It is never funny nor appropriate to make fun of Persons with Disabilities (OKU). However, if you’re one of the people who enjoy making a mockery out of their disabilities, days of community service may be ahead of you!

The Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development (KPWKM) will examine the proposed sentence of 100 to 150 days for community service programs to be imposed on those who ridicule differently abled people.

Its Deputy Minister, Datuk Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff said KPWKM believes that the proposal should be greenlit because the community service program outlined 3 main elements – punishment, rehabilitation and repentance.

“The ministry will look into the proposal further in the process of reviewing the OKU Act 2008,” she said in the Dewan Negara sitting here today (28 March).

Additionally, Siti Zailah also said,

“KPWKM takes the discrimination against the disabled seriously, especially through the spread on social media.”

As for the proposed establishment of the OKU Commission, Siti Zailah said that as of now, any complaints, appeals and petitions related to violations of the rights of OKU can be channelled to the Malaysian Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) and other existing legal systems.

You can listen to her full statement below.

Do you think it is a wise move in order to teach the people who mock OKU a lesson?
