October Heart

Oct’s heart.

Seeing what have happened over the last few weeks, the Bagan Pinang by-election, the campaigned, the casting, the result.
I came to respond and to reflex on what Malaysia need to move again.

Embracing each other in this multi-cultural, multi-religions pluralistic society.
Embracing differences and distinction, without denial and rejecting others.

I feel that the Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia- “One people One nation” concept may not just be an imperative but a call, A challenge or an indicative .
I do not seek for an “Utopian” society where differences, distinctiveness are totally removed or changed.
But it is a challenge for us all to help and to promote each other to make Malaysia ,a nation where acceptance of each others as ethnic origin, their culture differences, and even to people of all “classes” and also “sexes.
It is just also the consideration of “inclusiveness” and “exclusiveness”.
We must learn what, where, when, how to be color “blind” or “conscious.
Together we can and we must make Malaysia a better home for all our anak-anak and their anak-anak to come.
