The beginning

This is from the article, Tun Razak’s legacy – his vision, in The Star Online by Karim Raslan about "an apocryphal story from the 1960s".

Basically, the story runs like this: At the time of Separation – Singapore’s departure from the federation in 1965 – Tun Abdul Razak Hussein realised that Umno needed more young leaders in the party.

Great visionary: Razak had the foresight to enrol the brightest young Malays.
Faced with, amongst other things Lee Kuan Yew’s considerable rhetorical skills, Razak wanted young Malay leaders – grounded in their own faith and culture – who would be able to speak and if necessary debate both in Malay and English.
