Can the rakyat trust the police chief? - Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy

Billythekid: So what has the Minister of Law(twisted and twisting), all the erstwhile PH politicians who were previously championing the cause of this lady and her children, got to say ?
It is no use to get the warped politician known as the Prime Minister to comment as he can do so well in the Zakir Naik case, so there !
This article is among the most hard-hitting expose' of the 'long-ago'(Malaysian attitude) issue and blatantly seeking the answers and I expect soon the writer may be asked to report to the infamous PDRM !
Malaysiakini : “For the past nine years, people ask us
what are we, as in what religion are we? And my answer would be 'I'm a
Hindu', with confidence. After today, I can say with assurance that 'I
am a Hindu'." - Tevi Darsiny, eldest daughter of M Indira Gandhi.
| We now know that the inspector-general of police (IGP) has been lying
when he claimed before that the state security apparatus did not know the whereabouts of M Indira Gandhi’s kidnapped child.
now know that the IGP and the state security apparatus have been
colluding by their inaction to carry out a court order with a kidnapper.
We now know that the state security apparatus and the IGP are complicit
in a kidnapping by their willful disregard of a court order, their
enabling of the kidnapper and by the arrogance that they are above the
law. If you think what I wrote was provocative, keep in mind that Suhakam concluded that the state security apparatus was complicit in the kidnapping of Pastor Raymond Koh, and what did the 'old maverick' say of this conclusion? That it was merely hearsay. In any functional democracy, the IGP would be under investigation.
this country, the IGP can shrug off Indira's civil suit as “her right
to do so”, secure in the knowledge that her rights – our rights – will
not constrain his dereliction of duty or contempt of court.
anyone trust anything the IGP says now? When conniving political
operatives tell us to trust in the investigation, can anyone take them
seriously? You do understand what this means, right? Now when a Muslim
convert or a Muslim kidnapper kidnaps a child – in the name of religion –
what he or she has is precedent that the state security apparatus will
do everything in their power to see to it that the crime results in a
The rakyat will be fed lies and red herrings.
Conspiracy theories will supplant the administration of justice and the
kidnappers will remain free all in the name of religion. In all my
articles, I have made the argument that this is a case of religious
kidnapping. That religion was front and centre of a crime, which
demonstrated to non-Muslims that they were at a disadvantage.
Strip away all the legalese and this is what Indira's ex-husband has done. Muhammad Riduan Abdullah (above)
has kidnapped his child and has demonstrated that he does not give a
damn about the courts, the state security apparatus or the hypocritical
"new Malaysia" politicians. He has said that he believed the superiority
of his religion would protect him from the judgment of the courts.
The IGP’s “happy ending”
comment should have got him sacked. He is not the arbiter in the
administration of justice. It is not in his purview to determine a happy
ending or even to define it. I have no idea why the Attorney-General's
Office has not pushed for a contempt of court order against him or why
the relevant bodies are not investigating him for obstruction of justice
- the least of the issues involved – or more importantly, as an
accomplice to a kidnapping.
And if you believe that only the IGP was in the know, you are incredibly naive. I wrote about how a young anti-narcotics office told me
that he believes that the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) does not really
want to find the child because if they did, they would have.
my own credible contacts within the state security apparatus – still
serving officers – could confirm that they believed the PDRM knew where
the kidnapper was, then you can bet that there are political operatives –
even non-Malays ones – who knew that the PDRM knew the whereabouts of
the kidnapped child but were merely misleading the rakyat by their
Now we know why de facto law minister Liew Vui Keong said that the government cannot “interfere”
in the case -"This case, cannot really ask for the government to
interfere because this is a litigation matter taken up by the mother
against the ex-husband.” You can bet your last ringgit that when this
statement was made, there were political operatives in Pakatan Harapan
who knew that the PDRM knew the whereabouts of the kidnapped child.
Keep in mind that in the cases of Indira and S Deepa,
the state security apparatus assumed the role of antagonist and were an
impediment to justice. This is a matter of public record and something
most Harapan political operatives can attest to. Why? Because Harapan
political operatives before they were elected into public office were
championing these causes as if their political careers depended on it.
What changed, you ask?
Well, your guess is as good as mine. But
please do not ever make the mistake of thinking that the IGP’s admission
was something that was confined to the innermost circles of the state
security apparatus. Did the Perlis mufti know? Do followers of Zakir
Naik know? You think it is wrong to ask these questions?
that the rumour mill and conspiracy theories about this case revolved
around these personalities and now that we know that the IGP knew the
whereabouts of the kidnapped child and defied a court order to enable
the kidnapper, we know that he could have put a stop to these rumours.
we are always warned about spreading “fake news”. We are warned not to
believe in conspiracy theories. Meanwhile, on social media, religious
fanatics mock people who question the IGP and the state security
apparatus. They hate people like Indira and S Deepa because they expose
the way how the religion of the state intrudes into our lives.
what about the ever compassionate Islamic affairs minister Mujahid
Yusof Rawa? There are so many ways Riduan could evade the law and it
does not have to include the complicity of the state security apparatus
(although I suspect they are complicit). What people fail to understand
is that the religious bureaucracy is a system of its own, with
tributaries that riddle the country.
Can anyone seriously believe
that the religious bureaucracy and the state security apparatus were not
working together to keep the child safe in her new religion and are now
endeavouring for a “happy ending”?
Please keep in mind that it is
not only the complicity of the state in this religious crime. It would
not surprise me if there are enablers, who are average citizens,
conspiring to keep this child within the religion forced onto her. I do
not think these people consider Riduan as some sort of religious martyr
but rather they believe that Indira’s daughter belongs to them and their
faith. It pains me to say this but Indira's daughter probably has been
indoctrinated to believe the narrative of her captors instead of her
mother. For years I have been claiming that the state security
apparatus knew the whereabouts of Indira's kidnapped child. Now the IGP
has confirmed it.
We can expect more of these kinds of revelations in this "new Malaysia".
