THE recent arrest of 12 individuals over their alleged links to the Liberation of Tamil Tigers Eelam is the work of controversial preacher Zakir Naik’s supporters, said Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P. Ramasamy. 

Ramasamy accused the Indian born preacher’s camp and “forces” of creating fake news about the revival of the LTTE in Malaysia to divert attention from India’s bid to extradite him on charges of money-laundering.

  • And the ringleader of the plot sits safely ensconced in Putrajaya, playing innocent as usual.

  • Make a police report so that IGP can't say he is not aware. Hamid is a man of integrity, he would not allow any fake or invented news. Gobind Singh is the Multi media minister, he can initiate an investigation on this alleged fake news.

  • Tun M is displaying his true colors. The legacy he leaves if he does not correct it can only be one of escalation of corruption and escalation of racial toxicity.

  • Did we forget what happened in the 1980s for 22 years? History is repeating itself. Malay supremacy is being once again being promoted. Treat Non-Malays with complete disrespect labelling them aliens to Malaysia. The policy of segregation, divisiveness and religious intolerance is rearing its ugly head. Malaysian are afraid now to sepak up-no difference when UMNO, the mother of all corrupt political parties ran Malaysia.
    Is malaysia a dictatorship-like Cambodia, Thailand and other nearby countries? How can one man decide that Zakir Naik a known terrorist , fugitive, racist with one who promotes religious intolerance be put on a pedestal when he should be in jail. How does DR M decide for the huge coalition that voted for Anwar Ibrahim to arbitrary decide everything on his own. Millions want DR M to resign-Malaysia is for all Malaysians.

    Is Malaysia becoming a Police state ?
