Negara Kita Tanggungjawab Kita – From Conviction to Action

An Appeal to the Police to Do The Right Thing

Let us all be reminded of the Rukun Negara, the de facto Malaysian pledge of allegiance.

Let us all be reminded of the Rukun Negara, the de facto Malaysian pledge of allegiance.

You have always asked for the rakyat’s cooperation to be civic-minded. You said that the state of our community is the responsibility of its members. You applaud ordinary citizens who risk their lives nabbing snatch thieves and robbers, etc on the spot in your place.

Which side of the “law” are you on now? And whose “law” are you following? What if it were your parent, brother or sister under detention without trial? What would you do? Keep silent?

Every one of us has a role towards improving the state of our economic, social and political lives. Please support initiatives of groups that contribute to sustainable development and harmonious community development nationwide.

Let us all be reminded of the Rukun Negara, the de facto Malaysian pledge of allegiance.

(Belief in God)
(Loyalty to King and Country)
(The Supremacy of the Constitution)
(The Rule of Law)
(Courtesy and Morality)

We appeal to the Polis DiRaja Malaysia to be there at the Anti-ISA Vigils for the right reasons, i.e to provide security for the participants and to take this as an opportunity to get to know and bond with the rakyat at peaceful vigils. Alternatively, go catch the real crooks and mindless Mat Rempits out there.

Stand up and be counted in your own special way for the sake of all Malaysians and your children too. If we don’t care about the state of our country, it simply means we don’t care about ourselves.

See you this Sunday, 8.00pm at MBPJ!

    The Red Book – Police and Your Basic Rights

    In 2006, The Malaysian Bar Council took the initiative to launch a publication titled “The Red Book – Police and Your Basic Rights”.

    The Red Book contains a lot of information that you will find useful if you have to deal with the police (plain clothes or uniformed).

    For example, the book contains information on your rights and what you can do and cannot do if/when you are stopped, arrested or questioned by the police.

    Other useful information in the book include the colour schemes of police authority cards (blue is inspector or above, yellow below, white reserve and red suspended) and the phone numbers of Legal Aid Centres (LAC) that you can call if you need a lawyer.

    CLICK HERE to download an English or BM version of The Red Book from the Malaysian Bar Council website:

    You can read more about The Red Book launch here:
