Is Raja Bahrin asking a rhetorical question?
Raja Sara Petra
The Kuala Terengganu Member of Parliament, Raja Datuk Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad, asked if the government will use the proposed fake news law to silence critics of 1MDB. Why is it the Pakatan Harapan people are so fixated and obsessed with 1MDB and feel that everything the government does is motivated by 1MDB? Pakatan seems to breath, eat and sleep 1MDB.
The problem is, whenever the government explains 1MDB the opposition refuses to accept that explanation and insist it is a lie. But if the government does not say anything the opposition says the government is trying to hide the truth. And now they say the fake news law is meant to silence all discussion on 1MDB. After three years what more is there to discuss since you don’t believe the truth anyway?
Anyway, this is the same thing the opposition used to say about the Internal Security Act (ISA) when Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was the Prime Minister for 22 years. They alleged that the ISA was meant to silence those who criticised Mahathir or who exposed his wrongdoings. Now that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak has abolished the ISA they still complain. Apa lagi Pakatan mahu? Cakap sampai buih mulut pun tak guna macam ni.
