Reflecting On The Law
- Go to
ON Saturday, The Star reported that the Higher Education Ministry has drawn up guidelines for entertainment activities including concerts at higher educational institutions. However, due to some backlash, the ministry is graciously reviewing these guidelines (“Relook at concerts in universities”; online at bit.ly/star_relook).
THE allegation is spreading that it is against the grain of the Constitution to describe Malaysia as a multiethnic, multireligious and multilinguistic nation. Proponents of this view rely on the fact that nowhere in the text of our document of destiny is there any explicit usage of words like multiracial or multicultural Malaysia.
