Recently there was an “instruction” by the Penang state authority ordering cinemas in Penang not to screen tanda putera. This has actually shown how power has gone to Lim Guan Eng.
So far, I’m unsure what the allegation are. Pro pr media paint many allegations including its a fiction. But among the allegation made what I believe they are worried about is that it pictured badly Kit Siang though no direct reference to him is made. It appears to paint Dap in a bad light.
Can DAP and guan eng criticize the movie? If they had seen it and the picture was wrong, its fair to criticise. Further, they always have a remedy in law against Datuk Shuhaimi.
But not seeing and denying others not to see it is totally wrong. They have shouted for years to believe in freedom of expression and the right to differ, and when it depicts them in a bad light they start censoring it and deny the movies to be shown. This is coming from a person who condemns dictatorial methods, abuse of power and even believe in the freedom of expression. Guan Eng is actually doing all this. The state government is protecting DAP and not the public. The request restricts freedom of expression. It shows how intolerant they are. He abuses his state power to protect his dad. And send a fiat to all cinema owners like a dictator.
Guan Eng is wrong on this. He must account for the directives. He must account for the abuse of power. We must stop this dictatorial tokong.
