GEORGE TOWN (Oct 31, 2010): The state government hopes to table the Race Relation Bill next year to forge unity among the public and stop racists and extremists from destroying society.
"We cannot allow racists to run riot and make a ruckus in the state," Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said.
He said the state authorities would engage various quarters, including NGOs and the state legal advisor to see if the bill can be introduced at the state assembly when it meets next year.
"It is time for us to see each other not as Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban or Kadazan, but as Malaysians," he said. "We all face the same issues in the country."
Lim, who is also DAP Secretary General, said Bukit Gelugor MP and DAP Chairman Karpal Singh had proposed the idea in parliament in the past, but it was thrown out.
"If we cannot propose it at Federal Level, we will study if it can be implemented at state level," he said at the Deepavali Open House held in Taman Tun Sardon today.
Also present were Karpal, Seri Delima assemblyman RSN Rayer, Batu Uban assemblyman S. Raveentharen and Datok Keramat assemblyman Jagdeep Singh Deo. About 300 people turned up at the open house, organised by the Lengkok Bawah Taman Tun Sardon Community Development and Security Committee. -- theSun Source here
