Communist ideology could destroy racial solidarity

The Cabinet's decision to reaffirm the government's earlier decision not to allow the return of Chin Peng to Malaysia was right and justify in safeguarding sensitivities.

The brutality of the communist insurgents is the main reason that causes strong opposition to any suggestion to allow former communist leader Chin Peng to return to the country.

Ironically, the communist ideology should not be allowed to be revived in the country as it could destroy racial solidarity and undermine the development achieved by the people.

The communists were cruel to the extent of creating chaos, killing people. It had caused too much damage and grievance to the people and the country where many lives were sacrificed to break the communist insurgency and to keep the country in order during that era.

Although Chin Peng was no security threat, his return would still causes the social imbalance and it would be better for Malaysia to maintain the status quos.

There are many who vehemently oppose his return. This sentiment runs strongly in the elders especially those who fought him for Malaysia's peace and independence.

The Raja Muda of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail expressed disappointment over the suggestion for the government to allow Chin Peng, the former secretary-general of the Communist Party of Malaya (CPM), to return to Malaysia.

The Raja Muda, who is commander of Regiment 504 of the Territorial Army, said allowing the former CPM leader to return would cause anxiety in the people, particularly those who had been victims of the brutality of the communists.
