Re: Truth and Reconciliation Commission on the discrimination and
Maginalisation of Malaysian Indians

May we firstly congratulate your goodself and your party in winning the 12th General Election held on 8/03/2008.

As your goodselves have acknowledged the winds of change and the past mistakes, may we humbly propose that your goodselves form the Truth and Reconciliation Commission with regards to the very sad state of affairs, discrimination and maginalisation of especially the 80% Malaysian Indian poor. With the sincere formation of this commission we hope to move forward and grow together from now onwards in the True spirit of oneness, and equality and equal opportunity for all the poor especially the Malaysian Indian poor and mostly importantly humanity. The Malaysian Indians have persistently complained about the following:

(1) Hardly any kindergartens in Tamil schools as opposed to Malay schools and the kemas kindergartens, which literally excludes Indians.

(2) After 50 years of independence about two thirds of 523 Tamil schools in Malaysia are not fully aided.

(3) Indians are not allowed into Mara Junior Colleges, Fully Residential Schools, Giat Mara Technical Schools, Matriculation Schools, Islamic Universities and many other educational institutions save and except the very few to show color.

(4) All deserving Indians unlike their Malay Muslim brothers are denied places in the local public universities especially in the critical courses like medicine, dentistry, engineering, bio technology, accountancy etc. on an equal opportunity basis.

(5) Overseas posting, training, scholarships, placements are denied to all deserving Indian students on an equal opportunity basis.

(6) 30% of this Indian population can’t even properly read and write in the National language.

(7) 60% of deaths in police custody (one in every two weeks) and by police shooting (one in every week) and detainees in police lock ups and prisons are Indians when they only form about 8% of the total population.

(8) Indians have the highest suicide rate (for every 100,000 there are 35 Indians, 8 Chinese and 5 Malays).

(9) Civil service jobs for Indians have dwindled from about 60% in 1957 to about 2% today in 2008 with very little promotion prospects.

(10) Top executive and managerial positions in the civil, corporate, banking, government linked companies, small and medium sized industries are denied to all deserving Indians on an equal opportunity basis.

(11) Hindu Temples are indiscriminately demolished at the rate of one Hindu Temple in every three weeks.

(12) 40,000 children are without even birth certificate in the first place, in the state of Selangor alone (Estimated at least 100,000 nationwide) which is their innate birthright.

(13) Direct discrimination, marginalisation and racism from the counter level onwards both at the public and private sectors.

(14) 60% of police abuse of powers cases are against the Indians (unlawful detention and torture etc).

(15) Affirmative action programs e.g. PNB, Bank Pertanian, Felda, Felcra, Risda, UDA are completely closed to the Indians.

(16) Licenses, permits, business opportunities are denied to all deserving Indians on an equal opportunity basis.

(17) Distribution of contracts, projects, legal work, panel ship etc. both in private and public sectors almost always exclude Indians.

With this we hope from now onwards the Indians would be treated accordingly to Article 8 of the Federal Constitution (Equality before the Law). We hope for sincerity on your part. We hereby pray for an appointment to meet your good self with the sincere view to move forward.

Thank you,

Yours faithfully

Malaysia’s Hindraf leader opposes ‘only Indians’ deal [IANS]

