(The wrong people caught under ISA. Image source: TheStar)
This Government is getting ridiculous by the minutes…
What started with RPK, was continued with Tan Hoon Cheng and Teresa Kok – from theStar:-
Malaysia Today news portal editor Raja Petra Kamarudin, Seputeh MP Teresa Kok and Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng were arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA) here and in Penang.
The first person to be picked up was Raja Petra, 58, from his house in Sungai Buloh near here, followed by Tan, 32, who was arrested from her house in Bukit Mertajam, Penang. Teresa, 43, was detained at 11.20pm as she was on her way home in a car.
Whilst most of us understand the intensity of using ISA against Raja Petra (although it is not justified), it looks outright stupid to use the same against Tan & Kok. What they did for the Government to arrest them under ISA? Did Tan Hoon Cheng utter the “penumpang” in a political rally in the last by-election? Did Teresa Kok admit that she was all-arms up for silencing the azan in the state? The answer is a big NO!
The buggers who committed the act are still free just because they are from UMNO – nothing more, nothing less. And what the police are doing on the multiple police reports against Ahmad Ismail and Khir Toyo? Going to stamp it as “No Case”? If there is someone to be caught under ISA, it is Ahmad Ismail and Khir Toyo and not Tan Hoon Cheng & Teresa Kok.
It’s a clear move to silence the voices that oppose the Government and the Government is scrubbing salt on the wound by punishing the wrong people. I guess it is just a matter of time before we share the same boat with renegade countries like Myanmar and Zimbabwe.
Are the other component parties in BN going to support the madness that UMNO is creating with such lunacy acts? Shame on MCA, MIC, Gerakan and others if they choose not do anything and stand aside and allow the country to get messier. What’s next, martial law? More ISA arrests?
Read the very important message from The People’s Parliament:-
Then, we send messages out to everyone we know and who trust us and tell them the same. BN is going to try and cause trouble so please stay calm and do not react.
Yes, remain calm and rationale all times, no matter what is the provocation – we do not want to end up acting irrationally like the stooges at Putrajaya
