PKR, DAP & PAS: No call for Royal Commission for 5 police murders of Indian youths, 17 year old

PKR, DAP & PAS: No call for Royal Commission for 5 police murders of Indian youths, 17 year old

One rule for Teoh Beng Hock who after intense public pressure led by PKR, DAP and PAS got a Royal commission within one week and even his body was ordered by the court to be exhumed by court and a foreign (Thai) pathologist whose qualification is not even recognized in Malaysia has no objections from even the Attorney General to examine Teoh’s body (Malay Mail 11/11/2009 at page 3).

But another rule for the hundreds of Indians who are killed in police lockups or simply shot dead by the police force especially these five Indian youths aged 24, 22, 21, 19 and especially the 17 year old juvenile. There is no Royal Commission of Inquiry called.

To add insult to injury the Federal CID chief Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin has the cheek to make a statement that the police “fired in self defence (NST 11/11/2009 at page 20 and Tamil Nesan Headlines on 11/11/2009) Why aren’t the top leaders and the 82 PKR, DAP and PAS Members of Parliament

and hundreds of State Assemblymen :-

1) Not demanding for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into these five police murders of these Indian youths (all in one transaction) as was rightly done for Teoh Beng Hock.

2) Not appointing two Selangor state government funded lawyers for each of the five (5) families as was rightly done for Teoh Beng Hock.

3) Demand the sacking of the IGP and Federal CID Chief for these police murders as was rightly done (for the MACC chiefs) in Teoh Beng Hock’s case.

4) Move and emergency motion in Parliament and the Selangor State Assembly on this police murders of Indian youths as was done for the former mufti of Perlis Dato Asri at the Selangor State Assembly today (Malaysiakini 11/11/2009)

But then for both UMNO and also PKR, DAP and PAS, when and where the victims are “merely the Indians” they won’t bother nor does it matter to them.

Championing of issue by PKR, DAP and PAS must not be majoritarian race based but must be based on the seriousness of the violations of the human rights suffered.

PKR, DAP and PAS not racist parties?

Some of them have distinguished that Teoh’s was a political murder. But then even in the case of ex politician and MIC ADUN Datuk S. Krishnasamy’s murder and Joe Fernandez’s there was pin drop silence by PKR, DAP, and PAS. Not even when the police bully the victim’s (Krishnasamy’s) son and engineer Raj Kumar by confiscating his lap top and handphone for sending e-mails and text messages addressed to Johor CPO Datuk Mohd Mokhtor Mohd Shariff” of the police protecting the suspects involved in Krishnasamy’s murder (NST 11/11/2009 at page 20)



New building for Bagan Serai Tamil school delayed by three years.80 year old SRK (T) Bukit Jalil also merely has the usual signboard but no new buildi

Letter to Prime Minister & Minister of Education dated on 11/11/2009


Re: 1) New building for Bagan Serai Tamil school delayed by three years.

2) 80 year old SRK (T) Bukit Jalil also merely has the usual signboard but no new building.

3) Political rhetoric by UMNO, PKR, DAP and PAS to solve that too on a piecemeal basis as opposed to a wholesome basis.

4) Grant land and declare all 523 Tamil schools in Malaysia as fully aided by 1/1/2010.

5) Tip of iceberg of Tamil school problems.

We refer to the above matter and to the newsreport in Malaysia Nanban front page dated 11/11/2009 and The Star Metro 10/11/2009 at page M7.

To create the impression that a new Tamil school building would be built to replace the dilapidated existing Bagan Serai Tamil school building a “wayang kulit” signboard had been put up (by UMNO) nearby just before the last general elections. There is now a jungle growth in this new Tamil school land but the new Tamil school was never built.

Despite this being a fully aided Tamil school and the parents persistent protest it suffers this fate. Why is this school building been delayed for three years now when in the 2009 Budget the sum of RM 67 Million was specifically allocated for Tamil schools. Thereafter the Cabinet Committee on Tamil schools headed by Dato Seri Najib Razak approved a further RM 50 Million and then again a further RM 50 Million totalling RM 100 Million in the First and Secound Economic Stimulas packages respectively but from which not a single cent filtered down to any of these 523 Tamil schools in the pretext that the cost of Tamil school building materials having gone up (The Star 30/09/2009). Assuming even if the said price went up by double, the said RM 100 Million could have been utilized to build and/or upgrade at least half the number of the originally intended Tamil schools. Why was this not done?

Again for the 2010 Budget RM 30 Billion was allocated for 80 new schools, 1,100 additional blocks and 347 school replacement projects, to refurbish and upgrade schools in the RM 191.5 Billion Budget. But why zero flows down to these Tamil schools.

This is the very same problem with the SJK (T) Bukit Jalil which was promised RM 2 Million by the Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister in April 2009 for the new school annexe building which would have additional facilities. “There is now a signboard for a proposed SJK (T) Bukit Jalil Tambahan. “This school even has to beg for a school field while others have to beg for chairs tables and books. (Refer The Star Metro 10/11/2009 at page M7).

This is just the very tip of the iceberg of the very basic and elementary problems in almost all of the 523 Tamil schools in your goodselves One Malaysia. This is hardly heard of in almost all Malay or Chinese schools.

We hereby once again call upon the UMNO controlled Malaysian government to grand land and declare all 523 Tamil schools as fully aided government schools with effect from the next academic year beginning 1/1/2010.

Thank you,

Your faithfully,



Secretary General (pro-tem).
