May 27, 2010 Letters Comments Off on Something sinister is at play
The sexual offences bill is signed into law by President Jagdeo and I do believe it is timely.
I say it is timely because an election like never seen before is approximately a year away. In political terms a year is not a long time. The political wheels are already turning.
The recent attack on Freddie Kissoon is to bring about shame and to defame his character.
If there are already allegations that such a despicable act was carried out because an enraged father feels that Kissoon made sexual advances on his daughter, then one must be very aware of what is to come.
It is my view that the Indian voices of dissent are being targeted. The Sexual Offences Act can therefore serve the vile purposes of nasty politicians. As elections draw closer we may very well see media personnel and political activists being locked up on trumped up charges of sexual offences.
The intentions will be to lock them up, reduced them through shame, before the eyes of the people and bring their credibility into question.
If I had any question of CN Sharma’s innocence in the last allegations of sexual abuses on children made out against him, I am no longer sure. Something sinister is at play. Sharma may well be innocent of those charges. The same for Peter Ramsaroop.
If new political waters are being tested, the tidal waves of controversy will not drown the likes of Freddie Kissoon, it may only make them stronger.
But how can those who fight on behalf of what is just, not be cushioned by the masses who face injustices every day. Where is the balance?
Today, I call on every Guyanese to stand by Sharma, Ramsaroop and Kissoon. Give them the support tenfold like they have never had before.
Elected dictatorship must be crushed. The struggle is most ready to be intensified. I call on their families to stand by them and to walk down the streets with raised heads; proud that their loved ones are suffering in their relentless pursuit to see change for a better Guyana.
Neither the walls of the prisons nor the depths of cold graves must stop what is to come. Who can stop the inevitable?
Today, I feel like I am in a bad dream where forces are pressing us down and we can neither scream nor fight.
Wanting to wake up but sinking deeper hoping thousands of marching feet and the sound of voices, may begin to lift us out of the nightmarish slumber. Dreading to wake in surrounding silence that will only sink us deeper into a nightmare from which we may never awake.
