if he was murdered, his parents/family have the right to decide the fate of his murderer/murderers.

in an islamic state, the perpetrators will sampai ajal too. because i hear his mother wants them dead.

errmmm… could it be it’s cos i’m a malaysian and i’m human?

yasmin said…
diana, no one has speculated anything here, yet you are saying, “don’t speculate”?

this is precisely what i cannot stand about this whole affair. some people in power are so defensive!

my mother and i were watching rtm news – a man with a

moustache said at great length that we should not suspect foul play before investigation results.

my mother said, “do they think we are 2-year olds?”

yes wahdi, but if this had happened to a member of your family, would you be as accepting? takdir is takdir, but in islam, if someone were murdered, his family decides the fate of his murderer.

salaam.

yasmin said…
amen to that, kamal.

in today’s the star, his parents were seeking help from the PM himself! good on them! god-willing, some changes are gonna come.

without a strong faith, the world is going crazy.

another sad incident, not related to this one but cruel as it is, search for Marwa Al-Sherbini.

As Shaykh Khalid Yasin said in one of his presentation, “humans, when their sense of morality becomes distorted, they do what animals don’t do.”

    You are absolutely right .Only GOD has the right to remove someone LIFE.With a strong faith in one’s religion whatever powers you hold does not give you the absolute power to extinguish someone life even to animals one’s must have the same respect.Well life is short anyway ,we are all transient.
