I always think that Christmas is a time for holidays with the family, but this year my festive mood is spoilt a bit by Reverend Eu who was reported to have commented on the Article 153 of the Perlembagaan, read here. I am not interested to speculate why the good Reverend would home in on Article 153 during Christmas eve, maybe his intentions are "good". Instead of stirring the hornets nest, he ought to take example on how to give a X'mas Message from Pope Benedict XVI without being accused of trying to play politics:
|Read in full what the Pope's Christmas Message were.|
Of course the Reverend's statement will draw a response:
here from a blog I like to visit:
Article 153 also says:
Maybe the good Reverend ought to read and understand the History of the formation of Malaysia and the whole of the Perlembagaan first and then Article 153 for good measure before he says something which is obviously political in nature and affects the sensitivity of the various races in Malaysia and does the Reverend know that a majority of the Christians in Malaysia are made up of our brother Bumiputras in Sabah and Sarawak?
Nobody is bullying anybody in Malaysia lah Reverend. But for sure definitely there will parties who will give you a strong response to what you have to say, read here too. Malaysia is a working democracy you know, the right to say something also goes with the right to give a verbal response in kind.
I think its not easy being the Government of a multiracial and multi religious country the only one of its kind in the world. You just can't please everybody can you?
