It is very upsetting to hear that the government blatantly uses all its agencies to promote disunity and racial polarization. Come on lah, after half a century since Independence, the government is still using the "divide and rule" method to ensure that they are in power. There is no race that is higher or better than other races. All are created equal, special and unique in God's eyes.
I'm really disgusted with what our government is doing. Waiting for next General Election.

BTN course teaches disunity
AS parents we are glad that our grown up children attend the Biro Tata Negara (BTN) course, which is compulsory for government servants. They are all mature professionals.
But what angers me is that, instead of talking integrity, unity and harmony among the various races, participants are taught about disunity and racial hatred. Is this what our Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib wants for 1MALAYSIA?
Throughout the five days of the course, participants are repeatedly told not to question Malay rights and so on. The course coordinators keep talking about social contracts and telling non-Malays not to question Malay rights and so on.
Many participants, including my Malay friends, are upset.
Are we still living in a primitive age? If the BTN course is to be conducted in this manner, it is better to abolish it or let it concentrate on only one ethnic group.
The course is not bringing unity but only arousing anger and hatred.
As it is handled by the Prime Minister’s office, please do not say that they do not know what is going on.
