Those who disaagree with the 25 Malay former top civil servants’ open letter on Monday should pen a counter argument, not spout vitriol, Global Movement of Moderates chief executive officer Saifuddin Abdullah said: http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/283117
The open letter, which among others urges Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to show leadership against festering intolerance, has faced harsh criticism from right wing groups Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma) and Perkasa.
"There is no need to be like Isma who said the former civil servants are expired and should just go to mosques. This is not the Islamic way to disagree with others.
"There is also no need to be like Perkasa who asked what their contribution is to Malays. They have served the country and its people," Saifuddin said in a Facebook posting.
On his part, Saifuddin, who is also former deputy higher education minister said he agrees with the open letter.
"The content is very good," he said.
