What difference does it make? Were the Malays here before the Melanaus or the Ibans? The Ibans in fact migrated to Sarawak from Kalimantan or Dutch Borneo in the 1600s. Didn't some Chinese come here some 500 years ago even before some Indian Muslims whose fathers arrived less than 100 years ago and who suddenly became more Malay than the Malays? Many Malays of Javanese, Bugis and Sumatran descent came here a mere 200 years ago, and some even later. What difference does it make? We are all immigrants.
We now share this great land and have to live together with each other peacefully and harmoniously. Why should some Malays - especially the Malayans and particularly those from UMNO - bully the rest of us, merely to fulfil their own selfish and greedy agendas, which, it must be added, not all Malays share?
We are all immigrants and we are all Malaysians, but if the Malayans (of the ruling elite) insist on mistreating the rest of us, then I'm a Sarawakian first.
