Unfortunately, not often where one would most like to find it. The best remark to come out of the latest shenanigans (Is he or isn’t he? Did he or didn’t he?) involving our one time Deputy P.M. was in the letters to the editor in The Star newspaper.
Writes one Sim Wee Lee of Kuala Lumpur:
“Instead of asking what Anwar did in his bedroom, we should be asking whether the government has the right to impose legislation concerning sex between consenting citizens of legal age in private.
As we aspire to become a developed nation, we have to improve on many aspects we find lacking – government transparency, freedom of the press and, lately, courteous taxi drivers – but nary a word has been said regarding our criminal code which still categorises sodomy as a criminal offence.”
Hooray for a bit of sanity, and someone who has the guts to go to the heart of the matter and put it in perspective.
