'Jangan lapor yang bukan-bukan', rayu ibu Aminulrasyid

'Put teen killer cops behind bars, not desks'

By FMT Staff

KUALA LUMPUR: The Human Rights Party wants the policemen involved in the shooting of a 15-year-old teenager to be accorded the same treatment as other suspects in a murder probe.

“They should be arrested and remanded pending investigation,” said HRP pro-tem secretary-general P Uthayakumar.

He was responding to Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar's statement that the policemen had been reassigned to desk duties.

“They killed a young boy, these policemen should be in jail,” he told FMT, adding that such action would serve as a deterrent for other policemen."

Uthayakumar, who has consistenly accused the police of being trigger-happy, said: “It must be drilled into their heads that the police are not above the law.”

“If it was you or me, we would be in jail by now. Why the special privilege for them?” he asked, expressing regret that a young boy's life was needlessly lost.

Citing the Criminal Procedure Code, Uthayakumar, who is a lawyer, stressed that the law is clear on the discharging of firearms by policemen.

“Although this is probably a case of an overzealous policeman firing his weapon, stern action however would put a full stop to this,” he said.

PAS MP: Don't cover up

Earlier, PAS Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad also warned the police not to "cover up" the incident.

In view of this, he urged the police to ensure the safety of the witness. “There should not be any attempts to change his statement,” he told a press conference.

Khalid claimed that the police had a tendency to sweep such cases under the carpet.

According to the police report made by the witness, he and the victim identified as Aminul Rashid Amzah were returning from a restaurant in Section 7, Shah Alam, yesterday.

The witness claimed that they overtook a police vehicle, which later chased their car, and it was during the pursuit that the cops had allegedly opened fire, forcing them to come to a halt.

The report said that when the witness alighted from the car to surrender, he was kicked and punched by the policemen.

However, the witness managed to flee the scene and returned home.

Police's version different

Meanwhile, the police's version of the incident was different.

Khalid was reported as saying that his men had chased the Proton Iswara driven by the deceased after suspecting something was amiss.

He claimed that instead of slowing down, the teenager sped on, leading the police to shoot the tyres.

When the car skidded to a halt, Khalid said one of the suspects escaped, while the driver reversed the vehicle attempting to ram into the policemen, who were joined by others from a different patrol unit.

“Surprised by the suspect's action, a police officer fired in self-defence,” he said, claiming that the police discovered a machete in the car later.

Aminul died on the way to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang.

Khalid also said the four police personnel have been transferred to desk jobs pending an investigation under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.

Meanwhile, the PAS MP said he was told that Aminul was a good student who was active in sports.

Hulu S’gor: HRP deemed the stumbling block for PR for speaking up for poor Indians. Indian mandore reporters and internet writers used to undermine HRP struggle.

Hulu S’gor: HRP deemed the stumbling block for PR for speaking up for poor Indians. Indian mandore reporters and internet writers used to undermine HRP struggle.

In the aftermath and the dust settles after the Hulu Selangor by elections, we are getting SMSes, calls and feedback that HRP could and would have made a difference to PR winning the Hulu Selangor by elections. Yes, we could have easily swayed at least that 863 votes so that PKR would have won by one vote.

A thousand mile journey begins with a single step. When Anwar Ibrahim refuses to grant even the basic necessity of Tamil school land for all the 98 Tamil Schools land in Selangor, which in turn would have forced UMNO to grant them fully financial aid status how are we to support PKR and PR? We cannot be the blind supporters that PKR, DAP and PAS wants us to be, like how the MIC mandores have been for UMNO for 53 years, or how PR’s 11 Indian MPs and the 15 ADUN mandores are doing now.

HULU SELANGORAnd now PKR, DAP and PAS in the interest or political expediency expects HRP to support their party line and also abandon these critical Indian problems which HRP will not.

HRP means business. HRP will speak up without fear or favour, for especially the Indian poor, as there seem to be no takers for their pain, suffering and degeneration.

Who speaks for the poor Indians? UMNO? Or PKR, DAP or PAS?

None! So if HRP also abandons these critical Indian problems and opt to play to the majoritarian Chinese, Malay and Native gallery, at least 70% of the Indians within the next ten years would be reduced into destitution in Malaysia, which is already in the making today.

PKR, DAP and PAS in their zest to get to Putrajaya are almost wholly sidestepping the critical Indian problems, beginning from the three west coast states they are ruling.

We are not prepared for UMNO to be replaced by the PKR led clone of UMNO. We want to move parallel with PKR, DAP and PAS’ intended ascent to Putrajaya.

HRP will be the check and balance for PR vis a vis the critical Indian problems when they get to Putrajaya.

