LETTERS: We are expending our energy splitting hairs. The discussion on the compulsory use of Bahasa Malaysia in the civil service and elsewhere is a case in point.
Our nation is facing many economic and social challenges, so it would only seem logical to address these issues before we review our use of the national language.
Make no mistake. Bahasa Malaysia is our national language and it is used in education, courts, social environments and business.
The level of proficiency in Bahasa Malaysia has reached such a high level that it is often the language of choice even in non-official communication.
