A group of stick-wielding youths on motorbikes gate-crashed an Anything But Umno(Abu)-Hindraf forum in Klang last night and disrupted the event.
Check out this Free Malaysia Today video.
Now, you might not agree with Hindraf’s politics (and I have reservations about its political approach and some of its claims), but this kind of disruption is unacceptable.
From the video, it seems clear who the aggressors are. But the police said nothing much really happened, just some pushing and shoving…
The cast of intruders look suspicious. Are they really ‘local residents’ or other parties impersonating local residents to give the impression that there is local opposition to the gathering?
There’s simply no excuse for this kind of loutish behaviour nor should it be allowed to creep into our political culture.
