Ambiga yesterday lodged a police report about a text message threatening to 'kill' her. She was worried and said that from now on, she must be on high alert wherever she goes. More bodyguards will be engaged to look after her safety.
However, she was fast to point fingers at Barisan Nasional, especially Umno. She believes PM Najib is responsible for hiring some thugs to kill her. And her allies in Pakatan Rakyat too are accusing the government of wanting to get rid of her.
What a load of craps!
Actually Ambiga is thrilled with all this. She really likes it. The attention she gets after Bersih 2.0 and Bersih 3.0 and the support from some foreign agents are expanding her head.
I believe this is what she was looking for. Some elements of fear that the government will subscribe to a la Mafia way of wiping out Bersih and the Opposition. She enjoys the 'trauma' as another victory clause to put all the blames on the government.
I don't know what was the content of her police report but one thing is clear. She wants the government to take full responsibility for that threatening text message on her mobile phone. She is all convinced that it came from the government agent.
The police has yet to investigate the matter but this seasoned lawyer was already accusing the government. She forgot the fact that majority of Malaysians did not support Bersih and that text message could have been sent by someone who really hates her.
The government has no reason to hire any thugs to assassinate her. No point at all. No Malaysians will go to that extreme unless they are really lunatic. Only sick minds will do that.
Why didn't Ambiga consider that someone close to her was involved in sending out the text message? Someone who have been with her for a long time but got nothing out of his or her support for Bersih?
What if someone from the Opposition did that, just like George Bush who demolished the New York World Trade Center and blamed it on al-Qaeda and Iraq in order to get the 'permit' to attack Iraq and killed its people and leader Saddam Hussein?
Many car bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan were the job of the American soldiers. They killed one or two of their comrades just to get a good excuse to killed thousands of Iraqi and Afghan civilians. Its a blame game to destroy Iraq.
I believe Ambiga was looking forward to such a threat when she is fully aware that she can walk safely anywhere in Malaysia. She also knows that the government will not harm her and will not advocate to such a tactic to destroy her.
She feels like a hero now, something like Aung San Suu Kyi. However, after some many threats to her life over the past 25 years, Suu Kyi remains intact. Even the junta didn't harm her and Suu Kyi didn't even feel threatened.
But Ambiga is all excited about it. A death threat means how significant she is in the eyes of the world and to the eyes of those who despise her. However, the government does not hate her. Its the rakyat, the people much affected by Bersih.
Why didn't she think of that? The threat had nothing to do with the government. And I personally don't think it came from any political party or organisation. It must be the job of someone who hates her for what she did.
So, please stop pointing fingers at the government. The government will not hire anybody to harm you, let alone stop you from doing what you want!
