Former Prime Minister Tun Dr. does not agree with the Communication and Multimedia Commission's move to block access to the Malaysia Today website. He said the Government broke its promise and had openly shown it could meddle with the security of the Internet.
He said in his website, chedet.com, that such an action exposed "a degree of oppressive arrogance worthy of a totalitarian state", and that the Government would soon lose credibility and respect among the people. Dr. Mahathir said that he did not often agree with Malaysia Today and its editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin, whom he said had been sometimes quite irresponsible. However, he said court action had been taken against Raja Petra, who was not above the law.
He warned the Government that although it had the power now, it may one day lose it and this would happen because of the Government's obsession to censor alternative views. "It will blind you to the reality of the situation so that you will continue to do wrong things and the people will reject you totally," he wrote. - THe STaR ONLiNe
