Save Shilpa Lee??

I normally don't write on articles regarding current affairs or political issues but sometimes some of the people in the government pisses me off.

Malaysian newspapers didn't show what a gorgeous girl Sufiah (who now is known as Shilpa Lee) turned out to be as they showed pictures of her when she was young. The UK newspaper portrayed her new look now and I was like....Ooo-La-La...!!

If you didn't know anything about Sufiah Yusof a.k.a. Shilpa Lee, news reported early this month that former child genius Sufiah Yusof is now a prostitute who earns 130 pounds an hour. She used to be a mathem,atical genius. I felt sad when I read about her torturous childhood whereby she spent her days learning, studying, praying and not allowed a normal carefree play around life like other normal children. Personally, I think children are supposed to have a balanced life of playing and studying (I know it's difficult to have equal balances) and not studying and entering university at the age of 12 to 13! In fact, I have read of majority child geniuses end up being pushed too hard and when they reach adulthood, they burn out more quickly than their counterparts.

When Sufiah was about 15 years old and halfway in Oxford Uni, she rebelled against her dad and ended up in foster care for the next 3 years. She tasted freedom and was too busy enjoying her new life to pass her final year in uni. Then it was also during her final year in Uni that she met her husband whom she was married for a year and ended up in a divorce. After that, she worked as an admin clerk only to be approached by a social escort agency. She agreed to be a social escort as she was behind in her rent and credit card bills. Her 1st job netted her 250 pounds and that was her starting point. She was elated with her new job and doesn't view it as dirty. In fact, she has clients buying her expensive stuff such as dresses and bags and she also has a regular clientele. She is doing this voluntarily and actually enjoys having sex with different guys. She describes herself as a student who has 32D boobs, 5.5 feet tall and a size 8 body looking for older matured guys.

This is an excerpt from New Straits Times dated 2nd April 08....

"KUALA LUMPUR: The Prime Minister's Department and the Malaysian Missionary Foundation (Yadim) will try to assist former child mathematics genius Sufiah Yusof, now aged 23 and fending for herself as a prostitute in Salford, Manchester.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Dr Zahid Hamidi said they would help the gifted girl return to the right path through the "Save Sufiah Programme". "The first thing we should try to do is to contact her mother or arrange a meeting with Sufiah to find out the reason she turned to prostitution, offering her services through the Internet, using the name 'Shilpa Lee'," he said.

The "Save Sufiah Programme" is headed by Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Dr Mashitah Ibrahim who will come up with strategies to assist Sufiah."

Only in Malaysia, the government views it as We have to Save Sufiah and even came up with a "Save Sufiah Program". In my head when I am reading it, I am wondering why do they have to save Sufiah? She's not even a Malaysian national anymore. How are they going to save her? Rescue her from England and bring her back to Malaysia and do what? She is so famous already now and how will other people view her if she did go back to being a mathematician? I am wondering if this is just an excuse to travel overseas as the government officers travel funds has been cut?

This article has set me thinking...What do you people think? Does Sufiah need rescuing? She is already 23 years old and no longer a child? To me, we should just let it be. I think the government is better off spending the money they plan to use in the "Save Sufiah Program" to help those needy people in Malaysia first.

Totally agree with you. In my opinion, national pride or self-esteem does explain the 'Save Sufiah Program'.
