Repeal All Repressive Laws

A total of nine bills, most notably the Anti-Fake News (Repeal) Bill 2018 and the Goods and Services Tax (Repeal) Bill 2018, were passed by the 14th Malaysian Parliament at its first sitting – which ended on Friday. 

That’s great – but what about the other laws which stifle, smother and suffocate our rights?

The Sedition Act 1948, the Prevention of Crime Act 1959 (POCA), the Universities and University Colleges Act 1971 (UUCA), the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 (PPPA), the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (SOSMA), and the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2015 (POTA) are the principal ones I'm referring to. 


In addition, the Pakatan Harapan federal government must introduce the Freedom of Information Act. 

To be sure, a loud cacophony of protestations can be expected if the above are being implemented. 

To the rightwingers who support these control tools of suppression – let me remind them that the PH government could easily have used SOSMA on Najib Razak. 

But they didn’t – instead, the former prime minister was charged in open court and free to appear in Parliament – which he did, and where he stood up to defend SOSMA! 

And today, he continues to raise great outcry over everything and anything. 

Najib (right) grunts the oinks of dissent and which are quickly followed by farts of fury – these bellyaching remonstrances are a sombre presage of pandemonium.

He aims for the country to be torn asunder. 

That’s the only way he knows how UMNO can return to power – and he hopes to ride on the crest of that illusionary victory. 

Empty vessels like him make the most noise. 

Perhaps that's why my ears are always red.

I’m fed up to my ears listening to this fellow, babbling baloney. His poppycock prattle pains my ears. And his damn dirges run amok around my brain, like a tone-deaf rat with a megaphone trapped inside my head. 

Najib Razak is an agitator. Period.

I wish he can teleport himself to Sungai Buloh. Now.

And if we put him in solitary confinement  we shall finally have peace at last. And only then can Malaysia move forward.
