Samy Vellu pecat Bendahari Agung MIC serta merta


Pemimpin veteran MIC, Tan Sri M. Mahalingam, antara orang kuat Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu sekian lama, telah dilucutkan daripada jawatan Bendahari Agung parti itu berkuat kuasa serta-merta.
Malah difahamkan, Mahalingam, Bendahari Agung sejak tiga penggal lalu, telah diminta oleh Samy Vellu supaya melepaskan semua jawatan dalam MIC termasuk dalam sayap pelaburan dan pendidikan parti itu.
Mahalingam, 73, ketika dihubungi mStar Online sebentar tadi mengesahkan ada menerima surat daripada Samy Vellu semalam mengenai keputusan melucutkan jawatan itu.
"Saya ada terima surat daripada Datuk Seri (Samy Vellu) semalam. Tiada sebab dinyatakan. Lagipun melantik Setiausaha Agung, Bendahari Agung adalah kuasa Presiden," kata Pengerusi MIED Capital Sdn. Bhd., syarikat yang menguruskan pelaburan pendidikan MIC.
mStar Online difahamkan ia berkait rapat dengan perkembangan terbaru dalam parti itu termasuk dipercayai ekoran pendirian beberapa pemimpin veteran menjelang pemilihan parti tahun depan, yang bakal menyaksikan Samy Vellu mempertahankan kerusinya.
Laporan semalam menyebut bakal calon jawatan Presiden, Datuk M. Muthupalaniappan kemungkinan berhadapan dengan tindakan disiplin parti dan ia telah dibincangkan dalam mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Kerja Pusat (CWC) Khamis lalu.
Selain Bendahari Agung, Mahalingam juga merupakan salah seorang pengarah badan amanah sayap pendidikan MIC, Institut Perubatan, Sains dan Teknologi Asia (AIMST) yang baru ditubuhkan.
Ketika ditanya sama ada menyedari sebab atas tindakan itu, beliau yang juga bekas Setiausaha Agung MIC itu berkata, "itu anda kena tanya pada Presiden. Ia hak Presiden."
Mahalingam merupakan bekas Ahli Dewan Undangan, Ahli Parlimen dan Timbalan Menteri sebelum dilantik sebagai Bendahari Agung.
Selaku Bendahari Agung beliau dilantik mengurus dan menyelia sayap pelaburan dan pendidikan itu.
Malah, dengan lantikan sebagai sebagai Bendahari Agung Mahalingam menganggotai CWC MIC - badan membuat keputusan dasar dan keputusan parti.
Bulan lalu Mahalingam dilantik menganggotai jawatankuasa pemilihan presiden. Pemilihan presiden akan diadakan suku pertama tahun depan.
Dalam pada itu, Samy Vellu tidak dapat dihubungi untuk mendapatkan ulasan mengenai sebab pemecatan Mahalingam.source by mstar.com.my

PAS nafi tuntut haramkan jual arak di Selangor

PAS Selangor menafikan pihaknya ada mengesyorkan kerajaan negeri agar mengharamkan sama sekali penjualan arak di negeri itu.
Pesuruhahjaya PAS negeri, Datuk Dr. Hassan Ali berkata, dakwaan bahawa parti itu mahu mengharamkan penjualan arak adalah tidak benar.
Sebaliknya jelas beliau, apa yang diusahakan adalah penguatkuasaan undang-undang dan peraturan sedia ada, bukannya memperkenalkan sesuatu yang baru.
"Apa yang saya cadangkan dalam mesyuarat Exco adalah untuk melihat penjualan minuman ringan yang mempunyai unsur alkohol sebanyak 5.8 peratus iaitu yang dijual di kedai serbaneka termasuk 7-Eleven dan stesen-stesen minyak.
"Kita minta atas peruntukan yang ada di bawah undang-undang, pihak-pihak tertentu melihat perkara ini dan mengambil tindakan positif supaya ia tidak dijual di kedai-kedai terbabit," kata beliau di pejabatnya di sini, hari ini.
Hassan yang juga Exco negeri berkata, penjualan minuman ringan seumpama itu di kedai-kedai tersebut menarik golongan remaja pelbagai kaum untuk membelinya yang mana jika diminum pada lewat malam akan membahayakan keselamatan mereka ketika memandu kenderaan.
Berhubung desas-desus bahawa kertas cadangan itu telah ditolak ketika dibentang dalam mesyuarat Exco, Hassan berkata, perkara itu tidak benar kerana ia sebenarnya ditangguh kerana pihaknya mahu mendapatkan pandangan pengusaha-pengusaha kedai serbaneka terlebih dahulu.
"Kita nak dapatkan pandangan daripada pekedai, hendak tahu kenapa dia jual. Nak tahu kenapa di kawasan orang Melayu yang 90 peratusnya orang Islam, kenapa ia turut dijual.
"Kita nak tahu apa masalah yang dihadapi mereka kalau tidak dapat menjualnya di tempat mereka," katanya.
Beliau berkata, pihaknya mahu mengambil kira pandangan semua pengusaha kedai serbaneka tersebut supaya suara mereka dapat didengar dan secara tidak langsung terlibat dalam proses membuat keputusan.
"Kita nak dengar, kalau kawasan itu majoritinya kaum Cina, mungkin lain sebabnya. Mungkin ada maklum balas berbeza mengikut penduduk," katanya.
Hassan berkata, hasrat penuh untuk melarang penjualan minuman itu bukan sesuatu yang negatif kerana ia merupakan satu langkah pencegahan bagi menyegarkan kehidupan rakyat.
Katanya, keputusan lanjut berhubung cadangan itu hanya akan dibuat selepas menerima maklum balas, yang dijangkakan diadakan tahun depan, dari seluruh negeri.
Ditanya mengenai dakwaan bahawa cadangan itu telah ditolak wakil DAP, Hassan berkata, hal itu mungkin timbul disebabkan mereka tidak mendapat gambaran dan fakta yang jelas berhubung perkara tersebut.
"Oleh sebab atas ketidakjelasan itu, responnya agak terkeluar sedikit," katanya yang tidak pasti bagaimana maklumat mengenai mesyuarat Exco yang sepatutnya sulit bocor.
Kata Hassan, cadangan untuk melarang penjualan minuman seumpama itu datang daripada beliau sebagai Exco negeri yang menjaga hal ehwal agama Islam dan Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (JAIS) dan tidak ada kena-mengena dengan PAS.
Hassan berkata, beliau kesal dengan kenyataan yang terbit khasnya di akhbar-akhbar berbahasa Cina mengenai perkara ini yang memetik sumber-sumber tertentu.
"Ia menggambarkan seolah-olah PAS tidak peka dengan kehadiran masyarakat berbilang kaum dan agama di negeri ini sedangkan PAS tidak begitu," katanya.

‘PM must have people’s trust’

PLZ REFER RED COLOUR HIGHLIGHT

PUTRAJAYA: It does not matter if the Prime Minister is Malay or non-Malay, as long as he enjoys the trust of all Malaysians.

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said there was no specification in the country that the Prime Minister should only come from among the Malays.

“But when you talk about having a non-Malay as a PM, you are being racist yourself because you shouldn’t ask the question if one is Malay or non-Malay.

“If he is acceptable to all Malaysians, yes, he can become PM. The specification is that he must be the leader of the majority party.

“Don’t ask if he is Malay, Chinese or Indian,” he told reporters after delivering a keynote address on “Bangsa Malaysia” at the Perdana Leadership Foundation here yesterday.

However, Dr Mahathir said the assumption that race-based politics or political parties were no longer relevant after the last general election when Barisan Nasional lost five states was wrong,

“Race-based politics is still relevant. We are still not united if we can’t even have a vision school for all children from various races to attend together. As long as there is such sentiment, we won’t be able to have Bangsa Malaysia.

