Three days ago, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had, at a Ramadhan event in Johor, made the remarks that a repeat of the 1969 race riots could not be ruled out.

What was most shocking and irresponsible was that he had obviously put the blame on the non Malay communities when he expressed expressed fears over the insults hurled towards the Malays and Muslims of late.

I am disappointed and baffled why MCA President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai , when commenting that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s statement was a “reminder” to Malaysians not to take the country’s peace for granted, had said that everyone was working towards a better Malaysia but extremists were taking every opportunity to destablise the country.

Today I had been showing the “special pass” issued to me by Sarawak Immigration office, to comrades and local journalists. The pass specifies that I can only stay in Sarawak for 7 days.

When I met Sdr Lim Guan Eng who had arrived in Sibu to pay respects to Ho Leng in the evening, I wanted to show him my “special pass”, but I then realized that it was missing.

Saya gembira dapat memberi penghormatan terakhir kepada rakan seperjuangan saya, Sdr Wong Ho Leng di Sibu. Bila saya lihatnya di dalam keranda peti sejuk di rumahnya, saya rasa sangat sedih. Saya sedih melihat wajahnya telah berubah kerana penyakitnya. Saya boleh bayangkan betapa susahnya beliau melawan penyakit kanser dalam satu tahun lebih yang lepas. Takziah kepada isterinya Irene Chang dan anak-anaknya.

Pagi ini saya berjaya masuk ke Sibu, Sarawak.

Bila saya keluar dari kapal terbang dan sampai ke kaunter imigresen di lapangan terbang Sibu, saya diminta oleh pegawai imigresen masuk ke pejabat mereka. Lepas tunggu 10 minit, saya diberi satu “Special Pass” yang menyatakan saya dibenarkan berada di Sarawak selama 7 hari untuk menghadiri majlis pengebumian (atas perintah kerajaan negeri).

Ayuh……..7 hari sahaja??? Apa salah saya buat di Sarawak sehingga saya hanya dibenarkan berada di Sarawak selama 7 hari?? Sedihnya ……

FreeMalaysiaToday – 20 June 2014 b-speak-up-on-conversion-issue/

PETALING JAYA: Seputeh MP Teresa Kok urged Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to make a stand on the recent controversy in unilateral conversion of minors by either one of their parents.

“Silence is not an option for the PM. He has chosen to remain silent on many past occasions when his response on important issues was required.

“Unilateral conversion of minors is unfair and unjust and causes problems, cruelty and trauma. It also contravenes provision in the Federal Constitution,” said Teresa in a press release today.

Media Statement by Teresa Kok, DAP National Vice Chairperson and MP for Seputeh in Kuala Lumpur on Friday, June 20, 2014

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Jamil Khir Baharom ‘s parliamentary reply on June 17 that that consent from either one parent is enough for conversion of minors, under Article 12 (4) of the federal constitution has met with heavy criticisms and been pointed out as erroneous.

Jamil ‘s argument was based on the decision in the Federal Court in the case of S Shamala, “the consent of just one parent was sufficient to convert the religion of the child because the words used in Article 12(4) (of the Federal Constitution) is parent or guardian, instead of parents or guardians, mean either the father or the mother or a guardian” , but the Bar Council has yesterday pointed out that the Federal Court in the case of Shamala Sathiyaseelan v Dr Jeyaganesh C Mogarajah & Anor did not make any such decision.

KUALA LUMPUR, June 19 — The Sultan of Selangor has instructed the state’s religious authorities to use the courts to settle the imbroglio stemming from its refusal to return over 300 copies of the bible seized from a Christian society in the state.

According to the Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah’s private secretary, Mohamad Munir Bani, the legal avenue would allow the matter to be resolved amicably and without perception of bias.

“The legal procedures pertaining to the disposal of items seized in raids and investigations may be referred to the courts by the public prosecutors to obtain an order either for their return or disposal,” according to a statement from the Sultan as issued by Mohamad Munir.
