Samy Vellu Will Follow HINDRAF Footsteps!!

Thanks To Hanief.Blogspot

PRAVEEN: Hehehehehe! The only thing i can do is just laugh at these bunch of losers. Samy Vellu and MIC members had a wake up call that hindraf will come to the streets.They were too busy cheating the indians. When hindraf hit the roads for justice, Samy Vellu said "the time will come they will learn a lesson." Now the "lesson" he meant was ISA but people had to teach a lesson in return and thats the lesson of Makkal Sakthi @ People's power. Still we see in the news Samy Vellu is trying his level best to bring back MIC and his crocodile technology. What is crocodile technology? insincere weeping or a hypocritical display of emotions. The expression comes from an ancient anecdote that crocodiles weep in order to lure their prey, or that they cry for the victims they are eating. The video above shows that MIC is going to follow foot steps of HINDRAF leaders. I have also included and attachment of STAR newspaper article claming that SAMY VELLU CALLS FOR RELEASE OF HINDRAF 5. Below the article i have post up videos that samy vellu claims HINDRAF is USELESS.

KUALA LUMPUR: MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu on Sunday asked the government to release the five Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leaders under detention, saying two of them should be freed sooner because one was ill and the other was now an elected representative. He said R. Kenghadaran, 40, "is very sick" and M. Manoharan, 46, had won a seat in the March 8 general election. Manoharan had won the Kota Alam Shah state seat in Selangor on a DAP ticket.

Samy Vellu also said that V. Ganabatirau, 34, and K. Vasantha Kumar, 34, had not been very much involved in the massive rally organised by the unregistered Hindraf in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 25 last year, which was a reason for the five to be detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

The fifth Hindraf leader under detention is P. Uthayakumar. The MIC president spoke at a news conference after opening a workshop on "Rebranding the MIC" attended by the party's 150 divisional leaders, here.

"I will raise it (the issue of their release) with the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) after he returns from Sabah," he said. ---BERNAMA

HINDRAF Waythamoorthy's press conference in Chennai India, Tuesday, March 25, 2008

KUALA LUMPUR - The Malaysian minister responsible for internal security on Friday rejected opposition calls for the release of an ethnic Indian state legislator detained under a contentious tough security law."We must react to the country's internal security and public order," newly appointed home affairs and internal security minister Syed Hamid Albar was quoted saying by the state Bernama news agency.Malaysia's opposition last week pressed for five ethnic Indian activists, including a man who won a seat in recent elections, to be freed from the Internal Security Act or ISA, which allows for indefinite detention without trial.Lawyer Manoharan, standing for the Democratic Action Party (DAP), was elected from his detention centre -- soundly beating the government incumbent in a central Selangor state seat in the March 8 general elections.

Syed Hamid said Manoharan will be forced to sit out of the newly formed state assembly when it convenes."You definitely can't be at two places at the same time," he said.The five are leaders of rights group Hindraf who were detained last December for organising a mass rally claiming discrimination against ethnic Indians.

HINDRAF: 100th Day Rally in San Francisco (USA)


We, a group of concerned Malaysian Indians residing in California, held a rally, at the United Nations Plaza, on March 22, 2008 to mark and protest the 100th day detention of our 5 brothers, Uthayakumar, Manoharan, Kengadharan, Ganabathirau and Vasanthakumar. The rally was a complete success with about 40 people attending. The participants comprised of people from all walks of life, and included Mr. Samir Kalra, from the Hindu American Foundation, who all came together to show solidarity with our Malaysian Indian brothers and sisters. Ms. Sunita Sohrabji from the India-West newspaper was also at hand to cover our rally.

In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants of this rally for their kind attendance and enthusiastic support. I also would like to personally thank the Hindu American Foundation and India-West for their strong support of the Malaysian Indian cause. Lastly, I again call upon the Malaysian government to fulfill our five demands immediately.

Thank you,
Bhuvan Govindasamy.

Internet addictions: A real medical menace?

