Kemenangan Malek Husin: HAPUSKAN ISA

 malek.jpg

Malek ditahan di bawah ISA pada 25 September 1998 selepas berhimpun dalam satu perhimpunan aman reformasi di hadapan Masjid Negara. Dalam samannya ke atas kerajaan, Malek menyatakan bahawa polis telah menderanya secara mental dan fizikal dalam penahanannya di bawah ISA. Dalam keterangannya bagi kes samannya itu Malek juga menyatakan di telah ditampar, ditendang dan ditumbuk selain penderaan seksual.

Keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur pada 18 Oktober yang menetapkan bahawa kerajaan perlu membayar RM2.5 juta sebagai gantirugi kepada bekas tahanan Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA), Malek Husin membuktikan bahawa penggunaa ISA perlu segera dimansuhkan. MANSUH! MANSUH! MANSUH!

    salam ladymariah,

    ada beberapa ketidakadilan yang wujud di dalam institusi perundangan kita…bukan sahaja isa, tetapi harus dilhat kes-kes lain yang tidak mampu dihadapi oleh mangsa kerana tiada pengaruh, wang, saluran aduan, serta bukti kukuh.

    Kalau dilihat pada kaedah reman juga, walau ada baik nya, tetapi ia akan memberi ketidak adilan kepada mereka yang tidak bersalah..mereka ini awal-awal lagi sudah di hukum di lokap-lokap…dan menerima layanan seperti penjenayah biasa…malang bukan….

    Salam kemnbali untuk dekerinchi…
    Saya percaya, mentaliti orang kita mesti dah set bahawa terdapat orang-orang tertentu (golongan VIP) yang akan mendapat pengecualian dalam hukuman dari mahkamah dan juga mungkin tindakan dari pihak keselamatan. Namun golongan-golongan yang berada di pihak berlawanan pula sangat mudah untuk diambil tindakan sebelum diketahui kebenarannya.
    Dalam situasi tahanan reman pula, apa yang dekerinchi cakap itu memang betul kerana saya mengalaminya sendiri. Ibaratnya undang-undang itu milik mereka. Kalau setakat lokap, mungkin sudah menjadi perkara biasa tetapi apa yang berlaku kepada saya, sebelum dibicarakan saya sudahpun dihantar ke penjara. Alasan mereka, penjaga lambat membayar ikat jamin.

    It is blatantly obvious to everybody except Umno gangs. That is because they are corrupted, suffering from denial syndrome, low IQ and living in the past. They would rather see and prefer the nation going to the dogs than having meritocracy and doing away with NEP.

    Otherwise, how does one explain the rot and malaise this country is suffering?

    I think if Lee Kuan Yew is given a free reign to govern Malaysia for just a single term, Malaysia will double its GDP, poverty will be cut by 50%, corruption will spiral down and our jail will be filled with Tun, Tan Sri and Datuk.

    Of course it is just a dream but what a nightmare Malaysians are now suffering!

    Badawi telling people to speak the truth is like an ugly woman asking her husband to tell her the truth about her looks. Any husband worth his salt would know you are asking for trouble if you listen to her.

    And that is the problem, Badawi is not only similarly inconsistent, he is behaving similarly womanly, indulgent, poor in leadership, spoilt by the comforts of establish rule and structure, and still wanting more but not willing to pay the price, yet still think other people should do more and owe them more, i.e. entitlement.

    It is given Badawi is not the leader to oversee great changes but rather a caretaker. The best Malaysians can hope for is that he does not mess things up worst than his predecessor would have.

    And there is one danger that he will leave a legacy that could be abused worst than his predecessor by sheer inertia. By entrenching the elected Sultanate system, he puts in danger the possibility of abuse by the truly ambitious. All it takes is someone mediocre but more ambitious and we would end up a basket case.

    Everything else that Badawi does is irrelevant whether good or not.

    We have descended into contempt and chaos, looking at other races suspiciously, no matter what the politicians want us to believe. I feel sad that we did not build on what our founding fathers left for us, and for the divisive lives we had got into, and that we are literally at each others throats.