Malaysia's Hindraf leader opposes 'only Indians' deal [IANS]Malaysia's interest in signing an agreement with India to protect Indian workers is a diversionary tactic intended to keep the latter quiet on the rights of Malaysians of Indian origin, a leader of the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) said here Monday. "Such an MoU (memorandum of understanding) protecting just the Indian workers' rights will effectively silence the government of India on the issue of rights of Malaysians of Indian origin," said Hindraf leader P. Waytha Moorthy. "There are workers of all nationalities in Malaysia and the country has enough laws to protect foreign workers. An MoU with India will only create discrimination between foreign workers in Malaysia."Moorthy, who frequently visits Tamil Nadu, also called for immediate release of five Hindraf leaders being held for over 100 days in Malaysian jails under the draconian Internal Securities Act (ISA) of that country. He said: "Hindraf will continue to fight for the abrogation of this Act." Hindraf has demanded that Malaysian Prime Minister Dato Seri A.A. Badawi "table an act (in parliament) to repeal the ISA in the forthcoming session due to be held in May". The Hindraf leader, against whom an arrest warrant has been issued in Malaysia, also appealed to the Indian prime minister and the Tamil Nadu chief minister to intervene to secure the release of the Hindraf leaders.Hindraf, which claims to speak for the two million Malaysians of Indian origin, has courted controversy since last November when it held a rally that was forcibly dispersed.Five of its top leaders, who organised the rally, have been accused of trying to destabilise the state and detained for two years under the ISA.Moorthy also claimed that Hindraf was the "new voice of Malaysian Indians"."The fact that in the March 8 elections, most of the candidates of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) including (its chief) Samy Velu lost shows that Hindraf is the new voice of Malaysian Indians," he said."The election result shows people no longer believe Velu," Moorthy told IANS."We now hope that the Badawi government will now at least stop denying the marginalisation of Malaysians of Indian origin and undo the 50 years of violation of their rights," he said."We have proved people's power (Makkal Shakthi). The Muslim Malaysians and Malaysians of Chinese origin are now taking inspiration from the Hindraf movement and are demanding their rights," Moorthy said.The Hindraf leader urged the new Malyasian government to "seriously consider Hindraf's 18-point demand", and "initiate the mechanism to come out with and implement concrete plans to correct the economic and opportunity
violations against Malaysians of Indian origin". [THE END]

Saturday, March 22, 2008


1. HINDRAF through its MAKKAL SAKTI power has sent a clear message to the Government of the 50 years of marginalisation, suppression and oppression of the Indian community in Malaysia and calls upon the Government to adopt and implement all 18 demands made via a memorandum sent to the Prime Minister on 12th August 2007.

2. THIS FORUM does not believe that the 5 linked to HINDRAF detained under the ISA are a threat to National Security. The Government have maliciously linked them to terrorist organisation in December 2007, being extremist ect to justify their arrest under ISA.

THIS FORUM recognises that the Government felt threatened of losing the traditional Indian voters support as a result of the mass gathering organized by HINDRAF and show of MAKKAL SAKTI (PEOPLE POWER) ON 25TH November 2007 and hence the decision to detain under ISA.

THIS FORUM calls upon the Government to immediately release all 5 detained persons unconditionally and compensate them for their unlawful incarceration.

3. THIS FORUM reminds DAP, KEADILAN and PAS that the spirit of multi racial politics shown and advocated by HINDRAF during the General Elections are a commitment given by HINDRAF on behalf of the Malaysian Indians which is a total shift from previous voting trends. HINDRAF now calls upon the above mentioned political parties to recognize the contributions of HINDRAF by appointing a minimum of 5 HINDRAF leaders in the Senate (DEWAN NEGARA), a Deputy Menteri Besar position in each of the states in Penang, Perak and Selangor and equitable numbers of Timbalan Yang Dipertua’s and councillors from amongst HINDRAF.

4. THIS FORUM calls on the Government to recognize the legitimate existence and contributions of HINDRAF to the country and calls upon the Government to immediately approve the registration of HINDRAF as a Civil Rights and Political Pressure group/organization.

5. THIS FORUM recognises that the ISA is an obsolete act of Parliament and the detention under ISA is cruel, inhumane and against all International Human Rights standards.

THIS FORUM calls on the Prime Minister to table as the first act of Parliament, an act to repeal the ISA in the forthcoming new Parliamentary session.

6. THIS FORUM calls on the Government to heed calls made by all concerned citizens and Human Rights organisations to immediately release all detained persons unlawfully held under the ISA and compensate each individual for the loss of years and sufferings they and their families underwent.

