MIC must name, expel delegate

I have this message for the MIC: please name the delegate who called for the picture of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad be garlanded with slippers and expel him from the party. His action is far more serious than what Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek did to deserve a sacking from MCA.

I am surprised that until today, three days after the MIC's 63rd AGM where the delegate uttered those derogatory words, he has not been named. This gives the impression that the party is protecting the culprit.

As we know, slippers and brooms are not acceptable in any our cultures. By suggesting that a garland of slippers be placed on the portrait of Dr Mahathir, the delegate has inferred that the former Prime Minister is the lowliest of all Godly creations.

On the contrary, Dr Mahathir is a Statesman who turned Malaysia into a force to be reckoned with. His contributions to country and the developing world is enormous.

I urge MIC to act immediately to show its seriousness in resolving the issue and give the delegate the boot (or slippers).

Agreed. No two ways about this. We all can disagree with each other and air our views, even against someone like Tun M...but it must be done in a civil and disciplined manner. "Slipper garland" is certainly not the way. Quite sad to note that the MIC has come to this level. The ball (or is it the slipper?)is in the president's court.

The delegate has obviously become Samy Vellu's sacrifice. Pity him.
