Newly-married martial arts trainer Shareh Nasrullah Shareh Roselin is relieved to know the person he helped nearly a month ago has returned to work.
On April 13, Shareh had just finished a workout session with some trainees when he came to the aid of a Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Bhd (KDEB) Waste Management grasscutter who was attacked by four drunkards near a gazebo at the Taman Tasik Tambahan recreation park in Ampang, as reported by Twentytwo13.
Shareh was hit in the face with a bottle and suffered deep cuts on his right cheek and chin – three weeks before marrying Siti Nor Syazwan Mohd Sufiee. Shareh and Siti Nor Syazwan tied the knot on May 4.
“My big day was just weeks away but I didn’t think about it. All that mattered was helping someone in need,” said Shareh, who was given a token of appreciation for his bravery during KDEB Waste Management’s Iftar function in Shah Alam yesterday.
“I’m so happy to learn the employee (Myanmar-national Nujumuddin Faizal Ahmad) is all right and has resumed working. I would like to thank KDEB Waste Management for this token of appreciation … maybe it is my ‘rezeki kahwin’ (marriage fortune).
“I would also like to thank Twentytwo13 for carrying the news but really, I didn’t do this for the publicity. I just wanted to help a fellow human being.”
Shareh, who has competed in several Muay Thai and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competitions in Malaysia and abroad, said it is important for the public to learn self-defence but added it is best to avoid confrontations.
“Martial arts have many components. It is not about hitting or striking someone. It teaches discipline.”
KDEB Waste Management general manager Ramli Mohd Tahir thanked Shareh for his “noble” deed.
“Not many people would come to the aid of strangers, more so general workers collecting waste and those who clean our surroundings.
“What Shareh did was very noble as he didn’t have a second thought about helping.”
“Nujumuddin was just doing his job when he was attacked. Thankfully, he didn’t suffer any serious injury,” said Ramli.
He said the police have arrested those involved and hopes “nothing like this happens again”.
“We gave Nujumuddin the best care possible and he is now back working.”
Separately, 76 orphan and underprivileged children from Setia Alam, Hulu Selangor dan Kota Damansara joined 800 KDEB Waste Management staff for the breaking of fast yesterday.
Ramli said the event was part of its corporate social responsibility programme.
