Wanita PKR said today that it has proof that illegal immigrants registering with the Home Ministry’s 6P amnesty programme have been made to swear an oath that they and their families will vote for Barisan Nasional come polling day.
Wanita PKR chief Zuraida Kamaruddin had brought to the party evidence in the form of a written statement requiring them to pledge allegiance to Umno and BN. The statement which reads:
“Bismillahhirahmanirrahim. Wallahi Wabillahi Watawallahi. I (name) in the name of Allah pledge and promise to be loyal to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the Sultans and Malaysia. “I / my husband / my wife / my children will undividedly support and vote Umno / Barisan Nasional (BN). I will also continue to fight for Islam and the Malay race. My family and I promise to keep this SECRET, and if I break it I will pay the price.”
Zuraida said the statement was obtained from 6P centres in either Sepang, Hulu Selangor or Shah Alam, but would not specify which to protect the whistleblowers. She also called on the Najib administration to put a stop to the 6P programme and conduct a high-level probe into the allegations to ensure that the amnesty drive does not violate the country’s sovereignty to ensure continuity of power for Umno and Barisan Nasional.
If there is any truth in the above allegations, then the BN government has sunk to new depths in their desperation to cling on to power. Not only is the above allegation highly treasonous it is also a slap in the face for Malaysians.
Non-Malays in the country do not enjoy the “Bumiputra” status unlike their Malay and Muslim counterparts. However, if a Muslim immigrant is granted new citizenship, he is automatically given bumiputra status based on his Islamic beliefs.
If this is allowed to go on at the expense of non-Malay Citizens in the country, it will be a big mockery to the tax-paying non-Malay citizens, and also the Bumiputras of this country, who have to share their ‘first-class’ status with that of immigrants. Already the number of ‘bumiputras’ in this country is more than the non-bumiputras, so there is not much sense in injecting more new bumiputras into the congested system.
