Today 31 st august is the Malaysians celebrate MERDEKA which is the independence day, from Britain,
Malaysia and the United States seems to have much in common ,Both the countries were British colonies, Though English is the official language of the US , in Malaysia English is widely spoken,and used by its people.
The Malaysian flag somewhat resembles that of the United States.
Recently Todd Akin an American Senator has stoked the American public about what he coins as” legitimate rape”, and that the rape victims body has mechanisms of blocking pregnancy due to rape..he must be out of his mind.
He seem to believe,” that some rapes are rapier than others,”
Nancy Pelosi said in disbelief
“It is almost impossible to believe that any political leader would suggest that any case of rape is ‘legitimate.’
So lets see the Malaysian scenario as reported by The news portal malaysiakini
The sessions court in the state of Penang spared a 22-year-old man from jail on finding him guilty of statutory rape of a 12-year-old girl.
The argument was that the 12-year-old girl has “consented” to the sexual act.
now the sessions court has set a dangerous precedent and coined a new phrase ” consensual statutory rape”…
Now we are able to see that both the countries have much in common….
lets move on to merdeka day celebrations ,
This years celebration are different from any other year, the coalition for free and fair elections BERSIH has actively expressed itself that they will be celebrating this merdeka day wearing yellow shirts.
All Malaysians are hoping for a better future with “CHANGE” … as what Obama said
CHANGE IS THE ONLY PERMANENT PHENOMENA
