This issue was not about the feast. It was a fight that took place among youths and others. For the media to misrepesent the story is very unbecoming because it is sensationalism and it creates hate.

These disorderly behaviour is becoming frequent. The judiciary have to be tough because if they don't then this unacceptable behaviour becomes popular at the detriment of the society.

About a decade and a half ago I was in Court when supporters of "ta'-Istilla" and "ta' L-Ajkla" from Luqa were arraigned before the Magistrate after a feast brawl at their village. They came in laughing and joking, but when the Magistrate started handing down prison sentences the majority of them turned pale and had to be helped to stand. Of course they appealed and the prison sentences were waived but as the Magistrate was reading the sentences.......it was a sight.
