Yes, my friends, if you are using a wheelchair, know that it is God’s punishment. Persatuan Orang-Orang Cacat Anggota Malaysia (POCAM) President Dr. Tiun Ling Ta alerted me to this piece of news published in the New Straits Times.
An angry Badruddin shouted back at Karpal. “You are no better. Calling us (BN MPs) animals… you insult people. Now you are sitting in a wheel chair. God has punished you.”
NST Online -October 23, 2007: Karpal: Lawyer wrote part of judgment for civil suit
Perhaps it is also God’s punishment to the rakyat that we have such an insensitive and idiotic representative in the Parliament. I would like to remind MP for Jerai Datuk Badruddin Amiruldin that wheelchair users are among the people he is representing too. I do not care whether that insult was directed specifically at Karpal Singh. That very statement alone reeks of discrimination and is an insult to all wheelchair users in Malaysia and the world. MORON!
