Racial and Religious Eternal Quagmire in Malaysia.

To those of us who are Malaysians and are able to figure out that the racial and religious problems amongst us will remain a quagmire eternally here in this land, the best thing to do is to learn the do's and don'ts of the various religions, faiths and cultures here.

After learning the basics of all the various faiths and cultures here in our country, the best thing to do then would be to live and let live our fellow Malaysians and accord to each their own free space to live out their lives and accord to each other a sense of respect and practice tolerance.

Each community here ought to keep within their space and never infringe upon the rights or customs of the other.

As long as the other community or faith minds their own business and goes about their affairs without infringing on the lives of others, peace and harmony will come to be present in our life's and we can all focus on improving the quality of our own economies, finances and create opportunities for our mutual benefits.

If we fail to do that and we keep on going after each other by attacking them or their religion, where is this going to lead us all?

Anarchy, religious strife, murder and mayhem!

Is that what we need or crave for?

Is there any sense of rationality left in us who are Malaysians?

Why is our country still in deep shit spiritually and religiously when we have all avenues of learning about each other right before our very eyes?

Are we not capable of exorcising our demons from our hearts and return to the sense of camaraderie that once prevailed in the times of our forefathers?

When one hurts another and starts to insult his or her faith, what is going to stop a tit for tat response from those who have been hurt or offended?

When will all this end?

When everyone has been hurt, injured, bashed and bloodied to death?

Will that appease all these irresponsible people who are now rampaging all over the cyberspace as if they are going to live forever and not be held accountable for their online crimes and distortions of the truth?

I see the present Government of Malaysia not doing what they should be doing which is to enforce all the current laws and regulations which were enacted to keep these emerging racial and religious strife's nipped right in the bud before they grow out of control and out of hand!

Even those who pride themselves as the Sovereign Keepers of the Islamic Faith @ the Malay Royals fail to take action against those who have attacked and insulted Islam so viciously despite police reports having been lodged against the offenders.

Racial and religious strife amongst Malaysians looks set to remain an eternal quagmire here in Malaysia despite all the official pretexts and pretensions taking place before us.

'Ketuanan Melayu and Ketuanan Islam' are just a mirage which seem to disappear when 'push comes to shove!'.

The Executive and the Monarchy are just coming to be proven to be nothing but self interested parties who just enrich themselves and do not really bother about seeing to it that justice is served and seen to be implemented in this going crazy nation of ours.

Those who appreciate and value peace and harmony best watch out for your own safety and well being for the ones claiming to be in authority are just not interested to live up to their oaths of office.

We have no one to turn to except Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in the real sense.

Those whom we thought might be able to look after and care for us are fast turning out to be nothing but fly by night operators who are just bothered to keep themselves well fed, pampered and adulated day and night without even an iota of consideration for the citizens of this nation whose life's, honor and wellbeing is of no concern to their VVIP self's.

To me, I really do not give a damn about all the honorifics and self glorifying pompous selfish ones who pretend to be our authorities and rulers.

They are just human beings like the rest of us. When Death comes a calling, it differs not between the titled and the simple folks like us.

All I can advise you, my fellow Malaysian reading this is to watch out and fend for yourselves.

Do not fall victim to the designations and manipulations of the ones who love to create social, religious and racial strife amongst us to appease their demons within them and to take care of your beloved ones.

'Cari makan!' and don't 'Cari pasal!'

I believe that if we work towards making our lives more meaningful by focusing our resources and energies towards earning our keep by getting involved in entrepreneurial efforts and enterprises, our future will be much more better than the current religious bashing's taking place here online and in our nation's political scene.

Will you disagree? I am sure that the rational and decent ones amongst us will be of the same thought as me.

Let's get our priorities right and work towards earning ourselves a better keep and improving the quality of our lifestyles than descend into unnecessary strife, religious and racial discord amongst us!

Work towards mutual success and a peaceful co-existence amongst us Malaysians.

May you all be safe.


Ameen.
