KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 13 — Right wing non-governmental organisation Perkasa today suggested that a royal commission be set up to monitor Bumiputera participation in the economy.
Its president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said this was necessary to ensure that the target of 30 per cent equity ownership by Bumiputeras was attained by the time Malaysia achieve developed nation status in 2020.
“The Commission must be responsible for updating the Malays rulers on the economic progress of Bumiputeras in the country,” he told reporters at Parliament’s lobby today.
The independent MP for Pasir Mas returned to Parliament today after being on medical leave since October 18 following bypass surgery at a private hospital here.

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 13 — Perkasa demanded today that the Najib administration build a special museum to commemorate the bloody racial riots which occurred on May 13, 1969, saying that such a move was necessary to educate the young on how the riots actually started.
Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said that there should be nothing wrong with building a museum for this purpose, claiming that it was “strange” that such an idea had never been suggested to the government before.
“Perkasa suggests that the Ministry for Information, Communications and Culture look into this. A museum for May 13 should be built, and this should be looked at positively. Look at Germany, for instance, they have got a museum which highlights the evils of Hitler. This is needed to educate the young people of this country,” he said today.
The outspoken Pasir Mas MP stressed that the tragedy and deaths that happened on May 13 should not be forgotten, as well as the parties who had allegedly “started” the riots.
“We have to let them know who started the riots. Who were the ones who burned the Malaysian flag on May 10? These are facts which the young ones need to know, it’s crucial,” he insisted.
The Perkasa chief also said a museum for “Malay warriors and Malay Sultans” should be built to recognise their contributions to the county.
“Perkasa will also be sending a memorandum to the Conference of Rulers… all the agendas that been mooted … the New Economic Model (NEM), Budget 2011, we want to make sure that by 2020, the Bumiputera agenda is realised,” said Ibrahim, stressing that Perkasa wants an assurance that Bumiputeras and Malays will be given a 30 percent cut of the country’s economic pie by 2020.
“We want a royal commission or at least a steering committee be formed to ensure that this goal is achieved,” he added.
