WE finally have to accept the fact that the Emergency Medical Response Service (EMRS) member from the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department, Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim has left us for good after 20 days of suffering from serious injuries.

He sustained serious injuries after allegedly being assaulted by a group of rioters while he was on duty during the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman temple riot on 27 November in USJ 25. He suffered broken ribs and internal injuries which caused organ failures.

Despite being treated round the clock by six medical specialists, three paramedics and eight nurses, he took his last breath last night at 9.41 p.m.

Truly, what transpired on Muhammad Adib would definitely happen when we are weak in overcoming racial tensions which is getting worrying in recent days.

Everyone would become sensitive if it involves their race and religion. Why is it that we managed to control the situation all these while but fail to do so this time?

The answer is easy.

We now have rude and uncouth political leaders.

We have political leaders who tried to be the champion for the people but were not together with the people in whole.

We have political leaders who hated prevention acts such as SOSMA, POCA and POTA.

We have political leaders who wanted to abolish death sentence.

We have political leaders who are dogmatic in fighting for the fate of the criminals and not those of the victims!

In other words, we have leaders who were willing to play with the emotions of their followers and not lead them towards a united Malaysia.

Thus, this is the ‘result’ we get – the death of an innocent man.

Truthfully, if we continue to ‘tolerate’ such leaders, continue to close an eye on their behaviours, do not be surprised if more people will receive the same fate as Muhammad Adib.

This is not a warning nor a threat. This is the reality we need to face and overcome wisely if we do not wish what hit Muhammad Adib to repeat itself. Malaysia was well famed for the manners and courtesy.

Ask yourself, if this what you really want?  – MalaysiaGazette
