COMMENT | Is it hard to practise tolerance, understanding, forgiveness?

COMMENT | How do we as a nation and society progress and mature? I believe this will happen once everybody in the country is able to talk about issues, especially the sensitive ones, without being triggered and offended.

For that to happen, we the people need to also have a lot of tolerance, understanding, and empathy because we live in a multiracial, multireligious, and multicultural country.

There are just too many different kinds of people who are Malaysians and because of the many differences that we have, we cannot assume that we know exactly how to respect each other’s beliefs and culture.

We can try but we can’t be perfect about it. That’s why it would be best to just realise we are all not perfect, give a bit of leeway and assume the best in people.
