Reading through the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the beating of Anwar by the police, posted in RPK’s Malaysia Today dated July 16th 2008, makes me boiled in anger. I just could not understand how a person like Rahim Noor (former IGP) himself, can take the law into his own hands, to beat a handcuff and blindfold person senseless. Islam does not teach us this. In fact, Islam teaches us to be compassionate to others, even if the person is a staunch enemy, while he is in custody.
What Rahim Noor did to Anwar is unforgivable, and he deserves the punishment meted upon him, and be labeled an ex-convict forever. He will again be called to answer his deeds and misdeeds in the hereafter, where he will not have the privilege of a lawyer. And please remember, the wrath from God is unbearable. I strongly advice that Rahim seeks forgiveness from Anwar, before it is too late. And I am sure Anwar being human, will forgive him.
Today, we once again see Anwar being treated like a criminal by the authorities. Threat of arrest is being hauled at him. The police in particular has little regards as to who Anwar was or is now. If they do not recognized him as the ex DPM, that is quite understandable, because certain members of the police force are themselves engulfed in corruption, rape, assault and even murder.
It appears also that the mainstream media today is having a gala time reporting about the Anwar’s case. The news reporting hits front pages and written in bold, in almost every mainstream media. Certainly, the sudden attention given to Anwar, I would say, makes him the most popular person today .
I have also read somewhere of a senior police officer today, who was himself involved in assaulting RPK sometime ago, and despite a report being launch against the officer, action has yet to be taken. So what does one expect of police officers today……sympathy and kindness……no way.
