First and foremost let us pray for Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and her three friends for their souls to attain eternal peace. It is indeed sad this incident took place during the holy month for the muslims. The whole nation regardless of ethnics is grieved by these gruesome murders. While police are conducting investigations, certain quarters of them are using these gruesome murders to generate racial tension among Malaysians.

It is indeed poignant to see media like Utusan Malaysia (14/09/10) which carried headline news which linked one of those detained who is a lawyer by profession as giving legal aid to Hindraf. This statement is rather seditious and could affect racial harmony and disunity among Indians and Malays in this country. The question here is, the police are not even over and done with their investigations, so how did Utusan Malaysia get a hold of this information? Main stream media like Utusan Malaysia should play an important role on emphasizing racial harmony and unity among Malaysians. They should pursue stringent journalism ethics by not publishing seditious and fictional statements such as above.

As for the main stream Media Utusan Malaysia, they are not first timers in these kind of issue. Numerous police reports were lodged against them but were fruitless. Another question here, are the relevant authorities blind or blind folded for certain reason? There are also other blogs on the internet which is aggravating racial disunity using this grisly occurrence. Their motives are clear and it is obvious that these irresponsible people are all out to construct racial pressure among Malaysians. It’s time the relevant establishment steps in and put an end to this state of affairs. These Internet blogs and main stream media should be given ruthless punishment.

Malaysians out there please think outside the box and don’t craft anymore racial disharmonies as lot of damages have been done by immature selfless people and organizations in the name of race and religion which has turned the nation into disarray. Let us give moral support to the families of the deceased and let justice triumph

Umno at odds with race-tolerant world, says HRP

By Athi Shankar - Free Malaysia Today

KUALA LUMPUR: The Human Rights Party (HRP) today congratulated Malaysia-born Penny Wong for her appointment as Australia’s new finance minister and used the occasion to denounce the current Malaysian government as racist and out of tune with the times.
HRP pro-tem secretary-general P Uthayakumar said Wong’s appointment yesterday to the Australian cabinet was part of a global tide against racial and religious prejudice.

“Sadly, though, this will never happen in our 1Malaysia,” he said.

“The whole world is now going against racist and religious supremacy, except our Umno-ruled 1Malaysia.”

Uthayakumar, a former ISA detainee, is also the legal advisor for Hindraf Makkal Sakti.

He also criticised Pakatan Rakyat parties for similarly going against the global trend.

He said Malaysia was not only bucking current trends but also going against its own admirable history of appointing officials without reference to their racial or religious backgrounds.

He recalled that the first minister of education of the yet-to-be-independent Malaya in 1955 was Clough Thuraisangam and that in post-independence Malaya the first two finance ministers were Tan Cheng Lock and Tun Tan Siew Sin, the first navy chief was Rear Admiral K Thanabalasingam, the first chief justice was CS Gill and the first governor of Malacca was Leong Yew Koh.

“And the list goes on if one were to refresh one’s memory on the number non-Malay or non-Muslim CPOs, OCPDs, district officers and council mayors,” he said.

“This cannot happen again in Umno’s 1Malaysia.”

To illustrate his assertion that the rest of the world was moving away from racial and religious prejudice, he mentioned, among other personalities, former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori, former US secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, former Tamil Nadu governor Fatima Beevi, former Indian presidents Zakir Hussin and APJ Abdul Kalam and several Singapore presidents and foreign ministers.

“But most intriguing is that the current president of the world’s most powerful nation, the United States, is a black with a Muslim name,” he added.

He alleged that in contemporary Malaysia “even sixth-generation Malaysia-born Indians could only dream” of becoming national school headmasters, postmasters, district officers or “even assistant district officers”.

Turning his ire on Pakatan Rakyat, he said “Pakatan Indian exco mandores in Selangor, Penang, Kedah and previously Perak” all held only the minor portfolios such as welfare, labour and community activities.

“Why don’t Pakatan governments give them more significant local government, finance or land portfolios even when they qualify?”

He blasted Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for not elevating the highly qualified political scientist P Ramasamy to the post of Deputy Chief Minister 1 instead of maintaining him as Deputy Chief Minister 2.

He charged that Lim did not promote Ramasamy when Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin resigned in April last year because “he was merely a politically powerless ethnic minority Indian”.

KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar began his first day in office yesterday with a series of meetings with senior officers. (NST 14/09/10).

Looks like the new top cop in our nation has officially started his duties promising to combat crimes...bla, bla, bla.....just like the other top cops who spoke on their first day of their duty but what about Tan Sri Ismail Omar? Will he be sincere towards his duties...?? To safe guard the nation's law and order, to fight corruption within the forces, to combat abuse of power by his officers and the most talked about lately, the interference of third parties concerning police duties?

