Hindraf Statement on Release of 2 Hindraf Lawyers

Hindraf – Chairman

The release of 13 ISA detainees is  nothing but a ploy to win the hearts of the people in the 3 by elections.

Dato Najib should display his seriousness in addressing lack of Democracy in Malaysia and not short change the people of their democratic needs. He should immediately release all ISA detainees unconditionally and order the immediate closure of Malaysia’s own  Gautanamo Bay – Kamunting detention camp. Without this act the Malaysians could not be fooled by Dato Najib’s antics of “ democratic reform”.

Uthayakumar had always said that he doesn’t mind being detained until the Government closes down kamunting camp and previously conveyed through family members to me that  “ I should be the last man walking out of kamunting”.

OBAMA WHO HAILS FROM A COUNTRY THAT FACES THE LARGEST THREAT OF NATIONAL SECURITY  IN THE WORLD COULD RELEASE ALL PRISONERS AND CLOSE DOWN GUANTANAMO BAY. WHAT IS IN THE WAY FOR NAJIB TO DO THE SAME.

I have request for ‘Obama’ Ganesan

BN candidate for Bukit Selambau, S. Ganesan said “I want to be Malaysia’s Obama to safeguard the welfare of all the races and become an idol for the community, because despite being born in a very poor family, I have managed to succeed in life through education.”

Later, he handed over RM210,000 for the SJK Tamil School in Sungai Getah, provided for under the second stimulus package.

I applaud Ganesan’s personal dream. However, I hope he is not another naive and star strucked politician trying to become the world’s most popular politician, President Barack Obama.

Can Ganesan fulfill my request?

1) Can Ganesan abandon racial politics? Become an idol of all Malaysians and not just his own community. The real Obama did not run for the presidency as an African-American candidate. He had broad appeal.

2) Can Ganesan stand up for justice, transparency and accountability? Is Ganesan willing to stand up against his party boss and correct some of his misgivings?

3) Is Ganesan willing to stand up against the excesses and abuses of UMNO? During his campaign, Obama had spoken up against the old politics of Washington.

If Ganesan wants to become a Malaysian Obama, he should be able to respond to my request quite easily.

SAY NO TO RACISM!

    The remaining Hindraf detainees are probably in Semi Valu’s pocket, to be offered to Hindraf and the other Indians in order to win support for MIC in Bukit Selambau. If MIC does win and, as a reward, the remaining Hindraf detainees are freed, that could break the backbone of the Malaysian Indian revolution.
