It has been more than two weeks since I sat across this man. I miss his intensity, his purposeful glare, his challenging pout, that impish smirk when he knows he has made his point, his encyclopedic archive of facts, figures and dates, but most of all our shared vision: A NEW MALAYSIA.

He is now in a cell, in solitary confinement where the forces of the Government will do their patriotic best to break him into submission. Did he insult Islam? Why did I see, in Permatang Pauh (on Nomination Day and during the campaign) pakcik and machik, and young Malay men and women throng him, queuing up to take a photo with him or at least to shake his hand. If he has insulted Islam and what he wrote about anathema, these grassroot Malaysian Muslims would have treated him like a leper. I did not see that, not in Pematang Pauh, not during the GE12 campaigns. But the sitting Government who allows racists like Ahmad Ismail go free (and without an apology) whilst they put his man in a cell over some trumped up interpretation that he insulted Islam.

In my earlier post I did say that I was made to understand that the King and the Sultans are guardians of the Islamic Religion. Have their prerogative been usurped by the Government. WHY AREN'T THESE GUARDIANS making a concerted stand? This perplexes me endlessly. And some of you still say that THIS COUNTRY IS NOT IN DISTRESS?

Pete did says to me:
"Don't get angry. Get even"

Just like he told Haris:
"You’re useless to me in your present state. Have that fury when we strike. I need you calm and cunning now".

as you describe the scene at PP, muslims must now stand up and say that their faith has not been insulted by RPK. Why is there this silence from them?

i've never been to Kemunting.... dunno how strict they are in terms of noise & gathering in the area...

on d ground... maybe more regular trips or even a semi permenant post in the area...

makes noise so they can hear us from inside...

meanwhile.... anyone with any means/contact with the Royals should just try & lobby...

I can understand those SB officers indulging in excuses saying RPK's articles might be wrongly interpreted by those with a poor command of English when they couldn't evidence that he had defamed Islam.

This cannot be said of our Royalties who surely possess a very good command of the language and therefore couldn't possibly have misinterpreted RPK's writing.

Since the Monarchy is an institution that uphold Islam in the country, why are they SILENT on the arrest of Raja Petra knowing full well that RPK is the REAL defender of the faith?

The nation and its citizens including the Agong and his fellow sultans, should be thankful that we have a blue blooded true Muslim in Raja Petra who has been unwavering in his quest to enlighten the masses to the message of the Prophet.

I'm baffled as to HOW and WHY all those who were blessed to adorn in royal regalias have preferred to stay mum when one of their brother of royal lineage dressed in commoner's T-shirts had to languish in Kamunting for speaking the truth about Islam.

At this moment in time, I can honestly say that not even the King of the Day could garner so much compassion and respect as our Raja Petra Kamarudin.

RPK can be my King anytime, and this is from the heart OK?

This reminds me of V for Vendeta. Maybe we are really in distressed and in need to take some desperate measure to fight for the justice that we believe in.

Our voices have been censored too much in the pass and now they are trying to shut us down on the cyber world as well. I see more protest in 2008 than my 23 years of life combined. Well maybe I was just blind back then.

I don't think what we blogger do are wrong in anyway. I did not spread some anti-government propaganda around because I hate the government. I am just another frustrated Malaysian who think that my voice should be attended to and there are no formal channel for me to do so. And I don't think I'm alone. Just like businesses, some are bigger, some are more popular, mine is still small and continuously improving it to share more valuable information with the world.

So... Did you know that all countries with 100% Muslim population are terrorized by terrorist attacks?
Just make a search for terrorist attack in countries like: Libya, Mauritania, Bahrain, Western Sahara, Maldives, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Somalia
Not racism, just facts and figures.

This Raya we shall boycott all open house and discourage others from going too.

This BN govt has no reason to celebrate Raya after what they have done to those ISA detainees.

They have soiled the sacred month of Ramadhan with their actions. Why should we partake in their party.

RPK DOES NOT INSULT ISLAM, HE ONLY INSULT’S THOSE WHO ABUSE ISLAM FOR THEIR POLITICAL GAINS. LET’S GET THIS THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULL UMNO. RPK insults the Malays that insult ISLAM, so how does that make him a national security threat, he makes people think, what the masses think but do not want to voice, he puts into words. RPK, insults those who insult our intelligence with ridiculous statements and come out with their own interpretations of Islam. RPK INSULTS CORRUPT HYPOCRATES, who insult Islam
The only people who insult ISLAM are the ones from UMNO, how do they insult Islam you ask? Well here is a list, join me and add your own interpretations of how ISLAM IS INSULTED BY THE MORONS WE NOW HAVE IN GOVERNMENT.

