Netizens hit out at Bangi rep

PETALING JAYA: Netizens have “pounded” a PAS assemblyman who objected to a cinema in Bangi.

They expressed their frustration over Bangi assemblyman Dr Shafie Abu Bakar’s objection via the Staronline page on Facebook.

They were responding to news reports that Dr Shafie did not want a cinema in his constituency as it would encourage vice activities.

Vivien Loke expressed dismay with PAS for wanting to ban various forms of entertainment.

Ribbon Ooi called on PAS leaders to take a moderate stand.

Jane Wee noted that movies were available online, suggesting that banning cinemas would not stop people from watching movies or engaging in vice.

Izzanie Ismail likened PAS to the Taliban.

“Welcome to Talibanland,” she said, questioning if PAS was of the view that its ceramah were more entertaining than movies.

Ernest Boey said if PAS came to power, it would ban everything which it assumed served to promote vice activities.

Mogamadon Abdullah asked if PAS would also ban television viewing in Bangi.

“The YB Bangi should discuss with the municipal (council) or the state government. Why act like an opposition in your own coalition-ruled state?” he asked.

Khairi Samsul Bahri told critics to stop bad-mouthing Dr Shafie.

“If don’t like, cross (vote for) BN (Barisan Nasional) lah,” he said.

Selangor Gerakan Youth deputy secretary-general Stephen Doss said market forces should decide if Bangi should have a cinema.

“The fact that a PAS politician can make unilateral decisions on behalf of a coalition is disturbing,” he said.
