"In Rustam we had a true patriot, one whose love for the country is pure. It is so because it came from the head as well as the heart. It is patriotism unadulterated by the pursuit of material wealth, public adulation, or political power." - M. Bakri Musa
From half a world away in California, M. Bakri Musa sends us a posting here on how he remembers Rustam Sani (pic), who died this morning.
Rustam ran the Vox Populi and Suaraku. His last posting was on April 21.
RUSTAM's last books “Failed Nation? Concerns of Malaysian Nationalist” and “Social Roots of the Malay Left” will be launched this Saturday by Anwar Ibrahim.
