Chinese Muslims say not asking for Bumiputera status

华裔穆斯林称不要求马来土著地位



KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 7 ― The local Chinese Muslim community said it is not seeking Bumiputera status as it wants genuine Muslim believers.

吉隆坡,8月7号——马来西亚当地穆斯林社区称不寻求土著人地位,因为它想要真正的穆斯林信徒。

Malaysian Chinese Muslim Association (Macma) president Prof Taufiq Yap Yun Hin said the Bumiputera status was not a necessity for local Muslims who were of Chinese ethnicity.

马来西亚华裔穆斯林社区(Macma)会长Yap Yun Hin 说土著地位对于当地的华裔穆斯林来说不是必须的。

“We don't request for (Bumiputera status); we want Chinese Muslims to sincerely believe in Islam, and not because of the Bumiputera status,” he was quoted saying in a report by local daily Sin Chew Daily.

“我们不要求(土著地位),我们想要华裔穆斯林真诚信仰伊斯兰教,而不是因为土著地位(有利可图*指为融入当地,避免被排斥而信奉伊斯兰教*)。”当地报纸《星洲日报》引用他的话说。

Yap reportedly said Macma would not ask the federal government to grant Bumiputera status for the local Chinese Muslims, but said he believed the community would gladly accept if the government felt the need to do so.

据报道,Yap称Macma 不会向联邦政府要求授予当地华裔穆斯林土著地位,但他说他相信如果政府觉得有必要这么做,社区将很乐意接受。

Yap was responding to questions on the prime minister recently saying that he accepted that the local Indian Muslim community was like the Bumiputera.

Yap 是在回应总理最近称“接受本地印度裔穆斯林社区等同于马来土著”的言论所引发的问题。

Yap, who was speaking at Macma's 23rd annual general meeting on Saturday night, said Chinese Muslims had the responsibility of showing what true Islam was so that the Chinese community would know about the religion.

Yap 在周六晚举办的Macma 第23届年度全体大会上发言,称华裔穆斯林有责任展示真正的伊斯兰教,好让华裔社区了解这种宗教。

He said Chinese Muslims could better understand Malaysia's diversity as they intermarried with Malays, Indians or the indigenous community and had a multicultural background.

他说华裔穆斯林可以更好地理解马来西亚的多样性,因为他们与马来人、印度人、或本地社区通婚,拥有多文化背景。

On July 18, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak responded to the Federation of Malaysian Indian Muslim Associations' demand for the Indian Muslim community to be gazetted as Bumiputera, saying that the government would have an in-depth study of this request.

马来西亚印度穆斯林协会联合会,要求政府宣布印度裔穆斯林社区为马来土著,7月18号马来西亚总理纳吉布在回应称政府会深入研究这个请求。
