MP SPEAKS Malaysia seems to have developed a mania for negative publicity.

The latest is of course the Oct 14 Court of Appeal ruling banning non-Muslims from using the word ‘Allah’.

Or that’s what I understood until some cabinet ministers mouthed confusing statements, saying the ban is only binding on non-Muslims in the peninsula.

Then others joined the chorus by adding it was only meant for the Malay edition of Catholic publication The Herald.

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.
