Another blogger detained in Malaysia

The pro-PAS blogger Penarik Beca, or Bakaq to friends, was picked up by cops from his home in KL just before midnight yesterday.

They also took away his computer, I was told.

A group of bloggers will be at the CCID hq (the old PM's Department near Bank Negara) at 2pm to protest the detention.

Here in Singapore, news about blogger in Malaysia remains a subject that fascinates people. My prayers for Bakaq.

An ancient Chinese proverb states that a fish rots from the head down. The lesson is clear. If an organization fails, one need only look to those at the top to find the root cause for that failure.

i liken bloggers to that of the outspoken lot living in a big family. someone has to point out who is right and wrong, whether we like it or not. this blogger is harmless and didnt mean any harm. those with ears should make correction if such allegations is true, then walk on proper path again.

if the government keeps on treating bloggers like a bunch of enemies, may as well they take in editors, journalists and owners of many publications which we regard as 'extreme' or 'radical'.

although freedom of the press cannot really be applied (when it comes to inciting public uneasiness over religion and race), we deserve to speak for the truth. sometimes it hurts, alrite but letting any wrongdoings to go on without any check is even more dangerous to our stability.

any reason known to public on why he was detain?

If the freedom of speech is questioned, then the current government in power will also be numbered.

Hoping both party can tolerate each other for the benefit of rakyat.

Wow.. what happen to the bulan merdeka??? is it going to be a tough time for bloggers and malaysians? the price of crude oil also have already dipped below USD120 per barrel this month... is there going to be a price adjustment for petrol?

Anyway, selamat menyambut bulan merdeka dan diikuti dengan bulan puasa...

rock,

I hope the bloggers will unite to protect penarik beca from beinh unjustly treated. When will UMNO-BN learn that such police-state actions only make them more unpopular than ever. I am saddened by this and, I am praying for the well-being of our fellow blogger.

Sdr Rocky's Bru,

Kalau benar, harus ada kenyataan rasmi mengenainya daripada polis.

Kalau tidak, akan timbul pelbagai spekulasi.

Kita harap hak asasi Sdr Bakar dan semua umat manusia yang berada di negara kita ini dihormati.

Terima kasih.

Kutu mainly aggregates other blogs in his site. I dunno what he wrote that so offended "them".

This detention stinks. Seems like a throwback to last year when all Malaysian bloggers were considered "pariahs".

Still engaging in scare tactics, our police. Still totally oblivious to public opinion.

In short...BEBAL!

What say All Blogs, Rocky?

monsterball said...

Be safe...and well in S'pore.
I am keeping in touch with Amin Iskandar..on "Penarik Beca" matter.

If we are in the "pihak yg benar" kita jgn takut lah biar pun ditahan... mungkin polis nak datang bersembang kot ahaks..

Satu perkara nak bangkitkan di sini berkenaan FORUM MAJLIS PEGUAM tu.. terbaru PAS bantah forum anjuran Majlis Peguam Malaysia itu yg dinytakan oleh YB Dato' Seri Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang tetapi saya tertanya-tanya mana kenyataan daripada Pemimpin ISLAM yg bernaung dibawah PARTI KEADILAN RAKYAT yg kononnya memperjuangkan ISLAM?????

I wonder what was it on Bakaq's website thats considered 'seditious'?

Maybe Sharizat got pissed off with his comments about her photo with Rafidah?

Arresting a blogger... is this high-handedness or scare tactics? What crime has he committed? What freedom are we talking about? Something wrong in the system.

Careful.

Salam saudara Rocky,

Saya rasa, kesabaran sudah sampai ke tahap kemuncak.. Kita sudah tidak boleh terima lagi pentadbiran negara masa kini..

They said that CheDet was a dictator and etc.. what about them... duh...??

p/s,

Saudara Bakaq, U have my support!!!

Regards.

Look at his post made the night before his arrest...the one immediately before the post about Rafidah. Desperate leaders and their sons-in-law may see shadows at every corner, a consequence of "siapa makan cili, dia rasa pedas"..

Anak said...

Will they arrest CheDet too?

Anwar was release on bail!

Judge Komathy courage is admirelable.

Her action shows that we can make a difference by doing our job right!

Judge Komathy... Salute Salute Salute.

Hope there are judge who got the same courage for Penarik Becah

Things are really getting worse in Malaysia.
I thought we all be safe and sound after March 8th .
I thought umno and the federal government "learned" something out of it.
Apparently not.
They are making us very "susah".

As for "penarik beca" , none of what he posted come close to the AK-47 unlimited ammunition firings of YM Raja Petra.
"penarik beca" charged for sedition is unbelievable .
How come najib was not charge for anything for his racist speech years ago?

bumi-non-malay said...

This government is becoming desperate...In times like this we need to put on a MAT Kilau thinking CAP.......Criminal during "British Occupation", Hero after Merdeka.

Are we in the same league as Mat Kilau??.....its time to disrupt ...disrupt...disrupt

By BoyCott Boycott boycott Air Asia, Petronas, Pull money out from local banks and let those banks Crash to stop cash flow to UMNO-BN-Police-judges....in Credit Crunch time BOYCOTT have the MOST POWER!!

Make it difficult for the current corrupt UMNO-BN government to manage and make the people ANGRY....in FURY we Obliterate them FOREVER.

Thanks to Tun Dr.Senile racist M legacy....Bapa KEMEROSOTAN MALAYSIA....hari ini dalam sejarah!!

he was arrested because he defaced the Royal Malaysia Police.

he was not arrested because he wrote about the muzarakah between umno-pas

Anonymous said...

I think the arrest had something to do with his posting on 14th July 2008 entitled "Kenapa tak usik Raja Petra".

Apparently, he had defaced the police crest, substituting tigers with dogs and defacing the crown with C4 and $ instead of Allah and Muhammad.

Mereka sumbat kamu ke dalam liang lahat yang gelap.
Tanpa hidayah.Tanpa terang cahaya. Tanpa alamat.
Ada haba. Tak ada angin. Tak ada jendela.Tak ada jamban.
Terpenjara.Tersiksa.
Terpelosok dengan hanyir darah luka penjenayah
Malam nanti,tidor di tilam konkrit,kawanmu beratus-ratus nyamuk helikopter.
mengacau mimpi memeluk isteri tercinta
Tak tahu kapan tong besi akan terbuka.

Pak beca! Pak Bakaq Penarik Beca!

Di setiap simpang meradang anjing dan musang.
Kamu terkurung dalam kotak kaca
Para pengadu meludahi kamu dari mimbar putrajaya.
Mulut kamu digam .

According to some reports, his arrest has to do with the Police logo being defaced i.e. a dog replacing the tiger on his blog. I don't see what is offensive about that. A dog is more intelligent than a tiger and also more LOYAL...is that because someone did not want to discuss loyalty to our beloved and illustrious PM, the magnificient leader, our Payung, great helmsman, otak kelas satu in UMNO,MCA, MIC(e), Gerakan, PPP etc, protector of the poor and friend of all? Tut, tut.
