The masses can think, they can differentiate a race horse from a mule.
This was posted by one of my classmates on our class page. To good to just keep it for my classmates.
When I saw so many people came to show their last respect to Tok Guru
it crossed in my mind that somebody is going to be jealous. Of course that
somebody has to be of great stature, not any ordinary mortal. Yes, that
person is Tun M. Now we can see this in writing.
Why not we learn to respect the feelings of the ordinary person. They came
on their own free will. There were no TV presentations or writings by great
journalists urging them to do so. The masses can think, they can differentiate
a race horse from a mule.
In our world now, integrity and honesty are rare commodities. That the masses
show so much respect for a person having these, further highlight the fact. A
person may think he is great, can move RM millions at his finger tips, can make
and unmake people, his children are billionaires, but money cannot buy love.
The people love whom they want, not swayed by mass media or RM.
True, Kelantan is a backward state lagging in physical development. But this was the
making of the fed govn. In spite of these deprivations, Tok Guru showed the rare
commodities, did not succumb to pressure and temptations. This is what the
people see, the quality of character and not the glitter of money. Some Kelantanese
are at the forefront of the nation, in all spheres of endeavor. The lack of physical
development is made up by human development.
If people can still learn, even at a late stage of their life, why not draw some
inferences from this. Honesty and integrity are valued more than money, esp
of the dishonest kind. When they cross the line to the other side, it will be even
more obvious. By then it will be too late.
