This is not a [email protected]#$ Joke !

Berita Harian , a Malay daily in Malaysia recently published this comic strip which a lot of people find inappropriate at times of like this. As we know that , Japan suffered a major earthquake and tsunami , which has claimed lives of 900 people in Japan . Instead Berita Harian decided to put this in their comic strip which I find it very inappropriate.
”]”] “]Berita Harian today - Its very inappropriateIt it not something funny.  Running ultraman from tsunami ?  I wonder why the editors and the cartoonist find it funny and approved it in the first place .  I expect Berita Harian to publicly apologize in their newspaper. Suppose if they fail to publicly apologize over this mistake . I urge my readers to send an e-mail to [email protected] regarding this issue. The reason why I ask is so , is because if we could get people to send a letter (don’t worry , those chaps know English) to berita harian from International crowd , they would know how serious or what trouble they got themselves into as opposed to getting support from local people.  The least that you could do is by mentioning in your twitter , your blog or even your Facebook.
The people over at Berita Harian should know that Malaysia has a very good diplomatic relationship with Japan and at hard times of like this. Berita Harian should be spreading the word around on how Malaysians could help Japan. I do hope that I’ve managed to capture your attention regarding this issue and let us do our part in helping out Japan. Here is a complete list on how you could help Japan . Suppose if you are not from US , kindly check your local newspaper or television on how you could help Japan. Let us all do our part and put our differences aside , after all they are humans just like us !
Lastly but not least , Berita Harian in the near future please be more sensitive towards the current issue.
UPDATE #1 : There is an online petition created by a Malaysia. I guess this really took place
UPDATE #2 : Berita Harian’s Editor apologized regarding this issue. He issued a statement in Berita Harian’s official facebook page

  1. It wasn’t meant to be funny. What the cartoonist is trying to get across is that no one, not even a Superhero like Ultraman can stand against a force of nature such as a tsunami. How does anyone not understand this concept?
