A former deputy governor of Bank Negara Malaysia has issued a dire warning that Malaysia faces imminent economic catastrophe as its Chinese and Indian minorities abandon the country in droves.

In a viral LinkedIn article, former central bank deputy governor Sukudhew Singh declared Malaysia a nation in turmoil, its multicultural fabric unravelling.

He foresees a dysfunctional future of inflated pensions, shrinking opportunities and religious totalitarianism.

Sukudhew, who is also former Khazanah Nasional Bhd independent director, attributes this looming dystopia to extremists alienating minorities.

Ultra-nationalists have increasingly attacked the Chinese and Indians’ loyalties despite their formidable contributions.

The Malays may rejoice at their political and religious hegemony, wrote Sukudhew, but they will inherit a bankrupt economy.

His prophecy of an all-Malay Malaysia has sparked public soul-searching about entrenched inequalities.

Can Malaysia afford to lose its most productive communities? Or is change possible before the brain drain reaches a point of no return?

Some said the social contract is broken and non-Malays said they’re made to feel like outsiders in their birth nation.

But Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s new unity government brings a glimmer of hope.

Anwar has pledged equal opportunities, genuinely acknowledged inequality and shown willingness to foster inclusivity.

Sukudhew’s polemic may yet spark reform – if leaders address racism sincerely and citizens embrace pluralism anew.

But the window for reconciliation is fast closing as Malaysia’s open wounds continue to fester.

The dystopian vision of a segregated Malaysia portrayed in local film Pendatang may prove prophetic if current trends continue.
