Sample text

Looks at the core issues causing tensions between the federal government and Sabah and Sarawak. He argues that the issues can be summarised into five key areas: (a) The ‘20 points’; (b) Sabah and Sarawak’s status in the Federation; (c) manufactured consent towards the formation of Malaysia; (d) Federal intervention in state politics in Sarawak and Sabah; and (e) Ketuanan Melayu and Ketuanan Islam He finds that Sabah and Sarawak suffer under-development; that Borneonisation has been replaced with Malayanisation; that the indigenous people are treated as second-class bumiputera; that resources are exploited for the benefit of Muslim bumiputera; and that there is discrimination against non-Muslim bumiputera.
