The Malaysia Today -Islamic Party of Malaysia @ PAS Dialogue scheduled to be held tomorrow at the Century Paradise Club at Taman Melawati, Hulu Kelang has been cancelled!
I spoke to Malaysia Today Editor and Owner YM Raja Petra Kamarudin this afternoon and RPK confirmed that the event has to be cancelled after the Century Paradise Club were warned by 'higher authorities' not to allow the Dialogue to be held there.
You can read about it here.
What a bloody shame! And we thought that such things were a thing of the past!
Looks like it will forever be the same no matter what and as long as the Freedom of Speech or Assembly remains mere rhetoric on the ruling party's agenda!
The thing is, what have the authorities got to fear from such a Dialogue?
What can happen? A few politicians will take the opportunity to blow hot and cold before the crowd.
Worse come to worse , a few hotheads will speak and spew forth some ideas, the press will take some photos of some illuminaries shaking hands and hugging for photo ops.
After an hour or so, the Dialogue will come to an end and everyone will go back to where they came from.
The Malaysian Government will remain in the present rulers hands. Not a minister will have lost his or her post!
Sheeesh! Talk of fearing the Opposition! This is simply too sickening to even write about!
Tch tch tch tch! So much for democracy! So much for the so called New Age of Freedom under you know who!
Back to the kopitiam guys! You can express your thoughts and views over a cuppa and toast!
RPK, why not converge to the Old Town White Coffee Kopitiam at Jalan Cheras? They have WiFi there too!
We can all discuss or just curse the idiots who cancelled this event with style over there!
Hehehehe....Anyway, that's Malaysia for you. Championing all others who are downtrodden overseas whilst trampling on our rights to gather and have a peaceful dialogue amongst ourselves!
Cakap tak serupa bikin maa!
