  • Both men have their legacy. Anwar in fact has a bigger one to fufill on the world stage. He has to lead Intellectual Islam..He is one person that can argue for Islam to open up to the world for their full potential. It will put him and Malaysia a global player in world affairs.

    • In a real world politic and religion do not mix. A politician mind if too deeply in the state of religion will not make a pragmatic approach to governance. Religious calling are usually prejudicial and overide a rational and logical approach. While in office It is better to keep the religion in the pocket and embrace it back home.
