A striking short film defining one of the world’s most misunderstood subjects: human rights.

HRP/HINDRAF booth at Singamuha Kaliamman Temple Annual Festival (Maasi Magam)

HRP/HINDRAF booth at Singamuha Kaliamman Temple Annual Festival (Maasi Magam),  Singamuha Kaliamman Temple, Teluk Bahang Penang on 27 & 28 February 2010

 HRP/HINDRAF sets up the community booth to update the Indian community on the latest issues and to present the Malaysian Indian Political Empowernment Strategy.

 Our special guest was HINDRAF Legal Advisor / Pro-Term Secretary General of Human Rights Party Malaysia, Mr.P.Uthayakumar (Former ISA detainee).



55% UPSR failure rate in Tamil schools. 77.4% failure rate at Sungai Besi Tamil School. No special unit to address. But UMNOs’ Special Unit for rural (malay muslim) schools on track.

No special unit to address this issue. But UMNO’s Special Unit for rural (malay muslim) schools on track.

This Special Unit was announced by UMNO’s Deputy Education Minister (NST 22/2/10 at page 4). But UMNO has zero plans to address the 55% failure rate as mentioned by Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim (TN 6/1/10 at page 4).

At the SRJKT Sg Besi (near the army camp) out of 53 students who sat for the Standard Five Pejabat Pelajaran Daerah (PPD) exams only 12 out of 53 pupils (22.6%) passed all subjects. This failure rate is presumably based on students failing one to all seven (7) subjects.

Although the issue is grave the 82 Opposition PR MPs’ choose to sidestep this Tamil school critically high dropout rate as the Indians are not politically empowered to speak up for themselves and neither do they have the economic power. Thus they are seen as soft targets by both UMNO and also PKR, DAP and PAS and hence are abandoned. Raising Indian issues may not be rewarding for them.

To move on and the way forward is as per “Indian political empowerment strategy – the way forward”

UMNO excludes RM 10 Billion Amanah Saham 1 M’sia to Indians.

This RM 3.4 billion Amanah Saham 1 Malaysia in theory was open to all Malaysians with 244,117 investing since last year, 50% of these shares have been allocated to the Malay muslims. 89% of the 30% Chinese quota had been taken up (BH 25/2/2010 at page 4). The Malay muslims have the options to exclusively purchase ASN, ASB, ASM and ASD 2020.

But as for the 15% of the quota for the Indians it is not stated by PNBs’ Chief Executive Officer Tan Sri Hamed Kama Piah Che Othman as to how many percent was take up by the Indians. We estimate only a mere 1% of the Indians bought up this shares as they cannot afford or have the means to do so.

And neither did UMNO secure loans for Indians from Maybank or CIMB with 4% interest  to purchase these Amanah Saham, and obtain at least 7% to 12% dividends from the saham, as done for the malay muslims.

Remarks : UMNOs’ AG Racist will not be prosecute PM’s P.A.

This is despite 12 police reports being lodged against Datuk Nasir Safar, Prime Minister Najib Razak’s personal assistant (The Star 4/2/2010 at page N2). In a few days time this very serious matter would disappear in thin air and never to surface.

Just mark our word! But when our Secretary General P. Uthayakumar spoke the truth on the Kg. Medan, indiscriminate Hindu temple demolishments and other “ethnic cleansing” of the Indians in Malaysia, he was within two weeks prosecuted for sedition, imposed an RM 50,000 excessive bail and was thrown into jail again for three years after having served 514 days under the ISA.

But for UMNO a different rule applies.

PKR S’gor MB blocks HRP e-mails.


Our e-mails to this PKR Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, the Selangor Menteri Besar is being rejected with the remarks “rejected by recipient domain. As it stands this PKR Menteri Besar does not reply to our official letters and has refused to give us an appointment to meet him. This is also the case with the Chief Ministers of Penang and Kedah and the top leaders of PKR, DAP and PAS.

Instead he gets his Indian Exco Mandore to do the usual MIC style wayang kulit in the three Tamil press.

The writing on the wall is very clear. Like UMNO, the top leadership of PKR, DAP and PAS, their 82 MPs including their 11 Indian MPs are not interested in addressing even the critical Indian problems.

We have to bend for ourselves and fight for own battle against both PKR, DAP and PAS and also UMNO.

Kapitan Lim Guan Eng abandons poor Indian estates workers in Nibong Tebal.

Despite two years in power in Penang, this DAP Chief Minister has refused to attend yet another Indian settlement problem. And when the time is ripe this Kapitan Lim Guan Eng will demolish all these poor Indian man’s houses like what he did in Kg. Buah Pala and then get his DCM II Indian mandore and the other Indian ADUN and MP mandores to make false promises, for example of double storey houses worth RM 600,000.00 for Kg. Buah Pala etc.

But to date despite almost six months since the last traditional Indian village in Penang has been demolished there has been nothing for the displaced villagers. Neither is there anything in writing by the Penang State government. Let alone given the land titles to these 24 houses.


Last Indian village Sentul destroyed Kg Baru Malays get RM 4 Million each

Just a few days ago the UMNO Federal Territories Minister Raja Nong Chik announced up to RM4 million for all the Malay occupants of land in Kampong Baru. But zero millions was offered to the Indians poor in the last traditional Indian village in Sentul.

UMNO has taken no efforts to preserve if not to enhance and recognize these Indian Railways workers who were the backbone of the setting up and operations of the Malayan Railways from the British Colonial days. Even the key Ring that is posed from station to station is also written in Tamil in addition to English. Res Ipsa Loquiteour. (The facts speak for itself.)

To add insult to injury these poor Indians are being evicted and not even given a low cost flat by UMNO (Star Metro 22/2/10 at page M6).

But in the news report immediately below this article reads “(UMNO) DBKL takes pride in beautifying Petaling Street.
