The government should
not ignore that cry in the dark from any community
2008 New Year Message by Karpal Singh
behalf of the DAP, I wish all Malaysians a happy and meaningful New Year.
There have been many challenges which the country had to face in 2007. The
government should not ignore that cry in the dark from any community. Any
problems faced by any community require to be addressed by the Government
fairly and squarely. The Government should ultimately work towards
equality for all across the board.
Malaysia is a country endowed with plentiful natural resources which is
the envy of other countries. There is enough for everybody’s needs,
although not for everybody’s greed.
Malaysians of all races should strive towards unity and set an example to
other countries that there can be unity in a multi-racial, multi-lingual
and multi-religious society. The country can ill-afford another May 13
which is a sad blot on the psyche of the country. However, peace and
harmony in the country, which has existed after May 13, should be
preserved by all citizens.