PR is trying to tell us not to pursue the critical Indian problems until they get to Putrajaya. And then PR will, ala UMNO, ask for another 50 years to put the Indians back on track.

Why can’t solving the basic necessity and critical Indian problems be more parellel with P.R’s ambitions to Putrajaya? This would go a long way in displaying sincerity to the critical Indian problems.

As it stands PR is only showing their zest in the Indian votes, but not resolving their issues.

PR is now getting alternative media writers to undermine HRP.

Several Indian writers, journalists, NGO activists, etc., perhaps suffering from minority complex syndrome or inferiority complex, almost wholly sidestep the real and critical Indian problems. They would rather play to the gallery and cari makan or not take the risk of being branded a racist. This aforesaid group collectively has probably written about 1% of the critical Indian problems we highlight here on a day to day basis.

In their supposed hidden multi-racial agenda to dilute the Indian critical problems they often write that there are also poor orang Asli, poor Malays and poor Iban and Kadazan. But they have never replied to our explanation that the poor Malays, orang Asli, Kadazan and Iban have their social safety net of their traditional villages and ancestral villages, plus the privileges as bumiputras. The sky is the limit for them to earn a living by engaging agricultural activities, animal and poultry farming. But this option is no way available to the Indian poor. Even Jeffrey Kitingan and other east Malaysian leaders concede that the native east Malaysians are better off than the Indian poor.

The truth is that the Indian issues have emerged so critical and in a condemned state of affairs, so much so that these Indian writers, mandores and their tuans and towkays in PKR, DAP and PAS have conveniently chosen to abandon them.

There is a Tamil proverb that if one cannot be of any help, one should not be stumbling block (in this HRP struggle). Just as how HRP was never a stumbling block for PR in the Hulu Selangor by elections.

On 21/4/10 A group of 23 Hindraf heroes who were unlawfully arrested detained, denied bail (initially), and maliciously prosecuted for unlawful assembly during the 25th November 2007 Hindraf Rally, were charged at the Kuala Lumpur sessions court.
These Hindraf heroes after having briefed on the pros and cons of pleading guilty maintained that they wanted to go through with the criminal prosecution knowing that the UMNO controlled Malay-sian Judiciary may eventually put them in jail for merely exercising their right to assemble peacefully without arms as is enshrined in Article 10 of the Federal Constitution.

A question and answer and clarification session ended the two and a half meeting. Earlier a video presentation on the Hindraf struggle prepared by S.Jayathas was played.
The Hindraf heroes left even more convinced with their struggle.

 Indian business chamber leader kk.eswaran The 2010 Budget allocation is RM191.5 billion and yet UMNO has the cheek to grant RM2 million for the 2 Million Indian population in Malay-sia @ an average of RM1.00 per Indian through their Indian business mandore.
Despite 53 years of independence UMNO still segregates the Indians and excludes them from the national mainstream development of Malaysia by this peanuts and mandore politics.
UMNO is obsolete, we the fourth, fifth and sixth generation of Indians see through this UMNO rasicm, religious extremism and supremacy.
We should be part of the RM191.5 million budget and do not need a separate allocation of the peanuts of RM1.00 to create one Indian entrepreneur.
UMNO should stop repeatedly insulting the Indians.

The move of the Indian votes to UMNO is tactical and PR needs to understand that the Indian votes do not come for free . They must be earned.

Kee Thuan Chye wrote in an article published today the 27th of April 2010 in titled ‘”They don’t want change do they?”
“Indian voters suffered from myopia and amnesia, the big Hindraf march of late 2007 expressing the frustration of more than 50 years of Indian marginalisation all but forgotten. They went for the short-term gains.”
4_goodiesMyopia mean short sight. Meaning Indians have gone for short term gains. Have they really?
The Indians marched for changes to their lives in the Grand Hindraf Rally. Have they seen the changes?
From their standpoint PR is proving to be no different than BN in the last two years. Every Indian problem that existed two years ago at the time of the Rally is pretty much still there. Nothing has been forthcoming from the PR Governments in the 4 states to really address the underlying issues . Just unfulfilled promises, theatrics in the media, mollifying goodies and more of the mandore stuff ala UMNO.
Then we get silly excuses like it is only two years, we need more time.
Why does one need so much time to address a couple of the issues , for a lesser community. Has anything serious really been started that may take some time to yield tangible results or changes?
So, what does one infer from all of this? ……… only that PR has no political will to address the Indian issues, plain and simple. That is not much different than under BN, is it?  Kee, tell me that the inference is unjustified.
The votes have not gone permanently to BN either. It has gone to BN as a protest against PR for their amnesia. Will stay there only as long as necessary. PR cannot take the Indian votes for granted. PR has to earn the Indian votes.
Now see that it is PR who has amnesia, but I do not see you complaining. Kee!
Indians have not gone for short term gains. Anyway how much of the multimillions were spent on projects benefitting the Indians.The move of the votes is tactical to let PR know there must be permanent changes, the changes the Indians marched for, in the Grand Hindraf Rally, if PR is to keep the votes. That is actually a long term move , more than what you can grasp, it appears, dear Kee, It is not because of myopia or amnesia as you so superficially put it, or so self servingly understand it.
Your tone in accusing the Indians that they suffer from myopia and amnesia is downright condescending. Please do not think you have monopoly over wisdom. This condescending attitude, generally seen with our Chinese compatriots is also a needed component of the change we seek of this racist system. Let us see some of that  as we walk together for larger changes. What say you?

