Who are you to forgive Asri, Ramasamy slams Hindu Sangam

KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 25: Deputy Chief Minister Prof P Ramasamy questions who is Malaysian Hindu Sangam Datuk Mohan Shan trying to hoodwink, by forgiving Perlis Mufti Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin over his disgusting racist remarks towards the Hindu’s.

“While Hindus generally are furious over the disgusting and racist remarks of Asri, there is one person who has come to accept the apology offered by Asri.

“This is none other than the President of Malaysia Hindu Sangam, Mohan Shan, a person who kept quiet all this time, but has jumped on the bandwagon to remain relevant.

“Who is Malaysian Hindu Sangam (MHS) to forgive Asri, the Mufti of Perlis?” asked Ramasamy in a statement today.

He claimed that Asri’s had only apologised to the Hindus who have “misunderstood” his real intentions.

“In other words, he still maintains his criticisms of Hinduism, whether directed at Hindus in Malaysia or against the BJP led government in India are well placed.

“MHS has no base amongst the Hindus in the country; it is business organisation that survives from the hand-outs given by the BN government.

“So, in other words, MHS should not think that it represents Hindus in the country, for it has no legitimacy even to speak on behalf of Hindus.

“Given MHS strong leanings on the BN government, it is a pathetic organisation that has not been in the forefront in defending Hindus against hate speeches of the likes of Zakir Naik and Asri,” said the DAP deputy Secretary General.

Ramasamy said that while Mohan Shan was quick to accept the “apology” of Asri, he never condemned him when he came out with his Facebook postings few days back.

“Now, who is Mohan Shan trying to hoodwink!” said Ramasamy.

Asri had apologised to the local Hindu community over a controversial “cow worship” poem he had posted on his Facebook page.

“To non-Muslims who are not involved in this issue, particularly to Hindus who may have misunderstood the meaning of my poem, I sincerely apologise. I never meant to refer to Hindus who are not involved in this issue,” he said on Monday.

Asri said previously that his poem on “cow worshippers” was actually referring to recent events in India and not was intended as an insult to local Hindus.

He reiterated that his prior explanation of the poem was intended for the Indian government run by Narendra Modi.

The poem, which has since been removed, was believed to be in response to the criticism of controversial Muslim preacher Dr Zakir Naik, who is wanted in India for allegedly inspiring terrorist activities through his preaching.
