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

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."
