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!
