Are we a caring and a humane society.....I wonder sometime!
And this is one of the many Malaysians hedonistic traits that will eventually forced this country to be loathed and hated further by the rest of the international community is our.
I am beginning to hate this system myself for appearing to be uncaring, and while fighting among each other for power we have forgotten what it is like to be caring and forgiving.
Hundreds of helpless dogs have been dumped into one of the many deserted mangrove and swampy islands near Pulau Ketam, in Klang read more here, and these canine species have to fend for themselves to live in this harsh and cruel environment for dogs and yet the elitist and uppity Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has yet to take action, or the government has yet to take action.
We must not only take preventive measures to show to the world that we are not involved, among other things, in human trafficking but we must also demonstrate to the world that we are also a caring society where we also take care of our animal friends.
Islam, for example, requires all living things to be protected, Islam also requires the umah to care for the planet. I am sure other religions also require to do the same.
Yet, the plight of our canine species on a mangrove island near Pulau Ketam has not been taken notice while we are busy with our stimulus package, economic recovery, and for our quest to acquire more. I hope our OneMalaysia concept also encompasses our affinity with other living things and the preservation of our environment!!
I urge the government to pause for a moment and someone has to address the problem of our animal friends.
We all should get rid of our proverbial blinker and try to imagine we are one of those poor puppies about to be eaten by other adult aggressive dogs. Until then and if we cannot resolve the fate of our own stranded on this mangrove swampy island, we have to stop imagining we are caring society. We must stop lying to ourselves that we are decent and humble human being when we cannot even save our animal friends.
P.S. Please refrain from sending nasty comments for this posting, please don't! Think of the poor animal!