7. THIS FORUM urges all Political Parties and the Government to accept the reality that HINDRAF IS THE NEW VOICE OF MALAYSIAN INDIANS.

8. HINDRAF declares and vows to vigorously campaign for the repeal of INTERNAL SECURITY ACT even upon the release of the 5 linked to HINDRAF.

100 days of ISA detention- nationwide forums on ISA cruelty and worldwide protest.

Dear HINDRAF supporters,

22nd March marks 100 days of the draconian arrest and detention of our brothers under the Internal Security Act.

In conjunction of this I invite HINDRAF supporters to organize nationwide forums on the 22nd March and at least 100 yagams (fire rituals) throughout the country.

Please organise the forums in public halls and seek/apply police permits early. You could invite the newly elected MP’s/ State assemblymen/ ex ISA detainees/lawyers to talk on the cruelty of ISA detentions.

A representative of HINDRAF could speak on the continued struggle of HINDRAF and our commitments for the protection of Minority Rights. At the end of the Forums kindly release 5 pigeons to mark the quest for freedom of the 5.

I also urge you to organize 100 yagams (fire rituals) throughout the country to mark this day seeking Divine Blessings for our 5 heroes detained and for the success of our 18 demands. I suggest we all collectively organise the yagams for Lord Muruga and invoke his blessings for our struggle.

The yagams could be organized in Temples/homes ect and need not be large numbers of participants. There are simple methods of conducting these yagams and you need not engage priests or “qualified persons”. All men and women with sincere heart and thoughts are qualified to organise these rituals. You may obtain simple instructions on how to organise these yagams by contacting Mr. Shanmugam on +6 019 2285124.

If you are organising a yagam please inform details and venues of your yagam by way of email to or contact HINDRAF event co-ordinator Mr. Kannan on +6012 2690024.

For all enquiries of the programs ie Forum and the yagams please do not hesitate to contact Mr Kannan on the above number.

HINDRAF welcomes the statement by Prime Minister taking collective responsibilities for the defeat and mistakes committed by the Government.

It is time the BN Government take cognisance of the wishes and sentiment if the Indian community “to chalk” the future political scenario in Malaysia. HINDRAF has played a vital role in shifting the sentiments of the Indian voters and have influenced the shift of “ political wave” of Chinese and Malay voters significantly.

There is no doubt that the Chinese and Malays do not believe the accusations levelled against HINDRAF that its demands are extreme and are linked to terrorists. The Chinese and Malays sympathise with the plight of Indians and are not perturbed into believing the propaganda perpetrated by the BN controlled media levelling HINDRAF as an extremist organization.

We wish to caution the Government that should HINDRAF continuously be ignored and suppressed by Government, it would have far reaching impact on the sentiments of all races in Malaysia for Malaysians have shown tremendous maturity in political thinking and discarded the race based politics.

Malaysians of races despised the Internal Security Act, which had served the personal agenda to ruling BN Government. If the Prime Minister is truly sincere in his statement that he had learnt and are willing to rectify the mistakes of his Government, he should release all existing ISA detainees with immediate effect without conditions and table the First Act of Parliament to repeal the Internal Security Act. This would serve as the beginning of the return of “Rakyat trust” on BN Government. The PM should also sincerely assure the Indian community that their plight would be the priority of future Government policies.

Mahathir talks nonsense - Malaysiakini interview

I refer to the interview given by ex Premier Mahathir Mohamad to Malaysiakini.
The ex premier laments that the Indians never appreciated him. Why should the Indians say thank you to a man who “threw the seeds” of hatred, marginalization and discrimination during his regime.
There is no doubt that the intake for medical seats was the worst during his tenure. And yet he had the audacity to complain that the Indians never thanked him for ultimately being doctors.

