Malaysia's Wonder Woman

With BN's Brobdingnagian failure and now when it seems PH too are starting to head in that general direction – there is a gaping need to find another way out of this screw-up that Malaysians are finding themselves stuck in. 

And a hero has appeared. In the form of Wonder Woman. The Malaysian version. Our very own, activist lawyer, Siti Kasim (right).

Sure, the long struggle to save Malaysia came about with the May 09, 2018 general election – and which witnessed regime change – BUT NOTHING ELSE IS HAPPENING. 

Pakatan Harapan, despite their reformasi credentials don’t seem to have the steely courage to want to reshape, reframe and reboot the nation into Malaysia Baru

Unfulfilled election promises, racial and religious rhetoric and PH’s shortsightedness which is apparent from their politicized policies do not augur well for the country. 

Already, Mahathir Mohamad (left) and his Bersatu had grabbed critical portfolios and ministries and filled them with dimwits (Maszlee Malik, Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman and Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof immediately come to mind) – and with his own brand of toxic politics has put the whole country on a downward trajectory. 

PH are slowly and surely evolving into a flop. 

As the dissatisfaction, disgruntlement and frustration grow, a few individuals have stepped forward to give Malaysians new hope. 

Hopefully, it is the new political narrative, the one that PH were entrusted to fashion but have since chickened out. 

MAJU (or Malaysian Action for Justice and Unity Foundation) launched on August 28 this year by Siti, hope to bring together ALL Malaysians to network with the goal of creating a more inclusive nation. 

This is critical as the nation is now divided along race and religion – which is detrimental for future generations. 

And they made a good start. The MAJU forum titled “The Battle is Not Over after May 9th – Be Empowered to Save Malaysia” held on Wednesday at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall pulled in close to two thousand Malaysians. It is said that the overwhelming public response had surpassed the organizers’ expectations. 

Malaysians are expected to turn to MAJU if we wish to keep faith with the country that still holds so much promise but yet still unable to deliver that potential. 

Let’s “maju” with MAJU!
