MALACCA: Noramfaizul Mohd Nor, the BernamaTV cameraman killed in Somalia last month, will be the first recipient of the state award for bravery, the Bintang Gagah Perkasa in conjunction with the 73rd birthday of Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob tomorrow. The award was created in 1978.
First my apologies to the family of Noramfaizul Mohd Nor. I mean no disrespect to him or to his family….but I would like to ask the Malacca state government this : How are the recipient of this Bintang Gagah Perkasa chosen? I presume it would be for bravery. Now tell me when did Noramfaizul showed any bravery?
When he joined Bernama? No he did not.
When he chose to accompany Putera 1Malaysia Club to Somalia? No he did not.
Did he show any bravery from the time he was hit by sniper fire to the time of his death? I do not think he had time to do so.
So pray tell me when did Noramfaizul showed any bravery to deserve this Bintang Gagah Perkasa?
This award is an insult to Noramfaizul because all it does is to glorify his death as an act of bravery when his death was in fact totally unnecessary.
- It is height of irresponsibility and folly for Putera 1Malaysia Club to send Noramfaizul into Somalia without proper training and equipment.
- Noramfaizul was not protected with even a bullet-proof vest or helmet.
- The vehicle carrying Noramfaizul did not carry any signage identifying them as Media.
Noramfaizul’s death was totally unnecessary and the fault lies totally with 1Malaysia Putera Club…and they think bestowing the Bintang Gagah Perkasa posthumously on Noramfaizul will make him a hero and give credit to 1Malaysia Putera Club for giving Noramfaizul the opportunity to die a Hero?
No it does not make Noramfaizul into a hero nor must we allow this occasion to overshadow the need for 1Malaysia Putera Club to take full responsibility for what happened!
The truth is simply this: Noramfaizul died for no other reason then the fact that an irresponsible and self serving so called aid agency in the form of 1Malaysia Putera Club wanted to use Noramfaizul's expertise as a cameraman to further the political career of its president Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim.Full stop!
Azeez if you are prepared to take praise as it come after your return from that Gaza trip (see video below) ...then also take responsibility for what you do
wrong - as in the death of Noramfaizul in Somalia! You owe Noramfaizul and his family nothing less and nothing more!
In closing I once again ask for forgiveness from the family of Noramfaizul if by the posting of this article I have somehow over shadowed any memories he has left behind of his life. Maaf.
In the first place how on earth can this keling be accepted as umno member??...unless the letter M is for mamak!ReplyDelete
Simple this azeez is just another moron who is always after publicity and of course if he made blunder just like any other umno member they are sure to be covered by all means.
Is this any different from the hundreds of wretched workers - citizens and foreigners - who get killed in the course of work? As for children, you may remember the "National Service" victims. Or those at the (Perak?) "camp" - probably brainwashing - who got killed when the pedestrian bridge they were on collapsed. It is "not our culture" to punished anyone in aythority. That would bring disunity - I will refrain from using the equivalent religious nomenclature. If there is an outcry, then, a "contractor" must take the rap. The only reaction programmed into us as feudal serfs is "Siapa dia," meaning whether the victims were from VIP families.ReplyDelete
