If you got the opportunity to express your disappointment, anger or frustration over matters that adversely affect your life, carrier or your family, what would you do?
And if you are given the chance to vent it on someone, especially a minister or a politician (BN or PR), who would you choose?
In India, Indian agriculture minister Sharad Pawar (pic) has been slapped at a public function by a youth who claimed he was angry with corruption and price hike, local media reports.
Harvinder Singh, a transporter in his thirties, had been sentenced for assaulting former telecom minister Sukhram on Saturday, before the latest assault took place at a public auditorium on Parliament Street on Thursday.
Later, Pawar reacted to the incident calling it stupid and that he did not make much out of it, NDTV said.
"I was answering some questions by a group of journalists when I saw this man coming towards me and I thought he wanted to ask me a question. I don't know what his intention was. It is up to the police whether they want to press charges against him or not.
Prime minister Manmohan Singh and finance minister Pranab Mukherjee have condemned the attack on Pawar.
Reacting to the assault on Pawar, anti-corruption campaigner Anna Hazare asked, "...only one slap?"
I don't recall any similar incidents took place in Malaysia, except for former PM Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who was 'attacked' by chilly powder at a Kelantan airport a few years ago.
It also reminds me of Iraqi journalist Muntazar al-Zaidi who threw shoes at George Bush during the US leader's visit to Baghdad in 2008.
Well, leaders and politicians alike should stay clear of such assaults, don't you think so? If they are nice, good and performing, they should be okay, I suppose...
