The dilemma that Malaysia is facing now is the same dilemma faced by many other Muslim societies where the defence and promotion of religion often goes hand-in-hand with the defence and promotion of communitarian interests of Muslims
It is odd, to say the least, that after more than fourteen centuries, there remain some people who claim to be Muslims but who still have not internalised the universal values of Islam. Odder still that there remain those who on the one hand can embrace Islam’s universal claim of brotherhood (and sisterhood) but still cannot get around to understanding the simple idea that Islam and racism do not mix.
