Bernama staff member is a national hero?

On what basis BernamaTV cameraman Noramfaizul Mohd Nor should be treated like a fallen hero?

The honour given to him just because he worked for a government agency or he is a member of delegation for UMNO Youth?

Late Noramfaizul was not representing Malaysia when he was on duty, he was in a private tour with the UMNO Youth. The national hero honour should NOT be bestowed to him.

Only the king can decide who is the national hero, not PM Najib. See Najib is again insulting our King.

A provoking question, do you think Chinese or Indian or other race cameraman for BernamaTV is also giving same treatment if they are the victim?

How about seven orang asli buried alive in the landslide in the Cameron Highlands? Yes, they are nothing, loss of a few orang asli is just another natural disaster statistics.

No newspapers are interested on them at all while BernamaTV cameraman shot dead incident is a front page news in The Star.

This herd of reporters was sent to a battlefield without a proper briefing and training on how to handle war risk and protect themselves.

Please do not tell me army or police cannot loan out 54 bullet proof jackets to this delegation with UMNO is the organizer.

This is a negligence, and the victim family should be compensated by UMNO, not Malaysia government.

Abdul Azeez and UMNO must assume full responsibility for putting the lives of the “mission” members under unnecessary risks in a completely lawless and anarchic country like Somalia. Just watch the movie ‘Black Hawk Down’ to get the picture yourself.

This UMNO publicity stunt has sadly taken its toll on an innocent reporter’s life. From the Mat Rempit expedition to the North Pole to this latest debacle, UMNO has wasted millions on so-called “humanitarian programs”, the bulk of the expenditure on the traveling and living cost of its own personnel. The impact and benefits of their so-called missions is very questioneable, as they are poorly planned and executed.

UMNO has wasted a lot of money to bring in a large group of members from the media to cover and publicize their “mission”. Why the need for such a large group of reporters? Many other international charitable organizations work under zero media coverage because they are there to do real work and not for cheap publicity stunts.

Shame on you Abdul Azeez and UMNO!

Syamsul Fahmi says:

I am not in a position to comment if he is indeed a national hero.

We should instead ask if the trip a humanitarian mission to help Somalians or was it an ill conceived publicity stunt?

If it was a humanitarian mission why did the whole team came scurring back after the unfortunate death? In a very fitting way the oganiser got all the publicity he rightly deserved although not of the type he wished for. Fate works in wonderful ways and the organiser must now surrender to it and take the blame for the loss of a young life.

This UMNO initiated humanitarian aid is just a political stunt.

Malaysian national hero is dirt cheap now if any cameraman died in the job is declared a national hero.

There are thousand of Malaysians doing humanitarian works in overseas, and almost all of them never reported by any local newspapers.

Zaki says:

Sadly today in Malaysia heroism is defined by Umno to suit their agenda.

Stella says:

Datuk T should have given his bullet proof vest to our poor fellow Malaysian who was asked to glorify UMNO in overseas mission.
