Noble House, Wild MPs!

Can we use b*****d" and "bloody b*****d" in parliament? Watch yourself on what had happened in the noble house. In every session of parliament there will be at least one unwanted incidents such as racial incitements, personal attacks, and so on. Member of Parliament insulting one and another in the Dewan Rakyat is standard incidents in Malaysia.

As the ultimate legislative body in Malaysia, Parliament is responsible for passing, amending and repealing acts of law. Well, most of the Member of Parliament in Malaysia not doing their responsibility. They ignored the mandate that given by Rakyat during the process of democracy. Nobody knows when these situations going to change, the MPs are gambling with our future.

Mr. Uthayakumar, Malaysian Indian Always With You....

I wish Mr. Uthaya happy 47th birthday. God bless him, we Malaysian Indian always pray for him. His contribution towards Indian community in Malaysia undeniable, the whole world knows that Malaysian Indian under marginalisation since HINDRAF mass rally on 25 November 2007. He is celebrating birthday in a heartbreaking condition, lets we all not forget his sacrifices for us.

Knowing that he would be arrested under ISA, thus he left two parting videos for his supporters. In the video Uthaya thanked HINDRAF supporters for their support and reminded them to be peaceful and not to resort to violence. He was arrested under Internal Security Act (ISA) in December 13, 2007, along with M. Manoharan, V. S. Ganapathy Rao, K. Kengadhadran and T. Vasantha Kumar.

Mr. Uthaya was brought up in Kelantan, where 99 percent of the population is Malay. He also wore a pin of the Malaysian flag on his blazer during his student times, despite the fact that his friends poked fun at him. Another interesting story about him, he revealed that he had a Malay girlfriend for five years, but because he had to convert to Islam to marry her, it forced him to go his separate way.

When Mr. Utaya started his legal firm, he placed a Malaysian flag on his working desk. That show how patriotic he was. He also stated that he had no problems with the Malay people as much as he had problems with the UMNO led government. He took off the flag that he put on nhis working desk after the Kampung Medan incident because;

“I believe that as much as I want to be Malaysian, the Malay majority Muslim do not want me as a Malaysian, they do not recognize me as a Malaysian, and they do not accept me as a Malaysian”

We are clear on why Mr.Uthayakumar has lead Malaysian Indian to fight for rights with the name of HINDRAF, the main reason should be when the government not respecting and continuously neglecting the equal rights and opportunity of the minority. May God protect he and all ISA detainees from evil and harm! Struggles continue......

Anyone Can Be Malaysian Prime Minister?

After read this post, some of my Malays friends definitely have a lot to comment on this issue. I’m very sure they will ask me that how I could show disrespectful by questioning the social contract and Malay’s special rights. But yesterday, our Prime Minister said ‘Anyone can be PM’. So I hope now the message is very clear to Malaysian on what Pak Lah has stated.

The world is moving towards more liberal and I hoped Malaysia too has the same approach to face the reality and the challenges out there. Before this, I only able to ask that ‘can I dream to be a Prime Minister of Malaysia?’, because if I asked it seriously, they may have sent me to Kamunting. Anyway, happy to hear that PM have released such statement yesterday, I heard such a first-class statement very first time by a Malay in Malaysia, pleased once knowing that our PM has such a liberal mentality.

This question I have raised such question many times since I was small. First I asked my father when I was in primary school; my father replied that during independence time that’s possible, but now he doesn’t think so. The same question I have asked to my history teacher when I was in secondary schools, she replied you must be a Malay and Muslim if you want to be a Prime Minister. So, I never give up myself, I expected that anyone will give me the positive answer that will satisfy me. Sadly, no one did it!

Although not very sure whether it’s possible for Malaysian Indian to become Prime Minister, but what in my mind was I thought everyone has equal rights in Malaysia. I lost that believe since a lot of racial sentiments, remarks, riots that indicates impossible for Malaysian Indian. The generation today has spoilt with racist mind, which is the biggest challenge to achieve unity. Thus, it’s important that every Malaysian regardless of their races and religion given equal opportunity in every sector. Start educates the youngs to respect the equality for all Malaysian. We will not able to achieve unity if discrimination happens to any group of people.

