Quiet-please-bMelayu Stampin has no problem on the amendments that aimed to protect the country’s peace, harmony and stability.

However, Melayu Stampin does not feel comfortable with the insertion of a provision into the act to prosecute those who incite Sabah and Sarawak to leave Malaysia.

Does this mean that Sarawak could not leave Malaysia when the ‘marriage’ is no longer ‘workable’?

If Sarawakians could have a referendum before forming Malaysia, why cant we have a referendum before the Sedition Act is amended?

Because the ‘new’ Sedition Act will have a negative impact on our right to dissolve the ‘marriage’.

Melayu Stampin agrees 100% with an assertion that it is stupid to leave Malaysia NOW.

But 100 years down the road, will it still be stupid?

Or it will be the best decision?
