Malaysian Blogger Detained

| Filed under: Politik

blogger.jpg

A controversial Malaysian blogger named Raja Petra Kamaruddin has been detained for criticizing the Malaysian government and 'insulting' Islam.

And, as if that weren't troubling enough, the blogger is going to be locked up - without a trial - for TWO YEARS!

His wife told the media, "(Police) said my husband has been sent to Kamunting this morning and that he will remain there for two years with no trial. This is the worst news I can receive but we will keep fighting for his release."

The blogger's attorney said the government had pulled a "mean, dirty trick" by issuing the detention order the night before a scheduled court hearing on Tuesday to secure his release. "The government can now hide behind a veil of secrecy because they do not have to disclose reasons for detaining him."

God bless America.

We always give thanks for the freedom we have to speak our mind!

  16. 16

    Oh Lord that is really messed up when you are not allowed to say what you think! Even though most say that we have freedom of speech in America, is not really true, how many people have been fired from TV and radio just becaused they said what they think?

    God Bless America? You airhead!

    You can't possibly be so ignorant as to believe the USA isn't the biggest perpetrator of this type of "justice", can you? Then again, I guess you are.

    I'm a Malaysian and this is a sad day for Malaysians who believe in freedom of speech.

    Don't let this fool you though. It's all political. The Internal Securities Act under which he was detained under is an archaic tool used by the govt to shut up the more vocal citizens now. It's purpose was for communists in the 50s-60s but now it's used on frickin citizens!!

    We're turning into a dictatorship despite the fact the govt "claims" to be democratic.

    :(



  22. 22

    "God bless America"?? Yeah, except that the exact same thing happens here!!! Hello, Guantanamo Bay??? Patriot Act????

    Re: marke73

    Oh hell yea we kill Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Emo kids etc on a daily basis. That's why over 40% of the population are non-muslims. We can't let the non-Muslims breed!!!!11!!!omg!!!wtf!!eleventeen!!11!!!!

    /sarcasm if idiots don't get it.



  29. 29

    Perez, do you really think this stuff doesn't happen in America? Guantanamo is just the tip of te iceberg.



  30. 30

    Reading upsetting stories like this reinforces the relief I have that I live in America. Yeah, we may have presidents who make decisions we don't believe in, a crappy healthcare system and financial woes…but at least we aren't being imprisoned for the things we say. And Americans always get a trial, regardless if they are 100% guilty or not. People got kicked off the radio for saying things that are upsetting for some races and the only reason why is to set an example that racism would not be tolerated, especially after all that black people went through. I do believe that everyone can say what they want and when they want but I guess the US has to be on the safe side for some subjects.

    you said it perez. God bless America for sure!! dayum we are fortunate



  35. 35

    OH PLEASE PEREZ. What about those being held in Guantanamo Bay without trial? It's no different from the Internal Securities Act which is the act that Petra is being held under. And to Marke73, you are an ignorant fool. Over 40% of our citizens are of different races and religions. This might shock you, but Christians aren't the only ones who accept other people regardless of religion, color, background, whatever.

    I am sad to say though that Malaysia? We are turning into China.

    Re: reblandroid – According to the Population and Housing Census 2000 figures, approximately 60.4 percent of the population practiced Islam; 19.2 percent Buddhism; 9.1 percent Christianity; 6.3 percent Hinduism; and 2.6 percent traditional Chinese religions. The remaining was accounted for by other faiths, including Animism, Folk religion, Sikhism and other faiths while 1.1% either reported as having no religion or did not provide any information [58] [59]. Historically, a community of adherents to Judaism had resided in Malaysia. The Jewish community in Malaysia today is estimated to number less than 100.[60]

    Re: PervezH – you are right. I might know that they take away a bloggers freedom of speech. I will take my ass out of Kentucky, if you take your head out of your ass. Try google and see what you come up with!



  44. 44

    After reading several comments here, I need to respond.

    The new, young breed of American "America Haters" really sickens me. The United States is far from perfect, but at least we *try* to create a fair & just society.
    It does not take a genius to see that Muslim-dominated governments and theocracies are the harshest, most repressive forms of rule in the entire world. The United States government, while (unfortunately) influenced by the Religious Wrong, has instituted checks and balances to prevent our society from devolving into completely a regressive & repressive, pre-enlightened religious-based world.

    Praise be to Allah, girlfriend.



  45. 45

    This is 2008, this kind of oppression has no place in the world… why, how cruel.



  46. 46

    Freedom of speech is priceless. Appreciate it.

    Re: B-to-the-Rad

    you gotta do the research before you say something like that.

    as for mr kamaruddin i cant believe i am seeing something like that in the news today. opinion is what makes us human. this cant be happening, and something must be done

    Re: marke73 – I'd rather you stayed there, to be honest. You epitomise all that's stupid about America.

