I hate opening threads, because I prefer joining conversations rather than starting them. But of late (the last decade or so actually) I have been noticing a very disturbing trend within malaysians (and non malaysians alike but they're irrelevant).

And that is the level of ignorance exhibited on the single most important document of this country - The Federal Constitution of Malaysia.pdf). All these issues pertaining to ICERD, NEP, bumi rights, and so on and so forth can be resolved or outright turned into non-issues if people just bloody download a copy onto their computers or phones and read it. Malaysians spend hours upon hours upon hours shopping and playing with social media, but they can't spend 30 minutes read at least the first 3 parts of the Constitution?

Let me give you the highlights in case you're too bloody lazy to read.
Article 4.1 - This Constitution is the supreme law of the Federation and any law passed after Merdeka Day which is inconsistent with this Constitution shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be void.
Article 5.1 - No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty save in accordance with law.
Articles 8.1 and 8.2 - (1) All persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law. (2) Except as expressly authorized by this Constitution, there shall be no discrimination against citizens on the ground only of religion, race, descent or place of birth in any law relating to the acquisition, holding or disposition of property or the establishing or carrying on of any trade, business, profession, vocation or employment.
Article 9.1 - No citizen shall be banished or excluded from the Federation
Article 10.1 - Subject to Clauses (2), (3) and (4) (a) every citizen has the right to freedom of speech and expression; (b) all citizens have the right to assemble peaceably and without arms; (c) all citizens have the right to form associations.
Article 136 - All persons of whatever race in the same grade in the service of the Federation shall, subject to the terms and conditions of their employment, be treated impartially.
Article 153.1 - It shall be the responsibility of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to safeguard the special position of the Malays and natives of any of the States of Sabah and Sarawak and the legitimate interests of other communities in accordance with the provisions of this Article.
Article 153.7 - Nothing in this Article shall operate to deprive or authorise the deprivation of any person of any right, privilege, permit or licence accrued to or enjoyed or held by him or to authorised a refusal to renew to any person any such permit or licence or a refusal to grant to the heirs, successors or assigns of a person any permit or licence when the renewal or grant might reasonably be expected in the ordinary course of events.
Article 153.9 - Nothing in this Article shall empower Parliament to restrict business or trade solely for the purpose of reservations for Malays and natives of any of the States of Sabah and Sarawak.

In other words, racism is illegal, affirmative action is permission, but it is to be enforced by the Agong, and Parliament has no rights to pass laws that discriminates ANYONE. NEP is unconsitutional, Bumiputra discount is unconstitutional, UiTM is consitution ONLY IF it is sanctioned by the Agong. ICERD is not inconsistent with the Federal Constitution. Sure there are exceptions made within the articles, but the overall gist is the exceptions does NOT allow for racism anyway.

Instead of reading what's accorded to you, and what's the truth, Malaysians opt to believe what they're told to believe, and then form feelings based on those beliefs. Stop being ignorant and learn about what defines your country and the civil liberties you, as a Malaysian, are born with.
