Now, it is a severed heads of wild boars being thrown at two mosques in Kuala Lumpur in the early morning of Wednesday 27, January. Previously, it was a severed cow head being paraded around in Shah Alam, and the case is still pending. I just do not know if the perpetrators will ever be charged in court. Or is it going to be another NFA case.
And at last, we now hear a more strident words from Home Affairs Minister, Hishamuddin when he is reported to have said, “we are dead serious about this (referring to the severed boar head incident), and we will bring them (who are they?) to justice”. But I think, such words comes a bit too late. Hishamuddin should have been 'dead serious' when the first church burning incident occurred early in the month. Not after a dozen or more cases of arson attempts on churches, suraus and even a Sikh Temple. So, by saying that he is now dead serious, gives one the impression that he wasn't that serious earlier, after all. And that must be the reason why he could afford to be out of the country, at a time when the country is saddled with a serious problem.
Now, the severed wild boar head incident is beginning to turn ugly; and this incident can ignite serious sectarian violence, which all peace loving Malaysians would want to avoid. Peace loving Malaysians do not want to see another May 13 occurring; certainly not me anymore. I do not know where Hishamuddin was at the time, and I know for sure that no soldiers would want to be involved on public order duties. Soldiers are trained to fight and kill an invading enemy; not killing civilians. That was how I was trained, but sadly politicians think quite the contrary.
I believe this incident would not have happened if the Home Affairs Ministry was 'dead serious' in handling this racially and religiously sensitive issue. The way I see it, the action taken by the authorities is not to my expectation, and sorry for saying this.
And had I been the Prime Minister, honestly, I would have given the Home Affairs Minister and the IGP a sack.
