[UTUSAN}- MERSING 15 Jan. – Seorang lelaki warga emas bersama-sama keluarganya nyaris maut apabila kenderaan dipandunya terbabas dalam gaung di Kilometer 16 Jalan Jemaluang-Mersing, dekat sini awal pagi ini.

Dalam kejadian kira-kira pukul 2.30 pagi berdekatan Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP) Mersing, kereta dipandu Swee Ah Pang, 60, hilang kawalan apabila berlaku tanah runtuh secara tiba-tiba semasa melalui jalan berkenaan.

To Put A child In Danger Is A Violation To The Rights Of The Child!

Credit to blog Cucu Tok selampit.

A video of a father ‘helping’ his young son to cross a dangerous broken bridge over a river in Pahang went viral on the internet, followed by multiple criticism towards the government!

What surprises me is that the video was recorded by the boy’s mother, with a caption implying as if that is the only way for him to go to school when there are safer alternative routes other than the broken bridge, and there are even boats provided when the routes are flooded!

When the ADUN of Jelai, YB Wan Rosdy visited the father to discuss over the matter, the latter apologised for the video.

It was proven that the construction of a new bridge was already scheduled to be started this month.

Now what are the parents trying to prove by doing such a foolish and dangerous act? 

Does neither the father nor the mother care about the child’s safety?

The parents had violated the right of their child by putting him in danger.

Children must be protected and not put in danger for what ever reason what more, unnecessarily as what happened in this case.

Will those human rights lawyers say something about this?

Breaking News: Upside-Down Flag At Session/Magistrate Court of Segamat!

The district of Segamat flag was flown upside down in front of the Session/Magistrate Court of Segamat, 19th Dec, 2017.

Driving past the Session/Magistrate Court of Segamat earlier today, I was shocked to see another district flag being flown upside-down!

Please read:

  2. Flag Of Muar Flown Upside-Down At Sime Darby Property’s Bandar Universiti Pagoh
  3. Mistakes In Designs Of Vertical Flags Of Johor

This time it is the Segamat district flag which was flown upside-down in the area of the government building.

The worst thing is, the upside-down flag was flown in front of the court itself!

The district of Segamat’s flag bears a crescent and star as symbols representing the Sultan of Johor and the religion of Islam.

Hence, flying the flag upside-down is a sign of disrespect not only to the district of Segamat, but also to the religion of Islam, the Sultan of Johor and the state of Johor.

I am very sad that such grave mistake regarding such a serious matter happens in the area of a court building.

It is as if the government authority does not bother to make sure that its staffs understand how to fly flags in the proper manner and follow the flag protocols.

This is a very serious matter and I’m urging the authorities to be more serious about flag protocols.
