Stop double standard, Patriot group tells MCMC
PETALING JAYA: Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan (Patriot) has called upon the Communications and Multimedia Ministry to block Raja Petra Kamarudin’s blog, Malaysia Today, and not practice double standards when it comes to media restrictions.
“How come Malaysia Today, which often writes articles that are accusatory, seditious, full of lies and hatred, has not been blocked?
“While Malaysia Chronicle, Syedoutsidethebox, Sarawak Report and several other blogs and alternative media have been blocked, why not Malaysia Today?” Patriot president Brigadier-General (Rtd) Mohd Arshad Raji said at a press conference today.
Meanwhile, Arshad said that Raja Petra, who remains in self-exile in the United Kingdom, should also be brought back to Malaysia to face his pending cases.
Arshad was referring to an online article carrying a corruption allegation against Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali.

RPK instigating violence and hatred, says Patriots Association
PETALING JAYA: The National Association of Patriots (PPK) has taken blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin to task for instigating violence, hatred and fear among Malaysians.
Referring to a blog post written by Raja Petra on Oct 17, the NGO of retired military and police officers said such conduct was “totally irresponsible”.
“We normally take no heed of the writings of any blogger, especially if one is a mouthpiece of a political party. But when one becomes an instigator of violence, we cannot remain silent.”
In his blog post, Raja Petra had claimed that DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang and his party was “pushing Malaysia to the brink of a civil war”.
“If you think the many racial and religious conflicts that occurred since Sept 2, 1945 till May 13, 1969 are tragedies, wait till you see this next one.
“This next one, which is going to be more like a civil war, is going to be about a multitude of issues, race and religion being only two of the many reasons.
“And this time it is not going to just be in Johor, Selangor, Penang, Bukit Mertajam, Perak, Kuala Lumpur, and so on. It is going to be nationwide and the toll is going to be very high indeed,” he said.
Raja Petra also said Lim and DAP had been “testing the patience of the Malays and Muslims”.
“It is almost like Kit Siang and DAP are openly declaring war on the Malays, Islam and the Raja-Raja Melayu,” he added.
However, PPK president Brig Gen (Rtd) Mohamed Arshad Raji slammed Raja Petra’s remarks, calling them irresponsible.
“We do not see anyone or politician ‘openly declaring war on the Malays, Islam and the Raja-Raja Melayu’, as what RPK suggested,” he said, referring to Raja Petra by his initials.
“One has to read the lines and between lines to see how cleverly RPK has used historical events out of context to make his disjointed arguments. It is clear that he has intent to instigate not only violence, but hatred and fear as well,” Mohamed Arshad said in a statement.
Pointing out that many in PPK had served in the security forces for more than 30 years, he said they had experienced enough hardship and seen enough violence.
“We hate violence. We treasure peace and harmony. The peace we enjoy today is hard fought and hard earned. As such, no individual or organisation that instigates violence will escape a piece of our mind.”
