More to 'Interlok' than 'offensive words'
MP SPEAKS The return of ‘Interlok’ is certainly not the right way to start the process of national reconciliation.
In response to the controversial novel being made into a television drama serial funded by the government, Communications and Multimedia Minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek has said that there should not be any problems because the drama will not involve any contentious words.
He was quoted as saying that the issue with ‘Interlok’ is with certain words being used, and not the storyline or theme.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
