    Should a CEO resign when things go bad?

Quote of the Day

“If the case of Siti Fairrah Ashykin Kamaruddin (road rage case in Kuantan) can be solved in a matter of eight days, cases involving insults against Malays should be dealt with quickly as well.”

 

Umno vice-president and Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi asking Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail to take swift action against those using social media to insult Islam, Malays and other races, and not be selective with his prosecution.

Say What?

“If you don’t understand the ways and sensitivities of the Malays, ask me. Not that I want to boast or show that I’m clever, but I understand the Malays.”

 

 

Chinese Muslim professor Dr Ridhuan Tee Abdullah writing in his column in Malay portal 'Sinar Harian Online'
