I read from from Anil Netto’s blog about the family of one of the ISA detainees. I then head over to Norlaila’s blog. Norlaila’s husband has been in ISA for six years already. This Hari Raya is going to be the seventh Raya that he spends in ISA in Kamunting. I cannot imagine the things Puan Norlaila goes through alone, with her son.
So, what can we do? Here’s how we can show our support for Puan Norlaila, her son Suhaib and her husband, Mat Sah and all the ISA detainees. Send a raya card to Kamunting for Mat Sah. Let’s show him and all the detainees that we are fighting for the abolishment of the ISA. And let’s pray the prison authorities there will be touched with our thoughts and concerns and treat them nicer. (I am naive and too idealistic, I know.)
Hari Raya Aidil Fitri is coming. This year, Suhaib’s dad would be celebrating the eid for the seventh time in the Kem. Just to make him happy, please care to send hari Raya cards to him at this address:
Mat Sah Bin Mohd Satray,
Tempat Tahanan Perlindungan,
This posting about father and son touched me a lot. How an eight years old child has to grow up without his father and their limited time of 45 minutes to interact through a glass window.
You should also read the yearnings of a wife longing for her husband to be home to live a normal life instead of being detained without trial. She said her life came to a standstill.
Do something, my dear friends. Even if it is just a card for Mat Sah. We do not want these agonies to happen to us or our loved ones, do we? So, make a stand that ISA is to be abolished. NOW.
