At 6.40pm, I received a call from one of Abang's closest comrades to tell that "line dah clear... buleh balik tidoq puas-puas... depa dah stop the crackdown. Nanti kalau zunar call, tolong kasi tau dia, ok?".
I wouldn't be too sure 100%. Silap-silap, it'd prolly be just a set-up, supaya semua keluar dari hiding places and mudah depa serkop terus.
10minutes later, macam tahu-tahu, Abang called and I told him what his friend told me. Also about Ms.Tan of Sin Chew Daily being released at 4pm tadi.
"Teresa and RPK macam mana?"
They still don't know where they both are. Malam ni ada candle-light vigil, I said.
"See...?? Yang opposition dorang tak lepaskan. Dorang hanya release the Sin Chew reporter 'coz mesti kena ugut from the Chinese sectors in the BN. The gomen has the racist Ahmad scot-free roaming the earth and only suspended for 3 years, yet they want to put an honest journalist in ISA??? What is that???"
Itu la, I said. Patutnya they detain Khir Toyo instead of Teresa. He was the one who started the slander. Some more, the so-called masjid yang kononnya Teresa submitted her petition on the azan issue tu kata, Teresa was never involved. Apa ni kan Bang??? And now the US also dah summoned our envoy in Washington for explanation and pressure the gomen, padan muka dorang! I said, talking fast and furious as if the line could be cut off any moment.
"Hmm. We'll just lay low for a while sehari dua ni. Will call back. You take care. Jaga diri. Jangan lupa update Mak. Love you."
And that was the last I spoke to him...
Tadi tengok berita EnTeeVeeTooJoe, and hearing Harmid Albarr said about the gomen not detaining Ahmad Ismail but detaining the journalist instead:
"He is a party member, and we have a vehicle to punish him, and we have punished him, plus the police report against him is also being investigated."
... like, is that how the law works in our country, izit?
Then, Teresa Kok is also a party member. Why do YOU punish her without trial, Kind Sir???
And PLEASE don't tell us that being an Amenok member means that you'll be immuned to being charged as A CITIZEN OF MALAYSIA???
Who the hell you think you are??? Malaikat ka apa???
Lepas ni, I tell you, sesiapa yang ada niat nak merompak, merogol, lynch money and whatever... sila masuk Amenok ok. Pastinya kau akan selamat.
Oh, he also said, "I don’t think we treat politicians differently...". Well slap me silly and call me Johnny.
Am I worried over Abang??? Yes, of course I am. I am surprisingly calm about him having to 'disappear', though... but at the same time fiyewwwwwrious over the stupidity of the leading gomen.
I guess, I'm calm 'coz I know I would only have to worry about his safety. Aku tak perlu worry about nak sorokkan muka kepala aku kerana aib ke... or nak kena forever hidup dengan tipu muslihat ke. As simple comparison, try to imagine how, say, si Sialful's fiancee or Najibabibun's wife Rosmah had to endure the aib and malu and sumpah laknat rakyat and ludahan jelata... which aku pasti 100juta kali dahsyat than how I'm taking things in now.
At least, in my situation now... aku tak segan nak minta didoakan agar Abang safe and sound.
My utmost, utmost gratitude to the comments and sms-es I received, for the prayers and strength to endure this. Inilah perjuangan kita for our lives and also the next generation's. Insya-Allaaaaaaaaah...
Semoga kita semua diberi kekuatan untuk terus berjuang.
