This poignant letter in malaysiakini Zaid Ibrahim writes open letter to PM should be read by everyone for it shows the rare UMNO member who is willing to stand up and be counted for freedom and justice.
Of course he is no angel like all of us but his letter should be the primer for a great debate in Parliament on how Malaysia can show we practise a working democracy.
The MPs should take up this urgent issue instead of waiting for brave Malaysians to continue with their candle-lit vigils and peaceful marches.
Just as the Released tankers God’s Hari Raya gift, says PM, he too can show his compassionate side by releasing all ISA detainees for Raya except those for which evidence is available to be charged in court within the next 2 weeks.
It does not cost millions of ringgit like the MISC ships but the goodwill he will generate among all Malaysians will be priceless.
Let us all pray that God will give him the courage to do this.
