GRS quits Bersatu for Sabah's best interest - Masidi

Our decision to focus on GRS by getting out of Bersatu was made in the best interest of Sabah and the greater good of Malaysia.

The increasing racial and religious rhetoric of some Peninsular based parties especially in the run up to the 15th General Election is inconsistent with the values of a multi-racial and multi-religious Sabah and Sarawak.

Many tend to forget that many Sabahans as well as Sarawakians have family members of different religious faiths.

In fact the current unity government under Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim best represents the making of an administration that embraces the interests of all Malaysians, whilst protecting the position of Islam,

Bumiputras, Sabah and Sarawak.

It’s difficult for GRS or for that matter many Sabahans, to accept what is now marketed as “political Islam”.

As a Muslim I am proud of my religion but I do not think any party can claim to be a genuine representative of this great religion.

Islam is a universal religion that is inclusive and respectful of all beliefs and cultures. It is a religion of compassion and humanity that respects the rights of others including that of minorities.

Multi ethnic and multi religious Sabahans have lived in harmony for centuries.

Inter marriages are common. We don’t identify ourselves by our ethnicity or religion.

We are are just simple Sabahans who want to protect our cultural & social heritage from being adulterated with non-Sabahan values.

We honestly think we are the best Malaysians.

GRS will support any leader or coalition who commit to the preservation of the Malaysian way of life which has a place for everyone and that is why we are wholeheartedly behind the 10th Prime Minister YAB Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Masidi Manjun

Secretary General GRS
