2008 - ANOTHER NEW YEAR - NEW BEGINNING, ASPIRATIONS AND HOPE

Year 2007 is just about to be history. To some it will be the best year but to some, it would be memories they do not want to recall. Many things has happen, some good and some bad. But life needs to go on. Human cycle in this world is like this.

The Indian community seem to celebrate this coming year with the hope that our BN government will enlighten their lives with a new and concrete programme. Prayers are conducted everywhere for the early release of their 'heroes' from Kamunting Detention Centre who had bravely made the Malaysians realise that the Indians have been marginally sidelined by the present government.

Whatever the state, let's live in peace and harmony among the communities and make Malaysia proud.

SELAMAT TAHUN BARU 2008
another year and another step ahead.

HINDRAF LEADER, P. WAYTHAMOORTHY MEETS MALAYSIAN INDIANS IN LONDON


HINDRAF leader P Waythamoorthy met Malaysian Indians at Manor Park, London today to explain their stand. The meeting was attended by more than 50 Malaysian Indians residing in the United Kingdom.

It was revealed that a leaflet protest would be distributed to everyone at Trafalgar Square sometime this coming week to create an awareness that Malaysian Indians have been marginalised in Malaysia after more than 50 years of Independence. It is hoped that the Malaysian government will immediately look into the plights of the Indian community and give whatever assistance to uplift their deplorable state currently faced by this community.

Malaysian Indians are now more united in this battle for fairness and if the ruling Barisan Nasional were to ignore their claims, the Barisan Nasional will lose the coming polls expected sometime next year since the Indian votes are crucial for the coalition party.

FEDERAL COURT REJECTS SUBASHINI'S ACTION

The Federal Court today ruled that the Syariah Court cannot dissolve a civil marriage and all dissolutions made by the Syariah Court is only effective within the confines of Islamic Law.

In a landmark decision, Federal Court judge Justice Nik Hashim Nik Ab Rahman said a non-Muslim marriage does not automatically dissolve when one of the parties converts to Islam and the husband and wife were bound by the 1976 Act (Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) in respect to divorce and custody of the children of the marriage, and thus, the civil court continues to have jurisdiction over him, notwithstanding his conversion to Islam.

In a 2-1 majority judgment, Justice Nik Hashim said by embracing Islam, Saravanan (the husband) and his eldest son (who also a convert) became subject to Muslim personal and religious laws. It is not an abuse of process, if he, being a Muslim, seeks remedies in the Syariah High Court as it is his right to do so.

It was noted that the non-Muslim marriage between the husband and wife remains intact and continues to subsist until the High Court dissolves it pursuant to a petition for divorce by the unconverted spouse under Section 51(1) of the 1976 Act and there is no impediment for the converted husband to appear in the divorce proceeding in the High Court.

He said the contention that the wife could submit to the jurisdiction of the Syariah Court and have recourse to Section 53 of the 1993 Act are not quite correct as the Act limits its jurisdiction to Muslims only.

The judges said that on conversion, either husband or wife has the right to convert a child of the marriage to Islam.

SAMY VELLU BOOED ON "LIVE ASTRO TV" SHOW

This is the video clip of the controversial Astro Vaanavil show:

video video

Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) President and Cabinet Minister, Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu was publicly humiliated during a Indian cultural show by the booed when he turn up to officiate the Aattam 100 Vagai 3 performance organised by Astro Vaanavil (Channel 201) at the Penang International Sports Area (PISA) on Sunday night.

The Indian crowd of more than 2,000 people shouted obscenities at him (watch video clips above) and did not allow him to complete his officiating speech. It is reported that women in the audience appeared more aggressive in admonishing Samy Vellu, which surprised him and everyone present.

Malaysian Indians have finally awakened as never before. HINDRAF has finally succeeded in their quest to create a wake-up call on Malaysian Indians that they have been systematically marginalised by the Malaysian government.

Is this the end of Samy Vellu's political career, the MIC and of the Barisan Nasional ?

Indian Malaysians no longer fools
Mohd Kamal Abdullah Dec 24, 07 5:02pm
(my comments as it appears in Malaysiakini online news today)

The MIC need to realise that the recent uprising has highlighted their weakness in addressing the problems of Indians and this is not confined to MIC alone. Merely informing and debating the matter within the MIC will not resolve this matter.

As MIC president, Samy Vellu needs to hold an open forum for the Indian community and form a task force of capable community leaders to solve the current Indian crisis. If the task is given solely to MIC, it would be a total failure. They have already failed at performing the task. Further, MIC would use this as a political platform to show that they are the so-called “champions of the Indians.”

Indians are peaceful people by nature. They know that they have been marginalised and request some assistance to bring their community back on track. When the estates were restructured, Indians were forced to move out and were unable to cope with this new culture. The government then should have made sure that these Indians were prepared for the realities of a new life. Most Indians have failed to compete with the world outside the estates.

If the government is sincere in hearing the truth, efforts should be spearheaded by the prime minister himself or by MCA president Ong Ka Ting. I am sure that Indians will feel more comfortable with this arrangement rather than Samy Vellu resorting to his “gangster tactics” to “do what I say, I know best.” Indians are no longer fools.

The recent protest has given a clear message. It is up to Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to decide whether he wants to resolve the Indian dilemma or face the toughest general election in the history of our nation.
PARANJOTHY AND HISHAMMUDDIN - BOTH TO BE DISCIPLINED

S. Paranjothy, the Vice Chairman of Gerakan Youth had voiced that the BN government had sidelined the Indian community for so long and has treated them as fourth class citizen while this voice came in support of the current crisis which was spearheaded by HINDRAF. It was reported that disciplinary action is underway against Paranjothy.

In the meantime, UMNO Youth Chief, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, had given an ultimatum to Gerakan to clarify this matter and also had demanded that Gerakan expel and take action against Paranjothy. This direct interference by a UMNO leader is in breach of the principles of BN, which should treat every Party in the coalition as equal partners.

Although Gerakan Chief, Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, had expressed is dissatisfaction for the interference, but nothing concrete had been forthcoming.

