Animal Rights and Civil Liberties activists met with a few DAP MPs in Parliement on Wednesday the 16th of March. It was not, we hear, a good meeting.
Prominently missing from this not-good meeting was the MCLM. So busy they must be with politics, that they have little time for civil liberties. Nor have they, to our knowledge, bothered to issue a statement on the atrocity of the kitten killing or the despicable behaviour of the DAP politicians involved.
There were five of these MPs including Mr.Kulasegaran, Ms.Chong Eng, Ms.Fong Po Kuan and the MP for Kota Kinabalu, whatever his name is. We are informed that the MP for Kota Kinabalu behaved in ill-manner and was downright rude.
They watched the video of the torture and killing stony-faced and unmoved. One would have expected more of the gentler sex among them, but for them too, it seems, political calculation is all and compassion, long evaporated from their stony hearts. Unless of course, a show of it wins votes.
Only Mr.Kulasegaran, apparently, cringed, while watching the video. But he has made no public statement on the matter, so we will have to assume that he has cast his lot, with the inhumane. In which case, we may take his recent article on the state of the Indians, as so much political poppycock. For right is right, wrong is wrong and wrong must be condemned, whether it is committed by opposing party or your own.
The result of the meeting, as too often are results of meetings with politicians, was nothing. It was a waste of time.
The DAP is unrepentant, and will remain so. Dealing with them is familiarly like dealing with the BN. They ignore, defame and accuse their critics of political motive, just like the BN. And try to justify even the most heinuous acts of their own representatives.
So, we will have to continue to propose our 'Solution to the Opposition Voter's Conundrum' as outlined in earlier post.
While we applaud those untiring defenders of the helpless, led by Ms.Shenaaz Khan in this case, who, the DAP will find, will not give up, until justice is done.
