Will The Govt Be Able To Lift Gloom Off Malaysian Indians?
By S. Retna

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 30 (Bernama) -- Last Thursday, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak visited Brickfields, an area inhabited mostly by Malaysians of Indian descent, to launch the Deepavali carnival organised by the Ministry of Federal Territories.

The opening event attracted some 2,000 people and it seemed like a normal affair but Najib, who has been picked to succeed Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in March next year, seized the opportunity to assure the 1.9 million Malaysian Indians in the country that their woes would receive due attention from the government.

Najib also announced the setting up of a committee to look into the issue of the "paperless" segment of the community, who neither have a birth certificate nor a Malaysian identity card or MyKad.

He also promised that the Barisan Nasional (BN) government would look into issues affecting the Indian community.

While his speech was greeted by loud applause from the crowd, an event of a different nature was unfolding in front of the Prime Minister's Office complex in Putrajaya, the federal administrative capital.

Ten people, who had called themselves "Concerned Indians", were arrested when they wanted to hand over a memorandum to the Prime Minister's Office seeking the release of five leaders from the so-called Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf), a loose coalition of people which has been declared an unlawful organisation. The 10 were arrested under Section 48 of the Societies Act for acting on behalf of an unlawful society.

News of the arrest only reached most of the Indian community the next day through newspapers and the efforts of Najib to seek their backing of the BN the previous day seemed to have gone to waste although the mainstream media gave prominence to what he had promised in their front pages.

Over the last 18 months, the Indian community has been rather vociferous in asking for more action by the government in terms of improving its delivery system, more Indians to be recruited into the government service, more business opportunities, an increase in their equity participation so that Malaysian Indians can be on par with the other races in the country.

The community, including the Malaysian Indian Congress or MIC, which is the Indian communitys representative party in the BN, has also asked the government to release the five Hindraf leaders held under the Internal Security Act (ISA) after the quintet had organised a massive rally in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 26 last year to demand the rights of minority Indians although some of their demands seemed outrageous.

Although Hindraf had, since its inception, done little to assist Malaysian Indians in the real sense, one cannot deny the fact that its voicing out of the concerns of the Indian community proved to be the trigger for it to receive such huge support from like-minded Malaysian Indians.

This support played a pivotal role in diverting the majority of Indian votes, which had traditionally gone to the ruling coalition, to the Opposition in the March 8 general election.

In the elections, the BN lost its two-third majority in Parliament besides losing four other states -- Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor -- to add to Kelantan which was already in the hands of the Opposition.

The government finally banned Hindraf on Oct 15, just 12 days before Malaysian Hindus celebrated Deepavali.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar, in declaring the organisation illegal, said his ministry was satisfied with facts and evidence that showed that Hindraf had been and was being used for unlawful purposes and posed a threat to public order.

Some see the move as the government's retaliation against some Hindraf hardliners, numbering about 200, who had gone to the Muslim Cabinet ministers Hari Raya open house at the Putra World Trade Centre on Oct 1 and created a ruckus there.

But some also see the decision to ban the movement as counter-productive as banning such a movement would force the sympathisers to go underground and operate under the guise of other organisations.

Security experts have said that banning such movements would only increase the security threat, especially when the movement comprises many factions and one group might just take things a step further by linking with terrorist groups abroad.

Against this backdrop, how is the government, especially Najib, going to entice the Indian community to support the BN? Many are watching with great interest.

Although MIC leaders had openly wanted the government to implement policies and set up funds to boost Malaysian Indians economically, there is a school of thought that any action will never take root unless the core issues of Hindrafs more practical demands are resolved.

An MIC leader, who declined to be named, feels that any government action taken against Hindraf may be construed as "an action against the community".

"Whenever they (the government) take drastic action against this group, the more the community moves away from us (MIC). The government should adopt a more consultative approach instead of the confrontational stance. No matter what, we need Indians and they should not be sidelined," he said.

So, where can the government start to prove to Indians that it has their interests and welfare at heart?

