Says Nation in Social Media
A video is being viral on social media, especially on Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp. An old man, Krishnan hitting Najib’s portrait with a slipper became an issue and it looks like this is not the first time.
Indians are known to be very polite and decent. In Malaysia, Indians are respected by other ethnic’s. But looking at the behavior, some are tarnishing the name of Indians in Malaysia. This type of rude behavior does not help in establishing harmony in the nation. This does not respect the laws of the nation or the right to peacefull assemble. Is this a good habit to be practiced and be proud of?
We Malaysian have our ways of communicating with our fellow countrymen and we are well known for our humble communicating methods which has been the main factor to ensure harmony in our multinational society. We have been successfully securing this harmonious environment for 57 years since our independence and yes, we had some dark incident took place in 1963. After that which we have grown stronger and the unity among us has been secured till today.
These are some of the incident that might cause instability in our peaceful community which we strongly oppose for individual to take things into their hands and display dissatisfaction in public. They fail to understand that their actions will not only cause discomfort to others, but might stir commotion among our fellow Malaysians. We have an organization such as GMMF which has embarked on a journey to reach all Malaysian to be a responsible moderate.
So, this is how we fight to become a developed nation? We should be a citizen with maturity. Don’t take decisions which affect the Indians culture and tradition. How do we define hitting a leader picture with a slipper? Lets see what has the social media mate has to say.
“Actually, this act is not advisable. We were not brought up in such way. I am seriously against this action,” said Arumainathan.
“I am not quite sure what is his background or how he is affected by Najib. But using slipper to show his dissatisfaction is unacceptable. Instead humiliating Najib, he has humiliated himself, whoever can be the leader, but we as a citizen should respect our leaders,”says Arivalagan, Klang.
“There is always a solution for all the problems. You should not react in such way. It is definitely not the way one should portray their dissatisfaction, especially in public,” says Shamini.
“Each and every human is unique. We need to understand that. In any situation there will be two ways to react. First, the things that we want to do and two, the things we suppose to do. I believe, the uncle and others reacted based on what they wanted to do and not based on rational and the outcome. If they really looked into it, they would have done what they supposed to do. There has been examples, where the civil servants showed their protest by completing their job light years ahead of what it would take. That would have been a positive way of protest, Malaysians need to adapt this type of positive protest by knowing the end result they want to achieve,” said Nyanikumaran from Rawang.
Hence, we strongly advise any Malaysians to not engage me any activity that will jeopardize our unity and peace, but use the right channel to voice your view and thoughts.
