PETALING JAYA - Angry netizens have slammed the two Malaysian Islamic State fighters involved in a video of a beheading in Syria, with some terming them a disgrace to Malaysia and mankind.
On Facebook, Tamid Imran denounced the act by Muhamad Wanndy Muhamad Jedi, 25, and Mohd Faris Anuar, 20, as sheer stupidity.
"Man killed and they are so proud until they pose for a picture. Which Nabi taught this?" he asked.
Others such as Mark David were furious that some individuals on Muhamad Wanndy's Facebook page openly supported the barbaric beheading of the Syrian man.
The Feb 22 video, believed to have been filmed by Mohd Faris Anuar, was uploaded onto the Facebook account of Abu Hamzah Al Fateh, which is owned by the Malacca native.
Anne Jan said she hoped the police were monitoring the "sickos" who encouraged the spread of IS ideology here round the clock before more damage was caused to society.
"This not naughty or bad. This has entered the boundary of pure hardcore evil, these kids will never be the same again… they are broken," she added.
Loo Beng Siew hoped the two would never find their way back to Malaysia as they were a threat to national security.
To Masni Mustafa, it was "crazy" that a person could hurt another, and she wondered how IS managed to influence others to sacrifice the comforts of home to kill people in a foreign land.
"Are these people being drugged or brainwashed or are they so poor that they become paid soldiers? What drives these people to kill?" she asked.
Sheetal Ganeeson said: "Beheading and enjoying it means this guys are all sick, misled!"
Anthony George mourned the waste of life and expressed his pity for the slain.
"How will war or conflict end if everyday got new enrolment (into IS)?" he asked.
On Twitter, user @RiseTheLycans lambasted the two Malaysians for causing "such embarrassment to my fellow countrymen".
Fellow tweeter @FalisaAbuBakar expressed concern that because of the "stupid jokers", Malaysians would face strict visa applications instead of being free to travel.
"Which heaven are you chasing?" she asked.
