Who? Mr S Krishnasamy, Tenggaroh State Assemblyman and MIC Johor Deputy Chief.
How? Shot twice at close range by two unidentified assailants.
Why? We still have no idea.
Whatever the cause, political violence is bad and inexcusable. No one should die for his or her politics.
Let us all mourn for Mr S Krishnasamy. May he rest in peace. May his wife and four children find strength and courage at this moment of trial.
Let us all condemn unreservedly this bloodless assassination. May the murderers soon be arrested and charged in the court of law soon.
Let us all cherish and defend our political freedoms. May no party exploit Mr Krishnasamy’s murder to justify any political witch hunt. May no one play with fire.
