On 25 March, RFM interview Yasin on the Reformation song which has been made the AMK campaign song throughout the country and also his hopes on the uprising of voices of Malaysians.
Yasin said that he was interviewed by telephone on the radio station which is based in London, United Kingdom and did not suspect that the radio station was facing problems as claimed by the MCMC.
“It is nothing much really, I did not know that this radio (station) was having problems with the government, eight days ago they interviewed me via telephone and asked about the Reformation song and my hopes for Malaysia,” he told reporters.
Meanwhile, Yasin and Samsul are of the opinion that press freedom must be given to all practitioners of the media to deliver information to the people rather than block them with various acts and laws.
When it was launched several weeks ago, RFM also interviewed some famous political leaders like Opposition Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim about the defamation imposed upon him.
