Make the release of Malaysian Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim from prison a top priority for Singapore's policy toward Malaysia
A good muslim is one that tells the truth and seperate the lies created by extremist muslim. Anwar is a good muslim that wrote this in his blog regarding the Charlie Hedbo attack that took lives of 12 people. Here's his words:
""""""Freedom of expression and double standards
Nevertheless, much as we must defend our fundamental liberties, the fact is that there is no such thing as absolute freedom of expression, not even in Europe and certainly not in France. When the comic book on the life of the Prophet was first published in France two years ago, I had deplored it as sacrilege against Islam. Indeed, I had called for calm and rationality in response even as we should denounce the cartoons as vile and contemptible.
To my mind, the Danish cartoons, Charlie Hebdo caricatures and the rest of the tasteless and insensitive publications ridiculing Islam and the Prophet are mere manifestations of Islamophobia in all its varied guises. They appear to betray a deep-seated Freudian prejudice or animosity harking back to the Crusades.
A clear line must therefore be drawn between freedom of expression and hate crimes.
So, while I condemn the Paris killings, I cannot subscribe to the chant of “je suis Charlie” because I do not support the portrayal of the image of the Prophet, let alone caricaturing him in any way. Likewise, I do not support blasphemy against Christians, Jews or any other religion. Neither do I support the freedom to incite hatred against anyone or community on account of religion, ethnicity or culture.
The publication of the Charlie Hepdo cartoons was highly offensive to many Muslims. The French government did nothing to hold to account the people responsible for that act of profanity. Now, in the aftermath of the Paris massacre, just a few days later the magazine republished the offensive cartoons and this was officially sanctioned by the French authorities. """"""
Now he was jailed in Malaysia because of Sodomy charges. Never did sodomy had sufficient evidence to jail him but due to the lack of integrity in Malaysia police and political power of UMNO (BN) government, he was jailed after fighting the rights of good muslim faith and humanity in the name of the Malaysia people.
We, the voice of the people, petition the Singapore government:
Anwar Ibrahim, the Leader of the Opposition in Malaysia, a champion of democracy, a believer in Islamic justice, and a longtime friend of the United States, was convicted and jailed on trumped-up charges on February 10, 2015.
The White House soon issued a statement expressing its "deep disappointment" with Anwar’s conviction. It said that the decision to prosecute Anwar and the conduct of his trial raised serious concerns about the rule of law and the fairness of the judicial system in Malaysia.
But statements are not enough. The Administration must follow its words with action. Anwar is a political prisoner. The future of democracy in Malaysia is at stake. Securing Anwar's release from prison must be a top priority in US policy towards Malaysia, to be advanced in every way possible.