“A multi-racial party won’t work because every multi-racial party is dominated by one race, like Gerakan and DAP. Even the PAP in Singapore is not multi-racial,” he said, adding that unless opposition parties like PAS or Keadilan were willing to have a non-Malay as their leader, such talk was merely propaganda.

Earlier in his address, Dr Mahathir said there would come a time when all races in the country would be able to come together as one “Bangsa Malaysia”.

“But I don’t think it will happen tomorrow and it will take a long time. We can keep our ethnic and cultural identities but we should feel more Malaysian than Malay or Chinese.

“The concept of Bangsa Malaysia cannot be forced on us and it cannot be done by a political party. This is because it’s about people, not politics,” he said.

MIC veteran to take on Samy

MIC veteran leader M Muthupalaniappan today announced that he would contest for the party presidency next March.

MCPX"I am receiving overwhelming support and good words from MIC and the Indian community regarding this," he told Malaysiakini.

Yesterday, the former MIC vice-president had revealed his intention of taking on his former ally S Samy Vellu who has held the top post for the past three decades.

According to Muthupalaniappan, he decided to contest after taking into consideration the interest of the party and the socio-economic condition of the Indian community in this country.

"I shall and will bring change to MIC and to the community," he pledged.

Stressing on the importance of consolidating ranks and bringing the community together, the 68-year-old Seremban-based lawyer said: "Unity is the key to success."

Muthupalaniappan also vowed to re-admit expelled MIC leaders and members as well as to reinstate all the closed branches.

This is the meaning of a re-branding exercise, he said, adding that he would be able to bring the different camps together.

Muthupalaniappan was first elected to the MIC central working committee in 1979. The same year, he was appointed Negeri Sembilan MIC chief and party Youth head.

He was made senator in 1980 and two years later, won the Si Rusa state assembly seat and was appointed to the Negeri Sembilan state executive council.

He contested the party vice-presidency in 1987 and 1991 but lost both bids.

Muthupalaniappan eventually landed a veep seat in 1997 but failed to retain the post at the party's 2000 and 2006 elections.

MIC defers elections to September

The MIC has postponed the elections for its top posts, except that of president, to September next year, according to party sources.

The decision to move the party polls from June to September was taken at a meeting of the MIC central working committee (CWC), the party’s highest decision-making body, earlier this month.

However, the election for the post of president will go on as scheduled in late February next year, sources said.

Long-serving president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, who took over the leadership of the party in 1979 and has retained the post for 10 consecutive terms, is the only candidate so far to announce his intention to contest the top post.

Although the last party elections were held in June 2006, the MIC constitution allows for the CWC to defer the election of top office bearers for a period of 18 months.

The nearly 1,500 divisional delegates would, at the polls now set for September next year, pick a deputy president, three vice-presidents and 23 CWC members. — Bernama

Big trouble in Little India: MIC vs Pakatan

IPOH: The city’s “Little India” is shaping out to be the scene of a battle for two political parties fighting for the right to hold their own grand Deepavali celebration.

One group is led by Perak executive councillor A. Sivanesan from Pakatan Rakyat, who is crossing swords with an equally determined Perak MIC chairman Datuk G. Rajoo over the matter.

Sivanesan, who is also state Health, Environment and Human Resource Committee chairman, said the state government had as of Monday rejected Rajoo’s application to hold the celebration at Little India.

Sivanesan said this was because Pakatan planned to have its own festival there with the feedback and participation of local hawkers, businessmen and organisations.

“In the past, Ipoh Barat MIC has never involved the public when the party organises the celebration. We’ve received complaints from the traders of Little India,” he claimed.

“This time however, the community will themselves decide with Pakatan how the celebration should be done,” he told reporters at the State Secretariat here on Monday.

Sivanesan also accused the MIC of having previous Deepavali celebrations to profit from the festival, such as through the sale of trading lots.

“But we (Pakatan) are not doing it to make money. As a veteran politician, Rajoo should understand that the final decision is in the hands of the state executive council,” he said.

“The council officers are mere civil servants who should take instruction from the state and perform accordingly,” he added.

A defiant Rajoo said Ipoh Barat MIC would carry on preparations for the Deepavali celebration, which it had been doing for the past 16 years.

Rajoo said the party had already received approval in May from the Ipoh City Council to have the week-long celebration in Little India.

“We paid RM2,600 (for the security deposit) and we were issued an official receipt. We’ve even received payment for 83 stalls from traders.

“Now all of a sudden, Sivanesan wants to have the celebration in the same place which is very unfair. We are not doing this illegally,” he said.

Rajoo argued that the council was an independent body and that Sivanesan should not have meddled in a lawfully approved event.

He also denied that the MIC never involved the public or held such events to make profit, adding that the party even subsidised the celebration so that the Indian traders and community could benefit.

“We are not money-minded. We are a non-profit body. We are running the celebration for the people,” he retorted.

Molotov cocktails thrown into Teresa's parents' house

Source by: The starKUALA LUMPUR: Two Molotov cocktails were thrown into the family home of Seputeh MP Teresa Kok in Taman Rainbow, Jalan Ipoh near here at 2.55am Saturday. No one was hurt in the incident.

A warning letter containing threatening words and vulgarities was also attached to one of the bottle’s which was left outside the house.

Teresa’s parents and her siblings were in the house at the time.

The incident was witnessed by Teresa’s brother, Sow Kuen, 41, who was using the computer in the living room. He said he saw a man on a motorbike throw one of the bottles towards the house.

Teresa’s father, Kim Tong, 74, said that he was woken up by Sow Kuen and immediately alerted the police who arrived about 20 minutes later.

He said he was surprised as the family does not have any enemies.

“We don’t have any enemies. I’m not sure if this could have something to do with Teresa,” he said at a press conference in their house on Saturday afternoon.

He said he was happy with the police investigation and the officers who were very helpful.

Teresa told the media that her family members are shaken and now fear for their lives.

“I view this act as most despicable and criminal designed to instill fear and anxiety in me and to prevent me from performing my duties as an elected representative.

“I also attribute this despicable act to certain media and blogs that have deliberately demonised and portrayed me as chauvinistic, anti-Malay and anti-Islam,” she said.

Teresa urged the authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter and bring the culprits to justice as soon as possible.

Also present at the press conference were fellow MPs Lim Kit Siang, Lim Lip Eng, Tian Chua and lawyer Sankara Nair.

Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Zakaria Pagan said Kim Tong officially lodged a report at the Sentul police headquarters at 4.40am.

He said police seized the bottles and nails sprawled around the house compound. “According to Sow Kuen, the suspect was small sized and was wearing a helmet,” he said, adding that the police would increase their patrols in the area to avoid such incidents in future.

Temple torn down without state's knowledge

Source by Malaysiakini

The Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) ordered the demolition of the 19-year old Sri Maha Kaliamman temple without the knowledge or directive of the Selangor state government, said executive councillor Dr Xavier Jayakumar.

Jayakumar told Malaysiakini the MPAJ did not even inform the state government of its intention to tear down the temple. And it is not a temple, it is a shrine which it is located on a forest reserve,” he said.


He said the temple was also not registered with the Selangor state council.

“We have a format prepared for temples in Selangor to register with the state but this temple was not on the list of registered temples.

Jayakumar is the PKR assemblyperson for Seri Andalas who heads the state committee on non-Muslim matters alongside Pakatan Rakyat colleagues Teresa Kok and Ronnie Liu from the DAP.

Normaly Municipal Council control by state government how can the
Municipal Council did not inform state government before demolish the tample? On this case shown that Ampang Jaya Municipal Council can do any thing with out knowledge of state govrnment.Ayoooo!! Some more he said it is not a temple but see photo up there.

Where is Anwar Ibrahim and PR indian MP's(demolition temple)?

Bro Thanenthiran, please ask Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim lead Pakatan Rakyat to kneel and beg for forgiveness too... because you sounds so perfect and fair.. so let us see your upcoming reaction for the Sri Maha Kaliamman Hindu Temple ...






