Anyone who sees this Facebook profile would know that this is nothing more than a prank. Someone who is really serious in assassinating the Prime Minister would not have announced his or her intentions publicly, much less have a Facebook profile declaring such an aim in their status. However the Malaysian police, being the dumb-asses and utter morons that they already are, saw it fit to regard this prank as a “threat” and arrested this student over this particular remark.
I have always shown a keen interest in Malaysian politics ever since I was ten. As far as I am concerned, someone who is not interested in or has apathy towards the Malaysian political situation is simply being unpatriotic to the highest degree, which is unthinkable to me. Patriotism towards the country, however, is not to be confused with asabiyyah, or tribal inclinations which the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and Islam has abolished.
With all these known excesses and problems in Malaysia, why am I still here? Why have I remained in Malaysia? I could have just as easily moved to the United States , where I would be welcomed as a citizen and, unlike others who choose to leave, have the right to vote and participate in the political process.
