Malaysian PM says Safety of nation is important than civil liberties.

“There are no civil liberties under Daesh. The best way to uphold civil liberties is to ensure the safety of the nation.” – Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said his country’s new anti-terrorism laws are a necessary weapon against the real threat of Islamic state.
Human rights groups opposing new anti terror law as this law allows police to detain suspects without trial.
Malaysia has passed a controversial anti-terrorism bill, which the government says is needed to tackle the threat from Islamic extremists on 7 April 2015.
Under the legislation, suspects can be held without trial for up to two years, with multiple extensions allowed after that. Decisions on their detention will be made by a terrorism board, rather than the judiciary.
