HINDRAF leader P Waythamoorthy met Malaysian Indians at Manor Park, London today to explain their stand. The meeting was attended by more than 50 Malaysian Indians residing in the United Kingdom.
It was revealed that a leaflet protest would be distributed to everyone at Trafalgar Square sometime this coming week to create an awareness that Malaysian Indians have been marginalised in Malaysia after more than 50 years of Independence. It is hoped that the Malaysian government will immediately look into the plights of the Indian community and give whatever assistance to uplift their deplorable state currently faced by this community.
Malaysian Indians are now more united in this battle for fairness and if the ruling BarisanNasional were to ignore their claims, the BarisanNasional will lose the coming polls expected sometime next year since the Indian votes are crucial for the coalition party
The rally's estimated to be 100 000 people gathered outside the Petronas Twin Towers at midnight, early Sunday morning.At least 240 people were detained, but half of them were later released. One day before the rally, police arrested three HINDRAF lawyers, P. Uthayakumar, P. Waytha Moorthy and V. Ganabatirau for sedition charges. Uthayakumar and Ganabatirau posted bail of 800 Malaysian ringgits each, but Waytha Moorthy refused bail as a sign of protest.
