Why didn’t the non-Malay reporter simply rephrase her supposedly “tough question” in BM when asked to do so by the PAS minister?
How is a request by the minister for Minderjeet Kaur to frame her question in BM (instead of using English) to be regarded as hindering the journalist from doing her job? My response to the headlines below.
Clutching pearls, expecting to be treated with kid gloves
You’d have thought that reporters would be able to cope with tough or stressful assignments. It comes with the territory, no?
Can’t this FMT reporter handle even a little “badgering”? – see headline below.
As I recall, the Dapsters love to say ‘Can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen’. But of course, they practise double standards — one rule for themselves and their cohorts, another for the pro-establishment people.
It must be deja vu for the PAS leadership to find themselves the targets of such over-the-top accusations by the non Malays.
Now the PAS ministers are accused of making a “personal attack” on the reporter.
Previously another PAS deputy minister Zawawi Salleh had been accused of “hate speech” by the DAP – see below – and perpetrating “hostile attacks against Christianity”.
Looking at the reactions (below) to the incident, i.e. allegations that PAS bullied the reporter, the pearl clutchers appear to think that not speaking BM or refusal to speak BM is a non issue.
