Since Najib Razak appears to consider ‘pendatang’ about as offensive as the ‘Nigger’-word, how about replacing it with ‘penjelma’ instead?
The PM posted in najibrazak.com today,
“In my speech at the launch of the Christian for Peace and Harmony (CPHM) movement, I stressed that the term ‘pendatang’ or migrants should never be used to refer to a Malaysian.
“Such divisive terms are misused to ignite and breed racial as well as religious conflict in the country. As Prime Minister, I will not allow such terms to cause segregation.
“I am an advocate of wasatiyyah or moderation in everything we do. All religions preach moderation but it is extremism that creates conflict rather than unify the multicultural society of the country.”
Take Johor for Jesus
One reader commented @ 2015/06/02 at 1:29 pm that I was taking the “non issue” of the ‘Take [xyz location] for Jesus‘ and making it “into a huge deal”.
The non-issue and small matter in Jeff’s eyes has elicited the intervention of the Johor exco for Housing and Local Government, the Menteri Besar and latest, from the Johor Crown Prince.
Take Johor for Jesus also drew 22 police reports. Not such a non-issue after all, eh?
