Backman on Malaysia

I am sure most of you have read the first article written by the Australian Columnist Michael Backman. If you have not, here it is.

Backman received more than 600 emails from readers, mostly Malaysians, and most importantly, mostly supportive!

And as he promised, here is the second article on Malaysia again. Two paragraphs actually caught my attention. They are:

And then there are the corruption allegations. In 1995, in a report to the attorney-general, the public
prosecutor said there was a prima facie basis for Rafidah’s arrest and prosecution on five counts of

An opposition activist later acquired official documents that appeared to confirm this. He was jailed for
two years under the Official Secrets Act simply for possessing them. Rafidah, on the other hand, was not
even charged.

If you ask me what I think of both articles, I think he is God damn right!

    I’ve read this article and fully supported on what he said.
    These ministers who accuse him for not knowing much about Malaysia, great.. Just let Malaysian speak freely then…

    When Malaysian speaks — they said your touching sensitive issues, helping own race.. bla bla bla
    When a foreigner speaks — they said he is just foreigner, he don’t know anything about Malaysia.
