What is the big fuss?

Dear Editor,

Most of the media both print and electronic are attacking the Minister of Finance with a vengeance. They have been making all sorts of pronouncements without any verification. Sometimes I wonder how careless and insensitive the human being can be.

Yes, the Minister was involved in an accident. The Minister took full responsibility and took care of all expenses of those who suffered from injury and loss. He is a normal human being with emotions just like you and I; he is not a product of a laboratory.  Indeed the Minister was visibly shaken so he departed the scene but left his representatives to attend to his responsibilities and to fulfil his commitments. This is all normal behaviour for a human being of stature who has been struck by adversity.

So what is the big fuss?

I don’t know the Minister personally, but I understand that he has refused high paying jobs to serve this nation, and from what I have seen he is running the country’s financial affairs with great efficiency under very difficult circumstances. It is time we stop this nonsense and respect people for the services they are giving to our country.

Let us respect the human rights of all and let us be very responsible in our reporting.

Yours faithfully,

Nazar Mohamed