Photo Source: MIC Youth
MalaysiaKini: MIC president S Samy Vellu today condemned the action by a local council in Selangor to demolish a Hindu temple in Ampang early this month.

MCPXIn a statement, he said this went against the opposition's promise during the last general election not to demolish any temples.

He said the Selangor state government, controlled by the opposition alliance Pakatan Rakyat, should have ordered the local not to demolish the temple.

"It is very careless of the local council to demolish the temple without first relocating the temple," he added.

Samy Vellu was commenting on a newspaper report today that the demolition of the Sri Maha Kaliamman temple in Kampung Tasik, Jalan Baru in Ampang took place on Sept 9 this year.

The report stated that after being informed of the demolition of the temple yesterday, Selangor MIC Youth chief M.Yogeswaran immediately lodged a report at the Ampang police station.

State gov't must explain

Samy Vellu said the local council should have consulted or sought permission from the temple management and secure an alternative land to relocate the temple.

"The demolition of the temple in Padang Jawa (Selangor) just before the 2008 general election in March 8 had angered many Hindus, and this was one of the reasons the Indian voters voted against the Barisan Nasional.

"But today, you see the same situation happening in a state government that is controlled by the opposition," he said.

The MIC president said Selangor local councilors and executive council (exco) members should concentrate on matters that were important, “rather then seeking cheap publicity by exposing what they claim as irregularities in the previous state government.”

Samy Vellu wanted the Selangor state government to explain to the people, especially the Hindus as to how they allowed the local council to demolish the temple.

"A full explanation must be given immediately and bring the culprits to justice," he added.

Work Together form indian community stronger.

Well, I would tell that...lets word together and form a stronger Indian community,
MIC+ Makkal Sakthi = Rock Solid Indian Community.
MCA and DAP are working on it and as a result, they manage to get Teresa Kok out, why cant we, all that we need is , to be unite. Stop finger pointing, lets shake hand and walk together. For 1.8 million people, do we need opposition party, lets work together and be strong as 1.8 million people. If 50,000 Hindraf People can bring a national tsunami,imagine what we can do by having 1.8 million.Ok

Samy: PM to consider appeal to free Hindraf 5

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will consider the appeal by MIC to release the five Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leaders detained under the Internal Security Act, MIC president S Samy Vellu said today.

The prime minister promised to discuss the matter with Home Minister (Syed Hamid Albar) and come to a decision," he said in a statement after holding a 30-minute discussion with Abdullah at his office in Putrajaya earlier today.

Samy Vellu who was accompanied by Human Resources Minister and MIC secretary-general, Dr S Subramaniam, said the meeting with the prime minister was to seek the immediate release of the Hindraf leaders.

He said Abdullah told him that he will "study the situation and recommend appropriate action."

"We have full faith and trust in the prime minister, and we believe that he will do something (positive) on this matter," he added.

The MIC president said he explained to the prime minister why Hindraf leaders namely R Kengadharan, 41, M Manoharan, 47, V. Ganabatirau, 35, P Uthayakumar, 47, and K Vasantha Kumar, 35, should be released unconditionally.

He said his first argument was that they had been detained for almost nine months now.

'Reduce the tension'

"Some of them also need medical attention although we have been told that proper care is being given to them," he said.

He said their families have also suffered enough and that they should be allowed to return home to look after their families.

"It's about time that they are released as they pose no danger to the security of the country," he said.

Samy Vellu said by releasing them, it would "reduce the tension" within the Indian Malaysian community.

"I am also being heavily pressured by MIC leaders and members to secure their release.

"Today, I have spoken to the prime minister and I can assure the MIC members that something good will prevail," he said.

Samy Vellu also said he would raise the matter again at the next Barisan Nasional supreme council meeting.

"We will seek the backing of all the BN leaders to secure their release," he added.

The five Hindraf leaders were detained under ISA on Dec 13, after they had organised a mammoth rally which drew some 30,000 people to the streets in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 25.

MIC: Free Hindraf five

The MIC has reiterated its call for the Government to free five Hindraf leaders from Internal Security Act (ISA) detention.

Party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said that he would raise the matter with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi again, despite having done so many times.

“It is about time they were released as they pose no danger to the security of the country,” he said in a statement.

Samy Vellu also said the Government should not detain the leaders any longer as this would only prolong the Indian community’s ill-feelings towards the Government.

BN Youth leaders to seek release of Hindraf five

Barisan Nasional youth leaders plan to meet Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar over the call for the release of the five leaders of the Hindu Rights Action Front.

People’s Progressive Party Youth chief T. Murugiah said the Youth leaders from Umno, Gerakan, MIC and MCA had already agreed in principle to join the group which he would lead.

MIC says its MPs not interested in joining Pakatan

MIC information chief Datuk M. Saravanan has denied a media report that MPs from the party would be joining Pakatan Rakyat.

“Switching camps has never crossed the minds of any of our MPs. We will not cross over to the Opposition. We are staying put and will stay put with the Barisan Nasional. “I have spoken to the other two MPs and they have denied that the thought had even crossed their minds,” he said.

Besides Saravanan, the Tapah MP who is the Deputy Federal Territories Minister, the MIC’s other two MPs are Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam (Segamat) and Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department S.K. Devamany (Cameron Highlands).

Saravanan urged Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to stop changing deadlines in his bid to purportedly form the new Federal Government.

Labis MP Chua Tee Yong of the MCA has also quashed rumours of him defecting to Parti Keadilan Rakyat, saying those behind the rumours were aiming to create confusion and doubt among the people.

“I will not hesitate to take legal action or other appropriate action against anyone spreading such rumours,” he said, adding that he would remain a Barisan elected representative

Who SAID MIC NOTHING DO FOR OUR TAMIL SCHOOLS!!




Tamil education in Malaysia started when a Tamil primary school was established in the state of Pulau Pinang in 1816. Later, the estate management and the British government opened more Tamil primary schools when the rubber estates grew up in numbers by the end of the nineteenth century. Thus, by 1905 there were 13 government and Christian Mission Tamil schools in Malaya.

In the beginning, most of the schools did not last long due to lack of support and commitment from the estate management and there was no continuous effort from the Indian or Tamil community itself to sustain these schools.

The number of Tamil schools in Malaya had been increasing since thousands from India especially from the Southern part of India came to Malaya as labourers to work in the rubber, tea, coffee and sugar plantations. In order to attract more labourers and make them stay longer, the labour ordinance 1912 ensured that the estates management had to set up Tamil schools if there were more than 10 school going children in the estates.

However many estates owners refused to build Tamil schools for estate children and it caused the children to study in dilapidated buildings and former smoke houses. Furthermore, the government in those days had not allocated fund to build Tamil schools.

Between 1930 and 1937, there were some developments in Tamil education when the Indian government was concerned about the mistreatment of Indian labourers in Malaya. As a result, the Malayan Government set up a special committee to provide financial assistance to Tamil schools, appointed inspectors for Tamil schools and also started teachers' training. The number of Tamil schools had also increased tremendously. By 1938, there were 13 government, 511 estate and 23 mission Tamil primary schools in Malaya.

Before independence, the Tamil schools¡¯ curriculum did not have teaching of Malay and English languages. Emphasis was given only to reading, writing and arithmetic skills in the lower primary level and writing composition and geography was taught in the higher primary level.

After World War II, the government started to give serious attention to vernacular education by enforcing Education Law 1946. This Law emphasised on free mother tongue education and increased the grant provision to Tamil schools. This move paved the way to the increase of students in Tamil schools. Number of students increased gradually from 29,800 in 1946 to 38,700 in 1949.

Barnes Report 1951 with reference to the Malay education proposed the National Education Policy. It questioned the existence of Tamil and Chinese schools. As a reaction to this report, the Indian community set up a committee to protest the Barnes Report, which ignored mother tongue education.


