The Confusion that is Malaysia
We strive for certain objectives but we make it unnecessarily difficult for us to achieve the objectives. The classic example is the wish of almost every Muslim parent to have religion abiding children. On top of the Islamic classes at school we send them to extra Islamic schools in the morning or in the afternoon depending on when their regular schooling session is. Coming back from overseas it surprised me that even my two preschool children are offered the option of extra Islamic classes in the afternoon after they have finished their regular school in the morning. It so obvious we wish to imbibe adequate religious knowledge and etiquette in our children so they do not go astray as they approach teenage and adulthood.
