The Great Red Giants Slaying A Blogger 5 Millions Ringgit Poorer

The art of leadership as displayed by really great popular leaders in all ages consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention into sections. The more resistant energies from the people are directed towards one objective the more will new recruits join the movement attracted by the magnetism of its unified action and thus the striking power will be all the more enhanced.

The leader of genius must have the ability to make different opponents appear as if they belonged to the one category of for weak and wavering natures among a leader's following may easily begin to be dubious about the justice of their own cause if they have to face different enemies. As soon as the vacillating masses find themselves facing the opposition that is made up of different groups of enemies their sense of objectivity will be aroused and they will ask how is it that all the others can be in the wrong and they themselves and their movement are right all along.

Recently, a blogger like me being sued by AirAsia due to his posting questioning about quality in safety measures by AirAsia. Can you imagine, a huge Conglomerates suing a tiny guy for 5 millions ringgit. I believed it is not for the money and not going to include this into profit and loss (P&L). I also believed that AirAsia knew that man don't have the money to settle the suits. Poor guy. As for AirAsia, I wonder is it because of justice or vengeance?

That blogger I believed might have some points right by the way. To keep oneself safe doesn't mean to bury oneself. I have always been among those who believed that the greatest freedom of speech was the greatest safety, because if a man is a fool, the best thing to do is to do is to encourage the person to advertise the fact by speaking. I have done some study over few articles, foreign news, local news and few others media. There are series of unfortunate events happened to AirAsia before including not obtaining the operating license. They are so lucky being given a temporary operating license as no one ever knew why dca giving such.

No airline is safe from accidents, AirAsia included. Well understood. Refer to the summary of some incident's happened as below stated. There were some links also to some news portal related to those incidents. These incidents should be raising red flags among aviation safety experts, as they are most likely symptoms of a larger issue.

  • 8 November 2004 – On AirAsia Flight 104, the Boeing 737 plane carrying 111 passengers and five crew skidded while landing. Three passengers – a five-year-old girl and two women – were injured while evacuating from the plane and received outpatient treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
  • 14 December 2005 – The Kota Kinabalu International Airport was closed for a few hours after an AirAsia plane burst a tire on landing. There were no injuries in the 10.30pm incident.
  • On 10 January 2011, AirAsia Flight 5218 skidded on the runway whilst landing. The incident occurred around 10:15pm during a heavy downpour. Four passengers were rushed to Sarawak General Hospital, believed to have suffered from health complications.
  • 3 August 2012 – On AirAsia Flight 5187 from Miri to Kuala Lumpur was scheduled to take off at 7.40pm. Furious passengers had their journey delayed for over an hour as a result of a man’s emphatic decision not to remain on the plane until take off. A witness said that as the plane was about to take off, the man suddenly opened the emergency doors and leapt out. On-duty flight attendants reportedly said they were powerless to stop him from opening the emergency exit and jumping out once the plane had started to move on the runway.
  • In Dec 2014, AirAsia flight AK6242, with over 150 passengers aboard, experienced a technical problem about 10 minutes after taking off from Penang, Malaysia, and had to return to the airport. The malfunction was soon corrected and the flight safely reached its short-haul destination of Langkawi Island.
  • Last December 2014, an AirAsia flight FD3254 bound for northeast Thailand’s Khon Kaen had to return back to the capital Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport soon after departing at 11:10 am due to an “irregularity” detected by pilots in the storage compartment.
  • On 28 December 2014, Indonesia AirAsia Flight 8501(QZ8501/AWQ8501) crashed during bad weather, killing all 155 passengers and seven crew on board. Two days after the crash, debris from the aircraft and human remains were found floating in the Java sea. As for now was was being investigated for illegal flight.
  • An AirAsia Zest plane from Manila on December 30 rolled off the runway in bad weather conditions on arrival at the popular Philippines resort island of Boracay. All 153 passengers and crew of the Flight Z2272 were safely evacuated from the aircraft at Kalibo airport, but the small airport was shut down for some time.
  • In January 2015, in a string of incidents, an engine of an AirAsia aircraft with 120 passengers onboard cut out during taxiing before takeoff from Juanda International Airport in the Indonesian city of Surabaya, and passengers were forced to disembark.
  • Feb 8th. 2015, An AirAsia X Airbus A330-300, registration 9M-XXG performing flight D7-172 from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) to Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) with 371 people on board, had just reached cruise level 300 about 110nm westnorthwest of Kuala Lumpur when the crew entered a hold to work the checklists on the failure of an autothrottle and subsequently decided to return to Kuala Lumpur. The aircraft burned off fuel and landed safely back about 4:45 hours after departure.

The one permanent emotion of the inferior man is fear. The fear is unknown, complex and inexplicable. What everybody wants above everything else is safety. That is so common. It seems like A Great Giant slaying A Dwaft. The Dwaft will be crushed until there is nothing left. My personal humble opinion, AirAsia as a Giant in the industries should act more professionals and their judgement shouldn't be clouded by vengeance. The blogger has already removed the posting a day after he noticed that some facts written was not accurate. Just for that he being 5 millions Ringgit poorer.  In this unfortunate event, the blogger is the victim of circumstances or victim of vengeance where the giants slaying anyone who cross their path without mercy and tolarance. All for the sake of over protectiveness. May the blogger continue writing about anything without fear as long as the truth reveals.
