I do not have a good feeling about this, I have a very bad feeling that Malaysia is heading for severe racial tensions and the ruling Islamic party will also turn right in order to save the power berth. Pretty much transparent. And unfortunately, Muslims in Malaysia are not in the huge majority so it will not be pretty at all. Secularism is the only way forward but that will only happen after a huge conflict, I think.
State directed discrimination never works out properly. When you have institutionalised discrimination, it will piss off somebody!
