YOURSAY 'We should respect people's family and their privacy. We are asking for what is good for our country. So let us take the high moral ground.'
Free thosai outside deputy police chief's house
Cannon: Let's us stay focused on electoral reform. There's no need to come down to level of the other side.
We should respect people's family and their privacy. We are asking for what is good for our country. So let us take the moral high ground and set a good example ourselves.
Right action comes from right thinking.
Gobsmacked!: I applaud the NGOs for wanting to do this ‘thosai' act on Sunday. It is a great idea. Now deputy inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar realises that setting the stall right in front of his house will obstruct traffic.
But when activities are carried out outside other people's house it is okay. It goes to show how small-minded he is when he tried to punish S Ambiga for organising Bersih 3.0 by allowing the intimidation outside her house to go on and what's worse, encouraging other moronic groups to do the same.
I hope he gets the message although he appears to be sporting about it. All eyes are on him and his behaviour as the no 2 in the PDRM (Royal Malaysian Police).
James1067: Let's stop this nonsense. If one does a stupid act, it does not mean that we also have to react with another stupid act. It will mean that there is no difference between us and the other person.
We have a bigger battle ahead of us, especially the foreigners who have been given blue ICs to vote in the next election.
We have to work together to expose those traitors in the country that have sold this right that belongs to only Malaysians and also the foreigners that have been given citizenship.
As for Khalid, he have already back-tracked his statement out of fear as the people are willing to take the challenge of selling ‘thosai' outside his house.
Pemerhati: A large number of Umno's past and present leaders are guilty of various crimes such as rape, murder and massive theft of the people's money amounting to billions.
They now cannot be brought to justice because Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who probably stole the most amount of money, and the subsequent prime ministers have put corrupt and incompetent people in top leadership positions in the judiciary and enforcement agencies.
These officers, out of fear and/or gratitude protect the Umno crooks and carry out any crooked activity ordered by Umno such as harassing and persecuting the opposition with trumped-up charges.
The enforcement agencies also allow thugs hired by Umno to intimidate, embarrass and physically harm anyone who threatens their chances of winning the elections (e.g. Bersih) by the various fraudulent methods they have devised.
All the brave people opposing these Umno crooks should be cognisant of this fact and should try and protect themselves as best as they can.
Anonymous_3f51: Please stop all these nonsense. 'An eye for an eye will only make everyone blind' - Mahatma Gandhi.
Dr Suresh Kumar: Haven't I been saying all along - that most Malaysians are a bunch of immature and misguided people?
These people (from the opposition) scream and shout at Umno-BN to change, but they themselves will not change.
They follow Umno's despicable acts and yet scream and yell for change. Isn't that stupidity of the highest order?
Anonymous #70867328: I fail to understand those who are against this free ‘thosai' move. What is so wrong if the DIGP himself said it is not against the law to do such a thing as long as it is not inside someone's house compound.
It is just like a Sunday morning carnival of free breakfast and maybe some can even do some aerobics/excercise at the same time. Isn't this a healthy thing to do?
Headhunter: Khalid was just saying he was fine with it so as not to contradict his embarrassing statement earlier. Had it not been for Ambiga case, the police would be right there with their guns and Black Maria ready in front of his house.
This man has make many silly statements before in defence of the BN.
Anak Malaysia: I love this idea! Why not, after all it is in support of and in reliance upon DIGP's far-sighted and intelligent statement that gathering in front of someone's residence is no offence.
Just be civil, don't disrupt traffic or disturb the neighbours. Khalid, we do expect you to warmly welcome these ‘thosai' people as befitting the hospitable Malay culture.
Do serve them some drinks too the way Ambiga kindly offered the ‘Army Veteran Buttocks Regiment'. Something like lukewarm water would be appropriate.
Anonymous #55961902: Those ex-army is a disgrace not only to Malaysia but more so to their family and grandchildren.
They refused the accept drink offered to them by Ambiga and claimed they only drink lukewarm water because they are Muslims.
Anticommunalist: I would advise to refrain from doing this as this is precisely what Umno wants to bait trouble.
