Reshaping Bangsa Malaysia
1A Bangsa Malaysia
The concept of Bangsa Malaysia still judged as vague, although flexible, and elastic concept that allows adjustment to new situations. The party-based, ethnic-based, and religious-based concepts and model of bangsa still solid that shaped and constructed the national character of the country since independence.
Value(s) and Belief(s):
Being multicultural, multiethnic, and multireligious, the country's have a strong foundation as microcosm of the world.
Proposal of Solution:
The Bangsa Malaysia should be reshaped and reconstructed into a country-based (negara-based) by taking its values and norms from different ethnic beliefs, that contain a multiculturalism concept of bangsa as a foundation that contribute to the reshaping. The policy and concept should be changed into "MALAYSIANESS", not "ETHNICNESS" based from one ethnic (the so-called majority) that is still being used today. National Commission for Malaysianess can be created to conduct countrywide programs and introduce the programs too to the different agencies of the government so the staffs would understand. Basically, take and gathered all the necessary values from different ethnicities to set up programs and modules.
