IGP’s English standard incomparably low

Thirdly, On Monday, DAP MP for PJ Utara, Tony Pua, tweeted in anger when he heard that Nurul Izzah was arrested under the Sedition Act in relation to her speech in Parliament last week when she went to the Dang Wangi Police Station to keep an appointment with the police for her statement to be taken over the #KitaLawan rally in Kuala Lumpur on March 7.

This attracted a tweet directive from the IGP, namely: “@PDRMsia akan panggil YB ini menjelaskan apa maksud beliau dgn ‘Royal my foot’. Adakah ditujukan kepada Raja2 Melayu?” (@PDRMsia will call this YB and ask him to explain what he means by ‘Royal my foot’. Is this aimed at the Malay Rulers?)

Khalid was referring to Pua’s tweet “Bastards. Real bastards. Royal my foot”.

I agree that Pua’s tweet was in bad taste. But it was not a crime. Was Pua’s tweet aimed at the Malay Rulers?

Not to mention the police officers, I believe the overwhelming majority of school children with decent command of English language will give the IGP a strong unambiguous answer – No, it is not aimed at the Malay Rulers but the Royal Malaysian Police.

Something is really very rotten with the educational system in the country, and in particular with the shocking drop and decline of English standards in Malaysia, when the top cop in the country could ask the question whether Pua’s “Royal my foot” was aimed at the Malay Rulers when everybody with average IQ will know that is not directed at the Malay Rulers.

As a result, the IGP is setting off more police officers on a wild goose chase to determine whether Pua’s tweet is aimed at the Malay Rulers, when the police should be focusing on how to make Malaysians safe from crime and the fear of crime by keeping crime rate low as well as to snuff out the growing Islamic State danger and threat in the country.

When will the IGP get his priorities right, which is to make Malaysians safe from crime and free from the fear of crime?

    When the police are so powerful and can remand people at will, does it make Malaysia a police state?
