Every year, without fail our nation as a Muslim country, celebrates the Celebration Day of Fasting grandly after the Ramadhan month ends. Apart from celebrating the end of fasting, the Syawal month also serves as an opportunity to reconcile and renew relationship with others. This celebration had played a pertinent role even for the non-muslims in our country like me. Well, I for one really enjoy Malay food. We can see non-Muslim throng to the Ramadhan bazaar mostly everywhere in the country. We feasted altogether as Msian under one big roof in our Muslim friends’ open house too.
However lately, many things had happen in our country which had affected the pillar of strength which had brought us here today -unity. Bigotry and extremism from the cow-head incident, throwing down a poor boy from a building, politics instability over certain free trade issues and sacking ppl, endless corruptionsss,caning…are turning our nation’s progress and development to backward. It had caused not only domestic outcry, but international as well. Its turning into sad situation but well in some other way- it may be entertaining at times.
I am leaving for vacation tmr, yes finally!! And just before i leave, i would like to wish all my Muslim friends
‘Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, and Maaf Zahir Dan Batin”
I know i am bit early. But let’s hope this holy month of Ramadhan will end, celebrating the Syawal month as a peace heed for our on-going issues =)
