The Association of Religious Scholars (PUM)

should acknowledge that at least 

Malaysiakini and Manjit Bhatia wrote one truth about Myanmar

It didn’t even dare condemn the Burmese military thugs who rule Burma, whose justice is meted out in the Stalinist/Maoist standard of the end of gun’s barrel.

Just look at how much braver Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines are when compare to M’sia at UNGA voting on 24-12-2008.
