Dictatorship or Democracy?

It is reported that a University lecturer has been forced to resign because he  took a group of his students to visit the DAP headquarters office!  So it has come to this in “democratic” Malaysia: that all contact with opposition political parties is forbidden and that any breach of that “decree” will be severely sanctioned.

If such a ruling had been promulgated in Tsarist Russia it might have been accepted as normal. Or in Hitler’s Germany. Or any other fascist and dictatorial State, past or present. But in Malaysia? A democratic state; at least that is what the Constitution states.

What harm was caused to anyone? Demonstrate it if you can- Or accept that you are living in a dictatorship of crooks and that you have no rights at all! The next general election would be a good time to do that..
