This was posted about the Singaporean Malays in the blog of DAP's supremo Lim Kit Siang,
and this is what I read in a report today,
Survey on plight of S'pore Malays
So, which one is the truth, Singaporean Malays are happy or not?
Two things I am sure the Singaporean Malays could be proud of are that the country's national anthem is in Malay and that the country's football team (which is currently the best in South East Asia) is predominantly made up of Malay players.
Nonetheless, this is what was highlighted in the survey about how Singaporean Malays feel,
GRIEVANCES: They feel their loyalty is being questioned, face widening income gaps and feel discriminated at work
Okay, I think there is some truth to this survey.
For instance, as for the Singaporean Malays' loyalty, I have been to the Istana three times in the past and at none of those occasions that I saw a Malay security personnel on duty there.
In contrast, you may see a lot of Malay policemen at the Singapore CIQ of the Causeway.
Are they trusted to only jaga those coming and going from and to Malaysia?
If there are any Singaporean Malays among readers of this blog, I hope they may enlighten us on whether they are truly happy with the social arrangement in their country.
Maybe, we Malaysian Malays could learn something from them.
