7 out of 10 Chinese see themselves as Malaysian First, claims J-Star survey

So we can expect seven out of every 10 Chinese in the country to be able to speak Malaysia’s national language as their native tongue (just like the ethnic Chinese in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines do their respective country’s native language) and also be willing to send their children to National School.

Who’s the bad guy in Taman Medan? THINK DEEPER

“50 people took it upon themselves to resort to thuggery,” said the NST editorial today on the Taman Medan incident concerning the church cross.
