Forced conversion and rights of the child

comments         Published     Updated

MP SPEAKS It almost seems like a joke. I am referring to what BN leaders spew out, except that their words send a shiver down my spine and will have major repercussions on our society.

Kinabatangan MP Bung Moktar Radin has told AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman Rani to migrate. And all Rani did was to criticise the Malay daily Utusan Malaysia over its racial editorials.

In another attack against AirAsia, a BN member of parliament has raised the issue of the low-cost carrier reviewing the length of its female cabin crew’s skirts.

It really amuses me that lawmakers are debating frivolous issues, especially when there is a nationwide uproar against the government’s efforts to push through the Administration of Islamic Law (Federal Territories) Act Amendment Bill 2013 that seeks to ensure that permission from just one parent is enough to convert a child to Islam.

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.