Instead of wanting to claim credit for what he doesn’t deserve, he should provide proof that he was the reason for the success of the Indians. Most Indians sold off their property and lifelong savings to educate their children and provide them a career opportunity that they deserve according to their qualifications. Unfortunately Mahathir failed to address the failure of the Government (his) to provide opportunities to good ranking students who performed well at their STPM and SPM levels. They deserved good courses at Universities. Our Country needs the best brains to serve the country and Mahathir is guilty of suppressing them (Indians and Chinese) on grounds of Racist and Fascist policies.
Despite the suppression the Indians and Chinese have made it through their own sacrifices i.e. most had to sell their only property and lifelong savings to educate their children overseas only for them to return to this country to serve. Even then, they are discriminated and various restrictions imposed on their qualifications on grounds that their Universities are not recognized when the rest of the world could do so. One cannot forget it was during Mahathir’s era that his “great education Minister” derecognized a Russian University upon visiting the said university and realizing 80% of Malaysian students there were Indians.
To cut a long story short “ Mahathir you do not deserve a thank you from the Indians – I can go on listing the number of atrocities you committed to the non Malays in this country.
Leaders like you and your successors should learn to appreciate and welcome the “best brains” available to this country for its progressive development. Education and nation building has nothing to do with Race or the Malay Special Privileges. Politicians like you and your successors are deliberately suppressing the “best brains” the country inherited for your personal agenda.

