RED & YELLOW ROSES DAY TRAGEDY


Police had used tear-gas and acid laced water cannons on the Malaysian Indian crowd that had gathered at some distance away from Parliament House to hand over red and yellow roses to the caretaker Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi so that his government will immediately implement programmes to uplift their community and request for the immediate release of their 'heroes' HINDRAF 5 from Kamunting.

Despite many children were at the crowd, the police action were highly criticized.

It was also reported that at least 100 Indians have been arrested from this 'illegal' peaceful protest.

It is for sure that the majority of the Indian will not vote for the Barisan Nasional this coming polls and since their votes are crucial at certain electoral areas, the Barisan Nasional will face a extremely tough challenge to win these seats.

The uncaring attitude of the Barisan Nasional leaders and the police have been strongly criticized.
