PH & Tun Mahathir’s UMNO era divisive racial policies & politics in ‘preserving’ B75 Indian poor in Malay-sia Baru

Author/Source: P. Uthayakumar / Sahabat Rakyat Blog



This article is the full text written by P. Uthayakumar specially for the forum in commemoration of the 18th Anniversary of Sahabat Rakyat entitled “Mahathir returns to power after regime change in the 14th General Election, A progression or regression of the democratic reform movement?” held at Cathay Restaurant Kulai, Johor on 21 September 2019.




It is 470 days today of Tun Mahathir’s  Pakatan Harapan(PH) government. It appeared magical and a dream come true for especially the B75 Indian poor when real multi-racialism took centre stage and the end of the UMNO era divisive racist and supremacist policies and politics. The euphoria was further escalated when unprecedentedly the Attorney General, four(4) Ministers and the Deputy Rural and Regional Development Deputy Minister were Indians, Lim Guan Eng and Gobind Singh were  made Finance and Multimedia (Information) Ministers respectively, Liew Chin Tiong the Deputy Defence Minister and Richard Malanjum the Chief Justice. Further Jakim was to be reviewed, three most powerful UMNO leaders (and the then Attorney General) were barred from leaving the country and later prosecuted,UMNO Accounts frozen and the all powerful UMNO crushing and falling before our very eyes etc.
What more Pakatan Harapan (PH) also winning up to 95% of the Indian votes on the promises made in the 25 point Pakatan Harapan (Indian) GE 14 Elections Manifesto which promises to solve almost the A to Z of the B75 Indian poor problems. But fast forward 470 days today, it appears that in Pakatan Harapan and Tun Mahathir’s UMNO era divisive racist and supremacist policies and politics especially in ‘preserving’ the B75 Indian poor in Malay-sia Baru to be yet again left behind from Malay-sia Baru’s National Mainstream Development … appears to reigning supreme all over again in contravention of especially Article 8 of the Federal Constitution which guarantees equality before the law and the very core of the Pakatan Harapan 25 Point (Indian) Manifesto itself.
Our Case in these 470 days but to no avail :-


  1. (More for record purposes) vide our letter dated 14/5/18 we had written to Tun Mahathir titled “Humble proposal for post of D.G. Implementation & Coordinating Unit (ICU), PM’s Dept in particular to implement Pakatan Harapans’ Indian manifesto for Hindraf De Facto Leader and senior lawyer Mr.P.Uthayakumar”.
  2. Vide our letter dated 25/5/2018 and 23/7/18 to Tun Mahathir titled “Permohonan pendaftaran Hindraf 2.0” and  “Rayuan – Penolakan pendaftaran Hindraf 2.0 oleh Pendaftar Pertubuhan; tidak mematuhi Perlembagaan Persekutuan(Freedom of Association) Akta Pertubuhan, “Rule of Law”, Manifesto Pakatan Rakyat & Malaysia Baru”.
  3. Within three(3) weeks of PH taking power, vide our 13 page researched Memorandum to Tun Mahathir dated 28/5/2018 we had proposed amongst others the creation of 100,000 business and self employment opportunities per year for the B75 Indian poor especially so in undoing the injustices caused by the UMNO era divisive racist policies and politics.
  4. Vide our letter dated 18/6/2018 we had written to Tun Mahathir and Mrs. Anwar Ibrahim,DPM cum Welfare Minister titled “Homeless Partially Blind Indian Lady (also 3 of her 5 children), husband broke both legs in accident & still hospitalized : Permanent Solutions for B75 Indian poor?:Tip of Iceberg!”.
  5. Vide our letter dated 10/7/2018 to Prime Minister and Federal Territories Minister Khalid Samad titled “SOS: Rayuan supaya Store Peniaga Kecil Barangan Lusoh India tidak dirobohkan … dalam memenuhi Manifesto No18 Kerajaan PH… Beli dari B75 India miskin @ B75 membeli Mee Maggi. (3) Cadangan “legalise” Perniagaan Besi Lusoh”. However four Indian Recycling Outlets in Setapak were demolished on 21/2/2019.
