Release Teresa Kok - MP with the biggest majority in GE2008

Did you know that Ms Teresa Kok is the Member of Parliament who garnered the biggest majority in General Elections 2008? - Her Majority was 36,492

Carol Chew Chee Lin (BN - MCA)10738
>> * Teresa Kok Suh Sim (OPP - DAP) 47230 Maj: 36492

Komala Devi M Perumal (BN - MIC) 35899
>> Manikavasagam Sundaram (OPP - PKR) 48196 Maj: 12297

With regard to the number of votes obtained by a Member of Parliament, she came a close second to Manikavasagam Sundaram (PKR) the MP of Kapar who obtained 48,196 votes, whilst Teresa Kok obtained 47230 votes.

* Of course Kapar had 112,224 registered voters, and had a turnout of 78.1% voter turnout on Election Day - i.e. 87644

* Seputeh on the other hand had 76891, and on election day only 58,207 (75.7%)voters turned out to vote.

When Teresa Kok speaks in Parliament, she was chosen by 47230 votes, and her voice must be heard.

If one were to study the rise of Teresa Kok, it must be noted that her majority kept increasing election after election - signifying that she was indeed a good MP who was loved by her costituents, irregardless of ethnicity, religion or cultural. I believe that Teresa is a promoter of 'security, peace and public order' and hence her arrest and detention is certainly unjustified. But alas, the laws do not allow us to challenge the "reasons" for her detention.

I now would like to call for the immediate and unconditional release of Teresa Kok, who is also the de facto Timbalan Menteri Besar of Selangor.

I call also for the immediate and unconditional release of Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng, Raja Petra Kamarudin, P. Uthayakumar, M Manoharan & all others that are currently being detained/restricted under those draconian laws that allow for Detention Without Trial, which includes the ISA.

I also call for the immediate repeal of the ISA and all laws that allow for Detention Without Trial.

Well balanced commentary - took the words out of the mouth of many.

Hats off Charles and let it be said, Theresa Kok, just like the late Kak Endon are almost saints when compared to the fine specimen we see in UMNO.

As a public servant, Theresa ranks high but the road is still a long one. And as for Kak Endon - her only blemish was to marry an Idiot.

Regards and no apologies on my end

The Courage to Build a New Malaysia.

The year is 2008. This is the year most Malaysians finally woke up from a deep slumber. Most Malaysians were just too busy earning their living and building up their lives to take notice that times have changed and the idealism spouted by our founding Fathers have still not been accomplished for this country even today.

It was not so long ago in 1957 and then for our fellow East Malaysians in 1963 when the ideals and dreams preached by the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj (Bapa Kemerdekaan and Bapa Malaysia) for Malaysia were first announced and was greeted with joy in the hearts and minds of all Malaysians. The late Tunku Abdul Rahman had a dream and ideals, just like Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and many others including the prophets over the history of mankind.

Many a times such dreams were hijacked and led astray under the guise of nationalistic, racist and religious idealism by so called politicians and self declared and appointed righteous and religious persons (Little Napoleons). Individuals who have risen to continue some of such idealisms are gagged, isolated, bankcrupted, blasphemied, rehabilitated or worst jailed, for it is deemed not in consonance with the dreams and idealism of the elected parties agendas.

Laws are legislated and passed at whim in Parliament to change the idealism of the Supreme Law of the Land (The Malaysian Constitution) and to cloak such party and individual agendas. It is true, Malaysia, conforms to the democratic process as practiced by most western countries in elections (even though tainted but unproven). But once given the trust to be elected as a leader or representative of the people, party and individual idealism overtook national idealism, and The Jeykll and Hyde personality emerged to be repeated over and over again at each and every election and by-election.

Malaysians have being led astray for so long, that what is right is blurred, what is wrong is tolerated, what is evil is condoned, what is fair is pouted as unfair, what is immoral becomes moral and corruption and close one eye need to become a part of our accepted daily lives. Jealousy, hatred, greed, racism, plundering and satanism starts to breed in Malaysian minds, and brothers, friends and fellow Malaysians were looked upon as enemies or as inferior human beings. Once a while, such nets were cast ashore to include anything to do with other countries or other races which do not belong to one's own race or religious beliefs.

The minds and souls of Malaysians are so polluted and poisoned for so many years that it seems that Malaysia is the only all correct country and we should rule the world by our way. Examples of countries which follows Malaysia or is it we following them are, such as North Korea, Zimbabwe and Israel. What justifications can you tell your own generations or future Malaysian generations that what you are doing to fellow mankind and more so to your own fellow Malaysians that it is righteous and correct, when, it is at the expense and sufferings of your own human kind and fellow Malaysians?

Can you say to them I did it to follow the orders and teachings of God or party political agendas? Who gave you such inspirations and idealism? Do not absolve your own wicked mind and greed nor take a ride on someone else wicked mind and greed. Do not pick and choose in the Books of God nor the man-made laws to justify or suit your own twisted and idealistic minds. You can fool others due to their ignorance or emotions at some time but you can't fool forever a man's conscience nor your own children or hopefully one day your own when such enlightenment comes to you.

The courage to change things which are not right in Malaysia nor achieve the ideals of the Founding Fathers is not impossible. Most Malaysians have woken up to the fact that the future is going to be determined by it's own citizens thru their own conscience guided by their own religious beliefs to live a harmonious and productive life of correctness and not the type of political, racial or religious correctness as preached.

Parties and their own agendas do not take priority over the Founding Fathers ideals and hopes of all Malaysians. Religion and principles are as a guide to your own conscience to make sure whoever is the leader do not lead Malaysians nor society astray.

For in the end, what is just and right should surely overule anything else for any leader or their party agendas.

Does your Representative of the People (Wakil Rakyat) or You! have the courage?

Teresa is quite outspoken and very much in the limelight which accounts for her popularity. Her huge wining majority during GE12 is also another contributing factor. Hence she became a target of Toyol's mischief and jealousy.

Toyol has been a trouble maker since GE12 and constantly snapping at Pakatan's heel over inconsequential matters. He has gone too far this time with his false accusation of Teresa on the 'azan' issue.

Why is the person making the false and serious accusation not arrested while the victim is? Did the Police bother to investigate thoroughly before hauling her in? There are witnesses coming forward to say that Teresa has nothing to do with the issue.

The Police should release Teresa immediately and the mischief maker arrested. Isn't this the right thing to do?
