It’s finally happened.
After all the innuendoes and not-so-subtle threats about terrible retaliation to supposed attacks on Malays by non-Malays, something finally happened.
At least 3 churches were attacked, and one of them was completely gutted by fire.
Besides the online media, the Chinese MSM were the fastest with the story with several publishing the story raw in their morning editions. The English media were a little behind – only managing to publish the news online at about lunchtime and mainly quoting 1Politicians’ condemnation of such attacks.
One would have thought that a paper who had been inciting religious and racial intolerance for so long would have a response. Surely they would want to say something about the fruits of their labour!
But there was nothing.
No gloating op-ed. No reporting of 1Politicians condemnations. Not even a…**GASP**…”neutral” news report!
It’s as if the most significantly disgusting attacks in modern Malaysian history never happened at all.
It’s funny because since March 2008, they have gone into overdrive in their incitements, even roping in the Chinese Dr Ridhuan Tee to condemn his own race and and justify the ultra-Malay doctrines being promoted by the UMNO mouthpiece.
Well, I say that Utusan has to assume some responsibility for these attacks. For years they have been poisoning the minds of Malays in this country. We can now see the results of the kind of intolerance promoted by them. Luckily no one died. But who knows what might happen in future if they continue to incite hatred and intolerance with impunity, protected by their political masters?
What say you Utusan? Awang Selamat? Ridhuan Tee? You played with fire and now at least 3 churches have been fire bombed.
Why so quiet?
Speak up and answer to the Malaysian rakyat for your actions!
