No holds barred to shut RPK up
SEPT 24 – Raja Petra Kamarudin holds almost nothing sacred and has had almost everyone scared with his writings.
Those writings – a heady brew of facts, innuendos, speculation and hearsay – have now landed the Malaysia-Today news portal editor two years in the Kamunting Detention Camp, sparking outrage for most and relief for those at the receiving end of his scathing articles.
His detention is ostensibly for articles that have ridiculed Islam, Malaysia’s official religion, leading the police to recommend incarceration under the Internal Security Act. “His articles could arouse anger among Muslims,” Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar was quoted as saying by local newspapers.
