I am in shock at the news of Karpal Singh's untimely demise in a road accident.
I am sure all of us Malaysians are.
You could not find one like him - a brilliant legal eagle and a fearless fighter for justice.
An indefatigable one.
He never gave up even when he was jailed, along with many others, in the now infamous 'Operation Lallang' to silence political dissent by the man who feared those smarter than himself.
Or even after he became wheel-chair bound following an earlier accident.
He was not called the 'Tiger of Jelutong' for nothing.
He was more than a giant among men.
We all mourn his passing.
