Sajak or Sahaja?

Raja Ahmad Aminullah, poet, writer

27-Aug-18 14:00

Sajak or Sahaja?

For Raja Ahmad Aminullah, words are a means to resist. What is the point of poetry, he asks, if it isn’t to question the injustices of the world? As Malaysia prepares to celebrate its first Merdeka Day under a new government, we speak to Raja Ahmad about his latest books - both poetry and prose - and why it is essential for writers to continue questioning the system.
