Recently during a rally organised  by several NGOs on Christmas, one of the leaders urged the public to attack a police station.

Datuk Azwanddin Hamzah Ariffin Abu Bakar had urged the public to resort to this violence if no action was taken following the death of fireman, Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.

Azwanddin, who is Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) president, has since been arrested by the police.

The rally was organised by NGO Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia (Geras).

While, I like many other Malaysians want to see justice for our fallen fireman, I certainly do not support such calls for this kind of violence.

This is totally ridiculous and could well lead to more people losing their lives and being seriously injured.

I urge the police to take stern action against these kind of people who are nothing but provocateurs of violence.

What are we going to achieve by attacking a police station?

Is that going to bring the late fireman back to life?

All I can gather from this, is that these kind of people only do and say such dumb things merely to gain some political mileage for themselves.

I appeal to all peace loving Malaysians out there not to be taken by such nonsense and stay clear of this kind of activity.

Apparently the rally was called for the resignation of two ministers - which is also something I don't really understand.

How can two ministers be responsible for the death of the fireman?

Just because they are Indian ministers, does that make them accountable for everything the community does?

In that case, every minister would have to resign everyday each time a Chinese, Malay or other criminal commits a crime right?
