Mr. Gwee, thank you so much for being an idiot yesterday. I am not sure why it is so hard for you to wear the official attire and a songkok. Previously, we have said before wearing a songkok is like wearing a cap only. It doesn’t turn you instantly into a Muslim and it also does not mean that you agree or support Islam. I have many Chinese friends who doesn’t mind wearing a baju Melayu or sari. Afterall, it’s just an attire and something you put on. If you take note of Xt. Saviers school band from Penang, their band uniform actually resembles a baju melayu and yet, the school’s name is St. Xavier, a school pioneered by Christian missionary. Try taking a walk and see how many people is wearing a necklace with a cross? Does that make them a Christian instantly?
Come on, as a people’s rep, we expect you to do more to serve people instead of making a big hoo-hah over this trivial matter. Since it’s an official attire for a function, what’s wrong with wearing them? I would have worn a baju Melayu if my malay friends invited me over to their wedding. In fact, i can confirm with you that i have friends who gathered together and wear baju Melayu, accompanied our friends throughout his wedding day, so what’s wrong with that? So Mr. Gwee, since you’re still immature, i guess it’s fitting that you did not deserve to wear the songkok and just sit together with the media. You got served!
