May God bless Malaysia

Dato Eric Chong, Erican


Got up early to pray this morning.

I admit I am not a religious man and don’t usually pray. But at a time like this…our country does need lots of prayers and blessings. So I followed my heart and found myself very quickly sinking into a deep and immersive meditative prayerful state.

As a Malaysian citizen, even though not classified a bumiputra, I want to say that Malaysia is my country just as much as it’s yours and I love it just much as you do. My non-bumi status doesn’t and shouldn’t make me any less Malaysian than anybody.

So I urge everybody, regardless of the religion you practice, to ask your God(s) to help Malaysia. When something is not humanly possible, mankind seeks divine intervention. I think this is not escapism; it’s just how we human beings deal with the unknown and when things are beyond our capacity and capability. So in a good old Malaysian way, let us go to our mosque, our church, our temple or any place which calms and soothes us – to focus and meditate on our country and our future.

Yes, our country has come to a point where it is beyond us. This must be the most critical political turmoil and chaos we are in since our independence. We are a democracy. We follow the rule of the majority. Whether or not the majority will do what is right for the country and not just themselves is the greatest test for Malaysians.

May God bless Malaysia. May all our endowed parliamentarians be given wisdom, courage and clarity to decide what’s best for the country. May Malaysia sail through this and emerge stronger, better and more mature as a growing nation.
