"Hindraf Rally Politically Motivated." - How True Is This Najib Statement?

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today the illegal rally staged by the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) in Kuala Lumpur yesterday was evidently 'politically motivated'.

Whatever the motive, he added, the government would not be afraid of facing it.

"We will meet the challenge. We will not back down from a political challenge," he told reporters when asked whether the gathering posed a challenge to the Barisan Nasional (BN) government.

Najib, who is also BN deputy chairman, said that if the BN government had been discriminatory in its policies against the Indian community as claimed by Hindraf, the Indian community would not have supported the BN and the coalition would not have achieved its massive electoral victories.

"Now, all of a sudden, they (Hindraf) want to raise the issue (of alleged marginalisation). Their (Hindraf's) intention is politically motivated," he said after taking delivery of three Dauphin AS365 N3 helicopters from Eurocopter Malaysia for the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) in Subang near here.

Thousands of Hindraf sympathisers gathered in the heart of Kuala Lumpur yesterday to support the handing over of a petition to the British High Commission asking Queen Elizabeth II to appoint a Queen's counsel to represent the Indian community in a class action suit against the British Government for bringing Indians as indentured labourers to then Malaya and exploiting them.

Hindraf has filed a US$4-trillion (RM13.5 trillion) suit in London claiming that the British were to blame for the marginalization of Indians in Malaysia.

Police dispersed the Hindraf supporters with the use of tear gas and water cannons at the junction of Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Ampang, preventing them from getting to the British High Commission in Jalan Ampang.

Some of the supporters turned violent and damaged public property and hurled stones and other objects at the police, injuring several policemen. Over 130 people were arrested.

Asked about the complaints by traders that their business was disrupted by the gathering, Najib said such gatherings would definitely have an adverse impact on the economy and disrupt the daily life of the people.

"The people will have to put up with roadblocks and such, which had resulted in bad traffic congestion over the last three days," he said. (Bernama)

***** I've already said my piece in the previous posts in this blog. But what do you think? Is Najib right when he alludes to a political motive behind the Hindraf rally? Or is it a protest by discriminated, marginalised and impoverished Malaysian citizens whose dilemma the rest of the world fully knows and acknowledges, with the exception of Umno leaders and their cronies?

But one thing I'm sure of is that not even one of these conscienceless political Umno pirates infesting our nation will accept responsibility for the state of utter disrepair our perpaduan is in. They will continue with their empty sloganeering and lofty speeches. For in their convoluted greedy mind they can do no wrong. It is a trait they share with dictators and mad men through the ages.

Hindraft knew that it could not get a sen from British government. I agree they should have flown thier representatives to London and deliver thier protest note,petition, suit whatever direct to her Majesty Queen E .
Dissatisfaction had been expressed to the British government but indirectly UMNO and BN got the greater part of the hammering.The malays too got fair amount of bashing. I believe, as usual they need to pushed a little harder before they retaliate. Queen E is less bothered
or concerned about the demolished Hindu tample.

No where else but only in India and Malaysia that Hindus can build tamples wherever they pleased and the authority should not be in the way. If you do then you deemed to marginalising them.
Everyone in thier right sense of mind will not refute that Hindraf action had been more than just politically motivated. They are out to create chaotic and civil commotion.
Situation is indeed heated up and slowly boiling, soon thre'll be free for all. I hope this does not happen.Najib's staement is more than correct. If not true ask Samy, MIC politicians and the many Indian schlolars and tycoons in Malaysia.

And I suppose the explosive abduction and murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu was not politically instigated? Tell that to the pigeons. Obviously, Malaysian voters have outgrown their government. Try telling your 25-year-old daughter to stay home and watch TV on Friday night.

Well, the GE is just around the corner. If BN does not cheat then we can prove he was wrong.

The only problem I can see is that the multiracial opposition parties do not stand in all constituencies. If PAS stands in a particular place, then there is no choice as I am afraid that PAS is worst than BN with their mullahs. What can you expect? They are probably 100% malays who is well addicted to freebies over the years!!!!

I just hope that PKR and DAP stand in more places rather than roping in PAS with them.
