Can we rise above hate speech?


Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

There has been a surge in hate speech in our country since and during the general election, with various groups calling for political parties to help with relieving tension.

How did racial and religious hate speech become so deeply entrenched in our politics, and what can be done to undo the deep-seated effects it has had on the country?

And what role should the authorities play in relieving tensions that have flared post elections? BFM explores the issues with Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (Abim) president Faisal Aziz and Article 19 senior officer Nalini Elumalai.

There are so many laws but without any action to curb all these hate speeches, these perpetrators would become bolder and bolder!
