I am not religious, I don’t have a religion and unlikely to have one. Why am I talking about God’s punishment in this queer case? Actually it was a fairly straight forward case but somehow, somewhere a long the line, it seemed that something had happened, maybe God’s intervention, that the whole thing starts to smell, to look foul and to turn foul. Everyone is crying foul, from the people in the streets, in the kopitiams, in the govt, in the churches, in City Harvest, foul, foul, foul…
This is why I say it is God’s punishment. The only thing I am not sure, who is God punishing, the good ones, the innocent ones, the crooked ones, the holy ones, or the scheming ones? Come to think of it, everyone is being punished. No one is spared, from the accused/guilty parties from the CHC to the courts and the govt. Everyone seems to have been tarred by the soil water splashing around.
Everyone is looking ugly and smelly. How could this happen this way when only the culprits should be punished while the rest of the innocents, the courts and govt, should be standing on high ground as the deliverers of justice and looking good and shining bright, but not?
As they said, don’t meddle with shit, don’t play with shit, your hands would be dirty like shit and you will smell like shit. God’s punishment is on everyone dabbling with shit or putting their hands into the pot of shit. The good court and the judges are also being hurled with shit until Shanmugam had to tell the people to be less generous with their expletives. Unbelieveable, but as they said, God works in a mysterious way that human beans would not be able to understand. This is a rare case when the govt has to say ''tolong''.
What do you think?
