(I have been tagged but the thing is, creativity juice is not flowing last few days but will try to write something over the weekends (ya, have given this “excuse” many times over, he he) and true, BJ can spell something else too)

So, Hindraf has been banned…
The “Botak” thinks he has made a smart move – it is either this or invoking the ISA or if everything fails, setting roadblocks all over city and blame it on Hindraf. ISA these days is a “hot” item and the Government had enough of cheap publicity – so banning is the 1st choice for now. The Botak said:-
“The ministry found the organisation’s activities contravened the Societies Act 1966 and if left unchecked, the organisation could pose a threat to public order, peace, security and morality in Malaysia,” he said, adding that even the sovereignty of the country and prevailing racial harmony would be jeopardised.
My, my…might words from the Botak fellow. Then again, we ask this question – which politicians is better off in morality and maintaining racial harmony? Better than Hindraf that is. Banning does not solve the problem, it aggravates them. It appears now that the Government instead of engaging the issues directly, they chose to sweep them under the carpet with bans and draconian laws like ISA.
To kick in the idiocy further, the Botak also said:-
“The Government’s priority is to protect the security of Malaysians,” he told reporters at his office, here.
Perhaps the Botak did not recall his very statement in Parliament on how a police beat had to be closed because the police are just too scared of the crooks.
What kind of Home Minister, this Botak really is? If the police are scared of the crooks, then what more is expected of common Malaysians who are living and working the same area? Where is the Government’s priority to protect the security of Malaysians?
It looks like we had been banning the wrong things, instead banning organisations like Hindraf which the threat against Malaysia is YET TO BE PROVEN (remember the reckless link with Tamil Ellam by the very same politicians last year), we should ban politicians who don’t do their job well and failed miserably.
Perhaps one hard whack to their buttocks will remind them that Malaysians no longer tolerate craps from the people who been elected by them.
