Hisham: Kungfu, keris semua pun BOLEH

I wonder if in US, what will Hishammuddin use? A handgun?.

Well, I dont see any leaders in China waving "pedang kungfu" in their political general assembly.

Inilah, Malaysia BOLEH!.

Excerpt from MalaysiaKini

Umno Youth chief Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said he has no problems if a pedang kung fu (Chinese martial arts sword) is used to symbolise a cause on the part of any Chinese component party, when quizzed by reporters at a press conference at the MCA youth general meeting today.

Hishamuddin, who raised controversy with his ketuanan melayu (Malay supremacy) statements, did a double take, and explained away the meaning behind last week’s function where Penang CM and Gerakan deputy president Dr Koh Tsu Koon raised a large mock keris together with the Umno youth chief.

“Using the keris as a symbol is not a problem. Even Koh himself used the keris. This is an obselete concept of the younger generation, that a object such as the keris would belong to a particular group,” Hishamuddin told reporters.

“Even if a pedang kung fu was used, this would not pose a problem to us,” he said, adding that the real issues are the issues raised by the youth chief, which are issues that are close to the hearts of the Tiong Hua (Chinese).

Hishamuddin said the use of keris is not a problem and that in fact it’s not the sole right for the Malays to use it.

In the 2005 Umno general assembly, Hishamuddin had brandished the keris while calling for the restoration of the NEP as part of the National Development Policy (NDP). It was then implied that the keris symbolised the role of Umno Youth in championing the Malay race.

His deputy, Khairy Jamaluddin then also mooted the revival the New National Agenda (NNA), a revision of sorts for the of the NEP.
