Musa Hasan's deadly prediction

OMG! Another 'Arab Spring' prediction, and this time it came from former IGP Musa Hasan, a man whom we once trusted in maintaining public order and security, an experienced police boss who should really understand what a country like Malaysia is made off and how it differs from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Yemen.

His prediction that the loser of the upcoming 13th general election would subscribe to the bloodiest Arab Spring riots and street demonstration is already causing uneasiness and worries to the public, especially voters.

Musa is throwing a deadly imagination that could spark panic among Malaysians, and those who buy his words would start to prepare for the worst - buying firearm illegally, hording food supply and be ready for 'come what may'.

This is extremely dangerous. The impact of his prediction could cause tense nationwide, especially after Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak dissolves the Parliament to pave the way for the national poll, expected between March and early June.

I don't know on which side of politics Musa is but I believe Malaysians have had enough of bloodshed, racial backlash and bad political rows. Majority of the Malays, Chinese, Indians and others do understand that Malaysian politics will not lead to civil war and confrontation of any sorts.

However, Musa looks so convinced that the Arab Spring will erupt in the country, putting leaders of Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat in the same boat as the heads of the warring factions in Syria, Yemen and Egypt.
The former IGP also lamented that the fight to curb violent coups has been hindered with the repeal of the Internal Security Act (ISA), a British-enacted law that allowed detention without trial. The Act was recently repealed and replaced with another security law, as a part of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s promise to widen civil liberties.
Previously, former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad claimed there was an opposition conspiracy to replicate the uprisings should PR fail to wrest Putrajaya.
He had alleged that Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had spoken openly about it in an interview with an Australian media recently.
Several leaders from the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition have also made similar allegations.
In retaliation, PR leaders said the accusations were intended to coerce voters against backing at the upcoming polls an opposition that was steadily growing in strength.
Yes, we cannot discount on the possibility that there would be some troubles after general election, especially when the opposition is all set and confidence of wresting Putrajaya from BN. It will be a 'do or die' game for Anwar Ibrahim's-led Pakatan Rakyat.

PR could pose a danger here, and not BN. As ambition precedes their emotion, they have more potential to become troublemakers on a small scale. Unless they choose to register a violence one, the police and the army will be ready for them.

I am also unsure what was Musa's motive when making the prediction but it didn't augur well in achieving racial assimilation and inter-religious understanding in the country. We have observe some teething problems to address the two most sensitive issues, and with such a prediction, I am afraid if some irresponsible politicians will use it as additive to their election campaign.

Musa didn't really face much problem during his tenancy as the police IGP, hence making him looks inferior than Ismail Omar who braced two Bersih rallies and a few other related demonstrations. And I guess Musa wanted some credits by coming up with his own prediction.

The rakyat will not allow anything to disrupt their peaceful life, the asset that has brought about prosperity and safety since Independence. Should any party embarks on such a dirty and filthy politics, I think the rakyat will be more ready than the police themselves in confronting them.

But still, Musa's prophecy is rather inciting one to happen!

he wants to caue panic to the people and the nation. what kind of an ex-top police officer he is by making such a prediction when he himself knows well that it will not happen in malaysia. i think the opposition too realised that they must admit losers if bn wins.

You are wrong. Malaysians have not had enough of bloodshed. Another 13 May is needed.

all over said...

he left a bad legacy of a non-performing chief of police. and that is why is trying to redeem what was lost during his service... he wants attention now, it looks to me. so, he got to create something that the public would believe!

seburuk mana pun orang kita berpolitik, tak mungkin mereka sanggup menjahanamkan negara sendiri dan berbunuh-bunuhan sesama sendiri.

ini bukan tradisi rakyat malaysia zaman moden ni.

mereka juga sedar akan kekuatan pasukan polis dan tentera....

For all the BRIMs, KRIMs, PRIMAs,funds for vernacular schools not recognised under the constitution,and lately Psy Gangnam style for the feel-good factor, they still want to change the govt.,
and worse,threatening to create riot and chaos if they lose.
Well we the peace loving Malaysian rakyat have this to say to the KDN & PDRM, as protectors of the peace, tell them on our behalf ..ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!.
If chaos and anarchy is what they want,just bring it on.
It will not happen here in Malaysia because the majority of the rakyat are still sensible and not stupid.

Saperkara lagi nak di nyatakan kat sini, si barua yang menunjukkan isyarat lucah kat SPB Permaisuri Agung tu macam mana.
Kebiadaban beliau tidak bolih di maafkan begitu saja. Kepanasan meruap sedang di rasai olih setiap penduduk tanah melayu ni sekarang. Senang aje ke mohon maaf , tutup cerita. Pilihanraya nak datang ke, itu lain hal, maruah raja raja, maruah anak anak tanah melayu perlu di lindungi. Masih ramai yang ingat kebangsatan dan kebiadaban wakil wakil daripada parti pembangkang sewaktu pertabalan SPB Yang di Petuan Agung, senyap aje, apa cerita. Tak nak ambik tindakkan kah.? Sebab itu lah kebiadaban ni berlangsungan di jalanan sekarang. Jikalau lah dah tonggak tidak mahu atau pun tidak mampu mempertahankan kedaulatan raja raja , siapa lagi. Jikalau mau undi rakyat , terutama nya anak anak tanah melayu, show you'got the intergrity. Stop playing politics when its involved the constituional monarchies. Drive them hard, we are behind you.

Every man has a right of say in a democracy. So does the erswhile IGP and if he had spoken on a topic that he was/is a specilist in you listen up.

Can't you honour that man that much?
Or do you think your assessment on the matter is superior to his. At least give him the benefit of doubt instead of running him down like you do a frog.