Islam is already perfect, so why reinvent Islam and re-brand it under the UMNO banner of ISLAM HADHARI., That by itself is blasphemous, the Author of this statement, slogan or whatever name you want to give it, Should by itself should earn a stay in kamunting under the ISA, if the same standards are applied to others should also apply to UMNO. This should include all govt officials, tv stations, editors, print media, politicians, MPs and everyone involved in these blasphemous name of ISLAM HADHARI.
Collecting Interest in Islam is Haram, ‘Most important was Islam's ban on interest payments as usury’, The Malaysian govt.. led by umno has re-branded ‘USURY’, under many different names and words such as e.g. Modal, Amanah, etc. rebranding the pig which is haram in the first place, under the guise of another name like ham or bacon or whatnot, doesn’t make a difference, it is still HARAM.
The myth made-up by Umno that if you insult the Malays you insult ISLAM, this is a tried and tested method perfected under the Mahathir administration, whenever there is a scandal or an expose’ on the govt’s. gross mismanagement, it becomes a Malay issue therefore an Islamic issue. Let’s understand something, MALAYS does not equate to ISLAM, the term ‘Malay’ equates to a race, ISLAM is a religion. The abuse of Islam under the guise of Ketuanan Melayu, Bumiputra issues, and the NEP are all inter-related. Let not even go to the term ‘Muslims’ and ‘Malays’, because there it becomes even murkier, and muddier.

Who insults Islam, RPK or Umno, its agents and cronies who are put in positions of power, (turbanated little Mullahs, little Napoleons)?
Funds from Tabung Hajji misappropriated and mishandled?
While claiming to be the guardians of Islam, the members (especially in one known incident with a bunch of cronies’, fellow Muslims?) go and chomp expensive cigars, consume alcohol get drunk and grab any women’s BUTT. Whatever happened to that case, has the shariah people got involved, where’s the JAKIM, RELA, JAIS, SHARIAH COURT)
A certain person got entangled in sheets with a seductress actress cum singer in some Hotel room in Port Dickson, where a raiding party of religious dept. people caught them, when realising who it was, it was hushed up. Now the question arises, what is more insulting to Islam, The overzealous raiding party, the cover-up, or the vvip who was caught with the women, mind you , till today no report or anything has been reported in the press.
Balkis and other such so called ‘CHARITY’ bodies which are chartered to be helping out the poor and single mothers (normally muslims), well they seem to have spent a lot of money on themselves instead of helping out the poor, again the question arises, which is more insulting to Islam, the promise to help the poor single mothers, spending money on FETEING themselves to luxurious dinners , cuti sambil belajar overseas junkets, Expensive souvenirs programs, collecting donations on false pretences from donors, OR PROMISING, AND NOT DELIVERING TO ‘ helping out the single mothers and orphans’ . Isn’t taking away help from the poor a bigger insult to ISLAM.

The list goes on, Now would you like to add to this list. Carry on folks, because I find this list will run into pages, I might as well write a novel or a BIOGRAPHY, on means and ways how to insult Islam but beware, the is your interpretation of who and how you would define insulting ISLAM or in this case RPK insulting ISLAM, and than you have the Govt. interpretation on who and how Islam is insulted.

Let me leave a footnote though, on whether this insults Islam,
Corruption, Stealing/ misappropriating funds, swearing on the Koran,
Lying, involving in immoral activities, Adultery, Visiting the family Bomoh,
Practising witchcraft or the Black – arts (mind you this is not black metal)
Racial discrimination in govt. policies, Jacked up projects, under/over-table money, kopi money, Surat laying, Surat fitnah, back stabbing, Murder, talking rubbish that really tests our intelligence, ‘no speak engrish’ when confronted by customs officers whilst carrying 2 bags full of unexplained cash, Hijacking the NEP meant for the poor, Mishandling of Malaysia’s resources and funds etc take your pick folks, which would you find a bigger insult to ISLAM, RPK OR UMNO & BN.

