When I was very young, I lived in Shah Alam. I was a small kid around the age of 4 when my mother used to leave me with my neighbors’ so that they can take care of me while she goes to work. So, there is this particular old lady that used to take care of me. She stays with her only grandchildren, a cute girl around my age.
This old lady had only one eye. One of her eyes was clouded with some infection, which makes her face look scary and evil. And being left alone with her makes me fucking scared. The only thing that encouraged me was the cute girl. The problem with this old lady is that she doesn’t feed me enough food. Even though my mother pays her for my food, she never serves me with anything other than rice and plain curry. The meat and the vegetables went to the cute girl, her own granddaughter.
Over time, I shrank drastically and looked frail and unhealthy. The cute girl bloated into a mini dinosaur. My mother suspected something wrong was going on, and immediately stopped sending me there after a mini fight with the one eyed evil. I was brought to some local bomoh who told my parents that there is a ‘syaitan’ sitting in my stomach eating all the food that is coming down my throat. How fucking nice. ‘Syaitan in your stomach’.
I still remember details of this entire incident although it happened when I was very young because I was traumatized by this experience. Although not abused physically, I was abused in some way by the one eyed woman. Perhaps that is one of the reason I get so raged when I see politicians laughing all the way to the bank while Indian kids in estates don’t even have enough food. The experience might have moulded me into being a very sensitive person when it comes to food. Until now, I still don’t eat a lot and remain small and thin.
The reason I’m telling you this story is because I want you to know that abuse can lead to a certain type of mentality. The bigger the abuse was, the larger the impact will be.
When I highlighted about Presana Narayanan racist remarks, I felt she might have been abused too. She became so sick in the head that she lost control over what is right and what is wrong. They wouldn’t be able to make the right judgment. But if you think Presana Narayanan was bad, let me introduce a Macha who did something even worst but escaped unscathed.
4 years back, when this blog was read by very few people, I highlighted about an Indian guy who had converted to Islam and started preaching and downgrading other religion in a public forum. His name was Syah Kirit.
According to the video and my sources, Syah Kirit was originally a Hindu who had converted to Islam 11 years ago. He was born a Hindu and his parents are still Hindu to date. After converting to Islam, he began to preach Islam as his religion and goes around giving speeches on how to convince people to convert to Islam. That is more or less much about Syah Kirit. I personally feel that this below Macha was abused. He had been abused mentally and fed with ridiculous thoughts.
Now let’s hear what Syah Kirit thinks about Hindu Gods:
The video particularly serves more like an awareness video to you that guys like this exist in our modern society today, infesting and infecting more people with their skewed and extremist mentality. On the other hand, guys like Syah Kirit exist due to our own fault as well. If you’re going to serve beer, slaughter goats to your God every other weekend and built shrines close to loji and longkang, tell me; how do you expect people not to laugh looking at our religion?
I’m surprised that last year, the Christians were accused of preaching and converting the Muslim into Christians and it created such uproar. Politicians like Hasan Ali took the opportunity to tarnish the image of Christians. Why aren’t the same reaction shown when something vice-versa happens? I am also disappointed that even though this video serves as a major evidence that Syah Kirit had embarrassed and made hugely insensitive remarks about the Hindu community in Malaysia, no actions were taken against him.
This video was uploaded by unknown individual.

So, Lord Shiva had sex with Nandi(a bull), and then Nandi wanted to have sex back with Lord Shiva, thus Lord Shiva escaped into a small cave that can only fit 1 person. So, Nandi is still waiting until today to have sex with Lord Siva.
The above video might be old, but without any action taken against him, he had been left with the freedom to spread sick ideologies and making insensitive remarks about other religion. God knows how many more forum he had addressed with the same content.
If you thought Presana was bad, think again.

Dear All, it has come to my attention today that Shah Kirit had apologized in his ‘blog‘ for his mistake in the way he had presented his points in the closed forum. I’ve no idea during the time the article was published that an apology was made thus the outrage above. Despite how lightly this issue was actually treated by the authorities, I believe we should put it to rest. I sincerely hope this will serve as a lesson to all that you will reap what you sow. I had no intention of spreading or inciting hatred by using this issue.I apologize for the outrage shown in the article and lack of research before presenting it to you.
To whom it may concern,
It has come to my attention that the video of a talk on ‘Hinduism’ which I gave almost five (5) years ago in Kedah, in response to a request for a simple lay-man’s explanation on the basic belief in Hinduism (for purpose of Islamic missionary work training) has been posted on YouTube by an unknown and unauthorized person overseas. We are currently investigating his/her identity and possible motive.
I would like to reiterate here that the talk is old and was for the specific purpose of missionary work training only, limited to the group in attendance, and definitely NOT for public viewing. This is very evident from the talk itself, especially towards the end when the speaker stressed again and again the point of being discrete about the material. Further, it is very much against the teachings of Islam to mock or ridicule any religion, and I assure you that was never the speaker’s intention.
However, since the material is now in the public domain, I would request that all those whom I have unintentionally offended, to please review the whole thing with the above explanation in mind. Perhaps, you would then perceive it in a different light. Please note also that in addition to material that Hindus may find ‘negative’ to the Hindu cause, there is also material which is positive, such as when the speaker strived to dispel negative misconceptions regarding Hindus’ intent in Malaysia. Of course, looking back, I would never have approached the subject in such ‘frank & candid’ manner had I known it would one day find its way into the public domain. It has been a valuable personal lesson for me.
To all that this particular lecture has caused antagonism and grief, I’m extending my sincere regret and apology, and I promise to do everything in my power to get the video removed from YouTube. I am also willing to meet up with any of the official Hindu organizations (such as Hindu Sanggam), if necessary, for a more detailed discussion/clarification relating to the video.
Shah Kirit Kakulal Govindji
