Govt is persecuting Satish Sehgal
In seeking to deport Indian-Thai businessman Satish Sehgal for his political activities the government has lost sight of its priorities. Give the elderly gentleman a break. It cannot be easy being a minority in Thailand. I have heard racist jokes made by fellow Thais countless number of times.
It reminds me of another case of misplaced priorities: police action after protesters defaced the sign at police headquarters in Pathumwan. Why worry about such a small thing? Let the protesters vent their feelings on a sign. Why worry about such a minor matter when weightier matters, such as the closure of government offices, or the disruptions of the election, await the police's attention?
