Interfaith dialogue must strive for harmony
....Rais Yatim, Minister of Information, MalaysiaExcuse me, YB but what else would participants in a dialogue strive for? Disharmony ah? Then dialogue waffor? Like that also must make like you just stumbled upon something great ah?
Errr..actually that sentence quite terror to say you know. Try it la. Stand on a chair, puff up your chest, raise your right hand index finger in the air and then say loudly......
"Interfaith dialogue must strive for harmony"
Feels good right?
Also ah...this next bit is quite funny.
Rais said that Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s suggestion that local writers should be given preference over foreign authors when selecting literary works for schools and institutions of higher learning was "..... music to our ears.. We welcome this. We have been waiting for this kind of policy. As such, prominent local writers must redeem themselves.”
As such local writers must redeem themselves?
Meaning that the reason why local literature was not given preference in the first place was because local lit sucks???
So now the fuckers (writers) better REDEEM themselves???
Someone at The Malaysian Insider is going to get it for 'misquoting' the YB, I think. Sorry ah MI.
