The Ugly Malay and the Beautiful Malay

You may have already read Marina Mahathir's blog where she honestly wrote about the ugly behaviour of some Malays, http://rantingsbymm.blogspot.com/2009/09/ugly-malay.html. There were pretty strong reactions to her article from both ends of the spectrum.

I followed a thread in the Star that lead to a blog by a fellow Malay-Malaysian entitled the Beautiful Malay, at http://harismibrahim.wordpress.com/2009/09/07/the-beautiful-malay/.

Malaysia is made up of myriad races and people of different political beliefs and lifestyles. So be it, and indeed that is the strength of any country - to be plural and multi-layered in all aspects. But what must exist is the FREEDOM to be different, the RIGHT to be respected and protected by the law EQUALLY, and an EDUCATED GOVERNMENT.
