The DAP-led Pakatan Harapan is pushing very hard to send the Raja-raja Melayu a message that their days are numbered and that there is a strong possibility the monarchy would be abolished in favour of a republic.
After the 2014 Constitutional Crisis regarding the post of the Selangor Menteri Besar where the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan told HRH the Sultan of Selangor that the politicians and not the Sultan decides on who should become the Menteri Besar, things are heating up again in this new round of Constitutional Crisis.
DAP’s MP for Bukit Gelugor, Ramkarpal Singh, said since Malaya was created his party has ‘jealously protected the interpretation of the Federal Constitution’, which is not possible since DAP was created in 1965 while Malaya gained independence eight years before that in 1957.
Anyway, Malaysia is not a secular country, as the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan keeps insisting and nowhere in the Constitution does it say so. What it does say in the Constitution is that Malaysia is a Constitutional Monarchy with Islam as the religion of the Federation and the Rulers as the head of Islam in their respective states.
It is not that these DAP-led Pakatan Harapan leaders do not know this. They do know but they are hoping that Malaysians do not know this so they lie and hope Malaysians are stupid enough to swallow this lie.
The DAP-led Pakatan Harapan should not be delusional into thinking that the Raja-raja Melayu are not monitoring this new challenge to the monarchy. The DAP-led Pakatan Harapan can push the rulers if they want to but it is not going to be like in the 1980s when the rulers backed down and allowed Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to get away with it.
