K.Sarojini (31) started becoming sickly after the delivery of her second child when her small intestines was also cut as a result of the doctor’s negligence. Sarojini now suffers from muscle disorder and is unable to do heavy work.
She gets a token (we estimate RM200) per month to feed herself, her ageing mother and her two toddlers M.Thavin (3) and Dharwin (1). Though UMNO acknowledges the Urban Poverty Line Index household income at RM687 per month, (The Star 24/10/09 at page N6) RM3,000 per month as the low income households (The Star 29/1/10 at page N41).
UMNOs’ welfare department grants only a mere RM200 or so to this Indian family which may not even be enough to pay her house rentals.
Had Sarojini been a poor Malay, Orang Asli, Kadazan or Iban she would have a village or some ancestral land to go back to or fall back on as her social safety net.
Had Sarojini been a poor Malay, Orang asli, Kadazan or Iban her village community if not her relatives would take care of her.
Had Sarojini been a Malay muslim some Pusat Urus Zakat, Jakim, Tabung Haji, Perkim or some giant corporate like CIMB Foundation or so would have helped her out financially and on a permanent month to month basis.
Had Sarojini been a Chinese some Chinese Clan Association, business or corporate company would have bailed her out.
But her already poor relatives and the poor Indian community have their own monthly family expenses and are in no position to help Sarojini So Sarojini lives on the mercy of her neighbours for her daily rice and food.
It is a pity that Sarojini only at 31 years of age has to undergo this level of hardships, indignity and misery in prosperous Malay-sia. This is an moral indictment of the conscience of the majority Malay and Chinese communities who uphold these irresponsible governments!
The UMNO Federal and PKR Selangor State government could help give her a permanent job with any of the local councils or SEDCs which has free babysitting facilities.
But both UMNO and PKR would not do it. And neither would the Penang DAP or Kedah PAS state government help Sarojini out. Simply because Sarojini is Malaysian Indian, and the minorities can be ignored.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of the plight of hundreds of thousands of other Indian poor suffering and living in misery on a day to day basis.
This level of racism meted out on the Indian poor does not happen in any other part of the world except in UMNO’s One Malaysia, PKR, DAP and PAS’ ‘multi-racial’ ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ states!
