Freedom! Teresa conveys her gratitude

Teresa Kok: “I didn’t do anything wrong” (Photo courtesy of her blog)

Just off the phone with Teresa Kok and she sounds happy to be back.

I asked her if the police had given her a tough time and kept her awake at night with interrogations and all the usual things they tend to do with ISA detainees.

She said, “No, because I hadn’t done anything wrong. They couldn’t find anything.”

Anyway, she was delighted to hear that so many people had been praying for her release.

Blog reader gregwar sends this prayer:

A Prayer for Teresa

The Lord is my shepherd;
I have everything I need.
He lets me see a country of justice and peace
and directs my steps towards his land.

He gives me new power.
He guides me in the paths of victory,
as he has promised.

Even if a full-scale violent confrontation breaks out
I will not be afraid Lord,
if you are with me.
Your shepherd’s power and love protects me.

You prepare for me my freedom,
where all my enemies can see it;
you welcome me as an honoured guest
and fill my cup with righteousness and peace.

I know that your goodness and love will
be with me all my life;
and your liberationg love will be my home
as long as I love.

By Zephania Kameeta, based on Psalm 25 in “Why O Lord
– Psalms and Sermons” (World Council of Churches)

“Please convey my love and gratitude to all those who thought of me and prayed for my early release, ” she said, adding that Malaysians need to make sure the others are freed as well.

She has described her detention as being politically motivated. “My experience in detention has convinced me of the need to change the government.”

It’s actually based on Psalm 23, not Psalm 25 🙂

It is good Teresa is out, but we want to see all the rest out I would like to ask all to sign the petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/isa1234/petition.html View Current Signatures – Sign the Petition To: Prime Minister of Malaysia We, citizens and friends of Malaysia from the international community, call upon Dato’ Seri Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi, Prime Minister of Malaysia, to act immediately to set free Raja Petra Kamaruddin and Teresa Kok who are presently being held in detention without the right of due process under the Internal Security Act (ISA). We also call for the release of the… Read more »

With all the controversy swirling around the detention of Teresa Kok’s detention under the ISA, nobody seems to have been willing to address the main question of the whole saga, which is: Has Malaysia’s inter-religious relationship deteriorated so much over the last 50 years or so since Merdeka that it is not possible for any one to ask, without risking being detained under the ISA, members of another religion to be considerate towards their neighbours? …

Beware all victims in Bolehland – rape victim, ah long victims, land scam victims, accident victims, get-rich-quick scheme victims, false-report victims, Ahmad Ismail-inspired racial victims – now you can get justice-in-reverse version of Bolehland law: get yourself arrested under ISA for your own protection, being drilled by the police for being the victims for 1 week and hey presto! your case is solved. The perpetrators? don’t need to take action. This Malaysian-style, newly-invented justice that Bolehland can now proudly trumpets as a gift to the whole world.

happy to see Teresa Kok back on action… when they gonna let RPK out!!!

Yes, it is great that Teresa has been released although her arrest, to begin with, clearly indicates an abuse of power by the authorities. Teresa’s point about why the authorities still have not interrogated others who are linked to the so-called reasons she was arrested for show they were clearly politically motivated. What a travesty of justice. It is great that Teresa’s statement does not show she is cowed in any way by the cowardly arrest of her. Indeed, she appears to come out even more righteously fiesty in her fight for the rakyat and a better Malaysia. And more… Read more »

Another UMNO group had made a police report against Anwar for creating uneasiness of the rakyat.Will the police again act on this frivolous report?The image of the police and UMNO is at its lowest ebb now.Any further arrest will aggravate further the image to a point that it would be extremely difficult to resuscitate UMNO and BN in the next election.Pensiangan is slipping away from BN by the day!It is extremely a herculean task for Kurup to win back his seat.

The Almighty has answered part of the RAKYAT’s prayers!
Now let’s keep on praying for the fifty something more poor souls of the RAKYAT who are still in there!
The time has come for the TRUTH to prevail!

Teresa Kok, the ISA heroine returns!

Foolish BN has made heroes and heroines of the very people they try to oppress. More support for PR!

As for BN, score more of your own goals.

Yes, let’s pray for RPK and all those incarcerated for no reason other than not falling in line with the politics of BN. For everyone in prison under ISA, how many family members outside are suffering? I only realise the gravity of this matter during this round and am aghast by the cruelty.

Mary

I believe in the power of prayers and because so many people is praying God’s Grace is with the ISA detainees. I have already started praying for a peaceful transition of power and would be happy if more people join me in prayer.

Teresa showed courage, faith, and inspired us all. She gave us a sense of leadership so lacking in our Government.
Syabas Teresa. We are so proud of you

The intellectual bankruptcy of Malaysia will be a reality soon if the false accusers and real perpetrators of racial and religious provocations are not brought to court with the same vigour as they mistakenly put Teresa Kok and countless others in jail without trial.

I agree with Teresa that the ISA should not be used. One wrong cannot be corrected by another wrong. That is vengeance but the rakyat is only asking for fair justice, be it in principle or enforcement.

Theresa is out and let’s pray for RPK. We all want RPK to be released soon.The world is watching, we are not alone. The government is being watched by all. Justice has to prevail. Let the good ones guide us and the bad ones sent to the bins. Pray for DSAI and pray for the ISA detainees (forget not the 5 who wanted justice for those of Indian origin and the Malaysians in general). Let’s continue praying…. the Divine power is always there to guide us. Believe in Him.
