I May Be 13, But I Deserved A Fair And Honest Report

Three articles written by two different news portals regarding the case of Lim Guan Eng’s seditious statement on November 23, 2016, highlighted my police report.

One of the articles came from MalaysiaKini while the other two were from Free Malaysia Today.

I was quite surprised to see the two news portals highlighting my police report, especially Free Malaysia Today (FMT), that wrote an article specifically on the matter.

FMT’s article, “Police query Guan Eng over report lodged by 13-year-old” ‘interestingly’ was written without getting the facts right.

I wonder whether FMT intentionally did so to sensationalised the issue or because they did not bother to get their facts right. 

According to the police report sighted by FMT, the 13-year-old Form 1 student from Ampang, Selangor, lodged the report because he felt that Lim’s post dated Nov 23, 2016, was against the amendment of the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965, currently being pushed by PAS in the Dewan Rakyat.

For the record, I will not be making the police report just because I think that LGE is against the amendment of Act 355.

It was done because LGE’s words were seditious; therefore, violated the Laws of Malaysia. 

And with his position as a party leader, his false accusations can spread hatred which can lead to wild actions among certain groups of people.

We are living in a multi-racial country and we had experienced the racial tragedy of May 13, 1969; so we have to learn the lesson well.

The tragedy was the reason why the Section 3(1)(f) was added to the Sedition Act, in order to avoid such future incident and to maintain a healthy relationship among the people of all races in Malaysia.

I love my country and I do not want to see the peaceful and harmonious lives that we are enjoying now being shattered by such malicious words and actions.

I feel that LGE’s malicious accusations can promote the feelings of ill-will and hostility between Islam and other religions in Malaysia where his statement gives the impression that the Muslims are unfair and extreme.

In fact, LGE had indirectly questioned the sovereignty of the Rulers when he went against the then DYMM Yang Di-Pertuan Agong’s decree:

“Beta berharap langkah-langkah ke arah memperkukuhkan institusi agama dan kecekapan perlaksanaan undang-undang pentadbiran agama Islam melalui pemerkasaan Mahkamah Syariah dapat disegerakan.”

I did not make the report because Lim Guan Eng is against the amendment, but I made the report because Lim Guan Eng seditious words violated the Laws of Malaysia.

To FMT, please write fair and honest reports.
