PBB leader criticised for pro-China remark

Dukau Papau 

Sarawak PKR today criticised Assistant Minister of Youth Development Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah for wanting Malaysia to adopt China’s harsh laws on the social media.

State PKR information bureau chief  said it is dangerous for Abdul Karim to suggest adopting the harsh cyber laws of China.

“Is he inferring that Malaysia should be like China, a communist and totalitarian government that implements harsh laws on its people?

“Why are you using China as an example?” Vernon  asked in reference to a statement made by Abdul Karim (left), who is a senior leader of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu.

Abdul Karim said on Monday that the federal government should to review the cyber law of the country, including tightening and enforcing it to prevent abuse that could stir unrest.

 “Many of the postings are just mere rubbish or untrue, which at times cause some anxiety to the people.

“What Malaysia needs now is for the MCMC laws to be reviewed, tightened and enforced.

“This is very important as we do not want the country to go into chaos as a result of the irresponsible actions of some cyber users,” Abdul Karim, who is Asajaya assemblyman, said.

He added: “In Malaysia, unfortunately, the government wants ICT penetration to go to every corner of the country but the government does not have the means to fully enforce those naughty users, who post seditious, incriminating, defamatory materials in the Net.

“In China, if you post anything seditious against the government, next thing you know is that the government enforcement unit will be at your doorstep.”

‘Malaysia is multi-cultural, democratic’

Reacting to this at a media conference, Vernon asked: “Is Abdul Karim saying Malaysia should be like China, meaning that Malaysia should be a communist and totalitarian state?  

“You are using China as a basic example and are you therefore suggesting that we should become like China. This is dangerous as Malaysia is a multi-cultural, democratic country.

“All our neighbours are moving ahead. Even Myanmar, which used to be suppressive, is now moving ahead in its social media.

“Do you want to pull Malaysia backward with its harsh cyber laws?” Vernon asked.

On Abdul Karim’s demand that MCMC be given more ‘teeth’, Vernon pointed out that Malaysia has sufficient cyber laws to deal with instigators.

“Only recently, a PKR leader was arrested for allegedly posting a seditious remark on his Facebook,” he said.

“When you are asking for more ‘teeth’, are you only   targeting the Opposition social media?” he asked, pointing out that Abdul Karim  should be fully aware that even PBB has its own media unit which has been spinning lies and slanders against the opposition.

Vernon said: “If we look at social media, the ones that are making so much noise are the social media of the PBB and the BN.

“The latest instigation by BN blogs appeared last night when they put out a list of ‘murtad’ people to disseminate such information with a view to inflame the feelings of Muslims who read the list.

“This is not done by the Opposition, but by the pro-government blogs, Perkasa and extremist Islamic organisations. Are you going to take action against them?”

Vernon also expressed his hope that the people would not be hoodwinked by Abdul Karim.

  2. Since he advocates such measure why not convert the whole system to totalitarianism? The system would wipe out all maladies that perpetuate inequality and injustice upon the rakyats. See whose heads would be riddled with b………first. Person of such stature spewing ridiculous remarks reflected having otak udang galah. Thank him for exposing the qualities of our elected representatives.

  3. Karim whose father was Taib’s bosom buddy and sidekick is another one of those BN scums humiliating Sarawakians.

    He might not have gone for his law studies using public funds, since daddy was a grand sidekick but being a lawyer does entitle him to humliate average Sarawakians it seems. Anyway, he’s a Taib disciple so anything goes.

    Malaysian lawyers, not all, with the BN government are scums! Consider Syed Hamid Al Bar. He had said its all right to raise school buses fares. WHY? He, a well trained lawyer, of Arab descent and from the Kingdom of Johore parents were not complaining and quite happy to pay ! If no one notices prices have risen and incomes have fallen, he must be mad!!! Scum! Another scum like Syed Mokhtar!

    So whats the SOB Karim and whats worth of anything he says, or Nancy Shuklri says or Fatimah says of that tambi Daud???

      Willing parents at fault for school bus fares hike – Syed Hamid Albar

      Harakahdaily – TS, 22 January 2014

      Parents who are fuming over expensive school bus fares should just shut up because according to Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chairman Syed Hamid Albar, you are at fault because you did not file any complaint.

      “The hike will not happen if not because the parents are willing to pay, and so far they only grumbled but no one files any report,” Syed Hamid was quoted saying by news portal The Malaysian Insider.

      “If the parents come forward to make complain and furnish it with evidences, then the matter can be brought to court,” he stressed, adding that without complaints lodged, SPAD could not act on bus operators who raised its fares.

      Last month, Malaysian Federation of School Bus Operators Association (PBBSM) had insisted on imposing a 40 percent increase in fares starting January, 2014 although SPAD yet to make any decision.

      PBBSM chairman Amali Munif Rahmat justified the hike by citing the 20 sen hike on price of diesel last September.

      As an alternative, Syed Hamid said SPAD is considering allowing school bus to carry advertisement, as a side income for the operators in hope that the initiative would help to moderate any fare rise.

  4. China has harsh law on Corruptiion too. This stupip Karim should asked that China’s harsh law on corruption be applied to Taib Mahmud and all corrupted Ministers and lawmakers. Karim, do not talk like you are addressing a group of kindergaten kids in rural Sarawak. The smart kids in Kuching will throw eggs in your face for your stupid statement.

  5. Face it, Abdul Karim, dinosaurs like you just cannot control the message anymore. You only know how to control the old lame stream media but you just don’t get the whole Internet information superhighway thingy. That’s why you sulk like a typical sore loser.

    China “a totalitarian state” leaves neo-colonial Malaysia for dead in development and improving citizens life-style.

    Meanwhile Malaysia slides backwards into the Dark Ages wreaked with neo-Nazi racism and religious fanaticism in the NEP apartheid system.

    They shoot corrupt officials like Najib, Mahathir….& certain CMs & cronies.
