Zeinab Badawi speaks to Malaysia’s Minister for Islamic Affairs Mujahid Yusof Rawa.
Malaysia has one of Asia’s most vibrant economies – the result of decades of stability and economic growth. It is also a multi-ethnic, multi-religious federation – but the majority ethnic Muslim Malays dominate the country politically.
Are racial and religious divides threatening Malaysia’s stability and future prospects? There is growing concern that such tensions have been getting worse since a new government took office last year.
