During my last trip to Medan, one idea that seems to attract newspapers most was my argument on the dynamics of Muslim in Southeast Asia. I said at the Public Lecture of Universitas Medan Area that Indonesian Muslims possess knowledge, while Muslims in Brunei are bestowed with wealth, Malaysians with organisational expertise,  Singaporeans with brilliancy, and Thais and Phillipinos with bravery. If these are combined, Muslims in Southeast Asia would be able to create a forceful ummah, contributing to the peaceful development of the region. Below are some of the newspaper coverages on the idea.