If any action were to be taken against Paranjothy for expressing the truth, then Hishammuddin should also be sacked for making a statement of interference while the 'keris waiving' issue is still at large.

Hishammuddin fail to realise that these sort of issues were actually spearheaded by UMNO to gain support of the Malays and fail to realise their consequences. They only realise something wrong when another community express their dissatisfaction openly to show their concern for their respective community.

What is right for a particular community is WRONG for UMNO since it undermines the position of UMNO within the Malays.

Will UMNO take disciplinary action against Hishammuddin?

FLOOD SITUATION WORSENS

It is reported that the flood situation is getting worst with rising flood waters and so far 5 States have evacuated almost 34,000 people to temporary shelters which are stationed at schools. A few lives have already been claimed, bring the death toll to 28. School term is expected to begin on January 3 nationwide.

Malaysia's Meteorological Department has warned that the monsoon season now is expected to continue bringing heavy rainfall, together with strong winds.

The worst-hit State, Pahang, have a total of 22,754 people who have been evacuated from their homes. Other States affected by the yearly floods include Terengganu and Kelantan, Johor and Kedah.

Government relief agencies have been instructed to rush food and essential supplies to the affected evacuees as water levels continued to rise, while complicating rescue and relief efforts carried out.

The annual year-end monsoons bring heavy rainfall, which typically sparks flooding in all of Malaysia's coastal states, forcing thousands of people to evacuate their homes.

Probe AG for ill-conceived attempted murder charge
(my comments as published in MALAYSIAKINI ONLINE today)

The 31 Hindraf protesters who were denied bail by the Shah Alam Magistrates’ Court on the application of attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail clearly reflects how the Barisan Nasional government treats poor and weak rakyat.

It is very clear that these 31 protesters comprised of lorry drivers, students and labourers who merely wanted to participate in the peaceful assembly to support it and make the government realise that Indian Malaysians have been marginalised. Despite empty promises made at each election, they have faithfully voted the ruling party to power.

The fabricated charge of causing hurt to the police officer seems really absurd. The government and attorney-general has stooped so low in prosecuting these innocent people just to prove that they are strong, powerful and can do anything. From this episode, it is clear that there is no justice for the poor, ordinary rakyat. The rich and powerful can create any situation to cause harm to these poor souls.

Since meeting with Indian NGOs on Friday, Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has agreed to advise the attorney-general to review the case and drop all charges against these innocent victims.

It is very clear that the rakyat need to investigate the grounds on which the attorney-general himself had to attend to these simple matters. He has many capable assistants but chose to champion an unwanted cause himself and gave the wrong picture to the rakyat. The presiding judge must have been surprised by the presence of the AG and consented to the request out of fear of reprimand.

These poor 31 Hindraf protesters have been victims of this unjust system. There is no compensation for the ill-feelings and hatred these victims, their families and supporters have for our “crook” system.

ATTORNEY-GENERAL WITHDRAWS ATTEMPTED MURDER CHARGE ON 31 HINDRAF DETAINEES

The Attorney-General, Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Patail had today withdrawn the attempted murder charge against the 31 HINDRAF protesters now detained at Sungei Buloh Prison.

They had all (26 of them) been granted bail of RM500 each and the sentencing has been fixed on 27 December 2007 while six murder accused were freed without their defence being called which include the students.

With this issue, the time has come for the rakyat to demand an explanation from the Attorney-General Abdul Ghani on how he could frame the attempted murder charge when these 31 protesters were having a peaceful but illegal (according to the authorities) on November 25, 2007 although the Federal Constitutions provides for a peaceful protest by any group to express their discontentment.

The AG should now be taken to task.

If the explanation is unfavourable by the Attorney-General, he needs to be sacked and sentenced to atleast 10 years in jail for not performing his duties as entrusted by the rakyat. Only then, will future government officials perform their task according to the rule of law.

Let's hear what the AG has to say NOW.
POLICE FOIL HINDRAF GATHERING AT KAMUNTING

This morning, the police stopped almost 1,000 supporters of HINDRAF who wanted to gather at Kamunting Detention Centre to show the authorities that the 5 HINDRAF leaders who were arrested under ISA was done under malice and ill-fate, since they had only voiced the grievances of the Indian community through peaceful means that the Malaysian Indians had been neglected and marginalised by the government since Independence in 1957.

The families of the detainees were also holding a prayer sessions at a nearby temple.

The police had mobilised water cannons standby at the site and used psychological tactics to frighten the peaceful protesters.

There were no reports of any incident reported.

PM ABDULLAH AHMAD BADAWI MEETS INDIAN NGO REPS

Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Prime Minister Malaysia, met 14 NGO leaders and representatives at his office at Putra Jaya today together with MIC President, Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu. It is learned that PM Abdullah was deeply concerned with the plight of the Malaysian Indians and had given his personal assurance to look into their matter.

PM Abdullah further stressed the importance of using the ISA on the 5 HINDRAF leaders and requested these leaders to explain to the Indian community that it was done to maintain stability and peace in our country.

The first step towards the plight of the Indians has already commenced.
A LEGAL MOCKERY

It has been reported that the 31 Malaysian Indians refused bail and who have been remanded at Sungei Buloh Prison are ordinary people. The list of persons are as follows:

1. SS Ganishen, 39, lorry driver.
2. K Raju, 42, driver.
He is hard of hearing on one side.
3. R Sakthivel, 34, technician.
In court, he told reporters that he left his bike when he passed by the Batu Caves temple to see what was happening. When he returned to his bike, the police arrested him.
4. K Ganapathy, 38, lorry driver.
5. K Sukumaran, 24, foreman.
6. S Kumaran, 25, farmer.
7. B Varatharaju, 32, foreman.
8. M Kuna Sekaran, 24, machine operator.
9. V Ganeson, 40, lorry driver.
10. L Thiyagarajan, 31, sales executive.
11. S Gunaa, 21, is a farmer.
He only gets salary when there is work.
12. K Thinagaranpillay, 23, manager.
13. N Balamohan, 23, part-time worker.
14. K Gopinath, 27, store keeper.
15. R Suresh, 24, runs his own business.
16. G Suman, 20, runs his own business.
17. M Buwenthiran, 24, technician.
18. M Pushparathan, 21, technician.
19. S Tail Arasu, 26, despatch boy.
20. N Ramasamy, 43, is a driver.
He is also a kidney patient. He showed his dialysis card in court but this was dismissed by judge Azimah as it did necessarily prove his health condition.
21. S Ramash Kumar,22, student.
22. R Pushpanathan,19, despatch boy.
23. S Mugilan Dever, 20, student.
24. G Thinesh Kumar, 19, foreman.
25. T Kunalan, 28, machine operator.
26. S Sures, 18, car-tinter.
He has a hole in the heart.
27. A Vasantarao, 19, student.
28. N Markandan, 54, odd-job worker.
29. K Raghu, 39, technician.
30. A Rayar, 30, His occupation is unknown.
He had an engagement ceremony planned on Dec 7 that had to be cancelled.
31. S Ravi, 33, lorry driver.

