Bersih ka!?

Baru-baru ni kita dikejutkan dengan insiden di luar kawalan Bersih 3.0 di Dataran Merdeka. The ‘event’ was said to be a ‘sit and protest’ thingy but got out of hand.. for the 1st time of my life, I am going to try and give a fair and just comment on the incident based on what I have read and understand from friends that were apart of the celebration (erk)..

Its been havoc since they start this thing.. there was Anwar 901 (ye kot) for Anwar to be released.. Before that it was Reformasi... Then Bersih 1.0 - 2.0 and now 3.0.. is it me or most of these street parties are about Anwar Ibrahim. I have to say this that our politics have never been this excited before (not dirty! ~ No! not at all!) since he (DSAI) was arrested for being the 'behind' man.. Then tapes of Chua Soi Lek, who's the lady DUN, then Shafie and now its Azmin.. Macam2 la! Dah mcm 'i did not have sexual relationship with that woman' once again!

But to think of it, please follow my mind..
Would a mother go against her son in public even if that son was VERY VERY VERY rude or lost?
Would Hassan Ali someone who we all know (BN or PKR) that uphold and fight for Islamic truth and truce be bought off by any party?
I mean these 2 are the best examples that i can give that noone can manipulate.. right right right!??

1. Bersih 3.0 was a no go at Dataran Merdeka – if I could recall correctly the application to hold this thing at Dataran was rejected by PDRM and even DBKL for safety reason. And as a result, the protestors had gathered outside of Dataran (which was surrounded or protected whatever by the PDRM) with the intention to go ahead and walk in to Dataran and have their ‘sit and protest’ thing.. So that is why, things got out of hand and few hundred people were injured in the process

Protestors were not even supposed to be there in the 1st place! Then why blame the cop or BN or UMNO for the injuries that your members gained? Police gave their best to give you space to move and show your emotions, some groups were even left alone by the police! But why do police have to result in assault or brutality (I won’t call it that!)..

2. It was held all over Malaysia – this came out of my knowledge. Obviously I did not read the whole thing about Bersih and it didn’t even cross my mind that it would be this big! On the same day you can find Bersih in Penang, Melaka, Johor and even Australia (yes! I left out a few – for god’s sake this is not the news where I have to mention every single detail!). With this volume of supporters I can say that as a BN supporter I am very worried of our standing in Malaysian’s eye. It is definitely hard to know and be assuring of what people nowadays are thinking!

3. Things got violent – as you all might have read (somewhere/everywhere), things got out of hand on that day. Police cars were overturned, patrol bikes were stripped down, protestors were sprayed and brought down by the police and there was even a report of a fatality.
But not only protestors were brutally (huh?) disarmed or assaulted, there were cases of police cars being overturned, police bike being stopped and knocked down. Some said DSAI gave the ‘OK’ to go into Dataran Merdeka. Another group said that it was a misunderstanding or miscommunication between organizers and protestors. And some even claimed that it was policeman disguising themselves as protestors and broke into the barricade and urge or call (duh! who can call in this situation) others to join in the ‘fun’.

4. Bersih 3.0 was not a success – I would say Bersih 2.0 is more effective and success if you compare it with this one. For one, demands 2.0 which were 98% fulfilled and still they list it out again in 3.0. why would you prefer to have this 2.0 or 3.0 in the 1st place!?

Yes, I understand that 3.0 is all about fair election and your demands are all about the upcoming election. Ambiga even stated in her debate with KJ that she refuse to even speak to SPR even if she had the chance. All she wants is for the Chairman to resign!? Erk.. one person does not change everything overnight!?

Can I give you a simple yet effective solution. I am NOT calling out to Malaysian but this is merely a solution. Why not all of you BERSIHANS out there don’t go out to vote during the election?! What do you think?

Now, see it from a general Malaysian point of view (in event you win Malaysia):

- You refuse to listen but you want to be listened

- You want change but you do not apply it

- ALL politic parties are NOT clean! Politics itself is dirty to start with!

- You ramp about decreasing the petrol price but can you confirm it will maintained forever?!

- You want PTPTN out but can you be sure that our beloved country won’t be sold out to IMF etc?

- Can you confirm freedom of speech and press?

- Confirm and maintained Malaysia’s status as an Islamic Country

- If BN supporters rally would you allow them and not use something similar to ISA to help you?

While you’re at it, add these to you list of demands!

- Scrap the income tax, let govt subsidized everything!

- Make medical free for all

- Make EPF a contribution by the govt and not salary deductable

I am open for comments or inputs (if any)
