Racial harmony??

I read with disbelief the caption for the photo of Eurasian president, Edward D’silva, and volunteer Maureen Westerhout, purporting to be dressed up in “traditional Malay garb” which appeared on Page B4 of the Aug 4 Straits Times.

If I were a Malay I would be most insulted. Since when do Malay women cover their heads with a head scarf made from a newspaper?

Even as a non-Malay, I, too, feel insulted!
