Re: Invitation to join us in the March Against Institutionalized Racism Exercised By UNMO
I am writing to you for you to join hand with us for the Peoples’ march on February 27, 2011 which is against racism practiced by UMNO.
As you may be aware, our recent car convoy activity yesterday was clamped down by the police with the arrest of numerous key HINDRAF activists/supporters across Malaysia. However this has not hindered the spirit of the HINDRAF members and we are geared up for the march.
Although we may differ in our opinions and approach, but I believe that our common objectives are the same to ensure human rights & liberty is prevailed for all Malaysian in equality.
The upheaval that we had witnessed in Tunisia and Egypt is the unity of the people irrespective of their race or religion battling for humanity to sustain against oppressive and suppressive governments similar to UMNO.
The audacity of the government to move ahead with the INTERLOK novel shows their arrogance and their effort to enhance racism and segregation within its society similar to BTN.
The criticism and the demand to withdraw Interlok is not purely an Indian issue but rather to curtail racism as a whole for the nation irrespective whether it is an Indian issue or not.
I trust as a seasoned and genuine leader of the nation, you do understand the insensitivity and racism that is created towards a particular segment of the society and will be glad if you can join us on February 27, 2011 to ensure that Malaysian society should not be cowed by such outright racism practiced by UMNO and its mandores.
