As we all feared, the Kg Buah Pala Indian village is now being systematically being destroyed by the powers that be.
The descendants of the Brown Estate workers who were given unconditional rights to reside there in that village were betrayed by the previous Penang BN Gerakan State Government who got the ignorant dwellers of the more than 200 year old only remaining Indian village in Penang to sign over their rights to those slick slimy ones in power.
Instead of helping the poor to get to live in peace upon the village land which was granted to their forefathers, both the previous and the present state governments have washed off their hands from the Kg Buah Pala villagers predicaments.
As I type this, the destruction of the villagers homes is taking place and many of the villagers and their supporters are getting arrested and altercations are said to be taking place there between the residents and the law enforcement agencies.
There is a Malay saying ‘Ayam terlepas tangan bau tahi!’
The poor villagers seem to be at the losing end of this battle to save their 200 over years old heritage village.
For detailed reports about what is taking place there at Kg Buah Pala, do visit Arvind Raj’s dedicated site on this unfortunate village ~ Crying Voices!
He’s done a great job of sharing the villagers story.
Whoever victimizes the poor and the ignorants in order to live off their land will surely not come to a good end!
You might think that you can get away even with murder but just wait when your time is up?
Then you will know the difference between heaven and HELL!!!
Damn all those who have turned tyrants at the expense of the poor villagers of Kg Buah Pala.
May Allah give you your dues!!!