An insulted Malaysian

When you take aim at a target, your arms must be relaxed, your concentration in full intensity and when you are ready, you slowly pull the trigger. It must hit right on the target, no second chance. So RPK is correct, stay cool and be ready, hit well and hit hard.
The other side (UMNO scums), have more leaks in their boat, than they can patch. They are playing the race card and religion, out of desperation. Using ISA to silent the critics.
Just be patient, the moment of truth may come sooner than we expect.

A hero RPK.. an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.

Don't give up. Don't lose hope. Don't sell out. PEOPLE


Pak Zawi said...

It is just a trumped up charge. It is easy to accuse him of that because not many people read what RPK wrote so they can always lie to the rakyat and get away with it.
Now that their party (I have rescinded my membership) is in turmoil due to infighting, poor RPK will languish in Kamunting while they find a way to find peaceful solution to their own squabbling.

This can only happen in Bolehland. Thank heaven, I don't live in Malaysia anymore. But I pity my comrades there. Someone should assassinate Bodowi to teach Malaysian politicians a lesson. Looks like the only way out……….

Syed Hamid Albar has decided to interprete a writing about Muslims and Islam and has executed a legal order. The Sultans remain silent even though Syed has stepped over thier boundaries. Islam is the prerogative of the Sultans. Very soon Syed Hamid will be writing Friday sermons as well.

Maybe it was this wisdom that prevailed then that upon independence the Sultans retained the heads of the islamic religion in their respective states.

Syed would probably be the first politician to venture into interpreting, prosecuting, judging and executing over something he has no jurisdiction over.

I would say, the Sultans should be the rightful complainants. Not Syed.

How come so-called social activist NGOs like Amnesty International Malaysia have been quiet and non-active in the efforts to abolish the ISA/call for RPK's release? Where is their famous activism? Is this because they know something the public doesn't or have they been paid off to shut up? JR

UMNO is all about $$ and the best way to hit them is where it hurts most. Can we target certain institutions for boycotts?

Dear Zorro,

I am glad to see that there are lots of Abolish ISA activities planned to get RPK and the rest of the detainees out of Kamunting. Are you and Haris getting the support of the Pakatan leaders to drive the people's support for these activties? Lets face it. Without their support we will not get effective participation like the Bersih rally. From where I am sitting I dont see it. If not, I will be calling my PR MP. They owe it to RPK and the Hindraf 5! Please advise.

You are not the only one perplexed by the government action. Majority Malaysians on the ground are holding their breath, frustrated, angry and disgusted. Cruelty and arrogant is the norm in running a nation. We are actually negotiating with idiots, and you know very well you will never win.
Is the spirit of independence laid by the founding fathers being interpreted with wisdom and justice by the present leaders. Do we have a choice now? With diminishing hope and all the uncertainty, where do we go from here, KEEP BARKING AT THE MOUNTAIN OR WHATTTTTT.......

Let's make frequent visits to Kamunting. Make some noise there! This will keep the detainees' spirit up, knowing on the outside people are standing up against ISA.
And continue to keep this issue priority and current in our blogs. Never, ever let it slip into 2nd place.

yeah .. I have been wondering since RPK was detained 2 weeks ago, that, why our Agong and the Sultans and all other Royal family members have been strangely quiet, as though they don't exist .. why ??

Dear Zorro,

We've lost with the Executive and Judiciary and all we have the Royal Rulers. Our Royal Rulers are our final beacon of hope to save this beloved nation of ours.

Can we for starters start wearing YELLOW T-SHIRTS and seek the support of our Roayl Rulers. Imagine every Friday, thousands of people wearing yellow T-Shirts/Shirts everywhere around the city and the country.

I work in Bangkok and every Monday I wear yellow to honour the King of Thailand. He is their final protector for the Tahi people.

Can you and the other bloggers like Haris draft an open letter to ALL the Rulers with clear concise arguments on why RPK should be set free and copy this to ALL members of Parliament irrespective of Political persuasion and to all Foreign Representatives in this country and get this letter signed by at least 100,000 Malaysians ? I think it is just one of the small things we can do to help RPK. We can repeat this call to the rulers ever so often until they realise the PUBLIC anger on what this evil government has done.

Zorro, you really want to get evan? Bring home minister and police chief to Mahkamah Islam on RPK's behalf for defamation and wrongful use of Islam's name in attaining personal's gain. Use other cases too to keeps RPK's name ringing.

Anonymous said...