In 1951, Indian Education Committee reviewed Tamil school education and proposed teaching of English in standard Four and Malay language in standard Five.

The children, on leaving the Tamil primary school, were absorbed into the working milieu of the estate. Parents themselves, mostly illiterate, did not see the value or purpose of seeking out a secondary education in Tamil. Apparently, most of them in the estates were able to lead comfortable lives compared to their counterparts left behind in India.

Status of Tamil Schools after independence

Razak Committee that was set up in 1956 brought about some changes in Vernacular education. This committee ensured Tamil school education and Tamil schools were classified as ¡°National Type of School¡±. More financial assistance was provided and remove classes were introduced for Tamil school children who intended to further their study at secondary schools in English. National based curriculum was proposed for all primary and secondary schools to instil unity and integration among various races in the country.

In 1960 Rahman Talib Committee proposed teaching of Malay language in standard One and English in standard Three in Tamil and Chinese schools. Since then more training opportunities were provided to Tamil schoolteachers and more Tamil schools were equipped with basic amenities.

There were 720 Tamil primary schools in 1963. The number decreased to 526 in 2000 when majority of Indians migrated from estate to urban areas due to conversion of rubber plantations to oil palm plantations and development of the estates as industrial and housing areas. There are still 526 Tamil primary schools in 2004.

Since 1970, Tamil primary schools have been witnessing visible improvement in the performance of the students, teachers' quality and fiscal conditions. More than 400 schools out of 526 schools have been provided with good buildings and basic amenities. More than 80% teachers in Tamil primary schools are trained teachers. The students also have been recording high passes in the public examination (UPSR). For example the passing percentage among Tamil schools students in 2001 was 40.1%. It rose to 57.6% in 2003. In 2001, 165 Tamil school students had scored 7As in the UPSR examination. It rose to 356 students in 2003.

Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) and social organizations have been playing very important role in uplifting the standard of Tamil Primary schools in Malaysia. The Government funds were obtained by MIC to upgrade the fiscal conditions of Tamil schools. Some issues faced by Tamil schools also were brought to the government's attention and additional programs have been carried out to improve the performance of the students. In brief, the MIC has been the guardian of Tamil schools in Malaysia.

In 2002 Tamil schools have accepted the government's decision to teach Mathematics and science in English as one of the ways to acquire more knowledge and increase the competency of the students in English. Now Tamil schools have become more attractive and more middle class parents and professionals have started to send their children to Tamil schools.

As at 31 January 2004, there are 95,242 students in the 526 Tamil primary schools in Malaysia. It has risen from 87,710 students in 2002. It is expected that, the enrolment in Tamil school would exceed 100,000 in 2005 due to the improved performance among Tamil school students in the previous years and awareness among Indian parents who have started to rediscover their own mother tongue and cultural values is mounting high.

Thank You MIC

Disturbing remarks(Ahmad Ismail)

I wonder how much more dangerously disturbing remarks we have to endure coming out from this Ahmad Ismail mouth. Sometimes being too passionate of own race also is not the cleverest thing to do especially when we are living in a country where we embrace multiracial cultures and practices,and multi religious beliefs. No man is an Island. Even Penang itself doesn’t consist of a single race, majority are Chinese dwellers and there are Malays and Indians too.
True UMNO is a party of Malay race, a party that is build to defend Malay rights from British Malayan Union. But that doesn’t give a license to any UMNO members to hurt the feelings of non-Malays.
I strongly urge Prime Minister to take stern actions on both.

Ahmad's supporters tear up Tsu Koon photo




Umno president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi took time off from breaking fast with Wisma Putra staff to call a press conference to comment on the ruckus during Ahmad's press conference in Penang earlier in the day.

Looking visibly upset, Abdullah lashed out at Ahmad for blaming other parties for the outcome of the March 8 polls.

"I am very unhappy and angry with what had happened.

"That is something we cannot accept and it is not for him to call on another component party to leave BN. It is not a matter for him to say.

"I have been told about it (the ruckus) and Najib and I will see both parties tomorrow.

"We will get him (Ahmad) to explain why it has happened the way it did. After that, we will decide on the appropriate action to be taken against him."

Abdullah said a swift decision on the matter would be made after the meeting with Ahmad today.

Asked about Penang MCA's call for him to take a stand on the issue of the Bukit Bendera Umno division chief's racist remarks, Abdullah said: "Yes I will make a stand on the issue, I certainly will."

At his press conference in Penang, Ahmad asked Barisan Nasional to throw Gerakan out of the coalition. His supporters also tore a poster of Gerakan acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon.

Ahmad's supporters also jeered at a woman journalist for asking a question.

Things almost got out of control but Ahmad intervened to calm down his supporters. He also apologised for the incident.

However, Ahmad did not stop his supporters when they tore up a photograph of Koh, amid shouts of condemnation against the former Penang chief minister.

Ahmad is being investigated under the Sedition Act 1948 for allegedly saying that "Malaysians of Chinese origin are merely squatting in this country and hence not entitled to equality".

He allegedly said this at a BN ceramah during the Permatang Pauh by-election last month.

Najib had apologised over Ahmad's statement and stated that his views did not represent the party's.

However, Ahmad refused to apologise and blamed a Chinese daily for reporting his statement out of context.

MIC still playing big brother role to Indians

KUALA LUMPUR: MIC's role as the big brother for the Indian community has not been minimised by the emergence of the Hindraf movement.

People seeking help to apply for identity cards or birth certificates, get business and taxi licences, or to solve financial or family problems still crowd the MIC headquarters.

MIC Youth chief T. Mohan said while some Indians might approach Hindraf over temple issues or to protest about some issues, there was no drop in the number of people calling at the MIC for help.

He was asked to comment on a recent report by an online portal that Hindraf had been inundated with appeals for assistance from the Indian community.

"I would say that there has been a significant increase in those seeking our help.

"Previously, as MIC Youth's Social Welfare Development bureau head, I used to receive many people at my office in Puchong on Wednesdays but the number has increased now."

Mohan said a service centre had been set up at the movement's new office. A full-time officer was on hand six days a week to attend to public complaints and two others to liaise with the government to solve problems, he added.

He said MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu and Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam were also constantly receiving people seeking help.

Meanwhile, MIC's Yayasan Social Strategic (YSS) family development unit head K.A. Gunah said they saw about 80 people weekly during their open days on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Source NST
Gunah said after the poor showing by the MIC at the March 8 elections, YSS officers thought that people would stop coming to them for help.

"But this did not happen as more people started seeking our help."

Perak Hindraf co-ordinator A. Vathemurthy claimed that Hindraf had captured the imagination of the majority of Malaysian Indians.

He said Hindraf leaders were kept busy taking up cases of Indians in line with the group's struggle to safeguard the constitutional rights of Indians in the country.

"We're constantly highlighting community issues related to land, schools, scholarships, financial assistance and poverty. As we've no funds, we bring the issues to the media in order to solve the problems."

Anwar keluar - kembali ke Parlimen dengan penuh kontroversi

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim yang meninggalkan Parlimen dalam keadaan kontroversi satu dekad yang lalu kembali dewan perwakilan dan perundangan yang sama dengan diselubungi kontroversi politik dan seks.

Kali terakhir beliau mengambil bahagian dalam sidang Dewan Rakyat, dari barisan kerajaan ialah beberapa minggu sebelum dipecat sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan serta sebagai Timbalan Presiden Umno dalam tempoh tiga hari pertama bulan September 1998.

Beliau dipecat oleh Perdana Menteri ketika itu, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad atas alasan tidak layak berada dalam kerajaan dan parti disebabkan beberapa isu menyentuh soal peribadi dan penjawat jawatan politik.

Kemudian Anwar dihadapkan di mahkamah berhubung tuduhan salah guna kuasa dan hubungan seks di luar tabii.

