Sun Newspaper Offers to Pay for Sacrifice of 10 Buffaloes to Release Backpackers — 4 Comments

  1. When tourists visit a foreign country, it is incumbent on them to learn some of the culture.

    I don’t believe that these backpackers didn’t know that the mountain was considered sacred, and it’s just stupid that they ignored the guide’s warnings. And, their acts triggered the superstition that they were responsible for an earthquake.

    I don’t believe that any tourist who stomped, spit, or urinated on our beloved flag here would live to go to court. I’m pretty positive that someone would “take them out”.

    These people should be grateful that a 3 month jail term is all they would receive for being so offensive.

    And, the idiots that are trying to barter their release with the sacrifice of animals are dead wrong.

    • Agreed Dee. Both the newspaper and the backpackers have done the wrong thing. The story has moved on and the Malaysian authorities have convicted and sentenced them to a fine and a few days imprisonment (already served) so they are flying home soon with a lesson well learned.
