The double standard of Mahathir's government

From FMT (extracts):

No double standards, Putrajaya told after Thai dissident deported

Praphan Pipithnamporn, who was deported to Thailand, and Zakir Naik, who has been granted PR status in Malaysia

PETALING JAYA: A lawyer today questioned Putrajaya’s double standards in deporting a woman wanted by Thailand while resisting attempts to deport preacher Zakir Naik who is facing criminal charges in India.

N Sivananthan, the first Malaysian to become an International Criminal Court counsel, said the government should apply the same principle on Naik, as it did in deporting Praphan Pipithnamporn, who is likely to face charges over her anti-monarchy views.

“If India puts in a request we have to deport him. And if Naik wants to challenge the deportation, he can do so, but he must be held in custody pending disposal of any extradition proceedings,” he told FMT.

Praphan was repatriated last week after she was arrested by Malaysian police in April upon Thailand’s request.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad has defended the move, despite coming under criticism from rights groups who warned that Praphan could be subjected to an unfair trial under Thailand’s tough lese-majeste laws.

“If there is a request, we have no choice but to send her back,” the prime minister told reporters today.

Naik, who has a Malaysian permanent residence status, has been on the run from Indian authorities, but has found support among senior leaders from both the previous Barisan Nasional government and Pakatan Harapan.

Last year, Mahathir said that the government would allow Naik to stay as long as he did not break the law.

On May 2, India’s Enforcement Directorate charged him in absentia with money laundering, accusing him of acquiring about Rs1.9 billion (RM114.5 million) worth of criminal assets.

The agency said Naik had made “inflammatory speeches and lectures” which incited a number of Muslim youths in India to commit terrorist acts.

Let me make a wild guess as to why Praphan Pipithnamporn has been abandoned to her terrible fate-to-come in Thailand - she is NOT a Mamak.

No wakakaka because her punishment at the hands of the Thai royalists and her chances in a Thai jail will be horrendous. Zakir Naik for his infamy is more deserving of such ordeals

But guppies, you morons elected a double-standard monster and even dare to say you adore him? Dumbos.


  1. Strange Jibby who is so free nowadays trolling the internet is silent about this. I expected him to condemn Zakar Naik and demand Toonsie kick him back to India where he belongs.

    Najib invites preacher Zakir Naik for breakfast

    FMT Reporters - April 16, 2016

    PETALING JAYA: The prime minister, Najib Razak, invited controversial preacher Zakir Naik for breakfast at his official residence in Putrajaya this morning.

    Najib disclosed this in a posting on Facebook.

    He said he hoped Zakir, a preacher from India, would convey to the world the message that Malaysia was a country that practised moderation.

    He said Malaysia was constantly striving towards ummah unity to empower Islam.

    Zakir, 50, is in Malaysia on a speaking tour and will be speaking at Bukit Jalil National Hockey Stadium tonight.

    1. The Permanent Residence was granted to Zakir Naik under Ah Jib Gor's watch.
      The 1st case of Putrajaya refusal of an Indian extradition request was made in January 2018 under Ah Jib Gor's watch.

      Yet the Dumbo Moron blogger here still adores Ah Jib Gor.

      I fault the PH government led by Mahathir for not having the determination to take the political heat from the 3Rs mob to do what's right, but his is not the "original sin".

    2. "original sin" wakakaka

      complicity is even worse that that

    3. Let me quote your Pandora's Box theory back to you.
      Once Ah Jib Gor released the Pandora's Box of Zakir Naik spreading the culture of hate in Malaysia, it is hell of a tough job to put it back in the box, especially PH has been in the seat 1 year, and Ah Jib Gor was in control all the previous 10 years.

    4. so Zakir Naik has been here since 2003?

    5. Zakir Naik has been active in Malaysia since 2009, with Ah Jib Gor's blessing.

  2. To post some of yr f*cked choirboys' chant:

    Why everything must be referred to mamak?

    If so, he won't even have time for jamban!

    Thus, can blame the right nincompoop ke?

    BTW, as of gullible guppies, perhaps u r just one of them, who like to blame yr pet cat's indigestion on mamak!

  3. The New Malaysia will introduce a PM Question Time in Parliament, just like in the UK. I expect the opposition MPs from BN and PAS to bring this matter up to Toonsie and demand he send Zakar Naik back to India pronto. OK?

    Parliament to introduce prime minister's question time

    May 11th, 2019

    The Prime Minister's Question Time is one of the three key changes for the parliamentary reforms to be tabled in the parliamentary session in July.

    This was revealed by the deputy speaker Nga Kor Ming during the "New Malaysia - Old Politics" forum at Wisma Methodist in Kuala Lumpur today.

  4. I once lived next door to a neighbour I didn't exactly like. But I nevertheless went out of my way to be civil and polite, and cooperate with him when needed. That's de-rigueur with a next door neighbour.

    So let me make a wild guess, unless there is a really grave reason to act otherwise, Malaysian authorities Will cooperate with any reasonable request from Thailand, including a formal extradition request.

  5. Guess it does not matter who is repatriated back to their country of origin to face their country laws instead of seeking asylum in Malaysia.

    Guess who decides who is to be repatriated? None other than the Home Minister. Why is he so quiet on all these matters?

  6. New Malaysia contradictory standard eh? It is an obvious acknowledgement! Wakakaka..

    My take is we should not pander ZN. He should be packed to India to cross the Rubicon. Allah will protect him.

    1. Arent't you one of those who had a Zakir Naik pin up on the wall during Najib's time ?

    2. There are at least 2 "Unknown" here...and the confusion will continue, since they both refused to distinguish themselves by choosing a different nick. Maybe they like this sort of confusion, wakakaka..diffrent strokes for different folks...my mom's fav program in the 80s

  7. Part of me will always be grateful to Mahathir for his essential role in ensuring the Malays have a rightful place at the table of Malaysia's economy.

    Another part of me cannot forgive what he has done to bring UMNO down from power . and bring DAP into the Federal government.

    1. Spoke like a true blue Umno melayooo, wakakakkaka. Have hope la..see how that By-Hook-or-By-Crook Ratshit flourished as Vice President, no less, in Bersatu.

  8. We should all pray to Allah that Jho Low is caught in India.....then we can do "prisoner-exchange"....ha ha ha...

    1. If Fei chai is now India, there's not even a need to do 'prisoner exchange'....he will stick out like a sore thumb...so "a pastor Raymond Koh" tangkap can be carried out, publicly. Problem solved.
