Setting Up an Equal Opportunity / Harmony Reconciliation Commission
1A Bangsa Malaysia
There is a lack of an oversight body which oversees the issue of racial and religious discrimination in the country even though Malaysia is a multicultural and multiracial country.
Value(s) and Belief(s):
Everyone should be treated equally
Proposal of Solution:
Formation of an Equal Opportunity / Harmony Reconciliation Commission. This commission should include an independent council / committee which will be responsible in overseeing matters pertaining to racial and religious diiscrimination in Malaysia. They shall be empowered with a specific legislation (e.g., An Enabling Act / Comprehensive Anti-Discrimination Act) that allows the investigation of complaints of incidences of racial and religious discrimination, development of minimum standards to counter racial and religious discrimination, conducting national inquiries concerning the mistreatment of people on the basis of race and religion, making submissions about proposed laws, commenting in the media and raise public awareness on the issue of racial and religious discrimination.
