Be more careful, bloggers!

That's what happened if you think you are free to post anything on your blog, that you are not bound to any sensitivities.

In Indonesia, a blogger called BATAK caused an uproar among the Muslims for his posting depicting the Prophet Muhammad SAW.

His article which belittled Islam and made fun of the Prophet ha triggered alarm across Indonesia, a country with more than 260 million Muslims. The police has to issue advisory for the people to be calm amid rising tensions in some parts of Java and Sumatra.

Despite a promise to conduct full investigation and detect the culprit. As to whether he is a Muslim or not has yet to be ascertained.

In Malaysia, bloggers, writers, journalists and the rakyat have been reminded from time to time not to 'play with fire' by posting religious and race sentiments or even to call an open debate (forum) to discuss about it.

Religion and race issues tend to develop into time-bombs...

WHICH SIDE ARE YOU, ACTUALLY BUJAI? THE GOVERNMENT? OPPOSITION? OR YOU ARE JUST SITTING ON THE FENCE?

I THINK THE TIME HAS COME FOR MALAYSIANS TO SPEAK OUT ON ANY ISSUE PROVIDED THAT THEY THINK FIRST BEFORE MAKING ANY STATEMENT OF POSTING

ISNT MALAYSIA A FREE COUNTRY YET?

i am of the opinion that bloggers and journalists in malaysia should be more tactful with what they write.

if we dont give priority to the peaceful aspect of the country, we may become worse than indonesia or pakistan or thailand.

Saudara,

I think we've covered this ground before and while I do agree with your "tread carefully" cautionary message, the web is still very much a minefield where morality is concerned.

The slightly more responsible amongst us would proceed with caution all the same while the more extreme would do zilch.

A take it or leave i situation, really..

The best we can do is to stick to the thin line each of us have in making our thoughts heard.

Wasalam
