Susan Loone, Malaysian Blogger gets a Death Threat!

I am angry to learn that some anonymous idiot has emailed a death threat against my fellow Malaysian Blogger Susan Loone !

Is this what this country has turned into?

A land where we are supposed to just kowtow to the ruling coalition and stop blogging for the truth and nothing but the truth?

I received a death threat myself for writing about the HINDRAF before and for conducting a video interview of a Malaysian Hindu just to know what he as a citizen thought about the movement?

Little did the threatener know that Mahaguru58 is just concerned about my fellow Malaysians who happen to be Indian Hindus and just wanted to do my bit for them in the long run?

Now I learn about another Malaysian Blogger getting a death threat for writing the truth?

Is there no justice in this country?

The BN monopolizes every mainstream media channel and expects the Malaysian Bloggers to just do what?

Roll over and die?

Sorry folks. No can do.

We are obliged to live as true Malaysians and carry out our duties as truthful citizen bloggers of this country.

These are the contents of the threat. Judge for yourselves as to the kind of people we have here in this country?

Go check out Susan's blog here.

"I am very sorry for you, is a pity that this is how your life is going to end as soon as you don’t comply. As you can see there is no need of introducing myself to you because I don’t have any business with you, my duty as I am mailing you now is just to KILL you and I have to do it as I have already been paid for that. Someone you call a friend wants you Dead by all means, and the person have spent a lot of money on this, the person also came to us and told me that he wanted you dead and he provided us with your name ,picture and other necessary information’s we needed about you”.

“So I sent my boys to track you down and they have carried out the necessary investigation needed for the operation on you, and they have done that but I told them not to kill you that I will like to contact you and see if your life is Important to you or not since their findings shows that you are innocent. I called my client back and ask him of your email address which I didn’t tell him what I wanted to do with it and he gave it to me and I am using it to contact you now. As I am writing to you now my men are monitoring you and they are telling me everything about you”.

“Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE?”

“As someone has paid us to kill you. Get back to me now if you are ready to pay some fees to spare your life, $15,000 is all you need to spend You will first of all pay $8,000 then I will send a tape to you which i receded every discussion i hade with the person who wanted you dead and as soon as you get the tape, you will pay the remaining $7,000. If you are not ready for my help, then I will carry on with my job straight-up”.

“WARNING: DO NOT THINK OF CONTACTING THE POLICE OR EVEN TELLING ANYONE BECAUSE I WILL KNOW.REMEMBER, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS YOU VERY WELL WANT YOU DEAD!

“I WILL EXTEND IT TO YOUR FAMILY, IN CASE I NOTICE SOMETHING FUNNY. DO NOT COME OUT ONCE IT IS 8:PM UNTIL I MAKE OUT TIME TO SEE YOU AND GIVE YOU THE TAPE OF MY DISCUSSION WITH THE PERSON WHO WANT YOU DEAD THEN YOU CAN USE IT TO TAKE ANY LEGAL ACTION”.

“GOOD LUCK AS I AWAIT YOUR REPLY”.

**********************************************************

Seems like this blackmailer has gone through an English course. Not bad for a useless coward!

I hope that Susan goes ahead and lodges a police report about this threat to her life.

Let all Malaysians pray for Susan and those of us Malaysian Bloggers for our safety as we do blog under threat.

O Allah! Please watch over us and protect us who are just heeding Your Call for us to speak the truth and defend the righteous.

Ameen.

I think this is a hoax. A Conman probably. No killer is going to sound like that. Killers doesn't
1.Ask for money from their victim.
2.Pay and u'll be alive??
3.Check with u to see how important is your live??
4.Return call the Killer??
Oh, Come On "Killer", you sound so amateurish trying to frighten this little lady for some dough.
Anyway report police, you must get this Conman to stop in his act so that others will not fall to his threats.

Dear Mahaguru,

Thank you for alerting re. Susan death-threat. i have posted my comment in her blog, similarly, I'll be honoured if you let me post my note here.

Not to overly concern with the threat. I have google-search on the content of the threat. It is a scam that is repeated in 2 other places.

No need to make police report since Susan has more important things to do.

This is a case of FBI, go direct to www.ic3.gov for reporting if Susan wish to do so.

Anyway, if the foreign assassin comes to malaysia, our malays, chinese and indian brothers will not hesitate defend susan with their respective silat, kungfu and probably Bollywood-style fighting.

Cheers up all

Thanks for the support folks.

This threat whether it is a scam or some idiot out there with nothing better to do than try scare dear Susan or any other socio-political blogger can rest assured that he or she will soon be traced and dealt with by the authorities.

I received another comment which has a tinge of ad hominem in it so as promised I've deleted it.

Even then what the writer raised had something to do with the way I wrote this article.

He or she is not too happy with my inferring that the BN has something to do with it?

Well, after all the threats and insults against us Bloggers by the BN ministers, what are we supposed to do or react when a fellow blogger gets a threat like that?

Are we supposed to just ignore it until something really happens and nobody knows about it because the threatened blogger chose to keep quiet about it?

It's a catch 22 situation.

If we blog about it, we are accused of blowing things out of proportion?

If we keep mum and say to hell with it, if something really happens, then the readers will say, why the hell didn't he or she tell us about it?

I don't know people.

We are just human and as such no matter whether we write in support of the BN or the BR, we still get our fair share of brickbats either way?

Not that we are narcissistic airheads who love preening ourselves!

We are just concerned citizens writing for the good of the nation.

If we come across as paranoid at times, it is due to the very fact that we have been threatened times and times again by just about every idiot minister in Badawi's cabinet

I don' give a shit about such threats but I still think it's important for our readers to know just in case you don't hear from us anymore.

Qullu nafsin iza iqatul maut.

Peace. Out.

As much as I am concern, it could be a case of boy crying wolf.

She is too much a drama queen to have any credibility.

Is she trying to divert attention from her wrongful accusation of Mukhriz?

SHe should take more caution by being more ethical in her posting to avoid such danger.
