I write as the Chair of HINDRAF, an NGO, that took the people to the street on November 25, 2007 to fight for their rights and liberty that eventually was instrumental for the Malaysian authoritarian Government to lose several states to the opposition in the elections on March 8th 2008 see linkhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HINDRAF
Recently the Malaysian government against the interest of public had included a novel “Interlok” that contains racial slurs against the Ethnic Indians and Chinese as a compulsory literature for 16 years old school goers. Seehttp://www.malaysiakini.com/news/155901
The People need to rise and revolt without fear or favor against facist governments and such esteemed media such as you need to provide the coverage to enhance the battle for rights and liberty of the human kind.
The rally's estimated to be 100 000 people gathered outside the Petronas Twin Towers at midnight, early Sunday morning.At least 240 people were detained, but half of them were later released. One day before the rally, police arrested three HINDRAF lawyers, P. Uthayakumar, P. Waytha Moorthy and V. Ganabatirau for sedition charges. Uthayakumar and Ganabatirau posted bail of 800 Malaysian ringgits each, but Waytha Moorthy refused bail as a sign of protest.
