Malaysia a Bastardized Nation to the world thanks to BN
AS MALAYSIANS’ fear of deteriorating crime rate grows day by day, the
government of the day, that is Barisan Nasional (BN), continues with its
Instead of showing deep concern and care for public safety, the BN continues to deploy the police force personnel to clamp down on political rivals and dissent.
On the eve of Merdeka Day (Independence
Day) on Thursday (Aug 30, 2012), when all Malaysians proudly declared
their pride and loyalty to the country, the BN government misuses and
abuses the power of the police to clamp down on public dissent, so much for independence and freedom of speech.
The BN government does not realise that its mindless use of the police
to clampdown on national laureate A. Samad Said for reciting a poem on Merdeka eve tantamount to ridiculing Malaysia as a pariah state globally.
This is a quote from an internet news portal: “PDRM (Royal Malaysian
Police), it’s not a crime to disagree with BN. I think PDRM has to get
their brains checked.”
I like the quote but I do not think it is accurate. The police don’t
need to get its brains checked. It is the BN government, led by the fake
1Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his deputy, Muhyiddin
‘Malay First Malaysian Second’ Yassin, who need the brain scans.
Shameless abuse of power
The police, like all other government enforcement agencies, and
including the judiciary, are under the influence and control of BN-Umno
(United Malays National Organisation) which has ruled Malaysia for 55
Instead of investigating a national laureate for reciting a poem on the
eve of Independence Day, the time and manpower can be put to better use
to help reduce crime.
But, to Najib and Muhyiddin, that is not so. Anyone or party that do not agree with BN, it is a crime.
However, there is still hope for Malaysians to pull themselves out of the rot.
Despite an eleventh hour police declaration that the Janji Demokrasi (Democracy Promise) gathering on the eve ofMerdeka is illegal, some 10,000 Malaysians turned up in yellow tee-shirts to defy and display their displeasure, swamping Merdeka Square (Independence Square).
This time around, the police did not use force – chemical-laced water cannons and tear-gas canisters – on theMerdeka Day celebrants.
At least there is still that pea bit of brains left in the police and
the government not to blatantly expose its shameless abuse of power on
the rakyat (people).
People matured but not the government of the day
To me, what the world witnessed, and without doubt, is the maturity of Malaysians of all races today – that they can gather peacefully in public for a cause if there is no violence or agitation from the BN-led police.
As long as Malaysians - especially the Malays, Chinese and Indians –
continue to be united and not swayed by the seditious racial and
religious slurs spewed by the evil Umno-BN and its cohorts, we have hope
to pull the nation out of the doldrums for a new dawn.
