Mentality
When I was small, I could hardly sense any dispute or problems vis-a-vis the relationship between the authorities and the citizens of Malaysia. To this date, after a series of reports in the media about the lack of professionalism of our police force, my train of thoughts begins to wonder, what are the main causes and why such attitude occurs in our beloved country? I was not surprised to read the headline on today's newspaper, 'a uniformed woman was captured on a cellular phone video ordering a naked female Chinese national to do ear squats'. However, as a sensible Malaysian it is definitely a shameful news that I have to bear from now on and I believe such thing will occur in the future eventhough a special commission would be set up to investigate the matter because in my point of view, this is a problem of mentality, a problem that requires deep analysis from the person himself. In Islam, God said He can't change one's behaviour unless the latter changes on his own. Again, Jim Rohn (America's foremost business philosopher) once said, "You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of." This applies crucially in this case. Again in Islam, we have been thought how our Prophet Muhammad (God bless) treats the prisoners of war with tenderness and respect on the justification of they are also human beings who have their own rights in this world. Yes, it is proven in the world's history until now how POWER may make one's responsibility as a khalifah blinded by greed and ego. For those who appreciate the wise thinking in mind, they know what is good and what is bad.

Dear authorities, don't be blinded by the power to easily use it for your own self satisfaction and benefit. It is sad but undeniable, one's flaw reflects the flaw of the whole people.

'If a nation follows a blind man, both will fall into the pit'
