THE ongoing discourse on Bahasa Melayu has attracted many views. The social media has been hyperactive about the topic.
Some question why the use of Bahasa Melayu is not widespread in the country, and others ponder why it is not used in international meetings.
Many countries use their mother tongue. China uses Mandarin in international communique, India uses Hindi and France uses French.
The issue has often been raised. Lately, there has been intense debate with many people poking fun at some of our leaders who do not communicate well in English.
