The arrest of the 8 is unwarranted; similarly, they did not arrest those who barge into the bar council forum recently on the spot, why arrest only when it involves Indians, after all the protest was among Indians not involving other races, means that the police on the instruction of the ruling govt have a hidden hand behind the scene. The sleepy head PM's suspicious stop at the temple to receive a memo on the 18 points demand is evident to BN's interference and the plot the to crush Hindraf.
. Out of the thousands of letters sent to the PM/BN govt. non was acknowledged; why only now the PM showing interest? Samy Velu the liar is behind the scene too. Hindraf should not give in to such demands and fight for their rights. PKR MP's should take this double standard matter to the parliament. This is total disregard to the rule of law and playing with fire by the govt. and the police. The police and the govt is trying to instill fear among the Indian communityin this country.
The Indians must therefore stand brave and fight all odds. I appeal to all Indians in P/Pauh to stand united to defeat BN and crush them. We have to put a full stop to all these nonsence and political hegemony by race based BN. We have to unite under one banner and sent the corrupt govt to hell. Pass this message to all Indians and Hindraf members...

However, the quarrel did not end there.Anbalagan and Hindrafsupporters protested outside the Chinese temple for another half anhour, causing a jam in Jalan Todak. They demanded that Regu and organisers of the event vacate the Chinese temple immediately. Some supporters lodged a police report at the Seberang Jaya stationagainst the organisers of the event.
Police appealed to the group todisperse but later light strike force personnel detained eight people.Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had earlier stopped at the temple for a visit.