For starters, a top MIC leader said, it would be a good gesture on the part of the government to free the Hindraf Five -- P. Uthayakumar, M. Manoharan, R. Kenghadharan, V. Ganabatirau and T. Vasantha Kumar -- now languishing in the Kamunting Detention Camp in Perak.

There was speculation that they would be released before Deepavali, but that has not happened.

However, it is still not too late for the government to make the aftermath of this years Festival of Lights even brighter for Malaysian Indians in this auspicious Hindu month of Kartika.

Indian Today - NOT to Marginalization
by {
JP } Malaysiakini - for Indian today
Since I still didn't updated on any news about to release the Indian whom been detained under ISA for long period - and those locked up recently, I am really upset and sympathy to these minority and under marginalization group !

When my buddy house robbed by an Indian gang past few years back, I was totally seeing prejudice to them. Well, you might said that I am a racist !

When you walk down to street underground world now, who are the big gang in violent mostly ?
(you won't see much more Chinese gangster with numbering now, most of them are syndicate corporaterization - they won't do the frontline job anymore !)

Who should be responsible to this trend ?

Why these Indian turn to be underground ?

Chinese proverb "If we grow hair, who want to be BOTAK (bald) ? !!"

Fortunately, we are still seeing many of the Indian are bearing hardships and work hard like Spartan to strive for their best in creating better life;
working night and day just for such little penny in saving for sending their children to higher education!

That's why we are having Indian lawyer to defend the justice and we are having Indian Doctor to cure sick !

Happy Deepavali to all Malaysian.

P/S : Heartfully wish to see they are going home to celebrate this great day with their family !

MCA NO. 2 Now Eyes On Minister Post

Longer wait for MCA
By Shannon Teoh

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 29 - The unrest in MCA over the party's Cabinet representation will continue for another fortnight.

This is because the party's newly central committee is not likely to meet until mid-November due to the travel schedule of MCA president Datuk Ong Tee Keat.

By then it will have been one month since tightly-contested party polls saw Ong voted in as president and Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek overcome a sex scandal to win the deputy presidency.

In winning the party No 2 job, Dr Chua will expect to be appointed a minister, but his defeated rival Datuk Ong Ka Chuan is said to be still angling to be retained as a minister.

His brother Datuk Ong Ka Ting, the previous MCA president who backed Tee Keat in the recent elections, is lobbying for him to be also retained as the party secretary-general.

Caught in the middle of the tussle, Tee Keat has so far shown his indecisiveness by delaying the central committee meeting to discuss party appointments.

Now, because of work commitments, the decision will be delayed further.

Tee Keat is currently in Toulouse, France with Air Asia as part of his duties as Transport Minister and will next week be in Manila for a summit between Asean transport ministers.

"He will only have a couple of days before Manila," one of his staffers told The Malaysian Insider.

In the meantime, speculation over the appointment of a party secretary-general, state liaison chiefs as well as a likely Cabinet reshuffle will continue despite Tee Keat having called for patience while he gets "feedback from various quarters."

The polls saw former Health Minister Dr Chua beating Housing and Local Government Minister Ka Chuan to the deputy president's post while Deputy Home Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung and Deputy Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Teng Boon Soon also failed to be elected vice-president and central committee member respectively.

Dr Chua has refused to comment on whether he will return to the Cabinet and has gone so far as to put his blog on hiatus while awaiting the central committee meeting. Speaking to The Malaysian Insider, he said he himself did not know when the meeting would be and would "play the waiting game" for now.

As Dr Chua did not contest in the March 8 general elections, he would need to be appointed as Senator to be part of the Cabinet.

Failure to do so would "divide the party" insists grassroots leader Datuk Theng Book who is Puchong division deputy chairman.

Theng, who led Save MCA, a group that pushed for former president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting to step down, said that the only excuse that could be given for Dr Chua not to be returned to Cabinet would be that there are no more vacancies in the Senate or that Barisan Nasional
could not accept the scandalised leader - both of which would still cause a rift in MCA.

Dr Chua had resigned all political posts after the revelation of a secretly recorded sex video clip in January.

