Is this PKR man sane and worthy to be a leader of our country?
Lately, making seditious statements is the latest trend for some people who wanted to be seen as a hero for certain group of people.
Latest is a former PKR ADUN of Batu Uban, Pulau Pinang, Raveentharan Subramaniam’s turn to do so.
“Firstly Islam was a NEVER a Religion of PEACE”, wrote the former PKR ADUN of Batu Uban, Pulau Pinang, Raveentharan Subramaniam on his Facebook page.
Raveentharan later posted an apology saying that he never intended to offend Islam.
However, how can such a direct seditious, malicious and rude statement on Islam was said as not “intended to offend Islam”?
In fact, not only does the statement offend the Muslims, but worst it can cause a racial tension between the Muslims and the non-Muslims.
It was reported that he will be investigated under Section 298 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.
Moreover, by saying that, “Islam was NEVER a Religion of PEACE”, Raveentharan has gone against the Section 3(1)(e) of the Sedition Act, which says:
A “seditious tendency” is a tendency— to promote feelings of ill will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Malaysia…
By the way, what does PKR party president has to say about her man’s malicious statement?
And if Kak Wan and her allies say nothing, may I ask if that PKR agrees with Raveentharan Subramaniam’s statement?
The opposition leaders especially PKR leader, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim always preach about good governance.
They and their supporters always justify their illegal actions such as ‘BLACKOUT 505’ illegal demonstration as heroic actions partly because they claim that the Malaysian government does not practise good governance.
And of course they proudly claim that they practise good governance in Selangor and Pulau Pinang even if only their supporters believe their words.
Good governance is too important for them that some of Pakatan’s Muslim supporters feel that good governance practice is more important than Article 3(1) and Article 11(4) of the Federal Constitution.
I wonder what are the good governance practices that they are so proud of?
What kind of good governance is this?
The PKR leaders are fighting openly with each other like small children fighting for toys.
May be they should take a break and listen to what Michael Jackson said in his song, ‘Man In The Mirror’:
“If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change” – Michael Jackson (Man In The Mirror).
What about their integrity?
Well, may be integrity means nothing to them.
