Who or what the hell is Hindraf? One month ago did many people know or care?
But thanks to the UMNO-led government and their too clever by half overreaction, almost everyone now knows who those Hindraf leaders are, what they have been and are fighting for, and is rooting for them – go aneh go, go aka go, go tambi go, and go tangachee go.
Malaysiakini reported the authorities' typical idiotic inflexible response in its unconstitutional denial of Hindraf's wish and application for a permit to protest in front of the British High Commission.
To give even greater prominence to Hindraf's campaign that it could have actually obtained, the police raided the offices of two Hindraf leaders as if they have the X-files. Then, we are told by Malaysiakini today that “the police have arrested three key leaders behind the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) - lawyers P Uthayakumar, P Waythamoorthy and V Ganapathy Rao, just as the movement is preparing for a mass rally this Sunday.”
The police also brought the unsuspecting public’s attention to the Hindraf’s plan to protest by mounting their attention-attracting road blocks and creating the consequential traffic jams.
Haven’t those idiots learnt that is precisely the best way to provide free publicity to a protest rally which it wants suppressed.
What national security would have been jeopardised if the police had allowed an orderly Hindraf protest rally? How many members of the public would have paid special attention to such an event?
PM AAB as the Internal Security Minister has been badly served by his moronic advisors. The Hindraf leaders want the very attention the police are helping them garner. They have already achieved their aim, of attracting both local and international attention.
All we now need for the icing on top of the Hindraf cake would be a bit of tear gas and chemically laced water sprays - yes please.
Thanks once again to the men in blue! Brilliant publicity directors ;-) - they have a future in the ads industry.
