VOXPOP 'If he has slandered a teenager through the Internet, shouldn't the MCMC be taking action against the blogger?'
Protect Lim's 'traumatised' son, police urged
DannyLoHH: Why has no action taken by MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission) against Papagomo - no searching of his house, confiscation of his PC and no interview?
Hasn't Papagomo been caught with his pants down for maliciously slandering an 16-year-old teenage boy using his blog?
It's clear that the MCMC is beholden to the morally bankrupt Umno. That's why they are scared to investigate Papagomo, a pro-Umno blogger.
Hwa Shi-Hsia: Before anyone accuse me of being a BN goon for criticising DAP chairperson Karpal Singh, I'm a Pakatan Rakyat supporter.
Karpal has made a completely ridiculous statement. I think he must be getting old.
Bullying and cyberbullying are definitely problems among schoolchildren, but Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's son must be treated like any other kid.
The only scenario where the police should step in to protect someone is when the person is being physically threatened. The police certainly should investigate the defamation. But this case should not get any more priority than a similar case against anyone else.
Karpal, please don't undermine DAP's credibility by calling for BN-style favouritism.
Solaris: This is another wayang (show). A police report has not been made but you expect them to ‘spring into action' and conduct a criminal defamation investigation against the bloggers over the alleged slander?
Go make a report first, Karpal.
Hollangan@Hp: I fully agree with Karpal that the police should be responsible to protect a minor and charge those who initiated the lies.
The only concern is that instead of investigating the culprits, the police would turn to interrogating the poor boy. Let's see what they are going do this time.
Astraltraveller: The country's cousins - PM Najib Razak and Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein - are only interested in their own welfare and not in the least bothered about what happens to the nation so long as they can retain power and remain at Putrajaya.
Karpal, you should know this after having spent two years in Kamunting under 'Operation Lalang' in 1987. But with divine grace, the Malaysian bosses - the voters - will put things right come 13th GE.
Guan Eng, you have suffered but the Lord will be with you, and guide and protect you and your family.
Lim Chong Leong: Children of BN ministers who were criticised were no longer children but adults and hold positions in public-listed companies or are in politics. So there is nothing to compare between them and LGE's (Lim Guan Eng's) son.
Dappy: Where is Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin going to hide? Dig him out to offer public apology to LGE and his son. Nothing less.
Ku Nan: Umno not involved in organising 'Himpun'
Gerard Samuel Vijayan: This Himpun rally is a big joke. Firstly, how many Muslims have converted and become Christians?
Secondly, more non-Muslims have been converted to Islam, especially Christians from East Malaysia, thanks to the well-funded and organised dakwah activities in both states.
Thirdly, there is a plethora of state laws that prevent Muslims from converting and preventing non-Muslims from propagating their religions to Muslims.
Fourthly, Islam is the predominant religion in Malaysia and also the official religion of the state, Logically can 9.2 percent of Christians convert nearly 61 percent of Muslims?
So where is the threat to Muslims? This rally seems to be nothing but mass hysteria perpetrated by various Muslim NGOs affiliated to Umno with the help of Utusan Malaysia and TV3 using the Christians as the latest bogeyman to simply get Malays/Muslims to rally behind Umno as the saviour and protector of the race and religion.
As such, there is nothing religious or noble about this rally. It is just politics, pure and simple.
Asoka: If Umno is not involved, than state your stand. Is Umno supporting the rally or not? PAS is very clear in its stand.
Borg Kinaulu: The fact remains that nothing can happen without Umno's endorsement. If Bersih 2.0 was allowed to be held without intimidation, Umno would get the credit. So would this coming demonstration which is being held under the pretense of religious solidarity.
Lucia: Umno may not be the main organiser, but for sure they are the instigators and strong supporters of the rally. If not, why did some Umno members spoke up for the rally, and how did Himpun get police permit so easily?
I bet if this rally is organised by non-Muslims or Pakatan Rakyat, it would be shot down. Come what may, nobody is going to believe that Umno has no hand in it. Everybody believes the rally is politically motivated.
