This corrupted, coward and vicious Malaysian government is so afraid of ordinary people, especially the working class, expressing their discontent through peaceful protests - a democratic right.
The main ruling party, Umno's elite, capitalist leaders who falsely profess themselves to be devoted Muslims have indeed hijacked the religion. Being a Malay myself, I only have contempt for this elite capitalist class of Malay leaders who manipulate the racial-religious capitalist ideology of "Ketuanan Melayu," the Malay-Islamic, racial-religious, male supremacy. It is to brainwash the Malay, Muslim communities to go on supporting them uncritically despite their betrayal of the whole Malay civilisation and Islamic religion!
Ashamedly, despite my high education, my ignorance and uncritical consciousness caused me to fall into the trap of such brainwashing strategies. Almost my whole life, I defended such ideological racial-religious supremacies out of a false sense of loyalty and patriotism. This is why we need to learn, educate ourselves and think critically throughout our lives in order to be a true human being.
Thus, Malaysia and hopefully, global communities should move towards socialist politics, based on true Marxism, not pseudo-socialism like Maoism, Stalinism, Pol Pot-ism and so on, to fight for true social justice for the poor and oppressed from any background, regardless of race, religion and nationality. That is what loyalty and patriotism should be for, for true social justice consciousness and activism that encompasses true equality, true freedom and other universal, secular fundamental human rights principles.
Hopefully, the opposition parties in Malaysia and Hindraf will move away from divisive racial politics towards such socialist one, in order to fight for the oppressed and poor Indian communities.
Furthermore, to fight against the real enemy - the corrupted and greedy criminals from the ruling elite and capitalist classes, be it from Umno, MCA, MIC and so on - although the Umno leaders are the main and most deceitful culprits.
That is what and where opposition parties should be moving towards, a new era of Malaysian politics based fundamentally on true social justice consciousness and activism for the poor and oppressed from all backgrounds and for the preservation of our natural environment. Opposition parties globally also need to be heading towards this, especially against the extremely corrupted and vicious Third World governments and ruling elite, capitalist classes.
