Sabah Umno out to woo non-Muslim bumiputras

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Umno is setting up a special taskforce to attract more non-Muslim bumiputras from the state’s ethnic communities such as the Kadazandusuns and Muruts.

Penampang Umno chief Datuk John Ambrose, the party’s first non-Muslim division chairman, said the move was aimed at strengthening Umno in the state.

Opening the Penampang Umno meeting at Kampung Limbanak here on Monday, he said both party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had given the green light for setting up the taskforce.

“Sabah Umno is open to all races as the party fights for the rights of all bumiputras in the state. If Umno in Sabah is just serving one community, what would happen to the others?” he said.

John said Najib was scheduled to launch the taskforce in the remote interior district of Pensiangan soon.

He said Pensiangan was among eight of Sabah Umno’s 25 divisions where there were large numbers of non-Muslim bumiputras. The others were Penampang, Tenom, Papar, Kota Belud, Keningau, Kota Marudu and Kudat.

John said the primary objective of the taskforce would be to create awareness among non-Muslim bumiputras that Umno was open to them and that the party’s struggles was not merely for any particular community.

Lulu,

You need to be fair and objective. I have no problem if you bang BN if they do something wrong. But what about DAP reps?? Look at Ronnie Liu for example. He used up his entire allocation for this year in June. I am from Klang and I can tell you something is fishy with Ronnie Liu.

PAS pun dah lama buka sub-ahli kpd non-Muslim.....so basically UMNO is copycat-ing apa yg PAS buat je.

Sama juga bila PAS introduce Serikandi to copycat Puteri UMNO.

Yes, non-Malays can be bumiputras. You're forgetting about the Orang Asli, Kadazans, Dayaks, Orang Ulus, etc.

Bumiputras can even be *gasp* non-Muslims! Just ask any native bumiputra of Sarawak and Sabah, majority of whom are Christians.
