BN's Violent Behaviour at Ijok

The Ijok by-election has proven to be the nastiest and most marred by BN's violent culture of gangsterism in history.

In all its years of existence, KeADILan has proven its dedication to non-violent struggle within the bounds of democracy and we can now prove that it is BN, with the help of the police that are the perpetrators of a violent brand of politics. The following is a narrative of events where KeADILan leaders and campaigners were violently accosted by BN and the police.
