Alright , let ' s get down to business . Honestly speaking , I am not really a big fan of demonstration . By the way , for those people who think that staging a demonstration is a good idea , I would like you to think again . Maybe these people will ask me a question , WHY ?? The reason is simple , what would you expect to get from a demonstration ?
If you thought that the government will change their mind after receiving the memorandum of your demonstration , think again . Chances are instead of submitting to your claim , they will just ignore your referendums , survey polls and all those relevant data's regarding the cause in which you are fighting for . So what , you want to waste your time by creating another event of demonstration ? Do you really had nothing to do ? I leave this question to you .
Moreover , organising a demonstration is not an easy feat . Accidents , mishaps , can be caused by unruly behaviours of some demonstrators . Just imagine , an anonymous person suddenly throws a hand grenade or started to shoot randomly to the people and the authorities . Just imagine how many civilians can get hurt or get killed in such mishap . In the end , it is the organiser who will be persecuted under the law , instead of the real perpetrator . Basically , the organiser had become the scapegoat for the crime they did not commit .
Furthermore , I think that the Malaysian society as a whole must be vigilant and extra cautious in every demonstration they are about to take part . They must first investigate whether the claims , opinions and the purpose of such demonstration are truly genuine facts and figures in which it cannot be denied by any parties . Secondly , they must also know in which venue , the demonstration will be taking place . This is because certain places such as Dataran Merdeka and Tugu Pahlawan are off-limit to any demonstrations and politically - motivated gatherings , considering the cultural and historical significance of these sites to Malaysia . The image of these places shall not be tarnished by these events .
Last but not least , I urged all of my readers to try not to " show off yourself " in the public too often . If you really think that the government had fall out of favour with the public , just use your voting power . Vote for the opposition . After all , Malaysia is a democratic nation . You can vote for anyone you like . Isn't it a better idea than demonstration ?
