This article examines the legal and political developments fuelled by Malay

nationalism (Ketuanan Melayu) and demands for Islamic supremacy, which has

caused inter-ethnic distrust in Malaysia. I argue that Malay nationalism and demands for religious supremacy constitutes a betrayal of the constitutional bargain and threatens the rights of minority communities.
