Who's the Enemy?

t's not just about being racist or not. The fact that there are such critics in our community reflects a very divided community. The reaction and the fear that is being generated is alarming. We must go beyond race and religion if our community were to be successfully together. Fear and amity will destroy a nation.
Well done YB Hannah on this.


Then there are those who want think this is not a good move.


This is an interesting point but I am not sure I agree totally but something to think about. 
Then again - this is a comment not from a Malaysia, how valid is this comment?






No More 24-hour Mamaks, Nah!



This is a case or either:
 
a. politicians have not depth and try to show they are clever that Social ills can simply be curb by shutting down the 24 hour Mamak stalls.
b. politicians have too much time in their hands, coming up of such outlandish ideas.
c. they have terrible advisors.
b. the media have written something out of context or misquoted, which will very likely use or blame.
Either ways, I am questioning the ability of our lawmakers to truly do things that benefit us, the citizens.


Then again, this could just be a speech-writer's fantasy and the lights may just go out on this crazy idea.

Why won't the Buddhists Speak up for the Rohingya?

A quick response to Perlis Mufti Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin statement in the media.



1. If Mufti Mohd Asri care to google he will find many statements the Buddhist and interfaith community speaking up against the violence against the Rohingyas, including the incidents in Sri Lanka and elsewhere.

Where are our religious and spiritual values




(source here)

Are there Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Taoist in our Malaysian government holding on to the teachings of compassion, mercy, kindness, empathy, benevolance and humanity to make a call to rescue the Rohingyas from the open seas?

We have done so before when the Vietnamese boat people arrived in the 70s. We can definitely do better!

This is not right!

Sharing my personal thoughts on the the Rohingya boat refugees turned away by Malaysia, sending them back to sea:

1. What is done by the Malaysian government not right. How can it be that every member of the Malaysian cabinet, senior Government officials, in their hearts agree to this?  I do not think so. I believe we have the heart to save lives..

We continue to pray and raise support for those struggling with the post-quake crisis.

A Buddhist Reflection



Just came to a realisation that Buddha Siddhartha Gautama was not a Buddhist! Wondering why I try so hard to be a Buddhist? Perhaps, we need to be Buddhas.

or maybe no. Perhaps, we should just be...........

with some interesting discussion FB
