Shameful thuggish behaviour!
IT'S shameful! We don't have to agree with each other in politics but confrontation is surely not the way. More so, within the Parliament compound and even more shameful, how can the security guards be standing idly when a Member of Parliament - a disabled MP in a wheelchair - is mobbed and confronted by some 22 people, claiming to be Umno Youth members, The Star Online reported. No one is his right mind can condone such thuggish behaviour.
Umno Youth has every right to be angry with Karpal Singh's claim that two live bullets were sent to him by the movement. As a seasoned lawyer, he should know better. He must produce evidence. You don't have to be a first year law student to know that. He also has to watch his offensive language. Umno Youth has given him 24 hours to produce proof. But to harass a lawmaker, who is entering Parliament, to perform his duties is certainly a criminal offence. The police must step in and arrest these hooligans. I think Malaysians who have watched the Bollywood movie "Singh is King" would have realised that Mafia-like characters like the Don and gangsters were not condoned. See Ktemoc and Rocky Bru for their views. How low should our politics sink?
