“We should not be fighting over power. We should be sharing it. If we continue to fight then others will come in and take over from us (Umno)”
- Senator Tan Sri Jins Shamsuddin
Its secretary-general, Mohd Mustafa Latiff said Anwar had given a “negative impression” of the government with his takeover plan.
It is truly scary nowadays! Anyone can make police report and that unfortunate soul may just end up in Kamunting. All it takes is for Syed Hamid to issue a detention order. All that is needed is for someone within Umno to instigate another from Umno to make a police report and claim a person to be a threat to national security.
National security is now a new vocabulary. Political dissent and differences are classified as "negative impression" and will be construed as posing a threat to national security. Virtually, anything dislike or differed with the oligarchy will now be construed as a national security problem. Democracy means abide by the whims and fancies of what those in power and those with power wanted and preferred.
Fear factor rules the nation now!
