COMMENT | The argument and debate surrounding the film ‘Mentega Terbang’ is one that has been going on in Malaysia for decades. Sometimes, I don’t even know why people are shocked about it because it is just expected. No one in Malaysia can honestly say that all the hoohaa that is happening isn’t something that is just so natural for Malaysia.
The conversation I had with some of my Malay friends can probably act as a little microcosm of middle Malaysia.
“A movie that shows a Muslim questioning her faith in Islam shouldn’t be shown,” said Izan.
“But have you seen the film and do you understand the context of the conversation the main protagonist has with her parents?” I asked.
