UNITEN: 1, 400 graduated, 0.5% only seven Indians

1, 400 final year students graduated from University Tenaga Nasional (Uniten) (UM 4/2/2010 at page 27)

As usual the Indians are almost all excluded. We estimate that only about 0.5% or about 7 students out of 1, 400 who graduated from Uniten.

This our believe is further enhanced because the racist religious extremist and supremacist Malay-sian UMNO regime would never make public this Uniten or any other Public University places intake or at least the names published in the Ministry of Higher Education and the respective Universities Websites.

Article 12 of the Federal Constitution specifically states “ Rights in respect of education”.

(1) Without prejudice to the generality of Article 8, there shall be no discrimination against any citizen on the grounds only of religion, race, descent or place of birth -

a) In the administration of any educational institution maintained by a public authority, and, in particular, the admission of pupils or students or the payment of fees; or

b) In providing out of the funds of a public authority financial aid for the maintenance or education of pupils or students in any educational institution (whether or not maintained by a public authority and whether within or outside the Federation)

But UMNO does not abide by the Federal Constitution and the Law. Instead the ethnic minority Indian Human Rights Lawyer P. Uthayakumar who questioned these violations of the law and the Federal Constitution is detained under the ISA for 514 days and also charged for Sedition to put him in jail for another 3 years.
