“ I have watched with great alarm the worrying deterioration of inter-racial and inter-religious harmony in recent years and if I add to this the actions of some groups and individuals to unobtrusively, perhaps deliberately destroy the institutions of unity in our country to serve their own interests, I must confess to you that I am deeply troubled.
For too long, those of us who belong to the voices of moderation have stood aside and avoided the specter of confrontation because we wanted to just live our individual lives that are free from problems and unnecessary troubles. Such an attitude is no longer acceptable because standing back now would result in dire and irreversible consequences.”
Read the full speech of Tengku Razaleigh at the inauguration of AMANAH, as produced HERE by Dato Mohd.Ariff Sabri, aka Sakmonkol AKA47. In a posting of 1 July HERE, I did ask: Will he make his move soon? Presently, I harbor a wish that my friend Dato Ariff will make himself available to AMANAH.
