Candlelight Vigil - What Is So Wrong?

There are many ways people express their disatisfaction. Some do it physically and some verbally. Whichever way it is the right of the individual or group to voice out their dissatisfaction because it is much safer than doing it quietly. Doing so can be equated as 'api dalam sekam'. 

Lately many assemblies were held to send message to the authority in a peaceful method using candlelight vigil. However candlelight vigil (which is legal) has been labelled as illegal. Most Malaysians wonder why cannot hold candlelight vigil? Is it because the activity add salt to the wound? So now Malaysians who has the right to peaceful assembly as stipulated in the constitution cannot practice it anymore because of people first. Unless if it is organised by the going to be extinct UM.......oh NO!!!!!. This is 1Malaysia- only one people make the decision for the people first. 

Malaysiakini today reported that 16 was arrested at Teratai for holding a candlelight vigil. The same kind of activities held is Seri Kembangan has the presence of FRUs. 

8 May 2009 - Peaceful candlelight vigil ended with arrest. 

What is wrong with candlelight vigil anyway? I am confused.

Cikgu, the police is doing its national duty of helping TNB. In view of TNB's recent mega losses, TNB is afraid that Malaysian will pick up this trend and use less electricity thus further aggravating TNB's losses. Police being the ever efficient kaki meng'ular' took upon themselves to remedy the situation. Heck, it's better than risking their life chasing after hardened criminal notwithstanding that is what they are paid for. Remember the closing of a police beat base in Jln TAR? It's too dangerous to station police officer in high crime area...Such brilliant idea and nobler the intention...Only in malaysia!
