Who are the people PAS Youth trying to dupe? PAS Youth secretary Kamaruzaman Mohamad in a statement said the reports referred to a handing over of an official invitation letter to Umno Youth to have a discourse on the topic titled "Is it true that Umno's struggle is not against Islam" through the setting up of a secretariat of both movements.
From the topic, we should expect a nasty and confrontation debate from the two youth movements. Logically, the PAS Youth should blame UMNO Youth for not being Islamic enough and had deviated from the teaching of Islam.
But it does not look like the two movements are going to be engaged in any heated debate. Funny, why would two debating teams willing to set up a joint secretariat?
These goons are at it again. The nation should be ready to move beyond the some senseless and useless debate on race unity. The bigger question should be can the people unite to make this country a socio-economic powerhouse? Can we unite to compete against the rest of the world? Can we work together to curb corruption, social injustices, crime etc?
Only today I met several top executives who said that the lack of skilled labour is a bigger threat to our economic development than the lack of liberalisation. Companies find it extremely difficult to hire good skilled people in Malaysia.
Hence, many had chosen to set up their companies in Singapore or Hong Kong despite a higher labour cost. Many Malaysian professionals can be found working in these economies.
Are both PAS and UMNO willing to discuss the important issue of retaining brains in the country?
As a Malaysian, I am growing disenchanted with our politicians and their inability to focus on real important issues.
As a news website put it, Malaysians were the force of change in the last general election. We must continue to push for a real change in the next by weeding out all useless politicians.
