A man of of his words. That’s what i can say about the De Facto Law Minister. He was disappointed in the way the ISA was used against the likes of the journalist,RPK and Teresa who he does not feel were a apparent threats to the nation. He gave his word that if no action is taken that he will resign.
He did just that and tendered his resignation yesterday, he was called to the PM’s office and told to take a 2 week break to think about it and reports said that he has decided that he will be resigning of his cabinet position.
When asked if he would join PKR…His responce ..
he would keep an “open mind”
Time will tell
Home minister has warned that :
“The Government will invoke the Sedition Act against anyone who fans racial or religious sentiments during the 10-day Permatang Pauh by-election campaign”
Im not a fan of the ISA and i don’t think that its right for the Home Minister to say such things because it comes acrosss as threatening. Having said that, i applaud his concerns in ensuring that no racial tensions is sparked during the by-election campaign period.
There are definately many ways in ensuring nobody crosses certain lines but ISA?
A report form the Malaysian Insider quoted that if DSAI becomes the prime minister, Tun M would rather migrate. Its sad to hear this from the former pm who lead the country for such a long time and choose the wrong successor. I would think that Tun Dr M has got a part to play in the situation we are in today.
My parents always told me that you can sometimes do all the good in the world but the wrongs that you do, can come back to haunt you and potentially you could be remembered for that scar alone.
The part of the report that i don’t fully agree on is ->
He said Anwar was greedy enough for support that he would forsake the special privileges for his own race to cooperate with the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) which is filled with racism.
People on the street will be people on the street. You can have the best intentions in the world but if you don’t know how to control and position it right, it can easily be mis-interpreted. I personally dont think Hindraf is racist. I think the way Pakatan handles them is good, you cant always go against something just because you don’t believe in it. Hindraf isobbying the cause of their kind and other races have acknoledged that it is important. We live in a nation where one race well being will mean other races will benefit from it because reality is we are dependant on each other for out very existance.
What if Hindraf never came along? Would the nation seriously look at the plight of the group and their calls and addressed them?
What if you embraced their concerns,listen to them and reason and address those concerns?
Well..everyone is entitled to their opinion and my stand is, We Need A Better Malaysia for ALL and Malaysia should be for all!
PS- If a Chin-DRAF/Is-DRAF emerged and had solid grounds for their call, i’de support them too!
