Innocence of Gopinath Jayaratnam

GAAHH!! RAGING TIME!! :P


There's a link that is circulating on Facebook about this guy, Gopinath Jayaratnam, a fellow ex-student from Unisel saying that he posted a status update on his Facebook account in which he insulted the religion Islam.


I came to know about this drama when I saw the link  on my news feed to a public page which was dedicated to capturing Mr Gopinath.


I don't normally give a damn when I see things like this, simply because I hate jumping into a hate-attack bandwagon just because there's a bunch of people are doing so. It doesn't do anybody any good to be a bunch of cowards hiding behind your computer screen being vocabulary warrior, blasting out the best cynical, comical, hateful lines that your brain can think of.


But when I saw the details showing that he is an ex-UNISEL, and he did the exact same course as I was, I read on, because I was thinking, chances are, I might have been in the same majoring class as he was, and I'd probably remember this guy. Well, I don't. I remember a faces of some seniors who just refused to finish off the damn course and graduate from the university and move on with their lives already, but I can't recall ever seeing this guy's name in the attendance's list. Probably it's just my poor memory to be blamed. I digressed involuntarily.


So I tried my luck and typed in his name in the "search" field, just to see if his Facebook profile is still there, and if it was view-able.


So I found his page. In fact, Mr Gopinath and I have three mutual friends, which are people whom I know in real life.


That's when I got interested with this whole "Tangkap Gopinath Jayaratnam" craze.


I came to know that Mr Gopinath was also arrested while he was home for interrogation purpose.

So here is what he said on this matter, thru his Facebook profile:

"SAYA MEMOHON MAAF ATAS MAKIAN YANG DIBUAT ATAS AGAMA ISLAM DENGAN MENGGUNAKAN AKAUN FACEBOOK SAYA SENDIRI OLEH ORANG YANG HACK FACEBOOK SAYA. SAYA MEMANG TAK AKTIF KAT FACEBOOK.SAYA SELALU GUNA FACEBOOK KAT CYBERCAFE,PEJABAT DAN KAT LIBRARY UNIVERSITI DAN SELALU SAVE PASSWORD KAT SANA.SAYA RASAKAN ACCOUNT FACEBOOK SAYA KENA HACK ORANG KERANA ITU.SAYA PUN DAH LAMA TIDAK AKTIF KAT FACEBOOK SEJAK KEBELAKANGAN INI KERANA SIBUK BELAJAR.SAYA TIDAK PERNAH BERMINAT BAGI MEMAKI MANA-MANA AGAMA.DAN LOGIKNYA TAKKANLAH SAYA SENDIRI DUDUK KAT MALAYSIA DAN BERANI BUAT BENDA TERKUTUK SEBEGINI DENGAN AKAUN FACEBOOK DENGAN GAMBAR SAYA SENDIRI.WALAUPUN ORANG LAIN BUAT BEGINI SAYA MEMOHON MAAF KEPADA SEMUA UMAT ISLAM KAT MALAYSIA.SAYA AKAN DELETE AKAUN FACEBOOK INI DENGAN SERTA MERTA."

It's amazing how that update was shared by 570 people (and counting).


Now, let's rage on this. 

Unsprisingly, other users are slaying on him, throwing out vulgar words on this guy, saying things that, actually tickles my bones.


MOST of these very people, both men and women, who are roaring to the MAX about how this guy should be captured, beaten, whacked, cut, burned, torn, gunned down, killed and whatnot are a JUST A BUNCH OF JOKES TO THE VERY RELIGION THAT THEY ARE SO-THEY-SAID-PROTECTING!!
I'm not going to play God and judge them based on their profile picture, but some of them obviously look like they are in the lowest rank of the society. I mean, men posing with shades on and lips as red as the baboon's ass, and women displaying themselves as if they are up for sale! These people, who obviously have problems with following God's instructions and the Prophet's teachings themselves are talking about punishing a man who is yet to be judged by the authorities!


I'm not saying I'm the best example of a Muslim (WELL, OBVIOUSLY, JUDGING FROM MY OWN PICTURES, YA?) to be condemning these locos, but instead of flaring up to the max as if I've hyper-overdosed myself on Livita and turning into a big, green monster and start slamming on my keyboard (after all of that dramatic transformation, that's the most that they did!), posting, sharing, and spreading out the  link as many times as possible, and screaming and shouting out vulgar words and God's name in the same sentences, I FUCKING GO AND DO MY OWN RESEARCH FIRST!!!


Where are your brains, dumbass??
Who in their rightful senses would ever say something like that publicly and expect to get away just like that. When I read the status update that have caused the uproar, the most that I can think of about it is that it's just a really stupid prank, which have now gone really, really... bad. :(


By the minute, so many Jihadi wannabes are flocking the page, geared up with their keyboard, to either curse him, or publicly, verbally display their love towards Prophet Muhammad, and their fear towards God.




Most of them used words like "paria" and "keling" freely, which is sad.
You seriously think that you can carelessly just use these kind of sensitive words in a provocative manner and get away with it? You'd be surprised to find out how many employers actually stalk on their employees on social networks. You've hit the jackpot if your boss at work happens to be an Indian man/woman. Congrats!  You have just humiliated your mother for giving birth to you! :D


Considering that the admin to "Tangkap Gopinath Jayaratnam" knows his address and his IC number, I'm guessing that the admin is also a student from Unisel. Up till now, this guy who opened up the page have not shown HIS OWN IDENTITY YET. I mean, it should be fair, isn't it? If you dare to dedicate a whole public profile into hating someone, you put up your target's address and IC number on it, and you are so sure that you are right, so where are your details?
Oh wait, you know you are right, but you're not stupid to put your neck on the line, fearing that Mr Gopinath's friends or family member might, at least harm you physically, if not lodge a police report against you, right?? NAAAHHH... I'm sure you've got all 1270 people, and counting, who would be more than glad to back you up fearlessly from any harm. LoL.




Despite that the case has been closed officially and all investigation have been stopped, some stubborn assholes out there, who clearly have no real life outside of their computer, are still going on and raging on over this matter.


It's really sad how people react to matters like this. Mr Gopinath's house was broken and entered into, and everything in it was smashed. In this age where we are living in a civilized world, I strongly condemn any form of violence, no matter whatever the reason is. Say that this guy really did what he did, why all the threats? Using God's, and Prophet's names are never the excuse to validate acts of violence. In fact, it's pathetic.
For no reason, now Mr Gopinath and his family have to live in the hiding, for something that, most probably, he didn't even do!

Let's face it. How many of us who claim to be Muslim, are ACTUALLY walking the talk? How many of the commenters on "Tangkap Gopinath Jayaratnam" can actually admit that they have never watch porn/hold their bf/gf's hand/ wear skimpy clothes/etc?

IN THE NAME OF GOD, PLEASE STOP THE HYPOCRISY, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
