Happy Deepavali

To All Malaysians HAPPY DEEPAVALI. A celebration to truly celebrate even though tough economic times. With the prospect of a better year ahead, we should rejoice the end of the troubled 2009.
The Bagan Pinang by election loss for Pakatan Rakyat is a good thing. We need accountability and responsibility from Pakatan Rakyat. BN choose the right person for Bagan Pinang and they choose the wrong person. So we will see what comes out of this in the months to come. MCA is big big trouble now that they haven't got a clue what to do now. But i respect their party for making the right decisions. The both of them didn't qualify to lead the party anymore.
Who knows what other parties are going to form and lead a new coalition? oopss....

Malaysia a sinking ship. malaysiakini

The politic atmosphere in Malaysia has gone from interesting to down right stupid. Ever increasing mud-slinging and cock talks by politician diverts all the public concern issues. Last week i waited 45mins for a train at the KL Sentral KTM station to find the train arriving at train station in snail pace on tow by a KTMB engine train. It was not just embarrassing to see this but disappointing to know the pathetic state of our countries public transport system.

Some criticised Makkal Sakthi party as racially based party as a backwards thinking. But i don't see Malaysia coming out of the ropes of racial politics. Even Pakatan Rakyat does not carry that stand. Having PAS in their coalition defeats the pursuit of abolishing racial based politics. Malaysia will always be ruled by race politics unless they abolish race discrimination. There shouldn't be a race recognition in policies. There shouldn't be an issue of bumiputra or non bumiputra.
This is what that makes us slaves of racial politics. It's time to remove the shackles that deprive us of equal standards.

What happen's behind the screen? malaysiakini

Is Makkal Sakthi Parties endorsement well timed for the coming by-election? It is sad that an activist organisation being so easily fooled to the folds of UMNO. Najib's ploy is to garner the indian support back to BN by using the famous anti BN slogan "makkal sakthi" as their supporter.

PAS shouldn't stand in Bagan Pinang. Malaysiakini

Barisan Nasional's Bagan Pinang state assemblyperson Azman Mohd Noor, 55, passed away today from an apparent heart attack. His death will pave way for the ninth by-election since the March 2008 general election.
But in Bagan Pinang there is a 60% non malay voters there. I'm not sure why a PAS candidate stood at N31 for the pass two elections. But with all the on going Islamation issues growing out of hand in malaysia. I do not think a PAS candidate would garner enough support with all the on going issues at hand.
I'm very sure that Hindraf would definately field a candidate for this by-election.

What happens if Anwar goes back to jail? Malaysiakini

The biggest Malaysian news hogger for this year would have started this week but got postponed till next week. What do you think of Anwar's trial? A sham, a conspiracy or justice?

If this mole was sent by UMNO into Anwars camp to dig in to his personal life and claim sodomy later. The clever thing to do for whoever who sent him in there was to make sure he had enough evidence to bury Anwar before exposing Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

So, do you think they will be successful? We will know soon. But the worrying question here is not just Anwar's fate for coming years but this Nations fate? We all know that Pakatan Rakyat is hold together by Anwar's sticky glue. DAP and PAS is a partner that is definitely not what you call "Opposite attracts". From Ideology to representation they are completely opposite to each other. So PKR has gone all out to recruit as much politically influence people as they can grab. To be the alternative voice in the Pakatan Rakyat formula. Being the youngest and less experienced party in this Pakatan Rakyat Establishment. They needed more qualified and experience people to field for the next general election.

Will Pakatan Rakyat survive if Anwar goes back to prison? I don't think so. If Anwar goes back to Prison. He looses his MP seat. They will need a new opposition leader. His wife will need to stand again at Permatan Pauh. There will definitely be a few massive rallies but that's not going to change anything. We will definitely see Barisan Nasional loose more seat in the next GE. Their days are numbered. But the opposition wont be united. So an opposition state government will probably be still 3 or 4 but never a new federal government.

