They allegedly used minors to sell stuff and collect money.
Here's the link -
This is not something new. We all know and many of us have witnessed children going around commercial areas in residential estates selling calendars, religious books, ointments and the lot.
They all look like students wearing songkok and they will either tell you where they're from or show you proof of identity.
They go to restaurants that allow them in and go from table to table -- much like how the blind of "visually-challenged" men who are aided by healthy ladies in tudung do so selling packets of tissue paper.
There are also boys in baju Melayu who have set up permanent operating sites - a table with a a donation box for orphanages, religious schools et al - outside banks .
These 2 senior citizens are not alone in their (alleged) crime. If it's true they're exploiting children, they're likely the less evil in this nefarious and sinister industry.
There are bigger crooks who have amassed wealth from their despicable exploitation of children.
What do we do as a community?
Many Muslims are aware of this exploitation. Yet, they buy the items from these kids or make donations.
If this is all a scam, then this scam will continue and made to perpetuate because there's a market of "customers".
This has been going on for more than 20 years. At least in Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
Most of the boys say they are from Kedah.
Why has it been allowed to go on for this long?
Your guess is as good as mine.
And why do people keep on buying items from these boys or make donations to their tabung?
Simple: Pity, compassion and a sense of humanity.
What if these boys are legit, they ask themselves.
And if they're not, punishment will come from Him.
For what they see before them, they give.
And this humanity is what is being exploited by the evil syndicate masters.
This has been allowed to go on for far to long.
The longer this goes on, the more difficult it is to tackle.
It is whether you want to, or not.