Ia sekali gus menghalangnya daripada bertanding dalam pilihan raya umum berikut dan larangan lima tahun telah meletakkan beliau di luar aktiviti politik secara aktif.

Pada 1999 beliau tidak bertanding dalam pilihan raya umum, sebaliknya kerusi Parlimen Permatang Pauh dimenangi isterinya, Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail selaku Presiden Parti Keadilan Rakyat (dulu Keadilan).

Pagi ini - kira-kira pukul 10.30 pagi Anwar yang membawa moto Harapan Baru Untuk Malaysia juga kembali ke Parlimen dengan memikul isu-isu kontroversi.

Beliau sekali lagi berhadapan dengan kes meliwat - yang kedua selepas 10 tahun. Kes tersebut kali ini melibatkan bekas pembantu peribadinya, Mohd. Saiful Bukhari Azlan, 23.

Kes tersebut akan disebut semula di mahkamah pada 10 September ini - enam hari sebelum sasaran beliau untuk membentuk kerajaan baru persekutuan - satu lagi kontroversi dengan ada yang mendakwa beliau mahu memasuki Putrajaya melalui jalan belakang.

Sepanjang kempen pilihan raya kecil Permatang Pauh, Anwar berhadapan dengan label sebagai pengkhianat bangsa Melayu dan ejen Amerika, Yahudi dan China (Cina).

Bekas Ahli Parlimen Permatang Pauh dari 1982 hingga 1999 itu pernah dilabel sebagai telah memutuskan untuk menjual Malaysia kepada Dana Kewangan Antarabangsa (IMF) ketika kegawatan ekonomi 1997/98.

Di sebalik pelbagai kontroversi pengundi Permatang Pauh memilih beliau semula untuk mewakili mereka dan kembali ke Parlimen.

Semalam Dr. Mahathir sangsi yang Anwar akan menjadi Perdana Menteri keenam walaupun memenangi pilihan raya kecil Permatang Pauh.

Beliau yakin Anwar tidak akan berjaya mendapatkan sekurang-kurangnya 30 anggota Dewan Rakyat Barisan Nasional (BN) untuk berpaling tadah menyertai pembangkang untuk membentuk kerajaan dengan majoriti mudah.

Anwar akan mengangkat sumpah sebagai Ahli Parlimen selepas menewaskan calon BN, Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah dan Presiden Angkatan Keadilan Insan Malaysia, Hanafi Mamat dengan majoriti 15,671 undi.

Beliau dipercayai muncul sebagai wakil rakyat pertama mengangkat sumpat dalam waktu singkat - tidak kurang 48 jam setelah memenangi kerusi Parlimen.

Ada yang menganggap sesi upacara angkat sumpah ini pun sebagai satu kontroversi. Ini kerana mereka berpendapat bahawa beliau meletakkan tekanan untuk memasuki dan menduduki tempat Ketua Pembangkang dengan secepat yang mungkin.

Bagaimanapun pejabat Yang Dipetua Dewan Rakyat menafikan persekitaran sedemikian.

Laporan Bernama memetik Yang Dipertua Dewan Rakyat Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia berkata, beliau berharap Anwar, Penasihat PKR akan mengamalkan sikap kesopanan yang tinggi semasa menghadiri persidangan Dewan Rakyat.

Pagi semalam Pandikar Amin mengesahkan telah menerima surat rasmi daripada Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) mengenai keputusan pilihan raya kecil Parlimen Permatang Pauh dan telah berhubung dengan Anwar untuk menetapkan upacara mengangkat sumpah selepas doa memulakan persidangan pagi ini.



Hanafi Mamat (AKIM): 92 undi
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (PKR) : 31,195 undi
Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah (BN): 15,524 undi

Jumlah mengundi: 47,258
Keluar mengundi: 81 peratus
Undi rosak: 447 undi
Majoriti: 15,671 undi

Penyandang: Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Ismail (PKR)
Undi 8 Mac 2008: 30,348
Majoriti: 13,398 undi

PKR 5 Division Resign....

Five division heads and 10 youth leaders of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) from the northern states walked out en masse from the party Sunday.

They cited their dissatisfaction of the leadership of PKR advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as their reason for quitting the party.

Former Kedah PKR secretary Zamil Ibrahim, who spoke on their behalf, said the party had deviated from its original struggle since Anwar was freed from prison.

"Anwar has made PKR become like a business entity where he is the chief executive officer and runs it as he likes," he told reporters when announcing his quitting the party at a hotel here.

He added that the other leaders who joined him in quitting PKR had remained in their hotel rooms because certain people had threatened to harm them.

They were among some 200 PKR members who chose to quit the party because they no longer had any faith in it, Zamil said, adding that Anwar's unwillingness to swear the Islamic way that he did not sodomise a former male aide of his also contributed to their decision to leave PKR.

Former PKR Youth head Ezam Mohd Nor, who was also present, said their leaving was a good sign that the Barisan Nasional (BN) would win the Permatang Pauh by-election on Tuesday.

The by-election involves a three-way fight between Anwar, the BN's Arif Shah Omar Shah and Hanafi Mamat of Angkatan Keadilan Islam (Akim

Indian youths in crime: MIC wants pow-wow with IGP

MIC has requested for a meeting with Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan to discuss the sharp rise in the number of Indian youths getting involved in crime over the past few months.

Its president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the Indian community was alarmed at the recent spate of violent crimes involving its youths, with such incidents being reported in the media almost daily.

"This is a worrying trend and the MIC, its youth wing and the Social Strategic Foundation (YSS) have decided to meet the police to find a solution.

"We're inviting Indian youths from all quarters to also come forward with their own proposals on how to solve this pressing problem," he said on Saturday.

Samy Vellu said Indian secondary school students should be looked at first to ensure they were not being influenced by "undesirable elements."

He said that anti-crime programmes aimed at secondary schools a few years ago had recorded some success, but the programmes were scaled down due to financial constraints.

He said "gangsterism" and other crimes had resurfaced in secondary schools, citing a case where students belonging to a gang had a celebration in a school in Klang.

Police disrupted the celebration and detained three gang members.

Samy campaigning for BN? Great news, says DAP

The DAP has cheekily welcomed the announcement by MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu that he would campaign for Barisan Nasional in the Permatang Pauh by-election.

“His presence is good news for us. We hope he will stay longer as it will be even better for Pakatan Rakyat to get votes from Indians,” said Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy.

Dr Ramasamy, the party‘s central executive committee member, said many Indians were irked with Samy Vellu over several issues including his comments on the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf).

Recently, Samy Vellu said he planned to meet the 3,300 Indian voters in Permatang Pauh to deal with their grievances.

The Indian community makes up 5.7% of the 58,449 voters in the constituency.

TAKE SEVERE ACTION AGAINS RACIST TEACHER (DATO SERI S.SAMY VELLU)

Malaysiakini reported that Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) President Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu has urged the Education Ministry to take severe action against a 35 years old Malay history teacher in Banting who uttered seditious and derogatory words against her Indian students recently and viewed the party and the Indian community would not accept the teacher to be let off the hook with "a light sentence". Datuk Seri Samy was referring to the ministry's decision to transfer the 35-year-old history teacher to another school, located closer to her home, and to attend counseling.


Datuk Seri Samy quoted that "it looks as if anyone who calls the Indian community with all sorts of unwanted words will not be punished, saying that he regarded the move to transfer her to a smart school as "a form of appreciation".


Datuk Seri Samy informed that he would write to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to express the party's displeasure over the ministry's lack of stern action against the teacher and viewed that "this sort of teacher will give the government of Barisan Nasional a bad name and may reduce the support of the Indian community."


Would the Barisan Nasional government consider severe punishment?


