The Najib Administration is now suing Bersih 3.0 chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan for RM122,000 in special damages caused during the Bersih 3.0 protest on April 28.
However, it hasn't named National Laureate Samad Said, the co-chairperson of Bersih, 3.0 in the suit.
I mentioned in a previous post Prelude to final defence? that Malaysiakini columnist Mariam Mokhtar pointed out:
... more worrying than the theatrical harassment of Ambiga was the racial undertones where the 'people' organizing the harassments of Ambiga, whether on her role as Bersih leader or her support of LGBT movement, were careful not to harass Berish's Samad Said (national laureate) or LGBT supporter Marina Mahathir ...
The government's demon-ization of an Indian Malaysian while 'acting dunno' about well-known Malay Malaysian personalities like Samad Said and Marina Mahathir is not only racist but cowardly.
But then, racists are known to be cowards.
