Shall we continue to live in a prolonged state of denial or take necessary action?
Shall we do it now or wait till our Malaysia gains greater international recognition and prominence for the wrong reasons?
Nigerian scam-kings and drug lords are already calling Malaysia home. Some areas in Kuala Lumpur now appears more like African, Burmese, Bangladeshi settlements complete with restaurants, convenience stores etc run by visiting foreign students, construction workers and house helpers. These foreign controlled areas are right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Just take a slow drive around areas behind Masjid Jamek... along Jalan Hang Lekir, Jalan Tun HS Lee, Petaling Street and Leboh Pudu right up to Puduraya. Don't be perplexed if you come across countless shops/restaurants/merchants with signboards in foreign languages. The few in Bahasa Malaysia or English comes with heavy undertones from Myanmar(Burma) and or Bangladesh.
The above video about child trafficking-prostitution is just some of the things which are happening right under our nose and, as an 'expert' opines in the recording, we are certainly living in denial and happy with the reactive mode that everything around us revolves.
The first question that pops up in our mind is - What are our authorities doing?
The tendency would be to blame the police but what is the role of the local authorities to prevent such menaces in our society?
Why is it that Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur and a host of other local authorities appear absolutely powerless to ensure a conducive living environment for us Malaysians?
If it it because of CORRUPTION, we are certainly doomed.
I hope not all of our law enforcers have become slaves of syndicates themselves.
Btw, has anyone congratulated the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission for a job well done in sniffing out a well entrenched syndicate in the Royal Malaysian Customs Department?
Well done SPRM! You guys should also consider taking a break in one of those 'well protected' health SPAs or a Sunday drive along Leboh Pudu for inspiration.
