Makkal Sakthi Team Interview
This is my inpromptu interview or dialogue with members of the Makkal Sakthi team who were at the recent Ceramah Perdana of Tuan Guru Datuk Hj Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat which was peacefully conducted at the MPAJ Padang of Pandan Indah, Selangor Darul Ehsan.
The Makkal Sakthi team was led by Brother Ramamoorthi Kalimuthu, the (P119) Titiwangsa Parliamentary Indian Community Representative. Brother Ramamoorthi is the one wearing the vest.
Brother Kumaran who wears the Makkal Sakthi T shirt spoke in English.
I shared with them about the signs of Asma'ul Husna on our palms and also about other matters.
To me as a Muslim blogger, I have no qualms in speaking with any true Malaysian and even if the Hindraf leaders had issued anti Islamic statements in their early days, I presume that they did so out of their desperate situations back then.
I do believe that the Hindraf leaders who are being held under the Internal Security Act at Kamunting now were wrong in lumping us together with the BN's ruthless ways and thus had mistakenly issued such hurtful statements.
With proper dialogue and understanding, I believe that there is still hope for those in the Makkal Sakthi to work successfully with the Pakatan Rakyat leadership especially with PAS and PKR.
All it takes is willingness on the part of the Makkal Sakthi HINDRAF leadership in learning more about the difference between UMNO and PAS Muslims.
Once they do that, the future for co-operation between the Makkal Sakthi Hindus and Pakatan Rakyat Muslims in learning to co-exist in peace and harmony will be much more brighter and possible.
Makkal Sakthi have done well by joining the PAS Supporters Club and now have the support and backing of Malaysia's largest Islamic party.
With a win win objective put to practice by all members of the Pakatan Rakyat Malaysians, a better future for all will not be very hard to achieve in the coming days! Insya Allah.
YB Iskandar Samad joined us for a photo shoot and this video for posterity.
I also managed to get Brothers Ramamoorthi and Kumaran to speak to the viewers here in Tamil and English respectively.
