We all stand together

Even with all the signs pointing to unity being our greatest asset, some quarters continue to sow divisive politics as part of their delusions of grandeur.

Dicing with danger

When we start splitting hairs over race and religion in our economy, it’s obvious we’re heading down a slippery slope of blinding ignorance and ominous prejudice.

Give kindness a chance

THERE is a certain degree of apprehension, even uneasiness, this year as we celebrate National Day. Race relations in this country isn’t anything to be proud of, what with manufactured fears fuelled by groups with political interests.

Plural Malaysia is an asset

No amount of racial and religious rancour is going to unsettle Malaysians born and bred here, because the love for our nation is inclusive and pure.
