It's a fitting and very much welcome eve-of Merdeka news-present for all of us Malaysians.
But what has been far more troubling is the report that the court:
... ordered him to defend himself on an alternative charge under Section 4 (1)(c) of the Sedition Act 1948.
The alternative charge was for publishing an article entitled “The coming of the Chinese with the British colonialists a form of intrusion” on the Isma website two years ago.
The court ordered Abdullah Zaik to pay the fine or serve two years in prison if he failed to do so.
He was charged with committing the offence at Isma headquarters in Bangi on May 6, 2014.
Abdullah Zaik later told reporters that he accepted the court’s decision.
And just what did he meant by “The coming of the Chinese with the British colonialists a form of intrusion”?
Did that mean ISMA has been a racist rather than an Islamist?
If so, then ISMA has brought enormous shame to Allah swt.