Righfully, a peaceful demonstration is allowable and it is provided for in the Malaysian Constitution. Involving the Attorney-General personally in this matter seems very surprising and this had once again tarnish the legal circle in Malaysia.

These people had just participated in a peaceful demonstration and never knew the contents of claim and for this crime to be 'cooked-up' is that they have harm a police personnel is just unbelievable.

The government and legal circle need to realise that 'for every action there is equal and opposite reaction' and TIME will tell.

The said act clearly demonstrate the suppressing of the poor by the strong, powerful and wealthy institution.

Its time for the BN government to realise that these will NOT stop the Malaysian Indian community from demanding for their rights as a equal partner in the country, and all this marginalising so far NEED TO STOP once and for all.

To avoid further mistrust with the government, it would be best for these 31 people to be released and their matter dismissed by the Court, to protect the good image of our country internationally and to live in peace and harmony.

AN UNHAPPY MALAYSIA

It has been reported today that the government has arrested five(5) leaders of HINDRAF namely P. Uthayakumar, M. Manoharan, R. Kenghadharan, V. Ganabatirau and T. Vasanthakumar, under the Internal Security Act. This action was expected to come but since the current leadership had always claimed to be clean and fair, this latest action had taken the country by surprise and the Barisan Nasional will face the stiffest election in the coming polls. It is predicted that they may even lose the coming polls due to their uncaring, ineffective, inefficient and corrupt nature.

One thing the government need to realise is that they have lost the Indian votes at this moment. The struggle for the Indian rights will continue. Even the legal advisor for HINDRAF Uthayakumar had made a video clip http://www.malaysiakini.tv/?vid=1535 and http://www.malaysiakini.tv/?vid=1534 advising his supporters to keep continuing their struggle until the government concede to their demands.

Malaysia will be experiencing its darkest moment in the days to come with many more demonstrations and protest. The Barisan Nasional government will be eventually shamed for taking this drastic form of action against the minority group which had claimed for its rights to be restored as a citizen of Malaysia.

MORE ARREST ON THE WAY, WARNS THE BN LEADERS

It is been notified that more arrest on demonstrators and protesters of the so-called illegal rallies held a couple of weeks ago will be underway.

The Barisan Nasional (BN) leadership seem to be very unsecured at this moment and fear that their support is diminishing drastically with many more planned and informed protest or demonstration. The Police on the other hand, seem to be securing Court Orders just to keep these people from having a peaceful rally which is clearly provided for under the Federal Constitution. The Courts and the Attorney-General Chambers are creating a mockery by condoning to the actions of the Police and the ruling government. These law officials are granting these Orders and refusing bail in fear of their respective positions. Such a shame that qualified in the specified field, they are interpreting them wrongly and creating a mockery of the situation.

All these institutions fail to realise that they will be answerable to the rakyat and not to the BN leaders or authorities.

The PEOPLE'S POWER is about to rise and all these Institutions will face heavy casualties.

Just undermining the trust given by the rakyat until this time is already a great conciliation.

Its time for the ruling BARISAN NASIONAL to admit that they have failed in performing their duties as entrusted and graceful 'get lost'.

Let the rakyat give its new mandate to a more able, clean and effective group to manage the nation who will be able to resolve all pending issues and treat every citizen equally.

Malaysia is for all Malaysians.
PM ABDULLAH & BN LEADERS NOT HEELING RAKYATS' VOICE

It is very clear that the rakyat need to over throw this inefficient, ineffective, uncaring and corrupt Barisan Nasional from forming the next government. Every BN candidate should be made to lose their deposit to show how discontented the rakyat is with them.

It does not matter whether the next fresh government has no experience. As long as they are going to be a clean and effective government would do.

Its time the BN leadership understand that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. They make amendments to their whims and fancy, just to stay in office. They use government infrastructure to remain in power. The use government machinery to frighten the rakyat.

The rakyat has voiced its displeasure and rather than studying the matter, they carry them out, just to show they have all the power. This power will ruin these socalled YBs (Yang BerBODOHs) from BN.

We need to STAND UP like this (I HAVE A DREAM) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEMXaTktUfA so that this injustice is a matter of the past.

The TIME has come for the rakyat to display their POWER. Then only will the BN government understand.

Time for drastic action by the rakyat should immediately commence until the BN government starts running out with their pants down.......

FESTIVAL OF RIGHTS RALLY TODAY

The Human Rights Day was observed in Malaysia today. The Bar Council which had earlier organised to have a march from Sogo in Kuala Lumpur had to cancel this event after been instructed by the Police.

Even then, a group of lawyers had carried out this march and this is the video clip which is self-explanatory http://www.malaysiakini.tv/?vid=1521 .

These clearly shows how arogant the police force are towards the members of the public. Its time for the rakyat to show the police force that they are SERVANTS OF THE RAKYAT and they need abide by the rakyat say.

Its TIME FOR THE RAKYAT to demand an explanation from the police force or to demand that a inquiry be formed to investigate into the abuses created by the police force against the rakyat immediately.

MALAYSIAN IDENTITY UNDER SIEGE

Since the HINDRAF peaceful demonstration of November 25, 2007 and the BERSIH peaceful rally on 10 November 2007, Malaysians are faced with many important questions as regards to their FREEDOM and identity.

