Being an agnostic myself and having openly declared war against communalism in my book “Lil Zokris...”, let it be clear that I am neither playing the devil's advocate nor being two-faced when siding for Best Loser System (BLS) because one should make the difference between communalism and giving a feeling of security and belonging to all the communities, especially the minorities.
Remember, dear friends, no multi-ethnic country in the history of humanity has ever enjoyed such peace other than Mauritius, thus the title “paradise island”. And this is neither a blessing of some unknown force which we call “God”, nor the utopian feeling of “Mauricianism” which some of our Marxist friends claim to be the owners and possess the know-how.
To see the unclouded truth that it is, and is only the result of BLS and nothing else, ladies and gentlemen, one needs to be flexible and not squeezed in his small box of ideologies.
Advocates of democracy, of secularism, and of wanna-be new wave politicians, know that some values aspired from the west, which naively you wish to copy-paste in our system, are translated as immoralities by those who wish the well-being and stability of our nation and one needs not clairvoyance but just a little trip outside the box will be enough.
Comrades, we are not nationalists, but patriots, and a patriot will never impose his desires of how things should be before the nation's well-being. On the contrary, he will fight for keeping such successful system and sacrifice that in which he believes, if the latter might disturb the peace and stability of our country.
And in reply to the childlike words heard on a radio channel by an unknown speaker : “remove the BLS and let's see what happens”, let it be clear to the mind of ignorants that we cannot afford a trial and error exercise where only a couple of days will be enough to ruin the country if ever, there is unrest among communities in Mauritius from the feeling of being unrepresented, oppressed and opted out.
Friends, a country's well-being is not to gamble !
Let us not change a winning team.
