no unity in msia??

I beg to differ. I believe that there is unity in Malaysia but because unity can't be defined within strict parameters, we often can't "see" unity. What is unity? Standing together with one voice over certain issues can be defined as unity. But I think helping out each other in times of trouble is also a form of unity. It is the essence that matters, not the outward appearance. Just because "high level people" (politicians?) keep harping on race and religion, it doesn't mean that the people are not united. We must remember that most politicians use and manipulate sensitive issues to attract attention to themselves. I don't think that stating race and religion causes disunity. People from different races and religions can still be united. But when the difference of race and religion is used to put down one another or to cause favoritism and bias, then unity is broken.
