KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 2, 2015:

With a barrage of pictures making its rounds following the Bersih 4 rally last weekend, one picture stands out, but not for a good reason.

A child, propped up on an adult’s shoulder in the midst of the rally near Dataran Merdeka, was seen holding a placard.

While it was already made clear that children should not have been brought to the rally, many did not heed the advice and brought along their young children last weekend.

With that being one clear violation of the law, what made the picture stand out even more was the fact that the placard the child was holding contained a foul word in it.

“My mom & dad don’t need sex coz my government f***ed my mom & dad everyday!!!”

The Rakyat Post‘s photographer managed to snap a photo of the child carrying the placard, while various other shots of the picture taken by others were also shared on social media.

In the posting shared by Facebook page Friends of BN – Barisan Nasional, one user Mohd Hafiz Yusof commented: “Immoral uncivilized parents.”

“Shame on this kind of message teaching to innocent kid,” said user Mohammed Rahman.

Vanessa Qaronezzi, meanwhile, lamented on how it was sad that kids became victims.

“Kesian budak2 jadi mangsa ( Pity the children become victims),” Vanessa wrote in the comments section of the Facebook posting.

Meanwhile, another photo is also being shared online, depicting two children in yellow T-shirts sleeping on the road at the rally.

This photo was also shared by Friends of BN’s Facebook page.

The following two photos were snapped by The Rakyat Post‘s photographer, also during the rally, of children in the midst of the crowded gathering.

At the peak of it, it was estimated that the rally in Kuala Lumpur had some 32,800 people participating in the areas surrounding Dataran Merdeka.
