I REFER to the letter headlined, ''HK Indians should steer clear of politics'' (South China Morning Post, April 14).
I believe that Mr Hari Harilela should feel free to join the advisory board announced by China, but making derogatory statements against the British Government is like biting the hand that feeds you.
Mr Harilela is still a resident of Hongkong.
He should support the democratic aspirations of the people of Hongkong.
I find it strange that Mr Harilela who is not in tune with the British thinking, still finds it appropriate to keep his title OBE, bestowed upon him by that same British Government.
This is a case of double standards.
