Baradan Kuppusamy's article Samy gets his way though thought-provoking in certain areas, does seem to condone to caste-based politics which rearing its ugly head and getting bigger and bigger by the day.
He is a veteran journalist and I presume he would have known about the history and background of this despicable thing called caste. He should have, without mincing his words, vociferously reprimanded the lowly breeds who vie against each other with a so-called caste-based support This has split the Indian community for centuries more so in the Indian sub-continent.
Mentioning the redundant one as a 'devar' and another deadwood as a 'kaunder' and fortifying it with a forecast of the number of votes is downright sickening for all Tamil-speaking Malaysians in this age and time. These lowly breeds who try to propel themselves by way of caste differentiation should be discarded as vermin by all right thinking humans.
Please, MIC opportunists, parasites, sycophants whoever you are, let us remain Malaysians with our only link to the Indian sub-continent being vernacular and nothing else.
