Yuktes Vijay : Anwar and Hindraf
My hatred for Anwar is probably well known now. I can categorically state that I hate him more than I hated Maths back in school, and I thought it was never possible.
Anwaristas have claimed and accused me of being bought by BN or an UMNO ploy (a favourite excuse by Pakatan leaders everytime they are caught with their pants down) when I started to write about my hatred for Anwar. Now let me show you why I hate him, with real events that is happening or has happened right in front of our eyes.
In November 2007, Hindraf took the streets to demonstrate their unhappiness with the ruling coalition, Barisan Nasional. Perhaps, rightly so. They were tear gassed, whacked and put into prison by the police. The spirit for a change of fate never wavered though. The Makkal Sakthi cry was echoing loud and wide in Malaysia.
Then, our Anwar comes into the picture. He never went for the rally. Never did anything for Indians while he was the Deputy PM. He shamelessly and Anwaristically (it means being Anwar; Oxford Dictionary kindly take note) went around harping and crying Makkal Sakthi in every ceramah he went to. If you were living under a shell, you would have mistaken the word originated from Anwar himself. Such was his “passion”.
In an interview with Al Jazeera, he supported the Hindraf movements motives and intentions. Oh he did blame UMNO for Hindraf taking the streets too as usual. GE 12 came around and we all know what happened after that. The status quo of Indians remained. In fact, under BN, Selangor state Government had 1 Indian EXCO. Right now, there are none. IF anyone tells me, Xavier is an Indian, you need help.
Temples were still being broken. Buah Pala was destroyed. My query is simple. If a senior lawyer like Karpal could pass a comment that the village would be destroyed over his dead body although he knew the case was in court, God save the legal fraternity. Don’t tell me he was not aware that it is unconstitutional to go against the Court order when he made the promise. Don’t tell me he did not utter such promises to gain votes.
What Anwar did for this poor Indians? He followed Karpals lead. Well, it is a known fact that Anwar is sh*t scared of Karpal. Why do you think Datuk Yusof is Che’Gubard’s lawyer and quite contrarily to what he has been barking to the people, Datuk Yusof is not his lawyer.
It is a known fact Anwar is a “pakai-buang” type of a leader. He knew Hindraf had invoked the sentiments of the oppressed Indians. He capitalized on it. Willy man this chameleon!
But now came the hard part, he had to endorse the blue print. Well Anwar is never known to have a black and white proof for any wrongdoings he has been alleged with. Omega, “terkam” video” , Bersih riot are examples of this. So how could he sign a pledge and risk alienating the votes of other races? He flip flopped and left Hindraf with no choice but to work alongside BN.
So anyone thinking that Hindraf betrayed Indians, you got to really love Anwar to be so close minded. And yes, I hate Anwar.
