The ISA is evil; ISA must go!

Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

It is outrageous that Raja Petra has been sent to the Kamunting Detention Centre to serve his two-year detention under the Internal Security Act.

The Home Minister cannot justify his action; neither can he convince the public at large that he had acted in the interest of the nation.

It is a political decision to put away a brave and committed Malaysian into oblivion so that the Barisan Nasional will not be  ridiculed by Raja Petra’s wit and wisdom on a daily basis. He had bombarded them relentlessly, exposing their lack of logic and utter incompetence. This is what they want to stop. This is what they want to prevent desperately.

Let it be known that Raja Petra is no traitor to this nation. He is not a security threat in any way to this country. He is a patriot and a decent human being. The struggle to free him will continue no matter how long it takes, whatever it takes.

Malaysians will remember this cruel act and condemn the ISA as something evil and unjust. The Home Minister has made it absolutely clear that as long as the BN is in power the ISA will be there to terrorise innocent people and cripple our democratic space. The ISA will only go when the BN is made to go.
