It is irresponsible of the Workers' Party Faisal Manap to raise the issue in Parliament.
His approach is divisive and clearly political. It's meant to stir the angst of people. One must remember that Faisal also famously declared in Parliament that politics and religion cannot be separated. Just imagine if believers of every other religion adopt the same stand in Parliament and freely mix politics with religion on every occasion.
This precarious harmony that we have so diligently and conscientiously built, that is the envy of the world, will be fragmented in no time.
While discussions behind closed doors had been ongoing for many years, Faisal chose to raise it in Parliament to score political points and claim credits when change has in fact evolved.
