A breath of fresh air in Najib and a serious and nagging problems need to be resolved.

Remember Nirmala abuser/employer Yim Pek Ha, smiling away without a sign of remorse?


Remember Nirmala Bonat! She just wants to make a life for herself but she was abused!



I am referring to the tsunami of good reform and goodwill that came about when Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak took over as the country's sixth prime minister.
His speech at the recent Umno assembly saw many old timers shedding tears of joy and the young ones speechless listening in awe a man who should have been our fifth prime minister instead of the dud Abdullah Badawi.
"When Dollah gave his presidential speech when he was the PM people just fall asleep and walked away uninspired. Can be said as (Tun) Mahathir Mohamad's biggest miscalculation in taking him as his successor. Hopefully, and I am sure, Najib will repair the damaged done by Dollah. Under Dollah five states went to the opposition, and under Dollah people still trying to understand what is Islam Hadhari!," said a veteran politician from Malacca.
This politician who is known for his dexterity with "pantun" said he was sure if Najib had been the prime minister instead of Dollah then things in the country would have had a different outcome.
On other subject, yes, it is true Indonesia and Malaysia is inseparable as a nation and this was shown by the fact that Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will make Malaysia as his first country of visit after his re-election.
On a more emotional ties, another sad episode of an Indonesian maid being abused in Klang that was reported by the New Straits Times today, October 21st.
An Indonesian maid was found chained, badly injured and starved by her employers. This happened when a worker followed a stench leading to a room and the worker decided to break open the door and found the maid in a deplorable condition beyond imagination.
How can this be allowed to happen? After another Indonesian maid, remember Nirmala Bonat, was scarred with hot iron and abused and beaten so badly that one would have thought that stiff sentence that was imposed on her employer would have act as a stiff deterrent to future abuses? Apparently this is not the case.
Now that I know another Indonesian maid was being severely abused I would like the law be very very strict in sentencing these animals when it comes to court and that the case be placed on the front page of our major newspapers to let people know that we are taking this matter of maid abuses very seriously.
If I am an Indonesian now reading about another abuse of my compatriot by bad Malaysian employers I would also very, very angry.
For this new case of maid abuse in Klang I implore the authority to impose a deterrent, a very serious one that will make prospective maid abusers to think twice before chaining, starving and beating another fellow human being.

Those who treated other people like animals are also animals.
However , compare with what we have to suffer with what those Indonesians did to us is untolerable. The loss we have to bear when thousands of our maids ran away , what about the grieving wives when their husbands have been stole by these Indons, the Indons robbers and housebreakers and how many of our policemen died because of them?

When you have a maid you have unwittingly entered yourself into a contest. In the maid and master relationship you will find that the master wants to pay as little as possible and try to get as much work as possible out the maid. The maid on the other hand wants to get as much money as possible from the master and do as little work as possible.

When you are faced with a contest like this you are right to assume that the person who pays the piper calls the tune so to speak. But somtimes it helps if you use incentives instead of abuse. I have seen my neighbours use their maids to wash the car of the master and the lady of the house. The cars of the children and in-laws living are also washed by the maid. I hope that these people, who are all with at least a university degree, are using incentives to get the maid to wash their cars.

We all belong to one race- the human race.I know that this world is not fair. Otherwise I as a 65 years old man should have a maid to do my heavy jobs. But this does not mean that we must add to the unfairness. Never forget that you can in fact add to the fairness.Trust me your life will be that much easier with your maid if you do from time to time inject a little kindness. Many will not agree but I think that at least 80% of the maids will respond positively.

In many cases they are necessary. You cannot live with them you cannot live without them. Good Luck. Ramalx

Anonymous,
You sound like one of them and believe in taking the law into your own hand.

This country has law to deal with such problems.People who mistreated their maids are sick in the head and should be banned from employing one.

I am glad in Sabah we don't have such nasty people.

I have written a number of articles on this subject in the past because I feel strongly about abuse of any kind against the weak and defenceless, not only human but also animals.

I agree with Pasquale, the court should impose the most severe punishment.

This kind of act brings shame to the nation.Singapore has dealt with it successfully by imposing severe punishment.

Anonymous, you really want to compare people who have better upbringing / class and yet abuse maids, to the illegal foreigner robbers who are from 3rd world? That's not a fair comparison to make. I believe animals who abuse maids should be hung.

Agree absolutely. Period. Why then you have to justify with a sort of revengeful statement to justify any inhumane act. Do not try to emphatize with animal, you sure be one.

Okay I have a big problem here, the way I see it all of you are wrong to equate any inhumane act as equivalent to being like an animal. Pramodya Anantoer is also wrong to imply in human society there are animals, implying that there are bad people behaving like animals? So bad people are like animals?! The truth is animal ia a lot better than us actually, they live by how nature dictates them to behave! They do not kill or abuse their own kind. Of course we can argue they cannot reason like us human, but who are we to say and to draw such conclusion!
Bad people who abuse another human, and children are not behaving like animals as I said animal does not do that. Such bad people should be equated to being evil but not like animals.
I can say this much I have better animal friends as I do human.

People who treat their maids like Pek Ha did, certainly are of an unstable mind, suffering from some personality disorder - unable to control their anger and easily falls into fits of rage when contradicted. They should get some therapy before it becomes a tragedy.Unfortunately we are still not that mature a society to deal with this. Most are are not so smart enough to identify their problem and get help. How about an awareness campaign from the Msian Association of shrinks?

In 1957 the Malay government made a mistake of giving 2millions citize4nships or more to Chinese and Indian squatters and today they do not respect the social contract. Comment made by any Malay leader today reflects what and how ex-squatters have behave in this country! Do not fuck Pasquale just ask Anwar Ibrahim to help him do it to you!

Anonymous I agree with you. But two wrongs do not make one right. We should not make the same mistake by giving new citizenship to people who are coming here now form neighbouring countries for economic reasons. At the rate they are coming in I am afraid the there will be gender imbalance in the not too distant future.

We need level heads here. Malaysia does not suffer from natural calamities and let us not here create man-made one by our hasty decisions. Ramalx

In his posting yesterday, Lim remarked that “Pakatan Rakyat had suffered a prolonged and unceasing bout of loss of public confidence over the past eight months.”

He said the rakyat should look at the current Prime Minister’s leadership and Barisan government, which has had vast experience and was capable of developing the nation.

oleh kerana banyak negeri ada peruntukan hanya orang melayu aja boleh menjadi ketua menteri, maka LKS dah mula target untuk menjuarai dewan rakyat bukan negeri-negeri

I share your sentiments Pasquale about animals.

Animals don't hurt each other unless they are defending themselves or their kin.

Even animals are known to protect & love human beings. God is great.
