Bainimarama’s anti-Fijian policies driven by Khaiyum’s genocidal 'sunset clause' thesis on how to destroy Fijian cultural autonomy.
Many proud and self-respecting i-taukei Fijians have been asking Coupfourpointfive whether we have the interim Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s thesis, where he advocates the destruction of the very fabric of Fijian institutions, now being implemented by dictator Frank Bainimarama and his predominantly i-taukei Fijian members of the Military Council.
Yes, we do, and here we publish a few excerpts. In his conclusion, Khaiyum writes as follows:
“As seen from the Fijian experience, cultural autonomy has a place within a nation-state to provide protection to a group at a particular point in time or for a period of time….To maintain one’s self-worth culture needs to be dynamic and vibrant. Capturing it in institutions makes culture parochial, irrelevant, prone to manipulation and servesonly the interest of a few….As seen from the Fijian experience the continuation of separate indigenous Fijian administration has restricted the growth of a coherent national narrative, in politics, myth or ritual...”
In his conclusion, Aiyaz proposed the following, akin to Adolf Hitler’s Final Solution: “Therefore cultural autonomy must have a sunset clause. Its prolonged continuation will place a stranglehold on the very members it seeks to protect and it will concomitantly disallow the critical cultural space in which a just, vibrant and coherent nation-state can flourish while embracing diversity.”According to highly reliable military sources shortly before the coup, Khaiyum went up to Berkley Crescent with his own version of Mein Kampf.
The dictator, hungry for power, and inebriated from free alcohol from the Officers Mess, thought it a great idea, and appointed Aiyaz as his new A-G to implement his anti-Fijian laws. He was to be assisted by a Kiwi, Christopher Pryde, the new illegal Solicitor-General in the genocidal crime against the i-taukei, and more specifically, against the Great Council of Chiefs which had stood in Frank's way after the 2006 coup.Click to read Sayed-Khaiyum's full thesis