It is extremely sad that bro RPK is now under detention but yet he has made his stand very firm. Some may he is stupid but I strongly commend his strength, dignity and above all righteousness. He has portrayed a model role for all to follow but are there anyone brave and man enough to follow his foot-steps. His fight for the truth has been taken to heart by the BN and the only way out was to silence him by throwing the ISA on him. This sin by the BN will nevertheless result in the culprit being punished by the almighty. May the culprit suffer a slow and painful death. So "Egg-head", beware and prepare for the worse.

Getting even by creating minor noise here & there is not effective and akin to mosquito bites unlike a bee sting.

To get publicity we can have peaceful gatherings at local events/meetings where there is international news coverage (like CHOGM or esp those that deals with discussions related to justice, upholding the judiciary, etc...)to get maximum mileage.

Attack on a narrow front and put The principle of force to work for you.

How many years did it take Tunku & Ghandhi to succeed in the war of attrition against the British. It certainly was not a mere 6 months.

So, patience, my friend. We'll get there. How long? As long as it takes!!

We must exert max pressure through vigils, visits to Kamunting, more anti-ISA forums and all the help we can get from friends anywhere in the world. I was in London in the 80's when the anti-apartheid protesters gathered every Friday at Trafalgar Sq outside the S.African Embassy.

I think you guys should plan massive attendance at Badawi's,Najib's and Syed Hamid Albar's Hari Raya Open Homes.

Wear a shirt over your Anti-ISA T shirts, go to thier homes and half way through having your tax payer funded food, remove your outer clothes to reveal your Anti ISA T shirts. Maybe even light a candle.

Organise this on a large scale. Its quite all right, after all if "what was it that" "Grump??" stole Christmas, we can organise to steal the Hari Raya celebrations from these bums.

Do the same with any Federal Hari Raya celebrations as well.

When you organise large scale, they might even cancel these events...and that is quite alright isn't it!! After all if they can deny Raja Petra and his family his time with his family, we can also deny them their Hari Raya.

organise a FREE RPK card campaign...
1) simple n cheap card is fine

2) sell it at nominal amount to whoever wants to buy..think there will be plenty....

3) organise to send these cards to those nut fellas in the gomen -bodohwi,najis, fact flood them with these cards..or dump those cards onto their doorstep...

its more effective than collecting petitions..i feel...

god bless RPK

Hi Bro,

You want to get even, then why don't you protest when Pakatan Rakyat government demolished a Hindu Temple in Ampang?

Be fair please, when BN government demolished a temple, you make a lot of noise, now why no complaint?

Master Zorro, perhaps, you are only championing someone like RPK who is from middle class and of royalty bloodline, what about us, sideline Indian @pariah,,,Hartal-you head. Now, we cant go to BN since we have fully support PAKATAN RAKYAT.

Master Zorro, please do something or you are in the same stature as Teressa Kok, the liar. Are all PAkatan Rakyat MPs liars?

There should be no peace for Botak if the ISA detainees are not released and the oppressive draconian law is not abolished because such injustices are not tolerated and thus create great discontentment in this modern society. One day Botak and his cohorts should be made to eat their own medicine for the injustices they have committed against the detainees especially RPK

We call upon all the Rakyats of Malaysia to sign a Petition to be sent to the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to release RPK from his detention under ISA because there is a hidden agenda of a conspiracy of using his detention to silence him so that he could not further release more evidences against the real C4 murderers of Altantuya because all the accused were all fall guys of the real murderers because they all did not have a real & logical motive to murder the Mongolian Lady.


It is very easy to generate Police Reports against DSAI by using Penang Mamak Umno’s 25 Members headed by Wan Abidin Zain, who claimed to be non-partisan, using their uneasiness that most Penangites will now be boycotting Nasi Kandar one more round???

It is very Sad that the legacy of Malaysian Independence is reduced by this Moronic Flip Flop Coward into great disrepute and a laughing stock of the whole world and knowing very well that the UMNO Government has technically collapsed and they have lost locus standi to govern but yet he has decided to shamelessly still cling on to power via dubious means like hiding himself via using of the ISA and we cannot imagine that the Malaysia Moronic Flip Flop Coward has now stoop so low and using the Police Deputy IGP as his willing tools especially the Deputy IGP’s clearly taking side as the Police must be neutral and should be not politiking for him.

