The name is Ahmad Ismail, and he carries with him the title Datuk. Many Malaysians, and it does not only conform to Chinese and Indians, are pissed with him. And the thing he did? … … he openly labelled the Chinese and Indians as “penumpang”. By the way, did he also ask us to “balik tong-san”?
He has refused to apologise for what he said. He said… “Why should I apologise? I didn’t do anything wrong. Those who do wrong should apologise but I haven’t don’t anything”
Ya’ know, I think all us Chinese and Indians should just let this fella go… for now. Why do we need to get so hyped up about something we all know will never see the justice in this country? And by the way, he does have a point when he said he didn’t do anything wrong. Since when calling Chinese and Indians “pendatangs” is an offence in this country?
I know, it’s something that can be rather difficult to stomach. But think about it… did what he say cause your “char kuey teow” to be less tasty? Did what he say cause your wallet to be a little lighter? Did what he say give you sleepless nights? Did it severely affect your life?
Perhaps it did raise your blood pressure a bit but I am sure the pressure is all normal now. If it’s not, it might that “char kuey teow” you had, too much cholesterol. And it still tasted very good by the way, right?
So, let’s focus on the bigger picture, on things yet to come. Let us not be upset but channel our energy on more important things like the Auditors General report which (again) showed unworldly wastages. Let us focus on how to deal with inflation, which the reduction of petrol price didn’t really help at all.
Let us not also forget what Zulkifli Nordin, what that PKR (yes… PKR) MP did at the Bar Council forum.
But above all, let us just wait and see how Project 916 unfolds and do not react in any manner which might jeopardise it.
