Malaysian Council for Rehabilitation vice-president Anthony Arokia today slammed able-bodied drivers who park at disabled spots, calling them “Otak kurang upaya” (“disabled minds”), in a pun on Orang Kurang Upaya (disabled person) (OKU).

“Even a VVIP parked his car at an OKU spot recently,” the 65-year-old wheelchair-bound social activist said today, referring to the photo of a black sedan with a minister’s number plate that was parked at a disabled-friendly space.

Facebook and Twitter users would most probably remember the photo, as it went viral just over a month ago.
