Racial and religious beliefs are visceral part of human psyche and being.
If anyone has been on the ground, and not hypothesize from an armchair, he will know that racial and religious tolerance or harmony can be fragile and be like glass.
An insensitive remark, even if it’s spoken out of a good intention can cause unintended backlashes, open up old wounds, and create new fault lines.
It can cause deep divisions in our country and polarize our people.
Once the social fabric is torn, it may be hard to return the fabric back to its original functional condition.
That’s why we have to be wary of the western version of freedom of expression and ensure that hate speeches are not allowed in our culture.
Let’s be mindful about the vulnerabilities of our societal fabric and continue to develop a stable, secure and sustainable level of racial and religious harmony.
I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
