This is the letter from the MCMC which wanted Malaysiakini to remove the two offensive videos on the news portal. I am heartened by the fact that the editor-in-chief, Steven Gan, stood his ground on the matter. Please click on the image to enlarge.
These are the two videos that the MCMC wanted removed.
A dialogue between the Selangor state government and residents of section 23 Shah Alam took place on Saturday, September 5 2009 but it turned out to be a fiasco as some of the residents decided to take matters into their own hands right from the beginning without even allowing the meeting to be properly convened. There were these two persons (one with long hair/pony tail and the other, a bald/crew cut) as can be observed from the video who shouted profanities and other abuses at the panel. From the looks of it, they just would not allow the meeting to get underway. I am glad the panel slogged on and thanks to Tan Sri Khalid and YB Khalid Samad for keeping a cool head over the proceedings. Right from the beginning, these fellows did not come with a mind to have a meaningful dialogue with the state government. The whole thing was pre-meditate with the intention to disrupt the meeting. Period.
I was even shocked to learn from Lucia's Mental Jog that one of the guys even called ADUN Rodziah a "whore" and said: "I will rape you now!" No matter what the grievances are, this has certainly crossed the line, a Muslim saying such things during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
