Benar kata Tunku

Wahai Tunku, betapa benar katamu, betapa benar pandanganmu...

Malay Dominance and the Making of
a “Malay” Nation-State

With regard to the proposal that independence should be handed over to the “Malayans”, who are these “Malayans”? This country was received from the Malays and to the Malays it ought to be returned. What is called “Malayans”, it is not yet certain who they are; therefore let the Malays alone settle who they are.

President of UMNO on 26 August 1951
on taking over from Datuk Onn.
