IF WE BELIVE IN THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION…!?

The Rakyat are matured enough. They are able to make up their minds which are good and which are bad. The rakyat do want leaders, especially political leaders to tell them what to do and what not. Gone are the days when leaders were the “gurus” and thr Rakyat their “students”. So for God’s sake show the The Tanda Putra. Show to the Rakyat the facts and figures which have been embeded in the film. Let the Rakyat see the film and then decide. Do not chicken out. And why the hesitation? It is about the Rakyat and Patriotism. Below is the passage, as posted by Blogger “Barking Magpie”. It might be of interest to surfers.

Barking Magpie 27 july 2012 People also need to be reminded of the nasty stuff!

As I write this the 2012 Olympic is London, England, is just about to begin.
US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has just committed a major faux pas when visiting England, when he said, to paraphrase, the UK has not got enough security people to ensure safety for everyone.
Romney also announced to the world he had a secret meeting with the head of the British MI6…phew! This moron is going to be the next US president? I hope not, mainly he cannot keep his mouth shut when needed, such as keeping a simple secret!
British PM David Cameron retorted at another function saying that his country is proud to have organised one of the world largest sporting events in one of the world’s busiest cities.
I was in Munich in 1972 when eight Palestinians from a terrorist group called Black September held 11 Israeli athletes hostage and in an attempted rescue, all the Israelis were killed.
Many have sought not to even report the 1972 Black September attack during or before the 2012 Olympics, but the thing is we simply cannot sweep everything under the carpet.
Back to us, I was told by my blogger friends who attended the premier of a movie “Tanda Putra” about the May 13th tragedy and came out impressed. The thing is now the film will not be released as scheduled due to possible sensitivity on the nature of the film.
I am of the opinion that a film of such nature must be shown to Malaysians so they will understand the severity of the consequences of being politically beligirrent and the dangers of promoting racism.

It is true that many of those born after 1969 may not know but it is incumbent upon us who still remember May 13th to tell the future generations of Malay, Chinese, Indians and others that May 13th was the result of a racially and politically divided people of Malaysia.
I implore Prime Minister Najib Razak to please allow the screening of the movie Tanda Putra even before the general elections, and if nothing else people will at least understand the severity of not being able to think rationally that led to bloodshed.

I now implore Datin Paduka Shuhaimi Baba to do some research on the brutality committed by the Chinese-led Bintang Tiga which went on a rampage killing thousands of Malays, including many of my relatives, immediately after the Japanese surrender in Malaya.
One thing is for sure though, no riot will happen after the showing of the movie Tanda Putra because I have faith in Malaysians of all races to see it and to understand it, and to prevent it from re-occuring!
