1.Racial polarisation. After 56 years of Independence Malaysians are still very much divided along ethnic and religious lines. In fact we are worse off than when we started. So much hatred for others is being sowed in the hearts and minds of the people, worse so at a very tender age in primary schools when children should be innocently mingling around freely without thinking of the color of their skin or the faith they profess.
2. Rampant corruption. Today corruption has become an accepted practice. It has gone into mega scales and leaders who are to be examples have become involved in siphoning billions into their pockets. The rich are getting richer and poor getting poorer.
3.Escalating crime rate. The crime rate in the country has reached unacceptable levels where the people are now living in fear for their safety and that of their loved ones..The police seem unable to control crime and provide adequate security for the citizens. Thugs and criminals are taking control with the police is incapable or refusing to do anything drastic to stop them. A state of lawlessness appear to be imminent which sends shivers among the people
6.Blatant and gross abuse of power where ordinary man on the street cannot get justice with the public services, police and judiciary which are highly politicized and subdued by those in power. Ordinary citizens have become fearful of cooperating with the law enforcement agencies as the whistle-blowers get punished more often than the law breakers. Law abiding right thinking citizens are punished but criminals w3ho abuse the law go scot-free
There is an urgent need for change in the country which the people at large were prevented from doing so at the last 13GE.We cannot go on like this for long. Change must come and the sooner the better but the people are not sure how to bring about it. The people are unhappy, frustrated helpless and do not know what to do. More and more people are beginning to believe that only divine intervention can save the country from ruin and destruction.
On this 56th Merdeka let us all unite for once, regardless of the faith we profess and the God we worship, to pray for our country that goodwill, logic and reason will prevail. Let us pray that the good will triumph over evil for the well-being, peace and progress of all citizens regardless of race or creed.
