Malay is important but english is also important mah!

If u want........malay to be more important...........malay language study should merge with Bahasa Indonesia...........meaning u learn Bahasa Indonesia instead of Bahasa Melayu.....like this at least u get 400 million users compare with current about 40 million users mah!

Well, i have to correct a history even myself got wrong! You see, when the dutch colonized Indonesia, the dutch didn't want to teach dutch to indonesians! Instead they opted for bahasa melayu as ligua frace for Indonesia! So schools in Indonesia taught bahasa as medium instead of dutch! And yes, apparently i got it wrong! Bahasa was borrowed from Malaya! And actually malays do exist in Indonesia! But why didn't dutch use java as medium of teaching in Indonesia! Indonesia is one complex mixture of so many ethnics! And the dutch believe, bahasa was the right medium to use!
Now, this backstory has a reason! The British opted to use English as medium of instruction prior to Merdeka!
It was our dear well loved PMX Anwar who was education minister who change English to bahasa!
One can say, Anwar finally shown his true colour in many things! A fake reformist no doubt!
But to use English as correspondence to government officials should only apply to foreign investors! I think by now we should use bahasa as sole medium as our interaction with government is mostly SOP!
And it's a shame that there are still segment of malaysians who can't speak bahasa! We can see how local journalists have to converse in english with so called M40 or T20 as if they are from different planet! Look, you dont' see this in Thailand, Indonesia, Japan or China! Everybody speaks the national language!
So this is something as malaysians we need to be aware of! Unable to speak bahasa and yet claim we are the most malaysian is just as phony as our PMX Anwar!
English should be reserved for seeking knowledge in science and tech, and of course when dealing with foreign investors!
But beyond that, we must take pride converse in bahasa! Or else we are so unmalaysian!

Actually some msian cannot confidently use bahasa melayu....bcos they took out...private english, chinese, tamil & arab medium school loh!

As for Bahasa Indonesia....it is actually malay.....but their malay is slightly different from msian malays language loh.... but still msian can easily master it loh!

Coming back....to malay language....it is easy to learn loh....the bangladesh, vietnamese, cambodian, mynmar and nepal can learn speak the language eloquently just within 3 to 6 mths loh!

Why Msia feel threaten that u would lose language leh ?

No way loh..........they are more than 400 million people use malays.........no way u will lose the language loh!

But the msian malay language....only 32 million users.....limited use loh!

As i say b4, it is better for msian malay language to be integrated with bahasa Indonesia.....(which a malay language} that have much more users loh!

"Return to Sender” – this is the directive to government departments if they receive official letters in languages other than Bahasa Malaysia.
What if a letter from Elon Musk was wrongly treated as letter from a local company?
Do we think every civil servants will scrutinise every letter carefully whether it is from local or abroad?
