Don’t surrender your responsibility to think

There was a protest today at Symonds St, the trunk road that runs through the University of Auckland. A group of students staged a sit-in on the road, prompting the police to close the road and forcing the student-protesters to stand up by literally pulling them up. Of course, such a commotion would attract a […]

Migrate, and don’t go back

It is truly saddening to see just how easily some people forget their roots. To be able to suggest to their fellow countrymen to migrate and don’t go back, just because they watch a video of a certain politician saying certain things that they don’t agree with, reflects a total absence of patriotism and a […]

Michael Heart – We Will Not Go Down

I have always believed that the crisis and war in Gaza are more than just a religious conflict. It is a crisis of humanity that warrants the attention and concern of every man and woman who upholds peace as a core value in his heart, regardless of his religion, race, colour, and nationality. This song […]

Why such a ruckus over hudud law?

Ever since PAS Vice President Husam Musa said that PAS and the Pakatan Rakyat would have enforced the hudud and qisas if Pakatan Rakyat were to take over the Federal Government of Malaysia, there has been a stream of oppositional reactions voiced by many leaders of many political parties.

The leader I want to see

The current political situation in Malaysia nowadays has surely invited a lot of commentaries from my fellow friends in the Sri KDU IB Community. It has also exhort some individuals into appearing as ‘inspired’ of becoming the nation’s next leader in the future, and claim that they will supposedly ‘repair’ the country and vow to […]

The Malaysian Social Contract

Article is taken from chedet.com, written by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. 1. Before there was Malaya and Malaysia the peninsular was known as Tanah Melayu, or Malay Land. 2. Saying this alone would result in accusations of being racist. 3. But I need to go back in history if I am going to be able […]

Will the dust ever settle?

Many people described the last 12th General Election as a political tsunami for the ruling coalition.
