Mat Sabu Mocks Airing Of Patriotic Song Praising Security Forces

PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu has taken a dig at the patriotic song aired often in praise of the security forces in recognition of their defence of the nation against the recent intrusion by Sulu terrorists in Sabah.

"The repeated airing of the patriotic song is an entertainment for the police and military," he said at a 'ceramah' (talk) in Kampung Tedong,Jasin here Sunday.

Mohamad, who is better known as Mat Sabu, also questioned the move of the Sabah Immigration Department to refuse entry into Sabah of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice-president Tian Chua.

Tian Chua was denied entry into Sabah after he flew in to the Kota Kinabalu International Airport on April 7, and the state government said it was for his own security and safety.

The PKR leader had been charged with sedition after he allegedly said that the Sulu terrorist intrusion in Lahad Datu was "a conspiracy of the Umno government".

Mat Sabu was involved in a controversy some time ago when he praised as a hero and freedom fighter Ahmad Indera or Mat Indera who had joined the communist terrorists in an attack on the Bukit Kepong police station in Muar, Johor, in the 50s.

At the ceramah, PAS announced that businessman Richard Wong, a member of the PAS Supporters Club, would contest the Asahan state seat in Melaka in the 13th General Election, polling for which is on May 5.
