Thank You!

I sincerely thank Professor Clive Kessler and Mavis C Puthucheary for attending my book review session last night. I was humbled by their presence not only because it was their book “Sharing the Nation” that I reviewed, but also because they are the authors of many other works on Malaysian politics and society that I enjoyed very much. I also thank Khalid Jaafar for sharing his views on the historical root of Malay society. Most of Khalid’s ideas - for he himself is a self-professed “soft-secularist” in a sea of “Islamist-Malay” world - are thought provoking. His proposition about the Malays’ secular root warrants further investigation though. I also thank Bro. Eekmal from the Middle Eastern Graduate Center (MEGC) for organizing the event last night. For those who attended the session, thank you and nice meeting you all!
