Practise of racism in Malaysia is driven by the greed of the UMNOPutras. And it erodes the dignity of all Malaysians.

The  Malaysian government  since  1957 has institutionalised racism as a fine art against all human values. The practice of racism overtly and covertly in its daily administration in the governance of the  nation of  multicultural population is repugnant, vile, reflecting of evil at its worst form, and goes against the norms of any civilised nation.

The practice of racism  also goes against the teaching of Islam, in a country where the private affairs of religion and state governance are  not separated, as it should be. In this context the UMNO dominated Malaysian government  cannot and should not be accorded a place among the  civilised nations. It should be discarded to the bins of barbaric race of yesteryears.  Racism is promoted daily and is well entrenched  in every aspect of the Malay- race dominated civil service, judiciary, police, army and every aspects the civil institutions.

The practice of racism, considered a vile and degrading behaviour elsewhere in the world, is promoted and encouraged by the UMNO regime  with pride but  mocked by the rest of the world. The practise of racism in Malaysia is born out of greed and inequitable allocation of the national wealth to the Malays. This greed based practice erodes the dignity of the Malays in the international arena, while the poverty amongst the lower stratum of  the Indians and the other non-Malay communities glare in the face of opulent Malay race. 

One reads daily the denial of  life opportunities and basic needs to  the poorer section of the other races with a great deal of pain and distress. The same pain is not felt by the so called leaders of the non-Malay communities appointed  and anointed by connivance. These so called leaders have lost their mantle to advocate for the basic rights of these disadvantaged people. These so called leaders  are consummated by greed and self interest. They have no ethics or moral values in them. They too have lost sight of humanity in preference over the wealth given to them by corruption. These characters carry the title of Datoks and Tuns and Sris,  titles cloaked under  deception and falsity, in a society where social standing is based on vertical hierarchy instead of lateral social values.  

How long and how far can this dysfunctional arrangement can go on before  Malaysia collapses into a state of  entropy. The current UMNO leaders are blinded by greed, with total disrespect to the consequences of the short cuts they take to promote acute racism for self gratification. The cry of pain of a hungry child will pierce the karma of those greedy bodies who move around without a  soul and conscience in them.

The northern branch of the Human Rights Party (HRP) has lodged a police report in Penang against the country’s top leaders for violating the constitutional right of young Indian Malaysians to education.
muhyiddin yassinkhaled nordinLodged at the Patani Road police headquarters yesterday, the report named Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin (left) and Higher Education Minister Mohamed Khaled Nordin (right) as key violators.
This was the HRP’s third report against BN-led federal government policies, following those lodged recently in Kuala Lumpur and Kulim.
According to the party, more police reports will follow as part of its campaign to lobby for the students’ right to education.
The party cited Article 8(1) of the federal constitution, which provides that all persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law; as well as Article 8(2), that there shall be no discrimination against citizens on the grounds only of religion, race, descent, and place of birth.
In its report, the party also pointed to Article 12(1): “Without prejudice to the generality of Article 8, there shall be no discrimination against any citizen on the grounds only of religion, race, descent of place of birth” in the admission to any higher education institution that is government-funded.”
N Ganesan, HRP advisor June 4When contacted, central committee member N Ganesan said the report was against Umno’s “racist policies against bright Indian students who have scored excellent results in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia but were unable to obtain Public Service Department scholarships to further their studies in matriculation colleges and universities”.
“We want to put on record the dissatisfaction of the Indian community over these blatantly discriminatory racist policies of Umno,” he said.
“These policies have long-term implications for the intellectual development of the Indian community specifically and for the country at large. This level of racial discrimination does not exist in any other part of the world except here in Najib’s 1Malaysia.”

‘Access denied’

Ganesan claimed that about 2,237 Indian Malaysian students have scored up to 13As but were denied access to the 10,500 local and 1,500 overseas scholarships offered by the government, as well as to 40,000 matriculation and 847,485 public university seats.
NONEThey were also denied places in critical courses such as medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, engineering, aeronautical engineering, accountancy, law, and bio-technology, he said.
The community’s other grouses include the demolition of a temple in Setapak by Kuala Lumpur City Hall on June 24.
“Acts done with impunity are nothing short of a scheme to stunt the growth of the Indian community (to) ‘always keep these fellows grovelling for the basics, give them peanuts or give them nothing – they will go away’,” added Ganesan.
“But they will not go away, they will push continuously harder to eliminate the root cause of their problems.

Welfare home on the brink of destruction

KUALA LUMPUR: Nine years ago, 17-year-old B Praveendran stumbled upon an orphan boy scrounging for food at a dumpsite in Banting. He took him home and his parents agreed to care for him.Today, the boy is 22 and pursuing a medical degree in Russia.

Recounting how he "adopted" his first orphan and subsequently founded the Sinthamani welfare home, Praveendran said he now takes care of 45 orphans and unfortunate children from broken or poor homes at Rumah Panjang Jinjang Utara in Kepong.

However, the one-acre welfare home with three separate structures, including a small temple, is slated to be demolished.

On June 3, the City Hall served a notice for Praveendran to vacate the premise by June 29 or face enforcement action today (June 30).This morning, some 40 children dressed in their school uniforms skipped school in preparation to protest against the demolition.Praveendran, together with his staff and activists, were ready with protest signs but City Hall officers were nowhere to be seen.

