Of black shirts and candles in Malaysia

What the two items above have in common is that they are suspected to have the curious potential of causing social unrest or political instability in Malaysia.

Perhaps these two things are too much of a clashing contrast (one is darkness while the other is obviously brightness) that Malaysians are warned against using them even in the most peaceful fashion.

To be sure, participants of a recent vigil found out that the authorities were indeed determined to arrest this seemingly unsavoury fetish.

    Those who like darkness can’t even stand candle light
    For fear they’ll be shown to all what they are really like
    Yet we all need God’s light to live life that’s truly bright
    With His light and love we pray will drive away all fright

    Don’t fight people…..!!!!

    We “ARE” born in this multi racial society. And that’s correct….!!!
    Like it or not…!

    We go to school “knowingly” that there “ARE” all sorts of races & attitude & faces…….!!!

    So… why must or why are we “at each other’s neck” becoz of the politician’s own “fight”……………..????????????????????

    What has made us Malay vs Malay, Chinese vs Chinese, Indians vs Indians, Others vs Others, Etc…, Etc……………?????

    It’s becoz of the politicians & their parties that we “side” THAT makes us like “enemies”…………..!!!

    It is the “Politician’s” fault that makes Malaysians divides..!!

    But we all have “1 Goal”…………..

    “Peaceful Malaysia…!!!!!”

    Can we all “NOT” get sucked into their SELFISH agendas…..????

    Thank you.

    Candles are fine by me. But the connotations blackshirts have scares the hell out of me. Go to Wikipedia to find out about blackshirts.

    What the two items above have in common is that they are suspected of causing social unrest and instability in Malaysia, among I Polis Raja.

    Sociologists all over the world should use this curious phenomenon as a basis for their thesis studies so we all can better understand this curious behaviour, which almost always results in an excess of knee-jerk reactions among these denizens in khaki uniform!

    And the worst part is I’m taking the risk of running foul of the law just because my father passed away 1 month ago and I’m still mourning for him by wearing black!

    Candles are something I can’t avoid too so long as I cherish his memory and wish to honor him by burning candles in his memory!

    I wish those who wear blue would just come and arrest me so we can argue till we both turn blue if I had defied police orders simply for practicing an age old custom of mourning for a loved one!
