umno leadersAliran is happy that Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin has finally come down to earth and to his senses. It is good of him to realise his unspoken mistake and to “apologise to the non-Malays if they felt afraid of the symbol”. It was not only the raising of the keris as a symbol of strength and Malay supremacy that upset many Malaysians but the seditious, threatening, provocative utterances of some Umno delegates that aroused the anger of all thinking Malaysians.

Aliran is perturbed that police have begun investigations into a Malaysiakini report which allegedly slandered the police. The news portal’s breaking news-report had initially stated – incorrectly as it turned out – that police personnel could have been involved in the incident in which a man sprayed chemical irritant at former premier Tun Dr Mahathir and former Umno strongman Datuk Ibrahim Ali.