"We are seeking help so that the authorities do not destroy this place because the kids are living comfortably here. Please help us," said Praveendran.

City Hall playing hide and seek

Human Rights Party (HRP) coordinator W Sambulingam urged the authorities to allow the orphanage to continue operating at the site.

"Without this house, where would these children go? They go back to the streets. If not for the noble work of Praveendran, many of these children would have become addicts, drug pushers or criminals," he said, asking the government to provide RM200,000 per annum in aid for the home.

"This home existed without a single sen from the government. So Mr Prime Minister, if one cannot help, the least one could do is not do damage. Yes it is erected on government land, so what?

“Will demolishing this place solve the problems for these children? No. They (the authorities) don’t bother about what happens to these children," he said.

Sambulingam also revealed that 10 of the children do not even have birth certificates.

The HRP coordinator alleged that City Hall was playing "hide and seek" by not coming today but may suddenly show up with their bulldozers when there are no protesters.

Praveendran, a dog breeder, works with 20 volunteers and funds the welfare home solely from his own pocket and from contributions.

Contacted later, a City Hall officer said the demolition exercise has been put on hold but did not give any reasons for this.

HRP: RM 1.4 Million Human Rights victory for death in police custody victim Anuar Bin Sarip

suzana url

This morning the Kuala Lumpur High Court delivered an unprecedented decision of RM 1.4 Million in the case of death in police custody of Anwar Bin Sarip in police custody in 1999. P. Uthayakumar submitted in court that this case involved the first of the series of public interest cases of death in police custody by HRP which at it’s height was at the rate of one person killed in police custody in every two weeks. (An estimated 90% of the Malaysian victims are ethnic minority image Malaysian Indians who disproportionately are only 8% of the total Malaysian population.

P. Uthayakumar submitted the brief facts that in this case the deceased Anuar bin Sarip was sleeping with his wife and children in his family home.

The police suddenly stormed into his house, kicked open the deceased room door, abruptly awoke arrested and procured a remand order for 14 days in a row. On the tenth day a policeman left a note on the door of the deceased home that the deceased had died and the family was welcome to collect his dead body.

P. Uthayakumar submitted that the learned High Court Judge Dato Kang Hwee Gee had on 20/10/2009 decided liability against the Inspector General of Police and the Government of Malaysia and fixed damages to be assessed by the Senior Assistant Registrar Puan Faerah Nurul Ainni binti Izany. I also accept the evidence of Dr. Michael Devaraj Jeyakumar that pleural effusion secondary to bronchopneumonia is not a terminal disease and had the police acted responsibly and had sent the deceased to hospital earlier he could have been treated and saved. (See soalan 2 and soalan 3 of his Witness Statement).

The evidence shows that the defendants were in breach of that duty. Having taken the deceased into their custody it was incumbent upon the police to ensure that the health and well – being of the deceased were taken care of. Whether or not he was being brought at all to the Pusat Kesihatan Rawang to be attended to by the hospital assistant was doubtful as the person who brought him there D/ Kopral 98010 Sulaiman bin Abu Bakar (DW7) could not remember which hospital assistant attended the deceased. In any case even if he had in fact brought to see a hospital assistant this would not have been enough to discharge that duty considering the seriousness of the deceased’s condition. It was reasonably foreseeable that a failure to properly and adequately attend to the deceased’s serious condition would result in serious injury to his health. His later complaint of stomach ache and loss of appetite after the first episode underscores the failure on the part of the police to discharge that duty of care.

The fact that the deceased had been suffering from tuberculosis before he was taken into custody would not exonerate the defendants from liability as they would have to “take their victim as they him under the egg – shell skull principle”. (See Azizi Amran v Hizzam Che Hassan [2006] 2 CKL 821 paragraphs 8 and 9).

suzana 1 I am therefore convinced that the police was negligent in having failed to take reasonable care of the deceased while in its custody and should therefore be liable in negligence for the death of the deceased. Accordingly I allow the plantiff’s claim against the 3rd and 4th defendants with costs

As agreed loss and damages are to be assessed by the Registrar.

On 26/04/2010 the senior Assistant Registrar Puan Faerah Nurul Ainni binti Izany decided a sum of RM 137, 200. 00 as the damages.

The Federal Council’s appeal to the High Court Judge on this award was dismissed and the Kuala Lumpur High Court Judicial Commissioner Yang Arif Lee Swee Seng allowed the Plaintiff’s appeal as follows:-

1) Dependency for Anwar bin Sarip’s two children aged 16 and 9 @ RM200, 000.00 totaling RM 400, 000.00

2) Aggravated Damages                                                                                                          RM 500, 000.00

3) Exemplary Damages                                                                                                            RM 500, 000.00

Total RM 1, 400, 000.00

4) Interest at the rate of 8% per annum from the date of cause of action (death) to date of realization.

The learned Kuala Lumpur High Court Judicial Commissioner further held that death in police custody is disturbing. Drug addicts should if at all be treated with greater care.

The court message to the police is that any more deaths in police custody is unacceptable as it has been one too many. Steps must be taken that basic human rights be respected by the police.

P. Uthayakumar represented the Plaintiff and the Defendants the Inspector General of Police and the government of Malaysia was represented by Federal Counsel Wan Roslan Wan Ismail.
