On 7 October, Syed Saddiq’s brand new political party, Muda, launched #PauseMalaysia, a campaign urging politicians to ceasefire and focus on the people. However, the reaction towards the campaign was divisive, with many saying that now is the time to fight back, not pause.
BFM speaks to Bridget Welsh, honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham’s Asia Research Institute, to discuss the messaging of the campaign and the pros and cons of a political ceasefire.
