The politicians have been championing the cause of 1 Malaysia, the brainchild of Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak.

But at the Football Association of Malaysia, they pay scant respect to the effort to unite Malaysians.

For how can they explain holding the National Beach Soccer tournament in Kuantan from October 15 to October 19, right smack in between Deepavali.

Have they no respect for the Indian community or is this a way of telling the Indians you are not wanted in football?

Well, maybe we ought to get the likes of Hindraf or Makkal Sakhti to organise a special event for the Indians.
