Can Dapsters fit the definition for ‘terrorist’?
“Whose idea was it to have this National Security Council law?”, asks Hannah Yeoh.
Well, whoever whose brainchild it was, the National Security Council Act nonetheless omitted to define what/who is a ‘terrorist’.
Under the NSC Act, definitions are provided for the following terms:
- angkatan tentera
- benda berbahaya
- entiti kerajaan
- kawasan keselamatan
- ketua pengarah
- pasukan keselamatan
- pengarah operasi
Does a Dapster fall under the definition of ‘terrorist’ because he is armed and dangerous — i.e. with cyber weapons to carry out character assassination, blood libel and mass destruction of reputation.
The ammunition used by Dapsters is bohong and fitnah which are capable of causing serious damage (chaos, mayhem, riots) and severe injury to the standing of public institutions and integrity of authority figures.
Dapsters throw grenades/bombs or detonate explosives to destroy trust and goodwill in the community. They also spread extremist ideologies that breed extremism.
They are a threat to public order and a menace to the safety of our society.
In short, they terrorize the population.
