DATUK Seri Najib Razak has marked his one year in office. Since becoming prime minister, much has taken place under his administration, from the propagation of 1Malaysia to economic measures such as the New Economic Model. His one year as premier has also been marred by the rising tide of racial and religious tensions.
What challenges and dangers lie ahead for the Najib administration, and for Malaysia? The Fairly Current Show host Fahmi Fadzil speaks with lawyer, blogger, activist Haris Ibrahim for his take on things.
Haris is also the coordinator of the Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia project.

Speak one language. We are okay with BM or English but not both. It makes one look seriously inept, like wearing flip-flops to a coronation.
KW Mak says
I have foreign friends who are totally amazed at the typical Malaysians’ capacity of using two or more languages to make a sentence and still have others comprehend / understand what was said.
Being multi-lingual is part of our cultural identity. We should be proud of it and allow it to flourish.
As for appropriateness, I don’t think the show positioned itself as a serious / formal style programme that warrants its comparison to a coronation ceremony.
On a more serious note; your statement sounded like a restriction on cultural practices… which parallels Malaysia’s ongoing debate on religious matters.
Excellent “show” and an eye-opener too (for those who do not know)!