HINDRAF or Hindu Rights Action Force claims that the affirmative action practiced in Malaysia is victimising them to the extend that their plight is not considered. The Malaysian Indians claim that they are totally neglected by the present government and feel that their community is facing a crisis and require government intervention so that some form of immediate assistance is given to uplift their community to enjoy a reasonable living.

In the meantime, BERSIH or Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections claims that there is NO FREEDOM in the election process and every election had been manipulated by the ruling Barisan Nasional government, and as such, had handed a memorandum to the Agong (King) to seek his Highness assistance to conduct a total review of the Election Commission so that a clean and fair elections can be held with the coming polls, expected sometime next year.

But as usual, the Barisan Nasional government, that governs the country, refutes both these allegations as baseless.

A search conducted had revealed that a group had created a video clip in Youtube named M for Malaysia - Past, Present and Future http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EY-ZfuYSJx8 when viewed highlights the emotional feelings of the rakyat.

If the present government does not take steps to address these allegations immediately in a diligent manner, the ruling Barisan Nasional will surely be voted out by the rakyat. The government had been branded inefficient, ineffective and corrupt with no care for the ordinary poor rakyat's well-being.

31 HINDRAF PROTESTORS DENIED BAIL

This morning, at the Shah Alam Sessions Court, Judge Azimah Omar denied bail under national security reasons while basing on the severity of the charges to remand all 31 HINDRAF demonstrators involved in the killing of a policeman at Batu Caves on November 25.

There was chaos in court.

PM ABDULLAH AHMAD BADAWI SHOULD PERSONALLY MEET HINDRAF LEADERS

With growing tension arising in the Malaysian Indian community over they been marginalised, it would be in the best interest of Malaysian Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to meet them quickly to resolve or listen to their woes, and make his own assessment.

The Malaysian Indians have lost confidence with the Barisan Nasional Indian parties like MIC ,Gerakan or PPP, since they have been giving false promises. Datuk Seri S. SamyVellu, the President of MIC, had failed to look after the welfare of the Indians at large but only concentrated on his 'close' MIC members only. Even ordinary MIC members have expressed their disappointment that they are treated like 'dogs' when they turn up to meet SamyVellu at his office or at his home. Favouritism is always given to the divisional and higher ranking MIC officials by Samy Vellu.

Just claiming to be the champion of the Indian cause, SamyVellu had failed to perform effectively for all Malaysian Indians, irrespective of their status and/or political belief and he needs to accept, this failure and graceful withdraw from claiming to be the 'champion of the Indians'.

The Malaysian Indians are expecting PM Abdullah to personally oversee their problem and resolve them.

The Malaysian Indians would rather have MCA leaders to head this task force rather than the MIC itself. From these, the PM can gauge the disappointment and dissatisfaction the Malaysian Indians have towards the leadership of MIC. The Malaysian Indians feel that the MIC had taken them for a ride and it may be true that the Barisan Nasional may have assisted the Indians but this assistance where only enjoyed by the 'close' people circulating around SamyVellu. SamyVellu himself is quite arrogant and unapproachable most of the time.

When Hindu temples were about to be torn-down, there were no sight of MIC leaders or SamyVellu himself. This proves that 'tidak-apa' attitude exist with SamyVellu and his leaders.

The confidence of the MIC to look into the welfare of the Malaysian Indians will never happen and that is the reason why a huge crowd seems to be supporting HINDRAF, who had created awareness that the Indian community in Malaysia had been sidelined.

The time has come for PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to personally attend to this matter quickly before it gets out of hand. Leaders like Nazri and Zam are just 'nobody' and do not care for anyone other than themselves and also hope to gain cheap publicity that they care for the Malay interest. It needs to be noted that many Malays have expressed their support that Malaysian Indians are marginalised and need government support.

The Indians are crucial in the voting system and any misunderstanding would create the ruling government, Barisan Nasional to lose the coming polls.

It is all up to Badawi.............if he wants to see BN to continue or NOT.

HELLO PM BADAWI - 1 WEEK TO MEET HINDRAF LEADERS TO RESOLVE

The Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) had given Malaysian Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to meet them to resolve the matters for which memorandums have been submitted to him a couple of months ago. The HINDRAF leaders have decided to shelve all their plans for a week, to give PM Badawi the opportunity to meet and resolve the pending matters amicably.

Its been learned that these HINDRAF leaders are about to commence a tour to gather support from a few 'big' powers to strengthen their claim.

It should be commendated that these leaders are prepared to settle the problem faced by the minority group in Malaysia and find an amicable settlement favourable to all parties.

Its now up to PM Badawi to respond...............

TIME FOR HINDRAF TO 'COOL-OFF'

HINDRAF would urgently need to stop any further form of action if they really want to help the Indian community in Malaysia. Their actions have now been seriously considered by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. We need to appreciate their contribution in creating awareness among the leadership that the Indian community had been 'suppressed' for such a long time, even though they had contributed considerably to nation building.

The government will now focus on improving the lives of the Indians, since the Cabinet had ask for a task force to investigate and report to it. Maybe, the leaders who claim to champion for the Indians cause, may have been the 'culprits' and Indians had been given empty promises that their welfare will be looked into. It may be time for these so-called 'champions' to quit and let capable and efficient leaders to undertake this task. We must take into account that Datuk Seri S. SamyVellu had done a lot but the communities expectations are far too great and maybe he must have only help those who are 'close' to him and the MIC. The problem would have lied there.

But whatever the circumstances, the Indians must be happy that their plight is now considered and as usual, nothing could be done overnight.

The Indians had patiently waited all these years, why not give Pah Lah a few more months to overcome most of the displeasure, but all this will only happen if HINDRAF stop immediately any form of action that they have planned.................

RASHID TO BLAME FOR 'BERSIH RALLY'

It has finally been revealed that the Pengerusi of Suruhanraya Pilihanraya Malaysia (SPR), Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman was the main cause of intimidating the rakyat to send a memorandum to the Agong. This was disclosed to a delegation by Rashid on 3 July, 2007 as reported by Setiausaha Sekretariat Bersih, Faisal Mustaffa today. A tape recording of this meeting is available and it is hope that it will be made available to the rakyat by Internet means so that everyone can access and hear the conversation made.

