Isma today took to task “ungrateful citizens” have who never considered nor appreciated how our country is enjoying peace and stability.
According to Isma deputy president Aminuddin Yahaya, these ungrateful Malaysians are daily inciting the public, especially the non-Malays, to think that they are being marginalized and discriminated.

The liberals have hijacked the term ‘moderate’
Aminuddin names the NGO coalitions Comango, Inter Faith Council (IFC) and their ilk as being responsible for creating “dissatisfaction among the rakyat”.
In his column on Ismaweb, he describes the groups mentioned as rejecting:
- the Federal Constitution
- Islam as the religion of the federation
- the ‘special position’ of the Malays
- the monarchy system
- our hundreds of years of history
- bahasa Melayu as our national language
Instead of accepting the above elements as the pillars of our nation-building, Aminuddin claims that the said groups are instead promoting ‘liberalism’ which they have re-termed as ‘moderation’.
You don’t agree with them, then you’re an extremist!
“Yes, moderates, moderates and moderates,” said Aminuddin.
“Not only have they promoted the word, they have even defined it according to their liking.”
“Anyone who may have [a] different opinion will be labelled as extremist. As simple as that,” he added.
EvangeliSTAR promoting its version of ‘moderation’ in the campuses
Aminuddin pointed out that various seminars, talks and conventions have been held to promote their so-called ‘moderate’ ideas.
Among them is the promotion specially targeted at young and impressionable minds where the J-Star ‘Voices of Moderation’ programmes are taken into college campuses. This youth campaign is co-sponsored by the prime minister’s pet NGO, Global Movement of Moderates headed by Malaysian Firster Saifuddin Abdullah – see announcement above.
The Isma deputy president also highlighted how one local English newspaper went overboard by every day advertising its columnists as figures of moderation even though most of these manufactured personalities “have already been rejected by their own races”.
Note by this blogger:
Last Thursday (Sept 4), Najib Razak launched a ‘national unity’ forum themed “Strengthening the Voices of Moderates, Moving Forward Together” co-organised by Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute and the Centre for Public Policy Studies together with The J-Star as the event’s media partner. Speaking at the forum were J-Star columnists Azmi Sharom, Zainah Anwar and Sharyn Shufiyan, all of whom feature in the MCA paper’s Voices of Moderation advertisement (poster above).
Nauzubillah min zalik
Aminuddin believes that the groups who have challenged certain aspects of the Federal Constitution are negating the social contract that has served our country well for more than 50 years.
He is convinced that if these groups were ever to be given the chance to govern Malaysia, they would take us “back to the Dark Ages. May Allah forbid”.