Source : YAHOO

Alcohol, drugs, food, sex, and even shopping are all candidates for medical treatment and are recognized as genuine mental disorders, so what about the Internet? Internet addiction -defined as "excessive gaming, sexual pre-occupations, and email/text messaging" - is becoming so common that at least one psychiatrist says it merits inclusion in psychiatry's official handbook of mental illness, the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders."

Dr. Jerald Block of the Oregon Health and Science University is the latest voice pushing for this inclusion, noting that tech junkies display genuinely debilitating behavior, including drug-like cravings, withdrawal, and a constant need for more and better gear - just like a substance addict might exhibit.

But other doctors comment that Internet addiction, while it may be real, is too new of a condition and needs further study before being medically classified. There might be something to this: No one wants people being medicated or institutionalized if they aren't genuinely ill.
The "Manual of Mental Disorders" won't be published again until 2012, but an early draft will arrive for public comment in 2009. Meanwhile, mind docs say the problem is growing, now possibly affecting up to 10 percent of Internet users. Recent studies are surprising, indicating the problem is worst not among game-obsessed teens, but rather among middle-aged women who stay at home, constantly on the computer as a way of connecting to the outside world.Is computer use (or computer downtime) causing a problem in your life? If so, you might be an addict. But you'll have to wait a few more years to find out for sure.

Demolished temples rebuilt, culprits disciplined. Plantation giant Sime Darby has revealed that it had investigated and disciplined individuals who were responsible for demolishing two small Hindu temples and a shrine in Bradwall Estate in Rantau, Negeri Sembilan.The temples and shrine were demolished on March 5 at Lin Sum estate, a division of Bradwall estate, causing anger among hundreds of Hindu workers in the estate.News of the demolitions also prompted many to accuse the temple management of tearing down the structures without having any respect for Hindus in the estate.

Sime Darby issued a statement yesterday to clarify the matter, stating that it took immediate steps to assure estate workers that the demolished structures would be replaced and the culprits brought to action.Sime Darby however did not disclose who demolished the shrine and the two temples. It also did not reveal what action was taken against them.The plantation giant said that its executive vice president Azhar Abdul Hamid and other senior managers visited the estate on the night of the demolition and assured estate workers that all demolished structures would be rebuilt immediately.

It added that two days later, work on the small shrine next to the workers’ quarters was completed. Sime Darby also said that it worked with the estate’s temple committee and estate workers to rebuild the other two temples according to the specifications of the committee, stating that all foundation and structural works for both the temples were completed.Politically-motivatedIt added that it was now up to the temple committee to pick an auspicious day to perform the necessary religious rites before workers can worship there. “We tried to minimise disruption to the people’s religious practices by rebuilding the temples as quickly as possible.“This was an unsanctioned incident and we want to assure the workers at Bradwall Estate that we are committed to correcting what happened.

That is why reconstruction of the shrine and temples were completed so quickly,” said Azhar.In the aftermath of the demolition, Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Mohamad Hasan claimed that the demolition was politically-motivated, undertaken by certain quarters who tried to incite hatred towards Barisan Nasional candidates.Mohamad, who was contesting to retain the Rantau state seat then, said he was told by those responsible that they wanted to see how well BN would handle the matter. "They also said they wanted to see how many votes (Umno Youth vice-head) Khairy Jamaluddin, the BN candidate for the Rembau parliamentary seat, would get on Saturday (as a result of the incident)," he had said. Both Mohamad and Khairy won their seats in the election.

GoodBye Mohd Radzi Sheikh Ahmad And Rafidah Aziz

March 18 (Bloomberg) -- Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi ousted Trade and Industry Minister Rafidah Aziz and thinned his cabinet in an attempt to woo back voters after the ruling coalition's worst ever election showing.

Muhyiddin Yassin, former agriculture minister, replaces Rafidah, a cabinet member since 1977, Abdullah, 68, said today at his office in Putrajaya, outside Kuala Lumpur. He retained Najib Razak as deputy premier and defense minister.

Abdullah, facing demands to step down from party members including former Premier Mahathir Mohamad, is bringing in fresh blood to rebuild his National Front coalition and win back investor confidence. While the reshuffle may muffle some critics, Abdullah reiterated today he has his party's support and pledged to continue development projects started in his first term.

