Uthayakumar’s address in Pravasi Bharathiya Divas Meeting


Uthayakumar Ponnusamy from Malaysia. The great Indian leaders, the Prime Minister, and the external Affairs Minister all spoke on business, social and cultural issues concerning the Indian Diasporas. We regret that the Human rights issues of Indians especially in Malaysia, where the Indians are being denied their birth certificate and the citizenship even for the fourth and fifth generation Malaysian Indians.

Hindu temples, Hindu crematorium and Indian Tradisional Villages indiscriminately demolished.

Deserving Indian students denied University entry or tertiary education scholarships and also denied skills training simply because they are Indians. 95% of deaths in police custody and shot dead by Malay Muslim police are Indians. 70% of Indians in Malaysia are categorized as poor or hardcore poor because they have been excluded from the mainstream development of Malaysia.

Further and better particulars of the discriminations of Malaysian Indians are as per our ‘Malaysian Indian Minority & Human Rights Violations Annual Report 2009 Malay-sia Truly Racist’

For next year’s Pravasi Barathiya Divas conference we propose a human rights segment. In the interim we ask the government of India to assign a senior human rights officer at Indian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur to monitor the above matter and report it to New Delhi and raise this matter with the Malaysian government the human rights violations as in our the-malaysian-indian-minority-human-rights-violations-annual-report-20091 by Hindraf and HRP
