From Malaysiakini: Read here for more


"We as Umno Youth and citizens of Malaysia are HURT by Chua’s actions”
-Khairy Jamaluddin, Deputy Chief, UMNO YOUTH
Let's get this straight: HURT? UMNO YOUTH?
A very long shot. Almost impossible for anyone in this country to believe, for an organisation that itself practises variations of verbal and street gangsterism in dealing with others, especially members from other political parties !

UMNO Youth does NOT have ANY high moral ground at all on THIS issue.

Khairy Jamaluddin, Deputy Chief, UMNO YOuth said (Tian) Chua had insulted the Umno deputy president and also touched on the trial into the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.

We as Umno Youth and citizens of Malaysia are hurt by Chua’s actions,” said Khairy, who was accompanied by Tangga Batu MP Idris Harun and Putera Umno chief Abdul Azeez Abd Rahim.

“It (the picture) was fake and unsubstantiated. (And) Chua has admitted this himself. We take it as something that was done in bad faith.”

Umno Youth's deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin lodged a complaint today with the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), seeking “speedy action” against Chua who is PKR information chief.


Khairy refused to be drawn into commenting on a digital composition posted on the Umno Youth website in 2005 which had offended the DAP. Read HERE for more, and HERE and HERE

The picture on the UMNO Youth website contained the superimposed faces of opposition leaders on the cover of the book, Alias Chin Peng: My Side of History - the autobiography of the former Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) secretary-general, who now lives in exile in Thailand.

The super-imposed faces of Opposition Leaders on the cover of the book, ‘Alias Chin Peng: My Side of History’ were that of former deputy premier Anwar Ibrahim, Parliamentary Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang, PAS leaders Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and Abdul Hadi Awang as well as DAP chairperson Karpal Singh and the party’s international secretary Ronnie Liu.

Khairy said, “This has nothing to do with our report today. (They) did not lodge a report."

What sheer hypocrisy on the part of Khairy! Let's see whether MCMC will take action against Tien Chua. If so, then opposition should urge MCMC to take action against UMNO youth for superimposing pictures of opposition leaders on cover of Chin Peng's book
