Malaysia - Now In Silence!


Pak Lah is clamping down on websites and local publications that have been alleged to raise seditious issues deemed detrimental to the interests of the nation.
In a lightning move, Raja Petra Kamaluddon or RPK as more popularly referred to. was arrested this afternoon under S73(1) of the ISA for allegedly bringing a threat to security, peace and public order.
In another stunning hit-out, also in this afternoon, the government asked Sin Chew Daily, The Sun and Suara Keadilan to show cause over their news coverage on a number of political issues.
Pak Lah is obviously getting high-handed to ask rakyat ro shut up on the so- called sensitive issues.
After Pak Lah took office, he exhibited to be more liberal in giving access to information which was a relief. For one thing, I have been receiving my foreign journals more timely.
This is really a websphere era where information has no boundaries. The move by blacking out information may have taken Malaysia a few steps backwards!
Malaysians may foresee the coming of an age of suppressed silence with the official trumpets in the blowing only!

Tony, can you inform your BTC (didn't study in hokkien) home minister that my life is under threat in oversea and see whether he can bring me to bukit ping-an (aman) for protection under ISA?

What a shame for a minister to give this kind of lame excuses...
