malaysiakini has this report entitled "Gov't rejects US criticism of detentions" in which the DPM has criticised the USA for holding terrorists without trial and daring to criticse the arrests of HINDRAF leaders under the ISA laws.
But why do we need to make such comparisons? Our actions should be based on conscionable thinking and we do not need to make references to any other state.
Otherwise it seems the authorities will deem it proper to justify any action by making a reference to the worst possible state.
After all the USA is officially a Godless nation whereas we are a self-proclaimed Civilisational Islamic nation.