  6. In not wanting to give a walk over in the backdrop of PH still flying high, we cautiously marked the 100th day of PH in power with a small Public Forum in Brickfeilds outlining our 4 page researched Memorandum to Tun Mahathir dated 17/8/2018 amongst others calling for the delivery of the 25 point PH Indian Manifesto wherein they had acknowledged in particular in the preamble thereto “Sebagai rakyat yang mempunyai hak yang sama dengan semua warganegara lain, sudah tiba masanya untuk semua bentuk diskriminasi yang  menzalimi warga India dihapuskan … Pengagihan kekayaan negara mestilah dilakukan secara adil dan penindasan ekonomi terhadap warga India dihentikan serta-merta…” Wow!
  7. On 9/4/2019 the Putrajaya Federal Court Panel led by Tan Sri Azhar Mohamad dismissed a Public Interest case for justice  by lawyer P.Uthayakumar where OKU Muneswaran who from birth is blind in one eye, the other eye partially blind and of low intelligence was beaten by a group of 12 policemen at his low cost flat, also involving an A.C.P up until he vomited blood.
  8. On the 1st year anniversary of PH rule, at a small outdoor Rally in Brickfeilds on 12/5/2019 (also attended by Sahabat Rakyat) we were about the first to albeit politely rebuke Tun Mahathir publicly vide our 21 page researched Memorandum dated 8/5/2019 and titled “1 year Pakatan Harapan Govt @ Indian Manifesto Report Card. End 62 years racist & supremacist policies & politics victimizing B75 Indian poor: 1% delivery for B75 (Indian poor) & 50.1% Rating : HINDRAF 2.0”.
    (Note: It was only after this 1 year critical mass timeline that the B75 Indian poor and others started openly and publicly appearing to rebuke the Pakatan Harapan administration)
  9. Vide our Statement copied to Tun Mahathir titled “Harapans’ Indian poor non delivery reverberates in Kedah “Barisan lost, Harapan won but did the B75 Indian poor win? … “End Umno era divisive racist policies and politics!”  @ Lunas, Padang Serai forum on 23/6/19.
  10. On 26/7/2019 Legal Aid Lawyer K.Arivom Namasivayam was prosecuted by Negeri Sembilan State Prosecution Director DPP Wan Shaharuddin bin Wan Ladin for merely discharging his duties in defending a domestic violence victim who had lodged 16 police reports against her estranged husband. This is despite Arivom’s Lawyer P.Uthayakumar’s letter of representation dated 21/7/2019.
  11. On 15/8/2019 P.Uthayakumar’s Public Interest Appeal was dismissed by the Putrajaya Court of Appeal for the Pengarah Penjara Kajang to be cited for Contempt of Court for failing to abide by the Kuala Lumpur High Court Orders to imprison him at Kajang Prison separately from common criminals like where the Malay and Chinese Political Prisoners were imprisoned and to be sent for Medical treatment to HUKM.
  12. Vide our letter dated 17/9/2019  to Tun Dr.Mahathir and the IGP titled “On Malaysia Day, 2 Malaysian Indians & 1 British P.R. family mere suspects shot dead by police, ‘enforced disappearance’ of wife. SOS: Stop police “shoot to kill policy” & “enforced disappearance” under Pakatan Harapans’ New Malaysia, forthwith implement IPCMC, guns & bullets Audit, & Urgent Appointment with IGP.
  13. Summary of  PH top 15 non delivery of even of the very basic necessities food, shelter and education for the B75 Indian Poor is as per Annexture 1 enclosed herewith.
(Note: Dr.Mahathir and PH did not even reply to our aforesaid letters)
As it stands today, the 470th day, even the PH top leaders like Lim Kit Siang and Rais Hussin have conceded that if the General Elections were to be held today PH would lose, largely because of their non fulfillment of the GE 14 Election promises. It is  disappointing to note that Tun Mahathir appears to be going back to his good old ways  … started playing up the UMNO era divisive racist and supremacist policies and politics including denial of Matriculation and critical courses seats for the B75 Indian poor, Zakir Naik, Khat(Jawi), Zamri Vinod, PHs’ late reaction to non muslim food products  boycott, Indira Ghandi’s unlawfully converted daughter   still “not recovered” even by IGP Hamid Bador, Sedition Act,POCA,POTA, the death sentence and other repressive laws not repealed,ICERD not ratified, the attempted demolishment and/or denial of land to the Seafeilds Temple and thousands of other Hindu temples, cemeteries, Tamil schools, Indian Felda and Felcra schemes, cow farms, besi buruk and car wash outlets etc.
