Stop shouting 'reformasi,' that era is over

Published:  |  Modified:

COMMENT | I viewed the video of Anwar Ibrahim’s arrival at the Kuching Indoor Stadium for the Hari Raya/Gawai joint celebration on June 16.

A big crowd was present to welcome the PKR president and I congratulate Sarawak PKR for organizing a successful and meaningful event.

A joint celebration of two festivals among people of different races and religions depicts the true spirit of racial and religious tolerance and harmony of the people of Sarawak. This is the pride of Sarawakians.

As the PKR president entered the hall, a supporter shouted ‘Reformasi’ in an attempt to elicit a chorus from the crowd perhaps. But the response was muted. The chant ended feebly as soon as it started.

Perhaps PKR people are tired of the slogan, which was very popular at the height of the Reformasi era which began in 1998 following Anwar’s sacking as deputy prime minister, his corruption and sodomy trials and his imprisonment.

What is Reformasi about? The main focus was on Anwar and seeking justice for him...