UPDATE
The 35 year's old Malay lady teacher's name is Pn. Rusnita Abu Hassan and it is qouted that she is a recipient of an award for outstanding performance from the Pejabat Pendidikan Daerah Kuala Langat recently. SURPRISE!!!! (this news courtesy of Prana by A. Premnath)

PAS akan keluar dari Pakatan Rakyat(Malaysiakini)

PAS tegas mempertahankan Islam sebagai asas perjuangan parti dan sanggup meninggalkan Pakatan Rakyat jika ia tidak menguntungkan Islam.

Perkara itu ditegaskan oleh Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang ketika berucap merasmikan konvensyen PAS Pulau Pinang, Ahad lalu.

Ia disahkan oleh Ketua Dewan Pemuda PAS Pulau Pinang, Mohamed Hafiz Nordin diketika dihubungi Malaysiakini hari ini.

Akhbar tabloid harian, Sinar Harian melaporkan perkara yang sama di muka hadapannya hari ini.

Hafiz berkata, pendirian tersebut menunjukkan bahawa perjuangan PAS mempertahankan Islam konsisten sejak dahulu lagi.

Katanya, ucapan Abdul Hadi itu merujuk tanggal 16 September depan apabila ahli-ahli parlimen Barisan Nasional (BN) melompat kepada Pakatan Rakyat.

Seperti yang telah dinyatakan oleh penasihat PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, penyertaan mereka cukup untuk memboleh Pakatan mengambil alih pemerintahan negara.

Bantu calon PKR

Sementara itu, Hafiz berkata, dalam ucapannya Ahad lalu, presiden PAS itu menegaskan jika ahli Parlimen bukan Islam lebih ramai daripada ahli Parlimen Islam, PAS tidak akan menyertai kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat.

"Tuan Guru (Abdul Hadi) menegaskan dalam ucapannya bahawa kita bukan perkauman tetapi menjadi tanggungjawab parti untuk mempertahankan dasar Islam.

"Beliau juga menegaskan bahawa setelah 50 tahun orang Melayu memerintah negara ini, tetapi jika orang bukan Melayu mengambilalih, (maka) ia sukar kepada negara dan rakyat.

"Oleh itu, kata Tuan Guru lagi, jika ahli Parlimen bukan Islam lebih ramai, ia akan menggugat orang Islam," kata Hafiz.

Katanya, ucapan Abdul Hadi mendapat sokongan dari lebih 100 pemimpin PAS negeri yang menghadiri konvenyen tersebut.

Bagaimanapun, kata Hafiz, Abdul Hadi telah menyatakan bahawa PAS akan tetap menyokong calon Pakatan Rakyat dalam pilihanraya kecil Parlimen Permatang Pauh

Khalid over call to open UiTM to non-Bumis

On Sunday, Abdul Khalid(Selangor MB) proposed that 10 per cent of all new student intakes in UiTM be reserved for non-Bumiputeras and foreign students.

He said the move would be timely as it followed changes in the education system, adding that it would give UiTM students early exposure to be more friendly towards people of other races.

UiTM was set up in 1967 as Institut Teknologi Mara, when then prime minister Tun Abdul Razak Hussein wanted to raise the socio-economic status of Bumiputeras.

In Shah Alam, the university's vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Seri Ibrahim Abu Shah said as a Malay leader, Abdul Khalid should not have brought up the issue. Ibrahim said the issue should not have been brought up by anyone much less by a Malay leader.

"This is somewhat extraordinary. It is weird that a Malay leader should voice out something under Article 153, and I am giving this opinion as a professional for the good of the country and not only for Bumiputeras," he said at a press conference here yesterday.

Ibrahim said Malays only made up 35 per cent of the total intake for higher education in public and private higher learning institutions.

"The majority of students in critical fields like accounting and pharmacy in public higher learning institutions are non-Malays and in private higher learning institutions, 90 per cent of the students are non-Malays.

"Our Constitution stresses balance. This is a statistic which should be understood by any leader, government or opposition body and nobody should begrudge UiTM as the only public university for Bumiputeras."

Ibrahim also slammed Abdul Khalid's statement that UiTM students were less friendly towards people of other races and not as competitive as students in multiracial universities.

He said the claim was baseless, adding that Abdul Khalid's statement showed that he was an unethical and unprofessional leader.

"As a leader, we should speak carefully and not just base our statements on our own perception. Many UiTM students now hold top positions in both the public and private sector."

Ibrahim stressed that only the Federal Government had the authority to open up UiTM to non-Bumiputeras.

"If Pakatan Rakyat becomes the ruling government, not only can they open up UiTM to non-Bumiputeras, they can also change the Constitution, including turning the country into a republic.

"I hope Malaysians will think carefully before they make their decisions and not be influenced by those who speak only for their own political benefit to gain the support of Malays."

Ibrahim said he was disappointed that Abdul Khalid brought up the matter when other races had already accepted the fact that UiTM was a university for Bumiputeras.

"I liken the person who made the statement as a kerbau dicucuk hidung' (just a follower). I could not fault those who push for this as they are fighting for their race.

"But Abdul Khalid as a leader should think before making such a statement and not betray his own race," said Ibrahim who did not discount the possibility that the statement had been made due to pressure from third parties.

The vice-chancellor warned those involved not to bring up the issue again as about 120,000 UiTM students and 350,000 of its alumni were prepared to stage a nationwide protest.

Meanwhile, UiTM pro-chancellor Tan Sri Arshad Ayub told the New Straits Times that UiTM should be kept as it is as the time was not right to make changes.

"The existence of UiTM is in accordance with the New Economic Policy to eradicate poverty and restructure society. Until we really feel comfortable that we have achieved what the NEP sets out to do, UiTM should not be opened to non-Bumiputeras.

"The time is not right as there are still many things to be done. However, if Pakatan Rakyat takes over the government, they can do whatever they want," he said

Policemen accused of threats, violent acts during interrogation

Policemen accused of threats, violent acts during interrogation


IPOH: A primary schoolboy is claiming that police from the Kampar station had slapped him, choked him and scalded his leg to make him confess to a theft.

Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) deputy chairman M. Sarasvathy, who took up his case, handed over a memorandum on the matter to the Perak police yesterday.

She said that last Wednesday, police picked up N. Logeswaran, 10, from his school for suspected theft, and slapped him on his face while two policemen tried to choke him.

“They even tried to melt some plastic on the boy’s private parts and it got his leg,” said Sarasvathy outside the Perak police contingent headquarters here.



“The police also took out a parang and a pistol to threaten the boy,” she said, adding that Logeswaran was also handcuffed and locked up in a dark room.

“He is now traumatised by the incident,” said Sarasvathy, adding that he suffered injuries on the back of his head, wrists and leg after the ordeal.

On Aug 5, Logeswaran was accused by his teacher of stealing her purse containing RM700, MyKad and other documents. But she could not find her belongings on Logeswaran and lodged a police report.

Logeswaran was picked up from his school at 12.30pm last Wednesday and was only released at 10.45pm the same day. His parents were not informed about the incident.

He was taken to the Kampar Hospital at 11pm after complaining of headaches and after he started vomiting, said Sarasvathy. He was transferred to Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun at midnight for observation and was discharged on Monday.

Sungai Siput MP Dr D. Jeyakumar said the police should have followed proper guidelines in handling cases involving a child.

Perak police chief Datuk Deputy Comm Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah, when contacted, said he had received the memorandum and that police were investigating the matter.

MIC Youth bureau: 'Racist' teacher deserves sterner lesson

The MIC Youth education bureau is irked by how a teacher who hurled stinging racial remarks at her students had been let off the hook.

MCPXThe teacher had since been transferred to another school in the same district, but the bureau argued that this was not a form of punishment at all.

In a statement, bureau chief M Saravanan expressed dissatisfaction with the Education Ministry regarding this matter.

"This is an issue which touches on racial sentiments. It does not involve an individual but refers to a large number of Indian students.

"The teacher’s apology to the students and parents involved is not the best solution and does not diminish the gravity of her action," he said.

