“Dewa” Najib in Batu Caves

It is interesting to know that a huge replica showing the image of PM Najib Tun Razak, was constructed to welcome him on his visit to Batu Caves on 8th August, 2009. His image was bigger than any image of hindu gods in Batu Caves. From Suara Keadilan (11th – 18 August, 2009) the image of PM Najib Tun Razak was displayed at the entrance of the steps infront of an image of the Hindu god. A statue of a Hindu god has to stand behind the replica of Najib. This shows how important Najib is in IMalaysia Concept mooted by Najib and Hindu god by protocol of the BN government has to give way to Najib in the name of I Malaysian Concept and BN style of Malaysian Unity. This gives the impression that a devotee has to show respect to Najib first before showing respect to the Hindu god. Young children may at such a religious place be mistaken that the image is also an image of a Hindu God. For the unknowing children, they may just worship him too.

This really was a display of arrogance in a religious place which showed little respect to the Hindus who visited Batu Caves.

Now, whether Malaysians should call “Long Live Najib, Bless Malaysia” or “Bless us God, we need Your Divine Protection” when Malaysians who came to pay homage to the gods in Batu Caves.
