The Deputy Home Minister Datuk Abu Seman Yusop rightly visited the home of family of Aminulrasyid who was shot dead by the police about two weeks ago BH 7/5/10 page 8 and SH 7/5/10 page N6).
Two top leaders each from PKR, DAP and PAS showed similar care and attention in the case of Teoh Beng Hock who was killed in the MACC custody.
This would send the right signals to the police that they cannot take the law into their own hands and cannot go on with the police above the law mindset.
But in this UMNOs’ One Malay-sia we regret to note that in Malaysia’s 53 year old history since independence in 1957 no UMNO Deputy Minister has ever visited any Indian family of an Indian victim shot dead by the police or who was killed in police custody. Except for the case of A. Kugan where there was political mileage to be made when some 5,000 Hindraf Makkal Sakthi supporters were at his funeral procession and the media attention, there is no history of any top PKR, DAP or PAS tuans or towkays who had visited any of the aforesaid Indian victims family.
Had this been done the “blood letting” of hundreds if not thousands of those majority Indian victims and their families could have been avoided. But because the victims are merely the Indians, both UMNO and also PKR, DAP and PAS does not care. This level of racism does not happen in any other part of the world except in Malaysia. But when we point out and highlight this racism UMNO brands us as terrorists while even the PKR Supremo accuse us of having a racist agenda.
But then this is UMNOs’ One Malay-sia and PKR, DAP and PAS’ brand of multi-racialism.