"Transferring (to another school) is not a form of punishment or harsh (enough) punishment for a teacher who crossed the boundaries," he added.


Police reports lodged

Earlier this month, two students from SMK Telok Panglima Garang in Hulu Langat filed police reports against the history teacher.

They revealed that the teacher had called Indian students 'keling pariah', 'Negro' and 'black monkeys', amongst other derogatory names.

In the reports, the Form Four and Form Five students said the teacher also told students during class that 'Indians came from dogs', Indians are 'children of prostitutes' and the community is 'stupid'.

She also supposedly stated that the community's youths 'do not have testicles', 'always menstruate' and indulge in 'thuggery and theft'.

Meanwhile, Saravanan said any action taken by the ministry must serve as a strong lesson for other educators.

He said the teacher had tarnished the dignity and professionalism of her profession and therefore was not qualified to be an educator.

He also quoted Deputy Education Minister Dr Wee Ka Siong as saying during an interview that if the teacher was found guilty, stern action such as even dismissal would be taken.

"Transferring (her) to another school is not a stern action as promised," said Saravanan.

The education bureau chief also stated that the teacher must open apologise to all quarters through the media.

He also noted that other teachers might do the same thing in order to get transfers to another school.

The statement also revealed that the points raised by the bureau were endorsed by the parents and residents in the area.

Non-resident Indian and Person of Indian Origin

Moving on out

Indians in Malaysia
Malaysia has the largest overseas Chinese and overseas Indian groups outside China and India. Most Indians migrated to Malaysia as plantation laborers under British rule. They are a significant minority ethnic group, making up 9% of the Malaysian population. Most of these are Tamil but some Malayalam- and Telugu- speaking people are also present. They have retained their languages and religion -- 80% of ethnic Indians in Malaysia identify as Hindus. Hinduism in Malaysia diverges from mainstream (post-Vedantic) Hinduism: its main feature is Mother-goddess (Amman) worship; caste deities, tantric rituals, folk beliefs, non-Agamic temples, and animal sacrifice are its other characteristics. Deepavali and Thaipusam are the main festivals and are national holidays along with other festive seasons like Chinese New Year and Christmas. However, there is an increase in agamic worship in Malaysia, due to the efforts of the Malaysian Hindu Sangam and several notable Hindu organisations in Malaysia.
There is also a small community of Indian origin, the Chitty, who are the descendants of Tamil traders who had emigrated before 1500 AD, and Chinese and Malay locals. Considering themselves Tamil, speaking Malay, and practicing Hinduism, the Chittys number about 2000 today.

PAS inviting non-Muslims to its ‘muktamar’

PAS is inviting a large number of non-Muslim observers to its annual muktamar (gathering) which takes place this Friday to Sunday.
Party secretary-general Datuk Kamaruddin Jaafar said five bus-loads of non-Muslims have been invited to observe the muktamar, which marks a first for PAS.
Most of the observers are registered members of the PAS Supporters Club, which is headed by ex-journalist Hu Phang Chiau.
Kamaruddin said the move was to impress upon non-Muslims that PAS appreciated their support and to counter the image of the party as an extremist Muslim movement.
According to the party constitution, PAS can only admit Muslims as full members.
The party has also extended invitations to PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang, but Kamaruddin admitted they may not be able to attended because the dates clashed with the campaigning period of the Permatang Pauh parliamentary by-election.

Vulgar and slanderous blogpost

To all Yesterday i have a email from Mr Punithan Shan That he receive comment from 1 good person.When i read that comment i realy upset.
Please read that comment above.u also upset.

Vanakkam brothers,I have came across a blog that posted my picture and vulgar and slanderous remarks for my post on "MIC-Walking the Talk". My responds.... ...
I was indeed shocked to come across a blog post with my photo and name with some "remarks". Well, i am always open to critics. As i believe it will help me build my character and mold me into a better person.However, I am sad to see a fellow Malaysian brother held me so lowly with vulgar and slanderous remarks. As i ponder and introspect myself, i choose to march forward with full conviction, continue serve my community and nation on the path that i choose.I chose not to comment or retaliate against the so called "scribes" criticism, as his choice of words resembles his personality. For me, now that I have made my point, is to continue my "walk.
A Part of The "remarks"

This Scribe also hopes that this MIC slime ball going by the name of Punithan Shan (picture above left) gets exposed for the lies and spin which Malaysiakini seems to be giving him unfettered access. You can read his trash and spin here

Punithan is such a cheapskate that he adds MALAYSIAKINI on his subject title just to get his articles appear on Malaysiakini. What do you expect from a pariah MIC ass kisser? This guy is claiming in his Blog that the MIC has been doing great things for the Indian community.One look at his face will tell you that Punithan or 'Puritan' Shan is another MICputra who benefited from his ass wiping in MIC. Watch out for this guy as he is trying to split the Indian support for Pakatan Rakyat by hijacking the Hindraf struggle.
In the end of the day, this Scribe has only this to say to Punithan and all the other BN/Umno slime balls:
在这个鬼魂月,我们将看BN/Umno政权的秋天。 Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim在Permatang Pauh将上升象菲尼斯在被征服的BN/Umno政权并且带领Pakatan Rakyat到Putrajaya!


Mr PunithanShan please Don't bother about that comment.Please continue....MIC YOUTH GOPENG with you.

Police reports lodged against 'racist' teacher

Two police reports have been lodged against a secondary school History teacher for allegedly uttering racial slurs against Indian students.
The reports, lodged by two students from SMK Telok Panglima Garang last Friday, stated that a female history teacher had allegedly called Indian students ‘keling pariah', ‘Negro' and ‘black monkeys', amongst other derogatory names.
In the report, the Form Four and Form Five student said the teacher purportedly told students during class that ‘Indians came from dogs', Indians are ‘children of prostitutes' and the community is stupid.
They also allege that teacher had said the community youth ‘did not have testicles', ‘always menstruates' and indulged in thuggery and theft.
The teacher in the Hulu Langat school had also purportedly beaten some Indian students and punished them with push ups if they were late for class.
The Form Four student in his report said students were "ashamed and embarrassed" by these incidents.
"She told the Indian students to stand up and said she wanted to test how we would react to the word ‘keling pariah'.
"We said we did not like it and she raised her voice and repeatedly called us ‘keling pariah' and wrote the words on the blackboard," his report stated.
Ministry awaiting report
According to the Star, Coalition of Malaysian Indian NGOs secretary Gunaraj George said the exposure to such verbal abuse will only breed hatred and racial polarisation in schools.
"No one in his or her right frame of mind would have said these things. Given this, the best option would be for the teacher to be assigned to a desk job and not be allowed to be near youngsters anymore," he was quoted as saying after handing in the police reports to the school authorities.
Deputy Education Minister Dr Wee Ka Siong reportedly said the schoolteacher might be sacked if the allegations are proven to be true but is awaiting an official report before taking any action.
Meanwhile, the school when contacted, said they were not permitted to give a statement as the matter is currently being investigated by the police.
Its headmaster Nordin Bin Saad is on leave and was not available for comment.
Tamil dailies today reported that about 1,000 angry parents and members of the public gathered at the school yesterday to show their anger against the teacher.

