Yes, Brigidier General (Rtd) Mohd Arshad Raji, adviced Najib “to listen to the people and more importantly to the call by His Majesty the King to confer with the people in order to avoid leading this blessed country to ruins.”
In his post today he pulled no punches when he warned:
“While the May 13 (1969) was a race riot, this time (should a riot occur) will be markedly different. It will be a riot by Malaysians of all races, united and resolve in their demands for free and fair elections, against the authorities that are predominantly Malays. This being so, we can expect the worse, for I believe it will eventually be the pro Bersih Malays leading the charge against another fellow Malay. I dread such a scenario, and the consequences following such a riots (God forbid) will surely leave the Malays further divided and unity in tatters.”
To him and some of his retiree colleagues questioned why commit the army over a situation they believe to have been crafted by the police themselves?His full post HERE
Yesterday, he took the PDRM to task over their comical discovery of parangs, Molotov cocktails and Bersih T-shirts and asked:
“Would you believe that the findings of weapons, explosives and Bersih yellow colored T Shirts by the police in KL recently is the work of the Bersih organizers or its supporters? And do you not see how irrational and stupid the police were in pointing their ten fingers and declaring that this has to be the dirty work of Bersih? Wasn’t I right in saying that the Special Branch officers today are no longer of the caliber of those officers of the 60’s and the 70’s?”
He tells us WHY HERE and be sure to read the comments posted that tells more about the caliber of the man. His blog mind No Evil is on my blogroll. Sir, I salute you!
