Proves how shallow our graduates really are

I REFER to the Nazi salute (pic) by a graduate of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS).

The German embassy in Kuala Lumpur has condemned it. The admiration for the Nazi salute could have been done without him knowing much about it.

There exists a possibility that the graduate has not heard about the holocaust or understand what it was.

In World War Two, the German people did not accept the Nazi doctrine initially, but with the arrival of Nazis, which instilled fear, torture, starvation and death in people, matters began to change.

Millions of men, women and children were taken to camps in Auschwitz, Belsen, Buchenwald, Dachau and Fossenberg. They were starved, shot, hanged, burnt, killed and tortured. In Auschwitz, three million people were killed.

It is said that absolute evil manifested itself in the Nazi ideology, which caused the destruction of human lives.

By giving a Nazi salute, one endorses an organisation that preached hatred for humans.

In a larger perspective, one also condones hate that appeared in the genocides of Africa, the Cambodian “killing fields”, the death of millions of Tibetans and Chinese during the Cultural Revolution, and the killing of Palestinians.

Going by the Nazi racial ideology, when the graduate performed the salute, he unknowingly insulted everyone at the graduation ceremony as he acknowledged the supremacy of the Aryan race over other races. There is a proper way and channel to fight for the Palestinian cause.

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad fought for the cause but he did not give the Nazi salute at the United Nations. There are many skills the graduate can learn from him.
