New history or distorted history syllabus?

Judging from UMNO racial record in writing Malaysia history, I believe the new history syllabus will be another controversy.

I quote a few new historical facts as believed by UMNO.

– Bersih is not Bersih.

– UMNO alone was fighting independence from the British.

– MPAJA is anti-Malay military organization.

– Pre-independence Malay left-wing politicians are pro-communist.

– Hang Tuah is a Malay hero.

– Hang Li Po is a Ming princess.

– Melaka sultanate existed for 700 year. [Current version is 600 year]

– Parameswara is a Muslim.

– 1 million old skeleton found in Lenggong is Malay ancestor.

– Baba Nyoyna is old pendatang.

– Chinese and Indian are new pendatang.