KUALA LUMPUR 19 Mac -- Bekas Menteri Hal Ehwal Dalam Negeri, Datuk Mohd Radzi Sheikh Ahmad meletakkan semua jawatannya dalam parti berkuat kuasa hari ini.

Menurut Radzi, beliau berbuat demikian kerana tidak mampu lagi bekerja dan perletakan jawatan itu direstui oleh Pengerusi Barisan Nasional (BN), Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Radzi ialah Setiausaha Agung UMNO dan BN.

Jelasnya, beliau bagaimanapun akan tetap berkhidmat sebagai Ahli Parlimen Kangar kerana rakyat masih memerlukan perkhidmatannya. -- Utusan.

New Formation and New Styles!

The elections is definitely a dawn of the new age in the Malaysian political scene.It was more than a awakening for most of us and I’m sure we never thought the this day would ever come!! It shows that Malaysians as a whole have matured tremendously and wont settle for second best anymore.

If you watched the coverage of the election results some people were out with racist remarks blaming some of the cause of all this happening but whats wrong with what has happened? I for one feel that its time for us to stand up and be counted. We are all Malaysians and we are all the same!! Religion is no longer main stream, not a good enough reason for anyone to get priority over another.Religion should be something personal and not a reason for giving a upper hand to anyone.

Its the new age it should be a even playing field to all. If you want to do well, work at it! Nobody should be given a golden plate to stand on and dictate ,that is the thing of the past! Malay,Chinese,Indian or any other race in Malaysia we are all brothers and sisters of this soil we call home! This is our country and we should be proud of where we have come so far!

"Ini Satu Ombak baru",Samy Vellu

Look at the members of the parliament, logically the Indians are under represented with all the MIC personal crashing out but the others that made it will fight the cause for us all and I at least have faith in them!

DAP,PKR and PAS have got their chance they have been asking for now. I hope they don’t let us down and do well for their own good and the good of the people. One things for sure, if they don’t live up to it…..The mature nation wont be as kind as they have been!!

Bangsa Malaysia is born, lets now take it to the next level!

Umno in turmoil: Anwar Ibrahim

Source : malaysiakini

Anwar Ibrahim takes the opportunity to thank online media and bloggers for the support they gave to the opposition coalition at the recently concluded 12th general elections.

Shuffling deckchairs

The prime minister fights for survival

But it scraped barely half of the vote at national level and, most importantly, lost the two-thirds parliamentary majority it had held since 1974, which had allowed it to change the constitution at will.

TEN days after suffering heavy losses in a general election, Malaysia's prime minister, Abdullah Badawi, shuffled his cabinet on March 18th, hoping to stave off calls for his resignation from within his party, the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO). The removal of some scandal-tainted ministers and the elevation of a judicial reformer showed he is at least trying to get to grips with his problems. But Mr Badawi still seems to be shuffling deckchairs on a personal Titanic.

The National Front coalition, led by UMNO, won this election, as it has every one since independence from Britain in 1957. But it scraped barely half of the vote at national level and, most importantly, lost the two-thirds parliamentary majority it had held since 1974, which had allowed it to change the constitution at will.

Straight after the election, Mr Badawi's embittered predecessor, Mahathir Mohamad, called on him to resign. The retired leader's son, Mukhriz Mahathir, became the first UMNO official to echo his father's call. Another party figure, Razaleigh Hamzah, a former finance minister, called for an emergency party congress and later offered to stand against Mr Badawi if enough members supported him. Even if not, the knives may come out at the party's annual congress in August.

So Mr Badawi's survival rests on how his new ministerial line-up is received and how well it performs. His first change was to cut the cabinet list from a bloated 90 to a still excessive 68, merging several ministries. Some ministers were easy to cull, having crashed to defeat in the election. One such was Samy Vellu, the only representative of Malaysia's ethnic Indians (8% of the population) in the cabinet. He bore the brunt of Indian anger at discrimination in favour of the Malay majority.

