The Malaysia That Could Be

Straits Times Press

Regular price $35.00 SGD

The Malaysia That Could Be tells of one man’s belief in his country – and how it can be so much more than what it is today. In this compilation of columns from the New Sunday Times in Malaysia, Dato’ Seri Kalimullah reminisces the Malaysia of yesteryear when ordinary Malaysians lived modestly and harmoniously together. He bemoans the decline in ethnic and religious tolerance in recent times, amidst a rise of rhetoric of racism and bigotry. 

Having been friends with former Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi since 1980, and part of the team who helped with Abdullah’s speeches at the annual Umno General Assembly, Kalimullah also gives an insider’s view of Abdullah’s years in power and the events which led to his resignation.
