The defence ministry came under a heavy barrage of criticism after a social media posting to gauge opinion on the colour combination of its official website, with users demanding to know if this was the right time to carry out such a survey.

After a huge hue and cry in the comment sections, the posting, published at 3.19pm yesterday, was deleted less than an hour later.

Twitter user Rahmah Ghazali wrote: “People are dropping like flies, management the worst in history.

“And the defence ministry is conducting a poll if the people agree with the colour combination on their website?”

Another user Roman Akramovich@SyedAkramin said: “People are starving, dying.”

eZaL@shahriezalsalim asked the ministry to carry out surveys that will benefit the rakyat. He said the ministry should think for themselves what is best for the public.

On the colour combination, he said: “Think for yourselves. Why the need to ask the public on this?”

Michelle Yesudas wrote: “Why is Mindef Twitter admin asking the most ridiculous question after 100 over deaths. seriously.”

She said the ministry should ask this question once the pandemic was over.

There were also other Twitter users who were furious over the survey after the nation recorded a high of 9,180 cases yesterday.
