Independence of Sabah and Sarawak from Malaysia

I first asked this question to my former history school teacher back then. Since Sarawak and Sabah are being ill treated and had to bow down to peninsular's claim all the time, why not we fight for our own independence.

The latest Allah issue really strike me most compared to other issues that Sarawakian had to be subjugated to colonialization by Malaya. Peninsular Malaysia claims that Islam is the religion of the federation. Yes we respect and acknowledge that even with due respect that Sarawak and Sabah are Christian majority states. In Sarawak, Malay Muslim accounts to about one fifth of the population. More than two third are Christians and the rest Buddhist. So can you imagine how much Christians have to give up by becoming part of an Islamic country that follows Islamic rule even though Muslim is not majority in our states.

Since majority rules apply. Sarawak and Sabah do not have to follow Islamic rule at all. And syariah laws cannot be enforced on us instead Christian law should be enforced. We have given up fight against applying Islamic law or not. Now the federal government is trying to even take away our rights to call our God, Allah. Peninsular Malaysia have taken away all our resources like Petroleum, timber (forest), and even hydro electric dam(Bakun). And the native tribes who are the real owner of the land (not Malay people) do not even own their own land. Instead they are being chased out as illegal squatters in the jungle. How much more can we endure under such colonization?

Its time for Sarawakian and Sabahan to unite and fight for indepence from Malaysia. Its is now or never. Today we can't call our God Allah, tomorrow what? Christ Jesus is outlawed in Malaysia?
