The ugly propagandisation of Adib's death - Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy
Saturday, December 29, 2018
Abasir : Parts of what I had commented elsewhere may be worth repeating here. I did not know the late Adib or how he would have taken his unintended "martyrdom". But let me tell you how I feel about this shameless utilisation of a dead man by unscrupulous, self-serving muslims. Hundreds (or is it thousands) of innocents were mercilessly killed by marauding mobs 50 years ago between May 13-16 1969 and they remain unknown and unmourned except by close family and friends.
While the exact number of those butchered has been buried by those who actually enabled the rampage and profited politically by it, none of those cruel deaths then evoked the same (or any) kind of high profile, televised and mass-communicated mourning we witness for Adib today. Instead what followed then were sponsored "durian parties" organised to kill off the stench of the blood and gore in and around KL. As for today's serialised grieving which has become de rigueur for politicians and their well-heeled benefactors to demonstrate, could it be they, as well as those inclined to follow rabble rousers into the streets, have all developed a deep sense of moral outrage and have become that much more empathetic and moved to a steady stream of tears by man's inhumanity to man? Or is the truth slightly less dramatic and more plausible? Would I be wrong to declare that the ethnicity of the fallen Adib and his alleged tormentors have as much to do with this spasmodic lamentation as the absence of any such weeping following the death of Teoh Beng Hock when in the custody of his Malay captors? Or the six Indians killed by Malay hordes in Kg. Medan in 2001? Or should we assume that in Bersatu's "New Malaysia" such ostentatious expressions of photographed grief will now be the new norm regardless of who is killed by whoever? Seriously, the country is sicker than it has ever been and this charade is the best indicator of the inglorious end that's in store.
Falcon : Perhaps Commander sir, we should also ask these self appointed political race based bourgeoisie fascist narrators what about those missing pastors? Is that question not important as well in their self serving self righteous world?
Malaysiakini : “This inquest is a good thing and it can bring justice for Adib, in fact, that is what we want, justice for Adib.”
- Mohd Kassim Abdul Hamid (Adib's father)
| While the father of Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim approves of the inquest
into his son’s death, numerous parties have chosen this opportunity to
propagandise Adib's death in furtherance of racial and religious
agendas. Acting Umno president Mohamad Hasan, for instance, criticised
the move for this inquest claiming rather bizarrely that an
investigation into the cause of death was not the same as figuring out
who killed Adib.
