DAP's P Ramasamy wants to know why the 'hooligan party' is now backing the opposition leader after being critical of him in the past.
PETALING JAYA: The Human Rights Party’s support for Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim with regard to the sex video controversy has come under attack from a Pakatan Rakyat leader.
Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy, in his Twitter posting, questioned HRP’s pro-tem secretary- general P Uthayakumar’s decision to back Anwar.
“Why is the head of a hooligan racist party supporting Anwar, wants to be mandore!!!” he said.
HRP leaders have constantly used the mandore term on Indian elected representatives from both sides of the political divide who compromise the interests of their community in exchange for positions and perks.
The yet-to-be registered political party has also been critical of Pakatan, accusing the opposition coalition of not doing enough for the Indians.
Responding to his boss, Ramasamy’s aide M Satees tweeted: “They want 15/38 la Prof…”
This was in reference to the 15 parliamentary and 38 state seats with a high number of Indian voters which HRP aims to contest in the next general election.
‘It is a matter of principle’
Defending his party’s stand, HRP information chief S Jayathas said the decision to back Anwar was based on principle.
“Anwar is victimised by Umno and is being tried in the media, similar to Hindraf when Umno accused us of having links with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE),” he told FMT.
As for the mandore allegation, he said Ramasamy, who is also DAP deputy secretary-general, should read the definition of mandore and mandorism first, which were availabe on the HRP website (see link below).
On Satees’ comment about the 15/38 plan, Jayathas said that his party will not be contesting in any seats if Pakatan lives up to its pre-2008 polls promise of addressing Indian issues.
“They can start by resolving all land issues involving Hindu temples, cemeteries and Tamil schools with a stroke of the pen because they are already in the ‘Putrajaya’ of Kedah, Penang and Selangor.”
Meanwhile, Anwar’s daughter and PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah welcomed HRP’s support for her father.
“We take comments in good faith. It is good when politicians, individuals across different vocations state a principled stance publicly,” she said.
On Monday, Uthayakumar said that he had watched the video and concluded that it was not Anwar. He also claimed that the video was designed to politically assasinate Anwar.
This morning the five Hindraf activists case came up for mention at the Selayang Magistrates Court at 9.00 a.m. In this case of the racist, fascist, supremacist, malicious and vindictive criminal prosecution by the racist UMNO Attorney General Tan Sri Gani Patail.
When HRP Vice President and Hindraf National Coordinator K. Tamil Selvam informed the Court that HRP & Hindraf Information Chief S. Jayathas was today undergoing dialysis treatment and was unable to attend court and forwarded a copy of his last dialysis treatment receipt dated 29/4/11 (see copy below), the dumb UMNO Magistrate Puan Nuru Hafizah bt Kamaruddin ordered that she wanted a medical certificate or she would issue Warrant of Arrest.
This is how the racist UMNO Malay-sian Chief Justice Tun Zaki Tun Azmi trains his learned magistrates who does not even know the difference that a dialysis patient is not a sick patient who would be issued a Medical Certificate.
To add insult to injury this dumb but arrogant Magistrate without any due course or reason raised her voice and was intimidating the five Hindraf activists as if to force them to plead guilty which she is so used to doing, and some 99% of the Indian poor accused brought before her pleading guilty though they may not be guilty as they cannot afford legal fees for a lawyer, cannot afford bail.
So these Indian poor are as good as being thrown into jail and having a criminal record when some racist UMNO policemen decide to racially profile him and arrest him.
And then the racist Malay-sian police and AG Gani Patail crow and brag that their crime solving rate is higher than that of Interpol’s.
Today’s case was postponed to a speedy hearing date on 7/6/2011 to swiftly convict these 54 Hindraf activists.
The DPP was Ching Kian Chun and the attending lawyer was Andiappan.
Karunai Nithi @ Compassionate Justice
This racist fascist, religious supremacist and malicious criminal prosecution is unprecedented and unheard of in the world over except in Malaysia and the absolute monarchy Saudi Arabia.
This is how serious UMNO is in killing off Hindraf further to Ops Padam Hindraf and so as to speedily convict these 54 Hindraf activists so as prevent them from stan
