Can't Believe this is the country im going back to. Damn it.

I was shocked to see the story of a group of Malay-Muslim protesters claiming to be residents of Section 23 of Shah Alam carrying the severed head of a cow to the Selangor State Secretariat building. I cant believe There is such far-right wing people in the country, considering that Malaysia has been a multi-racial country for the past 200 years. Their action, although carried out 'in the name of Islam' did not defend Islam but had damaged the religion, as least in my eyes. All i can do is to shake my head in disbelief and shock at Mahyuddin Manaf and the residents there for their action. whats their motives and agenda?

Im vehemently against their action of carrying a severed head of a cow which is a sacred animal to the Hindus. The spokesperson for the group says that the head is for Mr. Xavier Jayakumar, one of the members of state executive council. Judging by his first name, ill assume that hes a Catholic, not a Hindu. this shows how ignorant these people are.

If their action is not considered seditious and a threat to the nation, I don’t know what else qualifies. The government needs to take action.

Rock Kapak urge goes on... Wings - Bernafas Dalam Lumpur  

Posted by Nigel J. W. Ong

Lama mana lagi
Hendak ku turutkan
Kata telunjuk yang menuding kepalaku
Sabar apa lagi
Hendak ku turutkan
Hingga aku bernafas bagai dalam lumpur

Wajah kita sama
Beza pada gaya
Itu pilihan masing-masing yang empunya
Mungkin pada usia
Rasa yang berbeza
Yang penting kita saling hormat menghormati

( korus )
Kita tak dapat bersama
Namun kita juga manusia
Kita punya rasa cinta
Masing-masing punya harga...oh..oh...

Mahu apa lagi
Akan aku korbankan
Selagi ada hayatku di kandung badan
Oh terima kasih
Kerana balasan
Semoga sejahteralah hidup semua
Oh kawan
