SINGAPORE – Mr Muhammad Hanafie Ali Mahmood, 25, had only one thing on his mind when he went up to stop a commuter from bullying another man in the MRT – to prevent a fight from erupting.

“I was worried that the bully would lay hands on the man,” Mr Hanafie said.

Recounting the incident to reporters at Chong Pang Community Club on Wednesday, Mr Hanafie, who is unemployed, said he was riding the North South Line train from Orchard at about 11pm last Tuesday with his girlfriend, Ms Nabilah Nasser, 23, when a man started to lash out at another man in the train carriage.

The two men had boarded the train at the Bishan station.

In a video recording of the incident filmed by Ms Nasser, a commuter could be seen scolding and threatening a younger man who was wearing an expletive-bearing t-shirt that said ‘I’m F–king Special’.

When the train reached Ang Mo Kio station, the aggressor threatened to throw the victim out of the train. In the video, he could be heard saying: “Are you getting off? If not, I’m going to throw you off.”

It was at this point that Mr Hanafie, who also goes by the nickname Elfy, decided to intervene.

“It just doesn’t make sense. The man kept scolding the victim about his t-shirt,” he said, adding that the victim had kept quiet and avoided eye contact with the aggressor to not provoke him.

The victim, who looked like he was in his early 20s, was smaller than his aggressor. The young man was also wearing his backpack in front and the words on his shirt could not be clearly seen, added Mr Hanafie.

The identities of the victim and aggressor are not known.

Mr Hanafie was speaking to reporters at an iftar session at the community club with young professionals and students.

Embedded image permalink
Minister for Law K. Shanmugam took to social media on Tuesday (July 14) to denounce the behaviour of a man who was caught on camera threatening a teenager in a crowded MRT train. The man had berated the teen loudly for more than two minutes after having taken offence at his T-shirt, which contained vulgarities. Mr Shanmugam posted: “Unacceptable bullying conduct. People like this are sick in their mind. And try and take it out on others. I hope his employer will take some action, against him – he brings his organisation into disrepute.”

Came across this video. Unacceptable bullying conduct. People like this are sick in their mind. And try and take it out on others. I hope his employer will take some action, against him – he brings his organisation into disrepute. Good to see someone, in this case Elfy standing up to this bully. His comments on the incident, that we are a multiracial society that should respect each other, are wise. Elfy’s comments can be seen in the post link below.…/man-who-stood-up-to-agg…

Wise words from macho bro who stood up to aggressive commuter threatening teen on train

Embedded image permalink

… The man who stood up to the unreasonable commuter who was threatening a teen on an MRT train has thanked the public for their support and well wishes. On Friday (Jul 10), Stomper Nabilah alerted Stomp to an old man who verbally abused a teenager for wearing a shirt with offensive words in a packed MRT train. A passenger by the name of Elfy then confronted the old man for his aggressive behaviour. Both men left the train thereafter. Following the incident, Elfy has thanked those who have supported him via his Facebook page.

Hello friends! Thank you for supporting my video. And to my friend Elfy, I’am proud of u for standing up against the big bully. I’ve been receiving thousands of msgs in my Facebook wanting to know what actually happened after the Ang Moh exited the train. The Police officers who appeared to be from the Special Operations Command did was asking him to calm down and thats it. When we tried to show what actually happened as a prove, they refused to watch. They allow the angry old man to take the same train together with us. LOL. But after the police left, the old man walk away…. — with Loony Gates.

    I salute you, Hanafie to stand up for a fellow Singaporean. Wondering why police did not take action.

    You are the hero. As for the police I think the minister should come out to explain why the police should casually let that bloody fat ang mo go. If he had threaten another person is that not an offence committed.?
