Hannah in AFP interview: “How extreme can you be?”
Excerpt below from an international (wire agency) news report yesterday @ http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/concerns-of-rising/1951292.html?cid=twtcna
“I really think moral policing has to stop,” said Selangor State Speaker Hannah Yeoh.
“How do you draw the line? Now you hear about people giving women pants to cover up even when giving birth. How extreme can you be?”
But Ms Yeoh says such moral policing exists everywhere and she has experienced it first-hand.
After recently donning a headscarf inside a mosque, she was accused by a Chinese paper columnist of encouraging Malay government officials to impose dress codes on Chinese women.
“If you can’t tell the difference between wearing a selendang (headscarf) in a place of worship and being forced to wear a selendang in a government office, then something is quite wrong,” she said.
Ms Yeoh says at the end of the day, these issues are distractions and it is time to focus on bigger problems affecting Malaysia – such as the economy.” – AFP/ec
Hannah’s girls in the mosque
Why don’t the Chinese wear like the above mosque-trotting attire (which DAP evangelista girls in general appear to be so fond of) when they visit government offices?
Kan senang, instead of accusing the civil service bureaucracy of being “extremist” in imposing a dress code requiring the hemline to fall below the knee.
The Sin Chew columnist is perfectly correct to call out Hannah Yeoh and the DAP’s hypocrisy on this matter.
And speaking of Chinese media personnel, it’s more than high time the BN took action against the Nest of Evangelistas gunting dalam lipatan.
BN will be better off without the MCA just like PAS is functioning with much greater cohesiveness now that it has purged the Anwarinas.
The MCA are musuh dalam selimut backstabbers that is undermining the BN every step of the way through the EvangeliSTAR which the Chinese party has lost control of.
Have you noticed how the foreign media are almost always interviewing opposition people but rarely giving the establishment side a fair airing?
