Farewell Pak Samad

Pak Samad was detained briefly by the British in 1946, and again in 1951.

Upon his release in 1953, Pak Samad co-founded PAP along with LKY.

After moving to Malaysia, he would later be detained under ISA by the BN government. TDM released Pak Samad later but did not abolish ISA.

Today, during his kebumian, no doubt many powerful people will be present to shed their tears and to bid farewell, but for a great man such as Pak Samad, dont they realise that the single most decent thing that they can still do for Pak Samad is to abolish the draconian ISA?
