He said flying the Jalur Gemilang upside down could not be regarded as an act of mischief alone but a despicable one.
Abdullah hoped the police would act on the matter.

He look so handsome with this uniform. He does look a handsome scout.
Anyway, coming back to the upside down flag thing; I'm not sure how it can be evil. I didn't fly it that way; so he is not directing his anger at me. So, I'm not despicable nor disrespectful to him.
Was flying the flag upside down wrong and unlawful? I don't think so; as this is universally accorded as an act to show that a nation is in distress.
I agree with Kickdefella that Malaysia is truly in distress. In what way did I affirmed my opinion?
The cost of living had reached a state of distress. Not me, I can afford another fuel hike of RM0.78. I am a crony, so I'm okay. But millions of Malaysians are feeling the distress; they are struggling to make ends meet and we have a prime minister and a deputy prime minister who responded to our plights by telling the people to "Ubah Gaya Hidup." But their gaya hidup is already rock bottom and their debts due to inflation and rising costs are multiplying. Many are crying: "Macam mana nak ubah lagi? Jual ponggong? Jual darah? Tak da nak ubah lagi. Installment kereta dan rumah dah banyak bulan tak bayar; periuk nasi pun dah kosong; apa lagi nak ubah? selipa dan selimut pun dah gadai."
If the fuel hike isn't bad enough, dear PM, please asked Jeanne to go to the sundry shops and supermarket to check the price of rice, cooking oil, canned food and all other essential goods; the prices had shot up more than 50% and continually inflating. To add more distress, while income are diminishing fast we are further told that the water tariffs and electricity tariffs are rising. Toll rates may be adjusted too.
That's not distressful enough? Well, I could not comprehend how a prime minister could have pronounced that a backside player who had allowed himself to be screwed 8 times without complain, for whatever reason, could be called a victim of abuse and the prime minister had repeatedly said that the law must accord justice to him. If ever the law said that sodomy is unlawful, both players who had spent eight occasions of pleasure must be indicted and charged; it can't be only one. And how is it that a PM who carved the Islam Hadhari explains his controversial moral philosophy with regards to these two Muslims? I am perplexed and distressed by his reasons which is beyond any logical or moral comprehension.
Nurin is dead and that murderer is still at large. Sharlinie has yet to be found. Altantunya's case are getting muddied each passing day, and Balasubramaniam and Dr Mohamed had gone hiding. There's more than four Statutory Declarations made and such instruments are meant to be effective, not subjective. And the police are busy with protecting Saiful and Mat Rempits at Permatang Pauh, while at the same time they are now called to attend to "Evil" bloggers. But the murderers and criminals are out there smiling and planning new jobs. And the steel gratings and drain gratings on the roads and drains had vanished. The burglars could be coming to all homes to collect all the steel and iron gates. We can't ruled out that they would not take the gates at Putrajaya and Istana too.
Aren't we in distress?
I can understand the dilemma and distress the prime minister is going through. He is also busy fighting for his own political survival. His own party members wants him to retire. His deputy is also working hard to allow it to happen while at the same time being empathetic towards him.
Anwar is also giving a lot of problem to him; Anwar keeps telling and professing September 16 and this is surely stressful and causing sleepless nights for our PM (but he still sleeps because he is too tired).
Umno's convention is in December and there's much internal disorders within Umno. Mahathir had been consistent in his call for the PM to step down and Mahathir is still popular and influential.
Recession is arriving and should it reached our shores it could be devastating. The price of food stuff keeps rising; fortunately, crude price is coming down.
Sabah BN partners are giving our PM a hard time. Sarawak keeps inviting PM and DPM over for functions and at each function a billion Ringgit federal development fundings must be pledged. But where to find so much money needed? And BN has still owes RM218mil for election materials since 2004.
It must be extremely stressful, distressful and agonizing for our PM. Many PM in such distressing situation would have been warded into the psychiatric chambers and certifed mad. Fortunately, our PM can still tahan because he has sufficient sleep. But Raja Petra has been causing him consistent nightmares. RPK has intermittently reveals enigmas and progressively reveals new mystics and caused him much miseries.
So, I've decided not to fly the Jalur Gemilang upside down because I do not want to add to the mammoth agonies and miseries of our dear PM. Let's pray for our PM who is suffering psychiatric pains resembling raging infernos. The distress can possibly drive him insane, or, if not, it may drive him to suffer from insane delusion.
Let's pray for our PM and DPM, and let's also pray that the ghost of Altantunya will not disturb him nor disturb his close aide. This is the 7th Chinese calendar month which the Chinese believed is the month when the ghosts go roaming around earth. The Chinese must help burn more incense and hell notes to Altantunya, Nurin and many others whose souls had not reached heaven's gate as yet. Their spirit may still be on earth and we need to take care of them.
Dear PM, I fly the flag for our nation.
Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!
But the true Merdeka is the day when all Malaysians respect each other as Bangsa Malaysia.