‘So, is the Indian vote still insignificant?’

your say‘Pakatan dismissed Indian votes as insignificant and they were not interested in recapturing Indian votes. Denial is the best weapon for self-destruction.’

Fairplay: Both spent money and distributed goodies to convince the voters, but finally, who spent more, won.
Although BN spent more, Pakatan Rakyat’s campaign strategy did not win the heart of the voters. We can’t deny that incidents like tearing down posters, vulgar words, militant tactics, and Zaid Ibrahim’s personality contributed to the failure to attract voters.
At the same time, MIC top leaders did not go to the ground but sent new faces to convince the Indian voters. They explained to the voters that S Samy Vellu will step down, the Maika money will be returned to the shareholders, that we must have another Indian in Parliament, and so on.
This approach influenced more voters than that adopted by PKR’s Indian leaders, who are only active in releasing press statements but came to Hulu Selangor and talked nonsense.

G Pandi Tan: Anwar Ibrahim, you may be a self-made man but you have to admit those Indian PKR MPs and state assembly members do not have Indian grassroots support. You isolating the real Hindraf has cost you Hulu Selangor.

Raja Rajan: Pakatan leaders are still in self-denial. They don’t want to acknowledge they lost the Indian votes. They dismissed Indian votes as insignificant and they were not interested in recapturing these Indian votes. Denial is the best weapon for self-destruction.

A Pakatan-Hindraf pact is imperative - Malaysiakini

COMMENT With Indian votes showing signs of drifting back to Barisan Nasional, it becomes more imperative than before for Pakatan Rakyat to work out an accommodation with Hindraf, the group responsible for detaching Indian voter support for the BN at the last general election.

A heavy defeat for Pakatan in the by-election for the Bagan Pinang state seat in Negri Sembilan last October was an indication that Indian voters could be induced to return to BN.

A complete analysis of voting patterns in yesterday's poll for the Hulu Selangor seat is yet to be done, but it's already safe to say that what Bagan Pinang semaphored Hulu Selangor has reinforced – the Indian vote, in the estates especially, is drifting back to BN.

NONEWhat with a settlement of the long festering Maika Holdings issue in the offing, the return of the Indian rural vote, a reliable bloc since independence for the ruling coalition, to its allegiance of old appears certain to happen.

PKR ought to lead Pakatan in going some distance in preventing this.

Last November, Zaid Ibrahim, in the process of collating the Common Policy Framework for Pakatan, met up with P Waythamoorthy of Hindraf in Singapore to come to grips with the basic demands of the group.

An informal understanding was reached but this has been blurred by the continued stridency of Waythamoorthy's elder brother, P Uthayakumar, whose derogatory sniping at all and sundry for supposed failure to make good on promises to the Indian community makes it almost impossible to induce him to become a partner in the delicate negotiations that an accommodation would entail.

This is a vexed matter, made so by the unilateralism of Uthayakumar and the perception among Pakatan leaders that the man is unappeasable.

Certainly, it doesn't help that Uthayakumar plans to contest in the next general election in the Prai state seat and in the Batu Kawan parliamentary one in Penang under the emblem of the Human Rights Party which is his creation.

Both seats have a significant Indian voter presence, enough to give Uthayakumar's quixotic quest a tincture of realism.

Emerging sodality

Of course, there are some like the victorious candidate in the Hulu Selangor poll, P Kamalanathan, who claim that Hindraf is a one-election wonder and that its influence has waned.

This is conjecture. Even if Kamalanathan succeeded in outpolling Zaid Ibrahim among Indian voters in Hulu Selangor it won't validate this theory.

indian crowd malaysia 
291107The issues that are sources of discontent among Indians – their general poverty and lack of economic opportunity – are not peculiar to them alone; the Dayaks of Sarawak and the Kadazan of Sabah are similarly placed.

In fact recent attempts at a sodality of the discontented, taken to include – together with the Indians, Dayaks and Kadazan – the Orang Asli, under the rubric of a 'third force', has gained credence.