LOOK AT THE LIAR - MANIPULATIONS, BN STYLE In the Aljazeera Channel East 101 interview with Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, the Q&A touched on various election issues - press and campaigning freedom, sedition, balloting transparency, Hindraf and the Government's liberal stance. The Aljazeera media team had travelled nationwide to gauge the election campaign.Transcribed by Nisha Sabanayagam
Q. On the conduct of the electoral process. The group BERSIH has provided with us some details on what they way are anomalies in the process. Do you think the registration and the voting practices are completely clean?A. Yes, its very transparent. It is very fair. We have lost the elections before. In fact, the entire state of Kelantan is controlled by PAS. And the present state government has survived for a number of years on the basis of having one seat more than Barisan Nasional. And that one seat which they won, they won by a majority of two. If BERSIH claims that the process is not fair and is not transparent and that we have the means of exploiting the elections results, don’t tell me we cannot find three more votes to change the situation.
Q. I have a list here of at least 100 people over the age of 100 registered as voters. A. It is possible that the names of people who have died in the past, their names are still on the list. But they will not appear as voters. The opposition parties also have polling agents. They can verify those names.
Q. There have been instances where dead people have turned up to vote. A. Let us find out and let them bring it up to the Elections Commission.
Q. The DAP recently called this the most important election in Malaysia’s history because they perceive a very strong move towards greater Islamisation of what is the historically a secular state and they worry about issues which marginalise those who are not Muslims. Do they have a reason to be concerned? A. No. We have not changed the fundamental policies. But the irony is that they have some sort of political understanding with PAS, which has a much more Islamic agenda, which is they want to turn Malaysia into a theocratic Islamic state. That is an agenda we do not have. They are political partners.
Q. Does that suggest they are desperate? A. Yes, absolutely. It is just a political ploy on the part of DAP. How can you present an electorate when you cannot even agree on a common policy let alone a common symbol? They don’t even have a common symbol. So they are not really an alternative to the present Barison Nasional.
Q. On the issue of freedom of speech. There have been a number of attempted rallies in Kuala Lumpur in the past few months which have been denied permission to take place and there have been a bit unpleasantness. Why is it that the government is so cautious about public rallies? A. Because most of the demonstrations that have been organised are street demonstrations. When there are street demonstrations, there is very little control about what’s likely to happen. As you know some of the demonstrations that have been organized have resulted in some physical clashes and there is the risk (not withstanding the risk of businesses being affected) that could spark off retaliatory demonstrations by others who are opposed to some of the issues carried by these groups.
Q. On the HINDRAF rally recently. What you say demonstration they would call it a rally, with the point of trying to present a petition to the Prime Minister at Parliament. They were a rather modest crowd of 700 people and yet the force of police that turned out against them was much higher and rather immediate.. Where was the threat? A. The threat can come first of all (from) the people who are involved in this who may resort to throwing stones. That actually happened in the Batu Caves area, organised by HINDRAF. Secondly there is also the danger that other groups for example the Malays in Kampung Baru, who can get quite agitated and they may organize their demonstrations and this could lead to something very serious in terms of a multiracial society.
Q. What about the different approach to facilitate the demonstration and allow it to disperse as soon as possible? A. We leave it to the police to manage this. It is very much a police matter. We don’t actually give explicit instructions to the police. They will decide what is the best way to control the situation.
Q. The police obviously have control of the actual event on site.. The government has control over issuance of permits and acceptance for those demonstrations. A. Well, actually I have to correct you. The issuance of permits is actually decided by the police. For your in formation, in the state of Terengganu for example, in the last year, there were about 200 public rallies organized by the opposition and another 200, without permits. So there are many instances in which the police have allowed rallies to be continued despite the fact the organizers have not obtained the necessary permits from the police.
Q. The former deputy prime minister Datuk Anwar Ibrahim has complained that genuine political gathering for the purpose of disseminating information are denied permits? A. I give the example of the state of Terengganu. There were more rallies organized by the opposition and rallies that do not get police permits were actually allowed by the police and not disrupted. So in fact, there is a deal of latitude given in our society. In fact, the opposition parties have started their political rallies or campaigns ever since the last elections happened. Over a period of four years, they have been going down to the ground.
Q. Let me ask you your view of the local media. Many complaints have been made, not just against the media, but within the media itself, that they are not allowed to report on and often do not report on issues of certain significance. Do you think there is free speech in the media? A. I think it is quite open. For example, the alternative media is very open in this country.
Q. And often quite oppressed, it is not? A. No, it is not. You go through the internet, there are websites and blogs and a lot of the material there is actually very, very critical of the government. And this has been allowed. There are also papers owned by the opposition parties, for example PAS, Keadilan and DAP all have their own newspapers.
Q. So, it the government’s position they are free to write what they want? A. Of course. Except if you break the laws of the country. If what you write can be construed as seditious, then its different. There is a lot of latitude given. I tell you, the kind of things that is written on the internet, it is mind-boggling.
Q. Some of the HINDRAF leaders have been arrested with charges of sedition. Is there any intent to bring charges against these people? Do they deserve to be held? A.. The general reaction of the people have been quite positive in terms of using of the ISA because this has led to quite a de-escalation in terms of all the activities going on this country such as the street demonstrations. With some of the street demonstrations in the country, people feel that the government has been too liberal perhaps and people want the stability in this country to be upheld.
Q. A lot people say that the government has not been liberal enough?A. On the contrary, we have been very liberal in this country. - NST

Tamil Nesan (29.02.08) Misquote our Support to Anwar

Below is the explaination done by VK Regu - Makkal Sakthi Area Coordinator regarding the news in Tamil Nesan on 29.02.08.
The Tamil Nesan have written that Makkal Sakthi have no relation with ANWAR.
It was a total FALSE news as MAKKAL SAKTHI have been a strong supporter of all opposition this general election.
Mr RK Regu, Sri Ramaji and Kannan from Makkal Sakthi and HINDRAF were on the same stage with Datuk Seri Anwar, Pn Nurul Izzah Anwar, Sdr Deo Govind Karpal Singh and RPK supporting PKR on 28.02.08 at Brickfield PKR Campaign.
Makkal Sakthi is going throughout the nation to campaign for opposition in this election after 50 years of marginalization of UMNO lead government towards Malaysian Indians.

All this mislead information by BN control media are to further confuse the Indians in Malaysia.
Makkal Sakthi also pledge all the voters to uphold the AHIMSA way during the campaigning and show the People's Power thru ballot.