The Barisan Nasional leadership need to make a IMMEDIATE apology to the rakyat for wrongfully undermining the rakyat's intentions. The Police should immediately withdraw all charges against every demonstrator and make BN pay compensation to every victim hurt or harshed by the police force. No public funds should be used. All BN component parties need to foot the bill or face bankruptcy.

Rashid should be sacked immediately and the SPR revamped with new and able leaders.

The Agong to resolve all pending matters immediately without consulting the BN government or its leaders. A White Paper should be recommended to look into the allegations made.

All BN leaders who had made irresponsible remarks should gracefully resign or be immediately SACKED.

The rakyat's confidence in the government institution to be immediately resolved.

The TIME OF CHANGE has begun....................
BREAKING THE 'CLASS' TRADITION IN MALAYSIAN SOCIETY

Since the demonstration of HINDRAF on 25 November 2007, many views have been made, some to the extend that HINDRAF is just mentioning about Malaysian Indians of hindu origin and their plight. It needs to be realised that the group had witnessed the demolition of hindu temples and in certain cases, the relocation of the hindu temples were to unfavorable locations, like next to a sewage pond. I am sure any GOD fearing individuals will protest to this call. The group had prepared its grievances and have forwarded them to the relevant authorities but nothing had been forthcoming.

Due to the great success of the demonstration, estimated more than 30,000 people despite every level of control by our 'inefficient' police force, the focus of attention had been diverted to religious sentiments, which could be classified as 'seditious'.

The factor that the authorities fail to highlight is the treatment of Indians. Malaysian Indians are classified under the category of 'non-bumiputra' in the Malaysian society, together with the Chinese and others, and they are treated like second and third class citizens in their own country where they are born. These group are deprived of many privileges as enshrined by the Federal Constitution.

This is where the root of the problem. Malaysia practises 'CLASS CULTURE' similarly like the caste system in India.

Everyone feels that 50 years is more than enough to uplift a certain community that had expected assistance. If the government had failed to bridge the gap of disparity, then the government is to be blamed. I am sure no Malaysian wants to see his fellow Malaysian deprived of a decent living. But the 'spoon-feeding' of the Bumiputras need to be STOP. If this group does not want to stand on its own feet after 50 years of assistance, it will never happen, even after another 100 years. Certain people have exploited these privileges to the extend of becoming millionaires, and neglecting their own fellow bumiputras since they are in an 'influential' position. These are the flaws that the Malaysian society wants to stop and address.

To attack directly against the concept had failed on numerous occasions. Internal Security Act (ISA) is been used or threatened to be used to diffuse these people.

The TIME HAS COME for the government to have a new agenda if the present government wants to continue in power. Treat every citizen equally and fairly. There may be instances where a particular group may need assistance, give them but this need to be clearly expressed that this offering will expire in 5 years from now. Then every citizen will be declassified as 'BUMIPUTRAS' irrespective of their culture, religion or race.

I am sure these ill-feelings will never arise and we can live in peace and harmony as one HAPPY MALAYSIAN SOCIETY.

THE MERDEKA DILEMMA

I am surprise to find out that the Malaysian Malays are retaliating by emailing the 'Speech delivered by Tun V.T. Sambanthan in the Dewan Rakyat (Parliament) on 1st June 1965', which reads as follows::

"Now, in 1955 we won the elections with a great majority. Then we obtained freedom in two years time. During this period, we had to discuss citizenship and various other things. Now, what did the Malays do – since we are speaking on racial lines – what did the Malay leadership do? They had 88 percent of the electorate still with them. What did they do with citizenship? If we look around in Asia and in East Asia, particularly, you will find that my race the Indian race, is not welcomed in Ceylon, is not welcomed in Burma. Look at my brother Chinese race, it is not welcomed in Thailand, in Vietnam, in Cambodia, in all the other areas. What help do they get for citizenship in all these territories? In Burma, as we know, Indians have been send packing, in Ceylon they refused them citizenship and in Burma it is likewise. I know it, you know it. And yet in Malaya what happened? Here, we found that the Malay leadership said, "We shall take them unto ourselves as brothers, we shall give them full opportunity to live in this country, we shall give them every opportunity to become citizens". And so, in 1957, for the whole year, we waived language qualifications, and tens of thousands of Indians, Chinese, Ceylonese and others became citizens."

This speech is history and lets leave it as it is. Its not going to benefit anyone, since many changes has happened subsequent to this incident.

Its been half a century now since Independence and its time for every citizen to be treated equally and fairly. There should be no disparity between the communities except for the natives or Orang Asli, since they are still backward.

Every community has struggle to secure the Independence of this nation and it may be time that they treat everyone as brothers and sisters. Then, this sort of incidence will never occur.

Let's face reality.

K. DEVAMANY FACTOR

It needs to be noted that the courage of MIC Member of Parliament K Devamany for standing up for the HINDRAF rally on sunday, particularly in reference to violence been used by these protestors. Although MIC chief, Datuk Seri S. SamyVellu had earlier announced that any member could support the intended rally on their personal capacity, but the party feels that through discussions, problems of the community could be resolved if the leaders of HINDRAF were to approach him.

Breaking his usual routine, where he is forced to accept every action of the Barisan Nasional, whether right or wrong. Devamany's supported that a review of the Indians position need to be seriously considered should be appreciated and the government should immediately set-up a committee to look into the areas where the Indians require assistance and attention.

A video clip on this issue been discussed at the Dewan Rakyat (Parliament) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3ZgbqJAtX0

It is known knowledge that every Malaysian race has its weaknesses, but since the Indians had demanded that their plight be considered, the government need to adhere since in most election areas, the deciding votes that the BN secured were from the Indians.

If the government fail to remedy any weaknesses, it will have a drastic effect. The BN government will lose this coming polls for sure.

The government need to realise the TIME OF CHANGE HAS BEGUN and they can expect many more unpleasant incidents to happen to show the rakyat's dissatisfaction towards them.

