I read the news about National Service. The National Service (NS) Department ordered Mr.Lim's child to attend the program. But Parents refused to NS stint after son’s death.
Although they do not blame the authorities for the son’s death, the couple said they could not risk losing Jane. Ricky, 20, had returned after his NS training on Sept 6 and died on Sept 15. The SMK Catholic High student did not complain of any illness or pain prior to his death but he did complain about the camp’s hygiene and yellowish water supply.
I have carried out a survey on this in my blog months ago by have creating a poll in my blog. 87 visitors have voted on the poll entitled “SHOULD GOVERNMENT ABOLISH NATIONAL SERVICE PROGRAM?”. From the result, most of the voters want something to happen on the National service, either to reform or to abolish.
