Attack On A Former PM -Where Are We Heading?
Have we descended so low in our dirty politicking that we have not provided sufficient security to not only a former PM but a world statesman? How could this have happened? It is imperative that in a true democracy, the type that we claim and we preach, that a former head of government is afforded all necessary comforts and security befitting his status. There are no two ways about it.
This is a disgraceful act and that shame will smear the government as well. Pak Lah had better come out with a strong statement fast, and match that with appropriate action. We are not the Congo or some unlawful desolate outpost at the far end of the world. If we are to be considered as part of the civilised comity of nations then we should consistently act that way.