Please don’t kill our dream. I think there are still hopes for us to get the equal rights despite the position of Prime Minister.

Its Government Responsibility to Build and Upgrade Tamil Schools

Only by receiving 50 million from government, MIC thanked and praised that it’s a fair government that cares for all. Human Resources Minister Dr S Subramaniam release this statement after Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak approved the MIC’s request for the sum. I’m sure Malaysian Indian not satisfied with what they have received yesterday. Read here.

For me the sum of money is just a one step in upgrading the Tamil schools, there are a lot to be done. Tamil schools must be built in the town areas which most of the Malaysian Indian are migrating from estates nowaday. Why not government carried out new plan to restore the Tamil schools that had been destroyed so far? Despite upgrading the existing schools, the government must start constructing new schools. The major towns in Malaysia for example, Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur still required sufficient schools.

We are not owning huge numbers of schools compare to the national schools or Chinese schools, but with only 523 schools around, our schools still struggling with lots of problems. Instead of having access to a large field, a school hall, science laboratories and a computer laboratory, the pupils of Tamil schools have to manage with the bare necessities. Some of the Tamil schools have no field, no laboratory or library, staff room for teachers or even proper toilets, no canteen, no proper roofing, and sometimes, no classrooms even. The amenities provided saddening us terribly.

Some concerned Samaritan voiced out the problems faced Tamil schools currently, constantly forcing government to address this issue immediately. Although there are initiatives by government, but it’s not enough to satisfy Malaysian Indian who has been marginalised for more than 50 years.

Let Chin Peng Return To Malaysia!

In 2000, Chin Peng applied to be permitted back into Malaysia, and a complex legal issue has arisen out of this. Hearings on whether to permit his return to Malaysia were scheduled for May 25, 2005 but the High Court postponed the hearing to July 25, when his application to be allowed to return to Malaysia was rejected.

His return is opposed by victims of attacks committed by the Communist Party of Malaya, those who served in the armed forces during the Emergency, and members of the public. There has been a resurgence of accounts of the alleged atrocities the Communist Party of Malaya committed in newspapers by those who are against his return to Malaysia (such as the Ex-Servicemen's Association of Malaysia). Chin Peng has lived in exile in southern Thailand and has also given lectures in the National University of Singapore. The current Malaysian Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi, suggested the Government might reconsider its position in the future. He said he would wait for the outcome of the Court case before making a decision.


In June 2008, Chin Peng again lost his bid to return to Malaysia when the Court of Appeal upheld an earlier ruling that compel him to show identification papers to prove his citizenship. Chin Peng maintained that his birth certificate was seized by the police during a raid in 1948. His counsel, Raja Aziz Addruse, had submitted before the Court of Appeal that it was wrong for the Malaysia government to compel him to produce the documents because he was entitled to enter and live in Malaysia by virtue of the agreement.

When Chin Peng's parents are already obviously dead, old as they must have been, this is the time for the other relatives of Chin Peng, mainly, his own brothers and sisters who are still alive, and also, his own children, to assist him now, and probably have some DNA testings done so as to ascertain the reality of the birth and existence of such a person named Tan Boon Hua, also, known as Chin Peng, to have been born in Sitiawan, Perak - some 84 years ago.

It is not impossible for the records of Chin Peng's birth to have been lost by the authorities concerned - in this relevant time. However, since the keeping of such records is not within the control of Chin Peng, he ought not to be blamed when the authorities cannot trace their records of his birth which might have been kept some 84 years ago. What about the records of his parents, and also, those of their deaths (certificates)? If it had been recorded that his parents had been citizens, then "BY OPERATION OF LAW", Chin Peng ought to be a citizen as well.

