Malaysia is a country filled with opportunities for its own people and for those who come here with dreams and ambitions.
Recently a video made by a Rohingya man went viral on social media. The video was in response to an “activist” identified only as “ustaz” who is apparently known on TikTok for making videos about immigrants.
The “ustaz”, who posts on TikTok as @lawan4malaysialgi recently posted a video shot in Kampung Bagan, Penang where he was seen questioning a Rohingya man operating a shop.
The “ustaz” alleged in the video that the immigrants owned motorcycles without proper documentation and licence, calling for the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to conduct a raid.
Meanwhile, the Rohingya man in his viral video responded to the “ustaz” saying while it is true they came from another country, but they are not here by choice.
…Our hometown has problems, so we had to run here,Rohingya Man
The Rohingya man also pointed out that they are here to work and not disturb anyone’s family or their well-being.
We have legs, arms and strength to work and earn our own living so that we don’t trouble the local people.Rohingya Man
At the end of the video, he urged the “ustaz” to stop involving himself too much in the business of the immigrants and allow the rightful people in charge to take care of it.
This has caused some mixed emotions among Netizens. Some are saying that we should continue to voice our grouses, with some complaining the immigrants were not grateful with the opportunities they had been given.
Orang malaysia ni makin lama makin takde belas kasihan dengan common sense agaknya, dia nak cari makan cane kalau kad pink tu tak bagi dia kerja? Nak harapkan bantuan kerajaan cane? kalau kerajaan nak bagi bantuan kat rakyat sendiri pun terketar-ketar? (Itupun kalau bagi)— retard (@Itsyaboiagain2) February 28, 2023
