Do you remember the Malaysian Accountancy student Ashraf Haziq Rosli who was robbed of his bicycle, had his jaw broken and his personal belongings stolen by rioting UK delinquents in the London Riots last year?
Well, his parents are now in the news as well where they rightly condemn the way able bodied jobless delinquents in the UK are given welfare funds by the British Government from tax money paid by other hardworking Brits.
Such a system naturally will create more useless parasites sucking off the blood of the responsible ones working their butt off but being victimized by a flawed system of government.
The British who were once the Colonial Masters of so many countries in the world including our own country which was once called British Malaya seem to have failed to guide and nurture their own citizens as a result of giving too much face to those who endlessly demand this and that right on the pretext of exercising their democratic rights?
Well, the British are now learning that giving too much leeway in the name of the very democracy they seem to be so fixated upon can swing around and bite them in their sorry pompous British aristocratic butts as we all saw take place in the London riots recently!
Pity that the English seem to have forgotten to put it to practice in their own country and which has resulted in the spawning of a new breed of vicious, heartless gangs of thugs and lawless fiends who wreaked havoc, committed brazen daylight thievery and arson right before a helpless force of British police who were shackled by the very laws of their own country!
Today, the British media have published the mugshots of these pampered thugs who grew fat feeding on the blood, sweat and tears of the hardworking others in the British United Kingdom!
Learn from this episode O Malaysia and do not fall victim to the same anarchy that will take place if we give in to the demands of the ones here in Malaysia demanding this and that under the guise of freedom!
I for one, wish to see our Royal Malaysian Police Force be more strict and forceful in dealing with the constantly demonstrating wreaking havoc anarchists we have today in the likes of the anti-establishment parasites in the nation.
Learn from the British catastrophe O PDRM! Do not let this country be burned to the ground by your indecisiveness caused by the bloody politicians who will sell their own mothers to advance their never ending causes and agendas to seize power!
You have the authority vested in you by this country’s Parliament! Use it!!!
Failure to do so will see the weirdos in this country run riot at will!
Damn them if they do!
I’d rather see them in jail than to see what took place in England take place here!
‘The system in Britain makes people lazy. In Malaysia, if you want to earn money, you have to work. And if you want to earn more money, you have to study hard.
‘In Britain, people who work pay tax and it goes to people who do no work. I don’t understand that.’
Impact: Victim Ashraf Rossli has been left psychologically scarred by the robbery in East London
The 50-year-old said the audacious robbery in East London had left a psychological scar on his son.
‘Now, when he sees a crowd of people coming towards him in the street, he will cross the road and walk on the other side,’ he said.
‘He is still affected by what happened and I don’t know how long that will stay with him. Maybe for a long time.’
The video footage of Ashraf’s ordeal – captured on a witness’s mobile phone – was seen around the world and shamed Britain.
It showed the accountancy student, bloodied and dazed after being punched and robbed of his bicycle, hauled to his feet by two men who make as if to help him.
In doing so they stole a games console and games worth £500 from his rucksack.
On Friday, 22-year-olds John Kafunda, of Ilford, and Reece Donovan, of Romford, were convicted at Wood Green Crown Court of violent disorder, robbery and later burgling a Tesco store.
At an earlier trial, 17-year-old Beau Isagba was found guilty of punching and breaking Ashraf’s jaw during the initial bicycle theft.
It was the revelation that Isagba was jobless and on benefits that stunned Mr Rossli.
Following the attack on August 8, Ashraf’s parents were shown around London by MPs and dignitaries.

Their experience convinced them that Britain was a friendly and fundamentally decent country – but also left them with a worrying impression that the flames of the unrest may have been fanned by a system that overindulges troublemakers and the workshy.
‘This kind of system is not good,’ said Mr Rossli, whose only trip outside Malaysia before the attack on his son was a tour of duty in Bosnia in the Nineties.
‘I believe if you are physically well, if there is nothing wrong with you, you should work. They shouldn’t give money to people who can work but don’t.
‘You should only give this money to the right people – people who are disabled, people who are ill, people who are in hardship. But not to people who are well and can work, but choose not to.’
Asked what he thought of the youths who attacked his son, Mr Rossli said: ‘It is up to parents to raise their children. Children need to be taught civic responsibility and discipline as they grow up.’

And he was also critical of the police. ‘The police in Malaysia would have taken action sooner,’ he said.
‘Your police let it grow and grow until it was out of control. I don’t understand why people were allowed to run riot and rob in that way.
‘Here in Malaysia the police can catch you and grab you if you do something wrong. But in Britain it seems that you cannot.’
Malaysia’s government is known for being authoritarian, but Mr Rossli said: ‘After this happened, people asked Ashraf why he went outside when there were riots and he replied, “Because in Malaysia we are always free to walk outside”.
‘We have a tough government in Malaysia, but when something like this happens, they take action. They don’t let it get out of control. The streets are safe.’

Ashraf’s ordeal brought him face-to-face with youths who – while not distant from him in age – could not have been more different in attitudes and values.
They were looting, burning and thieving. Ashraf, by contrast, had been innocently riding his bicycle through Barkingside to a friend’s house to share a meal to mark the end of a Muslim fasting period.
An exemplary student who scored straight As in his high school exams, Ashraf had been in London for just a month after winning a Malaysian government scholarship to study accountancy at Kaplan International College in Islington.
The scholarship covered the £60,000 cost of his two-year course, which would have been impossible for his parents to fund.
In return, he must work for the Malaysian government for five years on his return, lecturing young accountancy students.
Ashraf’s family live in a simple three-room apartment in Kuala Lumpur’s Ampang district, half an hour’s drive from the grandparents’ home where they gathered yesterday. Their home is worth £30,000.
Grandfather Abu Mansor Bin Mohammad Noh, 79, who grew up when Malaysia was under British rule, said he was shocked to hear Ashraf had been attacked so soon after arriving in London.
But he believed his grandson should stay in the UK. ‘I still think England is a good place and I am proud of my grandson for earning the opportunity to study there. He is the first person in my family to study abroad,’ he said.
‘What happened to Ashraf doesn’t make me feel bad towards Britain. It is just a certain kind of person who does these things.
