TIME FOR HINDRAF TO 'COOL-OFF'

HINDRAF would urgently need to stop any further form of action if they really want to help the Indian community in Malaysia. Their actions have now been seriously considered by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. We need to appreciate their contribution in creating awareness among the leadership that the Indian community had been 'suppressed' for such a long time, even though they had contributed considerably to nation building.

The government will now focus on improving the lives of the Indians, since the Cabinet had ask for a task force to investigate and report to it. Maybe, the leaders who claim to champion for the Indians cause, may have been the 'culprits' and Indians had been given empty promises that their welfare will be looked into. It may be time for these so-called 'champions' to quit and let capable and efficient leaders to undertake this task. We must take into account that Datuk Seri S. SamyVellu had done a lot but the communities expectations are far too great and maybe he must have only help those who are 'close' to him and the MIC. The problem would have lied there.

But whatever the circumstances, the Indians must be happy that their plight is now considered and as usual, nothing could be done overnight.

The Indians had patiently waited all these years, why not give Pah Lah a few more months to overcome most of the displeasure, but all this will only happen if HINDRAF stop immediately any form of action that they have planned.................
