Putera MIC is deeply insulted, saddened and angered by the recent conduct ofBarisan Nasional’s Sungai Rapat assemblywoman, YB Hamidah Osman who used aracial slur against Indians. This act has severely upset the Malaysian Indian community.
All though YB Hamidah Osman has apologized, we believe this act should not be let off with a mere apology. Barisan Nasional must take severe action against her, as a lesson to her, and to others within and outside Barisan Nasional, that such irresponsible behaviour will not be tolerated.
We strongly urge the Perak Barisan Nasional chief Datuk Seri Mohamad Tajol Rosli Ghazali to punish Hamidah Osman with 80 hours of community service with any Indian based NGO or Charity Home in Perak for her unpatriotic behaviour in the august house. We trust this will enable her to get to know the Indian community better.
We also urge all Barisan Nasional leaders, elected representatives and members alike to unite in condemning YB Hamidah’s actions. We must uphold the Barisan Nasional principal of representing all communities equally.
