Blogger wishes Merry Christmas with a heartwarming video
PETALING JAYA: With candles flickering in the dark, three men huddle together as they play a medley of famous Christmas carols from the sombre ‘Silent Night’ to the light-hearted ‘Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ and finally the joyous ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas.’
A common sight? Not really. The three men are actually classical Muslim sufi and gazal artistes playing on their sitars and tabla.
In an age of rising Muslim-Christian tensions abroad and very much so in Malaysia as well, this 1.45 minute commercial by Tata Sky, a direct broadcast satellite television provider in India, strives to promote peace and goodwill among the citizens of the world and says: “Don’t lose faith in humanity just yet.”
The video was uploaded by Firdaus Abdullah, former political editor of the News Straits Times on his blogsite Apanama, with a Christmas greeting going out to an “overwhelming majority” of Malaysians, who he says, “love each other irrespective of race, religion or colour.”
