Arah Tuju – first Malaysian single dedicated to death row inmates

In this music video, Santesh Kumar expresses what it is like to be a prison inmate who has repented and desires to be given a second chance by the justice system and society.

The single is presented by Sebaran Kasih, an NGO that is dedicated to championing mercy and forgiveness for all death row inmates, as well as the welfare of all marginalised groups in our society.
