A group that calls itself the Chinese Martyrs’ Brigade has claimed responsibility for crashing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which remains missing after losing contact with ground control at 1:20am on Saturday en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Malaysia’s Defence cum Transport Minister, Hishamuddin Hussien was quick to dismiss this claim. Should they not be looking into it? There were (1) motive and (2) opportunity.
The group asserts two motives for the alleged terrorist attack. The first is to retaliate against the Malaysian government for “cruel persecution,” though no further details were provided. The second is to respond to the Chinese government for its persecution of the Uyghur ethnic minority
It was reported that the Malaysian police was looking into an Uighur, highly educated in engineering, skills in electronics. Could he be the martyr sent to sabotage the flight? They were also other Chinese nationals aboard who could be the perpetrators.
Instead, they are looking into the captain of MH370, alleged sympathizer of Anwar Ibrahim and who was upset with the latter’s conviction of sodomy which was clearly politically motivated. UMNO, the ruling party, to have sunk this low is disgusting, showing no respect for the victims and families.
