Indians - no power in M'sia? Siapa cakap?
Fer Fook's Sake has, on more than one occasion, hinted that the Indian population has been extremely marginalised in this country. They are a people without a voice; third class citizens devoid of any semblance of power etc (MIC is a fooking toothless organisation & Samy is just a token figure on the cabinet who's sole purpose is to make everyone else laugh with his toupe & ill-fitting designer suits).
Just last month, huge groups of Indians gathered peacefully at Putrajaya to voice their concern over their present status & somewhat bleak future (although the crowds were substantial, none of the local media deemed it important enough to carry the story).
But then this little gem (above) of a video appears on youtube. In it senior lawyer Datuk VK Lingam is (allegedly) instructing the Chief Justice Tan Sri Ahmad Fairuz over the phone on who to appoint as judges. Former DPM Anwar Ibrahim has said this conversation (allegedly) took place in 2002 and he is calling fer an investigation (yeah, right . . . they gonna listen to you, a disgraced sodomite).
But my point is that Fer Fook's Sake has been wrong to undermine the Macha's political connections & this video is ample proof of a Macha pulling some seriously well-connected strings. I mean to see a Macha instructing the CJ on judicial appointments just filled me bosom (& very Indian potbelly) with pride. 'Caya la!
On the surface, Indians are just a minority with an ever receding voice in the corridors of power. Behind the scenes, one phone call & the judiciary is in the pocket. Power or what!?! Respect la, Macha . . .
PS: Ironically , many in the legal profession have been quietly grumbling bout the majority of appointments being Malays - "where are all the Indian judges?". But now you know who is the puppet master . . . allegedly . . .
