Don’t we have better things to worry about? (Update 1)

22 July: Penang state assemblymen refusing to wear baju istiadat.

9 June: Bravo fellow state assemblymen for being concern about wearing songkok!

Next thing you know, they will start questioning why non-Malay soldiers need to raise their hands for the reading of doa’ during parades? And what’s wrong with having prefects wear songkok in school? It’s not like they’re imposing a rule to have non-Malays wear Baju Melayu on Fridays or imposing non-Malays to embrace Islam, grow up! Don’t we have far more important things to worry about?

bro, it's all politics.

If wearing the songkok or donning baju melayu or baju kurung makes one malay, or wearing sari and parading in cheong sam makes one indian or chinese...then we are definately worse off than our forefahters...as they have no issues wearing those!!!

like i said, it is all policitcs.
