I just cannot believe that even the wearing of a black shirt and black trousers can subject a person to arrest in the state of Perak. What if an Arab lady dressed in a black purdah happens to be in Ipoh yesterday? Will she be subjected to arrest too?
This is absolute nonsense, and never have I heard that even the wearing of a specified coloured dress is an offence. Where are we heading, and what kind of regime do we have in this country today? Even the dreaded gestapo during the time of Hitler Germany does not have such a ruling.
I would like to make a personal appeal to the authorities in the state of Perak to use a bit of their common sense. We are in the 20th centuary, and the state is suppose to practise democracy. If this is the sort of ruling that we have, and with a police force that is not able to rationalised what is right, and what is wrong, then we might as well disband the police force, and employ some policemen from Zimbabwe. I think they can think better, and do a better policing job. Whatever reasons that the police gave for their actions, their reasons are certainly not good enough.
I saw pictures of how the policemen dressed in civilian clothing dragged out the Speaker from the State Assembly. Disgusting, I would say. In the first instant, we all know that no policemen is allowed in the assembly. Do we not remember what the former Home Affairs Minister Syed Hamid said of the police, when DAP Parliamentarian Karpal Singh was rough out in parliament a few months back? Did the former Home Minister not say that the police has no right to be in parliament, to affect an arrest on any parliamentarian?
Now, who was the culprit that had called in the police to evict the Speaker? Should he not be arrested for ordering something deemed illegal. Surely Zambry saw what had happened to the Speaker, and he cannot therefore say that he does not know anything. This incident is no laughing matter, and the whole world watched in horror and disgust; the demise of democracy in the state of Perak. And for doing this, Zambry's name will be long remembered in the annuls of Perak, as being the Menteri Besar that had brought utter disgrace to the state assembly. Some have even claimed that this incident had brought the BN closer to its grave.
Let the recent Perak State Assembly fiasco be a lesson to all Menteri Besar, and never again to witness a repeat of a similar incident in the future.
