KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak must prove his mettle as the "leader of 1Malaysia" by speaking out against Utusan Malaysia over its Christian plot report.
In making the call, Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM) president Haris Ibrahim also wondered why the authorities were slow in acting against the Umno-owned newspaper.
"Why has there been no action against Utusan under the Sedition Act? "Is the Umno-led BN government complicit in this attempt to sow racial and religious discord or else powerless to act against an emerging group of fascists?" he asked in a statement.

It is even more mind-boggling to hear that certain quarters feel the need to probe into what transpired at a private meeting.
Are they under the impression that the Christians are training suicide bombers or planning nationwide carnage?
I think the irony is lost on the BN government.
