At the end of the day, it is in the hands of the Indians whether they want to do better for themselves and their future generations. Street protests are definitely not the answer.

I don't know until when I want to be neutral on this, the blog world is feeling the after shocks of today's event, more and more Malaysian Indian bloggers are writing about this, I too wish to change the wrong to right - peacefully, but don't provoke our anger and don't test our patience, respect the Hindu religion, respect our basic and constitutional right to practice our religion freely and don't EVER attack our temples. I wonder is this the democracy that the government and its politicians been talking all day and all week. We all wait for you to answer to what happened today.

[Original Post] 1000 years, 150 years....or 50 years. Where are we headed? What happened on Sunday 25th of November is indeed momentous, but whats more interesting is that it's not only the poor Indians or the much stereotyped estate workers who protested, there are professionals from all walks of life. Every Malaysian Indian out there must have felt the pain of the protesters. Does the feeling of being suppressed so evident that we Indians are willing to do anything, or do we think that we have the moral rights to do this so that our children and the generations to come will get the rights they deserve? Too many questions, but now many solutions.
It's now in the hands of the authorities to figure out a way to address this problem plaguing the community and not simply sweep it aside as an isolated case. The repercussions might be drastic from various sides, but do we want to sit and watch our beloved country crumble to the ground because of some opportunists and racists out there? As always be reminded that what goes around comes around and respect the image of Gandhi the protesters carried, non violence and peace. Today there's an open road for the Indians here, the protesters have made a point, but the community remain divided. But for the best of everyone, please go to the polls to show what you want not the streets anymore. And empower yourself to face the world out there. The only way out of this problem is creating an atmosphere were the solution can appear itself. We are poor because we are not together, so rebuild this community, stand united, enrich and educate our children and lets chart the future together.
