No to Nazri, no to Sedition Act

COMMENT | Two wrongs do not make a right.

With his comments this last week on the campaign trail in Semenyih, former minister Nazri Aziz seems to want to take Malaysia back down a dark road of racism, hate mongering and incitement.

This represents to me the very worst in Malaysian politics.

However strong my own personal feelings against this brand of politicking, I would never condone the use of the Sedition Act 1948 on Nazri. Indeed, I doubt I would condone any sort of criminal prosecution on Nazri at all...