But there is a possibility that in his absences there might be aspiring new revolutionary leaders rising to unite the opposition or maybe create a single strong opposition. It's not practical for now but a possibility of a Pakatan Rakyat government wasn't realistic not too long ago also. Fingers crossed that the voice of the opposition never dies if this turn bad for Anwar. Who knows maybe Najib might just do what his father did to salvage their power by suppressing the opposition and suspending the Parliament. We can throw bricks made of words at him but a man in his position in Malaysia can't be touched. We could end up as a dictator ruling. Then we all can forget about a place called home.

Our Nations future, our children's future and our country's future is now in the hands of Najib. We will never know what lies ahead of us until the Parliament really runs this country.

What is the difference between Mindraf and Hindraf? Malaysiakini

Out of all the political parties present in Malaysia now. DAP stands more of de-racialised non-communitarian politics in Malaysia. PKR can be argued as one as well but the whole set up of it was more like justice for one man than justice for a nation. It has been trying to accommodate for all now. But it has more cracks and plastering to do before it is considered genuine.

Hindraf should be part of a political entity because their concerns are political related. How long are they to beg by the doors of parliament? The move to remove political members in Hindraf was definitely called for. Having political friendly politicians makes their movement more legitimate. Hindraf is and should always be only a watch dog for the Indian community and a Hindu movement for spearheading legal actions against wrong doing parties.

The members from Hindraf who want to embark into politics should approach DAP and PKR to create a balance representation or start a genuine multi racial party. With people who believe in Makkal Sakthi and have genuine grouses about the malaysian society. If Mindraf is started than all the principles of their struggle when started, would contradict now. Hindraf was against BN formulation. A party like MIC did not function well under BN regime. Which was controlled by UMNO.

To every struggle there must be a starting point. Hindraf should have started their political pursuit in the beginning. Right after the mammoth rally. It has lost a lot of it's momentum over the year. But on the other hand a lot was promised to Hindraf when Anwar, Kit Siang and all the others jumped into the election frontline in the name of Makkal Sakthi. But not much was seen after that. There are still 3 more guys in ISA and 1 exiled. If these men were masquerading as fighters for the Indians they would have given up or backed down by now. But their spirits are still burning brightly without fail. I respect these men. So Thanedra’s action to start a political party is in a way playing the political game. The government’s action to outlaw Hindraf is reasons for the political action by Hindraf members. I hope they dissolve the party and form a united racial party when the time comes for that.

I was also fighting and persuading my friends of my society to understand Hindraf. Many of them were too accustomed to the good life of Malaysia that they failed to see the balance 80 percent of Indians who live below the average income group. Indians have no savings. We have not much asset or advantage in this country. So even though I agree that injustice and lack of representation of many other communities are also present. But somebody has to do it. So if you aren’t then you shouldn’t stop those who are trying to protect theirs.

Indians should be in politics. It is a must. Good man with good virtues and vision should be leading this community. There must be proper representation of all races in a cabinet. No leader can see what is needed by individual communities if there isn’t someone to represent them.

The rule of law should exist for all.

With respect to Uthaya and his struggle.

My 500th day under ISA
P Uthayakumar | Apr 26, 09 7:55am
Today April 26, 2009, marks my 500th day under Umno’s captivity without being charged, tried or found guilty in a court of law. I suppose this is ‘justice’ for me, an Indian ethnic minority and human rights lawyer of 18 years.

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s continued unilateral decree is that I be made to serve a jail sentence of two years and indefinitely thereafter under his regime. There are prisoners here at Kemta Kamunting, Taiping, serving their eighth year of their ISA sentences.

p uthayakumar sedition trial 030209 01But I have no regrets. I know in my heart that every day of my imprisonment will liberate and open up a thousand new minds against Umno’s atrocities and injustices in their marginalisation, discrimination, suppression, oppression and the exclusion of Indians from the mainstream of national development in Malaysia.

Today, I have grown 500 days older. Today, I have lost 500 days of my precious freedom. Today, it is 500 days since I shaved my beard or combed my hair to protest my ISA detention. Today, it is 500 days since I have been made to wear the very same two pairs of dark blue baggy pants and white restaurant waiter-like prison uniform.

My left foot

On Jan 31, 2009, I had accidently injured the last toe of my left foot, which had gotten worse because of my long standing diabetic condition. From day one of my injury, I had repeatedly asked to be treated at the Gleneagles private hospital as I no longer have confidence in the independence of government-service doctors, which I believe had been compromised by the Home Ministry and its Special Branch police officers.

