KUALA LUMPUR, June 23, 2015:
“During Ramadan people are more focused on doing business rather than good deeds. It is embarrassing for them to quarrel in such a holy month.”
That was the response of a Facebook user identified as Abdul Raouf Jesperi, who was irked and ashamed by a video featuring two foreigners being verbally assaulted and jostled by bazaar vendors in Damansara Damai.
The 58-second video, which is making rounds on the Internet, sees a vendor rudely shooing and screaming at two Caucasian men who approached him. Other vendors around the area attempted to calm him down.
Another angry voice, assumed to belong to the person recording the ruckus, was also heard shouting and shooing the two men, who subsequently walked away from the scene.
According to the caption which was tagged with the video, it is understood the two foreigners wanted to move their car that was parked at the site where the bazaar was located.
The video, which was posted by My Media Hub on their Facebook page last night, received over 500 likes and 700 shares.
One Facebook user, known as Imi Qaf, said he was left embarrassed by the whole affair.
“Org melayu buat perangai mcm tu, nnti mat saleh citer kat org2 lain bahawa melayu sangat kurang ajar, saper yg malu, aku gak yg malu.” (When Malays act as such, those foreigners will spread the notion all Malays are rude. Who will be humiliated if not us)
“Berniaga ibadat, tetapi berniaga macam samseng dan kurang ajar bukan ibadat ya. Nampak sangat peniaga ni pun jenis yang tak puasa,” (Doing business is good, but doing it rudely and acting like a gangster is not part of it. Obviously the stall owner is not fasting.), commented a Jamal Pawanteh.
