The NGO urged Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to immediately order the National Registration Department (NRD) to accept and register all children whose parents request that they be registered as 'Anak Malaysia'.
"We unreservedly support the right of the parents to determine the identity of their beloved child.
"Their stand to remind us of our common identity as human beings, and as members of this collective called Malaysia, deserves the highest accolade," said SABM in a statement today.
“The PAP failed to anticipate the extent of popular frustration in Singapore, where even a booming economy and near-full employment were not enough to satisfy the voters,” wrote columnist Karim Raslan in his CERITAH column.
“I can still remember the charming Singaporean Immigration lady officer last week stamping my passport who, when asked about the elections, said: “Well, now they have to listen to us, the people.”
He then urged:
Barisan Nasional and Umno strategists would do well to study Singapore.
Of course Najib can hear as he is neither deaf nor dumb. But will he LISTEN to us underlings. And as Karim Raslan concludes:
At this stage it’s all about listening – listening to the people.