Under protest, I agreed to be treated at a government hospital on Feb 3, 2009. As I had anticipated, the doctor refused to admit me despite my swollen leg and blackening left foot condition. The doctor told me there were no hospital beds and neither did she want to refer me to an orthopedic surgeon or a consultant physician, as well as a cardiologist to treat my silent heart attack during my ISA detention.

No cast was put on my leg. No medication was prescribed. This doctor told me that my leg would heal on its own. My suspicion was confirmed when the doctor, who had written my medical notes in a police file, gave it back to the police officers accompanying me.

brickfields uthayakumar hindraf 280209 marching to stationBy the second week, my leg got even worse and despite repeated pleas, the prison authorities refused to take me even to a government hospital, which I agreed to go under protest. I had lodged four police reports but again zero action was taken. Even my statement was not recorded.

The worst case scenario ran across my mind. I may lose my left foot. For the first time, I realised that as a lawyer, I could not even save myself. There was nothing I could do, I was a prisoner.

But even then, I had thought to myself that should the worst happen, I would put on a prosthesis (artificial leg) and keep walking. I feel that at the end of the day, it was the prayers held at scores of Hindu temples nationwide by supporters of Makkal Sakthi that had actually saved my leg and ensure my well-being in prison.

Surviving on bread and biscuits

On March 22, 2009, I found pieces of beef in the chicken sambal served to me. Mohamad, a Pakistani national, and Abdul Sarjon, a Sri Lankan national, and fellow detainees who worked at the prison kitchen confirmed that chicken and beef were cooked in the same pot after which the chicken was scooped out and served.

uthayakumar interview 051207 pausedI immediately lodged a police report. But again nothing happened as usual. But had it been the other way round - the victimisation a Malay Muslim - a different set of rules would be applied by Umno.

But I suppose this is all part and parcel of PM Najib’s One Malaysia policy. One Malaysia, two systems. Since that day, I have refused to consume cooked food from the prison kitchen in protest against the violation of my religious rights in contravention of Article 11 of the Federal Constitution. As a Hindu, I do not consume beef. I am now surviving basically on bread and biscuits.

Throughout these 500 days, there was never a single day that I ever regretted starting and spearheading this struggle. I believed in justice, including for the minority ethnic Indians, in Malaysia.

In these 500 days, I have refused to meet any of the Special Branch officers who came to meet detainees once in every two to three months to “plead for my release”. I have done no wrong and I am not prepared to beg for my freedom. I had earlier also refused to meet Umno’s home minister, knowing fully well that my release from prison is in his hands, for the very same reason.

My biggest satisfaction and what keeps me going in prison is the true and sincere spirit of the struggle through Hindraf’s Makkal Sakthi.

brickfields uthayakumar hindraf 280209It moved me to see thousands of Hindraf supporters who had braved FRU’s tear gas and water cannons, who were roughed up and beaten by the police, arrested, handcuffed, thrown into jail, prosecuted in court and bravely standing up in the dock to face possible jail sentences, losing their jobs, and with their wife and children suffering.

All these sacrifices, just for a public cause to put to an end to Umno’s racism, religious extremism and exclusion of the Indians from the mainstream of national development. To all of you, I salute you and I am proud of you. Makkal Sakthi Valga.

I miss my freedom

I am suffering from this imprisonment daily. I miss my freedom. I miss my family, my wife and children.

But I am prepared for the worst, even if it means another 500 days or more of imprisonment. I will do this just for the cause of Hindraf. Umno can imprison me but they cannot imprison the forces of Hindraf’s Makkal Sakthi.

Makkal Sakthi was the tipping point in the March 8, 2008 general elections. It was the triggering factor which resulted in Umno/BN losing two-thirds majority in Parliament as well as political power in four west-coast states.

Makkal Sakthi once again showed its prowess at the Bukit Selambau and Bukit Gantang by-elections. I never, even in my wildest dream, thought I would see Makkal Sakthi forces to this extent in my lifetime.

gantang by election 040409 hindraf candle light vigil kamunting isa detainees09I am no Mahatma Gandhi or Nelson Mandela, but Umno has to understand and accept that it was the genuine grievances of the people - the pent-up pain and suffering, misery and heartache - that brought about the unprecedented 100,000-strong Hindraf rally on Nov 25, 2007.

