Haris Ibrahim

Got the following sms at 2.21 am yesterday :

4/4, Candle Vigil, 6pm dihdpan Kem Kamunting,Taiping tuntut regim UMNO bebaskan Wira2 HINDRAF P. Uthayakumar masalah kesihatan & YB Manoharan. Dtg ramai2. Pakai baju oren & bawa kain oren. Sebarkan.

I was upset that the Makkal Sakti folk still did not see the need to take a more inclusive stance in calling for the release of all ISA detainees, and not just the HINDRAF detainees.

Why just their wira-wira HINDRAF?

What about Mat Satray?

What about the fact that he’s still in Kamunting because his wife, Norlaila,

refuses to ease up on her efforts, through Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA, to secure the release of ALL ISA detainees?

I decided to attend the vigil, not to participate in the same, but for the purpose only of voicing my unhappiness at the continued exclusivist approach taken by the Makkal Sakti folk, and to report on the event.

A team of us got to the detention centre a little after 6pm.

No-one there yet.

Did Najib say that the ISA will be reviewed?

Did this consciousness for the need for such a review only just descend upon him?

Or has he always harboured this view, but given that he was second in command of a repressive regime under the command of Pak Lah that he felt the need to conceal this enlightened side of him until such time as he rose to office high enough to carry through his move to give life to his vision?
