DAP backs couple’s ‘Anak Malaysia’ bid
KUALA LUMPUR, June 9 — The DAP pledged today to back Hannah Yeoh and Ramachandran Muniandy all the way to court in their bid to register their newborn child as an “Anak Malaysia” for her official ethnicity.
In a statement today, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said he has directed the party’s legal adviser, Gobind Singh Deo, to represent the interracial couple in court should they decide to pursue the case.
“Forcing Hannah and Ramachandran to choose either Indian or Chinese is repugnant when they just want their child to be known as Malaysian,” Lim said.
“By deliberately forcing us into ethnic boxes BN is not celebrating diversity nor creating a common Malaysian identity, but opportunistically playing divide-and-rule politics,” the Penang chief minister added, criticising the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition.
Subang Jaya state lawmaker Yeoh, 32, and her husband had sparked controversy earlier this week after tweeting their failure to win approval from the National Registration Department (NRD) to register their daughter as “Anak Malaysia” under the category for race.
The NRD issued a statement yesterday explaining it was unable to process the duo’s unorthodox request as policy determined the child’s race follow the parents; leaving Yeoh and Ramachandran two options — Chinese or Indian.
The couple subsequently chose to register their firstborn as Chinese, but said they would appeal to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak refer here


Women actually carried the baby for 9 months with the thought of registering the kid as "Anak Malaysia"

And why the choice of "Chinese" instead of "Indian"?


Let us now go to the Tiny Little Dot down south......

Greater Flexibility With Implementation Of Double-Barrelled Race Option From 1 January 2011

With effect from 1 January 2011, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) will implement the registration of double-barrelled race options for Singaporean children born to parents of different races.

2. This change, first announced in Parliament on 12 January 2010, gives parents who are of different races further flexibility and choice to decide how their child’s race should be recorded. Couples of inter-ethnic marriages now have the additional option to reflect both their races for their child as a double-barrelled race. This is on top of the existing options of choosing only one of the two different races – either that of the father or the mother – for their child. For example, if one parent is “Chinese” and the other is “Indian”, the child’s race may be recorded as “Chinese”, “Indian”, “Chinese-Indian”, or “Indian-Chinese”. The registration of the double-barrelled race will be limited to only two components, i.e. one hyphenation.

3. For relevant Government policies, such as the initial assignment to a mother-tongue language class in schools and the HDB’s Ethnic Integration Policy, the first component of a double-barrelled race will be used. There will not be any advantage in terms of policy considerations for those who register either a double-barrelled or a singular race. For the presentation of statistics, the current way of presenting the published race statistics will be maintained and will be based on the first component of the double-barrelled race.

4. Details on the policy and registration procedures can be found on ICA’s website at

5. This added flexibility of registering a double-barrelled race is in line with the Government’s continual review of its policies in recognition of evolving societal changes. In this instance, we recognise that with the increasing number of inter-ethnic marriages in Singapore; the diversity of Singapore’s racial demographics has accordingly also increased. More here

So will our 1Malaysian Government consider the option of double-barrelled race registration?

Would everyone after this need to re-register our ethnicity...

If so...mine would be quite berjela-jela nak kena ada 4 hyphen...mak bapak gua tak kecoh pun dulu...

Anyway folks.....can Malaysia be considered as a valid ethnic or racial category?

Merapu la all these politicians......makin lama makin kelam kabuts....dah takde modal ke sampai nak jaje anak buat modal politik?
