Reject Any Ideology That Uses Racism To Promote National Unity. Does That Include The Government?
Three organizations have called for the rejection of any ideology that uses racism to promote national unity.
The Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS), Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli) and the National Young Lawyers Committee of the Bar Council Malaysia also called for sharing of common values in society regardless of race and religion to enhance inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations.The ideas and suggestions by these optimistic folks should be appreciated and applauded. There should be no room for racists especially the rabid variety claiming to practice it "all for the sake of national unity". And where pray tell are these ardent practitioners of racism for the 'ultimate fostering' of national unity to be found? In the government, or rather the premier political party which forms the government, namely Umno. These are the true anti-muhibbah elements masquerading as leaders for all the people while shamelessly practicing an extreme form of racism.
Those from the three organizations above know fully well who is responsible for the great divide which has split our citizens and led to the polarization of our communities and marginalization of some. But how do we even start to reconcile and attempt to reverse the process of racism if it has been institutionalized and the main culprit is the government? Tall order my friends. Merely talking about it could earn you the wrath of the racists in power. Actually doing something may get you a place in one of the high security abodes where the other 'pengkhianat2' are compelled to live.
