Sharing The Nation

Over the decades, the previous administration did much to recognise equality between non-Muslim men and women. Now it’s time for this Pakatan Harapan government to summon the political will and courage to recognise the equality of and non-discrimination against Muslim women as a fundamental policy.
If the Pakatan Harapan government is truly committed to ‘Compassionate Islam’, it must lead in shaping a new discourse, build new champions within its own religious authorities and institutions, and build public support for the necessity and possibility for change.
EVERYDAY I wake up in this new Malaysia, thankful for the courage of Malaysians to bring about change. I am beginning to watch local TV news, discovering local hosts and learning more about the newly-elected MPs, and being most impressed by the fluency of DAP Ministers and MPs speaking in the national language.
