Singaporean police hunts down Mas Selamat, Malaysian Police hunts down Nasi Lemak (which is an other word for coconut rice if you are from overseas…). Let’s compare Singaporean and Malaysian jails…

Mas Selamat: fear in Singapore

Mas Selamat bin Kastari is famous for his plan to bomb Singapore Changi Airport in 2002 (by crashing a plane through the airport… so you can imagine where he gets his ideas…).

Mas Selamat escaped from the Whitley Road Detention Centre 2 days ago (Wednesday 27 February), where he was being held following his deportation from Indonesia to Singapore in February 2006.

Knowing Mas Selamat’s track record, he must be somewhere in Singapore or on his way to Indonesia or… what about neighbour Malaysia?

Malaysia’s democracy: fear in Malaysia

If you happen to make a demonstration these days on the streets in Malaysia, you will get the police splashing you with teargas, even if you are accompanied with your children…

Next week is elections in Malaysia: only the ruling party can make advertisement in the papers, radio and TV… what kind of democracy is that?

One of the slogans is: Vote for peace and security, vote the ruling party…

Is this a jail?

malaysian prison

See the bars at the window? Looks like a jail, right?

But when had jail such nice chairs and curtains?

Well, it’s a picture of a Malaysian house. Maybe the insides are different, but the windows and doors have bars, just like a jail.


Because we feel scared!

If we had a government that had a police force that would keep an eye on security, would we barricade our houses like this?

Of course not!

I would love to vote for peace and security,
but that’s not what I have got from the ruling party 🙁

I feel reasonably secure in my house,
I don’t feel secure at all in Malaysia…

In Malaysia: your house is your jail 🙁
