Consumerist: Uninvited SMS Sent By Political Parties To Private Mobile Phones An Intrusion Into One’s Privacy!

All Malaysians agree that the definitions of privacy does vary widely according to context, definition and environment or context.

But the fact remains that in several countries, the concept has been fused with data protection, which interprets privacy in terms of management of personal information.

I would categorically state that privacy is one of the fundamental rights that should be enshrined in statute so that the rights and interests of Malaysian will be protected.

Which includes the collection and handling of personal data such as private hand-phone numbers, information on one’s residential address, credit information, and of privacy of medical and government records

But it is obvious someone does not respect Malaysians right to privacy!

It is obvious that the data pertaining to an individual voter and of all Malaysians is today compromised as we are flooded by SMS from political parties, politicians and other predators!

The pertinent question is how did third parties namely these politicians and political parties get possession of our private mobile numbers?

IF a politician and a political party cannot assure me a Malaysian and a voter of a fundamental right to my privacy why should I vote for them?

IF a politician or a political party cannot respect my need for privacy why should I trust them despite their political cries and rhetoric?

Are Malaysians not been compromised when a violation so basic is been done right before our very eyes?
