Events unfolding following the resurrection of the 'Allah' controversy is disturbing. Every fair minded Muslim and Christian ought to know that the issue is more a political game than a pressing pain in the society.
Muslims and Christians, along with fellow Malaysians from other faith and beliefs, are enjoying life in their own way. We have been living well like this for quite a long time. We have been relatively united as our similarities outweighed our differences. That is Malaysia.
Yes, we could always harp on our differences and continue the charade of public hatred against each other, along racial lines for political agenda when necessary. When religion is hijacked by desperate/failed politicians and power crazy socialist-turned capitalists, the charade gathers more fuel and followers.
Where would this charade end? Where is the charade taking us?
Do read Statesman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's advice on the 'Allah' controversy that was penned almost a year ago, in January 2013.
"While we can have political differences, we should not resort to our religious differences to win elections. It is a double-edged sword and those who live by the sword shall die by the sword." - Chedet
