Raveentharan a/l V Subramaniam, former Parti Keadilan Rakyat state assemblyman for Batu Uban in Pulau Pinang is in hot soup after the Inspector-General of Police instructed the Royal Malaysian Police for the former’s seditious post in hi Facebook account.
Raveentharan, a Georgetown-based lawyer who was dropped from the candidates’ list during the 13th General Elections quickly apologised to Muslims in Malaysia saying that he did not mean to offend Muslims and that his best friends are Muslims.
Raveentharan is not new to controversies. In 2009, two SMS messages were made viral, sent by an unknown alleging that he sodomised and physically abused his ex-wife. In 2013, he was dropped from PKR’s list of candidates for the 13th General Elections in favour of T Jayabalan.
Below are screen captures made from his Facebook account, courtesy of Dr Aznil Hisham:
Suddenly Raventharan is not so brave anymore. And as for his apology, I leave that to you and for the authorities to decide.
I would like to see him charged in courts.
