A 14 year old Rafiqin mocked the late Din Beramboi.
Someone screen captured his FB status.
A hate group was created in Facebook. Kami Benci Rafiqin Darwisy has over 48 000 fans.
Thousands of people are publicly executing this 14 year old boy. Thousands of supposedly level-headed adults.
Vindictive adult netizens are spewing curse words, calls for repent and mocked the living hell out of the 14 year old boy.
We were all 14 once. I'm sure we've said things we regretted. Stupid nonsensical things. I've said things like 'Bodoh ah Su***n ni! Judi sana sini pastu balik dapat duit dari kerajaan!" in front of my family members. They ignored my outburst. Later that evening, an uncle told me think before I say anything about or related to the rulers.
Can you imagine if my aunts and uncles were to react like Rafiqin Darwisy haters?
Well, I can't fathom the thought of them reacting by shouting "Puki mak kau lah pukimak, sedap hati je hina Sultan!" or "Astagfirullah, bertaubatlah saudara, bertaubatlah sebelum dimasukkan ke neraka jahannam." or "Eh, ko orang Islam ke weih? Fuck you lah!"
Tak trauma ke Afiq Deen yang berumur 14 tahun itu?
People make mistakes, especially 14 year old boys.
As like-minded adults, we should react to teenage outbursts with tolerance and patience. What I see now are overly emotional mourners who channel their sadness by tormenting a 14 year old boy because of his silly remarks.
Rafiqin is literally growing up. He is a sponge, absorbing knowledge and traits he sees around him, including adults' reactions to his insensitive FB status. If this quick to judge and Judge Dred-ish public execution attitude continues, he will opt the same way of thinking and will soon...
