After the pillows, 10,000 roses

Flower power. 10,000 supporters of Hindraf are expected to present red and yellow roses to the Prime Minister in conjunction with Valentine's Day next month. P. Waytha Moorty, the self-exiled Hindraf leader, said in a press release from London the red rose signifies "love" and Hindraf's "peaceful struggle" while yellow signifies its demand for justice for the 5 Hindraf leaders detained under ISA for their role in the 25 Nov 2007 rally.

Hindraf has asked its supporters to bring the roses to the Parliament House on 16 Feb 2008 at 11 am, and has asked the PM to come in person to accept the gesture.

The full Hindraf press statement HERE.

  1. This idea of the HINDRAF just dosent click with the concept of valentines day.

    On another note, I have always wondered why is it that all these processions and demonstrations were carried out in KL or cities in general? Why not have it in hutan somewhere like taman negara ke, or genting setapah ke or anywhere la far far away from civilisation so that the rest of us citizens can do our daily chores/stuffs and obligations as usual and with no problems and comlications?

    Pls enlighten me on this cause I really am interested to know

    Rocky Bro,

    1. Finally HINDRAF have their own website after so long fighting for their rights.

    After all press conferences
    illegal Rallies, memorandums, going in & out of the police station & Bukit Aman, ISA detention at kamnunting...bla bla.

    Funny is it ? why took so long.

    2. How much KJ give them the money to set up their spanking new website and who's operating on their behalf.

  8. These monkeys are trying to congest our entry to Kuala Lumpur again to enjoy our weekend. Why don't they go to Sri Perdana? Firstly, it's way out, secondly, the PM won't have to come to town.

    Flowers.....these fools have nothing better to do on a Sturday than give the PM flowers. What a bunch of imbeciles.

  9. Bro,

    Saya tidak mahu berpolitik di sini. Tetapi saya ingin melihat Moorty juga hadir dan membawa bunga ros untuk dipersembahkan kepada Perdana Menteri. Sekiranya beliau tidak hadir, jelas beliau mempergunakan orang lain untuk kepentingan politik beliau.

    As fa as I can gather, HINDRAF is not a recognized association and it is more like Hamas, AlQaeda and other illegal outfits out to sideline an orderly society using religion as the feedstock to fuel emotion. Don't think we should really bother with them or even talk to them. If we talk to them, even at an unofficial level, it is tantamount to recognizing their legitimacy.

  12. Thats better than doing street demonstrations!

    So, some has send him pillows. Hindraf plan to send red roses. Bet there are those thinking of sending him pampers, sleep goggles, yellow whatever, etc.

    I think he needs lots of books on self improvement, motivation, reading and writing, proper healthcare, how tos, childcare, keeping pets (ie son in law) ....(do continue what gifts to give PM).

  13. thanks LAMAN, for the link to this story:

    ATHENS, Greece, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Doctors say a former top-ranking Greek official who jumped from his fourth-floor apartment remains hospitalized but is showing improvement.

    Christos Zachopoulos, the former Culture Ministry general secretary, broke his legs, arms, ribs and a shoulder in the fall two weeks ago, but his spine was not injured, Kathimerini reported Saturday.

    Zachopoulos is opening his eyes and reacting to pain and noise -- signs he is recovering, said his doctors at Evangelismos Hospital in Athens.

    Meanwhile, a magistrate is investigating allegations Zachopoulos was being blackmailed by Evi Tsekou, his former assistant at the ministry, Athens News Agency reported Saturday.

    Tsekou initially denied having an affair with Zachopoulos, even after a DVD surfaced allegedly showing the pair having sex, ANA reported. Tsekou's attorneys now say she is ready to admit to the affair but continues to deny she ever tried to blackmail Zachopoulos, who is married, with the DVD.

    10,000 red and yellow roses? Sh-t!!! Now the price will go through the roof for Valentine's Day.

    Why don't they just get 10,000 birds (preferably black crows) and release them all in Putrajaya? More meaningful and effective.

  21. 10,000 roses
    10,000 people
    Trying to say something
    Marginalized citizens need help
    The government will not allow it
    Walking leisurely in Parliament House

    There is no Parliament sitting
    Are they giving to an empty ghost?
    You know the police will be waiting
    The water cannon tank ready
    Batons and shields to defend
    On the walk by the marginalized people

    Why 10,000 roses?
    A pick from the scriptures…..
    It is better the leaders educate the masses
    Take it out on the ballot boxes

    Use the money
    To go preaching to the marginalized citizens
    Tell them to use the ballot boxes
    Change the BN
    Change their fortunes

    If they want to do it
    March to his resident
    Swarm his place
    Sing him Happy Valentine

    Or wait for open houses
    March right to him
    He will not run away
    He has to welcome the people

    Think about it
    Find ways to get to him
    Personally
    Don’t think about his aides
    They just throw it away

    I suspect this Hindu Revivalism (around the world) is also backed by CIA esp. to buat kacau in Muslim dominant countries.Apa lagi tak cukup? The statistics shows that the Indians have better lives than most Malays...

