Morality Nosedive

 Fazim Sheik Tahsheen, Nadi

I do not know what is happening to morals of people nowadays. Every now and then we see people uploading pictures on social sites, people who have passed away in accidents and people covered in blood. It does not look good when we see pictures like these.

I would like to ask people who click and upload these kinds of photos:

  1. How would you feel if you are injured, covered in blood and people took photos of you while you are in pain?
  2. How would you feel if somebody uploaded pictures of your loved ones when they were bleeding to death?

Please improve your morals and remember death is not something you take photos of. Raise your hands to care for the injured don’t click photos of them.



Same sex marriage

 Lawrence H Narayan, Suva

On the subject of same sex marriage, we Christians must understand that marriage is a sacred relationship which was initiated by the Creator for the benefit of humanity as a whole (Genesis 2:18). Any two people (male and female) may enter into this divine relationship with the assurance that the union is recognised by God.

Marriage as we know has always been a covenant between a man and a woman. It is not just any relationship between human beings. It is a relationship rooted in human nature and thus governed by natural law. Being rooted in human nature, natural law is universal and unchallengeable.

Apostle Paul taught in the Epistle to the Romans that the natural law is inscribed on the heart of every man (Romans 2:14-15). Marriage was established by God in Paradise for our first parents, Adam and Eve and blessed them, saying: ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it” (Gen. 1:28-29).

Whenever one violates the natural moral order established by God, one sins and offends God. Same-sex “marriage” does just this. Accordingly, anyone who professes to love God must be opposed to it.


Amazing Mahendra Reddy

 Tukai Lagonilakeba, Namaka

The Ministry of Eduction, Heritage and Arts is probably one of the most challenging ministerial portfolios in our country. It spearheads our economic future through making Fijians literate in all forms of our education sector.

We are grateful that our fitness fanatic learned educational reformist and ‘kai Nadro’ Mahendra Reddy is spearheading the team, he is a tireless worker and succeeds in all the plans the ministry has so far implemented to upgrade all our education systems and to bring it up to par in compliance with international levels as dictated to by the UN.

I congratulate him on his current path of engagement in implementing his consultative MoE team travelling throughout the country to hear out concerns and informing all stakeholders of his ministry’s future reform plans. It is such a daunting task, but it must be achieved at all costs. These are very bold FijiFirst Government decisions as prescribed in its Political Party Manifesto and there is no other way forward but to constructively engage in order to bring out the best so we will better our education system for the sake of our Country and its future Fijians.

Despite the unwarranted critics from many around our country, Mr Reddy must persevere and push on irrespective but with the FijiFirst Government agenda of achieving good quality education and service delivery by our hardworking teachers.

The bigger picture and plan for all Fijians is prescribed in the FijiFirst party manifesto from pages 11-13 under the heading, “Education, Health and Training”, there should be nothing less than that, where it meticulously had stamped its policy and promise.

There is no need for panic from the public as the peoples government is only implementing its agenda, press on it Mr Reddy, there is still more work to be done.


Bus shelters

 Dhirendra Prasad, Lautoka

Is it possible to have bus shelters along the four lane road near the Nadi International Airport? It is rainy season and school is just about to open while not forgetting our workers and other travellers not only in the rain but the sun as well.

This would be a very much needed help to our dear road users. By the way the road is great and convincing to drive.
