difficulty to further her study at a Taiwanese university.
She was granted scholarship covering tuition fees and full accommodation. But her poor family can't afford her the flight ticket and living expenses.
She definitely would not get help from the UMNO government, which has wanted to bury the Chinese independent education for decades.
In her moment of need, a Chinese farmer from Negeri Sembilan came forward, donating rm5,000 to enable her trip overseas. Bringing along his family, he traveled hundreds of miles to Perak to present the fund.
It's probably the most embarrassing moment for a government that's only interested in indulging in race and religion politicking, without looking at the real needs of the rakyat.
In fact, in this heightened politicking season leading up to the UMNO party election in Oct, this report by Sin Chew Daily can be deemed... cheng cheng cheng ... SEDITIOUS! PERKASA bigots would be unleashed to protest at the paper's HQ at Petaling Jaya.
