On 10/1/11 a breakthrough meeting was held between the 8 member HRP/Hindraf delegation led by P. Uthayakumar and Mr. Avinash Rai Khanna, BJP Senior Member of Parliament (MPCRS) and Punjab BJP Chief who is also a lawyer at the BJP Human Rights Cell at the BJP Headquarters at No. 11 Asoka Road, New Delhi. Also present at the one and a half hour meeting was Dr. Nirmal Singh the BJP Chief for Kashmir, Mr. Sudhir Aggarwal the BJP Human Rights Cell Chief and Supreme Court of Indian Advocate and finally joined in by Mr. Vijay Goel the Secretary General of BJP and four other Senior BJP officials. This meeting was facilitated by Mr. Vivek Goyal, Additional Advocate, Punjab and Advocate, Supreme Court of Indian and a Hindraf sympathizer. P. Uthayakumar began by briefing the BJP party on the Malaysian Indian Minority & Human Rights Violations Annual Report 2010. The BJP party were shocked at the level of atrocities befalling on the Malaysian Indian poor as they have otherwise only known of Malaysia as a prosperous and fair country with the world’s tallest Twin Towers. M.P. Mr. Avinash said that he is agreeable in principle to our proposed IPCMI but would have to confer with Lok Sabha Parliamentary Opposition Leader Madam Sushma Suvaraj BJP Supremo Lal Krishna Advani and the BJP Leader in charge of the External Cell. In the interim Mr. Avinash had agreed to raise the serious Human Rights violations against the poor Malaysian Indians in particular on the 450,000 4th, 5th and 6th generation poor Malaysian Indians made stateless, forced conversions to Islam, Malaysian Indians denied upward mobility opportunities, government scholarships. We also pointed the exported UMNO racism and religious extremism to Indian soil ie medical seats in 14 medical colleges in India for almost all malay muslim Mara and JPA scholarships. For example P. Uthayakumar pointed out that at page 56 of the Malaysian Indian Minority & Human Rights Violations Annual Report 2010 “The first batch of University Science Malaysia’s International medical programme students will be starting their classes in September 2010 in Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Belgaum, Karnataka India. Out of the 74 students, only one (1.35%) medical student was Indian, Abilasha Nair, 19, from Masai, Johor. (News Straits Times 6.7.2010, page 27)” were also raised Mr. Avinash promised to raise these issues at the upcoming session of the Rajha Sabha in March 2011. On a query as to whether there are Indian elected MP’s in Malaysia P. Uthayakumar explained that there are 11 ethnic Indian MP’s in PKR, DAP and PAS (P.R) and a further 4 from MIC/BN. But these 15 Indian mandore MPs’ refuse to raise even 1% of the atrocities against the Malaysian Indian poor as per the Malaysian Indian Minority & Human Rights Violations Annual Report 2010 as they merely choose to play to up to the 90% Malay and Chinese voter gallery in their constituencies. And the same with the rest of the 76 PKR, DAP and PAS Opposition MPs’. Thus we having to resort to IPCMI until HRP’s Project 15/38 ie winning in 15 Parliamentary and 38 state seats in the highly anticipated March 2011 General Elections. P. Uthayakumar
