So, Hindraf has been banned…
The “Botak” thinks he has made a smart move – it is either this or invoking the ISA or if everything fails, setting roadblocks all over city and blame it on Hindraf. ISA these days is a “hot” item and the Government had enough of cheap publicity – so banning is the 1st choice for now. The Botak said:-
“The ministry found the organisation’s activities contravened the Societies Act 1966 and if left unchecked, the organisation could pose a threat to public order, peace, security and morality in Malaysia,” he said, adding that even the sovereignty of the country and prevailing racial harmony would be jeopardised.
My, my…might words from the Botak fellow. Then again, we ask this question – which politicians is better off in morality and maintaining racial harmony? Better than Hindraf that is. Banning does not solve the problem, it aggravates them. It appears now that the Government instead of engaging the issues directly, they chose to sweep them under the carpet with bans and draconian laws like ISA.
To kick in the idiocy further, the Botak also said:-
“The Government’s priority is to protect the security of Malaysians,” he told reporters at his office, here.
Perhaps the Botak did not recall his very statement in Parliament on how a police beat had to be closed because the police are just too scared of the crooks.
What kind of Home Minister, this Botak really is? If the police are scared of the crooks, then what more is expected of common Malaysians who are living and working the same area? Where is the Government’s priority to protect the security of Malaysians?
It looks like we had been banning the wrong things, instead banning organisations like Hindraf which the threat against Malaysia is YET TO BE PROVEN (remember the reckless link with Tamil Ellam by the very same politicians last year), we should ban politicians who don’t do their job well and failed miserably.
Perhaps one hard whack to their buttocks will remind them that Malaysians no longer tolerate craps from the people who been elected by them.No tags for this post.No tags for this post.
Not sure if this ban make sense as HINDRAF is not a legal organisation in the first place.
As a moderate Indian Malaysian, I don’t agree or support HINDRAF (maybe one of the few Indian who do not support HINDRAF in Malaysia).
No, I’m not a BN Supporter.
The approach, writing and rhetorics incites hatred towards others. They are another organisation hiding behind race, religion, temples and schools. Their arguements are flimsy and does not make much sense.

Hindraf started with a noble intention but by the time it hit the streets, there was some “dilution” to it’s earlier intentions but many still support it because at that time (way before Pakatan Rakyat got a strong foothold in the Parliament), it is the only way the Malaysian Indians were able to voice their concerns (MIC was no where near).
But the fact is from the time Hindraf first organised a rally to hand over it’s concerns to the PM till it got banned, the Government have continued to disregard the reason why Hindraf came into existence in the first place. That is where the Government made a big mistake for Hindraf is going to come back in another form and name but the concerns is still be the same.
they can ban now..but later they can form & come up with diff name..mayb hindrough or any other name..and this wil continue…the stupid gov wil keep on bannin & hindraf wil keep on changin his name & movin towrds..wat they can do ??
Ya Popu…they did not learn anything from their earlier attempt to ban Malaysia Today. By banning Hindraf, what they have done is only to ban the name…the people behind it and the cause is still very much alive
oh ya..the gov can change name too..frm jln alor to jln kejora! how silly..wats gonna make diff now…