So what is to be the solution? … A Third Force perhaps … ?
De Facto Leader, Hindraf 2.0
Annexture 1*
  1. The 100 days promise to some 350,000(4) B75 Indian poor is yet to be delivered by failing to fulfill even PH Promise No.1 by still denying them their Constitutional Birth Certificates and Citizenship @ innate Birth Rights which could be resolved merely by the stroke of the pen by the Prime Minister and/or Home Minister’s Directive to the Director General of the National Registration Department.
    (We have recorded only the seasonal mere 200 citizenships announced by the Home Minister during Deepavali 2018 @ 0.05% delivery. To quote Social Activist Dr.Kua Kia Soong “at this rate we will be witnessing such yearly Deepavali “gifts” for the next 1,500 years!(5). Maybe marking PHs’ 1st anniversary(5A) a further 1,641(0.46%) citizenships were dished out).
  2. Vide PHs’ Promise No 10, RM1,500.00 minimum wage also within 100 days is not fulfilled.
  3. Vide Promise No 2 PH promised to provide affordable Housing especially for the estate workers and the B40 (B75 for Indian poor). To the direct contrary we have recorded at PHs’ 1st anniversary an accumulated 45,403 (10) cases of homeless, landless and the homes of the B75 Indian poor being demolished arising largely from the unfulfilled Tun Razak Estate Workers Housing Scheme 1973 Policy.
    (Note: The Malays, Orang Asli, Kadazan, Iban etc. have tens of thousands of villages, farms  and land banks nationwide (also foreign workers in their respective countries), even the poor Chinese have 630 Chinese New Villages. To the contrary the B75 Indian poor have almost Zero villages, farms and land banks as their social safety net(11). In an emergency or in the event of a misfortune, they have Zero Social Safety Net to the extent that their option may be to commit suicide (12).
  4. Vide PH promise No 4, full financial aided status for all 525 Tamil schools with same infrastructure standards as that of  National schools within their first term (Parliamentary Term) is a non starter. We have however recorded 191(13) instances of Tamil Schools being denied even the very basics for example tables and chairs, children using tar roads as playing fields, ammonia fumes and ash from factory and crematorium, denied kindergartens, annex buildings, toilets in deplorable state, access roads etc.
    (Note: Critical situations in Tamil schools ranging from being under high tension TNB electric cables, 90 year old wooden and on the verge of collapsing, termite infested, catching fire, cramped up by almost 100%, Serendah Tamil School yet to be built even after one by-election, two General Elections and two “pecah tanah”, public protests etc, construction of 37 Tamil schools not completed even up to 8 years now, Tamil School even in the Education Minister’s Constituency denied 150 meters access road and therefore cannot be opened, operating from Construction Cabins, low enrolment schools refused to be relocated to largely Indian populated areas).
  5. Vide PH Promise No. 15 and 18, small Indian businesses would be given micro credit, financial assistance, licenses and business permits will be made easy especially for the Indian Recycling outlets.
    (Note: Why not licenses and micro credit facilities be given to even operate Burger, Mobile Stalls and Food Trucks in Chinese Housing areas let alone denying tens of thousands of petty trading licenses etc. We have recorded seven elderly Indian traders in Brickfields having operated for 40 years who were given Notice to evict (72). An Indian Sugarcane water and food stall was similarly demolished in Setapak (73) and another Indian Recycling Outlet in Puchong demolished (74).
  6. Vide Promise No. 17 PH will grant FELDA and FELCRA like land settlement schemes with financial assistance. However we have recorded Zero to date. PH could have Compulsorily Acquired further to Section 76 (aa) (ii) and Section 116(1)(d)(4) of the National Land Code read together with the Land Acquisition Act 1965 and the Local Government Act of for example Sime Darby Plantation lands for this purpose. PH choose to watch silently as bulldozers literally bulldozed 111 traditional Indian vegetable farms in Cameron Highlands (75).
  7. Although qualified, only an estimated 2% of Public Universities’ intake are allowed for Malaysian Indians and most B75 cannot afford Private Universities especially in the critical courses like Medicine, Dentistry, Engineering, Pharmacy, Accountancy, Architecture  and other Professional courses.