I think he is not a threat to government, and I'm really sure that his age not allow him to re-emerge as a fighter. It is indeed a great honor to our country that Chin Peng, after all his sojourns, have decided to come back home to Malaysia to breathe his last at 84. It hurts him a lot when denied to return to his homeland. Just think of our feelings if we are in his situation. Definitely, it will be good for us to fulfill his last request.

Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak, The Seventh President of UMNO

Najib will turn into the seventh president of Umno after Datuk Onn Jaafar, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Abdul Razak Hussein, Tun Hussein Onn, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. The success may lead him to be the next Prime Minister of Malaysia, according to transition plan that agreed by PM.

To win the post unopposed, a nominee required 134 nominations. Datuk Seri Najib Razak voted as the Umno presidency uncontested yesterday after he clinched 140th nomination. This automatically denied Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah to challenge Najib Razak in the UMNO presidential contest.

Most of the UMNO members and Malaysian have very high expectations on Najib’s leadership but there are a lot of scandals haunting him, from Altantuya murder case to the political conspiracies against Anwar Ibrahim. Will he able to stop the conspiracies against him to be a good leader in future? The former Pahang Chief Minister also released statement on Malaysia as an Islamic state. In keeping in line with UMNO's strategy of politicizing racial and religious issues, Najib declared on August 2007 that Malaysia has never been secular because being secular by Western definition means separation of the Islamic principles of in the way we govern the country.

Najib had a close aide, Abdul Razak Baginda, who was involved in a high-profile murder case of a Mongolian woman, Altantuya Shaaribuu. In a statutory declaration in his sedition trial in June 2008, Raja Petra accused Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor (his wife) of being one of three individuals who was present at the crime scene when Altantuya Shaariibuu was murdered on Oct 19, 2006, adding Najib's wife, Rosmah Mansor, and Acting Colonel Aziz Buyong and his wife, Norhayati, Rosmah's aide-de-camp, were present at the scene of the murder; Raja further wrote Aziz Buyong was the individual who placed C4 plastic explosive on Altantuya's body and blew it up.

Najib also claimed to be involved in conspiracies against Anwar. Najib denied any personal involvement in the alleged political conspiracy against former deputy premier Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, including a police report alleging Anwar committed sodomy against his former aide. He said the picture of his aide Khairil Anas Yusof with the alleged sodomy victim Saiful Bukhari Azlan at his office had been taken three months ago when the latter, in his capacity as a student leader, came to his office to seek a scholarship.

Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak will be announced as the next UMNO President when the UMNO General Assembly meets in March 2009. Only time will tell us the answers on how he going to lead the party and government. Well, I take this opportunity to congratulate him for the win.

Samy Vellu, You Better Leave Now!

After being the MIC President and sole Malaysian Indian Minister for close to three decades, he had fully absorbed the anger and frustration of the Malaysian Indians at the MIC failure to check the marginalization of the Malaysian Indians by accepting full personal responsibility. But he is still going to contest for MIC top post in the next year’s party election. He will be contesting for the presidential post for the 11th time.

He said in a press statement that if he wins the party presidential elections then, it will be his last term and he will retire from active politics in 2012. Samy joined the party in 1959 and became the Youth Chief in 1971 before becoming the vice-president in 1975. He took up the acting party president in 1979 after the death of Tan Sri V Manickavasagam. He then got elected to the top post in 1981, which he held on until today.

The very fact that Samy Vellu lost his seat in Sungai Siput was evidence that people rejected him totally; he should just accept the fact that he has overstayed in the politics. The message was further amplified when he never got a "Tun" from Yang Dipertuan Agong even Gerakan’s advisor got it. It’s another obvious signal that Samy Vellu’s highly praised contribution to the society was not recognised.

Samy vellu also involved in Maika scandal which 66,000 Maika shareholder’s RM120 million Telekom shares hijacked, where nine of ten million Telekom shares allocated to Maika were diverted to three private companies. So he better escape quietly before Malaysian Indian seriously start investigating and reveal all the scandals that he did.

Hope he leaves the post and let younger members to lead MIC professionally and efficiently. He will do it if he realy cares about Malaysian Indian!
