Former IGP Tan Sri Rahim Noor, best remembered for his stinging punch that blue-blackened Anwar Ibrahim's eye in 1998, today dropped a bombshell to the rise of human rights groups in the country, likening them to communism.
Such a trend, he said would lead to the questioning of “accepted truths” like the social contract.
“Every century has its wave... and we cannot avoid being hit by this wave... Now, it’s the human rights wave... Before that, it was the wave of Marxism, Socialism,” he said after officiating the 2nd Perkasa general assembly at Dewan Centrum in KL.
Calling the human rights movement a new religion, Rahim warned that civil liberties activists saw the US and UK as their spiritual home and drew parallels to how the Comintern had engineered the global spread of communism from its Moscow base.
“Now we see many things being questioned because of the human rights wave. They question the self-evident [social contract], as though they’re trivialising what was agreed upon.”
He added that many leftist Malay leaders during the post-World War II period had been tricked into thinking the communists had their interests at heart but realised later that they were being used by “wolves in sheep’s clothing”.I tend to agree with him.
Human rights group and some NGOs are acting like 'rulers and legislators of the governments', attacking any country to their whim and fancy. Those who sit at the helm of such organisations are usually agents of the Opposition.
In Malaysia, some groups get foreign fundings, including from the radical groups in the US, many of which are linked to Israel.
