KUALA LUMPUR: A task force has been set up to monitor and investigate organisations infused with ideas on the colour revolution to topple the Barisan Nasional (BN) government.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the task force comprise the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and the Attorney General.

Zahid, who is also Home Minister, said intelligence reports found that several organisations have been infused with ideas on the colour revolution.

They include Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram), Bersih, Bar Council Malaysia, Malaysia and Sarawak Report.

“Bersih has launched five series of street demonstrations sponsored by  Soros (George) through the National Demoracy Institute (NDI) and the Open Society Foundations (OSF).

“They launched the yellow revolution to topple the government but failed,” the Umno vice-president said during winding up session at Umno general assembly 2016, here yesterday.

Zahid said the colour revolution spread to Arab countries such as Libya, Syria, Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen, under the so-called Arab Spring.

Foreign intervention via revolution without violence was founded by Gene Sharp of Albert Einstein Institute in 1983, to train, plan and develop strategy to topple democratic governments.

“After the success, he (Sharp) pioneered the colour revolution movement via the Centre for Applied Non Violent Action Strategies) and Otpor (Serbian political organisation) which use the hand symbol in almost all revolutions.” —Bernama
