Malaysians upset over Prime Minister’s visit to family grave
Malaysians are upset over the double standard for Prime Minister because he was allowed to visit the grave of his parent’s.
The outrage comes after a previous incident a man had been fine for doing the same act.
On July 21, a man in Negeri Sembilan was fine RM 2,000 for visiting a graveyard during Aidiladha. The 21-year-old man was with his niece and nephew.
The National Security Council (MKN) has come to the defense of the Prime Minister saying there is no particular ban to visit graves.
MKN Director-General Datuk Rodzi Md Saad also said that Ismail Sabri did not violate any standard operating procedures (SOP).
He said, “I don’t think any issue arose because those present wore face masks and observed physical distancing.”
On Facebook, countless Malaysians commented that SOP only apply for commoners and not people of high status.
One user by the name Yunus Yanan said, “The SOP does not apply for VIPs, celebrities, influencers, public figures, famous ustaz and even our celebrated hero Mr. DG himself.”
He added, “I say again, this SOPs only for MARHAENS (a socialistic political ideology).”
Cming Sin also commented, before that everything is wrong, but when a VVIP has done it, nobody is at fault even breaking the law a few times?
