Hindraf's right struggle, but wrong path

comments         Published     Updated

N Ganesan, replying for Hindraf chief P Waythamoorthy, has succeeded in demonising the good Mariam Mokhtar for daring to question the tactics of Waythamoorthy.

If Hindraf cannot engage in cultured discussion and rebuttals, all of Mariam's comments about Hindraf's desperation and misplaced self-importance will be shown to be true.

And using Mariam to demand answers of Anwar Ibrahim highlights that and Hindraf's impotence and perhaps growing irrelevance.

Hindraf has a serious point in wanting to reverse 50 years of neglect.

However, their's is not the only way.

If they don't realise that and work with those with some common interests, they will destine themselves to oblivion.

If Ganesan's letter is indicative of their thinking, Hindraf is already on that path.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
