Today, after finished praying, I decided to surf the net for awhile and check out the latest news and events in Malaysia..
So I opened Malaysiakini....
I clicked on the most interesting issue that is published which is about the statement of the Chief of UMNO for the Bukit Mertajam district.
For those who have no idea of what I'm talking about, let me shed some light for you guys.
During the Permatang Pauh election, Datuk Ahmad Ismail, Chief of UMNO for the Bkt Bendera district gave out a statement which is said to be offensive to the Chinese during his speech for the campaign.
This has sparked anger to the Chinese community of Malaysia.
However, Datuk Ahmad Ismail defended himself saying that he was referring to the history of Malaysia and refuses to apologise to the public.
The thing that I am disappointed with is that the way some of our leaders are using race as an issue.
They give out racist comments which offends other races. Is this how leaders should act?
Are our leaders really taking the principle and belief that all races in Malaysia are part of Malaysia or are they just thinking of their own race and self importance?
We have reached our 51st years of independent.
Shouldn't we have learnt a lot from all these years about the races in Malaysia?
Can't we tolerate with each other and sit in one table to discuss our problems?
In the latest issue of the Malaysiakini that I read showed a picture of a man tearing the picture of Datuk Koh Tsu Koon, the President of the Gerakan party.
Is this how we should act after 50 years of independent?
I was totally disappointed with this.
In my opinion, it is important for us all to understand one another in order for us to live harmoniously in Malaysia. Let us hold our hands together and strive to achieve success as Malaysians and not as an individual race.
Put aside all of the negative thoughts and perception that we have on others. Rather looking at the bad things of other people, won't it be better if look for the good things of them?
We can make the difference
