Once again, a blatant display of racial provocation by certain group of people, after the similar provocation during the pig farm protest in Melaka last December. And once again, no action was taken against these people, even though it was a clear case of incitement of hatred, not to mention it was an illegal assembly, both an offense worthy of arrest under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

Some 50 residents enraged with the proposed relocation of a Hindu temple to their area staged a noisy protest with a severed cow’s head this afternoon.
The residents – from Section 23 in Shah Alam – who gathered after the Friday prayers, placed the head outside the gates of the state secretariat building for a short period before removing it.
“Where is Xavier? This head is for him,” shouted one of the protesters in reference to Selangor executive councillor Dr Xavier Jeyakumar.
Jeyakumar is one of those in charge of non-Muslim affairs in the state.
Earlier, the protesters had marched some 300m from the state mosque to the state secretariat building.
Before dispersing, several protesters spat and stomped on the cow head. The cow is considered sacred among Hindus.
Samy Vellu sees red
In an immediate reaction, MIC president S Samy Vellu condemned the protest.
“The cow is a sacred animal of the Hindus, and for this group to resort to such action, is intolerable and tantamount to challenging the freedom of religion as enshrined in the Malaysian Constitution.
“It is the right of Malaysians of any faith, including Hindus to build temples and other places of worships. I am very sad that this group had paraded the cow’s head on their way to the state secretariat building,” he said in a statement.
“We must not allow anyone to challenge or ridicule any religion in this country. I worry that this action may lead to retaliation from the Hindu community. However, I wish to urge the Hindus especially be calm and let the authorities deal with it,” he added.
Samy Vellu said MIC wants the government and the police to take action against the organisers of this protest.
They must be punished according to the law for endangering the racial harmony in this country, he added.
So while our Malaysian Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak keeps promoting his 1Malaysia concept of national unity, all we can see is 2 laws, 2 types of citizenship, 2 economic rights, 2 educational opportunities, 2 housing prices, and many other 2s. 1BigJoke that’s what it is!