Prescient manoeuvring by Pakatan can bring this emerging sodality to coalesce under its wing and strengthen its claim to be a credible political vehicle for the fulfillment of the legitimate aspirations of the poor in Malaysia.

There is time yet before the next general election, which is anticipated for the middle of next year, to induce Uthayakumar to abandon his general election plans and work out an accommodation with Hindraf.

After having witnessed the way the Indian poor voted in the Bagan Pinang and Hulu Selangor by-elections, it would be unwise for PKR, and the coalition it leads, Pakatan, to do nothing to forestall the drift back of the Indian voter to BN.

TERENCE NETTO has been a journalist for close on four decades. He likes the occupation because it puts him in contact with the eminent without being under the necessity to admire them.

HELLO Pakatan, it was also bribery & corruption in GE12

Of course the commentors now run down the Malaysian Indians ie the poor and poverty stricken how they were bought over as they could have created the swing for a Pakatan victory. Looking at some of the comments, it really makes me wonder what kind and how politically immature these people are and can only blow their hot air without any actual analysis.

By R. Shan (Human Being)

It is rather surprising that Pakatan is sounding like an old record that bribery and corruption paved the way for an unknown Mr Kamalanathan further being an Indian to wrestle and defeat the infamous Datuk Zaid Ibrahim in the recent election when the bulk of the Chinese votes more or less voted for Pakatan?

Isn’t bribery and corruption part and parcel of the UMNO machinery? Who are you trying to fool?

Of course the commentors now run down the Malaysian Indians ie the poor and poverty stricken how they were bought over as they could have created the swing for a Pakatan victory. Looking at some of the comments, it really makes me wonder what kind and how politically immature these people are and can only blow their hot air without any actual analysis. Memories do serve us all short to understand the mechanism of politics.

The same bribery and corruption was there in GE12, but the Malaysian Indians created the swing through the involvement of HINDRAF as an impetus on the marginalization & discrimination state of the Indians with humnaity as the concern, where the bribe and corruption did not stop them to vote for the opposition. Don’t these people see this or is it the type of people that are inbred for the politics of Pakatan.

Pakatan, if you win, you claim it is multiracial, if you lose you blame the Indians who were bribed and corrupted like in Bagan Pinang. If such is the case, then you do accept that the Malaysian Indians are the kingmakers how the election goes.

Now, your ardent commentors & followers in their armchair position throw all kind of accusations against the Malaysian Indians for the loss in Hulu Selangor. But let me ask you this. What have they fought for? Are they asking for preference? Are they asking to be treated differently from the rest of the Malaysians? No, they are asking what you can do that is different from UMNO with their lackey MIC.

Pakatan had their chances and choices, but they would rather label the very cause that started the uprise HINDRAF as racist and play politics as opposed to BN who sat silently and watched how Pakatan was burning their own bridges with HINDRAF.

To date, with all the criticism that HINDRAF lays at the path of UMNO after the election, have you seen them chastize HINDRAF as much as Pakatan has or it's ardent commentors and bloggers? The self destruction of PAKATAN is obvious when they are not able to engage HINDRAF. And this UMNO has learnt that as long as there is a battle between PAKATAN and HINDRAF, UMNO can make it's own route for the Indians as seen in how quickly MMSP was formed against the will of MIC. Of course, MMSP is nothing but an instrument of UMNO.

Kamalanathan did not win because UMNO is strong, but because PAKATAN is playing politics with the people like what BN has been doing for the last 52 years before their realization after the last election. The realization was created by HINDRAF without bribery and corruption and solely on a humanity pursuit, and BN had taken steps to address these problems and that is why they are by-passing MIC to approach the people directly.

With Pakatan, they seem to be folded in a battle with HINDRAF who can be a formidable ally as they need to realize that HINDRAF has stood aloof beyond politics on the stand that they have taken whether it is UMNO or PAKATAN.

The aloofness of HINDRAF is somewhat misintepreted or manipulated. Before GE12, UMNO with various accusations. Then after GE12, and in particular after the Kg Buah Pala issue, it was the turn of PAKATAN. UMNO has died down, but PAKATAN keeps harping on the racism of HINDRAF.

It is funny. With all the racial criticism of HINDRAF, the PAKATAN fans blame the Malaysian Indians for the loss in Hulu Selangor. What they fail to realize is that the humanity aspect that HINDRAF pursues is not the summer soldiers and sunshine patriots that they seek but a permanent solution that PAKATAN can offer for a humane will for this society that has been sidelined and kicked around for everyone’s personal political will.

