How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain
Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

A Vaithilingam: Laws still unfair to non-Muslims


"... I was told that in many states, assemblymen were given a thick file of many proposals at 9am and non-Muslim members of the ruling party voted in favour of the proposal for changes in the Islamic Enactment in the State Constitution -- all in one day!

When confronted by us they said they had no time to read the proposals and voted in favour because the leaders of the government had ‘assured’ them that the changes were for the Muslims and had nothing to do with non-Muslims!

Had the non-Muslims voted against the changes the respective amendments in 1988 in the Parliament and subsequently in states where non-Muslims were more than 1/3 the members, these laws will not be in existence today! It is interesting to note that only the non Muslims in the opposition voted against it.

The non-Muslims only felt the blow of Article 121(1A) in the early 2000s. First, was the case of Shamala Sathiyaseelan. Her husband converted to Islam, and secretly went to the Syariah Court for a divorce from his Hindu marriage.

He also secretly converted their children. The Courts said they could not interfere with the conversion.

Although they gave the mother custody, the High Court Judge imposed an impossible condition –the Court told the Hindu mother she cannot “expose” the children to her own religion!"
