The controversial alternative news portal headed by Raja Petra Kamarudin, Malaysia Today, was blocked by all 21 Internet Service Providers (ISP) in Malaysia. Apparently it was by the order of Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), who claimed that postings in MT contain seditious and inflammatory statements.
So, the government is getting desperate after losing big time at Permatang Pauh. They are breaking their own promise of no Internet censorship, which they made when they set up the Malaysian cyber laws (MSC Bill of Guarantee).
But….yeh, yeh, kita sudah menang! Umno and Barisan Nasional dah kalah! Malaysia Today may be ‘dead’. But the son of Malaysia Today is not dead. It is alive. It is not only alive but it is also raging mad. And the son of Malaysia Today is going to continue the fight just as Malaysia Today continued the fight on 13 August 2004, which was started by the Reformasi movement in September 1998.
Raja Petra Kamarudin no longer owns Malaysia Today. Raja Petra may have started the original Malaysia Today. But he does not own it any more. Malaysia Today has been replaced by the son of Malaysia Today. And the son of Malaysia Today is owned by the people of Malaysia. The people of Malaysia are keeping the son of Malaysia Today going. It is now called MT Harapan Malaysia and you can access it at www.mt.harapanmalaysia.com.
Spread this message far and wide. Tell all your friends and family that Malaysia Today
has died. It died at 6.00pm on 26 August 2008, the time and day that
Anwar Ibrahim won the Permatang Pauh by-election with historic results
and which has now triggered his march to Putrajaya. But also tell your
friends and family that the son of Malaysia Today has taken over the fight of its father. And this son is called mt.harapanmalaysia.com.
Also tell them that the fight is going to get fiercer. The son wants to
avenge the death of its father. And don’t forget to also gloat to your
friends and family: yeh, yeh, kita menang!
