Milkman saves the day


Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia | 1 July 2015 | Asia Samachar



A milkman was on the road when he saw a family in distress with a punctured tyre. He rendered assistance to the driver to change the car tyre in the incident at Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.

The car owner’s children and wife watched as they brought out the spare tyre. It was late evening, almost time for the Malay Muslim family to break their fast, or berbuka puasa, as they say in Malay.

The driver later uploaded the kind deed of the milkman, identified as Uncle Jerry, up onto Sukan Star TV, a Facebook page with most postings in Malay.

“Thanks to Uncle Jerry who willingly assisted. He said he felt sorry for us as we were about to break fast,” reads the posting by the Facebook user with the handle Zack Rokocoko.

“He may be of a different faith and religion, but he still rendered assistance,” he adds, in Malay, the national language of Malaysia.

The posting invited many comments.

“I know this uncle…he is indeed a good person,” one quipped.

“Sometimes, the non-Muslims in Malaysia are more Islamic in their actions than the Muslims themselves who are filled with jealousy,” remarked another.

Any knows who’s Uncle Jerry? Do tell. He saved the day for this Malay couple.
