OUR four commuter ride from the station to Kuala Lumpur UKM Bangi. Who would have thought that each coach holiday packed with passengers. So we had to stand in a huddle.
Not only the coaches met many fine men and nations, big bags and all sorts of things to add another volume of public transport. Faces of most foreigners are found. Perhaps because of public holidays, they took the opportunity to meet friends and relatives in the capital.
One of my friends looked nervous. He is flanked how male passengers and one of them stood at a distance of nearly meets the nose with your friends.
Toleh either right or left, his head must compete with the passengers around him. The three of us who stood not far from the friends that feel strange and wondered why he was so nervous. To approach it is difficult and there is no room want to insert. Upon arrival at the Mid Valley station we berasak-Asak down, so forget what that one's story. Once we move across a commuter waiting for friends to get down on the platform, she suddenly sat down to look at us with a face-cengang stunned.
I quickly reach the mobile phone and contacted him asking why he did not go down. With the voices of anger and not satisfied, the friends left in the car was clear. He said he had digesel by male passengers who stand closest to it. At first she did not realize. Both hands of the man hanging on the tool holder and the face is very simply. But he felt something poke back. Hard to say not too hard to say not too soft, the friend said. When commuter dibrek, touch it is getting stronger cause he turned slightly to see what and who got a savage poke at the back.
Mad ...'' you know men are crazy tu, he let us out and casually Anunya gesel on my body,''he said with a tone of indignation.
Treated heart aches so, it's hard stepping away satisfied that the perpetrator has no morals along the way to arrive at the Mid Valley. As the angry, hurt and angry, he continues to grab the empty seats as many passengers at the station. When he does not care about anyone else so he would forget us down there.
So after they saw the three of us lined the platform he was shocked but could not do anything because commuters already moved to leave the station. Finally he had to take a taxi from KL Sentral station to Mid Valley because of fear that if the commuter digesel.
What's passed is just a piece of the experience of hundreds or perhaps thousands of women who use public transport. Raba, the details of your pocket, obscene acts like a must every time you use public transport, including taxis. Opportunity in the crowded commuter, LRT and buses are like a 'blessing' to the man who wants to find favor with the way immoral.
Most annoying is the face of uncivilized and barbaric attitude to protect the innocent people that chose to violate the dignity of women.
Because it measures Berhad Malayan Railway (KTMB) has introduced special trains women to be a mercy to the people Eve is 60 per cent of service users. Dicili just want the mouth-mouth is not appropriate to formulate measures and cause discomfort. There also consider it a backward step.
Sometimes the people we love to give opinions without thinking or do research first. Malaysia is not the first country to do so.
Manila Light Rail Transit Authority for example, has introduced a special women's coach since 2002 to address the problem of sexual harassment in public transport.
While Tokyo became the first city in Japan show concern for women passengers in 2000, followed by Osaka and Nagoya.
Pakistan Railways has also introduced special trains for passengers on routes of women in conjunction with the launch of Rawalpindi and Karachi Sir Syed Express service.
Other countries are taking similar measures are Iran, India and Egypt.
The main reason is the increasing cases of sexual harassment by a male passenger on a woman passenger.
What's more sexual harassment is very difficult to prove, especially in our crowded in the wagon some people who take advantage of 'touch and go'.
It is unknown what kind of satisfaction enjoyed by the male passengers who took the opportunity to touch a woman in a hurry.
Thus, women must hope that the introduction of women's coaches with the theme of the KTM Ladies Only At All Times would be followed by other transport operators, such as light rail transit (LRT).
But what is more important, if there are women who are victims of 'touch and go' when boarding the bus, commuter train or the LRT, so do not just remain silent. Create something, screaming if necessary.
