Last week, the Umno Barisan Nasional state assembly woman for Sungai Rapat, Perak Hamidah Osman uttered a racial slur against Indians at the state assembly asking the speaker if he saw a snake and a man of a certain community, who he would kill first. In one of the comments I received, someone pointed out that I have not blogged anything about this. Why should I degrade myself to answer to this slur by an ignorant member of the state assembly. Without doubt, I would never condone anyone degrading Indians or Hindus in general. Is there a need for me to put that in writing.
MIC has already reacted to this latest slur on the community, asking the BN government to initiate action against the state assemblywomen. I want to correct a comment, which stated that the MIC did not react to that attack and that only DAP had done so. Please check your facts before commenting on issues as blogs should not be used to mislead the people who read it.
I would go one step further. Sack her. Use her as an example to the other racially motivated MPs from the BN. We don't mind losing another seat in the state assembly of a state we have already lost. The BN must put its foot down and show other Malaysians that it would not tolerate this sort of nonsense. There is no point in saying that the BN uses the multi religious, multi race approach if stern action is not initiated.
