It is surprisingly to know that only now, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak admitted or rather realized that the government’s censorship of The Economist’s article on Bersih last month was ineffective.
To quote Najib Tun Razak, “only a few lines were censored, but the act of censoring made more news than the actual story”. Alamak! Now only he realizes the backlash of unnecessary censorship.
Najib Abdul Razak added if the government is unhappy with any reports, it could resort to legal proceedings. Isn’t it what the rakyat or the people of Malaysia have been saying this all these time?
Najib Razak said the the government needs to review its censorship methods, so that the government would not be perceived as ignorant towards the changing information technology landscape.
Do you think it is merely a PERCEPTION that Malaysian government is IGNORANT about the ever-changing information technology landscape?
Remember not too long ago, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) blocked 10 file-sharing sites?
Anyway, here is a Hitler-lookalike spoof at Malaysia or rather MCMC blocking file-sharing sites. Read the subtitles and have a jolly good laugh.
