Just for 'Love & Respect'

After threatening the rakyat with the National Anthem Act 1965, the Deputy Information Minister Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai has come out to retract on his earlier statements. He explained that the campaign to instil love and respect for the national anthem is aimed at making those feelings part of our culture and merely pointed out that the National Anthem Act 1965 provided for a fine of RM100 or one month’s jail for those who did not stand at attention when the national anthem was played. The fact still remains that 1) he threatened the rakyat with the Act, 2) it's a silly excuse, and 3) the whole thing is just a dumb idea. Get your act together and do something more beneficial for once!