    I sometimes see these with anger and sometimes with despair that what we could have been but never did. My reflections these days seem to throw my hands up and remark that we, as Malaysians, have lost.

    To claim that we are proud to be Malaysians rings very hollow in my ears, as we are not. We have grown to be racists, from the ruler and the prime minister to the average man on the street. The exceptions are too few to be recognised.

    The day the leader of the country is able to stand for and convince us that he is not a racist, that is the day this country will move forward.

    It could be an elusive dream during my lifetime, as what we all had were racist politicians polluting the average man’s mind for their own political expediency, except for the first prime minister, but write to anyone heart and content, we are not going to be a developed nation as these people keep saying now and then, as what you sow so shall you reap and that time will set the clock back.

    Anyway who cares! We all live in a world of pretence as if everything is ok but time will tell whether I am right even though deep inside me I would wish otherwise.

    We are about 13 years away from the supposedly dream of attaining the developed nation status and as the word implies, it could well end up as a dream after the hype and ho hah. When we have an education system which is not only lagging far behind but very, very politicised and with a “trial and error” guinea pigs that we have become, it is all talk and talk.

    The prime minister talks but these days very few believe anything he has to say. Maybe there has been a revolution indeed that he promised – just that I did not or could not see it.

    After all, he had the audacity to claim that he had done a great deal to arrest corruption. I must have been sleeping because I did not see it. Multitudes of projects are just being dished out without any tenders and we have gone down further on the corruption index.

    Of course, nothing what we write here will ever reach those politicians because they have proven us wrong over and over again by being voted in election after election and they continue with their lethargic and complacent attitude as ever.

    We are a divided nation, more so by religion these days than by any other reasons. While we fight, our neighbours rejoice. The sorry state of affairs will continue.

    A recent survey showed that people have the least trust in politicians. I was surprised that there need to be a survey to find that out as the word “crooked” has become synonymous with politicians, from the top to the bottom.

    Most universities of developed nations are autonomous and although we have private universities, which are nothing more than money-making institutions, the quality of education is very pathetic indeed.

    From the top to the bottom, it is “tidak apa” all the way. A small nation to the south with no known natural resource has placed itself comfortably in the economic world but we have “half-past-six” (just borrowed from Mahatir) people handling the government and its agencies with almost predictable results of losses. Are we going to sleep forever? Are we supposed to be proud?

    You talk to the monkeys in parliament, they behave more like “samseng” than elected representatives and such people are walking our parliament house.

    How, can we expect our children to be decently educated when these people continue behaving like circus monkeys? Instead of trying to get the races together, these are simply exploits to create animosity.

    Even the way they explained the merits on the university selection was very off the mark – we all could see that they were lying through their teeth – and they too know that they are lying but they just do it.

    I am tempted to say they are just dreaming – daydreaming. Mahatir tried for 22 years and failed and he is supposed to be one of those intelligent prime minsters but he dealt and approached with almost racially blurred eyes. Those before him also failed.

    They have created a substandard species of walking zombies in Malaysia who will either nod up and down or right and left. The will was never there and it will never be. Just make hay while the sun shines – grab as much as you can as if you don’t, others will. May the Creator has mercy on this country.

    Malaysia is slowly and surely turning into a very sick place. We must finish off Umno and its cronies to cure the country from this acute sickness.

  9. soulof99 says:

    Yeah.. Mansuhkan ISA..!

  10. honyang says:

    I think most of us Malaysians know the country is rotting to its core for the last few decades. It only takes a Michael Backman to confirm it.

    Such a pity this country could have been a 1st world country like Singapore but had to be misgoverned by a bunch of crooks using misguided policies for their own ends.

    It looks like the country hasn’t reach rock bottom yet and it is going to get a lot worse before it get any better.

    Local companies are moving away, rich peoples are moving their money elsewhere and the country’s top brains are simply draining away. Our leaders are still happily plundering the country’s wealth regardless of everything else.

    Our future is bleak, very bleak indeed.

  11. vesewe says:

    Hisham decidedly subdued speech to Umno Youth at the party’s recent general assembly was in mark contrast to his racist histrionics of last year. This showed one thing: even these morons in Umno are teachable after all.

