On August 20th 200, I asked myself, is Sheih next blogger to be arrested? Today, 17th September 2008, the question is duly answered, affirmative. Sheih had been arrested under Sedition Act, the same fearful law that was used to nab Bakaq a.k.a Penarik Beca.
For the uninitiated, Sheih is well known as an anti-establishment blogger for a long time, but his trouble only began when he started a blog campaign to fly the Malaysian flag upside down, giving the power that be a ‘good’ excuse to come down hard on Sheih and Sedition Act seems just perfect for that.
In the meantime, Sheih’s and Bariah’s (his wife) 2nd year Ramadhan Charity 2008 project had collected close to RM21,000 from well wishers and donors, and it looks like Bariah had no choice but to continue this project a lone ranger, but I am sure she will be assisted by many close associates in Kota Bharu.
I pray that Sheih will be able to stand this test and may Allah be with him all the time during this difficult time. Let us all also pray that his family members will also be under His guidance too. I do hope and pray Sheih will be released soon and be back home to celebrate Hari Raya Aidil Fitri with his beloved family and friends. Amin.
