A senior broadcast journalist had to lodge a police report at the Kuala Terengganu District Headquarters after receiving death threats after he had exposed a poorly managed religious school in on of his news reports.
The death treats that were sent out through Facebook, were prompted by his exclusive exposure of Sekolah Rendah Islam Darul Iman Wakaf Mempelam which was allegedly operating without electricity and water supply.
Mohd Ishak Abdillah Ngah explained, as reported by Malaysiakini, that he made the report in order to ensure the safety of himself and his family after receiving multiple death threats from several people. He said,
“I was showered with profanity and threats of murder. Some people even posted abusive comments to hurt me and destroy my life.”
Meanwhile Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo has advised the public not to resort to giving out death threats and violence if they disagree with media. He told The Star that there are other measures that can be taken in regards of the situation without having to resort to brutality.
A reporter or broadcaster’s job is to report about incidents which can be used as a catalyst to solve problems. Even if it is a bad news, the best way to react is to find the solution to the problem that triggers the news report in the first place. Let’s be better and learn to react better ok?
