Not My Believe

I have to say, this month I've done a lot of things that I didn't like to do but I had to do it as part of the job. I believe in the freedom of religion but I draw the line at having to help promote the views of a religion which is not of my own. It makes me very uncomfortable having to do it, but I understand, it's part of the picture and I do see the bigger picture but I don't know how long I can do that. It's starting to get to me. I try to divert away from it by doing other things or offering alternatives.

This year, there's very little coverage in the media on Deepavali. The size of the Indian population in Malaysia just doesn't attract the media's attention anymore, it's all on Hari Raya. I don't find this fair at all. I'll probably try to find ways in my part to promote Deepavali.

At first I had mixed feeling about this entry.. but then I tried to put myself in your shoes.. and it made sense..

I wouldn't want to promote beliefs other than mine too.. more complicated if it's your job and you have to do it.. but rest assure, cos the Quran says "There is no compulsion in religion (Islam)" [2:256].. carry on with your job, then go back to unwind in your own way..
