Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria called today on Malays to defend their race and rights to the land, saying Prophet Muhammad also spoke about his race.
The Perak Mufti said at the launch of former Selangor PAS chief Datuk Hasan Ali’s new Muslim NGO Jati that “it is compulsory for Malays to speak about this as this is a Malay country.”
“Some people say we should not talk about Malays. They call us nationalists. But even the Prophet spoke about his race and tribe,” he said in his speech.
“This land is the right of Malays but today we have lost it. I’m not sure but probably less than 40 per cent belongs to Malays now. We are supposed to have 30 per cent of the economy but only have 17 per cent. Still we are silent,” he said before breaking into tears.
Gombak Setia asemblyman Hasan Ali later said Jati would be “saviours of the faith” by defending Islam, Malay rights and the Malay Rulers, a concept he termed as IMR.
The former Selangor executive councillor told about 300 at the launch of Jati here that the weakened faith of Muslims had led to them being left behind in the economy and plagued by moral and social ills.
But Harussani told the audience that “just forming groups and clapping your hands will get you nowhere.”
He also said that it was incumbent on Malays to defend Islam and the royalty “who first adopted Islam, leading to all Malays becoming Muslims.”
“They cannot be separated from Malays that is why in the constitution the rulers are to protect Malays.”
He added that the many insults that Muslims have endured in Malaysia has led to their faith being shaken.
This so called "ulama"is a joke.Is he blind or what?It is the Malays and the one pretending to be Malays who betrayed the Malays.This man is really an "ular dalam semak",really a cari makan mufti.
How about the politically powerful malay that rob the rakyat money (part of it also belongs to the malay) by corruption, kroni, AP etc. Why not you open your mouth to ask these robbers to stop it and return all their money to the rakyat? If you dare to do so then i respect you 100 percent. No body is questioning the rights of the malay, we only tak boleh tahan the way they enrich themselves and kroni, pilfer, rob and korup sampai berbillion billion dah hilang!
Even if its true that Malays have only 17% of the economy (which I doubt), it means that UMNO is a massive failure for failing to improve the lot of Malays after 54 years of independence. It also means that all the policies implemented by UMNO such as the NEP does not work and needs to be chucked out of the window.
Throwing UMNO out in the next GE is the only solution to the problem.

Dude...in America I can understand why the Red Indian is losing their home cause of whites controlling the political scene in the old days. But you do know that Majority Malays in the form of UMNO are the one at the top end of the food chain in Malaysia right? And still this happened? Why you don't blame Umno and keep harping on other race?
this dude should read the constitution thoroughly before commenting on it..
It is wholly irresponsible and dangerous for him, as a leader, to spread lies to the less informed, on the status of Islam, and bumiputera rights...
shouldn't the other, less irrational, mufti's condemn him publicly lest the public view the whole lot as being in the same basket?
If you are sincere and honest to protect the Malay rights and lands, please unite all the honest right mind Malays together to protect them from evil; greedy tainted UMNO from robbing them again and again! First recover back the 52 billions Bumi sahres stoeln from Malays by elite Umnoputras and then protect felda from listing by Umnoputras with hidden agenda! Allah will bless you if ONLY you are honest in what you said and do for Malays!
