It needed to be said, and am I glad it's been said. YB Liow Tiong Lai, the Transport Minister and MCA President, is proving to be a man of few(er) words these days but with soundbites like this one he's making, I am sure rational Malaysians won't complain. Personally, I think such maturity is needed. It is certainly not politically right to say NO to ALL public rallies but, look, all those rallies from Yellow to Red have brought nothing but a growing distrust among the major races, especially between the Malays and the Chinese, so who cares? I don't.
I hope Liow will stay the course and urge Prime Minsiter Najib Razak "to put a stop to all further rallies".
"Clearly, they are threatening to tear the fabric of our nation apart. MCA is adamant that all mass rallies must be stopped. The way forward is to return to the values of our founding fathers.” - Stop all future rallies, MCA tells Najib, TMI 24/9/15
