    Karpal Singh was so many things but it will likely be he will be remembered for his opposition to Islamic state and Hudud.

    This country still has no grasp of its role in what is essentially the forefront of the “clash of civilization” – the issue of Islamic statism. The world is grappling with the fundamental issues and especially in the West who has had to confront the issue are breaking new grounds of understanding and debate and we, despite the fact we have long experience and knowledge and our very existence and future depends on it, are mere followers of trends and debate rather than participants.

    Karpal should have time and given the opportunity to participate in the debate on world stage – he would have made us proud. But alas, he leaves us right when not only when we still needed him, the world could use his intellect and insight.

    Yes, the man was a giant but the burden remain on us to live up to his legacy..

    No one is indispensable. When your Creator thinks that you have done the work that He has given, then it is time to go home. Even if the people around need him. The people might think he has so much to do but his Creator thinks he has done what needed to be done. The rest the next strong person will take over. If you keep on hoping on him alone, the next strong person will remain a weak person. And when you fight, you must know what you are fighting. No simply throwing your fist around. It is one thing to say you are not afraid. It is another to know what you are fighting.
