Within one hour of HRP being notified and instructed to act in this ruthless and brutal police murder of a 17 year old Indian muslim boy Mohamad Johari Abu Bakar and the Press Conference notice being faxed out on 14/5/11 at 1.30 p.m, the family was even told to leave the Serdang Hospital mortuary and not to take our phone calls, we believe from the police Special Branch operatives. We were forced to back off.
In the laws of any country including dictatorships and autocratic regimes, a man is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Why can’t the racist UMNO Polis Raja Di Malay-sia capture this young boy and prosecuted him in a Court of law?
Had his name been Aminulrasyid or Teoh Beng Hock, the bi-racial PKR, DAP, PAS, Bar Council, NGOs, the print and electronic and the Malay-sian civil society would have turned it this into a national issue and cried real hard and loud for Justice.
But as the victim is merely a member of a powerless, soft target and vulnerable Indian community, he kena nyaya. Unlike in the western civil societies the politically and economically powerful Malay and Chinese leaders’ silence speaks volumes of their racism by omission.

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.
