Police have now a greater responsibility to show they are even-handed and take action against those who had completely without cause threatened unrest over the closed-door Dong Zong meeting

The Police should not have banned the Dong Zong closed door meeting over the Jawi issue in Chinese and Tamil primary schools although the police were under intense pressure because of irresponsible and incendiary threats by extremist quarters.

Now the police have a great responsibility to show that they are even-handed and take action against those who had completely without cause threatened unrest over the closed-door Dong Zong meeting.

As I have said earlier, while Vision 2020 will not be achieved next year which would begin in four days’ time, let more and more Malaysians regardless of race, religion or region, try to be Bangsa Malaysians and resolve the crisis over the Jawi issue in a peaceful and consensual Malaysian manner.

    27th Dec is indeed a sad day for Malaysia, and even sadder for DAP. Chinese were denied their legitimate right to meet in private. A few samsengs and gangsters could cause a private meeting to be cancelled? The IGP is wrong. The junior magistrate is wrong, and what is worse, where are the protectors of democracy and Chinese/Malaysian rights? Where is the DAP? Are they still relevant? We have a tyranny of the minority. A few gangsters and samsengs have more rights than the majority? A party with 15 MPs have more authority than the other parties with 60+42+12 MPs ( people’s representatives)? This is just not right, and our beloved leaders have not stood up for us? How do we explain such behaviour to the supporters who helped us win GE 14? Pandering to racists will only encourage more racism. Is that what new Malaysia is all about? Once upon a time, we had leaders who were prepared to stand up for a young girl who was rape. Where are these leaders now? Once upon a time, our leaders were prepared to go to jail, fighting for what was right. Where are these same leaders now? Is it too comfy in Putrajaya, that the struggle is now abandoned? How do we face our supporters to garner support when GE 15 comes around in 2023? How do we face them?
    Please wake up beloved leaders in DAP. You are a very important component of the Harapan government. You have 42 MPs, so you have a big voice. Please stand up for what is right, without fear or favour. This 27th Dec is indeed a dark day, VERY VERY dark day, coming after many many dark days. It is time to renew the struggle. The fight for justice and fair play. Wake up.

    Dear YB Lim, what is happening to DAP? I paid “you a visit” as a concerned citizen. Please do something before DAP is wipe out.

    All the criticism of GAMIS, I do not see them highlighting the biggest problem. GAMIS is suppose to organisation of graduates, the educated in this country but their agenda and actions are medieval and primal. How do the country propose these graduates can be anything else but extractive rather than constructive given their basic motivation and modus operandi?

    What is the use of telling what police should or should not do or the importance of bangsa malaysia when you (DAP) being supposedly part of government have no influence whatsoever on the government to do these right things and not the wrong things that you talked about?
