Above is a tweeter message by PAS’s leader, Datuk Seri Ir. Nizar Jamaluddin regarding the missing MH370.
He made fun of the tragedy by saying that, “a new bermuda triangle has been discovered in Vietnam waters”.
Can’t he understand that people should not make a joke of a tragedy?
What kind of leader is he when he did not care about other people’s feelings?
Nizar Jamaluddin, as a former Chief Minister of Perak and a political leader should be behave well, understand the difficult situation of the missing MH370, respect other people’s feelings and understand their suffering.
I cannot imagine what kind of government can the opposition parties offer when this is an example of one of their senior leaders.
The opposition leaders especially PKR leader, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim always preach about good governance.
They and their supporters always justify their illegal actions such as ‘BLACKOUT 505’ illegal demonstration as heroic actions partly because they claim that the Malaysian government does not practise good governance.
And of course they proudly claim that they practise good governance in Selangor and Pulau Pinang even if only their supporters believe their words.
Good governance is too important for them that some of Pakatan’s Muslim supporters feel that good governance practice is more important than Article 3(1) and Article 11(4) of the Federal Constitution.
I wonder what are the good governance practices that they are so proud of?
Good governance à la PKR. The image looks so messy as the situation in PKR.
What kind of good governance is this?
The PKR leaders are fighting openly with each other like small children fighting for toys.
May be they should take a break and listen to what Michael Jackson said in his song, ‘Man In The Mirror’:
“If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change” – Michael Jackson (Man In The Mirror).
