Salam Aidilfitri everyone! Alhamdulillah we are able to celebrate Eid Mubarak in peace and harmony despite the few glitches we hear on the news everyday; annual road accidents and the recent killing and shooting spree that saddened most of us. I believe that Malaysia is still a safe country to live in because the police and army forces are doing whatever they can to help curb these threats. It has become a trend among the criminals to shoot and kill the citizens nowadays; back then it was a trend to rape and kill women or splash acidic liquid to road users, do you guys and girls realize this?
I seriously think that the Immigration Department, Police and Army force should be stricter in enforcing the laws at our borders and gateways to Malaysia. This is based on my visits to the national borders in Pengkalan Hulu, Perak. We had no passports at all and we did not sign up for any papers at the Immigration centers but we managed to pass the checkpoint just by lifting our hands, nod our heads and smile to both Malaysia and Thailand officers. My mother was driving at that time and of course, that happened approximately 10 years ago. I would like to highlight on how easy it was ten years ago for us to go through the national borders without proper checking and this may be one of the causes for the smuggling of weapons. Well I seriously hope that the government takes precautionary measures to stop and curb this incidents from becoming epidemic. The world we are living is getting scary and dreary; look at what happened in Syria, Palestine, Egypt and many other parts of the world and that is why I would like to dedicate this blog post for those who had lost their family members in the recent killing, rally and road accidents this festive season all over the world. My heart goes out to them and I pray that their soul rest in peace insyaallah.
Have a great Eid Mubarak everyone, but please consider those who are suffering while we are happily celebrating. Staying modest in this holy month is the best and noble thing to do; take care and God bless :)
