TILL DEATH BRING US CLOSER ...

TILL DEATH BRING US CLOSER ...

I am actually happy to see that senior Malaysian politicians from both camps are paying tribute to the loss of a good soul resting in peace ... a symbolic and honest act of honoring a man who has done so much in showing Malaysians young and old how a Constitution need to be upheld as the highest source of the law of the land, and what it means to help those in need seek justice.

Though I had the chance to get a few glimpses of Karpal Singh, in court when I briefly sat in to observe the proceedings of the Sodomy II trial a few years back, I felt that I had known Karpal for a long while as a deeply respected man of high principles as well as high morality. Of course as a young man studying political theory and writing papers on Malaysian politics, I had read about him and knew of his stature as Malaysia's best lawyer.

One poignant reality that is emerging is the sense of genuine multiculturalism amongst the young, I have been reading in cyberspace not only honoring Karpal but in condemning those attempts by bankrupt religionstas to disrespect the man whom Heaven must be waiting to honor his good work on Earth.

I think we are moving towards a good first step in political maturity and in showing each other what religious understanding and acceptance mean and how we must move forward as a society by learning from the best of the political minds whose life is devoted to a calling, not just a career, of helping others gain their voices and power amidst a society that has become totalitarian, oppressive, religiously abusive, and also one that has produced a regime whose lifeline and livelihood is sucking dry the blood, sweat, and tears of the powerless ... all in the name of maintaining the supremacy of not only a monocultural political system but also the sustenance of political dynasties.

Till death bring us closer to a more saner politics ...

REST IN PEACE, Karpal Singh Sir ...

We shall continue to defend the Constitution in honor too ... of what you have lived and died for -- ar

Its also sad to see so much hatred being sowed onto the dearly departed. The saddest part is, those alive still harbour so much hatred and unwilling to let go.

I can only imagine what this hatred may manifest in this Earthly World before one faces the Almighty in the After World.
