Just the other day I was thinking about the world-wide reaction to the whole Prophet Mohammad cartoon business, and it suddenly popped to my mind that Malaysia wasn’t really in the picture. Just when I’m thinking it’s a miracle the muslims here didn’t do anything, I read
this.
Granted, it isn’t as big a reaction as some of the violence we’ve seen. I don’t think there’s anything wrong in expressing disapproval at all, as long as it’s done in a peaceful manner. What’s puzzling (or rather *not* puzzling) is the fact that this isn’t featured in the local media at all. Or at least in a prominent way. I mean, we’re talking 3000 strong protesters here.
Was there a suppression (shudder) or it is simply time for me to pick up the bloody papers these few days?
