Sedition and ethno-religious reporting
COMMENT Ethno-religious reporting is critical to understanding the socio-political fabric of Malaysia but it is circumscribed by draconian laws, principally the Sedition Act 1948, like a millstone around the necks of editors and any discussion of race and religion is immediately stifled.
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.