  58. 58

    Uh, Perez…I love you, I really do. But the US detains people without trial all the time. A large percentage of the prisoners at Guantanamo are being held without trial, because of the bs laws that your government made up after 9/11.



  59. 59

    Ya Perez, god bless America where you can speak your mind UNLESS YOU ARE THE DIXIE CHICKS or anyone else who does not support the blind leading the stupid into war! Go to one of your political convensions and ask some hard questions about 9/11 and who really blew those buildings up and see just how long you have your free speach. Wake up.



  64. 64

    Why are Muslims so fanatical about their religion? If England or Scotland jailed everybody who was critical of the Church of England or Presbyterianism, there wouldn't be anybody walking the streets in those countries.
    So many Muslims are haters, and I don't understand why.



  65. 65

    Re: bunsen b – We're not haters, we're just very passionate about our religion and it's very sacred to us & anyone insulting it deserves everything he gets!! dis guy is getting off way too easy



  66. 66

    do u really know what the blogger wrote to get himself detained? and do u know what consequences are if they just let him did what he did?

    i agree that the internal securities act sometimes is used unnecessarily, but i dont think this is the case now.

    the u.s.a is no better than malaysia, it is even worse! terrorizing other people's countries and thereby killing innocents! so don't go being proud of your country!



  67. 67

    I'm Malaysian as well, and it's painful to see that RPK is being detained for speaking the truth. Really, this is all politically motivated. The ISA is being used as a tool to shut people up. It was even used on a journalist who was merely quoting a politician that made racist comments.

    Yes, it is outrageous that the Internal Security Act is being utilized so lackadaisically. But, we are NOT a communist country, contrary to popular belief and we do not kill Christians or people of other religions. I'm a Buddhist and I'm still alive, aren't I? In fact, an extremely large majority of us are accepting of other races/religions. It's just a small minority and the ignorance of others that make Malaysians appear "uncivilized" and such.

    To those who made racist comments here, do your research before saying anything that would make you sound incredibly unintelligent.



  68. 68

    Re: Mrs Chace Crawford – I actually, personally believe that RPK was not saying anything to insult Islam,at all. It was all a political decision to put away a brave man so that the government will not be ridiculed by Raja Petra's wit and wisdom on a daily basis. He had bombarded them relentlessly exposing their lack of logic and utter incompetence. This is what they want to stop. This is what they want to prevent desperately. It has nothing to do with the religion, so people should just stop making it sound like it is.

    Re: bunsen b
    It's not the religion. The problem lies with the people who misinterpret it.

    Except that the American people have given up more freedoms/civil rights in the last 7 years than they have in the previous 40. Enjoy it while it lasts guys, your corporate police state is just around the corner.



  71. 71

    I'm Malaysian as well, and its sad to see how they abuse our "Freedom Of Speech". Our nation does consists of alot of non-Muslims, funny how we all as a society live in harmony, no racial discrimination whatsoever. My bestfriend's a Muslim, and I'm Catholic, and no, they don't kill us. Blergh, its starts small, these issues keep getting bigger and bigger. Raja Petra has done nothing but be honest. "/ ABOLISH THE I.S.A.!!

    he sucks anyway!!!
    go convert u ass!
    perez, dont defend this dude…u know nothing about malaysian politics
    this is one ungrateful s.o.b.
    i dont care if he want to bitch about every single thing but leave the religion part out…no religion should be criticize
    newsflash perez…american is the same too
    btw, why did u keep on talking about malaysia????
    i hope they lock him up for 222 years without trial



  74. 74

    Re: bunsen b – so many muslims are killed for no reasons…maybe thats why..its called psychology…no need to be a genius to figure that out

    Re: sharinabanana – hahaha…funny stuff..ppl should really stop being racist



  76. 76

    malaysia does not kill people if their faith is not muslim!wth!!i have friends of different races!yes racism does exist sometimes but then again it also exist in d US!!!!it is unfortunate what happend to rpk!fyi he his actually a muslim himself..i read his blog..he nvr insulted islam..he was merely stating his view on d gov using some islamic story!how in islam it is good and that d gov twisted it..d arrest is just for d gov to cover some things which most msians are already aware of!



  77. 77

    RPK did nothing wrong. He exposes a lot of the governments wrong doing in his blog. They are trying to shut him up for he has expose a lot crimes committed by the authorities and even posted proof on his blog.
    He did not insult Islam. He is actually telling off the bad muslims who does not do what they preach. If you read his writtings in 'No holds barred' then you will understand.
    His mother is Welsh and he is from a Royal family. One of his cousin is a Sultan.
    He is also prolific writer, he shouldn't be held under the draconian ISA law with trial. He should have his day in court if the authorities think is guilty. They lock him up because he made a statutory declaration (SD) that the Deputy Prime Minister & wife and some army colonel are involved in grisly murder of a Mongolian women and blew up the body with C4 explosives. How about that….

    Good day & cheers…
