Sabah Heading for Separation???
16 September 1963 was the historical day for Malaysian since Federation of Malaysia was ink officially. The idea to form Federation of Malaysia didn’t go down well to our neighbour’s. Since then Indonesia and Philippines registered their dissenting opinion.
Indonesia lead by then premier Jeneral Sukarno launched military attacks under “Ganyang Malaysia” slogan while Philippines was said has train a group of military man with guerila tactics to create havoc in Sabah. While both states has their point of arguments but the fact was, Sabahan’s and Sarawakian was given an opportunity to decide whether to join the Federation of Malaysia or otherwise. The majority decided to enter the federation which was the brainchild of The Late Tunku Abdul Rahman, first Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Past few years I’m hearing many dissenting voice to the extent some state leader (either from the leaders who run government or from opponents) has publicly said “Sabahan’s made a mistake by joining the Federation of Malaysia.” Federal government which is dominated by peninsular Malaysian and lack of solution to the state issues has mooted for the disatisfaction. The statement which is against the Federation of Malaysia is very negative while I don’t deny, immediate remedy needed to overcome the state issues.
Lately former Suhakam Vice-Chairperson Simon Sipaun said, “Sabah made a mistake in joining the Federation of Malaysia in 1963.” I read the sentence as a threat to Federation of Malaysia and Sabah is heading for separation. Any failure to overcome the state issue will provoked the Sabahans to seek for separation from Federation of Malaysia. Fast remedy needed rather than political gimmick.
