I was surprised because he seems to imply that there is nothing wrong with M Ravi (My FB avatar had suggested that looking at M Ravi’s videos and posts, a medical examination was warranted) and he dissed someone who had helped M Ravi who then found himself being slimed by M Ravi. 
(Btw, P Ravi is wrong about M Ravi never having had a criminal conviction. It became public knowledge that he had a bi-polar problem in 2006 when he was charged and found guilty of causing a disturbance at a mosque. Someone on FB alleges that he was found guilty of rowing with a bouncer but I can’t find evidence of this conviction.)

To my greater surprise, after I posted this on the shameful conspiracy of silence around M Ravi’s mental health, Ariffin Sha, a Padawan (Jedi in training) took exception to what P Ravi posted

It is unfortunate that some people have so little political capital that they to go to such lengths to seek the endorsement of a person who needs medical attention (by his own admission) and his followers.

What M Ravi urgently needs now is professional help. As Alan Shadrakeputs it, “Ravi appears to have gone off the rails again but I hope he is given proper medical and psychiatric treatment instead of jailing him. That would be outrageous. When he takes his medications he’s in complete control – and brilliant. He did an excellent job representing me and it grieves me to see the problems he has again brought on himself. I  I hope the authorities treat him kindly and help his recovery.”

Now, I don’t think that P Ravi is trying “to siphon some fans off M Ravi’s fan bas”; but it’s nice to know that an anti-PAP activist (albeit a youngster) is willing to break ranks and speak out on the need for M Ravi to get medical help, rather than remain silent to try to protect his status as an anti-PAP icon.
