Datuk Johari Umno supreme council member is absolutely right in pin-pointing that we need to dig deep into our consciousness and decipher from where this inferiority complex has crept into the veins of our society.There are people struggling to sort out their inner world for a meaningful life, while others are trying to hold together a damaged relationship, or are trying to raise consciousness in society, change the political system, save our planet and create universal brotherhood. The journey is daunting and often people give up.The argument that’s given usually is that one is too small to bring a change. But no one is too small and no problem is beyond them.

Now imagine a small section of Muslims lin PAS , who claim to share Islam, spreading hate and violence.

It’s not moderate Muslims’ fault fundamentalist Islamic organisations have sent tremors round the world. As a scared world dissects the causes and tries to find solutions, many stress the role of the ‘moderate Muslim’, or educated and modern Muslims who have kept quiet or not spoken up enough in all this.However, it isn’t as simple.
