I almost fell off my chair after reading the newly minted Wanita MCA chief's gallant call for Tan Sri Zainuddin Maidin to be charged for sedition. Going by the tone of Datuk Heng Seai Kie's statement, I'm sure she would have demanded for the former Information Minister to be locked up in Kamunting if the ISA had not been repealed by Najib.
Charge ex-minister with sedition over bribery comment, says MCA
Describing Tan Sri Zainuddin Maidin's posting on his blog on Sunday as "rhetoric-filled racial discrimination", Wanita MCA chief Datuk Heng Seai Kie challenged the former Information minister to prove his claims or apologise for his slander.
"I urge the attorney-general to charge him under the Sedition Act so as to set an example and serve a warning to others," she said in a statement today. - Malaysian Insider
Well, why would you want to charge someone for stating facts about popular public perception for decades?
I would suggest Datuk Heng to embark on a fact finding mission to rebut Zainuddin's statement that the 'Chinese are the biggest gives of bribes in the country'. Heng, go get an independent body to do a poll if you dare.
Maybe Heng, by virtue of being a national MCA leader, should stop living in denial and organise awareness campaigns to fight corruption among the community she represents.
I just have a few simple question for Heng.
Q. Who do you think initially introduced and bred corruption in this country?
A - Farmers and fishermen
B - Rubber Tappers and railway hands
C - Civil servant and Security guards
D - Traders and Businessmen
Q. Who runs brothels, prostitution dens, gambling dens, mesin kuda, secret societies, ah long, smuggling syndicates, sleazy massage parlours and human trafficking ?
Q. Who are the drug kingpins in this country and beyond?
Q. If a big number of the civil servants today are said to be corrupt, who corrupted them?
Q.Who sells almost anything and everything for money?
I don't mean to offend my Chinese friends by posing the above questions but hypocrites and desperate politicians like Heng must remember that facts would remain facts, no matter who you are.
Don't try your populist political antics too often to score points. Try embarking on something more worthwhile.
As much as we don't deny the role of any community in building this nation, we must also be wise enough to accept facts as they are. Don't do a YTL lah!
NOTE:Datuk Heng may want to consider keeping her hands off the can of worms and try organising joint anti-Corruption awareness programs with the MACC. MACC may have some factual record of graft offenders in the country too. MACC don't take action against corrupted minds, do they?