Sure, bludgeon me. But I alone cannot make the difference, but we need a community to seek what is the truth and reality on the ground for the humanity that we seek without any political interference or influence for the betterment of the future generation.

HINDRAF is a stampede for humanity

As social activists, Hindraf started fighting against police custodial deaths under PoliceWatch, then the conversion matter of Moorthy and against temple demolitions under the name of Hindraf, and now on a more broad-based human rights violations and marginalisation of minorities under the Human Rights Party. As it is rights based, naturally it is open to all races.

By Hang Tuah

Hindraf is fighting for the poor Indians, not the urban, educated, middle class or rich Indians and similar ones in other races but the bottom 30% who live in small towns, rural areas, those who do not have access to piped
water, education, sometimes electricity, who earn RM 13 a day when even the migrants earn RM 22 per day, those indiscriminately shot at and brutalised in police custody.

It is these Malaysians that Hindraf fight for when the other communities contemptuously shun them as the societal sore even when they are Malaysians!

As it grows and more resources are available, with more non-Indian participation in their effort, Hindraf will broaden its campaign to include all races in their fight against discrimination and marginalization of policies driven by political parties. As of now it restricts itself to only those Malays and Chinese who approaches Hindraf for assistance when they have been shunned by everyone else, including their own race.

Recently, this included a Malay alleged drug addict who died in police custody, and HINDRAF bought a coffin for him when his family could not afford it, as well as the more recent case of Norizan who was shot five times by the police.

Hindraf has given up on the urban English-educated Indians who yearn to be 'whiteys', with the typical know how attitude but continue to ignore and disassociate themselves from their poorer and marginalised Malaysian
Indians cousins. There are over 10,000 professional Indians but only a few care for the plight of the poor Indians. These English speaking 'professional Indians' prefer to be multi-racial in outlook and socialise with Chinese and Malays, groveling for inclusion and acceptance, not realising that in this racist-centric nation, their own Malay and Chinese 'multi-racial' friends have only contempt and disregard for all Indians! Just look at the comments in the cyber world; never an intelligent or a factual argument on the struggle but one that depicts and castigate them with sneers and sarcasm.

Hindraf struggles for policy change in a macro aspect not on an individual micro sense, but which would eventually benefit all communities not just Indians. A policy change benefits all across the board, regardless of race or religion.

Hindraf initiated or shall I say opened the eyes of many, of the desperation of the Malaysian Indians, by action. Not some cyberworld and passive position that many take today. It wholeheartedly supported Pakatan during the GE12 and all it got back for the society it represented was broken promises. Not once since coming to power has PR conferred with Hindraf on policies. Except for the meetings between Waythamoorthy and Zaid outside Malaysia, until today there is no contact with Hindraf, all their letters and petitions have been spurned!

Hindraf does not trust UMNO or PR. Hindraf warns all Malaysians not to trust politicians on either side. These politicians have no intention to resolve the rakyats’ woes, but to ensure that they are in pole position for themselves but never for the poor or the poverty stricken. They just want your support, your votes.

Everyone wants Hindraf to join PR and fight for 'The Cause', but no one wants to hear Hindraf's demands. They simply want Hindraf's interests to be subsumed to Pakatan's greater interests for the political front. HINDRAF can’t do that and will not bow to any force as it is only submissive for a humane cause. The reality today in the current state at least within the major three races, Malay, Chinese and Indian is so transparent, and if the Malays who are politically favoured and those Chinese who are economically well placed, or the elite Indians, cannot understand or fail to recognize the depleted state of the Malaysian Indians, then it is them that are a lesser

Hindraf feels Anwar has done all that he can and there is not much more he can achieve. Perhaps just a few more seats. That's about all. We need something more to change the government. Hindraf is also embarking on raising Dayak consciousness and Dayak nationalism, and forming a formidable front in East Malaysia.

Hindraf's demands have to be placed upfront as this is the society that has deteriorated so far in every aspect as the rest Malaysians stood by and watched it happen. We have already seen that PR has no intention to resolve Hindraf's demands even when they have the power to do so. PR has no idea on what to do in East Malaysia too, we are told; no stated policies, another ping pong game for their political needs.

What more if PR goes to Putrajaya. When they can't do a simple thing in the states in West Malaysia that they already govern, how are they to address the poor and poverty concerns of the Malaysian Indians?
Hindraf is convinced that the Chinese and to a lesser extent the Malays, will not sway unless the Indians walk first and create the stampede! The Chinese will not be seen caught voting against the establishment as they have too much at stake as much as the Malay politically, but they will do it if the Indians starts this as the poor and
marginalized poor Indians have nothing to lose in their desperation and despair to seek a better future for themselves in a so-called multi-racial motherland Malaysia in namesake.

