COMMENT | Unfortunately, the message he is sending by his absolute and eloquent silence is that right-wing bullyboys are going to have the freedom of the land.

Instead of wasting the public’s time and money (not to mention insulting its intelligence) in investigating the Women’s Day march for sedition, why can’t he open his eyes and direct the security personnel whom he administers to refocus their efforts on the true threats to public law and order?

Those people who don’t hesitate to threaten violence, intimidate journalists and play on base racist and religionist sentiments to ensure that the flame of intolerance is always burning.

Muhyiddin needs to clamp down on the Lokman/Jamal/Papagomo type goons - all of whom are office bearers in Umno, the party he served for 45 years.

If he does not, he will have failed in a fundamental task of his, as one of those charged with creating a better and new Malaysia...