    We know that morons are slow learners, but then as we have seen even Umno morons are teachable. We just have to repeat the lessons more often, and increasing the punishment more severe each time they regress or forget their earlier lessons.

    My objective as a committed cyberspace commentator is to make that rouge gallery bigger. I will not be satisfied nor will I stop, until that gallery has the country’s biggest rogue included in its rooster.

    Any comment on the Malaysia education scene which does not address the blatant racial (and religious) discrimination practised in Malaysia – which places it next to South Africa (of before) as the only country in the world which has established institutionalised and legal racism – and its demeaning, destructive and evil force, is nothing more than a apology in praise of such racism.

    Sad to say, there has been too much tinkering with the national education system on a partisan basis.

    Umno has from the very beginning been committed to make malay the national language, malay as the medium of instruction in schools and turning everybody else into “Melayu” – assimilation rather than integration, i.e. playing politics with its national education system, playing to the demands of a narrow form of nationalism.

    Someone said that non-malays don’t like it, well let me say that when malays with Cs are refused places in universities etc, and non-malays with As are given entry, then I would praise any malay who also enters with As and be thoroughly pleased with it.

    Need I go on about those idiot malay contemporaries of mine who got into university with Ds, and I could not with all my As. How decent malays can stomach this is beyond me.

    And one writes on Malaysia education as if a Malaysia version of “Apartheid” does not exist in Malaysia. Sick!

    I am sick of third class malays (with third class brains) parading as if they have brains. They don’t!

    The Malaysia state is the racist state. It is the state that is largely responsible for the present state of affairs in the country. Not only is non-malays denied space and discriminated in the cultural and religious realms, they are also victimised by the state.

    Today, non-malays are discriminated in employment and promotion in the public sector, their children are denied important academic disciplines in the universities while the NEP requirements has made it difficult for non-malays to obtain contracts and licenses from the state.

    Moorthy’s case is not an isolated one. It provides an important barometer to gauge the character and nature of Malaysia society. Moorthy’s corpse would have been returned to his wife had there been racial and religious equality for the non-malays.

    But alas, despite all the propaganda, Malaysia practices neither democracy nor human rights. A kind of apartheid thinking has developed amongst those who control and manage the society.

    Someone said that we need snoop squads because we don’t want people to degrade Islam and paint it a bad light. Actually if you want us not to degrade Islam – stop bombing and killing in the name of Islam; stop adultery, child abuse, divorce, drug taking, prostitution, rampant incest, rape and all the ills of a low grade society – that thrives more in “Islamic” society in Malaysia than any other.

    Then you might not degrade Islam – which any non-Muslim (if put through a lie detector test) in Malaysia has only disdain, disgust and disrespect for.

    And do you think we like to complain? There is so much fun that we complain for the sake of it? Do you think it is fun to have your own government treat you like a second class citizen?

    If you see non-malays as a threat that you need to make them second class citizens and yourselves first class citizens, then I can truly tell you, there is no hope for this country as a multi-racial society.

    How multi-racial Malaysia ends, whether via secession of the east Malaysia states, the vast exodus of non-malays who are able to emigrate and probably the rest will seek refugee status or unfortunately, forced to remain behind because they have no other options but to continue their existence as second class citizens.

    It becomes a dysfunctional society because in healthy countries, everyone is treated the same. It is end will come, it is just a matter of when, and I think more and more people are beginning to realize this – they can feel it their bones.

  13. San says:

    Each time I read such comments, it always makes me feel how lucky I am to out of Malaysia.

    Emigration is not for everybody but those who have done so, ultimately feel highly rewarded in terms of the future for themselves and their kids. Imagine them growing in an environment devoid of racial, ethnic and religious discrimination.

    More importantly, they are now exposed to a wider community that embraces multiculturism, meritocracy, fair go and personal freedom. Guess which group will be better equipped to face the future challenges in this world?

  14. julee says:

    This country has racist laws that discriminate against minority citizens. Over the last 3 decades the discrimination has gotten from bad to worse.

    The policies of this government reminds us of South Africa’s apartheid days which was condemned by all humanity.

    I wonder how these racists can reconcile their actions with the tenets of their religion.