Please be patient. Umno will not change, but we will change Umno in the 2012/2013 general elections. We will put an end to Umno’s bully tactics and its rule by fear. We have waited 52 long years.

Please be patient. In another three or four years, there would hopefully be a new beginning, a new political structure and a Malaysia with equality and equal opportunities, including for the Indians. A Malaysia where the Indians would be a part of the mainstream in national development.

Every day and every moment of my imprisonment, my thoughts and prayers are with Makkal Sakthi. I have plans for our further struggle. Please pray for my freedom, and for Umno’s end of its rule so that justice will finally prevail.

Umno may have punished me with this 500 days of imprisonment but you, the Makkal Sakthi, will in turn punished Umno/BN where it hurts them most - the ballot box.

God bless.

Najib playing with his cards well. Malaysiakini

Najib is playing his cards very well. With Mahathir coming back into the picture. He is providing a vision of Malaysia's Glory days under the Mahathir ruling. But what we fail to see is much has changed from then. We don't have the marketing edge that we use to have. We are to expensive for the cheap labour market and we are not advance enough for the high tech investment. Where do we fit? Nowhere. Many of the problem we face today was because of Mahathir's way of progress. We were in the eyes of the world once but Not always for the right reasons. We are in many ways the same as China. Accelerated growth without substance. We had huge budgets for building stuff but not for maintaining.
Najib made a master stroke by releasing 2 of the Hindraf 5. If he let go all of them then we would think he was scared of the Indian voters. But by releasing 2, he has 3 more to toy with the public. If we fail to support BN then there is a possibility for him to punish the other 3. Not too many and not too little. Just nice. He didn't let go of Vasantha because there was too much speculation of his involvement with BN and Najid surely couldn't let go of the main leader, Uthaya Kumar. He would have gone to on a public hunger strike to get the others out. And he wouldn't want Pakatan Rakyat to have another MP at the Parliement if there were having a crucial vote in the House. So surely Manoharan was not coming out. Najib would had this all planned out much earlier.
Najib might be bad at his work but he is a smart politician. Sadly if Pakatan Rakyat were to win all 3 by election the forces is not going to change so soon. We are stuck with Najib for now.

Arab Woman gives Muslims a Thrashing. Malaysiakini

Al-Jazeera TV. February 21, 2006. This lady has a price on her head. Not sure how is she now. But surely know how to give a good trashing. No offence to my Muslim brothers and sisters. But she is just expressing her own opinion. We all have the rights to hear and evaluate an argument from any perspective. But please do not be offended.

It is extremely surprising that the Arab financed TV station in Dubai would allow this to air. Be sure and watch this, it is so powerful I have no doubt she now has a very large price on her head. She is one impressive woman.Here is a powerful and amazing statement on Al Jazeera television. The woman is Wafa Sultan, an Arab-American psychologist from Los Angeles.

God save us all, We kept the wrong government in power! Malaysiakini

I’m furious. Is BN telling that if they catch a few fellas for corruption that means they have gotten rid of money politics in BN.? How do we even know if it’s not all a big conspiracy and they use this opportunity to get rid of a few tough competitions?
Vote buying? You think someone is going to take the money out from his own pocket to pay others so that he can stay in power? Just for argument sake we say they use their own money to buy voters. Then surely he will try to make back that money by dipping his hands into the honey jar. So does this person deserve to remain in an important position?

What is astonishing is Khairy J’s statement.

He said that there was an agenda to stop him from contesting for the Umno Youth chief post.

"I know there is an agenda but I don't know by whom and why they are doing this. I am maintaining my innocence". Said Khairy.

I surely as hell don’t understand what the meaning of maintaining my innocence is. So I’m innocent till you catch me red handed then I’ll confess?

The Parliament is a sanctuary for Democracy. The parliement is so hypocritical of who can be questioned during session. If you can’t be question in parliament then why are you an MP?
Everyone in that position is dutifully responsible to answer for their actions and involvement of anything illegal. And to punish one for questioning is outrages.

