Internal security measures exists everywhere

I.S.A. What is I.S.A.? Ikut suka akulah. This is my blog. I can damn well rant and rave about whatever I want. I am one of the bloggers that supports I.S.A. whole heartedly. Those who are against the I.S.A. can go back to the communist sewer from which you crawed out from. I will bash out at all ultra kiasu Chinese as much as I want to. You are not the only one who have something to say. I have loads of things to get out of my chest.

I.S.A. is the Internal Security Act. Every country in this world have their own version of the I.S.A. to maintain the peace inside the country. It may be called I.S.A. or others such as the Anti Terrorist Act (ATA) in the United States of America produced not surprisingly just after 9/11. It is also known as the USA Patriot Act. The contrived acronym stands for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001. So what is the fuss about abolishing this Act when it is nothing more than a preventive detention law that is enforced in Malaysia?

Why are some people up to no good so afraid of I.S.A. that there are even some quarters like GMI and Suaram that are so against it? GMI stands for Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA. GMI is in the same website as Suaram. Suaram stands for Suara Rakyat Malaysia. Well, you are not making a stand for the whole of Malaysia. There are still many out there that are for I.S.A. GMI and Suaram are nothing more than the tools created and used by the opposition parties to demand the abolishment of I.S.A. I am sure that if ever (God forbids) the ultra kiasu DAP ruled Malaysia, they will impose a harsher law than the I.S.A. Communists will be communists. No doubt about that.

The I.S.A. in Malaysia is called The Internal Security Act 1960 or in Malay as "Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri". It is a preventive detention law in force in Malaysia. The legislation was enacted after Malaysia gained independence from Britain in 1957. The ISA allows for detention without trial or criminal charges under limited, legally defined circumstances.

China have their own security measures set up for their leaders. The Central Security Bureau (also called Unit 8341, and less commonly, Unit 57001) or The Central Guard Unit (sometimes as the Centralis Guard Regiment) is the chief Security Detail military bureau responsible for the security of senior Chinese government, party, and military leaders. Along with the personal safety of senior Chinese government, party, and military leaders, the bureau is also responsible for protecting the office and living quarters of the leaders.

In India, there are the Terrorism and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act 1987 and the Prevention of Terrorism Act. These were replaced by Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act (2002-04). The Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act, commonly known as TADA, was an Indian law active between 1985 and 1995 (modified in 1987) for the prevention of terrorist activities in Punjab.

The United Kingdom, they have the The Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 (c.2). As of March 2009[update] the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 is still active, following renewal on 11 March 2009. The purpose of this Act is to provide for the making of 'control orders' imposing obligations on individuals suspected of being involved in terrorism-related activity. These are preventative orders which are designed to restrict or prevent the further involvement by individuals in such activity. More explanation about the Act can be read here.

In our neighbouring country Thailand, due to the chaos caused by the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD), known as the Red Shirts Protestors who are anti government, in March 2010 Thailand had invoked a new Internal Security Act on Tuesday, 9th of March giving security forces broad powers to impose curfews, set up checkpoints and restrict the movement of demonstrators. The ISA allows the country's top security agency - the Internal Security Operations Command - to impose curfews, operate checkpoints and restrict the movement of demonstrators if protests by the UDD turn violent.

Singapore's Internal Security Act confers on the government the right to arrest and detain individuals without trial in certain defined circumstances. The most notable ISA case was the Operation Coldstore in 1963 which led to the arrest of some 100 left-wing politicians and trade unionists, including members of the opposition party Barisan Sosialis who were opposing Singapore's merger with Malaysia. Read about Singapore's countermeasures to terrorism here.

In conclusion, there is no need to abolish the I.S.A. as demanded by the opposition and the NGOs supporting them since they are asking that to only satisfy their own selfish needs so that they can create chaos in our country at their whims and fancies.



  2. Hanya mereka yang merancang untuk memporakperandakan negara sahaja yang mendesak ISA dimansuhkan. Dan diikuti orang-orang bodoh yang punyai akal di lutut. Hari ini mereka rasa selamat tetapi bila terjadinya sesuatu rusuhan akibat sekor perusuh baru mereka faham erti kepentingan ISA.


Say whatever that is on your mind. Heck! This is a free country after all. If the racists Chinese can swear at the Malays as much as they want, we can do that as well.

However, I will not be held responsible to whatever that you have to say. The comment is solely the private opinion of the author.
