Wither the myth of a secular nation

JUNE 12 — One need not be a political scientist to note that more often than not the polemic on the alleged secular nature of the Federal Constitution, and by virtue of which, the supposed secular status of Malaysia as a nation, are tainted by political prejudices.

Rohingya: Victims of False Borders

There was a time in recent history that the USA became a haven of hope for many downtrodden minorities of European kingdoms. When these immigrants sacrificed and struggled to arrive in the USA, they adopted the “melting pot” approach to culture. It did not matter where you came from, because “all men are created equal”.

Christian-Muslim axis of conflict

Many opposition supporters in their comments online are still not acknowledging that the act of stomping on the prime minister’s photo on the eve of National Day iskurang ajar.

MalaysianInsider Medan Penghasut dan Pelampau Agama

Pelampau-pelampau agama naik tocang apabila Malaysianinsider memberi ruang dan menjadi medan untuk puak-puak ini mengeluarkan kata-kata hasutan akhir-akhir ini. Laporan menyimpang dan memburukkan Seminar Kalimah Allah dan Kristologi Nusantara di UiTM minggu lepas beserta dengan ulasan-ulasan untuk beberapa hari selepas itu jelas menunjuk mereka mempunyai agenda untuk menganyangkan Islam dan dakwah Islamiyyah...

Semua kaum saling menghormati. Hidup aman damai, tenteram dan harmoni. Namun masa telah berlalu. Kini suasana semakin haru. DAP pula semakin berani. Menuntut hak kebebasan sejati.  Penghapusan hak bumiputera antara agenda....
