Don’t let MH17 fade away like MH370

comments         Published     Updated

The shooting down of MH17 on July 17 is not only shocking but totally outrageous. I am surprised and disappointed that Malaysia’s reaction so far has fallen short  of what should be an outrage for this crime against humanity.

The government's reaction is diplomatic, too mild and inadequate against such a horrible crime as this against innocent civilians being transported in its national airline. Our government has every right and duty to come out loud and strong to push for the fullest inquiry to ascertain the murderers and having done so to lead in the international pressure to have them prosecuted in the International Criminal Court.

In the meanwhile I feel that Malaysians from all levels should come out in public to express their total unacceptability of this cruel act and to show our sympathy to all who are mourning.  We must not allow this to fade away like MH370.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
