VIPs Visit Nini's Family

The family of missing girl -- 5 year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar or fondly called Nini -- has been receiving VIPs at their home today.
Prime Minister's wife, Jean Abdullah was there to comfort Nini's mother, Suraya Ahmad,.
So were Women, Family and Community Development Minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil and Selangor Menteri Besar Mohd Khir Toyo and his wife Zahrah Kechik.

Jean told Suraya to be patient and to pray for her daughter's safety and said that her husband always prayed for Nini's safety.

Nini has been missing since Wednesday (January 9) when she was abducted at about 11am at a playing field near her home in Taman Dato Harun in PJS.

Later, speaking to reporters, she appeald to the public to be the eyes and ears of the authorities in helping to find Nini.

See here for the Bernama story.

Shahrizat called on all Malaysians to help look for Nini and reiterated her appeal to Nini's abductors not to harm her.

Khir Toyo said that the Selangor Government would immediately begin installing closed-circuit television cameras at all public playgrounds as a safety measure.

See here for the story.

I'm just so glad that Nini's family is getting moral support from the VIPs. More than that, "everyone" seemed to be involved in the search for Nini.

I won't cast any doubt on the sincerity of politicians (or their spouses) given that the general election is drawing so near.
I can vouch for Shahrizat because she had been untiring in efforts to introduce child protection measures.

It's too late and useless to mull over Nurin's brutal murder. But just a thought....if only it had been the same for Nurin.
Be that as it I have often said. Let her death not be in vain.
And, thankfully, it was not.

God Almighty, please protect little Nini...

The VIPs visiting Nini's family is a nice gesture to console and show concern.Surely they had been telling them..."Sabar and banyakkan do'a".
But this is not enough!!. After this all of them should head for the IGPs office and give him a piece of their mind....and say.."Peerah Musa..ape kau dgn anak2 buah kau buat haah...."

Jangan mareh..

Let me share this experience i had at Giant in Tampoi, JB.

I was there on sunday nite with my 2 year old girl and husband. we were at the cashier when i saw a malay girl abt 8yrs old crying, she must have lost her parents (I assumed). So i took her in my hand and calmed her down n we backtracked to where she came from. About 5 cashiers away, she found her dad. Guess wat the father did as soon as he saw her?
HE SLAPPED her!! I was so outraged, I asked the girl was this her father, all she could do was nod her head.
What kind of father is that?
He didnt even acknowledge the fact that i brought his kidback to him.

Well, I dont know the whole scenarion, the girl may have been throwing tantrums and was jus prob ruunning away frm parents when she realised she couldnt get wat she wanted. but still after all this cases of missing children, shouldnt the parents be abit more careful of their kids?

sigh...when would they ever learn..probably only when the child goes missing??

Just needed to share this..Michelle Chow
