It was reported that a MCA Youth leader from Perak, Ting Tai Fook had called upon the authorities to detain UMNO Youth deputy chief and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's son-in-law, Khairy Jamaluddin under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for making racist remarks and to question the government's stand in offering government scholarship to non-bumiputras. He made a same call against suspended UMNO Penang leader Datuk Ahmad Ismail who courted controversy recently by describing the Chinese community in Malaysia as mere squatters.
With the recent detention of persons under the ISA by the government who as claimed by them as a threat to national security, to detain these two persons would show the rakyat that no one is spared if they were to provoke racial disharmony.
Will the authorities detain Khairy Jamaluddin and Datuk Ahmad Ismail immediately or just treat UMNOputras as above the law - can say and do anything but nothing happens.
