No2ISA march 010809 – Lets make this one count

Follow delCapo on Twitter during the march… hopefully pictures can be uploaded “live” here too.

All those heading down…

  • Go early
  • Bring mineral water (for drinking and in case FRU gets trigger happy)
  • DO NOT fall into ANY group’s instigation for violence…. we come in PEACE! Stay Cool!!…



Yes2ISA vs No2ISA, Pro ISA vs Anti ISA…

Anyone who lives in Klang Valley today would have experienced extra heavy traffic all day…. largely due to the numerous police roadblocks all around. Why? There’s a high profile “ISA Day”…

ISA Day? Yup… it was supposed to be an “Anti-ISA” day, championed by GMI… but the so-called Pro-ISA parties have also decided to join in the fun…

Their (Pro ISA) distractors may argue that these are pro-UMNO/BN supporters in disguise.. there to possibly:

  1. give the mainstream media an angle to sell the fact that Malaysia still needs ISA
  2. play “nice guys” and disperse when the police tell them to (so Anti ISA will look bad)
  3. threaten Anti ISA and create unrest.

Lets get a short lowdown of both sides’ causes

Pro-ISA or Yes2ISA

  • ISA is “key” to maintaining peace and national security in the country…
  • errr…. that’s all really.

Anti-ISA or No2ISA

  1. Allows for dentention without trials , therefore violation of basic Human Rights  (read article)
  2. Anti-democracy
  3. Malaysia’s ISA Act gives absolute power to the Home Minister and police for arrest… resulting in abuse of power, political arrests.
  4. “Out of date” law made in the 1960’s to counter the communists ressurgence.
  5. Check out the 1960’s debate in parliament before ISA was passed as a law.

Now… here’s the thing… No2ISA groups recommends repealling the ISA Act and replace it with a comprehensive “Anti-terrorist Act” with check and balances (with no room for abuse and political arrests) so Malaysia can be safe from terrorist threat without violation of basic human rights.

Yes2ISA and Pro ISA…  i think you should pack up and go home =]


Another Death In Custody, another cover-up

Another “accident”?



Nice article by Tunku ‘Abidin Muhriz

MY cousin who brazenly identifies herself as a staunch Malay-Muslim conservative remarked that half my Facebook friends seem to be non-Malay, non-Muslim and rather liberal. Well, I replied somewhat irksomely, I would have been living in a box if, after 12 years of merantau, I knew only Malay-Muslim conservatives.

I then went on to emphasise the demographic variety of my list: among my schoolmates there’s a Tibetan Buddhist, a Nigerian Catholic, an American Hindu, a Jew against Zionism (who would don orthodox Jewish robes and march against Israeli aggression), and a smattering who were confirmed into the Church of England. I pointed out that among my Muslim friends there is variety too: there’s my Canadian Ismaili colleague, my Iranian-English Twelver university mate, and my formerly Protestant friend who was so moved by Jalaluddin Rumi that she is now a Sufi.

As my cousin – our shared ancestor is Sultan Zainal Abidin III, who I am told included both Maliki and Shafie scholars in his court – was digesting this, I capped it off by revealing that one of my squash buddies is an atheist who quotes Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion (not banned in Malaysia) in between points (he will now call me and scream that he is in fact an agnostic).

Speaking with such people about their faith, or lack thereof, is interesting and educational and not, despite the paranoia of “religious” authoritarians everywhere, scary or subversive.

But the tone of my Malaysian Presbyterian friend was rather urgent when, after the story of the Al-Islam reporters who had attended Catholic mass in an undercover investigation emerged, he confided that he too had seen a Muslim in his usual church, and he was worried about his motives. Apparently evidence had been seen confirming that this chap was a Muslim but he would not admit to it, despite the church literature stating “for non-Muslims only”. The concern was that either he was similarly an undercover journalist and thus desecrating the sanctity of the place of worship, or that he was bait who was gathering material that would implicate the church in propagating Christianity among Muslims. If this were successful it would be catastrophic for the church.

The level of distrust was palpable, and I wondered how have we come to this? Why are there Malaysians who are so completely inured with this fallacious “us” and “them” mindset where “their” group must treat the “other” with suspicion or outright hate? Indeed, we were given a nasty dose of such irrationality in the charges of racism following the awful death of Teoh Beng Hock, which was tragedy for all Malaysians.

Several conferences I’ve attended cite the political expediency of deliberately conflating race and religion which has led to a situation where many events in the public sphere are now ostentatiously tinged with division.  But there’s more to it than that. It’s not merely that much of the public don’t trust the institutions of state, which is why the calls for a royal commission of inquiry were so loud (I doubt its establishment will satisfactorily assuage those who had great hope for the MACC). But it’s also that the institutions of state don’t trust non-state institutions.

On the fiftieth anniversary of St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Tunku Abdul Rahman, the future first secretary-general of the OIC, sent a note of congratulations thus: “All men of goodwill and peace must fight against poverty… so that the children of God may live in peace and share the fruits of prosperity and plenty. I know that St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is doing all it can to spread the message among Malaysians in all corners of this country and I have no doubt it will succeed. May I wish the church in the coming years all success and the blessing of God.”

What is profound about this statement is not merely that it is a statement of hope but also an indication of trust that non-Muslim Malaysian congregations would contribute to the national cause. This is the same man who, after establishing Perkim, constantly stressed that “Malaysia must continue as a secular state with Islam as the official religion.”

In 1968, the then mentri besar of Negri Sembilan, Tan Sri Datuk Dr Mohd Said Mohamed, laid the foundation stone, blessed by a bishop, of St Mark’s Anglican Church in Seremban. It was being rebuilt after a fire had gutted it, and the federal and state governments made a donation to help in the construction work. That, surely, is what our first Rukun Negara is all about.

