The Minister of Health's latest obsession against anti-vaxxers is perplexing. It was Khairy, Adham Baba and Noor Hisham who early in the stage of the pandemic announced vaccine is not compulsory, but voluntary.
Apparently, the government's interpretation of voluntary is to systematically discriminate against those refusing vaccine by cutting off access to almost all normal daily needs. It reached the point of denying non-vaccinated teachers the human rights to make a living and at the receiving end of open harrassment from superiors and educational authorities, disallowed access in the school, and restricted them to online teaching.
The government's argument is typical of the one used to justify ISA during Mahathir's era. It is guised as protecting the health interest of the so-called 90% vaccinated. Its quite a common Malaysian habit to apply political narrative to non-political matter albeit health.