  8. For the year 2018 a total of 2,200 Matriculation places were granted by the previous BN government for high achieving Indian SPM students also after Hindrafs’ public protests since 2010. But the PH Education Minister Maszlee Malek announced that the said 2,200 places was a one off grant. The next day PH must have directed their powerless and showpiece Indian Senior most Minister to do a la MIC Tamil Dailies headlines propaganda that the said 2,200 places is retained but which was never mentioned in the said Education Minister’s Media Statement released on the very same day! (76).
  9. PH has also still refused to recognize the long outstanding. Thousands of B75 Indian poor Medical Graduates from affordable overseas Medical Universities.
  10. Vide Promise No. 6 and 7,  PH promised places in Fully Residential schools, MRSM and Regular Residential Secondary Schools (and Giat Mara Colleges?) for the B 75. We have recorded the announcement of 377 out of 7,760 places (78) or 4.85% in Form One at MRSM for the year 2019 intake. In confirming the authenticity of even the said 377 places the Rural and Regional Development Ministry has not published a list of the names and Identity Card numbers of the said students. In giving proper effect, provisions for Indian food, Hindu Counselor Teachers and weekly Hindu Temple visits is not made.
  11. Vide Promise No. 19, PH promised to provide sufficient places for Hindu Temples and Hindu Cemeteries. However not only were the existing Hindu temples not granted land, gazette and granted Land Titles accordingly but many were demolished. The Seafeilds Hindu Temple demolishment saga sent a dangerous signal when at least 12 people were injured and 23 of the intruder’s cars unprecedentedly burnt by angry Hindus. Disregarding “Dr. M: Riots should be a wake up call” (79), PH government further demolished the Relau Hindu Temple in Penang (80).
    (Note : In the aftermath of the 25th November 2007 Hindraf Rally, the UMNO government made a Ministerial Statement in Parliament that no Hindu temples would be demolished in Kuala Lumpur which was honored as at the 2018 General Elections. To the contrary PH demolished the Kampong Limau PPR Hindu temple (81), and the Jinjang Utara Hindu Temple in April 2019. The PPR Kg Baru Air Panas Hindu Temple was slated for demolished also on the 17th of April 2019 but was deferred when Hindraf 2.0 launched a Social Media campaign against the same. We have henceforth recorded three Hindu temple demolishments by the PH government. 152 hindu temples in need of the PH State government land (potential Seafeilds Temple time bombs?) including the 120 year old Tepi Sungai, Klang Mariaman Hindu Temple (82). The Prime Minister as Chairman of the National Physical Planning Council by the stroke of the pen can direct that all houses of worship (and cemeteries), no matter how small it is to be incorporated and recognized on the Masterplan of any land(83), and thereafter gazetted and issued Land Titles accordingly.
    We have also recorded thirteen(13) Hindu cemeteries and last rites ceremony Halls similarly denied Land Titles with one Hindu Cemetery actually going missing in thin air(84).
  12. Vide Promise No. 11, PH promised to direct GLCs’, Federal Government Agencies and Local Authorities to target 10% of the workforce for the B75 Indian poor. To date we have actually recorded ZERO.
  13. Vide Promise No. 22,  PH promised to address (B75) Indian poverty “unlike the UMNO government”. Our monitoring however reveals widespread chronic poverty :- “If lucky we get rice porridge, if not rice in water” for single mother and 3 children (85), Son, daughter and daughter in law all passed away leaving eight grand children aged 7, 9, 10… with grandmother (60) and are given a mere RM200.00 by the Welfare Department! (86), students going hungry to school (87), Single Mother with two young children denied Welfare help at all (88) Homeless family living at bus stop with 3 year old baby (89), No mattress and forced to sleep on cement as her husband is in jail for mother(62) with 3 young children who is also a stroke patient(90), Broke hand and leg in accident, single mother with 7 children struggles (91), Three children 11,14 and 15 cannot even afford to go to school (92).
    (Note: This widespread B75 chronic poverty also contributes to increase in Indian crime rate which came about only in the last 30 years of UMNO and the last 470 days in the PH rule.
  14. Widespread B75 workforce victims denied SOCSO Claims and Pensions. The powerless PH Indian Human Resources Senior Minister is of no or very little help!!!
  15. Vide promise No 16. PH promised to form the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in combating (widespread racial) discrimination and unfairness both in the public and private sectors. But we have recorded ZERO delivery, maybe in recognition of the Zero votes for BN campaign!
