A Friend In Need

Earlier today a friend informed me of the problems she and several of her colleagues have at their working place. In replying to her, I have bcc'ed the email to several other friends in hope of getting a response. Alhamdulillah, I received a reply from one, who seem sincere in wanting to assist. Though I am not at liberty to reproduce the earlier original transactions, I think it is fairly safe for me to reproduce this email I received from Encik Mohd Sha'ani Abdullah, the Chief Executive for FOMCA, the Federation of Malaysia Consumer Association. The reply, reads as below:

Assalamulaikum,
I'm full time with FOMCA from this month. How can I help? Their
attitude and apathy can not be solved by condeming publicly.
We need to engage them to educate & change them.
We need to develop strategies. Form a group/NGO to articulate and
impress the power to be.
Plse contact me.
Thank you.
Regards.
Muhammad Sha'ani b. Abdullah
Ketua Eksekutif

As evident from the email reply, it shows FOMCA by itself is not in position to help. But I believe they would be able to assist direct the problem to the proper channel, insyAllah. At the same time, I have also relayed the same email to Puan Mastura of Nisa' where they may just take on the matter.

Reason why I'm putting this up is in hope that anyone who might be interested to assist on the matter, or perhaps even make a complaint regarding consumer matters, they may do so by writing to Encik Sha'ani at "Muhammad Sha'ani b. Abdullah" mdshaani@tm.net.my. On my part, I will wait further development before deciding how best to assist. For certain though, I do not think any of them would be able to assist on matters relating to the heart.

Mayhaps, just mayhaps, anyone with such a problem should visit one of those Aztecs or Mayan pyramids where they once pull out the heart of their victims while still alive. Still, last I heard such a practice is now in Malaysia. Hmm...
