Malaysiakini : ISA. BBC HARDTALK with Mahathir.

When I posted this article about A SHOCKING FIND. TERESA KOK NOT GUILTY. PART 5, the internal article is about the needs or whether ISA need to be abolish in our Malaysia country.

One of my friends call me, why don't I posted again the "BBC HARDTALK with Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad ?"

Let all the readers share it. ....mmm.... "Good idea. Why don't ? Indeed it was a good HARDTALK."

No doubt when the Internal Security Act been implemented, we will find so many negatif things (The Human Rights) compare to positive element. But what to do ? As I had mention :

REMEMBER THIS - This is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural country. In years to come and many many moons to appears, everyone will protect each other races. We cannot deny it. This is the FACTS.

Here you can find some of the conversation through PART 1, PART 2 and PART 3 video clips. Enjoy.

Stephen : You use the laws which went back to the colonial time in the Internal Security Acts, the emergency procedures, do you feel satisfies to tell that was entirely legitimate ?

Tun Dr. Mahathir : "No..We find that the situation in the country is very.. very fluid and the... it is very likely that there will be a racist acts unless we prevent such people who are promoting racial hatred from talking about it"

Stephen : "Under 1984 Press Law which require a newspaper to get a new license every single year and it is easy for you to quite them down."

Tun mention that the Press Law is always been there because we live in a country of multiracial.......

Tun Dr. Mahathir : "The facts is that, we have a multiracial country... and if we are not careful.... there will be a racist... racist flare up. If you look at the most country.. with the multiracial populations, there are never PEACEFUL even Northern took you such a long time to a... stop the war in Northern Ireland."

In our 50 yrs as a nation, there were not many incidents which cld trigger racial problems.. However, in the last 3-4 yrs, UMNO has alone created all types of tension thru their chauvanism & pigheadedness in wielding the kris, Ahmad Ismail etc etc and we r honestly worse off than when we started as a nation in 1957!!
Mayb UMNO has to look within itself what 'contributions' they've made over the yrs..
Zaid is right in saying that ISA shld only b used to counter terrorism & not for political & racial means.