The most notable sacking was that of Rafidah Aziz, believed to be the world's longest-serving trade minister, with over 20 years in the job. Ms Rafidah faced criticism over alleged corruption in her ministry's granting of car-import licences. The most noticeable absence was Khairy Jamaluddin, Mr Badawi's ambitious (and disliked) son-in-law, who might have expected a post after winning his seat (he was also once an intern at The Economist).

The most promising appointment was that of Zaid Ibrahim, a prominent lawyer, who will join the prime minister's office to oversee reforms of the justice system. Mr Zaid has criticised the government's sluggishness in investigating allegations of judge-bribing and his calls for a royal inquiry into the accusations were reluctantly accepted by Mr Badawi late last year. The inquiry, still going on, has heard damning testimony against Eusoff Chin, the chief justice from 1994 to 2000.

Another welcome move by Mr Badawi, if followed through, is that ministers will be required to disclose their assets. Such declarations could make interesting reading. One disclosure statement likely to be perused closely will be that of Muhammad Taib, one of the cabinet's not-so-new "new faces". He resigned as chief minister of Selangor state in 1997, after being arrested at Brisbane airport in Australia for failing to declare a suitcase of money he had with him. Both the Australian and Malaysian courts acquitted him, but he was an odd choice for a prime minister seeking to project a cleaner image.

Of course, Mr Badawi did not have a free hand. He must satisfy factions within his coalition while finding seats for some token ethnic Chinese and Indians to disguise its increasingly Malay-dominated profile. Nevertheless, by dropping several big-hitters he may have created fresh enemies. The shuffle has not, overall, dispelled speculation that he may have to stand down, perhaps in favour of his deputy, Najib Razak. Mr Najib, however, has challenges of his own: his political adviser and two officers from a police unit that reports to him are on trial for the murder of a Mongolian fashion model. Though not accused himself, Mr Najib's prospects may be fatally damaged by the case. - THE ECONOMIST

An open letter to Dato S Subramaniam and others who want to resurrect the now dead MIC


The abandonment of MIC by Malaysian Indians is surely a reflection that MIC has failed itself significantly in representing the very people it serves.

MIC failed the Indians, when did barely nothing to prevent the temple demolitions. MIC failed when its leaders did not ensure that budgeted allocations actually went towards needy Tamil schools. MIC failed when it's leaders did not negotiate for better salaries for Estate Workers, or find jobs for displaced Estate workers. May we ask what MIC did towards halting the rising rates of gangsterism within the Malaysian Indian community?

We did not hear a squeak from MIC leaders when time and again Indians died in police custody. Once again where was the voice of MIC leaders when our deserving students did not get placement in the Universities? Neither did we hear our MIC representatives clamour to give housing for poor urban Indians. Where were the MIC leaders when our community were deprived of jobs and when the number of Indians in Government dropped alarmingly?

Sir, sorry to say, that our MIC leaders together with the ruling Government wilfully neglected the Indian community. So now you tell us, why do we Indians need such category of self serving leaders?

Though we Malaysian Indians had MPs and other leaders in Government, rarely did anyone take up their cause, a case in point, the hundreds of Memos sent in by Hindraf went virtually ignored and unanswered by all in government. When in actual fact, the MIC should have taken onus to address the problems enumerated in the Hindraf demands, this being specific Indian issue. Instead leaders went all out to demonise us, resorting to all manner of name calling from penyangkak to extremists to murderers even to the extent of our esteemed police force's vivid and imaginary terrorist links.

Why you too Sir, did not make any efforts to take up the Indian cause, surely with your connections you could have highlighted the Indian plight, but then I guess all of you very busy pursuing your own personal and business interests. Why did you not use your influence with the Government to speak on behalf of the thousands of Indians who came out on the streets in a voice of discontent? Were you lounging in one of the hotels on Jalan Ampang watching us Malaysian Indians being jetted with chemical waters and tear gas?

Consider the 12th General Elections and see for yourself how the Indians rallied with the opposition especially in constituencies where MIC candidates were contesting. Indians tirelessly worked to ensure that MIC candidates failed to get elected. Is that not proof in itself, that the very people MIC represents, in effect ensured its failure? Otherwise how do you attribute that even the CEO of MIC and his deputy failed to get elected, it was not by coincidence but the very intention of frustrated and marginalised Malaysian Indians.

