Malaysia has non-leaders leading it nowadays. That is the root of the problem.
Whatever said and done, race relations and religion must be heavily policed in Malaysia. This is because it is so easy for incendiary talk to ignite misunderstanding.
This is where we are after decades of poor leadership, especially since 1981.
G25 is endemic of the current sick reality. It comprises Muslim Malaysians that hold sensible views. It is exclusive in its moderation. Read the report here.
It appears that if any such groupings have mixed ethnicity, their voice will be diluted.
Beggars cannot be choosers, I guess.
So, here I am. A non-Muslim Malaysian who finds peculiar and perplexed but positive ambivalence about being drawn to the category of "moderate". I guess it means that I am not "extreme" or "indifferent". But, who knows what the other categories are?
How the hell did we arrive here?
When did being "Malaysian" transform into the necessity of being a "Moderate Malaysian"?
It appears more so than ever that 1981 was a very bad year for Malaysia.
The only problem is that we didn't know it at the time.
