'Seditious' posting: Police report lodged against PM:
From Malaysiakini: Read here
"... A police report was lodged today against Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for seditious comments posted on HIS official website.

The report was lodged by DAP central executive committee member Ronnie Liu with the Damansara Utama police station. According to the report, an article titled 'Bersatulah Kaum Cina' (The Chinese race must unite) containing racially inflammatory comments was posted on the website in November 2005.

The article, under the pseudonym of Dr Ng Seng, claimed that the Chinese are conspiring to weaken the Malays politically and economically. Written in Bahasa Malaysia, the article also claimed that the 1969 racial riots was a failed attempt by the Chinese to take over the country.

The article was posted in the condolence section that was created following the passing of Abdullah’s first wife, Endon Mahmood in October 2005.

The article, which was posted on Nov 14 last year, was removed from
the PM's official website TODAY.

Excerpts: Read here for more on Raja Petra's article

Hey Umno! Yes, you, Umno! You, who accuse me of being seditious and who should be detained under the ISA.

I, Raja Petra Bin Raja Kamarudin, is not only accusing you of being seditious, I am also accusing you, Umno, of being the cause of an unknown number of deaths suffered in the 13 May 1969 race riots.

And I make this allegation with God as my witness and the testimony of the First Prime Minister of Malaya/Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Bapa Merdeka, who went to his grave an extremely sad man and who grievingly said he wished he had died and never lived to see the day that Malaysians would murder Malaysians.

If anyone is seditious it is Umno and until today those propagating a blood-bath have not been made accountable for their actions.

  • Was it not Najib, that ex-Selangor Menteri Besar with two Muhamads in his name, and all those others calling for my detention under the ISA who raised their keris above their heads at the TPCA padang in 1987 and threatened to bathe it in Chinese blood?

  • Was it not Umno in November 1999 during the ceremony to launch Barisan Nasional’s election machinery in the Bukit Jalil Stadium that warned the Chinese if Barisan Nasional was to lose its two-thirds majority in the 29 November general election, just like on 11 May 1969, then another May 13 may erupt?
Yes, who in heaven’s name is seditious?

Is it I or Umno?

I am alleged to have raised racial tension by allowing comments in Malaysia Today’s blogs that may rub some races the wrong way.


Me who has Malay, English, Welsh, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Filipino, etc., relatives who are Muslims, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists, atheists, etc?

Hey, if there was a medal for being the most ‘global’ family I would be he who is most eligible to receive it. My family is almost like a mini-United Nations.

And I have not even started dissecting the ‘Malay’ side of my family into sub-groups such as Bugis, Javanese, Minangkabau, etc. (Read here the royal lineage of the descendants of Upu Tendriburang Daeng RILAGA)
