Malaysia, a Multi racial country? Racial & Religion issue has always been a barrier of having complete peace and unity. For the past 50 years,the ruling Government under BN has successfully kept the peace of the country by power sharing with others, MCA, MIC, Gerakan and other enthic groups,but to many this agreement is of the past, as the nation develops, population increases and the demands of the rakyat for rights of being one , MALAYSIAN!
Leaders of the component parties in BN has been criticised for not standing up for their respective race, as seen in the last general Election, the BN suffered a humiliating defeat to the opposition.Measures should be taken to curb further racial remarks and sentiments by the BN leaders particularly UMNO.Many has in fact criticised the Malay race,but then again, the leaders are responsible for the state of the Malays today.
As law abiding citizens, we should not further aggravate the situation than it is now. We can only change this through our rights to vote, and that time will come,until then we should still maintain and respect each other.
