KELANTAN has been taking land originally earmarked for the Orang Asli on the sly since Merdeka, lawyers said, resulting in disputes and blockades.

Rights lawyer Siti Kasim said this also occurred in other areas throughout the country.

    • Are you a trooper? What does religion have to do with this?

  • This has been happening since 1957 all over Malaya. The British never put safeguards in place even then against the ruling party and their cronies. The ideology of the regime has always viewed the true natives as sub-human, hence the oppression and grab for resources.

  • PAS has really done it this time. Their display of using Islam as a front in their party is now being seen as hypocrites. This party should be "kuburkan" like Umno. Ignorant folks are thinking that PAS will pave the way for them to heaven and those martyr are salivating for 72 virgins in vain. Thought that such blokes are only seen in Middle East but in our own backyards are plentiful.