“Politicise” and “Evoke Racial Sentiments”

Two favourite terms of BN and UMNO fellas over the past week when talking about Beng Hock’s death…

Is this the fruit of the new training program DPM was talking about??… all of a sudden Nazri and the folks from UMNO Ampang are singing these terms like in a chorus…

delCapo would like to ANALyse these 2 terms for all of you to judge….

1) Politicise (pls find a good article by SKY in Malaysiakini on this termology)

Question: Who is politicising Beng Hock’s death??


  • Beng Hock  was a DAP political secreatary (as Art Harun and Nat Tan rightfully stated)…
  • Beng Hock was called in to MACC office BECAUSE he was a DAP political secretary.
  • The Kelana Jaya rally “Justice for Beng Hock” was partially a political rally by PR leaders for a fallen comrade…. attended by thousands of concerned citizens.

Yes… it’s politics… no 2 ways about it…. it’s a human tragedy in politics…. How to stop politicising something that is already IN politics.


  • Nazri’s mouth shot out even before the police could figure out where Beng Hock’s body was… Not politicising?
  • BNs other mouths (like the 60-strong Ampang fellas) standing on the street with banners and shouting slogans to gain brownie points (as if they really give 2 shits about MACC, Police and Beng Hock’s family) – Not Politicising??
  • MCA’s visit (President and Youth head no less)  to Beng Hock’s family, Najib’s PA visit to assure Beng Hock’s mother… the wreaths from BN to a DAP PA’s sudden death (accident or suicide according to BN’s own people)…. Errr…. since when they so rajin?? Not Politics at all, of course… pure heart??
  • There were no signs of BN even at an opposition leader’s funeral… not signs of them at Kugan’s funeral… or any of the 3,000 death in custody cases over past 20 years.

SO both sides also politicising … sadly, it’s because it IS politics!! delCapo is disgusted by BOTH sides at times as the line of respect for a deceased was often crossed….

BUT.. for any one side to tell, even WARN, the other side(s) to Stop Politicising??? That’s politicising in itself… and bloody hypocritical… so just shut the fuck up!

2) “Evoke Racial Sentiments”

Once again… the word “Race” is dragged into politics…. how original.

But who is actually the one evoking racial sentiments??

BN/UMNO is telling Pakatan Rakyat NOT to use Beng Hock’s case to “Evoke Racial Sentiments”… Evoke (to remind, to awake an idea…)

Let’s see..


  • Kelana Jaya – more than 3000+ … ONE PURE BANGSA!! Check out the pix here
  • Speeches by an ONE BANGSA ONLY  line up which included Khalid Ibrahim, Husam Musa of PAS, Tunku Aziz, Xavier, … appearances by Karpal and Gobind Singh, next to the DAP reps…. hosted by 2 PKR MCs …
  • Which Bangsa? BANGSA MALAYSIA!!!
  • Kit Siang and Guan Eng spoke in 3 languages about justice and bangsa Malaysia politics- bloody racist father and son… evoking racial sentiments! hehehe
  • Beng Hock’s funeral….2000+ attended.
  • Including his friends and family… and colleagues from DAP…
  • Chegu Bard, Anwar were there too…. to evoke racial sentiments?? yes, they are telling the Malaysian Chinese to raise up and line their nanchakus and chicken chopping knives with non-chinese blood… yes… i can see that


  • A very independent Berita Harian’s brilliant article by a very secular and non-partisan Managing Editor of NST, in respond to nothing.
  • UMNO divisions in Ampang and Pandan Indah… a bunch of the most secular mix of Malaysians WARNING opposition parties (plural) to stop playing the racial cards, in respond to the repeated deafening ZERO racist remarks by Pakatan Rakyat’s leaders over the past week.

Now readers, evoke your own judgement…. who is the one playing racial cards and keep using the “R” word in print and in voices???

When will these goons learn ?? We are all one RACE-  Human Race…. One Bangsa – Malaysian….


We want APPLE… Orange just won’t DO!! Get it??

What we want – Royal Commision with credible and independent panel of commisioners to inquire into the death of Teoh Beng Hock.

What we get after nearly a week – A Royal Commision with dunno who as commisioners looking at ONLY the procedures of MACC… plus a Magistrate’s inquiry into the death of Beng Hock… with the Police announcing that they will wrap up investigation BEFORE the inquiry can start!

Both maybe fruits… but different means different lah!!… Don’t try to smoke this, ok?

It reminds delCapo also of a private joke we used to have with parents:

Kid : “Dad, can I have a 100 bucks?”

Dad: “50 bucks!?!?!?! Wadaya want 20 bucks for?? here’s 10 bucks”

Well Najib and the BN government… we are not kids and you are certainly NOT some fucken parent…. So stop trying to fool us, u idiots!! NOT WORKING ANYMORE!!!

here’s a vid… for some laughs…


R.I.P – SC Chan aka Tony Thien

SC ChanAnother day, another sad news of the loss of a comrade… found out on Malaysiakini that SC CHan had passed.

delCapo only really met him for one day (even though we exchanged emails and read each other’s writings)….. when he took care of us (Zorro, Haris and SKY) the first day we arrived in Kuching… leading up to the Batang Ai by elections nomination day.

Thanks to him we made new friends that day… and put faces to names of our fellow blogtivists from Sarawak.

Nice chap…. I always address him as Mr Chan.

May your soul Write In Peace, Mr Chan…. Tony Thien will be missed by the readers.
