Barisan Nasional leaders came out in full force to condemn the acts of extremism and violence by the arsonists who torched or inflicted damage on the Churches in Selangor.
A PIECE OF MY MIND joins the call of the leaders and the Police that action should be taken against the arsonists.
Malaysia is a country that boasts reputable level of global exports in electronics, seafood, fuel and oil palm. Malaysia is a nation that commands respect on being able to construct a strong bonding among the people in a multiracial model of society.
Our country is also an Economic force in the region, a modern and developed Islamic nation and a sports giant in various sports with the latest being 1Malaysia Lotus F1.
The list goes on and on but the feats and notable strengths of Malaysia's image were all destroyed by the arsonists and extremists.
Having said these, it was reported that the demonstrations were carried out peacefully and dispersed upon the request of the Police force.
The extremist acts were conducted by arsonists and those are not a result of the demonstrations. So let us be clear, professional and mature instead of politicizing every single issue like this particular page.
Judging from the pictures by the Press, the forensics and CSI officers were seen collecting evidences at the vicinity of the Churches.
Investigation reports should be made public to avoid exploitation of this matter as a political tool and action must be taken against the arsonists.
Barisan Nasional leaders have already reached out to those affected.
Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak allocated RM 500,000 to the Church while MCA rented Dewan Lee San Choon for those affected to carry out their Sunday mass.
Thank you, I say to you Najib and MCA. People First, Performance Now.
