HUMAN RIGHTS PARTY (HRP) is a multi racial party that would carry on with the Hindraf Makkal Sakthi’s 18 point demands dated 12/08/2007 and in particular Article 8 (Equality before the law) Article 12 (1) (b) (no discrimination) and Article 153(1) (legitimate interests of other communities) of the Federal Constitution. Our main thrust is to be the focus group in putting the Malaysian Indians back onto the National mainstream development of
We are not going to be the typical political party ‘playing politics’ and working towards one’s own personal and selfish interest. For us Human Rights, Social Justice, People and Public Interest, comes first above all else. We are more of political activists and political workers rather than politicians who only care about winning electorate seats and forming Governments at the expense of the People and their Rights. We would be moving on to use this political platform vide the Human Rights Party (HRP) to further our 18 years struggle in championing and upholding fundamental Human Rights in Malaysia.
Much has been written especially in the mainstream media that the field for an Indian based political party is crowded for a community of a mere two million Malaysian Indian. But the fact remains that we are the first and only Indian based multi racial political party which is in the opposition and which is not aligned to UMNO/BN.
A book titled ‘Malaysian Indian political empowerment strategy- the way forward’ written by P. Uthayakumar during his 514 days of imprisonment under the ISA without charge, trial or conviction in an open court of law would also be released on 19/07/2009.
