It is contradictory, of course.
One minute, the Government wants everybody to speak, read and write the National Language, Malay. The next minute, they try to block Bibles precisely because they are written in the Malay language.They then play a will-they, won't-they game with the whole nation watching.
When they finally release the Bibles, they unneccesarily create another issue by stamping the bibles.
If the BN doesn't trip over it's left foot, it trips over it's right.
The MCA meanwhile, with, it's only objective being to try to ensure that it doesn't lose more votes, pretends it isn't part of the Government and jumps up and down. It's sheer hypocrisy. The MCA cannot pretend to be against the BN's actions and policies, while supporting the BN and being a part of it. It is almost immoral to posture in this manner. But then, Mr.Chua Soi Lek is not unfamiliar with immorality.
We very much doubt, if the Sarawak election wasn't so soon, whether the Bibles would have been released so quickly, if at all.
So much fear, of the written word.