Not enough of this the government is charging people for seditious remarks about the royalty including Karpal. What is this all about? What did UMNO do last time? When I was back in England as a student there was debate on the need for Royalties. This is a country that has a Majestic history of Royalties in power. During that time many news channel went around interviewing people about their opinion about the remaining need of a royal family. Obviously the debate started because of the cost of maintaining the Royal Family. Our issue is not even close to that. The TV Station interviewed people from all walks of live, immigrant or not immigrant what they thought and they aired on TV. That is freedom of speech. What Malaysia has is a joke.

People are not even allowed to discuss, debate or even question the matters that govern this country. Is it their country or our country? This is seriously the wrong direction this country is heading. And the Captain of these campaigns is no other than our future PM. God saves us all.

"How did the saree get into the lock-up? Assuming that the deceased managed to bring the saree into the lock-up, what were the police doing? Aren't they supposed to monitor detainees? Secondly, what could have pushed the deceased to commit suicide only a few hours after being detained?

"Thirdly, why the delay in informing the family of his death?"

In October, Ravichandran Ramayah, 38, died a week after being arrested and detained by the Penang North East Police Station. Family members claimed that medical needs were not provided to Ravichandran even though it was clear that his condition was very poor when he appeared in the Magistrate's Court for remand proceedings.

The deceased then could only walk with the help of family members, causing the magistrate to order that he be brought to a hospital for medical attention. However, the police instead took the deceased to the Penang Prison, where he eventually died. State Police Chief Deputy Commissioner Othman Talib said that no wrongdoing had been committed on the part of the police.

He said that a post-mortem showed that Ravichandran died from natural causes and there were no signs of physical abuse or assault.

October 10 , 2003 Vikenes Vesvanathan, a 19 year-old sixth-form student, and two of his friends, Katiravan Tamilchelvam (25) and Puvaneswaran Subramanium (24), were shot dead by police in Nilai, Negri Sembilan on 10 October 2003. Police claimed that the men had been staking out a bank
in preparation for a robbery, and that when their car was followed by police they sped away, crashed, and on alighting refused to surrender and opened fire on the police.

The police stated they returned fire killing all three men, whom they claimed were linked to at least 20 cases of
armed robbery. Police reportedly cordoned off the area where they were shot before the shooting, and reported that guns and bullets were found in the car.
Vikenes' family disputed the police version of events insisting that their son, a high school student, had no criminal record and was not, as alleged, a "marksman and a weapons expert". According to a police report lodged by a friend of Vikenes who saw his body in the mortuary,
there were two gunshot wounds to Vikenes' chest, but his shirt (which the police refused to release) had no bullet holes in it. He also claimed that there were bruise marks on his face, legs and back. In addition, the brother of Puvaneswaran stated "there were about four or five
red bruises on the back of his [brother's] body which looked like cane marks. His lips were also swollen and his nose bleeding."
A post-mortem report found that there were two gunshot wounds to Vikenes' upper chest. In findings that increased his relatives' mistrust of the police version of events, the
report stated that the wounds showed bullets had exited the body, suggesting that the firing may have taken place at close range.

Legal Issue on Contract Law in Malaysia. Malaysiakini

Legal Issue on Contract Law in Malaysia - Good for us to know

Do you notice that most of the time, the receipt / invoice you received from the merchant carries this exclusion clause or similarly worded statement: "Goods sold are not returnable" or "No refund once sold".

Please remember that : " As long as your goods is purchased for home use and not for business ( i.e. to be resold), the above exclusion clause is VOID.

That means, as long as the good is defective, regardless of what is worded, you CAN get back all your money spent . You do not have to accept a repair on the good or an exchange. You CAN ask for a refund.. AND you are LEGALLY right and entitled to!

And most of the time the merchant will refuse to return you your money.

You can threaten the merchant with four words: "SEE YOU IN COURT!"

The court here refers to the Small Claims Tribunal Court . Any goods which is worth RM25,000 and below can apply to this Court.

However, you don't have to tell them what court! All you have to pay is RM10 admin fee and the loser (the merchant) will have to refund you the money PLUS the admin fee!

I have seen that most educated people are cowed by such unfair wordings (which includes a few of my friends).

