Not mine but I consider it mine to share – this happened in the capital city of MALAYSIA, KUALA LUMPUR.
“Random attacks against tourists and expats in KL
A few days ago (Saturday 26-1-2013) my friend and I were walking in KLCC Park (i.e the park in the Twin Towers) around 21:00 between Mandarin Oriental Hotel and KL Convention Center when I was attacked from the back by 10-15 young Malaysian guys who gathered around me and started hitting me out of nowhere… I don’t know them, I’ve never seen them in my life and we were walking in the park totally minding our own business! For a moment I was shocked, surprised and totally thrown off-balance but it took me a second or two to get up and start hitting (trying desperately but not successfully) to hit back and scream for help. Of course nobody from the people around has a drop of humanity or chivalry to even say a word! The bravest action from the people there was to stand and watch. After around 2 minutes with my kicking and hitting back and screaming like a madman the guys ran away… and from a close proximity I saw a police man mounted on his motorbike so lazily and cold bloodedly coming towards me and was about to pass by me, not even to ask what the hell was wrong with me until I stopped him desperately to complain, but of course – to the surprise of those who are new to KL (but I was not surprised at all!) – he didn’t care the least and rode off in the opposite direction while some of the guys were still in sights and he could easily pursue them (or at least pretend that he is perusing them)! Now I know that the website here is not a complaint box and of course now no one can do anything about it, coz those who could lend a helping hand right on the scene didn’t give a f@#k! (I can swear that some of them were videotaping the incident). I am just writing this to warn whoever is planning to come to the beautiful country of Malaysia and enjoy the nature, the weather and the food… think twice people! Obviously the purpose of attack was not mugging… it was simply hate… I guess some Malaysians are fed up with tourists and expats coming to their country and spending sh*t loads of money on hotels, food and transportation. They just want to be left alone… so leave them alone and find yourselves another vacation spot… unless of course u r in for some action! Last important note… for those who do not know: If you are not safe in KLCC Park (i.e. the twin towers) then you will not be safe anywhere in Malaysia! A friendly reminder, a similar incident happened about 2 months ago in the tunnel/bridge between KLCC and Pavilion (not to me but I witnessed it) and of course remember the tourist who was stabbed to death (from the back) in Jalan P. Ramlee in broad day light last month (it was all over the social networks but of course unfortunately didn’t make it to national news!!).”
