We present the nature of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity which is deeply rooted in the German language and values. Similarly, the earlier critics of the theory, Whitehead and Iqbal are shown to be deeply rooted by their respective mother tounges and value systems: the English language and Anglo-Christian values, and the Urdu language and the Indo-Islamic values. Then we prove that the concept of time base on Malay etimology can be used to constructively criticize the Relativity Theory, hence to establish a new potential source of improvement of the Western Relativity Theory. With this finding, it is hoped that the theory would not only become more acceptable by the Malays, but can also hopefully become an alternative to the current Relativity Theory