Msia's Anwar vows to dismantle race policies - AFP

M'sia's Anwar vows to dismantle race policies

Feb 26, 2008

KUALA LUMPUR - MALAYSIA'S opposition figurehead Anwar Ibrahim vowed on Tuesday to end race-based discrimination policies, lower fuel prices andfight corruption in a policy manifesto ahead of Mar 8 polls.Anwar, who was deputy prime minister until being sacked and jailed in 1998,said long-running policies favouring majority Malays had only benefitedcronies of the ruling United Malays National Organisation (Umno).

'The New Economic Policy has been abused to enrich the family of Umnoleaders and their cronies,' said Mr Anwar who is campaigning for theKeadilan formally led by his wife.'If you really want to deal with the issue of poverty, why can't we just say we have an affirmative action policy helping the poor and the marginalised. ''It should not be racially based.

'Malaysia has pursued an affirmative action programme for Malays andindigenous groups known as 'bumiputras' since the 1970s to close a wealthgap with the minority Chinese community.

However, it has been criticised for failing to pull a large number of Muslim Malays out of poverty, and of ignoring the minority ethnic Indian community,which is also disadvantaged.

The manifesto entitled 'A New Dawn for Malaysia,' centred on battling rising inflation, which has triggered public anger and rare public protests as theprices of food and fuel edge higher.

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has said the government cannot affordto continue spending 43.4 billion ringgit (S$19 billion) annually to subsidise essential items.

Mr Anwar, who was heir apparent in 1998 to then-premier Mahathir Mohamad,spent six years in jail on sex and corruption charges. The sex charge was overturned but the corruption count bars him from taking public office until April.His wife has said she will stand aside to make way for Mr Anwar to contesther seat in a by-election after the March polls, in a plan that could seehim return to parliament within months.Mr Anwar said Mr Abdullah was 'in denial' over the state of the economy.'Keadilan promises to lower the price of petrol ... as well as manage the prices of basic goods to ensure a consistent supply. Tolls and tariffs will also no longer be raised,' he said.

Keadilan has forged a loose alliance with two other opposition parties whohave agreed to stand just one candidate against the government in eachconstituency, avoiding damaging three-cornered contests.The opposition hopes that gripes over inflation, rising crime rates andmounting ethnic tensions will enable it to reduce the government's thumpingmajority below two-thirds for the first time in history. -- AFP

Show Hindraf 5 our gratitude

Show Hindraf 5 our gratitude
KillBill07 Feb 26, 08 4:22pm

Before you lay yourself down to sleep tonight, take a moment to think of the Hindraf 5 currently being detained under the ISA in Kamunting. Just wonder what must be going through their minds, as they lie on their beds. Without doubt, they must be missing their wives and children. Take a moment to think of their children who cannot see, hug or play with their fathers.
The Hindraf 5 must be wondering how to support their families since they are out of work. They must be thinking how to continue the struggle for the Indians in this country since their freedom has been so unjustly taken away from them. They may even wonder if the Indian Malaysians have forgotten them.
Now, take a moment to think of our prime minister, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Think of him lying on his comfortable bed in Putrajaya. Do you think he feels an iota of guilt, since he was the one who signed the ISA instructions to wrongfully separate these men from their wives and children? Think of MIC President S Samy Vellu lying on his bed after a good dinner with his family.
Do you think he feels sorry for the plight of these men, since he was the one who boldly declared to the international media that they were detained under the ISA on mere suspicions that they had terrorist links? Both of them know in their hearts that these men are innocent, but they had to selfishly put them away to safeguard their political futures.
How can we continue to allow these kinds of men to be our leaders?
The MIC was supposed to take care of the Indian community¢s interests all these years, but only after the Nov 25 Hindraf rally do you see the government taking such a keen interest in this deprived community. Million of dollars have been ¡promised¢ for Tamil schools. The chief secretary to the government has been instructed to ¡look into¢ hiring more Indians for the civil service. An Indian boy falls to his death at a school in Puchong, and Umno Youth now sends an officer to visit the family and investigate!
Would all this have taken place if not for Hindraf? If your answer is ¡no,¢ take a moment to think about where their struggles and sacrifices have landed them.
How do we repay these men who put the interests of their community above themselves and their families? How do we give back for the sacrifices they have made?
The best thing we can do is to free them. How do we do it? The ISA is the tool of this government. If this government is replaced in the next elections, the ISA will fall, and the Hindraf heroes will be freed. Therefore, if you value the sacrifices these men, their wives and their young children have made for your interests, then all you registered voters should make a commitment to vote against the Barisan Nasional on March 8, election day.
Go out in force and urge your families and friends to go with you. Just remember that every vote counts. The government has taken us for fools by promising a lot of last-minute goodies and last-minute development plans. Let us show them that we are not fools.
Most importantly, come election day, let us show Uthayakumar, Manoharan, Kenghadharan, Ganabatirau, Vasantakumar and their families that we have not, and will never forget them.