    On the visa issue (foreign priests especially Hindu priests are denied renewal of visas): getting a visa is not a right..it's a privilege..other Embassies have been practising this..if they feel a person or a group would be a threat to a nation, visa is not given.

    Nice gesture and one I wish they did on Nov 25.

    Hardly original though...

    The Hindraf machans just got wind of the Gandhigiri movement that spurred the Indian diaspora to action in other countries lately, I guess.

    They did this in the US last year.
    check this out.
    http://www.rediff.com/news/2007/jul/11us1.htm

    And FYI, Gandhigiri was a revival of Gandhian values in the pop sense, made popular by Bollywood in the form of the Sanjay Dutt comedy. Lage Raho Munnabhai.

    Proves one thing though. My fellow Indians can be counted on for drama.

    I agree with flowers. But roses on Valentine's Day?

    Macha, try other flowers laa. We are downtrodden rite? Roses are expensive on Valentine's Day laa.

    And to those commenters who see fit to ridicule all things Hindraf, I have this to say:

    Their modus operandi left a ridiculous lot to be desired last year. That doesn't mean the message shud be ignored.

    The failure of the Indian community leaders led to this.

    And let's not kid ourselves, discrimination IS institutionalised here.

    Giving roses to umnoputra jihadists has as much effect as giving condomns to repeat sex offenders. Corrupt semi-illiterate regimes do not have the capacity nor do they care to decode what such symbols mean.

    It is liken to giving Mat-Rempits a candy bar and hope that they will stop terrorising motorists and attacking the police.

    My hope is that the movement will continue to stand firm against the continued human rights violations against them and the unresolved deaths and killings of Indians in prison as well as the Kampong Medan slaughter.

    Continue to seek a just solution to these and other racist and ethnic violations and marginalisation against the Indian community. Refuse to give up till those responsible for the Hindu temple demolitions as well as Christian church demolitions are brought to justice.

    Stand firm and let your voices be heard. Refuse to be intimidated by the ISA detentions, allegations and media onslaught. No regime ever changed its corrupt practices without people willing to stand against its schemes.

    The world is watching. And the jihadists know that their continued propaganda and the spin doctors can only go so far before they drown in their own slimy pits.

    The only reason for evil regimes to prevail is for good men and women to do nothing.

    10,000 roses during Valentine's Day?? Aren't the Hindraf trying to tell us that the Indian are poor due to being marginalize by the government yet they can spend so much money on unnecessary stuffs?

    Do they know how much a rose cost during Valentine's Day?? Are they trying to feed the UMNO putera and making them fatter?

    Instead of wasting that money on buying roses, why not donate it to a deserving Malaysian Indian child who's just about to start schooling? By the way , who is sponsoring Mr Moorty's self imposed exile in London? And London is a costly place to live in: ask any Brit. As for Valentine's Day, it's abig rip-off, by rose sellers and card makers. Just when and why do Malaysian Malays, Chinese and Indians celebrate Valentine's Day?

Baik korang simpan duit dan tolong kaum india yang korang claim masih ramai yang susah dan miskin. Dah bodoh tu sudah la lar janganla pulak tunjuk kebodohan melampau. Jangan jadi macam celaka hidup menyusahkan orang ramai. kalau tak suka jadi warga negara baik berambus saja ke negara lain. Polis pun banyak tugas lain lagi yang perlu buat. Orang lain pun nak juga juga jalanraya untuk keperluan keluarga. Jangan orang ramai sumpah puak hindraf ni jadi babi. Hidup tak tahu untung.

    Now they already became the manace & laughing stock of Malaysia..

    10,000 expensive roses from the so-called poor & marginalized??

    The only interpretation of this symbolic gesture is best described as A TOTALLY STUPID ACTIONS BY A BUNCH OF IDIOTS WHO THINK THEY ARE SO SMART AND EXPECTING A GOOD STUPID RESULT FOR EXCHANGE FOR THE SO-CALLED SAKE OF PEOPLE WHO CANNOT AFFORD TO LIVE & MANAGED THEIR OWN LIFE OTHER THAN BLAMING EVERYBODY (READ AS THE MALAYS & MUSLIMS)AROUND THEM AS THIER SOLE CAUSES OF MISFORTUNES !

    I sense the dark force already exponentially disintegrating whatever leftover neurons in these Hindraf species brain proportional to real time.. At this kind of rate, the longer we let these Hindraf pursue their fight, the worst totally stupid things will soon excreted & destroy Malaysia..The Malays will never let Hindraf destroy this country because they do not have other place to run & seek refugees like Tamil Nadhu, Queen of England, USA or where ever!

    I can never imagine in my life how lawyers can turn out to be so low, stupid & coward..or maybe these Hindraf blood trait only good at twisting facts by the tongue & try to show off to the rest of the world...Hindraf lawyers already putting these stupidity to real result insulting the barrister chamber integrity. Well done Hindraf lawyers! hahahha...