The Coward Moronic Flip Flop Chicken dare not meet DSAI face to face to settle matters but chose hiding under the use of ISA and that is what you have as a disgraceful cowardice leader for UMNO.

After 51 years MALAYSIA IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE but backwards because of the Oppression from the UMNO goons’ divide and rule fear tactics the Rakyats have matured & you must see all this coming because All The Rakyats of Malaysia are all fed-up & can no longer with-stand the hypocrisies, bullshits, lies and deceits of these UMNO Clowns now in Power ok???

We urge all BN Components MPs with a conscience to do the necessary to make possible a New Malaysia for all Rakyats of Malaysia so that all our children and their children & their children’s children’s future will be safe and secured in the Country we all love and not be intimidated by those UMNO Clowns now in power with their oppressive & fear tactics and in the verge of making Malaysia a Police State if left unchecked otherwise. Save RPK as he is the midst of a conspiracy of the real murderers of Altantuya to silence him for good, instead of being C4ed he could be poisoned and worse off if he is on hunger strike by himself. The Acting IGP is defending the Police position after being made the tools of UMNO’s fear tactics & so he is now making lame excuses for being the Stringed Puppet to be easily manipulated by the Puppeteer, power that be. The Deputy IGP must be held personally responsible for the safety of RPK who has been heard to be tortured otherwise he must be made to eat his own medicine come the New Dawn of Malaysia.

Moronic PeeM and Botak Home Minister last minutes’ attempts to cling on power by using the fear tactics of using the ISA at their whims and fancies selectively against dissent & tried to deny their own actions as they now have no balls to face the wrath of the all the Rakyats of Malaysia. ONE DAY THE MORONIC BOTAK AND FLIP FLOP AND C4 MUST BE MADE TO TASTE THEIR OWN MEDICINE OK?

All Rakyats of Malaysia will see to that these Clowns will be thrown out soon come the New Dawn of Malaysia & that all Rakyats of Malaysia will welcome the New Malaysia on Malaysia Day 916, 2008 for a Malaysia for All Malaysians.

Justice MUST BE DONE for Altantuya and for all those detained under ISA without the trial nor the rights of appeal. Light-up a Candle in the Lantern of the Mid-Autumn Festival for them all to usher in the NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA COME 916, 2008

Yes....4-5 years is not a long time to wait. All we have to do is to keep the pressure up...slowly and steadily and BOOT them out in the next GE. That's the only way I feel we can succeed. Forget about the crossovers, etc....let's keep cool and do it the proper way democratically. Meantime, do whatever is necessary under the rule of law, to get RPK out, use the Royal influence, overseas assistance, court of laws, any means that would help.
Reason these UMNO morons do not dare charge him in court is because he will spill the beans on his SDs and that will mean that DPM can say goodbye to his craved PM post. There is just too much at stake for him at this stage of the political game so his only choice is to shut RPK up with ISA so that he will have no chance of jeopardizing his chance.

It is very upsetting that DSAI, PKR, DAP and PAS are not doing much to free YM RPK in spite of what YM RPK have done to swing 15% of voters their way. I am waiting till this weekend to see what DSAI and PR are made of. Go to youtube and you could see RPK speak so passionately and forcefully for PR, spending months before 080308. Hear this well PR, if efforts to free YM RPK before Raya is not stepped up by DSAI, LKS/LGE and TGNA, a campaign will be unleashed to remind Malaysians of PR betrayal. Let us see how PR will fare without YM RPK's and his readers support.

Sivaji: Thanks for your comments. However please refrain from making sweeping statements like Teresa Kok lying and associating me in like vein. I just put up a post on the demolition of the temple. But I did not do it to appease you. I did it because I am against indiscriminate demolition of places of worship.

And so what if I write often about RPK? If you know the meaning of loyalty, you would not have questioned my loyalty to RPK. It is not fair of you referring to his royal bloodline. You need to do some growing up, boss(?).

May I propose a more practical way of protest, other than the Kamunting visits and the wearing of Free RPK T shirts to Hari Raya Open houses.

How bout if someone come out with the list of UMNO holdings and their associates in business and let's boycott them. Hit them where it counts. They can onlyu hold out so long without any economic nourishments.

I for one am boycotting any advertisers on UTUSAN in response to their continued attack on TK and their unprofessional and biased reporting.

Lets do this together and hit them where it hurts in the wallet.