WAKE UP and look into them, before its too late..............

THREE HINDRAF LEADER'S SEDITIOUS CHARGES DISCHARGED BY COURT

At the Klang Sessions Court today, the three keys leaders who were arrested and were charged for seditions charges, their case was discharged without being acquitted by Judge Zunaidah Mohd Idris. It was informed that the prosecution had failed to submit the tamil translation of the alleged seditious remarks by these HINDRAF leaders that they had relied on.

It seems that our police force have wasted public funds for this unlawful arrest, and had also created a mockery of themselves in the eyes of the law. The arrest was meant to frighten the minority population in Malaysia from not taking part in the so-called illegal but peaceful demonstration at Kuala Lumpur on sunday as provided for by the Federal Constitution.

Sunday's rally had show the authorities that the times have changed and the rakyat are going to demand for equal status since every citizen irrespective of the culture, religion and race are entitled to.

Time for the authorities and the government to understand the feelings of the rakyat and make whatever adjustment quickly, failing which it is forecasted that the present government will be overthrown in the coming polls.

HINDRAF RALLY TODAY DESPITE POLICE WARNING

It had been reported by Malaysiakini today http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/75250, that people were gathered in support of the memorandum to claim that the ethnical indians have been discriminated for the past 150 years, initially by the colonial masters, British and since independence in 1957 by the malay dominated Malaysian government http://english.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/53685CBD-40D4-4AC3-B354-73BBC2DA7D51.htmt.

This is the live coverage of the rally by Al Jazeeza TV :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m96FCTKHNA8.

A couple of days ago, the police had obtained a court order to stop the indians from demonstrating at the British High Commission at Jalan Ampang at Kuala Lumpur on this sunday. But the police have never been given the right to use force, like tear-gas, chemical water cannon and unlawful arrest of against the peaceful demonstrators. This is a clear breach of their duties and undertaking of the court order.

Its time for the Malaysian government to seriously take into consideration the plight of the non-bumiputra population and to address their problems before the situation get out of hand. It should be noted the Malays from UMNO had demonstrated at a few ocassions to express their dissatisfaction and in support but nothing like these had been done, except the police had kept vigilante.

It is further expected that the coming general election that is expected to be held by 2008 will see a major change of elected leaders from the present government represenative to the Opposition in wake of dissatisfaction of the rakyat until and unless the present government resolves these issues at hand.

On the other hand, the so-called party that claims to represent the indians , the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) have been reported as saying that the dissatisfaction should not be taken to the streets but must be done by discussions http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/75254.

HINDRAF LEGAL COUNSEL ARRESTED UNDER SEDITIOUS CHARGES

It has been reported this morning that the police have arrested Mr. P. Uthayakumar, the legal representative of Hindraf (Hindu Rights Action Force), who are planning a massive gathering of at least more than 100,000 people under the Seditious Act.

With this police action, will the sunday rally be called-off? It seems that the people will be gather much more than expected to support the memorandum and also to show support to Uthayakumar.

The police action has tarnished the Malaysian reputation and image that something is drastically wrong and the government wants to cover-up by arresting the people involved.

This is in clear breach of human rights.

Will the government and police ever learn.

'KAYVEAS - TAIPING IS MINE' A BIG JOKE

It has been reported in Malaysiakini today http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/75081 that Datuk M. Kayveas claims that Taiping is his parliament seat.

Kayveas fail to realise that being a non-member of PPP(People's Progressive Party), he disqualifies himself of being a Barisan Nasional candidate. With the current judicial scandal, it is hoped that Kayveas manipulation of court cases and subsequent false recognisation by the Registrar of Societies will surface and Kayveas, being a leagal officer of the courts need to be severely punished for undermining the court process and for 'cheating' the government department.

Taiping is GERAKAN's allocation by the Barisan Nasional. Due to their generosity, GERAKAN had allowed Kayveas to contest the last general elections. So, how can Kayveas claim Taiping is his?

The PPP, day by day is dwindling in membership. Puteri UMNO itself had self-explained the strength of PPP. Until Kayveas is able to increase membership (only after he becomes a lawful member) can he demand for any seat.

The time has come for the Barisan Nasional leadership to expel PPP and Kayveas from their fold. Kayveas frequently seeks publicity to keep himself alive. Kayveas would go to any extend to achieve these goals. The BN is been created a laughing stock by him and still BN is keeping this 'big mouth' and power-crazy man.

Time for BN to act by expelling PPP from its coalition. Then, Kayveas and his conmen can contest every seat. PPP will then be doomed.

HINDRAF RALLY THIS SUNDAY - IT WILL HAPPEN IRRESPECTIVE OF THE WARNING

It needs to be noted that the Indian community is really fed-up with the attitude of the Barisan Nasional government for neglecting their plight even though it is a known fact that many of the Parliamentary and State Legislative seats really depend on the voting pattern of this Indian community. Barisan Nasional had always depended on them and the indian community had always been faithful in delivering their votes in block with the assumption that their welfare will always be seriously considered.

The recent demolition of hindu temples by the authorities has greatly created a sense of mistrust on the government. The MIC or other indian parties are not taking care of the welfare of the indians instead they are only worried about themselves and their comprates.

We need to appreciate the organisers of Hindraf rally, even if it does not materialise this sunday, that they have set a eye-opener to the BN government that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and any further anti-indian actions will be dealt with very severely by the indian community.

SMSs and emails seems to be flying daily and these messages are forwarded to every known indian in the country and overseas. The email and sms are http://forumhub.mayyam.com/hub/viewlite.php?t=10698 .

It is also been learned that the British Government had also accepted liability that the Merdeka social contract had been breached by the Barisan Nasional government, which had to ensure the indians, who were brought by the British from India to help develop Malaya (now Malaysia), their welfare had to be protected and the agreed social contract honoured. This had created a 'mile stone' in Malaysian history and any development will indirectly tarnish the human rights aspects of Malaysia in the international world, if the BN government does not seriously look into and settle these outstanding grievances.

