First, our Raja Petra Kamaruddin was arrested, now more arrest are coming up in the Umno latest agenda. Another Ops Lalang is on its way.
Desperate to cover up the embarrassment on its own racist tag, the Umno-led federal government yesterday unleashed its revenge on the people and the entire nation with the much hated Internal Security Act (ISA) detention plans.
Sin Chew Daily report Tan Hoon Cheng was detained at her house last night for her report on former Bukit Bendera Umno division chief Ahmad Ismail’s racist statement during the by-election in Permatang Pauh.
Hoon Cheng, the award winning journalist who had much experience in her field was arrested instead of the real perpetrator of these racist remarks, Ahmad Ismail. A case of protecting their own Umno people from being prosecuted!!!!The other reporters, Kelvin Lee of Guang Ming Daily and Tan Ming Xao of Nanyang Siang Pau who were also together with Hoon Cheng as witnesses to Ahmad Ismail’s racist statement went into hiding to avoid arrest from the police special branch.
Selangor State Executive Councillor and DAP National Organizing Secretary Teresa Kok was also detained late last night based on an accusation from Selangor Umno chief Dr Mohd Khir Toyo and Utusan Malaysia press that she had instigated a residents’ petition against a mosque’s azan, which she had no knowledge of nor involve with.
In this case again, the real perpetrators Dr Mohd Khir Toyo and Utusan Malaysia escaped and Teresa was made a scapegoat and victim. Another Umno leader is protected like this!!!Umno leaders and members who were wrong in their actions and had created chaos in situations with racist jargons and hatred were all immune and above the law because of their special privileges and powers. They were all immune because they are Umno leaders holding powerful positions in the party.
Chaos, Chaos in the entire Nation!!! In order to curb the increasing influence of the oppositions and the people’s discontent over the Umno’s upholding its racist tag, the Umno-led federal government had resorted to such a low-class tactic in order to put fear on the population and to divert the truth away from the public’s attention.
So why are MCA, Gerakan, PPP, SUPP, SAPP, etc are still in the BN to serve as running dogs for Umno? Where are their conscience and humanities?
We must Change the entire situation before it is too late.