Without Hindraf PKR is dead

Dear Editors,
Could you please publish the article below.
Thank You very much.

We have not obtained the complete details of the results but from what we have heard a majority of the Indian voters of Hulu Selangor had cast their votes for BN.. HRP and Hindraf had stayed completely neutral in this election and this is entirely the people's decision.The people of Hulu Selangor have spoken.

Our political analyst Subramaniam Bharathy, at the outset of this election, had said that two clear conditions had to be met for PKR to win. They needed to field a credible Malay candidate and they needed to get endorsement from a strong Indian grassroots organization like HRP for a clear win. PKR met one condition, but not the other. The results prove the veracity of that prediction.

Endorsement from HRP would have come had the leadership of the PKR heeded HRP's request on the allocation of land to all the Tamil Schools in Selangor that did not sit on their own land. PKR decided it was not worth the prize requested. That probably cost them this seat.

1725 votes majority means a swing of 865 votes the other way and Zaid would have won instead. This would have been more than achieved had Uthaykumar gone in with the troops for one day.. But PKR probably thought the price of that was too high.

PKR now needs to keep in mind they are not going to get to Putrajaya without paying the due price. That much is clear from these elections. The ball has been in PKR's court for some time now.

We definitely want to see UMNO go, but not to be replaced by a clone.

Hulu S’gor: Why does GT resources have to bail out MAIKA Holdings, why not the BN Government themselves as in all the previous bailouts like the Deposit Taking Co-operatives,Bank Rakyat, MAS, Syarikat Perkapalan.Bank Bumi, Renong etc. And why is there no written commitment about any of the offer yet – why only press statements.

The manipulations of the Indian poor continues in the MAIKA fiasco.This is yet another attempt at pre-election promises and then nothing as always. Do not be fooled.
The MIC/UMNO/BN leaders have decided on the following directly or indirectly:
1) The MAIKA Shareholders will be reimbursed their investments in MAIKA –a ringgit for ringgit.maika holdings logo
2) The company GT resources will be the vehicle which will buy back all the shares of MAIKA from its current shareholders
3) On May 1st GT resources will make that ringgit for ringgit offer for the entire RM 106 million stake.
4) The key player in GT resources Gnanalingam gave an assurance that that MAIKA shareholders will get back their investments within three months of the offer or the 31st of July 2010.
There is a problem with each of these propositions.
Let me quote Gnanalingam, “ We thought a fair system would be to pay back all the shareholders what they have invested even though the company is now valued at only RM 85 million.” NST 23rd April 2010 front page
Contrary to what he said, the ringgit for ringgit payback is only an illusion, it is actually only a 25 sen for a ringgit payback. From 1984 MAIKA has not paid any significant dividend to its shareholders.
In 1987 the Government did a bailout o the 24 Chinese Deposit Taking Cooperatives (DTC) for 1.5 billion ringgits and paid out a ringgit for a ringgit to 588,000 members, mostly Chinese. But the DTCs paid out regular dividends. A ringgit for ringgit under those circumstances was reasonable. Now, if the MIC/UMNO/BN wants to bail out the MAIKA shareholders on the basis of a ringgit for ringgit then it should pay 4 ringgits for each ringgit of investment, as MAIKA has not paid any significant dividend all these 26 years.
Otherwise they must say that they are only paying back a quarter of the money invested by the largely poor 66,000 odd shareholders and not a ringgit for ringgit and create an illusion of equity when in fact they have lost 3 quarters of their investment.
When the BN Government can directly bailout the DTCs in 1987 for RM1.5 billion on a true ringgit for ringgit basis, they should do the same here. They use a private vehicle of GT resources for this purpose to deflect that responsibility.
This tactic aids the Government from accepting any responsibility for the problem, for the loss encountered by the Indian poor due to a program of one of its component parties. MIC did this in response to the NEP of the 1980s where large scale channeling of the National resource went into vehicles like the PNB and created significant dissatisfaction among the Indians and the Chinese. To counter this UMNO encouraged the formation of ethnically orientated capital mobilization vehicles . Arise Multipuprose Holding, arise MAIKA. UMNO/BN has a direct hand in the formation of MAIKA holdings and in inviting all the Indians in the country to invest in what appeared as a PNB/ASN type scheme. But MAIKA obviously was no PNB .
When they bailed out the DTCs or all the failed BUMI owned companies the BN /UMNO Government accepted responsibility outright,they did not use white knights companies. What is so special about this situation that you need a white Knight.Think about the “niat” in all this.
Because Indians do not really matter the best way of dealing with them is the cheapest way. Something necessarily must be done, but what is the cheapest or most expedient way of doing this – that is the niat . Whenever it comes to Indian issues you will see this pattern and these things are very visible during election times. The facts in this case here speaks volumes about that.
In any case, we do not think that the GT resources will make the offer on the 1st of May 2010 to buy back the shares from MAIKA shareholders. This is a Hulu Selangor Election gimmick. Just you wait and see. This is no more than gimmick. If this is not so, then can they issue a legally binding document to this effect, but they do not. Either the MAIKA Holding Management to its shareholders and put it up on the website or from GT resources to MAIKA holdings and put it out on the MAIKA website. They will surely not do this as we see this as just a pre-election gimmick.
Also we do not think that the shareholders will get their cheques by the 31st of July 2010 as Gnanalingam is assuring . All this is just to simply delude. There is no firm commitment to any of these schedules. This is exactly what we have seen all these 52 years from the MIC/UMNO/BN politicians. Just the same theatrics.