 I am sure Tan Sri Ismail has plans and answers for all these questions above. Every Malaysians like me will be wondering what is he going to do about this. And, during media interviews pertaining on going crisis, is he going to answer the same way as the former, The Great Tan Sri  Musa Hassan answers....:"Do Not Speculate, Let Us Investigate" and after someone is shot dead by the police, the same stereotype answers from him " My Men were Following Them, Upon Knowing It, They (the suspected criminals) Fired A Few Shots Forcing My Men To Open Fire At Them."

As for me, I wonder what are his actions going to be on the allegations by his former boss on "Interference Of Third Parties". Is he going to dig up old files and start investigations or wait for the former to lodge an official complain about this? Whatever his actions going to be it should clear the  doubts of all Malaysians who will be magnifying his actions from now.

Now, Lets look at the image of our Polis Diraja Malaysia. It doesn't really portray an image of what it should be. There was a spree of  deaths in custody and unwanted shootings lately. How is he going to change it?  Is he going to hold a Royal Commission or at least an internal enquiry on all those police personnel involved?
There are a lot of issues to be looked into by the new Top Cop.

So, Malaysians of all ethnics, let us wait patiently for our answers. And then again, "Do Not Speculate, Lets wait And See".

Dear Sirs,
RE: Suspend Racist and religious supremacist UMNO Utusan Malay-sia for maliciously implicating Hindraf lawyers in murder of Susilowati.

We refer to the above matter and to the Utusan Malay-sia headlines amongst others “Siasatan juga mendapati Datuk itu (an Indian lawyer) pernah memberi bantuan guaman kepada Pertubuhan haram Hindraf dan menjadi ahli seumur hidup sebuah parti politik”.
This statement is a completely untrue, false, malicious and a Seditious statement calculated to tarnish Hindraf, cause disunity among the peaceful Indian and Malay communities in Malaysia and to cause racial disharmony.
Hindraf categorically denies that the lawyer/s implicated in the murder of Susilawati has ever represented Hindraf or any of it’s supporters or had rendered legal assistance to Hindraf at any material time. And neither do we know them or had ever known them.
This is not the first time but this UMNO linked Utusan Malay-sia has repeatedly done this especially during the period immediately before and after the 25th November 2007 Hindraf Rally.
We hereby call upon your goodselves further to Article 8 of the Federal Constitution (Equality before the law) to stop this UMNO and Utusan Malay-sia racist and religions supremacist agenda and forthwith suspend Utusan Malaysia like what your goodselves had done to Makkal Osai at least on two occasions
within a space of about six (6) months or so in 2008 and previously to Tamil Malar a Tamil daily and various other publications.
End the UMNO racist and religious agenda in One Malay-sia.
Kindly revert to us accordingly.
Thank you.
Your faithfully,
P. Uthayakumar

Finally, Mahathir concedes he screwed the merit system

JB03_170508_MAHATHIRSambu lingam, via e-mail - free Malaysia Today

Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad in a statement (FMT Sept 4, 2010) finally admitted that he and the Umno government intentionally discriminated against innocent non Bumiputra students by denying their educational rights as enshrined in the Constitution.

He said: "If we use the merit system , half of the university students (Bumiputeras) don't qualify..."

What one can gather from his statement is that the education system over the past 53 years has failed to produce Bumiputera students to meet the set requirement by Umno's own higher educational qualification merits.

Despite the billions spend to improve the educational achievements among Bumiputeras, citizens of this country are now been told by this longest serving Malaysian Prime Minister that Bumiputera students in Malaysia can only survive upon discrimination against their fellow non Bumi students. What a shame!

The former Prime Minister also revealed the truth on why local public universities are constantly dropping in international standard ratings. He admitted that half of the undergraduates did not qualify for entry into universities but were nevertheless granted places merely on race considerations.

I wonder how he justifies such brutal educational injustices. The moment a government tolerates such discrimination, it is actually planning to fail the country and its citizens over the years to come.

By implementing this racist based policies, thousands of fully qualified non Bumiputera students are cruelly denied entry into matriculation courses , local public universities intakes as well the PSD scholarships.

To summarise Mahathir's statement, he as the former prime minister and those in power ruling this country today clearly do not implement meritocracy in local university intakes, half of our university students are actually non qualifiers for higher education.

Fully qualified non Bumiputera students are oppressed and suppressed by the implementation of racially biased educational discrimination. The Umno-led Barisan Nasional government over the past 40 years have conveniently violated article 8 and 12 of Federal Constitution.
