Racist Got Away with Holiday, Reporter Got Caught under ISA

Sin Chew Daily journalist Tan Hoon Cheng, who reported Ahmad Ismail's "Chinese are Squatters" speech, has been arrested today under the Internal Security Act at 8.30pm at her home in Bukit Mertajam. She is ISA Arrest No.2, after the arrest of Raja Petra (also a Subang Jayan) around 1pm this afternoon.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE REPORTER?
Miss Tan was merely reporting what she witnessed and heard during the by-election campaign. Ahmad DID SAY what he SAID. No "hidden meaning", no other "background history", no "added salt". She was just REPORTING THE TRUTH!

CAUGHT WRONG PERSON - SHOULD BE AHMAD ISMAIL!
Dear Government, what did Tan do wrong? Why is she being detained under ISA for telling the truth to the public? The REAL wrong-doer Ahmad Ismail got away with just 3 years suspension of "club membership" after all his RACIST + PROVOCATIVE + NATIONAL-PEACE-THREATENING statements and actions. Why such obvious Double Standard? He is the ONE should be detained under ISA (if ISA is to be used)!

GOVERNMENT'S HIDDEN AGENDA?!
The UMNO-controlled Government is frightening the Reporters so that nobody will report anything WRONG done / said by UMNOputra. This is a pre-emptive measure since there will lots of such statements coming out in the coming UMNO General Meeting. There are many more "Ahmad Ismail" in UMNO will be singing the same song to earn their political support from the UMNOputra for personal gain!

ALL PRESS MUST STAND TOGETHER NOW!
You all must support your fellow worker Tan Hoon Cheng! If you give in again (like most mainstream media do for ages), Malaysian journalists will no longer earn any respect from the Rakyat. Furthermore, you are doing the right thing to report the TRUTH and not fear of the threat. Otherwise, Rakyat will not KNOW what is actually happening!

WE MUST SUPPORT SIN CHEW & TAN HOON CHENG!
All Malaysians must support Sin Chew Daily and Tan Hoon Cheng for their courage to report the TRUTH to the Rakyat. We cannot let such TRUTHFUL & NEUTRAL Press goes down again (like happened in 80's). Otherwise, we will continue as we were before March-8th : we only know what Government (Barisan Nasional) wants us to know, unless you are internet-savvy (which 75% Malaysian population are not).

SUPPORT SIN CHEW IN ACTION
We urge all Subang Jayans & all Malaysians to support Sin Chew with any constructive method you can. If you are not sure what to do, you can at least do the following:

Starting from today, buy Sin Chew Daily everyday even if you can't read Chinese!

This is the easiest way to demonstrate support from Rakyat to a truthful and just Press. You can at least do this until Tan is released. Otherwise, just STOP buying those BN papers (if you have not stop yet). STOP even buying other papers if they do not speak up for Miss Tan.

FREE THE JOURNALIST!
FREE RAJA PETRA!
SAY NO TO ISA!

Latest Update : Tan Hoon Cheng has been released Sep 13 afternoon. She is now safely in her house in Bukit Mertajam. (MalaysiaKini 04:19pm 13-Sep)

You may want to consider joining the “Please ISA Me” wave (psygame playing lah) so that they will think twice before handcuffing you.
