I wish to salute those who gave a ‘pass’ on Batu Caves for Thaipusam this year to protest against the way the temple’s committee behaves like an MIC stooge. Devotees instead went to other temples to pray to Lord Muruga or simply prayed at home.
After all, prayer is a silent conversation between God and the devotee. Hindus believe that God is everywhere.
The MIC and BN and its spin media can say a million lies but the truth is a significant number of devotees avoided Batu Caves. Truth is defined as something that never changes and the truth will unavoidably come out in the end.
MIC president S Samy Vellu knows this and so do his goons in the Batu Caves temple committee.
The point I wish to make is that the Hindus should continue to boycott the Batu Caves temple and choose alternate places of worship until the current committee is forced out and a new, clean and God-fearing is set up - one with no ties to the MIC.
But if Hindus still wish to continue visiting Batu Caves, please do so as temples and prayers are individual and democratic choices. But make sure your cars are parked outside the temple premises to avoid payment of the parking fee to the temple committee.
Do not spend a single sen for any type of ‘pooja’, food and drinks, etc. Just pray to your hearts' content and go back.
According to Samy, Indians are ‘not fools’. He is absolutely right so let the Indians prove him right by withdrawing their support for MIC and BN.
