Yes they fought among themselves in the Dewan but they will not allow the police to interfere in the Dewan.
In order a nation to be safe, the police and the military must be kept in barrack. Malaysia better watch it, the police is going overboard.

Yes, I saw the Kelatan cat fight before the elections. That UMNO thug did himself and his party no favours by behaving like Kelatan's No.1 Mat Rempit.

The Perak fiasco can be added to the already long list of events in the UMNO's hall of SHAME!!!

Perak was not a fair fight!
The police should not have been in there at all!!
The IGP and Hishammuddin should resign for this!!

Dear Azly Rahman,
A friend of mine shared your article on failed Malaysia. I like your comments. I would like to seel your comment on my opinion pertaining to religion Islam. Inm Malaysia it is compulsory for non muslim to convert if they wish to marry a muslim irrespective id you are a mail or female. How fair is this? Why there is no freedom of choice for the couple to make their own decsion or remain in their different religian (which is happening extensively all in many other countries? I also notice your comments on Malaysia is fair but youu did not touch on thi subject of forced conversion. If it si not for the conversion i would l have married a malay long ago/ your opinion please. Thank you

In the field of economics, there is a saying that what we don't see with the naked eye is more important than what we can see. For example, some vandal who breaks a glass window will cause the house owner to give money (say RM100) to the glass maker to make a new window, which triggers a chain of positive economic effects throughout the economy. But the opportunity cost is invisible: what the house owner would have done with the RM100, which he saved for his consumption or investment.

Same truth applies to politics and the recent Perak crisis, what we saw was the Perak Assembly Speaker Mr Sivakumar being forcibly removed by several men at the State Assembly on 7th May. And economics student/writer John Lee has rightly pointed out, what is unseen is the tremendous damage to democracy and respect for the rule of law, the separation of powers enshrined in the constitution.

I think the invisible damage is worse: the use of physical violence on a law-abiding citizen should be condemned by government leaders. If not, then it may be interpreted by the young and politically illiterate as an implicit official sanction of violence for the sake of asserting one person's power over another.

Will criminal violence escalate after this shameful incident? I beseech the authorities to be wise and responsible and express remorse over the violent removal of the speaker instead of trying to justify it.

Yes, all rather unseemly. Unlike the Marxists' beloved, bloodless Russian Revolution or Mao's sparing of so many tens of millions of Communism's opponents.
