The Sun. I know it seems like nothing la but when I read it I almost swelled up with emotion and felt sooo good to be Malaysian. This has to do with the Teresa Kok/turn down the volume of the mosque/ISA arrest thingamajig...
Bahrudin Maskor, 47, the muezzin of the mosque, was seen entering the Dang Wangi District Police headquarters at 1.30pm and completed giving his statement two hours later.
Bahrudin told reporters that he had been called up to give a statement to the police concerning the contents of the petition sent by 100 residents of the area several months ago.
"In the petition, the residents wanted the volume for the subuh azan to be reduced and the 'subuh' ceramah on Saturday and Sunday not to use the loud speaker. We complied with their request," he said.
The last sentence in the above story was what struck me. Here was this Muezzin of a mosque, listening, understanding and accepting a request from his 'neighbours'. He apparently did not cry Infidel! Traitor! Pendatang! Nor did he lodge police reports and demand ISA imprisonment for the flers who came to discuss something of mutual interest with him. Encik Bahrudin Maskor, I salute you as a true Malaysian!!!
Now, I don't know about you but if it is as reported in the article I think this Bahrudin deserves a medal. Before they make him see the "error" of his ways and return him to the "true" path.
