Charlie Hebdo

We stand in unity with the French people. We must fight extremism with moderation.

Najib Razak, Prime Minister, condemning in the strongest terms all of violence following the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, France


Do they need to make fun of Prophet Muhammad even when they know it hurts Muslims. We respect their religion and they must respect ours.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, claiming the Charlie Hebdo massacre could be a backlash against the French satirical magazine's provocation towards Islam


Any disagreement with the said cartoons should be responded in a civilised manner.

Zunar (Zulkiflee Anwar Haque), Malaysian political satire cartoonist 


Visa fee waiver for Chinese tourists

The trend is going up, the Chinese are coming back and the figures in October, November and December last year are good, so it has to be now. My personal appeal to the Home Ministry is, don't wait.

Nazri Aziz, Tourism and Culture Minister, calling to expedite the implementation of the proposed waiver of the visa fee for Chinese tourists to be in place before the Chinese New Year next month


Sarawak’s redelineation

EC chairperson Abdul Aziz Yusoff (left) did not appear to understand our major contention that the maps did not feature boundaries of polling districts, an essential piece of information that can help voters ascertain whether there is gerrymandering. And we are certain, based on the EC’s record, that there would be plenty of that monkey business in its proposed electoral boundaries for Sarawak.

Bersih, coalition for clean and fair elections, hitting out at the Election Commission's (EC) response to a serious omission in the new delineation maps saying the present information serves to obfuscate the process


Kelantan floods

In order to clear all doubts, I would like to state that all the villages surrounding the said land were not affected by the recent flood. If the surrounding villages were not affected by the flood, how can the development of the said land contribute to the flood that is about 65 km away?

Nga Kor Ming and Ngeh Koo Ham, Perak DAP top leaders, denying allegations that their plantation company is among the cause for the severe floods in Kelantan


We must set aside political ideology and if it can be done, it can lead to more success.

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Umno vice-president, insisting that the cooperation between  the Federal Government and the PAS-led Kelantan state government in addressing the floods and other matters must be sincere
