Lulu Doesnt Want This Mother To Shed Tears Of Desparation For Her Son

A few years back, a child drowned in one of the swimming pools in a PJ condominium. What made her death so tragic was that her father and 4 other grown men tried to rescue her, and yet she drowned.
Her leg got caught in one of the pool's suction. Others in the pool noticed her struggling, and went to her rescue. They tried and tried to pull her out, but her leg was caught in the vent, and the suction was too strong. They could not pull her out.
Her father held on to her, still trying to pull her, as she drowned to death.
Her lifeless body was pulled out when someone turned off the main to the whole condo.

if only someone had turned off the pump...
if only the main was turned off earlier...
if only the design of the pool was not such that the suction was so strong...
if only.

like the child's father, this mother is watching desparately as her son is dying before her very own eyes.

She pleads with the authorities to free her son. She is standing by watching helplessly as her son dies. She can't do anything but plead and cry for mercy.
She is not alone in her plea. Hindraf, the opposition and the NGOs have called for his [and the others who make up the Hindraf5] release. Even 3 of the component parties have called for their release.

Lulu hopes the PM would take a break from his politik-ing and get in touch with his human side.
Dont let this be a
if only they had set him free...
if only they kept him in the hospital...
if only they allowed him his medication...
if only they took care of his diet
if only they treated him like a person, a creation of God
if only.

cos by then, this mother's heart would be broken
and many in Malaysia would never ever forgive UMNO, BN and the PM.

Malaysia was very quick to preach when the Americans abused the Iraqi prisoners - isn't this also the same ?

Cakap tak serupa bikin !

They don't need forgiveness. What they need is punishment.

I couldn't agree more with your last statement...'this mother's heart would be broken
and many in Malaysia would never ever forgive UMNO, BN and the PM.'

Whilst they try to fix UMNO and BN, they overlook the straw that might break their back for good. FGS or your own sake, please release all of them. w9

Abdullah Badawi - man of contradiction!

Pak Lah, we can’t make heads or tails of your actions. On one hand, you express your intention to be fair, on the other, you act in a manner that can only be interpreted as arrogant and abusive.

Please allow Uthayakumar to receive proper treatment, instead of just announcing that detainees are never deprived of proper treatment. Your actions will speak more for you than all your words put together.

Please do not be vindictive, do not take out your vengeance out on the Hindraf detainees, even though they may have play a large part in creating the turmoil you are going through now.

It is better to be remembered for compassion and fairness than to be known for cunningness and deviousness.

Badawi needs a blatant lie and anoher rally like on 25th November before he will hear anything about the plight of Uthayakumar's diabitic woes. Today Badawi is going to apologise to Salleh Abbas and the other 5 judges who were suspended/sacked in 1988. Of what use is that when he at the same time does no better than Mahathir by locking up all these under ISA.

PM, make this your day!

PM, make this day a day of double celebrations for the nation - your release of the Hindraft detainees and your apologies to the wronged justices!

Make this day the day you turn Malaysian history around!

what about the unnecessay deaths in NS progam? another young healthy malaysian bite the dust again bringing the total to ONLY 20 since the inception. Why ONLY? coz its just a statistic to the Chairman Lee and the Deputy PM. in the name of national integration ( or cronies' profits?, they have to be sacrificed.
Such deaths are no longer headline news and why. People are getting numb and are expecting such deaths as acceptable?
Chairman Lee and DPM, sleep well coz I hope the innocent young malaysians death will not come to haunt you. Wonder how would you feel when your kids are the same receiving end?
