Indians have to torch themselves and beg to death to stop Hindu temple demolishment in PKR, DAP and PAS Selangor and UMNO One Malay-sia

In over the last 53 years UMNO had been systematically “ethnically cleansing” and demolishing thousands of Hindu temples nationwide.

When I was a boy ( 35 years ago ) I remember an Indian actor from Chennai visiting Malaysia, interviewed on radio, that he was impressed to see so many Hindu temples that dotted the Malaysian landscape and that it reminded him of India. And he quoted the Tamil Proverb “Never live in an village that does not have a temple.

That was some 35 years ago. No more now through.

And today Chakra Gunasegaran had to set himself ablaze and kill himself ablaze (see Tamil Nesan headlines 1/12/10 ) and beg the PKR, DAP and PAS state government to stop the demolishment of his Hindu temple.

Where is the change? Worse still such self immolation has never happened even during the 50 year old rule of Selangor by the UMNO / BN regime. PKR, DAP and their Indian mandores should ask themselves why. Perhaps they are missing something?

PKR, DAP and PAS ruling Selangor, Penang and Kedah have 100 % powers to grant land to all Hindu temples, Hindu cemetaries, and the 180 Tamil schools which will qualify all these 180 Tamil schools in these three states to become fully financially aided schools, and out of it’s current cowshed like dilapidated conditions in these three states and offer a permanent solution while they are still in power because if UMNO/BN comes back to power there is no way there are going to do it. But they have blatantly refused to do so simply because they fear losing the “Malay muslim” votes. But never mind the Indians kena nyaya.

90 % of the minority Indians voted for PKR, DAP and Pas and for the first time in 50 years the UMNO/ BN regime lost their two thirds majority in Parliament and won in five new states including the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.

But PKR, DAP and PAS after getting what they had wanted ie the bulk and chunk of the Indian votes hardly made a difference to their lives of the Indian poor. They continued with the 50 year old UMNO neo colonialising the Indian poor by using their Indian mandores to offer temporary and piece meal solutions like dishing out hampers, petty cash for Hindu temples, Tamil schools cemeteries or kosong promises of land here or land there and getting the same widely covered in the three Tamil dailes.

PKR, DAP and PAS would do everything else on an ad hoc and a temporary solution, but not grant a permanent solution like granting land to all Hindu temples, Hindu cemeteries, Tamil schools and Indian villages and settlements.

Especially with no cost of RM to them, only land is to be granted. One stroke of the MB/CM’s pen and a permanent solution to this 53 year old out standing problem.

But why not while they are still in power playing to the 60 % Malay muslim voters is more important than the Indians from now onwards having to burn themselves to death so that their temples, cemeteries, Tamil schools, Indian villages and settlements are not demolished and destroyed.

May Chakra Gunasekara’s soul rest in peace his sacrifice in defence of his Hindu temple from destruction.It is the first of it’s kind in Malaysia and has created history.

Only HRP’s project 15/38 will have some hope of ending these Indian poor misery.

Sunway Indians fed up with both BN and PR

By B Nantha Kumar - Free Malaysia Today

PETALING JAYA: Indians living in Kampung Lindungan, Sunway, are disappointed that the Pakatan Rakyat administration in Shah Alam is no better than its predecessor was when it comes to fulfilling promises.

They are getting tired of waiting for the Seaport Tamil school to be built and may boycott the next general election, according to a resident who identified himself only as Rajan.

The issue has been raging for close to two decades.

Soon after Pakatan ousted BN in 2008, Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim and state executive councillor Dr Xavier Jeyakumar promised that the state would provide a two-acre site for the school. “But nothing has been issued in writing,” Rajan said.

According to him, about 10,000 Indians are resident in Kampung Lindungan, formerly known as Desa Mentari.

"We are tired of hearing promises from BN and Pakatan Rakyat on the school issue,” he said. “I hope they realise that the general election will be soon and we are very very unhappy."

In 1995, after several years of pressure from the locals, the then BN government agreed to allocate seven acres in Mentari Court for the construction of a cluster of schools, including one with Tamil as the medium of instruction.

However, the state subsequently approved plans to build medium-cost apartments instead at the location.

Following an uproar, the government allocated another site in Desa Mentari for the schools. This time the land size would be 7.3 acres. However, the cluster would not include a Tamil school. The proposal was to have it isolated to a different site of a little under one acre.

The Indians waited, but nothing materialised despite appeals to MIC big shots in Kelana Jaya and Subang.

Given to mosque

In 2006, the community received what seemed like a reprieve when newly minted Kelana Jaya MIC chief N Sinnasamy said the government was considering the matter.

Soon, however, Menteri Besar Mohd Khir Toyo declared that MIC had “generously” given up half of the allocated land for a mosque.

Furious residents then took up the matter with the Kelana Jaya representative in the state assembly, Seripah Noli Syed Hussin, who assured them that the land still belonged to the school and that Khir’s announcement was the result of a misunderstanding.

In the run-up to the 12th general election, MIC President S Samy Vellu visited the area and announced that he had convinced the state to allocate 1.8 acres for the school.

But it was all just talk, Rajan said, adding that the situation had not changed since the Pakatan victory in Selangor.

"The state government has not even attempted to build new schools,” he said.

"Both governments have failed the residents of Desa Mentari. All our requests have fallen on deaf ears.

"All they want is money, position and our votes.”
