Have We Lost Our Rights To Earn A Decent Living?


I have been following with interest on the case of Jawi against Nik Raina Abdul Aziz, an employee of Borders Malaysia.

Read Border’s press statement here. 

There are three lessons here, at least to my mind:

  1. You have to know what you are selling knowing that there might be Power That Be out there are just waiting to make you a stellar example.
  2. You have to know what you are selling knowing that there might be Power That Be out there are just waiting to make you a stellar example.
  3. You have to know what you are selling knowing that there might be Power That Be out there are just waiting to make you a stellar example.

There you go, three lessons. Why three? Cause I do not feel like cut-and-paste more than that.

An observation from a Malaysian – made, born and bred in Malaysia (and by saying that does not mean I am less of a Malaysian or Melayu or a Muslim), Malaysians are fantastic at:

  • creating, charting, developing SOPs, policies & procedures but fail to make it known to the public. Syok sendiri banyak.
  • If and when SOP is ready, do you think you can get them through the public websites? Noo…….hell, you really have to gadai (pawn) your life to get a  copy.
  • Now, try writing to the Power That Be (whoever la) to seek for an appointment to get a clearer picture of the policies. Do you think you will get one, let alone a clear response? I think it is easier to pull out teeth from the Abominable Snowman than obtaining one.
  • Some Power That Be choose their cases. I have no idea why they do that. A year ago, I lodged a takfir case with JAIS. It was a clear cut case but until now they are “still studying the case”.

Think I digressed too far from the blog title. Back to Nik Raina, hope she will be strong in facing this charges. There are so many people who are behind you. Your organization is with you. Keep your chin up.