The BN government had always neglected the indian community since the community comprise less than 10% of the population, but it is internationally known that the minority rights are always considered seriously by any nation.
TOMORROW'S CABINET TO ENDORSE A 'ROYAL COMISSION OF INQUIRY' INTO THE LINGAM VIDEO SCANDAL

After numerous efforts and wasted time, the Barisan Nasional government has finally decided to establish a Royal Comiission to investigate the Lingam Video Scandal which allege the fixing of judges to higher position and where court cases are 'fixed'. It is expected that the official announcement will be made after tomorrow's weekly cabinet meeting.

The rakyat must surely be delighted by this event, although the BN government had wasted so much time and the people responsible had been hoodwincking the public with various 'story'.

The rakyat need to realise that the BN is current having fear that their popularity is sliding and hope with the set-up of this Commission, public confidence will be restored.

It seems the rakyat had won its first battle for the independence of the judiciary. It is hoped that every culprit, irrespective of their position be brought to justice. The penalty should be severe since they are all law enforcers.

We need to wait and see the outcome.

THE 'BROOM' MARCH WILL COMMENCE

We need to commendate Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo for introducing a broom award to instil a wake-up call to the poorly performing government department in his State.

With this introduction, the rakyat should also commence by carrying a broom to all the Barisan Nasional leaders residence to show their displeasure on the way the BN government has been running our country - ineffective, inefficient, uncaring and corrupt. To really shame these Yang Berhormats, the rakyat need to whack them on their heads since the rakyat is paying their salaries and allowances, so they are deemed to be the 'servants of the rakyat'.

This bold move by the rakyat will shame these so-called Yang Berhormats in the eyes of the world, and it will display that the peoples' power will always be supreme and will always need to be respected, addressed and upheld.

Even the police and judiciary need to receive the same treatment, since they are 'dogs of the BN leaders'.

It is hoped that with this new BN culture and tradition, BN leaders themselves will change for the better by caring for the rakyat or face the same treatment.

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS - LINGAM VIDEO SCANDAL

It is reported that the brother of Dato V K Lingam has lodged a Police Report confirming and supporting the alleged scandal, which could be read from http://rockybru2.blogspot.com/2007/11/hes-my-brother.html.

Hoping that the Royal Commission of Inquiry would be set-up immediately by ordinary respectable Malaysian individuals with no political connections.

Will our PM Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi honour his words?
BARISAN NASIONAL USING 'REVERSE TACTICS' ON THE FEELINGS OF THE PALACE & RAKYAT.

Since the successful peoples' protest on November 10, 2007, where more than 40,000 people had gathered without fear or favour to demand for certain reforms, as usual, the Barisan Nasional, being threatened, has begun to use 'reverse' tactics which they are very fond of using, to frighten certain quarters.

Since the protest, nowhere did the organisers, BERSIH quote that they have had the palace involved. The only thing that happen was that a memorandum was presented to the Agong at Istana Negara. Least of all, it was reported that the Agong personally accepted this memorandum although it was unusual since the Agong would usually be away to his home-state. Now, the Barisan Nasional government, with fear of a massive defeat in the coming polls, have initiated a scheme to create enmity against the Royal Palace and the BERSIH organisers and to show that the Barisan Nasional government is the only party that can deliver using rightful means. The rakyat can NO LONGER be hoodwinked by these gimmick tactics. Since they (BN) and the police had been shamed, they need to find a quick solution to show their superiority.

The Barisan Nasional government which has been branded as ineffective, uncaring, inefficient and corrupt, should change. They need to manage the country as what have been entrusted of by them to do or allow a clean and able Party to manage our country.

It is hoped that the Royal Palace would just discard this "BN creation' and look seriously on the allegations made in the memorandum.

The time for the rakyat to take a serious view at whom they need to vote during the coming polls.

ROYAL COMMISSION OF INQUIRY TO BE SET-UP ON THE LINGAM VIDEO SCANDAL

The Cabinet have given the green light so that a Royal Commission of inquiry be set-up to investigate into the controversial Lingam Video Scandal which saw how judges were actually elevated to high office.

It is expected that the rakyat be given the opportunity to select the members of this Royal Commission rather than the BN government selecting their 'yesman' supporters who will be bias in their investigations.

It should be noted that persons involved in this episode should be brought to justice and shamed.

KAYVEAS 'PLAYING WITH FIRE' WITH UMNO NOW

The People's Progressive Party so-called president, Datuk M. Kayveas recent criticism against Puteri UMNO chief Datuk Noraini Ahmad, is totally out of line. Its seems Kayveas cannot accept criticism that his PPP has a small membership which is dwindling day by day due to his ineffectiveness and further more he has never been a lawful member, then any member recruited by him can come and go out of PPP as they wish since they are also unlawful members, and furthermore they do not contravene the Societies Act that 'a citizen can only be in one political party'.

It is hoped that UMNO will demand that PPP be removed from the BN coalition. PPP cannot contribute effectively but wants to demand for seats. PPP should be appreciative of the BN for giving them the edge for this long.

Since many BN leaders have undergone his arrogant behaviour, it may be time the BN leader take a serious look and expel PPP from its fold.

Then, Kayveas and his PPP will be a nobody and fade away, with only its history in the Malaysian chapter.

This is how a 'man of chance' (Kayveas claims he came into PPP by chance) could perform in any given situation.

MALAYSIANS HAVE AWAKEN FROM AN ILLUSION

The BERSIH protest rally on November 10 2007, witness the awakening of Malaysians from an illusion that only the BARISAN NASIONAL can deliver every time. With more that 40,000 people participating without fear of police brutality and the on-going heavy rain that afternoon, these people had demonstrated that the true meaning of democracy. People from now on will stand up to this ineffective, inefficient and corrupt Barisan Nasional government. The climate of CHANGE has prevail and it is hoped that this will continue forever until the welfare of the people and the nation is managed according to the wishes of the people.

It was also revealed that there was a small rally at the Malaysian Students Department in London to give support to the BERSIH cause by the residents at United Kingdom on the same day.

