Damage has been done

Mufti (religious head of scholars) of Perak urged Muslims not to attend open houses during the Malaysian festivities of Christmas and Chinese New Year, saying that it is unIslamic. A Kedah member of Parliament described Indians as "keling" and asked all non-Malays to leave the country if they are not happy with the terms and conditions set by UMNO. Then, the son-in-law of the Prime Minister said that the Chinese will take advantage of a weak Malay unity. Takaful Malaysia stopped its Muslim staff from wishing Hindu colleagues and customers a Happy Deepavali. NO APOLOGIES FROM THE BUMIPUTERAs.

When ASLI's 45% bumiputera equity report came out and its head apologised for "incorrect assumptions being used in the report", the son-in-law of the Prime Minister said, "damage has been done". Ketuanan Melayu and Islam Hadhari mean never having to say sorry.