One of the main reasons for the debacle of the BN in this elections, is that the Indians previously complacent openly came out in large numbers to assist the opposition candidates, be it DAP, PAS or PKR, it did not matter to them whether the candidates were Indian, Chinese, Malay or any other, nevertheless Indians gave their whole hearted support to any candidate other than BN.

By now you should know that the reason for the component parties' devastation in the 12th GE was primarily because the minorities felt that their leaders failed to represent and voice out the discontent of the people. This in turn effected the rise of the elite UMNO and their racial policies. Just to illustrate, when the Keris was raised, those who mumbled and grumbled a bit, were seen in the next days papers, smiling and shaking hands, with the keris wielding leader who today unfortunately still sits in cabinet, while the rest of us were furious and feared our very future in this nation.

To your question on who will represent the Indians, there are enough Indians in Parliament and the State Assemblies to ensure the welfare of the Indians. Right now there is a strong Indian presence in five state governments, so to you we say we have sufficient representation of Indians in whom we have placed our trust and confidence.

For the development of respective Arts and Culture, there should not be a problem to initiate societies and associations for the promotion of language, literature, culture, arts, music and dance.

It is timely that big industrialists and entrepreneurs come forward to develop, train and mentor the younger generation. I am equally sure that you should not have a problem with your expertise and being a person of influence to establish ways to promote economic growth of marginalised and deserving Malaysians irrespective of race or religion.

To Samy Velu, who today said "who will represent the Indians"? Go and seek penance in Kasi and prepare yourself to meet your maker, your end is nearing. Be sure you have answers for your bad performance and your major role in the making of a powerful opposition, for certain, they have already thanked you for this. Meditate how your devious actions led to the sad demise of MIC. By raising the tolls, in amassing huge amounts of wealth. We ofcourse in the elections did not forget how the Hindraf assemblers were treated at Batu Caves and we gave you the answer by booting you out. Be gone. You have negated all the the efforts and the good done by the early founders of MIC, you have dragged all their work into the stinking muck.

By the way, Dato Subramaniam and others you could earn back some semblence of respect if you could get not just the Hindraf 5 but also all other ISA detainees released. However if you wish to serve,let it be all Malaysians, not just one community, that is our sincere advice to you.

We have now reached a mature stage whereby we the people, Malays, Chinese, Indians and others will directly involve ourselves with our elected representatives to ensure that all our interests are taken care of. We have made our voice heard in this elections and we say once and for all, be gone all yea who want to encourage racism and partisan politics in Malaysia, that was once and no more shall the people let self-serving politicians divide us.


Right now, there are stalwarts who are true patriots, working to ensure the success of the Barisan Rakyat.

Barisan Rakyat is the only way forward for Malaysia.

Demolished Hindu temple to be rebuilt on new site

Source : Email, republished from YENNAMIKE BLOGSPOT

YennaMike Says : "Not bad for someone who has been in the office for only a week"

Praveen Says : "Good Start!!!"

SHAH ALAM: A new site for the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in Kampung Rimba Jaya, Padang Jawa, which was demolished in November last year has been approved.

Mayor Mazalan Md Noor said the temple would be rebuilt soon on a 10,000sq feet land near the Keretapi Tanah Melayu quarters, a much bigger site than the original temple.

He was speaking to reporters after Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Shah Alam MP Khalid Abd Samad visited the Rimba Jaya flats Monday.

The Hindu temple was ordered torn down by the authorities as it stood in the vicinity of the Rimba Jaya squatter settlement.

The 11ha site in the area is owned by Ken Rimba Jaya Sdn Bhd.

“The developer has been directed by the state government to provide the land and RM40,000, the cost of the building construction.

“It is up to the temple committee and the developer to decide when to start the temple construction,” he said.

Mazalan said the Shah Alam City Council had cleared up the land to make way for the temple project.

Earlier, Khalid and Anwar had a dialogue with the Kampung Rimba Jaya residents and the demolition of the temple was among the hottest issues raised during the 15-minute meeting.

Khalid said the new state government was working hard to solve the squatter problems in the state.
