12 CHINESE WON NOBEL PRIZES BUT MUSLIMS ONLY HAVE TWO

Yesterday, I attended a keynote speech by Iranian Professor, Prof. Mesmariani. In fact I was the MC for the seminar. The speech was inspiring as he called for the academia in Muslim countries to unite. He mentioned that whilst 12 Chinese have won the Noble Prizes, only two Muslims ever won it, Prof Abdus Salam and Prof Ahmed Zewail (we're not talking about peace or literature prizes). Before you guys make any conclusions, I like to inform that I do know Prof Salam was a devout Ahmadi Muslim. Also, please do not see me as being racist when I quoted the 12 Chinese, in fact, this only shows how great they are as a race.

1) Malay should learn from Chinese on how they can survive and success in this wonderful country, Malaysia.
2) Malay should realise, no other can remain Malay as 'Tuan di tanah sendiri' unless Malay is equipped with knowledge, and the most important... 'unity'.
3) Good articel Dr, and keep it up.
