But will remember MGF- Dtk Zainudin Maidin's word today
“The Malays, for example, must not see Bahasa Malaysia as a language used (solely) by themselves. If Malays truly want to promote the language regionally or globally, they should not be worried if others use it for religious reasons such as their books and sermons.
Perhaps should un-ban the Kitab Injil?
Oh ya, something fishy about Allantunya's murder investigation. There is now a new 'persecution' team onboard and not much prosecution evidences have been given to the defense lawyers. Sounds funny to me. Hope that for once, we get credible/ competent/ dedicated officers who can nail down the case. Been too long since the government has won a high profile case. Except Lina Joy's case, which is not unexpected. The judges maybe pressured by the potential rioters out of the court. Hurrah to Malaysian rule of Law!!
