I was at the Tung Shin hospital compound, like hundreds of others, trying to find a dry spot and to avoid the incessant and hostile tear gas attacks by the FRU. Like these hundreds, I was horrified when the FRU shot tear gas canisters into the hospital compound. The effect was felt even at the main entrance of the hospital.
Why did the KL Police Chief, IGP, Health Minister, MCA President & PM Najib deny any attack was ever launched into the hospital compound?
Health Minister even suggested these canisters were swept by gushing wind into the area. There was plenty of water and rain but not wind. Lucky for us! If not the effect of tear gas would have affected even more people.
Who are the 3 idiots in this situation?
(3 idiots is a 2009 Indian comedy film directed by Rajkumar Hirani, with a screenplay by Abhijat Joshi, and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. It was loosely adapted from the novel Five Point Someone by Chetan Bhagat. 3 Idiots stars Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Kareena Kapoor, Omi Vaidya, Parikshit Sahni and Boman Irani. Upon release, the film broke all opening box office records in India. It was the highest-grossing film in its opening weekend in India and has the highest opening day collections for a Bollywood film.)
1st = the police chief who denied there was any attack ever on the hospital compound.
2nd = the Health Minister Liow Tiong Lai who held a press conference with the Tung Shin board chairman to deny there was any attack. He made the statement and then made a u-turn when was told of photographic and video evidence and live witnesses. Now, he said he was merely parroting the board's suggestion. Worse, 11 doctors are prepared to file an affidavit. We can understand their stand.
3rd = MCA President Chua Soi Lek who suggested that the police shot the tear gas to protect the patients. Should I say more?
Why can't the government just apologize for the excessive use of force especially in the case of Tung Shin?
Is being unreasonable the order of the day?
The way things go, it is better for Barisan to hold the elections in 2013.
