Why is the twitter trigger-happy Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, keeping quiet about the death and rape threats to BFM journalist, Aisyah Tajuddin, for questioning of hudud?
Khalid could swing into twitter action against Pakatan Rakyat leaders and NGO activists within seconds, but why he is keeping his silence for over 24 hours over the death and rape threats to Aisyab Tajuddin?
Is the IGP suffering from selective attention in the way the police authorities suffer from the sin of selective investigation and harassment of PR leaders and NGO activists (the latest victim being the 11th #Kita Lawan rally arrest of PKR Vice President and MP for Batu, Chua Tian Chang) and the Attorney-General suffer from the disease of selective prosecutions?
Surely Khalid is not going to plead ignorance about the spate of death and rape threats against Aisyab which appeared on the social media in the last 36 hours, and he should explain what he has done about it in keeping with the IGP’s self-professed high standards of police professionalism and efficiency?
In view of Khalid’s “fame| for his twitter-quick monitoring of events concerning PR leaders and NGO activists, Malaysians wonder and have a right to know what the IGP has done with regard to the death and rape threats on the social media against Aisyab Tajuddin.
The spate of death and rape threats against Aisyab has led her father, Professor Dr. Mohamad Tajuddin Mohamad Rasdi, to ask the heart-rending question which the IGP must take keen interest – whether Malaysia is safe for our children to live in?
Tajuddin posed the following question:
“Is this country safe for our children to live in? If a simple point of view is raised against such issue as hudud or even such issue as democracy and clean elections can produce outburst of murder, rape and burning people alive, what does it say about our country, its citizens and our leadership? Where did this culture come from?”
As the country’s top cop responsible for the security of all Malaysians, Khalid will be the most appropriate person to answer Tajuddin’s question.
The other person who should answer Tajudin’s question is none other than the Prime Minister, but how many Malaysians expect Datuk Seri Najib Razak to break his policy of silence to assure Malaysians that the nation has not degenerated into a stage where the country is no more safe to bring up our children?
When Malaysia is no more safe to bring up our children, then it is no more safe for investors to invest their monies – and Malaysia will well be on the way to slide down the slippery slope to a “failed state”.
Khalid should also be cautioned that he should not arrogate to himself the powers of judge, jury and prosecutor all into one.
This is because when the IGP used his tweet to instruct the police to investigate a person, he is arrogating to himself the three roles of judge, jury and prosecutor, for the IGP could be completely misguided in his tweets like his reaction to DAP MP for PJ Utara Tony Pua whether the tweet “Royal my foot” referred to attacks on Malay Rulers when any preliminary police investigation could only conclude that Tony Pua was not aiming an attack or even criticism against the Malay Rulers in his tweet.
Malaysia needs an IGP whose top priority is to keep Malaysians safe from criminals and IS terrorists, and not to continue in his unprofessional war against Pakatan Rakyat leaders and NGO activists.
