Malaysian Insider reports,
There is already enough protest about bringing religion into politics but what about bringing politics into a house of worship? Can we then say that what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander?
The DAP and party leaders should leave matters in the hands of the voters, not make a religious affair by going to a house of worship. The country is polarised enough that such a show only drives the wedge further in.
For a political leader like Lim Guan Eng, this would open himself to a charge of opportunism when his spouse does it, even privately and not connected to the party.
At the end of the day, if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) and Lim believe they have done a good job in Penang, they should have trust in the voter and not speculate that bookies will have an influence in the results.
Keep the faith, but leave it out of politics. And leave politics out of religion.
