OF SREBRENICA'S MASSACRE


Finally, after 11 years, the Dutch Government and the UN have to answer about their role in allowing the Srebrenica's massacre to happen. In court.

A friend of mine, Hasan (a Bosnian) came from Srebrenica. I met him in Zagreb's mosque in 1998 which were (and still are) the focal point of the Muslim population in Zagreb. He's a refugee and was lucky enough to escape with his life when it happened. His father, all his male siblings and relatives were killed in that massacre.

I cant imagine how people like Hasan deals with the tragedy everyday for the rest of his life.

Hopefully, as a Malaysian, I dont have to.

Just a year before that, between April and July 1994, in a short period of 4 months, an estimated 800,000 people were killed in Rwanda. The UN Secretary General acknowledged UN failure in 1998 to prevent the genocide. It's endless.

Human beings can be so passionate about almost anything: lust, desire, hate, religion, race, politics, et cetera; that they are capable of such countless, heinous atrocities. If only more can be passionate about being compassionate.......
