RAJA PETRA KAMARUDIN to talk at the Cambridge University Southeast Asia Forum (CUSEAF)
For God, King and Racism
Date: 30th January 2013 (Wednesday)
Time: 5.30pm (GMT)
Venue: Mill Lane Lecture Room 4, Cambridge University
Religion, Race and Royalty are the ‘three Rs’ of Malaysian politics. Both sides of the political divide have played up the issue of race, religion and royalty to the hilt for more than 55 years since independence or Merdeka.
The March 8, 2008, general election was hailed as a watershed in Malaysian political history. Fast-forward five years and we are once again anticipating another general election. How has Malaysia changed, if at all?
Raja Petra will speak on the upcoming general election expected over the next two months or so, and on whether Malaysians are finally beginning to shift away from race and religion to focus on other substantive issues.
