Time for Moderate Malaysians to Make their Views Known

Malaysia is facing some serious challenges and unless more moderate Malaysians make their views known, the nation could be in serious trouble.

The latest public demonstration in Kelana Jaya shows that peaceful demonstrations can have a proper place in modern society; especially when the ordinary folks do not have access to their MPs and other national figures.

You can read this story from malaysiakini here:

Even if the police may have dissuaded many from attending what they "deemed" an illegal gathering, the completion of this event without a major incident shows that Malaysians are still a peaceable people.

We should commend both the PR leadership and the Police for exercising restraint and providing the opportunity to prove that we can have a peaceful protest.

I am sure our top leaders know what are the main issues that we need to face - unresolved corruption, the leadership succession challenges, the failure of the education systems. No need for me to repeat the litany of issues.

We need more moderate men and women in high places to make their views known so that the whole nation will be able to see the light at the end of the long dark tunnel
