Sabar, jangan mengamok.

How embarrassing.

Nazri's threat to non-Muslims in our country to shut up on issues concerning Muslims and Malay rights has travelled far and wide, an example of it is in this news report in the South China Morning Post here.

Why do some Muslims in this country constantly feel that other communities are belittling them whenever the subject of their religion is being discussed? Are they suffering from paranoid disorder?

Is it such an untouchable subject? We can't even be permitted to ask some questions so that we can be enlightened about certain issues which troubled us because we are deemed ignorant?

Other communities have experienced their fair share of insulting remarks made against their religions and cultural practises and the type of food they are permitted to consume. Has anyone taken to the streets to protest against the insults?

But of course, our rights are deemed less important and therefore for the minorities, there is no need to be so damn sensitive about it. If you are not happy, you can leave. Good riddance.

From The Star: “But you must remember the word amok comes from this country and there is a limit to everything.”

There are limits for some people but at the same time, there is also no limit to the level of tolerance and acceptance expected of others. Obviously, different strokes for different folks.

The amazing thing is, some people feel the need to constantly renew their threats to mostly peace-loving and law-abiding non-Muslim citizens. It feels like you are being reminded to shut up if you know what's good for you. All the time.

Is this how they promote unity in this blessed country? By cowing others into total submission?

Malay = Amok ?? Certainly not, my friends.

How sad.

Only those who cannot fend for themselves, those weak, those lazy and those that are parasitious but have the numbers would threathen the minority.

In UK, US and Europe, the parliament are debating about how to improve the minorities and how to provide them with legal and social securities and natural justice.

Here, the politicians are contrarians and dim-wits.

So the call for national unity is a sham?

Awesome, awesome. Just came across your blog, they resonate with my thinking. The way those ministers speak their mind and carry themselves, are no different from a street thug. Sometimes I feel so sad that Malaysia government is stuffed by these pathetic people.
