Another Book Ban! Welcome to the land of Illiterates
September 30, 2010 by Pagalavan Letchumanan
It is very interesting to see in this era and time, there is a country known as Malaysia which still decide what a citizen should and should not read!!!! Probably the authorities are still leaving in stone age. With such a fast developing internet/IT era now, we can download the entire book via the internet or even purchase it online! It will reach your doorstep in a couple of days. The government still thinks that we are school children.
If you think that the facts that are written in the book are wrong then by all means, please sue the guylah………. Obviously they will not do that because it will be like opening a can of worms!
Now, not only they ban books but also cartoons…………………………….. How to develop creativity! Cartoon-o-phobia………………
Our Mamak Kutty said that he wants to sue Barry Wain for the book ” Malaysian Maverick” but till today no action mah…………………
BTW, each time when they ban a book, it only makes the book a best seller! Now, people will be buying it over the net and from Singapore……………… I bought “Malaysian Maverick” from Singapore!
It reminds me of Hitler. If anyone were to read the history of Hitler and ” Ketuanan Aryan“, you will find a lot of similarities between Malaysia and Germany during Hitler’s era. Remember ” Burn the Book” era of Hitler! Hitler’s propaganda is very much similar to Biro Tatanegara’s racial and religious indoctrination. I think our Mamak Kutty is reincarnation of Hitler! What UMNO is practising is exactly what the Nazi party practised in Germany before World War, use your enemies(Jews ) to the maximum then screw them. Most of the German’s technology then were invented by Jews but he turned against them for his political survival.
BTW, please visit Malaysia Today website (www.malaysia-today.net
) by Raja Petra (RPK) who has released confidential letters/investigations paper from Anti Corruption Agency!! A good read and you will know why MACC is another component party of BN! Sayonara………………………….
Kim Quek’s book banned
The Home Ministry has issued a ban order against the book ‘The March to Putrajaya – Malaysia’s New Era is at Hand’, for inciting hatred against the constitution.
The ministry’s secretary-general Mahmood Adam said the book, written by author Kim Quek, is “not suitable for general reading”.
He said the book contained elements of “baseless accusations and speculations” against national leaders and could incite public hatred and anger.
On Aug 19, Chua Seong Khoon, a representative of the book’s distributor Gerak Budaya, said that some copies of The March to Putrajaya were seized by the authorities from a Popular Bookstore outlet in Kuantan Megamall, Pahang.
A week later, publishing firm Oriengroup Sdn Bhd executive director Low Chee Chong was questioned by police at his office in Cheras in relation to the book.
“Three police officers from Bukit Aman came to my office and they questioned me under Section 112 (of the Criminal Procedure Code as a witness),” said Low.
