as it is, the elections on Mar 8th was the first time ever the Indian community abandoned Barisan Nasional and voted the opposition.
The community is angry with the lack of progress and even angrier at the detention of the Hindraf5.
But, there is still hope that the government would repent and change their ways. And with that, the support, though not as unwavering as before, would return.
Sad to say, we do not see it happening yet.
The power behind the government aka UMNO is too busy politiking, watching their backs and stabbing each other to care about the matters of the Indian community.
Uthayakumar, one of the Hindraf5, a diabetic, has not been allowed his medication nor a special diet in Kamunting.
Without proper diabetes medication and food, his health began to deteriorate. Diabetics need a special diet and medication to control their sugar level. The sort of food given to Uthaya to feed his hunger was at the same time, poisoning his body.
Uthayakumar was rushed to the Taiping district hospital on Monday afternoon after he became ill. Still weak, he was prematurely discharged back to Kamunting on Friday.
If this continues, if Uthayakumar's diabetic needs are not taken care of, he would be facing
- cardiovascular disease (doubled risk),
- chronic renal failure,
- retinal damage (which can lead to blindness),
- nerve damage (of several kinds),
- microvascular damage, which may cause impotence
- poor healing of wounds, particularly of the feet, can lead to gangrene, which may require amputation.
If/When that happens, Lulu thinks the Indian community would never forgive BN.
And it wont be just the Indian community. Many more Malaysians from all walks of life will find it difficult to vote in an inhuman Barisan Nasional.
Lulu hopes the Prime Minister will be able to see that.
