Bahasa Malaysia "unconstitutional", say Kelab Umno alumni. The Umno Overseas Clubs Alumni has asked the Government to revert to using the term "Bahasa Melayu" for the national language. It said the term "Bahasa Malaysia" does not exist in the Federal Constitution.
And that this is something that cannot be changed just because the Cabinet says so.
A resolution to ask the Abdullah Administration to use B. Melayu and not B. Malaysia was passed at the Third Malay Agenda seminar on Sunday, it was reported here.
In my previous posting on this ("The Bahasa Melayu is dead! Long live Bahasa Melayu!" - 4 June 2007), I marveled at the many times we have switched between the two "languages".
After 50 years of Merdeka, many Malaysian cannot or do not speak and write Bahasa. I don't even know the difference between Bahasa Malaysia and Bahasa Melayu. Do you?
Maybe we should have more than one national language!
