After 3 hours of meeting yesterday, it was announced that the Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth leaders have accepted Khairy Jamaluddin's explanation as regards to his racial remarks about the chinese taking a upper-hand if the malays were weak was misinterpreted or misquoted by the media. As far as everyone knows, to raise any racial sentiment is a social crime in Malaysia and under national security, the said person need to be detained under the 'famous' Internal Security Act (ISA) without further questioning. Khairy, a educated Oxford scholar, cannot claim ignorance now. Even until now, he has no guts to apologize to the chinese or non-malay communities for his racial remarks. Not all the chinese in Malaysia are members of BN component parties. A public apology is required since it affects the masses. Being a very holy month for muslims, it seems that Khairy has no desire to repent for his mistake and worst of all, even Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, has joined with him to bail him, when Hishammuddin knows for sure that he had in some form or another made this remarks, which is also a sin during this ramadhan month. Its seems to us that Hishammuddin could be the leader but is a servant of Khairy. It was reported that Hishammuddin did not allow Khairy even to speak to the reporters to explain his views since the matter pertains to him in fear of further blunders.

Its totally surprising that the non-UMNO youth leaders of the Barisan Nasional Youth have accepted his racial remarks without an 'open' apology. Even Lee Kuan Yew has made a point to apologise for his racial remarks although there is some truth in his statement.

Its time the government take action against Khairy since his remarks had incited racial sentiments. The question that he is the son-in-law of the Prime Minister is a separate issue. Anyone who breaks the law need to be punished. The ISA is there, so use it.

Will our government do it?

From this, you can safely say that the Barisan Nasional Youth leaders are a laughing stock.
