I agree with Rais Yatim when he suggested that the government should cautiously review the Internal Security Act (ISA) which saw Raja Petra Kamaruddin slapped with a 2-year detention today.
ISA, dubbed by many, including those of the Western leaders as a draconian law, may contain too many loopholes and should be amended into something else which is in tandem with present humanitarian context. However, it may take time.
RPK is very unfortunate to be another victim of the law but he still deserves to be punished for what he has done. As to how the government categorise his 'threat' to the country, it is not important as nobody should feel 'too free' to say or write anything that may jeopardise the national stability.
This is not a cowboy country where everyone is entitled for 'a free for all'. We live by the set of law which secures everybody's interest. Should the law contains unfavourable act, it must be reviewed.
Many objected to my earlier posting about RPK's detention but not few supported it. If Malaysians are opinionly-divided over the ISA issue, then the government should do something about it.
I am not talking as a Muslim or a Malay but as a Malaysian who favors a peaceful place to live and 'cari makan' without having to resort to dirty tactics to survive, socially and politically.