Open Letter - Appeal for a better Parliament

An Open Letter - Appeal for a better Parliament
Contributed by Yeo Yang Poh
Wednesday, 27 February 2008 10:59am

Dear Fellow Malaysians,
It is true that there are things that we Malaysians should be proud of, and be thankful for. It is equally true that many things are not well in our country. They have not been well for some time now. Matters of safety and security, price hikes, education, issues of equal opportunities and equal treatment, constriction of various forms of freedom, marginalisation of several segments of society, the failing justice system, corruption in the public sector, the rising denial syndromes, the arrogance of wrongdoers nourished by their repeated ability to get off scot-free, and the numbness of the public reaction towards misdeeds and the lack of accountability, just to describe a few.
Many of the ills that we complain about in our society are the symptoms of the underlying causes. Some of the major root causes are:
(a) epidemic corruption in a system that does little to prohibit or redress it,
(b) lack of a system of transparency and accountability,
(c) the suppression of various freedoms so as to turn a silent majority into a silenced majority, (d) a Government that is more interested in commanding than serving,
(e) a Parliament whose overwhelming majority cares more about power-consolidation than nation-building, and
(f) a weak “last bastion” in the form of a failing justice system.
Can things be allowed to go on this way?
Can we afford to do so? Should our future generations suffer the consequences of our permissiveness?It is quite obvious that we need a better Government and a better Parliament. But that will not happen if we, the citizens of Malaysia, do little more than blaming the Government and criticizing our Members of Parliament.
It is we who put our MPs in the Parliament. It is we who must take the ultimate responsibility. The buck stops at each and every one of us.
My earnest appeal to everyone is therefore as follows:
(i) discuss the need for a better Parliament and a better Government, with your family members, colleagues, friends and persons close to you;
(ii) make it a point to go and vote in the next election, and to vote for change and for betterment;(iii) discard the notion or excuse that your single vote will not matter;
(iv) discard the notion or excuse that politics is dirty and all politicians are the same, and therefore that there is no point in voting;
(v) influence and encourage as many of your family members, colleagues, friends and persons close to you as possible, to come out and vote for change and for betterment in the coming election.
It is meaningless for us to complain about our Parliamentarians and the Government, if we do not first discharge a simple but sacrosanct duty of choice.Let us all take the time to look into the beautiful but expectant eyes of our children, and of the children of many others for whom we care. The future of our nation is meant for them. But millions of them cannot vote. They put their fate in our hands. They rely on us not just for their present living and support.
They rely on us, too, to vote for a better future for them.And after discharging our duty to vote, we must continue to be vigilant, and ensure that our elected representatives account for their actions, and make good their promises.
I humbly suggest to you that change and betterment are not empty dreams, if all of us play our respective parts. I invite you, and I urge you, to answer my appeal as set out above.
Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Yeo Yang Poh
Advocate & Solicitor,& a concerned Malaysian
