PM’s aide to resign over alleged racist remarks (Update)

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Nasir Safar, special officer to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, will resign over allegedly racist statements he made, the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement Tuesday.

“The remarks allegedly made by Nasir in Malacca today do not in any way reflect the views of the Prime Minister,” the statement said.

“Nasir never intended to make any derogatory remarks. He spoke at length on the contributions made by all races in developing the country.

“Nevertheless, Nasir apologises for any offence caused … and in light of this, will tender his resignation.”

Online portals earlier reported that Nasir’s remarks at a 1Malaysia seminar at the Malacca International Trade Centre were so offensive that MIC and MCA members in attendance walked out in protest.

He was reported to have said that Chinese and Indian Malaysians were mere “pendatangs” (immigrants) and that Chinese women came to Malaysia to indulge in the “flesh trade.”

Nasir first denied the reports, saying he was just talking about the country’s history.

“I did not say the word ‘pendatang.’ I only said the country has been successful as the Chinese and the Indians from those days until today have been coming here to work,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

He also dismissed claims that he had threatened to revoke the citizenships of non-Malays who demanded that their rights be respected, the portal reported.

MIC and MCA leaders had threatened to lodge police reports over the incident.

Okay, good for a start, but what about all these other guys???

    “What Nasir Safar did was to articulate what is in the hearts and minds of racist Umno and its leaders.”

    “Indians came to Malaysia as beggars and Chinese especially the women came to sell their bodies”

    “Indians in Malaysia have crossed the line. They force the government for 12 subjects in SPM. Don’t force the government. We can anytime revoke the citizenship of the Indians in Malaysia.”

    The above statements were allegedly said by Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak’s aide Nasir Safar at a 1 Malaysia seminar titled ‘Rapat 1Malaysia’ in Malacca International Trade Centre.
