I was browsing the You tube vids as usual and found this one and it was interesting a protest that drew the attention of the global audience to a more important topic of minorities in the Islamic republic which has continuously (of late) demolished their temples and neglected them in the growth of the nation and apathy towards them in the name of the Bhumi Putra policy (sons of the soil). The organisation leading the campaign is HINDRAF a conglomerate of NGOs and religious organisations. Here too there is politics the representative of teh Indian community Mr velu has been in Government ever since and as usual and as is the case with most politicians he has dumped his people.
Here is an interview by the HINDRAF leader (Courtesy rediff.com) P Wytha Moorthy, HINDRAF’s president
‘I appeal to all human rightists to help Malaysian minorities’ (click here for the interview)
After an estimated 10,000 Indian Tamils in the banner of HINDRAF protested and were raided upon by the govt in the name of peace keeping and national repute the HINDRAF leaders were abused and accused of garnering support from militant LTTE and (allegedly militant) RSS.
