Hindraf Chairman Mr. Waythamoorthy is on Hunger Viratham since Shiva Rathiri 10/03/2013 in Malaysia demanding equal human rights for the Malaysian Indian hindu Community have been marginalised since 1957.
During his exile in UK in 2012 the Hindraf Chairman Mr. Waythamoorthy along with other Malaysian Indians have filed an civil action in July 2012 against the British government at the Royal Court of justice London for the Malaysian government’s failure to safeguard the Indians Rights embodied in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.
As we know during the British Rule of Malaya, the British Rulers brought Indians mainly from South India and many parts of India to work as indenture labourers. The Poor Indians were promised that they will be given land of five to ten acres if they work and stay in Malaya for few years (600 days) in Malaya now Malaysia as settlement before the Independence 1957.
However, these indenture labourers brought from India was not given their rightful entitlements by the British Rulers and the Malaysian Government who were the trustees undertaken from the British before the independence in 1957.
It also came to our attention recently, that the Hindraf leaders found that, the Malaysia’s Constitution was doctored. During my recent interview with HHR (Hindu Human Rights), they asked me in order to put things right for everyone in Malaysia what needs to be done? In my opinion, I told the HHR leaders that Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II who is the Head of Commonwealth should revisit the Malaysia’s Constitution and rectify the doctored constitution so that each and every Malaysian citizen will enjoy the equal Constitutional rights in Malaysia
Hindraf Chairman Mr. Waythamoorthy has also gathered all the evidence to prove the Doctored Constitution at the forthcoming case at the Royal Court of Justice in London against the British Government for their neglect on Poor Malaysian Indians. This vital documents/evidence was found by Hindraf Chair/ Legal Team in London archives. We also submitted few memorandums to our British Prime Ministers at 10 Downing Street in respect of Malaysian Indians’ Violations. Further to this Mr. Waythamoorthy and British Human Rights NGOS had many briefings at the House of Commons and House of Lords in respect of the Malaysian Indians’ Violations. The Hindraf Supremo worked tirelessly highlighting at the United Nations for the Poor Malaysian Indians in order to get their Basic and Constitutional rights.
Furthermore the Hindraf Chair Mr. Waythamoorthy also requested few Parliamentary seats for Hindraf for the coming G13 in 2013 to represent these marginalised Indians. He also requested the ruling UMNO government and opposition leader to create a Ministry for Ethnic Minorities to resolve the Ethnic Minorities issues. The ruling government and the Opposition leaders (PAKATAN, PAS and DAP) were not in favour of Hindraf Chair’s proposal. Mr. Waythamoorthy’s ongoing Hunger Viratham has now been highlighted across the world and the International communities. Hindu Council urges the Ruling UMNO government and the Opposition Leaders to solve the ethnic Indians’ violations in order to end the Hindu Rights Leader’s Hunger Strike with immediate effect
