Evil stalks the brave and threatens the peace

by P Ramakrishnan
President Aliran
23 June 2011

Today, at around 1.00pm, I received an sms from +601119732179. The message conveyed to me was in Bahasa Malaysia and read:

Members of the Bersih steering committee at the launch of Bersih 2.0

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 yg bersekongkol ngan kafir laknat tu.. ini amaran aku. Korang tengokla nanti.

Translated into English, the message meant:

Don’t you have any sense? Why should you support that pariah keling haramjadah Ambiga? She is a scorned infidel. Don’t you know that she is a tool of those political dogs who are out to destroy the Malays. She claims she wants to clean up the Election Commission. Clean up her father’s head.

These PAS and PKR lots 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 Christianise all of us.

I am warning you. If this rally takes place, my people and I will kill Ambiga and those around her one by one, including these stupid politicians who are hand-in-hand with this scorned infidel… this is my warning. You watch.” (Malaysiakini translation)

What I received is apparently the same as those received by the steering committee members of Bersih 2.0.

Aliran is part of Bersih 2.0 and is represented on its steering committee, and we are committed to free and fair elections, which are crucial to the democratic process.

The message in the sms is full of venom, threatening death to Ambiga and warning to kill all those around her one by one. It reeks with racial hatred and blatantly concocts lies that have no basis. It seeks to communalise an issue that concerns free and fair elections, which is supported by a wide spectrum of our civil society.

It is intended to arouse passions and disrupt our improving communal harmony, which is seen as an impediment to communal parties that are striving to hold on to their political power through evil means.

The perpetrator of this heinous crime must be brought to book urgently. We cannot brook this criminality and we cannot condone any inefficiency in getting to the bottom of this threat. It should not be difficult as there is a telephone number which can be traced to the culprit.

This is a challenge to the police and they should rise to the occasion to convince Malaysians that they are capable of looking after our national interests and safeguarding our peace and harmony.

Anything short of this expectation is totally unacceptable.

    Analysts are skeptical that Perkasa and UMNO Youth can match Bersih’s expected turnout. It is no doubt not lost on UMNO that these gatherings come against the backdrop of fast-rising food and housing prices that have contributed to a grassroots sense that real wages have not kept pace with the cost of living.

    When the going gets rough, the tough gets going.

    How can the Malaysian government allow a band of racists, thugs and villains run amok in broad daylight under their nose?

    Najib’s voice rings hollow. He looks every inch a political eunuch, castrated by extremists in UMNO. He suffers from bird-brain paralysis and smiles like a canary during photocalls.

    But what good is najib or UMNO or BN?

    Hopeless, helpless, horrendous.

    Today is not the same

    Today, there is a world called INTERNET

    Today, they are Malaysian born citizens in the march

    Today, they are educated Malaysians

    Today, they are all cross races in the march

    Today, the rally all across the states

    Today, it is across the globe from the east to the west

    Today, it would be cover internationally

    Today, Malaysia need foreign investment

    Today is the not same

    No opposition people or supporters has ever threatened to kill any umnoputra despite all the stupid and ridiculous and excessive and illegal abuses, wastages, corruptions, suppression, oppression, unfairness, murders etc etc etc by them, the umno gobermen.

    The only threats of death so far came only from either umno (my believe, of course) or umno supporters. As the gobermen, umno has the law to uphold. Is there a need therefore for umno to resort to death threats? No. So the threats can be taken as a clear indication of umno’s fear of losing power. But really what is there to fear if umno has no gigantic pieces of skeletons to conceal.

    Sial betul budak celaka tu. Otak dia pasti dah terkeluar dari buntut lalu jatuh masuk ke jamban terus.

    There shouldn’t be any surprise actually about this message. Notice the lines of argument has NOT ONE original thought. Its the regurgitation of flailing undisciplined arguments of haters that have been heard before. Clearly the expression of desperation, hate and lost souls (and mind).

    Regardless, the only answer to such haters is to make Bersih and even bigger event. Such haters cannot be reasoned and can be difficult to find, and easily overwhelmed by his own lost cause. The more isolated he is, the lonelier he will feel and more likely to give up because he is of weak character in the first place. He is a follower, not of independent mind. Hence he will follow when everyone goes the other way.

    A few years ago, some jokers sent out sms messages regarding an impending riot by indon illegals in KL. Within 48 hours, their phone messages were traced to the senders and they were arrested.

    It seems that 48 hours have passed since this mudderf#kker has sent the above sms. The fact that he has not been apprehended means that like Abraham Ali, he has protection from the authorities.

    /// It should not be difficult as there is a telephone number which can be traced to the culprit./// -P Ramakrishnan

    What makes you think +601119732179 is not from an immediately stolen hand phone? And who would write and send a thing like this from his own handphone?
    Regardless whether culprit is traceable or not wouldn’t the police then have excuse to say, “there you are, the fact that there are lunatics like these (though small in number) is the rationle why security forces cannot allow Bersih to have the public demonstration on July 9th because fringe guys like this will simply mingle amongst the crowd and by their acts incite a racial riot like May 13 warned of by Perkasa Ibrahim” ?

    Of course this is work of a coward. One fears more of people who don’t threaten and warn but actually (silently) carries out the act! However the fact that there are people who have such thoughts does show that there are many racists/fascists out there defending the system, no matter how corrupt and inept – pawned by 50 years of a racist political ideology promoted by those in power leveraging on it to stay in power.

    The freakish thoughts that go inside their minds will make Ibrahim Ali, by contrast, a boy scout!

    This sms is surely sent from ‘official sources’ with ‘official approval’.
    So who is going to investigate whom?
    This is a component of the government hysterical reactions.

    /// Evil stalks the brave and threatens the peace. ///

    In umno malaysia, we are actually several steps more advanced than that. Here the Evils of malaysia are officially approved and appointed for that specific purpose by the umno gobermen. For instance, perkasa and utusan. And all cabinet ministers have in their portfolio, amongst others, an evil duty etched into it.

    Usually such a threat is from a prankster or a coward.
    One who wishes to kill or do harm will not talk like that…so crude.
    The message is typical Malay style of writing.
    If Najib can send 6000 police officers to “protect” Anwar at Permatang Puah….he should get ready much more on 9th July to prevent any ill incidents around K.L.
    And the so call Home Minister can go to hell for all we care.

    Stop talking nonsense here. This is the work of politically connected individuals who hide behind the cloak of prosecutorial immunity. This is not the work of some mindless id!ot who steals a handphone to broadcast the message. The number is not a mobile number, but a satellite phone number. It makes it all the more reason why we need to walk the walk, and not give in to these goons who believe that they can hide behind some “hidden” powers to be.

    It is easy to trace this satellite phone, but we doubt the police would have the guts to do it. They know who is behind this crude attempt, and to investigate this satellite phone is surely a request for demotion.

    If Ambiga is assassinated, she will worshipped as the malaysian Joan of Arc, even beatified as a saint by the pope.

    Should we be afraid of bombastic samsengs created UMNO? The days of offering the other check to be slapped were long over…don’t take our patient tolerance for weakness.

    If you want to drive safely from A to B, it will happen.

    If you want a peaceful rally, it will happen.

    Whatever happen, it is the total responsibility of the police to ensure a peaceful rally and safety of all.
