India should impose economic sanctions on Malaysia: Ramagopalan

Chennai: Hindu Munnani Founder Ramagopalan has demanded that India should impose economic sanctions on the Malaysian Government which is devastating the rights of Malaysian Indians.

The statement released by him on this demand:

Attacks are ongoing on ethnic Hindus in Malaysia. False charges are being foisted by the Government of Malaysia to subdue the resolve of Malaysian Indians to defend their human rights.

The Hindu students are not allowed to pursue their studies in schools and colleges. They are being driven out of their jobs. Hindu houses and temples are being demolished.

Every human community has inherent rights to protest, in a democratic manner, for defending their human rights. Malaysian Government is disregarding this fundamental human right. Condemning this violation, Commonwealth should decide to debar the membership of Malaysia in the Commonwealth.

Until justice is rendered to Malaysian Hindus, Indian Government should ban imports of palm oil and other commodities from Malaysia. Malaysian Government should be compelled by India to protect the Hindus by slapping economic sanctions.
