I just want to puke. They were just wanting to present roses to the Prime Minister. They were not carrying offensive weapons. Are Police frightened of roses. This phobia for gatherings is getting out of hand. Police may suddenly use chemical water and tear gas at any gathering in town, particularly Kuala Lumpur.

You know the fear felt by ordinary citizens when a red Police vehicle is seen, the fear they are going to be blessed with laced water and tear gas.

I thought the Police are people’s friends, but it turns out they are our worst enemies. Can you change this concept if there is fear in the minds of the people.

I remember a group presented pillows and bolsters to the Prime Minister which was accepted. Following this can the children be sent out in groups of six and seven to see the Prime Minister and present him anything worthwhile.

Yes Government must clarify.

Why does the Government fear Hindraf so much?

Police fired teargas and chemical-laced water cannons in a bid to disperse some 300 Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) supporters who gathered for a peaceful event in Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur, early this morning.

According to Hindraf coordinator S Thanenthiran, about 200 people have been arrested. Also nabbed was Hindraf’s rose campaign organiser S Manickavasagam.

There were heavy police presence in Jalan Raja Laut. Four water cannon trucks were stationed along the route leading to Parliament.

The Hindraf event was initially planned to be held at the Parliament gates where 200 children were tol gather to hand over roses as a peaceful gesture requesting that Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi heed the group’s 18-point demands.

News that roads leading to Parliament were closed to prevent them from going to Parliament then led them to change the gathering venue to Jalan Raja Laut.
