Although miles away from Malaysia, I feel deeply concerned to see fellow Anak Bangsa Malaysia of Hindu origin being sprayed with chemical laced water and shot at with tear gas cannisters. Indeed, that was most excessive. Malaysians MUST be allowed to gather peacefully as guaranteed under our Constitution and the Human Rights Charter?
The government must immediately act on the plight of ALL poor, oppressed, marginalised, disempowered and disenfrachised communities in this country and heed their desperate cries for help.
“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe”.
I will not debate as to why I strongly advocate for the well being of ALL Anak Bangsa Malaysia particularly those in dire poverty, the downtrodden, subjugated and tyrannized instead of just one particular community. I think Frederick Douglass sums it well when he said:
“I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.”
