Was Siti Kasim right to show her middle finger?

Opinion  |  Mariam Mokhtar

Some people would say that human rights lawyer Siti Kasim was wrong to show her middle finger to the hecklers at a syariah forum she attended. They would explain that it sets a bad example to others. It reveals her vulnerability.

A few people agreed that Siti gave a strong performance, putting forth her arguments in front of a very hostile crowd. She demanded answers which many Malay women would have been too scared to seek. She did well, until the middle finger episode, they said.

So, who are we to judge Siti? We were not in her shoes. How would you have reacted?