UMNO’s social engineering reduce Malaysian Indians to baggers

From rubber tappers to baggers.

A piece of Ethiopia in One Malay-sia. Indian poor couple live on left over restaurant food throw away in UMNO and PKR ruled Selangor.

Indian poor couple live on left over restaurant food throw away in UMNO and PKR ruled Selangor
We have heard stories like this happening in poverty stricken India some forty yearsIndian poor couple ago but today this no longer happens in India but still happens in the UMNO regime in Malay-sia and PKR ruled Selangor. Perhaps this R.Kanniappan (60) would have been better off in India had the British not brought his ancestors to Malaysia.
The picture of the frail, skinny, bone and skin of R.Kanniappan (below) speaks a thousand words.
But why does this happen only to the poor Indians in Malaysia? All other poor Malays, Chinese, Orang asli or natives are unheard of suffering and labouring in this level of poverty.
The former rubber tapper Kanniappan is today unemployed.
The cowshed looking hut Kanniappan and his 59 year old wife stays has no water and electricity. He lives in dirty filthy and dark living conditions. The picture paints a scavenger with no personal belongings in his home. They both have been denied birth certificates identity cards and Malaysian citizenship although they are both born in this country. (MN 21/4/2010 front page and page 10).
This is the result of UMNO’s social engineering. Had UMNO given Kanniappan a piece of the ten acre Felda likeland ownership schemes as granted for the poor Malays, Orang asli and natives, Kaniappan would not be in this position today

Chief Justice but no Justice in P.Uthayakumar’s Kg Medan “ethnic cleansing” criminal malicious prosecution. AG, IGP and UMNO chicken out. Berani kerana benar, takut kerana salah.

lawyer surenthiran Chief Justice but no Justice in P.Uthayakumar’s Kg Medan “ethnic cleansing” criminal malicious prosecution. AG, IGP and UMNO chicken out. Berani kerana benar, takut kerana salah.
K.L 23/4/2010. This morning the Criminal Court proceedings against P.Uthayakumar on his ‘ethnic cleansing’ of Kg Medan Indians came up for hearing of an application for specific documents before High Court Judge Datuk Zabidian Mohamad Diah for the following documents:-
1. All papers and minutes as to why a Royal Commission of Inquiry was denied in the Kg Medan racial attacks specifically targeted against the Indians where five Indians were killed and 100 over others were brutally slashed and caused grievous bodily injuries.
2. All minutes and papers as to why the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia has refused to hold an Inquiry.
3. All papers, minutes and documents on why the Chief Justice and the Attorney General had refused to hold an inquest into the murder of five Indians in the Kg Medan racial attacks tragedy. P2030109 
4. All papers, minutes and documents on why the Attorney General has refused to seriously prosecute for the murder and manslaughter of five Indians and grievous bodily harm and injuries one hundred over Indians.
5. The white paper on Kg Medan to be presented in Parliament. 1 (165)
The Attorney General and UMNO knows how to maliciously prosecute but are refusing to be transparent in handing over the aforesaid documents to P.Uthayakumar to prepare for his ethnic cleansing trial.
Despite P.Uthayakumar’s lawyer N.Surendran’s spot on and right to the point submissions, the said High Court Judge, listened to the AG through his alter ego DPP Noorin Badaruddin and dismissed P.Uthayakumar’s application for the aforesaid documents.
UMNO, the AG and IGP are bent on silencing and by putting P.Uthayakumar in jail for up to three years in Malaysia’s Kangaroo Court which will take UMNO’s instructions.
This aforesaid court decision is testimony to this biased and partiality to UMNO judiciary in Malaysia. So that P.Uthayakumar will again be locked up in prison and so that he will no longer be able to speak up for the poor Indians who are oppressed and suppressed by the UMNO regime.
In Malay-sian Courts right up to the highest Federal Court we will only get racist UMNO justice by the 95% Malay Muslim dominated Judiciary.

