Malaysian Citizenship For Vote Scam

YOURSAY 'They will now have to share the cake with the millions of instant bumiputeras from the Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Pakistan.'

Pakistani gets countryman blue IC in 20 days

your sayTehTarik: The biggest losers in this citizenship-for-vote scandal will be the bumiputeras. They will now have to share the cake with the millions of instant bumiputeras from the Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

This means greater competition for schools, scholarships, jobs, housing, business, hospital beds, etc, etc. It baffles many how the local bumiputeras can still continue to vote for Umno-BN when they have sold bumi rights to millions of foreigners.

The Malays should realise that many of these instant bumiputeras are already competing for jobs and other services with the local population. Most of the stalls in Chow Kit are run by Indonesian bumis.

Government maternity beds are overcrowded with Indonesian bumi babies. Many of the Filipino and Pakistani bumis from Sabah are already in the Klang Valley working as security guards and taxi drivers, again competing with local bumis.

Soon the children of these instant bumis will be vying for scholarships and jobs.

Indeed, former PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad has committed the greatest act of treason against both the Sabah bumi population as well as the local Malays.

I Love Recond Scorpene: This is a great embarrassment to the entire nation - easy citizenship. Go to Dubai, you will never get it even if one of your children is born on the arid sands of UAE.

Go to the United States, you will have to interviewed left, right and centre and same goes in Australia and New Zealand.

It makes Malaysia look like a haunt for easy ICs (identity cards) and yet I have friends who have been staying here for almost 20 years and still have to renew their permits annually.

CHY: It is easier for a Pakistani, Indian, Indonesian and Filipino to be issued a MyKad in Sabah than it is for a legitimate Peninsular Malaysian like me to be allowed to stay there.

How ironic and what treachery it is for it to happen in Malaysia.

Black Mamba: They get their IC faster than our employment probation. What a nauseating scandal.

We have to make sure that all BN ministers with knowledge of Project IC are arrested and put behind bars when Pakatan Rakyat comes to power. Clean up this nonsense once and for all.
Dude: The politicians involved in these sickening episodes are cheats, betrayers to the people and traitors to the country. They should be sent to jail for life for the harm they have done to Malaysia.

Keneoh: The true citizens of Malaysia have been betrayed by the most evil regime for 50 over years. The electoral roll is now padded with illegals so that they can remain in power.

Everybody must go out to vote for Pakatan to counteract this in the coming GE.
NRD made Indian national a citizen using false SD

Boiling Mud: So they make unqualified foreigners instant citizens.

No wonder that these days there are far too many foreigners sitting at the 'five-foot ways' and near shopping malls begging for money - some of them are actually mental cases that should be kept in the mental hospitals in their own homelands, and some exhibiting grotesque open sores with the hope of winning sympathy.

Meanwhile, waiting in line for years to gain the rightful citizenship are thousands of qualified foreign spouses of Malaysians with professional skills to contribute to nation building. The politicians in Bolehland certainly know how to screw up their own country.

Kgen: Other countries pick the best and brightest foreigners to be given citizenship. Malaysia grants citizenship to uneducated and unskilled foreigners freely as long as they are Muslims and are willing to put an ‘X' in the right place.

Meanwhile, skilled and educated Malaysians flee the country and spouses of Malaysians who are professionals find it hard to get permanent residency or citizenship.

So we are exchanging skilled people for unskilled people. No wonder the country is falling further and further behind our neighbours. Soon we will be exporting maids to Indonesia.

Fair&Just: You reap what you sow. Such ease of obtaining citizenship will breed rakyat with questionable loyalty to king and country.

Bolehland can go down the road to decay and destruction as a result of problems and troubles from its highly volatile society and vulnerability to intrusion of foreign interference.

Starr: This hardly sounds like what Mahathir has said - that his action to sanction the grant of citizenship to illegals was justified because they have been living in this country for 20-30 years.

Mahathir's 'blanket' justification is far from the reality on the ground. Indeed, his reasoning is simply untenable, unbelievable and devoid of any merit.

Thetruth: Now we know why they created a law that do not allowed the voters list prepared by the Election Commission to be challenged in the court.
