said such a move was 'impossible'.
"I don't think it's possible (to abolish it) because it's a government agency whose job is to instill patriotism among the youth.
"But at the same time, every government agency including BTN should make an effort to update their modules to reflect the '1Malaysia' concept," he added.
Since when did we expect UMNO to bow to the wishes of those who wanted BTN to be scrapped? UMNO is a race based party. It is the party duty to promote its race based agenda. It is suppose to sound like other extreme organisations which had used the same method of promoting race supremacy. Remember the Nazi's Aryan race?
Shamelessly, Khairy should not speak and decide for all Malaysians if the BTN should go or not. Even if it is a government agency why can't it be dismantled? Even a government can be changed. This possibility looks like the only option if we want to enable wholesale change in Malaysia.
Next, the duty of a government is not to instill patriotism. Governments like North Korea, Cuba, China and other authoritarian African nations may do so but not a democratic government like Malaysia. This government should focus on governance and development.
Then again, what can we expect from Khairy's UMNO? What else can UMNO do? Just take a look at its bloggers, newspapers, TV stations, leaders and supporters. They have lost a sense of reason and fairness.
No wonder the economy is faltering, the education system is in a mess, the public institutions have lost their credibility, corruption scandals are aplenty and politicians are going berserk.
If we cannot get rid of BTN, can we get rid of a politician like Khairy? Mission impossible?
