Removable of post on the late Aleem Ibrahim

 Dear Readers,

I've removed the post on Aleem at the request of his family through a third party. Notwithstanding the removal of the post, I stand by what I've stated in my blog post to be true. However, I would like to extend my sincere apology if the post was deemed offensive and hurtful.

That was nice of you to remove the article. Thank you Bohtong.

The impossibility of undoing damage done by harmful gossip is underscored in a Hasidic tale about a man who went through his community slandering the rabbi.

One day, feeling remorseful, he begged the rabbi for forgiveness and said he was willing to do penance. The rabbi told him to take several feather pillows, cut them open, and scatter the feathers to the winds. The man did so, but when he returned to tell the rabbi that he had fulfilled his request, he was told, “Now go and gather all the feathers.”
The man protested, “But that is impossible.”

“Of course it is. And though you may sincerely regret the evil you have done and truly desire to correct it, it is as impossible to repair the damage done by your words as it will be to recover the feathers.”

As a blogger you are a gentleman to accede to his family members' request to delete the post. It is your job, no doubt, to blog but your action shows you are gracious!

Nice? Nice? Are you for real? Boh Tong should NEVER have written that spiteful piece of trash in the first place. Boh Tong is an example of how older people do not become wise but in fact, they are just as spiteful and ridiculous as they were as children. Time to grow up Boh Tong!

Gentlemen don't write trash to begin with.

BT: The anonymous above me. Well now you know that I am not afraid to publish your comments. Seriously, my post on that gentleman was not because I am spiteful or evil. As a blogger, my task is to post things that are truthful and honest for my readers. In fact, you are more evil and out to discredit me. Have I done you any wrong? As a matter of fact, I know who you are. His family through a 3rd party has asked me in a nice way to remove the post and here you are making a big fuss!

So you are daring BT to publish your comment but you commented under the anonymous factor. Hey this is not steady isn't it.
Just bec you stay anonymous you dare to show gutsy "dare" challenge.
Ask u to put your identity you keep quiet. No more comment.
