To repent or not to repent (taubat), that’s the question. Lately we are kind of used in hearing stupid remarks and statements made by our politicians. This is not just a normal under the tree politicians; this is the same person we elected (not me) to represent our voices, our needs up to the higher echelon of the food chain. Yet their acts and thinking are not streamlined with the highest regard put upon them by us commoners.
One ex-MB had asked one ex-Minister to repent himself for questioning the Malay Supremacy (Ketuanan Melayu) and furthermore he said, this ex-Minister should get himself out of the “rumpun” Melayu. How one expects to get out of one “rumpun” and next to be in another “rumpun”, funny isn’t it?
I never heard a Chinese that doesn’t want to be a Chinese any longer and instead opt to be Malay, French, Indian, Eskimos or what so ever. I never heard Malay that doesn’t want to be Malay any longer and instead opt to be a Chinese, French, Indian, Eskimo, Punjabi or what so ever. The same goes to the Indian, in fact the same applies to whatever existing races on the face of this planet. One can never “bertaubat” from being in his race or “bangsa”, it is odd and very peculiar if these should happen.
How was that???
