Peter: The headlines in malaysiakini, Malaysian leaders: Kuan Yew must apologise, really amused me. The leaders are asking for something which is out of line in their own practice.
There are umpteen times where our leaders, particularly Umno, had made derogatory remarks that are hurtful to the non-Malays, especially the Chinese. And yet they found it fit not to apologise.
The latest one being Hishammuddin Hussein Onn and Ong Tee Kiat, with the education minister accusing Ong of trying to be a champion for the Chinese community. Having proven that the school had been shortchanged in the repair work, Hishammuddin did not even utter a word of apology. Then Khairy made the infamous remark regarding the Chinese seeking to exploit the split within Umno. He, too, did not apologise to the Chinese community.
As far as I am concern, I have never come across any of our leaders ever apologising for obvious mistakes or remarks made. Thus, I do not see any reason why Lee Kuan Yew need to offer an apology for a remark that is too obvious.
