In the last seating of Dewan Rakyat & Dewan Negara, The Evidence (Amendment) (No2) Act 2012 was passed. In which a new set of rule has been amended into (Section 114A) has been inserted into The Evidence Act 1950.
Being a semi-ignorant Malaysian, I always don't bother about whatever Acts that the government has decided and fixed, knowing that Malaysia Government is very caring and nice to the people. The set of laws approved usually brings benefits to the rakyat, thus ensuring Malaysians to live harmoniously.
However, since last night (31st May 2012), I saw some of my friends mentioning about the new amended act. Which content as below:-

- Monitor and moderate the comments in our blog. (Which I will have to set it later).
- Monitor and Delete any seditious remarks/post that anyone post on your Facebook Wall. (Which means you have to have a smartphone/tab/note that will notify you incoming posts on your wall so that you can delete any unwanted posts written on your wall)
- Warn your family members/housemates that if they post any offensive stuff you will break ties with them. Before that, write a memo and stick to their room doors. Otherwise, ask them to get their own WiFi / Internet.
- Resist yourself from clicking the "Share" button no matter how true the offensive statements are. Perhaps clicking "like" is acceptable.
Anyway, whatever it is. A law is still a law. Going against the law, normally brings chaos. Like people say "di mana bumi dipijak, di situ langit dijunjung", meaning that wherever you go, you have to adapt to the place's rules and regulation.
Freedom of speech has reached a new meaning in Malaysia. It's THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU TYPE, and FEAR after that.
