The problem among the Indian poor, attempting to live normal productive lives without MyKad, without birth certificate and with red identity card continues in spite of the statistics issued from time to time by government agencies like Special Implementation Task Force (SITF) or by outsourced BN partner NGOs like Development of Human Resources in Rural Areas (DHRRA). All of this points to the failure of current policy of the BN government in providing the basic right of citizenship to this most vulnerable segment of our society.

Hindraf chairman P. Waytha Moorthy believes that at some point in time during the hearing of his class action suit in the London High Court (to begin tomorrow), Najib Razak would have to be subpoenaed to testify.
Waytha is also quoted in an FMT report today ‘Hindraf suit in UK not to embarrass M’sia‘ as saying that the May 2013 MoU between Hindraf and BN is among the thousands of documents which his organization has compiled for their case.

“Un peyar enna?“, I asked the elderly woman in wheelchair whom I met in the Jalan Duta court complex.
I’m not sure if my syntax was in the correct required courteous form for a younger person to address an older one but anyway the phrase is Tamil for “What is your name?”
“Kalaiyani,” she replied in a friendly manner and we chatted a bit.
The lady passed away a few weeks after that meeting. Continue reading “When bad things happen to good people”

FACT: Umno has 88 Parliament seats and DAP 38.
PERCEPTION: “Minority government” Umno does not have the popular mandate whereas the loud and bossy DAP is carrying the righteous torch for Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité.
Considering that the predominant readership in my blog is presumably pro-establishment Malay, the responses here, all in all, has been rather muted (when it could have been far more hostile).
Compared to some of the “happy to see him go” responses elsewhere in the pro-Umno websites, I take your relative silence / restraint as something positive, i.e. no news is good news, because at least there is not much venting against him.

(31 May 2013) There is a dangerous trend developing in the public information domain that bodes ill for us all Malaysians.
We used to criticize the mainstream print media for its untruthful and biased reporting of events and occurrences around the country. Now it looks like that is coming full circle with the online media, social media all resorting to similar yet more vicious campaigns of untruths and distortions of truths. Continue reading “Main reason those people are very dangerous”

Historic opportunities arise when certain defining events converge for a while in history. The minority Indian Malaysians have such a historic opportunity on their hands right now. It behooves all Indian Malaysians to be able to perceive this window of opportunity, so the right decisions can be made and the historical circumstances utilized to the best advantage for all of future.
The Dacing (the Pakatan/Barisan Dacing) hangs in delicate balance one day before the elections. When it hangs in balance like this, even small additions to this side or that will determine the tilt of the Dacing. This is the historic opportunity that I speak of. The Indian minority, small as it is, can determine which way the Dacing will tilt.

I read a comment somewhere in blogosphere that Dapsters will link, with the name “Ibrahim Ali”, just about any Malay individual who is in the DAP crosshairs.
In other words, anything Malay that the Dapsters are against will be conveniently tarred with the Ibrahim Ali brush.
Well it appears that the phenomenon is not confined to Dapsters alone but found in Malaysiakini as well, and with an added twist now. Continue reading “The Ibrahim Ali brand name / Hindraf explains the MoU”
Raja Petra Kamarudin wrote yesterday in his column titled ‘The question of cowardice‘,
“The problem is: they [the critics] disparage me for refusing to return to Malaysia.”
“However, if I do return to Malaysia and nothing happens, they will say I have made a deal with Umno.”
“And if I return to Malaysia and I get arrested, they will say that it is merely wayang to stop people from saying I have made a deal with Umno.” Continue reading “Raja Petra on the possibility of returning home”

Malaysiakini columnist Mariam Mokhtar made an astute observation yesterday from the pro-Pakatan point of view.
She wrote in her column under the headline ‘Waytha’s betrayal‘:
“The marginalised Indians are euphoric about being kingmakers in GE13 but if Umno wins, it would not be difficult to imagine who the nation will blame and who will be the biggest losers.”
Mariam has read the Pakatan mood very knowledgeably. Continue reading “When Umno wins the GE, who will be blamed?!”

I think it is very welcomed where the PM can hear it direct from the very people who represent the downtrodden one unlike hearing it from the apple polishing Indian-based coalition partners like MIC, PPP, MMSP, AMIPF, etc. These other buggers have only been filling their own pockets without bring to light the genuine problems of the poorer segment of the Indians.

Hindraf chief P. Waytha Moorthy believes that politicians merely ride on the issues to gain political mileage.
“The poor Indians have seen 12 elections before this and many have voted in many elections believing in the promises of both divide. They are tired and have given up hope on politicians,” he said. Continue reading “But Hindraf, you have declared war on Umno before, bukan?”
I refer to recent media reports where Anwar has gone on record stating that Pakatan will review its recently released Manifesto Rakyat to include five additional pledges to the Indian electorate.
Anwar needs to be given a pat on his back for the courage to admit this large error of omission after so much argument on principle – principle of need based versus race based and principle of policies that transcend race. In this latest outcome those principles did not seem to matter. Continue reading “Pakatan’s principles? What principles?”

I think the problem is not pressure groups demanding their rights. PERKASA, HINDRAF, SUQUI are different entities but all are demanding their “rights” as guaranteed by the Constitution or their interpretation of it.
You still have not addressed the contradiction of having a “Malaysian view” and your fidelity to a specific racial group. In addition, it is difficult to see where you are coming from when you claim that minorities are demanding “unfair” and “unjust” concessions. Unfair and unjust in what context? [See below]
PERKASA is not strong because UMNO is weak. PERKASA is strong because UMNO allows it to be a pressure group and not UMNO youth. Continue reading “BN based on racial formula, Pakatan based on racial formula”

Yakni, berbanding PRU12, undi pengikut Hindraf tidak lagi mungkin dihadiahkan umpama cek kosong (blank cheque) kepada pembangkang.
Uthaya juga berkata belum ada seorang pemimpin Pakatan yang mengutuk Mat Rempit-Mat Rempit menyerang ceramah di Jalan Kebun kerana politikus Pakatan takut kehilangan undi Melayu.
