Is Saravanan a bigot, a fool or a slave?

Byron once said: “Those who will not reason are bigots, those who cannot are fools, and those who dare not are slaves.”

Is the MIC Deputy President and Minister for Human Resources, M. Saravanan a bigot, a fool or a slave?

Saravanan should have learnt his earlier lesson on the nation’s labour shortage, but instead, he has like a bull in a china shop, prepared to be a slave to UMNO leaders who are cracking their heads how to demonise the new DAP leadership by declaring that DAP will run the country if Pakatan Harapan wins the 15th general electiom.

Who is Saravanan trying to frighten – the Malays, the Chinese, the Indians, or Malaysians?

First of all, is Saravanan a full-blooded Malaysian – is he Malaysian first and Indian second, or is he Indian first and Malaysian second?

Can Saravanan tell what he has done as Deputy President of MIC to make MIC a Malaysian party instead of a party of the Indians in Malaysia?

One of the problems faced by the new UMNO leadership is how to demonise the new DAP leadership as anti-Malay and anti-Islam. Why is Saravanan trying to help the UMNO leadership to demonise the DAP?

MIC is one of the oldest political parties in Malaysia, going as far back as 1946. What has the MIC leaders, particularly Saravanan, done to make MIC a Malaysian political party?

For Saravanan’s information, there is no dominant party in Pakatan Harapan which is very different from the Barisan Nasional, which is not only UMNO-dominant but practises UMNO political hegemony in Barisan Nasional – which would have caused Tun Sambanthan to turn in his grave.
