It is disquieting to read the ungainly, and to some extent of uncultured remarks in our cybersphere community on racial issues in place, for this reason it makes our lives too nervous and anxious.
The reservations, suspicions and mistrust among races are at the highest pinnacle. I can safely say that the situation is more awful than the environment before the spark of May 13 1969 and there is an urgent need for the issue to be politically and scientifically addressed.
The character of commentaries in the internet, bass beat and disparaging each other is too disturbing and unsettling as if there is no more option for racial tolerances and co-existence any longer.
No one should disagree that racial harmony is the only ingredient for Malaysian to live in community of civility to give scope for Economic, Social, Culture and other aspects of developments to set in motion.
In the absence of racial unanimity standing upright, everyone; Malays, Chinese, Indians, Ibans, Dayaks, Dusuns, Kadazans or any other Malaysian are not going to live without stressfulness in this great but mismanaged nation.
No one gains by being nasty to each other but instead we only have to endure sufferings and misfortunes that would be a dreadful inherent of our future generation.
Obviously no one is going to win a prize for the misgivings; in fact everyone is going to disburse high compensation for it.
No one race or individual is perfect for each other as nature wants it that way for everyone to withstand and co-exist within the community of diversified races, religions, and culture with full understanding of idiosyncrasies of each race and community or even individuals.
God create us with difference from each other in order to illustrate his Greatness to mankind. He does not create uniformity as that would not actualize the element of respect and recognizing for each other.
It is only through diversities that we can demonstrate the constituent of respect and regards among human beings. Being able to live within the diversities that God creates makes the difference between us and other beings.
Can one imagine if God were to create all human being in uniformity; same race, identical appearances, same value, same in everything. Would there be any live?
Surely there won’t be any element of respect as everybody is the same and have the same values and feelings; hence there would not be any quarrel as they perceive things the same way.
So, there are no struggles, no politics, no police, no army, and no nothing to make up lives with struggles as there is nothing for one to accomplish.
There is nothing to know about others and nothing to co-exist with as everybody is the same and indistinguishable.
Thus, by the differences between us, we are having the option to understand the other or to respect and to accomplish individual struggles within the diversity created by nature.
In shorter way of saying it, ONE who does not respect another creation of God means he does not worship God…and that’s it.
The young may not have the experience of lives in tribulations and we are here to impress upon them that learning through others in the past is the best way of detouring from committing mistakes for our own selves.
Don’t ever go through the soreness yourselves to learn like my generation did, as it would take too much toll to your lives and you would surely meander towards despondency of lives for you and your families.
Lives are short and let us enjoy what God bestows upon us to the fullest within the parameter of IMAN. It is too inane for one to go through the evils and troubles when we can bypass it for harmonious and quietude live.
We have enjoyed this atmosphere of lives and we were all working towards one goal that was national unity through processes of assisting each other to rise economically and other aspects of importance.
I have been blaming the leadership after Hussein Onn for these unambiguous distortions in the effort to unite the people as they spent so much focus on physical development progressions without realizing these physical development would mean nothing if there racial disharmony.
BUT those have passed, and we should struggle for a new phase of politics if the old is already of no corollary. After all our lives are always the struggles with the old forms to give way for a new ones and politics has always been part of it.
BUT the candid questions are what the real new emergence out of the old forms? What is to crystallize out of this new emergence? Can all those changes be adjusted to the desperate need of unity among different races?
Can political contours of our Malaysian politics be pre-determined and ensures excellent environment in place of unambiguous interracial distortion?
OR are we going to let the situation go its own way and just accede to the water finding it own level?
AND in whose account would it be if racial misfortune really takes place?
I say it conclusively; it’s the leaders of all races who are now on the wheel, who have to account for it.
AND to recompense it all, will be exceedingly costly.
So, to all Malaysians, let us live in solace and I still believe that this country is the best sanctuary for nice living.
The only handicap that this country has, is her leaders are perceived to have great passion for corruption. Their towering love for cash is too obvious while their love for the people is too petite.
The public perceive corruption has gone to the core; and they jibe that many of our leaders are experts in ‘Cash & Carry’ business.
Any way the rakyat is going to engage themselves on this issue democratically in the coming General Elections, I am sure.
