After the splendid showing where Anwar Ibrahim trounced the Minister of Information (who promised to resign if he did badly, BTW), now the dastardly news.

Anwar was arrested when he exited his house enroute to IPK  was near his house at Bukit Segambut when returning from his interview with the Anti Corruption Agency before heading to IPK Kuala Lumpur.

According to Chegubard who was with him, his car was surrounded by a group of Special Taskforce Police (Unit Tindakan Khas – UTK, the same guys who smashed his house in 1998) wearing masks. They took him into a black-tinted car and drove off.

Anwar’s arrest was well ahead of his deadline of 2.00 pm meeting time to give his witness statement.

According to his lawyer, he is being taken to the now infamous Brickfields Police Station. the Kuala Lumpur Police HQ (IPK KL).

Debate reveals importance of charisma for leadership

The just concluded public debate between Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the Minister of Information clearly spells out the significance of charisma in leadership.

The government – particularly from the BN side must come to terms with a salient fact: The country in its present state cannot match the charisma that goes along with Anwar Ibrahim.

A quick take of leaders around the globe will easily tell that a nation that has a charismatic leader enjoys a lead advantage – be it in politics, business or economics. and that country will enjoy all the advantages of global competition.

As such, politicians especially those grappling within the power-corridors must recognize that leadership without charisma is a major setback for any nation. Today, trying to hold on to power through autocratic means will only crumple a nation to lower pits.

On the contrary, being able to lead through artful persuasion, and to impress and express thoughts and intentions especially through public speaking are indispensable qualities of any anointed leader.

Looking at the political dramas unfolding these past several years and especially since the 12th GE, it is very clear that the forces that be are all out to ‘kill’ a gifted leadership in our midst.

If we truly care for the future of Malaysia – given the changes sweeping the world, then the need for a charismatic leader is paramount.

If we are blessed with one such man or woman who cannot be easily matched for decades, then to politically assassinate such a person seemingly at all costs is a crime that generations will have to keep paying.

Undeniable, the man of the hour is Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. As the debate has clearly revealed, none can match this one man.

So why are the forces that be rallying to extinguish such gifted national and regional talent when Malaysia and its neighbors can enjoy such leadership ?

Let us not live to regret this over the history pages some day in the future.

16. lovemalaysiaforever - July 16, 2008

Police really have nothing more important to do other than arresting him that is what Malaysia Police Department is! A bunch of silly dogs under order of BN Pak Lah, Najib and Mahathir governance…

Definately rakyat will do something this time, we will see…

17. momo - July 16, 2008

Thanks goodness, finally … what took them so long.
With the Sodomist in jail, now the goverment can concentrate in improving the people life instead of wasting time to counter the Sodomist lies.

18. KevinP - July 16, 2008

Here we go again, another dog and pony show! What will happened to the future of this country? 50 years of abuse, corruption, cronyism is not enough? Fellow Malaysian, we must all unite and fight for Justice, Law and Order. PLEASE DON NOT resort to violence to resolve the democratic movement! God bless you all who are still fighting in Malaysia! Daulat Tuanku! Daulat Tuanku! Daulat Tuanku!

Obviously very stupid…and smart. They want you and I to react like this and run amok on street. Then blame PKR whom cannot handle the situation and kick them off the 5 states. And then all blame AAB and he steps down under pressure and NAJIB rises to glory and C4 all of us….

Wallah Mahathir YOU bloody good man..you did it 1 more time!!!

People, let’s pray for DSAI.
May God deliver us from the evils of the ruling government.

30. How Sad - July 16, 2008

I guess if he is not being released. We all (the rakyat) should go down to the police HQ and stay vigillent. We must do our part too.

Umno is acting like cornered rats now. Dear Malaysians, be strong and united, because it’s now or never.

33. Expat - July 16, 2008

It is so sad for me to see what happens to Anwar today. It is simply a reinforcement of why I left M’sia 25 years ago. There was no justice, no democracy and rampant corruption before. If anything else, what I can see is things got worse in M’sia now. I hope there will be a strong movement to oust the government and restore justice in M’sia!

34. crash - July 16, 2008

this is a hard time, it’s almost like you know it’s wrong and yet nobody can do anything about it. except banging the wall.

i won’t say let,s hope bla bla bla.. as we all know… we are pretty much out of hope.

35. nadzrikamsin - July 16, 2008

What’s next for Anwar?

36. Hitam Had - July 16, 2008

Is this the begining of the end for all of us?? This action proves once again that power in the hands of the unenlightened will always be abused.

a false sodomy charge

is not the same

as the murder of the mongolian girl.

if the stupid dpm thinks he can vindicate himself with such stupid act they are wrong.

It only proves they are desperate to cover their shit big time

It only proves the stupid dpm was the one giving order to her death.
