It seems that some people are out to make mischiefs, massive mischiefs, by intimating that DAP and Christians leaders are trying to subvert the Federal Constitution by planning to make Christianity the official religion of Malaysia.
This came out when a Malay daily, Utusan Malaysia, which some people say is the government's mouth piece, front paged a story on 7th April of two blogs that intimated that DAP and some Christian leaders had a meeting to plan for making Christianity the official religion.
Both the DAP and Christian leaders have denied planning to make Christianity the official religion. And there do not appear to be any good reason why they would want to, or are fool hardly enough to do so.
If what the bloggers are trying to intimate is untrue, and there appears to be no reasons to believe otherwise, what they are doing is more than mere mischief, if not actually incendiary and certainly very dangerous. In another time, there would have been a racial clash!
Fortunately nowadays, Malaysians are better informed and know how to distinguish between provocation and the truth.
Some people say that the latest move is a desperate attempt by certain quarters to justify another Operation Lallang, mass arrests and detention without trail under the ISA, to perpetuate their hold in government.
They say that this impression is strenghtened by their observation that Utusan Malaysia seems to get away with whatever it publishes including articles often seen as seditious.
I don't know. I am not wise.
