ABOLISH THE UNFAIR ISA LAW & FREE ALL DETAINEES, LET THEM DEFEND THEMSELVES IN COURT

I read with dismay that another S'porean man has been arrested for professing his support for ISIS terrorist group. I believe this to be unjust and unfair. The Internal Security Act (ISA) used to arrest Zulfikar is an archaic law, undemocratic and should be abolished! Under the law, Mr Zulfikar Shariff has not commited a single crime! Did he hurt someone? Did he work for the terrorist group? Why are they not given a fair trial in open court? What is the Government afraid of the people knowing? Do the right thing and abolish the ISA, free all those unfairly arrested by this unjust law and allow them to defend themselves.

ZULFIKAR SHARIFF’S WHOLE FAMILY PLEDGED LOYALTY TO ISIS FLAG, ARE THEY THREATS TO S’PORE TOO?

The S'porean man Zulfikar Shariff who was arrested for terrorism-related charges was photographed pledging allegiance to a black colour flag. I am not expert on this flag but just google and you know this flag is now the trademark icon used by the ISIS terrorists. But my worrying part about all this is the people in the photo with him, they are his family members and I assume all are his sons. They all posed with the black flag and presumbly support the same ideas as their father?

ARREST OF RELIGIOUS FANATIC ZULFIKAR IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR DRACONIAN ISA LAW

In the wake of the arrest of Zulfikar Mohamad Shariff, many have said that his arrest under the ISA justifies the ISA. Now, I believe there is value in retaining the ISA, as long as there are sufficient safeguards to prevent its abuse (the current safeguards are not entirely satisfactory, but that's another story). And I support firm and decisive action being taken in this case. The ISA is a draconian law. It gives our government sweeping, discretionary powers to arrest and detain people for an effectively indefinite period of time without the possibility of judicial review.

PRC NEW CITIZEN KENA ISA BECAUSE HE IS SAF-TRAINED SUPER SOLDIER, CONFIRM KILL MANY TERRORISTS

The Ministry of Home Affairs said that PRC new citizen Wang Yuandongyi was arrested under the ISA for wanting to fight in a Kurdish militia group against the Islamic State (ISIS). A top military official Mr Wah Dua Pao shared under the condition of anonymity that the real reason for Wang Yuandongyi's detention was due to his incredible fighting prowess on the battlefield. Because of the SAF's world class realism training during BMT, Wang like all other NSFs was conditioned to be the ultimate killing machine. He would have done extremely well on the Syrian battlefield against ISIS terrorists.

PARIS TERROR: DO LIBERALS STILL CRY TO ABOLISH S’PORE’S INTERNAL SECURITY ACT?

There has been a noticeable silence from liberals in the wake of the Paris massacre. We do not hear the usual cry to abolish the Internal Security Act and the concomitant State power to detain without trial, to abandon capital punishment and to champion freedom of expression. Where have all the liberals gone? Gone to try quiet places with heads turned away from the nasty reality that there are bad people willing and capable of doing bad things. Really bad. And no amount of high flown rhetoric or rational debate will stay their hand.