Hulu S’gor: Anwar Ibrahim’s PKR Indian Exco mandore’s last minute and desperate MIC style kosong wayang kulit

 samy velu n xavier Hulu S’gor: Anwar Ibrahim’s PKR Indian Exco mandore’s last minute and desperate MIC style kosong wayang kulit
This Chief Selangor Indian Exco mandore is doing his last minute and desperate kosong Tamil newspaper politics by false promises of acres and acres of land for Tamil schools and peanut thousands of Ringgit for Tamil schools in Selangor.
As usual the titles to these Tamil schools are never made public just like how the MIC has been doing in the previous 50 years.
We want an end to this MIC trademark and PKR’s ably aped and trademark infringement mandore politics. We want all 98 Tamil schools in Selangor to be granted state government land so that this ‘malnourishment’ of these Tamil schools would be put to an end when the UMNO Federal government would be forced to give them full financial aid status, as the schools would be located on their own land.
And also that these MIC and PKR Exco mandores can no longer play ‘mahjong’ and keep on telling us stories of Tamil school land here and Tamil school land there just to remain politically relevant by their kosong Tamil newspaper politics.
This PKR Indian Exco mandore dishes out peanuts of a few thousand ringgit for this or that Tamil school. But why can’t he get his Tuan Menteri Besar to grant RM120 million or RM6 million per Tamil school, as was given to the 99% Malay Muslim Maktab Rendah Sains Mara Trolak and the Hulu Selangor Chinese school respectively! Millions for the Malays and Chinese but “mere Tamil newspaper announcements of peanuts thousands, but even then which works out to a mere RM100 per head per year for Tamil school pupils.
End MIC and PKR, DAP and PAS copied Mandorism by the Tuans and Tow Kays!

chief justice Memorandum by peoples Progressive Party (Dr. Seenivasagam (18/7/1956)  
Appointment of Judges – to implement a policy of “Malaysianisation” by indiscriminate appointment of Judges without sufficient regard to their suitability is bound to plunge the country into chaos and destroy public confidence in the administration of Justice. Proviso in Constitution that for some time Judges from India and Pakistan are to serve in Malaya.
Today after 53 years of independence this concern has become a reality. One race dominates the judiciary.
Today 95% of the Malaysian Judiciary has become reserved for the Malay muslims, however qualified or deserving the Indians or Chinese may be (see UM 17/4/10 at page 7).
Even up to in the 1980s’ the No 2 job in the Judiciary ie the post of the Chief Justice was held by Justice Gill.
There is zero Indian Judges in the federal court. Indians in this country are well known and calibred lawyers but they do not accordingly get chosen to become judges simply because they are Indians.
This level of racism does not happen in any other part of the world except in Prime Minister Najib Razak’s One Malay-sia.

Hulu S’gor: UMNO menafikan bekalan elektrik kepada Sekolah Tamil Eskot

UMNO menafikan bekalan elektrik kepada Sekolah Tamil Eskot
url Escort 
tamil school TANJUNG MALIM, 10 April – Sekolah Tamil Eskot diselubungi kegelapan sejak 50 tahun yang lalu kerana tiada bekalan elektrik. “Walaupun Kerajaan di bawah pimpinan UMNO sudah memerintah negara lebih daripada 52 tahun namun Ahli Parlimen kawasan tersebut tidak mengambil sebarang usaha untuk mendapatkan bekalan elektrik bagi sekolah tersebut,” kata Ahli Parlimen Sungkai Sivanesan. Malah sekolah ini juga tiada kemudahan bekalan air. Kini sekolah tersebut mempunyai jumlah murid seramai 59 orang. Dan 45% daripada murid tersebut telah lulus dalam peperiksaan UPSR.   
UMNO menafikan bekalan elektrik kepada 
sekolah tamil Eskot 3Komen HRP: Dari jumlah sebanyak RM191.5 Bilion yang telah diperuntukkan dalam bajet 2010, RM30 Bilion telah diagihkan untuk pembinaan 80 buah sekolah baru, 1,100 bangunan tambahan dan 347 projek pemindahan sekolah (school replacement projects). Namun usaha untuk menukar sekolah-sekolah tamil kepada sekolah bantuan penuh seperti sekolah tamil Eskot masih tidak dapat direalisasikan daripada jumlah yang diagihkan khas untuk bahagian sekolah. Ini jelas menunjukkan bahawa sekolah-sekolah Tamil masih ke hari ini dinafi untuk dijadikan sebagai sekolah yang mendapat bantuan penuh kerajaan. Malah air dan bekalan elektrik dinafikan. Gagasan 1 Malay-sia? Rakyat Didahulukan …?
