Framed!!!

I’m amazed, in this sacred and holy month of Ramadhan, some numbskulls have scant respect and think they can say what they like without first investigating nor provide ample proof. My poor wife-to-be got framed this morning on air and though the sms-es were not read by Syah Ibrahim, it is there for all to see on RIA‘s sms bulletin website. It all began when Syah played a Nasyid song, in which one of the lyrics to the song reminded us not to forget our daily prayers especially during this holy month. I then made a general remark through my sms about how true it is because I observed that some people who attend Iftar sessions tend to forget their responsibilities once the fast is broken and when they get lulled in the presence of good company. Well I did that before in the past so I know what I’m talking about.

Lo! Along came two responses that rebutted my sms: “SYAH BETUL KATA PM,BNYK YNG TAK SEMBAHYANG MAGHRIB KERANA NAK PERGI MAJLIS IFTAR TERMASUK TUNANG & FAMILY DIA YNG MAKAN DIRESTAURANT KELMARIN :ROAD RUNNER” (Syah, PM is right! Many people do not observe their Maghrib prayers due to Iftar sessions, including his fiancee who ate at the restaurant the other day : RoadRunner) and “PM SIBUK DGN ORG TAK SEMBAHYANG ? DIA HANTAR SPY SATU FAMILY MENGINTIP ORG MAKAN BERBUKA SAMA JUGALAH 10 KALI 5 TAK SEMBAHYANG NAK CAKAP ORG :ZIANA” (PM is concerned about people who do not pray? He sent one whole family to spy on people who broke their fast, which is the same as not praying, look who’s talking? : Ziana)

I cut and pasted the original sms-es in its original glory. See the similarities??? It’s from the same person, who just changed nicks out of convenience. Well in case you guys are wondering what that person was getting at, well last Saturday, Aida went to Geylang Serai with her family to do a spot of shopping for Hari Raya. Since they could not reach home on time, they decided to break their fast at Jeewa Restaurant. It so happened that a particular group of listeners were also there having their Iftar session with members of their website community.

These 2 messages were from the same person who changed nicks. And since this person knew abt my wife-to-be and her family’s presence the other day, it could only have come from someone who was sitting in that group. This person’s response to my earlier sms (which was meant for the general masses and not aimed at any groups or individuals in particular) is totally uncalled for and smacks of irresponsibility and lies. Did my earlier words hit this person’s raw nerves for him or her to shoot back as such??? Did I hit the bullseye till this person felt aggrieved and tried to deflect back to an innocent party???

Cos really, I can’t be bothered to send a spy to investigate things that do not concern my life. As such I am extremely angry with everyone in that group, unless someone has the guts to own up and admit who was responsible for those two sms-es. As it is, some of the members in the group are notoriously known for the old adage “Lempar batu sembunyi tangan” (not owning up to one’s mistake), so I am not expecting anyone to own up…

To that particular group of individuals (you jolly well know who you are!!!), if you are reading this, please do me a favour. Rein in your childish members and tell them to be more responsible with their sms-es. Cos their actions are only affecting the good name that you are trying to build for yourself. The allegations you’ve made are totally out of line and may God be our witness to Aida’s deeds the other night since she did go to Darul Arqam after that to do the necessary, even if you guys assumed that she was there at the restaurant the whole night. Just remember: Fitnah (Slander) is worse than killing a fellow human being. I hope God shows HIS mercy on you people. Thanks for the kind comments above, your professionalism and actions which certainly lacked class, hitting out at an innocent person and her family who have nothing against you in the first place…

P.S. If you have something against me, hit me and me alone. Leave my loved ones alone…
