Should I stop writing?

I'M TRYING TO OVERCOME THE 'CULTURE OF FEAR' EVEN THOUGH RECEIVING AND GOING TO RECEIVE PRESSURES FROM VARIOUS SITES (AUTHORITIES, CAMPUS ADMINISTRATION, POLITICIANS, GOVERNMENT AND ETC)

After almost two years since I started to write my opinion via blog, I received a lot of pressures from various party including my campus administration. I think I need to make decision now whether I should stop everything here or continue to deliver the inner feeling of mine.

I am blurring now, the Timbalan Pengarah Pengurusan of my campus, Encik Abu Bakar warned me in front of my campus mates to stop writing such articles. ‘Mana Vasantaro! Angkat tangan!’ he 'shouted' in the weekly assembly past Monday in front of almost 700 students and lecturers. I don’t know what was his intention whether to humiliate me or he has his personal agendas in his mind.

I know something will happen that morning when he started to talk about networking. My guess was right that he definitely would mention about me because he met me personally few months ago and told me to stop writing such articles in blog. It’s a fact that he rarely gives speech in the assembly, but his first speech in this year is all about to urge me to stop blogging such articles. Anything wrong with my articles?

No matter what had happened, I am still respecting and inspired from the guaranteed freedom of speech in Article 1o of the federal constitution. Whether 174 Act (my campus act) or University and University College Act (UUCA) stopping me, I believe that federal constitution is more respectable, noble and the highest of the all constitutions in our nation. I hope my campus administration knows that.

And the most important thing is my writings are apolitical, I did not voiced out direct support to any political parties. I write the fact and truth, what can I do if the ruling party really failed the nation, why I must scared to write the truth? Is it wrong if I attacked them in my blog? Why I must always shut my mouth even though the cruelty done by the government is very open and clear?

Is it wrong to write the truth? Is it wrong to tell what our heart speaks? Is it wrong to tell something good to the development of my beloved nation? My dear brothers and sisters, if you support my cause, leave your opinion here, and if don’t just ignore this post. I will wait for the response of my friends whether I should stop my writing or continue as usual.

I leave it you, because my all my writings so far is just for you. Forgive me if I hurt anyone in my writing, my intention is not to hurt anyone, but to build a bright and ideal Malaysia for our future generations with my fellow brother and sisters.

SHOULD I ZIP MY MOUTH EVEN THOUGH THE DAMAGES HAPPENING FREQUENTLY AROUND ME?

WHY IT'S SO HARD TO GET THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN A 'SO CALLED DEMOCRATIC NATION'?

AM I NOTHING TO THIS NATION AS I COULDN'T VOICE OUT MY FEELING AND EXPRESSION AS A RIGHTFUL CITIZEN?

OR AT LEAST CAN I DREAM FOR THE 'TRUE MEANING OF DEMOCRACY' WHEN THERE IS NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH?
