What’s wrong with us showing our sentiment sometimes?

September 4, 2013

Ko Myo

What’s wrong with us showing our sentiment sometimes?
We are not saints.
We are human beings.
Humans only normal human beings.
We have emotions and angers.
Moreover we have claws and canines as others have.
We can growl as can others.
We can bite as can they.

Good governance – the best present for a country

December 20, 2011

SOURCE: Good governance – the best present for a country by Steve Oh @ Malaysiakini (NOTE: I edited out all the Malaysian politics from this article.)
Yet the message of Christmas is hope for all mankind. That is why the angel could proclaim,’ Joy to the world…a saviour has been born to you.’ And Magi – the three wise Oriental kings came to worship him and place gifts at his feet.

Vote for the change to democracy but not about good and evil

Extracts taken and edited to Burmanize a very good article in MKini by Mervyn Lai, “True democracy not about good and evil”.

I propose an approach on how we should view every politician_

  1. (Government/military affiliated/opposition)
  2.  The politician is not a vessel of good or evil.
  3. She, or he, is a person.
  4. Just like yourself. There have clearly been days in which you have helped, and days in which you have been cruel to another.
  5. It is a sham if we believe that humans are capable of only good or evil in every moment of their lives.
  6. And like the rest of the world, politics is not a fairy-tale.
  7. The actors are not clearly separated into groups of protagonists versus antagonists.
  8. Politicians, it must be said, are representatives of various factions with possibly conflicting interests.

To know other faiths is to strengthen one’s own (in English, Burmese and Arabic)

September 17, 2010

In our Holy Quran, it is clearly stated that:

Al-Hujraat O mankind! We have created you from male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware. (13)

 

  1. We set you up as nations and tribes so that you may be able to recognize each other” (49:13).
  2. The division of human beings into nations, races, groups and tribes is for the sake of distinction, so that people of one race or tribe may meet and be acquainted with the people belonging to another race or tribe and co-operate with one another.
  3. This division of the human race is neither meant for one nation to take pride in its superiority over others nor is it meant for one nation to treat another with contempt or disgrace, or regard them as a mean and degraded race and usurp their rights.
  4. Indeed, the noblest among you before God are the most heedful of you (49:13).