The Barisan Nasional government had tried to use the police to frighten the public but even then the police and the BN leaders were tricked. The main motive of the rally was to present a memorandum to the Agung but it was earlier told that they would have a peaceful demonstration at Dataran Merdeka. Police had mobilised their entire police force at that area and were caught unaware of their actual plans. The crowd managed to present the memorandum to the Agung to seek his Highness assistance to resolve the matters which have been neglected by the government and authorities concerned for so long.

It is hope that the Barisan Nasional government will realise that ENOUGH is ENOUGH and concentrate on managing the country with effectiveness, efficiently and wipe our corrupt, cronyism and nepotism or be prepared to be defeated in the coming polls by the people.

It would not be easy for the present government to change their attitude that the Malaysians are all stupid and frighten by their action. But it is hoped that this first grand rally will open their eyes to reality.

Syabas to the organisers of the BERSIH rally and I hope that our multi-racial society will co-operate more effectively and collectively in future demands. The participation of the chinese and indians had not be encouraging as the malays, we have to admit. But it is hoped that in future these communities will participate in full force to show their discontentment.

The time of CHANGE has just begun and hope that this ray of light will continue until we can be proud of Malaysia where the welfare of every citizen and our nation is taken care.

DOES ZAINUDDIN MAIDIN KNOW WHAT HE IS SAYING?????

Just listen to the interview given to Al Jazeera by Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1_GQ-K7P_w

The reporter seems to be asking a question and most of the time our Zainuddin Maidin seems to be letting out his frustration. If the Information Minister is not capable of handling any interview, he should be immediately replaced. To undermine another countries reputation is least expected of by our elected leader and cabinet minister. Malaysia should respect other countries.

Time for Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to replace Zainuddin Maidin, since he does not know how to overcome his feelings and answer intelligently. This has been his second outburst after a confortation with Lim Kit Siang with regards to comments quoted in his blog.

The public should immediately request Zainuddin Maidin to apologise for his comments above, to the countries mentioned by him and gracefully step down.

The time has come for the Barisan Nasional government to take stock of the situation and make amends.

DON'T TREAT THE RAKYAT AS FOOLS FOREVER - November 10 BERSIH rally is just the beginning. It is not Malaysian culture but do not under-estimate the people's power.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!
BERSIH RALLY - NOVEMBER 10, 2007

At lasts, Malaysians have threatened the ruling government formed by the 14 coalition partners, BARISAN NASIONAL that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. The people want the government to have a clean administration in every field or face a drastic defeat in the coming polls schedule sometime next year. The country is now faced with mounting corruption, cronyism and nepotism and if the government is unable to eradicate them immediately, they are presumably going to have a tough general elections. The gathering of 40,000 people although despite repeated warning by the authorities, shows the people are FED UP with the way the country is managed by the BN government. The BERSIH tactic by saying that they will gather at Dataran Merdeka and later moving to the Istana Negara was least expected by the police and indirectly created a SHAME to the Police and the government.

Here are some footage of the incident reported:

The time for CHANGE has finally arrived in Malaysia.

Hope that the people will use the coming polls to deliver their say...............

IS KAYVEAS SINCERE IN RECONCILIATION WITH MIC

Datuk M Kayveas finally agrees that he has made a fool of himself by requesting to meet MIC President Datuk Seri S S SamyVellu for a reconcilation over his recent bickering on the MIC/PPP feud.

Its seems that Kayveas plot to get publicity and recognisation from the Barisan Nasional leadership and the general public has failed.

MIC leadership should continue to pursue to expel PPP from the Barisan Nasional fold or to reprimand Kayveas and his PPP from contesting any seat in the coming polls as a punishment for under-rating the 'big brother' of the Barisan Nasional. We need to applause the comments raised by Malacca Chief Minister Mohd Ali Rustam at the recent Malacca State PPP Convention.

If the Barisan Nasional leadership were to console and offer Kayveas a seat, it would encourage future similar bickering from other small BN component parties. If one does not subscribe to the agreed principles of the BN, it must leave the coalition.

Kayveas has been using these sort of tactics far too often and it seems that Kayveas is desperate to secure a seat in the coming polls to keep his position within the PPP even to the extend of creating animosity among the other Barisan Nasional component parties to fulfill his desperate desire and aspirations.

Time for the BN leadership to realise his motives and take stock.
HAPPY DEEPAVALI
TO ALL MY HINDU FRIENDS

WILL KAYVEAS STOP HIS BICKERING ON BN COMPONENT LEADERS?

The People's Progressive Party (PPP), a mosquito party within the Barisan Nasional is losing political cloud due to the dwindling membership day by day. Datuk M Kayveas or he is also known as KVS Maniam or Supra Maniam s/o Kolanda Velu who claims to be its president had been reported to have never been a member of the PPP and had conned his way to get the recognisation to be its leader from the Registrar of Societies Malaysia by using fradulent court documents to his advantage since he was the legal counsel for the legitimate members who had a legal tussle then (sometime in 1988 to 1995).

The reason for the dwindling membership is because Kayveas and his cronies are more interested in material wealth for themselves rather than to care for the members and to achieve this goal, Kayveas need to be Yang Berhormat. During the previous general election, the BN leadership had offerred him the Taiping Parliament Seat which belongs to Gerakan, which Gerakan is currently demanding back.

The recent bickering with the MIC is really uncalled for by Kayveas. Kayveas need to respect that MIC and its president, Datuk Seri S SamyVellu, who are the 'big brothers' in the BN. To make sensitive issues against the MIC should be reprimanded by the BN by not giving Kayveas or his party any seats in the coming polls. Kayveas need to always realise that ' he came into politics by chance' (as stated by Kayveas himself) and was never groomed for political life and that is why he is behaving like this. Kayveas need to seek publicity to show his presence and the best way to get his message accross the media is using this tactic.

We need to applause the recent comments by Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam at the recent Malacca State PPP Convention. The Chief Minister had expressed these statements since he is aware of how Kayveas had highjacked the PPP by dubious means.

It may be timely for the authorities concerned to investigate on the allegations made and punish Kayveas and his con group men for making a mockery of the administration and to uphold justice.

Kayveas will only STOP if he is reprimanded by the BN leadership and once he is deem a NOBODY in the political arena.