THOSE days when newly Malaysia was born, most of the teacher’s job was hold by Indians. They educate students, color skin blindly as they consider their job to be noble. This Indians community the most who worked as government servants under department such as JKR, Electricity Board, Water Board, Railway , Postal etc; build the road system, build the railway track, build up the postal service etc and the manpower behind Rubber industries which contribute major economic income to the government together with the mine industries done by the chinese brought this nation out of poverty level.From those people hard work, comes government productivity of Malay people under systems like NEP who had took over all the government job post once for all. And teachers as above, as well as the government and some politician’s are now showing back their gratitude to the minor society by such act as mention above news from Malaysiakini. Above mention case is neither the first nor it going to be the last case as people like this is what the past and present government producing, leaving out those who had broader mind due to exposure to outside world. But this broader mindset people were still in minority and grooving population of this kind people with “Bangsa Malaysia “mindset which could able to remember the contributions of our late grand citizens of this nation, regards their skin color, as all equal and had done their part for this nation, although some were even born outside this country is to be welcomed.This nation were build not by a single hand, the history verified this statement and showing back the gratitude for all the souls which had build this nation by treating their grandchildrens equal, were the only option the people in power can do. But unfortunately, that seems to be not the course. Will this kind of basic morale attitude will be a part of Malaysia in future, only time can answer.

MIC dakwa pelan KL 'aneh'

Presiden MIC Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu mempertikaikan kesahihan Draf Pelan Struktur Kuala Lumpur kerana mencatatkan penduduk India di ibu negara hanya berjumlah kira-kira 160,000 orang. "Pelannya antara lain mencatat bahawa Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur hanya mempunyai kira-kira 160,000 masyarakat kaum India. "Saya dapati ini agak aneh. Kami mempunyai kira-kira 80,000 pengundi berdaftar kaum India di Kuala Lumpur," bekas menteri kerja raya dipetik sebagai berkata dalam satu laporan Bernama hari ini."Sekiranya satu keluarga mempunyai dua orang anak dan sekiranya kita darab dengan empat (termasuk dua ibu bapa), angkanya akan mencatat terdapat sebanyak 320,000 masyarakat India. "Macam mana pula dengan masyarakat India yang tidak mendaftar sebagai pengundi?Beliau mencadangkan draf tersebut diperbaiki sebelum ia dijadikan satu dasar kerajaan, lapor agensi berita itu lagi.Beliau berkata demikian selepas taklimat draf tersebut oleh konsultan Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) di ibu pejabat MIC semalam.

Palanivel: Umno must talk to its 'BN brothers'


The Umno top leadership should begin both formal and informal talks with component parties in the Barisan Nasional (BN), said MIC deputy president G Palanivel.
In a press statement yesterday, he said this should be an on-going process.
"Umno which is the 'big brother' in BN can achieve more by having continuous dialogue with its other ‘brothers’ in the coalition on various issues that have a bearing on national unity as well as other national policies," he added.
Palanivel was commenting on Minister in Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Abdul Aziz’s statement Saturday that Umno should stop wasting its time in trying to talk to PAS.
The MIC leader said BN component parties, which were not pre-informed of the talks, and the nation "watched with a mixture of apprehension and optimism Umno’s move in holding talks with PAS."
'Uncertain verdict'
Palanivel said even though it has been more than four months since the general election, the nation has been on a continuous election mode.
"We can understand that various factors have been keeping our national leaders very busy but it is time for them to give more thorough attention to the state of affairs in the component parties and to understand their view points as well
"Many perceived that the March 8 general election has given the nation some sort of an ‘uncertain verdict’ giving rise to speculation about by elections and snap general elections," he added.
In view of this, Palanivel said there is a need to stabilise the situation with confidence building measures, and one such measure should be to have talks with individual component parties regularly and at various levels.
Following the polls, which witnessed a major political setback for the ruling coalition, Umno and PAS held secret talks, which among others, discussed the possibility of power sharing.
Meanwhile, the MIC deputy president also welcomed Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s statement on moves to increase non-Malays in the civil service.
He said the prime minister should also look at increasing the participation and role of non-Malays in decision making positions in the other areas such as universities, GLCs, statutory bodies, banks and media industries.

RM3 mil aid for young Indian entrepreneurs

The Government has allocated RM3 mil to provide financial aid to young Indian entrepreneurs, MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said.
He said that assistance would be channelled through Tekun Nasional, a body under the Ministry of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives and the MIC-owned Social Strategic Foundation (YSS).
Speaking to reporters after a briefing by Tekun managing director Datuk Abdul Rahim Hassan here Thursday, he said loans of RM10,000 each had been approved for three applications to develop their businesses so far.
Samy Vellu said Indians below 40 should use the opportunity to seek the financial assistance from Tekun to upgrade their businesses.
"No one should come and say that the government has not done anything for the Indian community. There are opportunities available," he said.
Samy Vellu said the MIC and YSS would also organise workshops in the respective states to disseminate the information on Tekun to the youths over the next two months.
Abdul Rahim said Tekun, which was set up in 1998, has already disbursed RM90 mil to bumiputras to develop their business and was expanding it to provide assistance to the Indian youths.
He said a decision of the applications would be made within 14 days if all the documents were in order, compared to the previous period of three months.
"Tekun would request additional allocation from the government if the RM3 mil allocation was inadequate," he said.

IPF not joining Pakatan

The Indian Progressive Front (IPF) has no intention of joining Pakatan Rakyat, its acting president Puan Sri Jayashree Pandithan said.
She said that IPF would always be loyal to Barisan Nasional and the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
"We will continue to support him as the leader of the nation and the leader of the ruling Barisan," she said in her maiden press conference at the IPF headquarters in Seri Kembangan.
She took over the presidency of the 20-year-old party early this year from her ailing husband Tan Sri M.G. Pandithan who passed away on May 29.
Jayashree said IPF would continue to perform the duties and responsibilities to the Indian community in the country.
"I have made visits to several states and the members are still intact with the leadership and have pledged their loyalty and support to the leadership. I am determined to focus on the eradication of poverty amongst Indians and creating an educated society besides focusing on the welfare and health issues of the poor," she said.
To a question, she said that IPF still maintains the objective of wanting to be a member of the Barisan, a vision of the late founding president Pandithan.
"I believe MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu would not have any objections to our request to be admitted into the ruling coalition," she said.
Jayashree said that she had already sought a meeting with the Prime Minister but had not received an appointment yet.
She said that the party had filed a writ of summons on July 22 against six former members of IPF for deceiving and confusing the people by using the party's name, flag, letterhead and registration number.
"These members claim to be leaders of IPF Bersatu but the truth is that all their activities had been carried out in the name of IPF Malaysia. They are not a registered party or a society and they are functioning under our name, claiming to be our promoters," she said.
Jayashree said their actions were a serious crime involving theft of the party's name and symbols.
IPF legal adviser S. Selvam said the writ, which was served on the six on Monday, had sought a declaration that they were illegal and an injunction to prevent them from using the IPF name, symbol, letterhead and registration number and RM1mil in damages.

Find out community’s problems, MIC Youth told


MIC Youth leaders must go to the ground to find out the community's problems if the party is to regain ground lost in the March general election.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department S.K. Devamany, in making the call, said many Youth leaders did not perform.
“If this culture continues, we will not be able to gain the trust of the Indian community. Only those who are committed should take up posts in the Youth wing. We don’t need seat warmers,” he said after a two-day brainstorming session for 50 MIC state youth leaders on Sunday.
Devamany, who is Cameron Highlands MP, also briefed the leaders on the current political situation in the country as well as the Government’s efforts to assist the community.
National MIC Youth coordinator T. Mohan admitted there were weaknesses in the wing.
“I admit there are some Youth leaders who have not performed in their states for more than six years but goals have been set for the new state leaders,” he said.
Mohan, who was appointed last month, said leaders who failed to perform effectively would be replaced in the Youth polls scheduled next May.
“I have given them guidelines to carry out in implementing the programmes in their states. If they adhere to them, there is no reason for them not to succeed,” he said.
Mohan, who also urged the leaders in the division and state to be vocal on issues affecting the community, promised to give RM1,000 monthly allocations to the states to carry out their activities.
He said leaders must not be satisfied in getting their activities highlighted in the Tamil newspapers but should also strive to get publicity in English and Malay newspapers as well as television stations.
The Youth leaders discussed ways to rebuild the image of the wing, effective community development and service as well as how to woo 50,000 youths into the party before the year-end.
