Non-Muslims looked after
SEPANG: There are already various government committees and panels in existence that look after the affairs of non-Muslims in the country.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said various ministers in the Cabinet had been charged with the responsibility of looking after the interests of different religious groups.
“For instance, Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting looks after the interests of the Buddhists, Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu covers the Hindus and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Bernard Dompok covers the Christians in the country.
What happens if the MCA President is a Christian, then who represents the Buddhist?
or if the MIC President is a Buddhist, then who represents the Hindus?
and what if they were all New Age-ers?
or if they all had a religion to their name but were non-practitioners?
The PM forgets that not every race is like the Malay race in Malaysia which dictates that if you are a Malay, therefore you are a Muslim by default.
[thankfully] there is no compulsion in religion for the non-Malays.
His idea of a solution is as shallow as his being.
