The ISA and Recalcitrant Leaders......

I think most Malaysians are not against the ISA so long as it does not affect them.
But under the ISA, if you do something that displeases the Home Minister like organise a peaceful march, you can get put away for 2 years and no one can question the detention order in court.

It seems rather draconion that we have given such authority to a mere mortal - no court hearing, no testing of evidence and no judge to decide the merits of the case.
I hope the new government we will be getting within 5 years will put this matter right.

Public security is one thing but settling private peeves is another.