However, if Dr Chua is left outside the Cabinet, it may free him to be more vocal and apply more pressure on Tee Keat with regards to issues.

As president and a Cabinet member, Tee Keat will be expected by BN to take a united BN stand.

Meanwhile, rumours still abound that Ka Chuan could be returned as secretary-general but most observers say that having been rejected by the party in the No 2 race, it would not be a wise move for Tee Keat.

Instead vice-president Datuk Liow Tiong Lai's name has been bandied about as a possible secretary-general. It would be a strange move for a vice-president and hence, would only solidify the idea that former deputy president Tan Sri Chan Kong Choy, said to have endorsed Liow in the party polls, is still wielding a strong influence in the party.

S'gor Assembly Approves Motion To Censure Khir Toyo

SHAH ALAM, Oct 29 (Bernama) -- The Selangor State Assembly which ended its sitting today, approved a motion to censure Sungai Panjang assemblyman Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo for making false statements about Kinrara assemblywoman Teresa Kok.

The motion proposed by Ng Suee Lim (DAP-Sekinchan) said the former Selangor Menteri Besar (Khir) had made statements that Kok, who is a also a state senior executive councillor, had led protests over the volume of the azan (Muslim prayer call) at mosques in Puchong and Kota Damansara.

The motion also took to task the Utusan Malaysia newspaper for publishing false news and writings of a racist nature targeting Kok on Sept 10, Oct 12 and Oct 17.

Ng said the false statements by Khir caused Kok to be detained under the Internal Security Act on Sept 12.

He added that Khir's agenda in the matter was to discourage investors from coming to Selangor and was a planned conspiracy to paint Kok as anti-Islam and anti-Malay.

Ng demanded that Khir make a public apology to Kok and Malaysians at large, particularly in Selangor for making the false statements.

Meanwhile, speaking to reporters after the assembly sitting, Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the state government would not take any further action against Khir regarding the matter as Kok was pursuing redress through the courts.

He said no opposition assemblymen including Khir were present in the assembly when the motion was carried.

Ku Li Depends On Secret Ballot for Top Post

Allow secret ballot for top posts, says Ku Li

GUA MUSANG: Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah wants division nominations for the party's top posts to be conducted by secret ballot instead of by a show of hands.

He said there were proposals by many delegates to allow nominations to be done through secret ballots but they were over-ruled.

The Kelantan prince who has offered to contest the party president's post, claimed it was against regulations, bordering on being unconstitutional, to disallow secret ballots for nominations to top posts.

Under Umno’s quota system, candidates aspiring for the post of party president, require 58 nominations.
Since the divisional meetings commenced on Oct 9, Tengku Razaleigh has yet to garner a single nomination, although he remains optimistic after an extensive nationwide tour.

Former Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Mohd Radzi Sheikh Ahmad said the constitution is silent as to whether secret balloting was mandatory during nominations.

Radzi said secret balloting, however, is legally compulsory when Umno delegates select the divisional office bearers such as the division head and when the national delegates choose a president, deputy president, three vice-presidents and supreme council members.

There are 123 Umno divisions which have yet to hold their delegates meetings, Tengku Razaleigh said after simultaneously opening the Gua Musang division Youth, Wanita and Puteri wing meetings here.

Umno No. 1: Razaleigh says his chances still bright
GUA MUSANG, Oct 25 — Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said he believes his chances of contesting the Umno presidency remain bright.

There are 123 Umno divisions which have yet to hold their delegates meetings, he told reporters after simultaneously opening the Gua Musang Youth, Wanita and Puteri meetings today.
All 68 of 191 Umno divisions which have met have nominated Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak for the post of party president.
{note : as updated 7:55pm Oct 26th, Najib had gun-down 99 nominations.
refer to Malaysiakini news at http://malaysiakini.com/news/91946}

"I've stated from the beginning that I'm only offering myself to contest for the post and at this stage, it is not a contest."

"It is up to the delegates to elect anyone qualified but I am urging the delegates not to be afraid of making a decision because it will determine the party's future," Tengku Razaleigh said.
He needs 58 nominations to be eligible to contest for the presidency.
