Re : Indian Chendol seller denied licence for ten years, stall confiscated, assaulted and told to become security guard. Tip of iceberg of Indians denied licences permits, APs’ etc. But Malay muslim traders freely granted licences.

We refer to the above matter and to the newsreport in The Star today (26/9/10 at page M4). denying even Chendol stall licences for ten long years to S. Vijendren and Yuganthiran, their chendol stall confiscated, assaulted and were told to instead become security guards.

We are shocked, appalled and disgusted at this level of racist and religious supremacy practiced by the UMNO controlled government’s Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and almost all other licensing authorities nationwide and on a day to day basis.

DBKL forces them to close shop by issuing them repeated hefty compound notices. And the last straw was when Vijendran was punched in the face by a Malay-sian DBKL officer on 31st August 2010 at 1.00 a.m, his stall towed away and he being hospitalized for two (2) days to treat his swollen left cheek.

Despite a police report having been lodged as usual the Malay-sian police has taken zero action.

This is just the tip of the iceberg to even the sixth generation Malaysian born Indians being denied licences to even engage in petty trading let alone to engage in the multi billion ringgit corporations. To the direct contrary in the USA, the world’s most powerful country, even a black and bearing a muslim name and son of an immigrant from Kenya ie Barrack Hussien Obama was elected by the 90% White Christians to become the President of the USA.

UMNO has to stop this policy, practice and implementation of this level of racist and religious supremacy in One Malay-sia and stop bullying the already economically weak, poor and politically powerless Malaysian Indians.

We have received complaints of thousands of Malaysian Indians being denied even licences to do business in scrap metal, (5,000 Indians denied scrap metal licences alone nationwide) food stalls, fruit stalls, flower stalls, local council and highway rest area food and other stalls, markets stalls, pasar malam stalls etc.

Licences, permits, APs and business opportunities to export scrap metal, set up Petronas and other petrol stations, Proton and other cars outlets and service centres, KFC, McDonald, Ayamas, and other franchise opportunities, Insurance companies, banks, government tenders, contracts and projects have almost zero Malaysian Indian participation in but all in the name of One Malay-sia.

Kindly grant this Chendol seller and all other Indian petty traders and all the other Indian businesses aforesaid their due licences, permits and APs’.

Please note that the right to do business is a constitutionally enshrined right and not mercy, which DBKL and all the other UMNO licensing authorities can only regulate and not arbitrarily refuse!

Kindly revert to us accordingly.

Rights Not Mercy

Thank you,

Yours faithfully,


P. Uthayakumar
