Raja Petra Kamaruddin - the People's Hero

Malaysiakini reports that Raja Petra Kamaruddin (RPK) has been ordered to be in court at 9.30am today, most likely to answer charges for sedition.

Malaysiakini reports:

Raja Petra Kamaruddin, the webmaster of news portal Malaysia Today, will be charged tomorrow for sedition at the Magistrates' Court in the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex in Jalan Duta.

And in Bahasa Malaysia:

Raja Petra Kamaruddin, pengendali blog Malaysia Today, akan dihadapkan di Mahkamah Majistret Kuala Lumpur di Jalan Duta esok atas tuduhan menghasut.

"Saya telah diarahkan supaya menyerah diri di Mahkamah Majistret Jalan Duta pada jam 9.30 pagi esok...untuk diakwa atas tuduhan menghasut," katanya malam ini.

RPK was not surprise by this, in fact he expected this all along as indicated by his postings on his blog - Malaysia-Today in his posting "What is Islam?".

For those who have not been following the series of events, RPK agitated some higher-uppers when he posted the article, "LET’S SEND THE ALTANTUYA MURDERERS TO HELL" in which he implicated the DPM - Najib Tun Razak and his wife Rosmah with in the murder of Altantuya, which we all know is still on-going. Najib and wife quickly presented their rebuttals that RPK reproduced on his website along with his reply to Najib's press statement.

Then RPK was called up for questioning where he refused to give his statement and thus leading to him being called up to appear in court this morning. So RPK, the most influential Malaysian blogger, will most likely be charged with sedition.

The world is watching for this could be the turning of the tide for Malaysia. Najib the heir apparent will have to face off with RPK and finally be force to break silence on the Altantuya issue which has been a torn in his side since the day his name was mentioned in court.

Un-knowingly or knowingly, RPK has brought this case back into the public radar and finally justice will be served; not behind a closed curtain but in public view. The atmosphere is primed for this event to happen, with the public's eye on the everything the Pak Lah administration is doing, this could be the final nail in the coffin for BN.

RPK will serve time because the powers-that-be have been trying so hard in vain to shut him up but very much like Anwar Ibrahim, RPK sacrifice will install him as a folk-hero. The People's Hero and mind you, RPK has a silent following among Malaysian's netizens (myself included).

So fellow Malaysians, if you love this country; let's throw our support behind RPK. Let's show this current establishment that the People of Malaysia not only speak during the elections but at all times when the need arises. The People would not let their voice be left unheard, The People will make their thoughts be heard and seen.

I will be following this closely for RPK is more than just a blogger, he's the People's Hero.
