There has been so much of hue and cry over the beating by rioters of one of our Malaysian student Asyraf Haziq Rossli during the riots in London recently. The news was all over our mainstream media for days and including the BBC, CNN etc. UMNO even questioned why was the opposition mute over the incident? While the action taken by UMNO to help Asyraf off his predicament and his family is commendable, little attention however is given to incidents in the country eg. the many death while in police custody and the overzealous act by our policemen shooting dead a schoolboy in Shah Alam. I would also like to commend the action by the office of the Malaysian High Commission in London to take full charge of the situation affecting Asyraf, and calling for a press conference was the right thing to do and for Asyraf to express his views about the incident.
Now, aren’t the above serious incidents i.e death in police custody and the shooting of the schoolboy warrant speedy investigation and justice for the bereaved family members? I now want to ask, what is UMNO’s and our political leaders stand over these incidents? Has there been any assistance given to the bereaved family members? I am still not convinced that the action taken by the authorities over the many cases of death in police custody and even the handling of the shooting of the schoolboy in Shah Alam is fair. As I have stated in some previous articles that we now have a number of government salaried killers in our midst, and they are roaming free. But I know for sure that those who are guilty of incurring such death, or are an accomplished will not be free of their conscience. There is certainly no escape for them, and if they are Muslims (applies to other faith as well) their fate is sealed when they meet their creator to answer to all their misdeeds. The problem with us is that we do not see the ‘hereafter’, and by not seeing, we do not know nor feel what it is like to be in hell.
This goes also for all those who are corrupt, and there are thousands around us that lives a luxurious lifestyle due to their corrupt practice. Have we not heard the story of the gatekeeper that became rich and build himself a palatial home in Klang, but did not live long enough to enjoy the fruits of his labor? And are we not now seeing a former head of a state government being charged for alleged corruption relating to acquisition of some properties in Selangor? What a way to end an illustrious life i.e. from being an honorable and respected individual to one of scorn and despise. I do not know what it is like to be in court facing a corruption charge, but I think the air conditioned court room being kept at 24 degree Celsius is cool enough to keep the accused in a balance physical and mental state of mind.
It was just a few hours ago that I received a call from someone that I do not know asking me this question, “What is happening to our country today. Where is the racial and religious tolerance that our political masters talked about”? The caller notes that we are more divided today than that at the time of her father. I totally agree with the caller, and I explained that me being of the age of her father had gone through a different period of life i.e. one of respect, tolerance and where issues of race and religion among the society then were kept sacred and wasn’t a hindrance in our social upbringing and lifestyle.
Now we hear of Ezam Nor who was made a senator with the courtesy of the Najib’s government taking of wanting to burn Malaysiakini news portal over the raid by JAIS on a church in PJ incident. I challenge Ezam to go and burn the news portal, if he dares. I say, do not try to be another Malay champion like that froggy Ibrahim Ali, who chickened out during the Bersih rally after all his threats. And did Ezam not chicken out with his lies about having in his possession boxes of files on corrupt individuals that he wished to expose; only to shut up now that he is appointed an honorable senator? I now want to ask Ezam, did he not lie about the loads of files? And I wonder what criteria and basis was used by Najib to have Ezam appointed a senator? And I personally see nothing that Ezam did in the past that is so outstanding that qualifies him to be a senator other than him being a coward.
