Another attempt at dividing Malaysians by race: An MIC Youth office bearer has challenged N Surendran to a debate – but his challenge was brushed off by the PKR vice-president who insisted the MIC is “irrelevant”.
“I’m not an Indian leader, I’m a Msian leader,” tweeted Surendran in response to the challenge by MIC Youth secretary P Punithan.
“We wil quote dis into media !” warned Punithan.
“Pls do so,” countered Surendran.
“So u don’t want to debate with MIC? Not willing to accept with the challenge? Open debate. ?? Yes or No??” Punithan pressed on.
“I won’t repeat again, so listen: I’ll debate Umno Ministr/VP, MIC is irrelevant,” said Surendran.
Pakatan leaders should not fall into the BN trap of divide-and-rule. Instead, they should adopt a more inclusive agenda covering the rights of everyone residing in Malaysia including migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers. We are all members of the human family.
