We need true and principled people to lead

IN the article “Ruling multiracial Malaysia” by June H.L. Wong (The Star, Aug 14), the writer has comprehensively outlined the do’s and dont’s of leaders in multiracial Malaysia.

Effectively, the writer is talking about the qualities of principle-centred leadership that are absolutely needed to bring peace, stability and prosperity to all Malaysians.

But, sadly, the leaders that we have today are far from being principle-centred.

On the contrary, most are self-centred and that is why we are now experiencing political, social and racial upheavals like never before!

In fact, we are exactly at the opposite and the wrong end of the spectrum.

Right now, we are mired in disagreement in educational policy, safety and security threats, religious bigotry, disparaging racial remarks, unhealthy politics, blasphemous and sacrilegious remarks and activities.

The sad thing is that this situation is unlikely to change anytime soon.

The good news is that everybody knows what to do to correct the situation but the bad news is that nobody wants to do it!

Only with the emergence of true and principle-centred leaders do we have any chance of realising our dreams of a truly stable, peaceful and prosperous Malaysia.
