KUALA LUMPUR, June 23 — Bersih chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan has received a death threat via text message which was also sent this morning to reporters and some members of the Coalition for Free and Fair Elections (Bersih).

The text message warned Ambiga as well as PAS and PKR leaders from going ahead with the July 9 Bersih rally, and said her life would be in jeopardy should it (the rally) proceed.

“Korg ni buta hati ke?? buat apa sokong ambiga keling paria haramjadah tu? dia ni kapir laknat. korang tau tak dia ni jadi alat anjing2 politik untuk musnahkan keutuhan melayu. dia kata je nak BERSIH kan SPR. bersih kepala bapak dia. puak2 PAS n PKR pun buta tuli n pekak badak.. kalau SPR tak bersih, boleh ke diorang menang kat Sgor, Kedah, Penang, Kelantan n perak dulu?

“DAP cina sial tu pulak lagi haram jahanam. dia tengok je melayu bertekak. hujung2 dia perintah negara ni dan kristiankan kita semua. aku nak kasi amaran kat korang semua. kalau perhimpunan ni jadi, aku dan org2 aku akan bunuh ambiga dan korang2 keliling dia satu persatu, termasuklah orang2 politik bangang yang bersekongkol ngan kafir laknat tu.. ini amaran aku. Korang tengok nanti.”

(Are you people blind? Why would you support that pariah keling Ambiga? She is an infidel. Don’t you know that she is a toll of those political dogs who are out to destroy the strength of the Malays. She is just saying she wants to clean up the Bersih election, she should clean up her father’s head. And the PAS, PKR leaders, they are deaf, dumb, blind and illiterate. If the EC is not clean then how did they win Selangor, Kedah, Penang, Kelantan and Perak? The damned Chinese DAP are even more despicable. They just watch the Malays go at each other’s throats. In the end, they will rule the country and turn all of us into Christians.)

Ambiga has confirmed that she will be lodging a police report on the matter today.

The first rally in 2007 saw up to 50,000 people take to the capital’s streets before they were dispersed by police armed with tear gas and water cannons.

The 2007 rally has been credited for the Pakatan Rakyat’s record gains in Election 2008, where the opposition pact swept to power in five states and won 82 parliamentary seats.

PAS has promised to bring 100,000 protestors this year in hopes that it will galvanise support for the opposition in the next general election, which is expected to be called within a year.

But Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has repeatedly warned of police action against the illegal gatherings, saying yesterday that the organisers of all three rallies will be summoned to Bukit Aman.

    Threats to Ambiga’s life and other PR leaders.Soon it is going to be throwing of molokov cocktails.It is going to get dirtier.It is a test of steel.Umno will do whatever it takes to have the rally cancelled.It is testing the will of the people.

    No matter what Umno and its goons does, from now onwards will not help them.They are headed for self destruction mode anyway.Whether the rally takes place or not is irrelevant.Umno has dug themselves a hole so deep that it is impossible for them to climb out.They have shown to the Malaysian people and the world that the present GOM is unfit to govern this beautiful and peaceful nation of ours.Authoritarian governments are meant for third world countries like Zimbabwe.

    Umno know’s that it is loosing its grip on power.It is desperately doing whatever it can to hang on to power.Whatever things they do they ended shooting themselves in the foot.In the eyes of the political world it can’t do no right.Even master politician Dr. Mahathir cannot save his beloved Umno Baru.It’s cooked.

    This death threat could only come from cowardly and low life thugs!

    There should be immediate outrage from all leaders.

    Ms. Ambiga, we Malaysians know that quitting to you is not an option.But we would like you to know that whatever you decided to do from now onwards we will always be proud of you and your Bersih group.If good common sense tells us that the rally should be called off so be it.You and your Bersih group has already shown Malaysians and the whole world that Umno can bo bought down to its knees.For that we the rakyat say ‘Thank You’.

    It is becoming so clear and evident that this blessed country of ours is held hostage by a leadership that’s organised by thugs and bullies. They resort to threats, intimidation and blackmails to remain in power. No sane and right minded Malaysian would want to live a life under such a hostage situation and the resulting tyranny that falls under such regime, let alone having to leave this world knowing that the next generation would “inherit” such “legacy” under the same regime. The thought is nightmarish, not to mention the mental anger. So Kudos to BERSIH and its chairperson Ambiga…please know that this threat directed to you is only one person whereas there are tens of thousands standing behind you.

    If the EC is not clean
    PR still managed to deny BN 2/3 majority
    If the EC has been clean
    BN would have been history
