Malaysia established diplomatic ties with Communist China – the sponsors of the Malayan communist Party – in 1974. The Malayan Communist Party (MCP) and the Government of Malaysia signed a peace accord on 2nd December, 1989. This begs the question, why does the Barisan Nasional government still fear the Communists or is BN instilling fear among the Malays. More importantly, do Communists actually exist in Malaysia and if they do, should they be criminalised and punished for what they believe in? This video may shed some answer.
