“The joys and the hopes, the griefs and the anxieties of the men of this age, especially those who are poor or in any way afflicted, these are the joys and hopes, the griefs and anxieties of the followers of Christ.”A powerful message to all christian to stand up and be accountable for what happen in our beloved land.
Under this inhumane law the BN government detains without trial citizens of this country who have not been charged with specific violations of any law in an open court. The continued use of the ISA goes against internationally accepted human rights standards. The use of the ISA makes a mockery of the teachings of Jesus Christ which uphold human dignity and natural justice.
We pray now for all those who are currently detained and for their loved ones; we also remember those who were detained and tortured in the past under this inhumane law.
As followers of Christ and Citizens of Malaysia we must continue to condemn this law and urge the government to repeal it. There is no place for this law on this earth.We must all stand united for freedom of speech and expression within the boundaries of truth and justice. We must reject all attempts to split us along racial and religious line.
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord." Luke 4:18-19
My father who before this openly supported ISA and think that it is still needed to keep the country safe also went for the special mass. I was surprise to hear that he wanted to go during dinner. Couldn't be prouder, when we stand side by side, singing out loud hyms, together with 'Suara Rakyat' to denouce ISA. "ISA must go, ISA must go now!" we sang in union.
There are few online petitions to call for Abolish of ISA, please read them and sign them if u want to be accounted for the future of our country.
So what do u say my friends?
Calling all doctor and student bloggers and anyone who can help. The Government has begun to arrest and jail doctors on a technicality - not registering their clinic with the PHFSA. This act treats doctors like common criminals. These are community doctors who have not committed a serious crime but instead face an incredibly harsh sentence for their technical lapse. Dr Basmullah Yusof, a family practitioner, is the first victim of this legislation. He was sentenced despite not having legal counsel representing him, despite pleading for leniency (he had wanted to sell the clinic anyway and is in financial trouble) and as he could not pay the hefty RM 120,000 fine, he is now in Kajang prison.

The ex-Health Minister had promised that the Act would be used only against Bogus doctors and Bogus clinics. Yet, we see that legitimate licensed APC holding medical practitioners are now being targeted.
