Like Najis, God is a liar too

God did not fulfil his promise, file a police report

A woman waited patiently to receive RM21 million which she said was promised to her by God. It seemed that the fortune was her birthright and when her patience ran out, she filed a police report recently to claim the amount from the government. In the report, she claimed that since she was born in Malaysia, the government must take the responsibility for the pledge made by the creator. 
Hers was not the only frivolous police report lodged. Recently, a complaint was filed by a 60-year-old Singaporean over a plate of fried rice, which he said was too spicy. The 60-year-old man from Taman Jurong lodged a police report because the nasi goreng kampung he ate at Jalan Bukit Timbalan in Johor Baru was not to his liking. Daily newspapers reported the incident and it went viral on social media. 

Although there is no criminal element or intent in the case of the unhappy diner, police had to initiate a preliminary investigation before classifying the petty complaint as No Offence Disclosed (NOD). 

Just as trivial and also given the NOD stamp was the case involving a Seremban man, who lodged a police report so that he could sue a shop owner over a sweet purchase that left a sour taste.
He said the condensed milk that he bought attracted an army of black ants after leaving it opened on the table. In his report, he said the condensed milk he bought from a certain shop kept attracting ants and he wanted to sue the shop owner for the mess. 

According to the Bukit Aman police headquarters, law enforcers receive 11,000 to 12,000 reports nationwide every day, and they treat every police report made by complainants professionally in accordance with the law. Police are duty-bound to accept all reports, under section 107 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) even if they think the report is frivolous.
