Sexebitionist duo Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee

It is expected that sexebitionist duo Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee would be charged tomorrow in Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court under Section 233 of the Multimedia Act, for their Bah Kut Teh ‘Selamat Berbuka Puasa’ sordid sinister prank.

If found guilty, they maximum penalty they could face is jailed for one year, fined RM 50,000.00 or both.

The sordid prank which was posted on Facebook, circulated widely and became viral. It drew a lot of rage from Malaysian Muslims, who saw it as an insult against Muslims facing the holiest month in the year.

Mainstream media carried the issue as a national story and it was even raised in the current sitting of the Dewan Rakyat.

Many hardliners amongst Malay-Muslim are expected to react against this news and would want to see the authorities charge them under a more stiffer law. Probably under the Sedition Act.

  1. This comment is addressed to the kiasu DAP bloke at 06:20 calling himself Malaysian, who had always tried to hog DAP lines here and elsewhere:

    I’ll have you know that this is a much more serious and grave offence. This involves the Constitution of the country. Islam is written under Article 3 of the Constitution as “the religion” of Malaysia. Meaning it is august, supreme and more important than any other religion in the country.

    In fact, no other religion is mentioned in the Constitution at all. Islam is the religion of the majority of the population. Action priority must be for acts against “the religion” of the country.

    Especially when the attempt to abuse it occurs during the fasting month. A month of solitude and prayers. A month of trial and tribulations for the Muslims undergoing fights against jinns, syaitans and devils of all sorts. It is therefore doubly serious for anyone trying to disturb the peace the Muslims try very hard to achieve spiritually and physically in the fasting month.

    Do you understand? Ada faham? Ngarti? Maronong? Wakaru?

  2. Even as they’re slandering the faithful during this Ramadan when the Holy Quran was first revealed, these swines are inviting other young people in cyberspace to join them in their sex orgies – real stink and filth!

  3. This couple has a track record of controversies in their names, so they deserve to be punished to serve as symbols of the government’s iron resolve to uphold the laws of the land.

  4. why 50k only? charged them 500k or more bcoz they used the Halal logo without Jakim’s approval & make sure put them in jail for many years or rotan 50x before let them free again.

  5. If anyone says the two don’t know they are insulting Islam, it’s utter nonsense. Everybody knows pork is haram, unclean and forbidden to all Muslims.

    If the two say they just want to see the reaction of the Muslims, then they should also see it when in prison.

  6. They say, ‘You are what you eat’.

    So no wonder these two behave like swines!

    • They might even ‘eat what they shit’.

      I hope they they’ll do that in the lock up and in jail

  7. Good. Very good.

    Bail not granted. Means they will be languishing behind bars. Over 1 month to case mention and many more months to actual trial.

    Hope they don’t get others to do what they did while in the lock up. Very clear proof, I expect prison term for them.

    But charged under Sedition Act, what happens if Najib abolishes the Act before they serve their prison term?

    Ahmad Zahid said 90% of crimes committed or masterminded by the Emergency Ordinance prisoners who were released – Najib already abolished the EO. Must get UMNO abolish Najib from UMNO Presidency so that Sedition Act can be retained.

    • This Najib fella said govt wouldnt back track on repeal of EO. He said a replacement law will be discussed to balance between individual rights, freedom of individuals and community interests, and ensure there’d be no abuse of power. Well, whose individual rights and freedom was he referring to? EO detainees who were released have gone back to crime and become repeat offenders. So do we still want to protect the freedom and rights of these criminals? Leaders should not be afraid to be tough on crime and should not confuse rights and freedom of individuals with a mechanism that could be improved to ensure detainees are treated humanely. With improved mechanism , preventive detention should be viewed as not abuse of freedom and rights of individuals but rather to safeguard the freedom, rights and interest of the innocent majority.

  8. Something curious here. This couple had easily obtained the Halal logo to be printed on their photo.

    Wonder if those food/snacks in the market are checked for Halal authenticity before they reach the supermarket shelves.

    The non-Muslim producers could have easily printed the Halal logo on their products to capture the Muslim market without getting proper certification and clearance.

  9. Berapa kerat cina beng buat kutukan resmi terbuka terhadap dua orang kes ini ?
    Mengapa diam sunyi sepi:- Wong Chun The Star,Oriental Daily,Sin Chew,Hua Zhong Dong Zhong ACCIM,SCAH, ribuan Dato Datuk, Datuk Seri Dato Seri Padukaa ,Dato Amar, puluhan TanSri TanSri Ketua Menter (aH Beng Pinang) Perak Cousin Hailam,Lim senior dan 3,000,000 pengundi tsunami Cina ?
    Ah Jib Gorrr dan strategik director tak nampak ke ?
    Ah jib gor yang amat kasih cinta sekolah vernakular dan bapak sekolah cina ?
    arjuna waspada
    changkat lobak

  10. Charge them and throw them in jail. Let this be an example to others who think this kind of comment / posting is funny. I’m not Muslim, but, this is simply too much and too offensive to be swallowed!
