Throughout the history of Guyana Indians are told by their apologist leaders and Indian think-tank activists to stand down when Indians are beaten and killed each day and that happy days are coming. Their advocacy is that responding in kind to Afro-Guyanese violence in Guyana will just breed more violence.
For 28 years under Burnham / Hoyt dictatorship Indo Guyanese were subjected to choke and rob and murder. What has changed for the good? Our apologist leaders and activists give the Indians a heavy dose of socialists love as a weapon to respond to Black violence and a solution to calm the Indian nerves.
In 2006, since the years of PPP rule, an armed Afro Guyanese criminal gang led by Fineman used Buxton as their base and went about killing Indians. compounded with the usual choke and rob technique. The Indo -Guyanese again were told by their (mis) leaders to stand down because the socialist love will cure the Afro Guyanese evilness and all will be good in time.
In 2015 the PNC gained power after a long recess of 23 years and more beating of Indians ensued, all encouraged by Afro Guyanese think tanks.
On August 2,2020 the PPP regained the seat of the government with the help of the USA and others. Again, more beating of Indo Guyanese took place and the response of Indo Guyanese activists is “don’t react in anger.”
The Afro-Guyanese leaders and think tanks attempted to disrupt and bring down the PPP government by using the regrettable murder of two Afro-Guyanese youths. In retaliation Afro-Guyanese were encouraged and organized to beat up on Indians and the youth Harish Singh was killed in this mayhem.
It’s important to understand Afro- Guyanese thinking – vs – Indo-Guyanese apologist thinking; the Afro Guyanese has the right to defend himself, rig elections, and attack their opponents. One of their leader, Mr. Hamilton Green, asked ex-President David Granger to suspend the Guyana’s constitution and declare a state of emergency to deal with matters of dissidents.
The Indo-Guyanese apologists are quick to highlight how the Afro-Guyanese have a legitimate concern, and fears, and that with the loss of political office in a divided Guyana the African Man will become peripheral so their genuine concerns must be addressed.
The Indo-Guyanese apologists also support the idea that Indo-Guyanese must not respond by organizing themselves to defend against Afro Guyanese violence despite Haji Roshan Khan’s brave and truthful statements that Indians should organize and defend themselves against Afro Guyanese violence. Indo-Guyanese apologists dismissed Hajji Khan’s statement as emanating out of anger and he did not mean it. I am not an Indian activist and I do hope Hajji Roshan Khan of ERC meant every word when he said that Indo-Guyanese must defend themselves against Afro Guyanese aggression. I also believe Indo Guyanese have legitimate fears in office and out of office and their concerns should be addressed too. Indo Guyanese leaders and think tanks must STOP this balanced view and become more COMBATIVE as the Afro Guyanese think tanks do to gain leverage. Indians must not preach for both sides. This kind of balanced view confuses the breaches the PNC and its hooligan did to the Indo Guyanese race.
Again, I support the partition of Guyana for a permanent solution to the ethnic problem as suggested by Mr Eusi Kwayana.