Pls try not to let the merchant fleece you the next time you have defective goods.

You can file this On the 16th floor of Putra Place (The Mall opposite Putra World Trade Centre) . The form cost RM5.00. The Tribunal will settle within 2 months period.

I don't know how true is this or if this piece of information credible. But i received this in my mail today. So i decided to share it with everyone. I wouldn't be surprise with Najib's intention because there is a lot of speculation about his fathers role in May 13th 1969. After March 8th 2008, there were many racial issues stirred up. Some resulting to innocent people being blame and jailed for no reason. So maybe there is some truth to this. Malaysia Boleh!

1.On March 8th 2008, Malaysia's opposition parties had won unexpected victories in the states of Kedah, Penang, Perak, Selangor and PAS maintained Kelantan
2.The BN was in serious trouble and could not believe that the economic powerhouses of Penang and especially Selangor had fallen.
3.Zakaria Deros, the assemblyman who was largely faulted for Selangor's fall together with Khir Toyo was informed of an emergency UMNO meeting on the night of March 10th 2008 at Najib's house.
4.However on arrival, Zakaria was surprised to see that there was no one there except for him, Najib and his bodyguards. "Where are the rest?" Zakaria asked. "This is a confidential meeting between the both of us only" Najib replied
5.Najib, then Defence Minister, came straight to the point. Remember 13th May 1969, the incident that my father was involved in? I want you to start a similar incident in Klang. I will call in the army and impose emergency rule afterwards. If you agree, you will be rewarded amply; otherwise you will pay heavily for your corrupt deeds and for the fall of Selangor.
6.Zakaria in his loud and gruff voice not only made it clear that he will not be a party to a riot in Klang but also barked at Najib that he knows well that Rosmah pulled the trigger to kill Altantunya and Najib Oked the C4 of the body.
7.Zakaria further screamed at Najib that he will expose this to the public.
8.The enraged Najib instructed his bodyguards who set upon Zakaria and beat him up till he became unconscious eventually suffocating him by strangling and killing him.
9.The well oiled team covered up the entire incident as Zakaria having a heart attack at just after midnight March 11th 2008.
10.His body was quickly brought back to his mansion in Klang, and sent off for burial in Malacca by late morning March 11th 2008.
11.Corrupted to the core though Zakaria was, he saved the people of Klang from falling for Najib's evil calling although his sons did try to start an incident unsuccessfully in Telok Gong. Zakaria however paid a heavy price. His own death. If his body was excavated, apart from the strangulation, the injuries include multiple rib fractures, punctured lung and a possible a liver tear.
12.The depth of cruelty and evil that both Najib and Rosmah bear is unknown to many Malaysians. The country is really entering a very dangerous period of its history. UMNO's culture since Razak, has been that the end justifies the means. Malaysians will now have to decide how bloody this end is going to be.

Khairy Hitler in the making. Malaysiakini

The more we let this guy go on the more hatred he sow the hearts of the young Malays.
One day we will regret having kept quiet during all this time when this madman slowly gains control of the easily influenced Malay communities. His hidden intentions have failed to be seen by the common minds. With Pakatan Rakyat loosing their ground in Perak things are starting to get messy.
I have always condemned defection as a way to form a new government. But i don't think Anwar is all to blame for bringing this culture. When BN lost this 5 states they would have already set a strategy to get back this states in any way crooked then to wait for the next GE.
So it was just matter of time. I'm actually surprise it took them so long. When the initial case of the 2 PR MP's getting caught for corruption was the signs of BN at work laying down their ground work for this take over.
The next state they would hit is Kedah with already a state assembly person for Bukit Selambau Mr. V Arumugam quitting after being pressured by BN to crossover.
The blessing behind all this dirty work carried out by BN is that their true nature and culture is coming out. People get to see how corrupted and dirty their entire establishment is.
Malaysia should only have 2 major parties. An alliance can never work. Especially when it is based from different schools of thought. You can never strike a balance, especially when you have religious party involved. I truly hope the Opposition will one day stand only as a singular party with a common goal and policy. With an Alliance there will always be a worry of loosing power and compromise their values to stay in position with their partners in the Alliance.
