Compensate the victims

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

Who will compensate victims of violent crimes committed by criminals?

The sentencing of these criminals is not good enough.

The loss of a limb, an arm, women and children who were raped, murdered, the looting and burning of properties, and thieving are all traumatic experiences one should never experience.

Who will replace all that is lost from these criminal acts as the victim’s properties have all been earned in a fair equitable honest manner? People are talking about torture of escaped prisoners, torture of those who commit the above crimes, but how about the punishment dished out to Fijians by these criminals? Who deserves the right to which treatment here?

What is human rights anyway and whose rights are we defending?

There is too much talk of defending the innocence of these criminals until proven guilty, they should not be tortured when hunted down by our law enforcers, but how about the rights of those victims who are still trying to recover from the ordeals, injuries and the trauma inflicted on them, many whom are still being left paralysed for the rest of their lives.

Do unto others what you want to be done to you. Many escaped prisoners and a violent robber have passed on through their ungodly doings, and is it correct to say that yes, they fully deserved it?


Kava revelation

Sukha Singh, Labasa

Doctors have revealed that heavy kava swipers require more drugs for surgery.

I refer to the above article and this particular statement:

“However, the open heart surgery team could not confirm whether excessive kava consumption by these patients was a direct cause for the high use of anesthetics on them.”

I can easily prove this to the doctors if they can find me a few grog swipers on whom I can test my straight right punches on their foreheads.

I know of a person who is a well-known grog swiper from the West, and I hope he can be one of the volunteers.


Behavioural change

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Canada

The speech by the Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Mereseini Vuniwaqa, should be commended, where she stressed that the eradication of violence against women requires “behavioural change.”

She made this statement while addressing staff members of the ministry at the end of the 16 Days of Activism in Suva last Friday.

Come to think of it, all of mankind’s problem in the world today, including Fiji, could be narrowed down to behavioural change as its solution.

It is sad to say that all of mankind’s attempts to bring about true behavioural change have failed or only temporary.

I believe that the 16 Days of Activism, which ended on Friday, not only highlighted human solutions but most importantly, the divine solution for a permanent behavioural change for all Fijians.

As a politician and a Minister, she may be gagged not to reveal the ultimate solution because for behavioural change because of political correctness.

Fijians need to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, for He alone is the divine solution who can transform the mind and change a hardened criminal or women bashers into a humble and obedient child of God.

The human solution for behavioural change tries to work on the outside to bring about inner change.

The divine solution is easy, because we only have to surrender our will to God and pray, “Lord, here I am, please change me to be like you.”

Fiji could really be the way the world should be, if we all experience for ourselves this divine solution for behavioural change.
