Bolehlanders should think hard what they really want.
With things getting weirder and more surreal each day, it is really time Bolehlanders think hard about what they want.
If even how fans interact with their K-pop idols and an Indian student wearing baju kurung to school can become contentious issues to some people, what can we expect that will not become an issue some day, if not sooner rather than later?
This is the result of allowing the growing voices of unreason, extremism and intolerance going unchallenged and getting more strident each day.
With the government of the day lost in its way, unable or unwilling to lead for fear of its own survival, we are beginning to see extremist elements holding sway and dictating how we should live and conduct our lives.
It does not help that we have none other than a minister (who should have known better), who had, inter alia, (in) famously tweeted his nausea at the sight of the French rallies against extremism in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo killings.
Or a Pm who is better noted for his absence than leadership. Who talks sweet saccharine on moderation and tolerance but really does little concrete or meaningful by way of action on the ground to show he means business.
Or that the urging of the burning of the Malay language Bible is considered as defence of one's faith instead of being considered as incendiary.
If we are not mindful, we might well soon head towards Talibanic rule, when even flying a kite is considered a capital offence.
