Out of respect for religious freedom, no restriction has been imposed, although it should be celebrated moderately as they are less than ten per cent of the population.” “…jika tidak ada arahanpun, sepatutnya pihak gereja … Continue reading

Mkini has more guts than Insider

By Sharifuddin Abdul Latiff Both Malaysiakini and Malaysian Insider in their reports used the translation “small fry”. However, Insider has taken down its editorial titled ‘Muhyiddin’s small fry for faith’. Clicking on the URL takes the reader to an ‘Article not found’ notice.

Should APCO Speechwriters Run Our Country?

By Eyes Wide Open APCO seems to be really earning their million-ringgit PR contract. Najib’s speeches are taking on that warm and fuzzy glow. One might almost mistake him for the Malaysian version of Obama if one was not aware of the long list of controversies surrounding him. The Malaysian Insider reported a glowing speech … Continue reading

Replying To “Non-Partisan”

by Eyes Wide Open “Non-Partisan”, the facebook entity who posted a screenshot of an inflammatory comment by one Bedy Nx Muneh, has made his way into HartalMSM and made some very eloquent rebuttals on the article by Sharifuddin in our comments section. This person must have his/her knickers in quite a twist since he made … Continue reading

Mr IGP, give peace a chance

It is evident that the path towards sustainable harmonious co-existence having the all-important humanity element is clearly understood by the director-general of the NUID. And he appears determined to put in place ‘pre-conflict’ checks and balances whereby society has a decent shot at coping with adverse conditions.
