The Assistant Minister Datuk Karim Hamzah could not have said it any better,”I attended mission school..( for those reading this blog and that is St.joseph’s Secondary School in Kuching Sarawak) and went to church ( St.Joseph’s Cathedral across the road from the school) as part of the education system, but it did not make me any less of a Muslim.( very true…undisputed..!!)
In fact, the old system made us more understanding and tolerant of each other.
( this is in fact how our leaders should potray themselves.. audie61 is not going to apple polish the assistant minister for his words but his statement yesterday was indeed timely as the RELIGIOUS BIGOTS and SOME FAR RIGHT RELIGIOUS EXTREMISTS from both the Christians and Muslims are taking pot shots and outdoing each other.
( Very soon the Almighty Creator might just have to shut them up…..if you know what I mean……..Of course we are not in a position to do that but GOD KNOWS..)
Meanwhile politicians too have been going on a wild rampage and trying to score political points and making themselves relevant to the VERY FEW who sees that they are harping it right. They too know who they are and some have sinced toned down as they know too they will and might be struck down by unseen forces. Their sixth sense is telling them to put a FULL STOP.
Those who intend to carry on are not worthy to be serving Malaysia as they are so very…INSIDE THEIR OWN BOX. Some would say they might even be under a certain spell or what they say in England “witch craft”. God bless their souls and for us they should not live in multi-cultural,multi ethnic,multi-religious Malaysia. (Should we suggest TIMBAKTU wherever that is??) hahaha…
This we extract from the English daily which Datuk Karim Hamzah was the Guests of Honour and spoke ……
The choice of a Christian centre for the venue bore testimony to the state’s religious tolerance and the unique harmony among the people.
“I don’t think it would be possible to do this in the peninsula without some people inciting tension,” said Abdul Karim, who pointed out that the racial and religious tension prevalent in the peninsula had never been an issue in Sarawak.
“In Sarawak we help one another, regardless of race or religion. In the old days, I attended mission school and went to church as part of the education system, but it did not make me any less of a Muslim. In fact, the old system made us more understanding and tolerant of each other.
“It was a beautiful in the past. I hope the youths today will learn and do not be too engrossed with what politicians or NGOs say nowadays. Young Sarawakians should be proud of the cohesion that is only unique in Sarawak,” he
Touching on the forum, Abdul Karim called on social media savvy youths to use the various tools in the internet to enhance the existing social cohesion among Sarawakians to create greater understanding and strengthen unity.
“The youths today must not take for granted the harmony and stability. They must ensure that the well-knitted fabric be kept intact. It is more crucial to understand in these times of fast-moving technology and maintain what we have all this while.
“Abuse of social media leads to misunderstanding and create tension. It can be a stumbling block to the state’s attempt at development,” he said.
