    well meant or otherwise

    No-one was bothered that Ismail was a Malay Muslim and we were Indian Hindus we just accepted our differences. Perhaps, the elders of our time had not filled our heads with unnecessary advice, well meant or otherwise.

    What does "well-meant or otherwise" mean?


    Thanks

    Look up "well-meant" and "otherwise" in a dictionary. If you still have problems understanding, come back and ask again.
