Hindraf 5 latest Umno bogeyman


A letter from : Paul Warren, Jan 31 via M'Kini

I refer to the letters Uthaya treated worse than terrorist and Uthaya risks heart attack: family.

As much as I sympathise with the position in which P Uthayakumar and his family find themselves in, it has to be said that all this is happening just because Umno needs for this to happen.

Umno has always needed a bogeyman - be it Singapore, the Chinese, a threat to the NEP or the threat of May 13. In their reckoning, these threats have kept the Malay folks united in their support for Umno.

In recent years, the excesses of both Umno’s Khairy Jamaluddin and Hishamuddin Hussein Onn in raising their keris and talking about bathing the streets with the blood of their ‘enemies’ have raised the ire of the Chinese. They know they have overextended themselves in threatening the Chinese.

I suppose Singapore has had enough of being a convenient bogeyman for Umno warlords seeking cheap publicity. This leaves the Indians except that up until Hindraf came along, the Indians - as led by S Samy Vellu - were too docile and submissive to even be seen as challenging Umno Youth's keris.

Hindraf certainly raised a storm on Nov 25. However, although their discontent was directed toward the Umno-led government and leadership, Umno made it look like as though Hindraf was being racist and targeting the Malays.

Somehow, in Umno’s twisted mind, any protest or demonstration against the Umno-led government or its leaders has to be a protest, demonstration and challenge to the entire Malay race. more...
