Two Hindrafs: Two Brothers, Two Different Fates



Don’t forget that the Hindraf 6 were charged in court by the BN Government!

Ipoh Hindraf 6: Free at last! But at what price?



Today, Waythamoorthy is a senator and a Deputy Minister. He has found grace and favour from his Master.

P Uthayakumar, instead, goes to jail for sedition. Two-and-a half years of jail time.

The Hindraf brothers: Uthaya jailed the day Waytha becomes senator


Uthaya jailed 2 years 6 months for sedition

Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) de facto leader P Uthayakumar was jailed for two-and a-half years today after he was found guilty of making seditious statements in 2007.

Uthayakumar is accused of publishing seditious material in a letter written between Nov 15 and Dec 8, 2007, to then British prime minister Gordon Brown, in which he alleged state-sponsored social ‘ethnic cleansing’ of the Indian poor in Malaysia.

The letter had also been posted on the now-defunct Police Watch website.

Uthayakumar had refused to continue with his defence on Monday, on grounds that the circumstances of the case did not allow him to proceed. He also refused to make submissions this morning.

Asked to state his plea in mitigation, he merely repeated what he had already said, at least twice this morning, before and after DPP Noorin Badaruddin made her final submissions.

Each time he was asked to address the court, Uthayakumar replied: “Because of the circumstances of this case and in protest against institutionalised racist government policies in Malaysia, victimising in particular the Indian poor, I am unable to proceed further with my defence, re-examination, calling further witnesses, submitting a close of case and mitigation.”

After the court adjourned, he repeatedly asked to be handcuffed. Following this, he posed for a photograph for supporters despite warnings from the court police that photography is prohibited in the courtroom. However, no action was taken against them.

Uthaya’s wife in shock, but proud of husband



Despite the prospect of not seeing her husband P Uthayakumar for the next two and a half years, S Indra Devi said her sadness was mixed with pride over his steadfast resolve.

hindraf dataran vigil 050909 uthayakumar wifeIn a short telephone interview with Malaysiakini after Uthayakumar was sentenced today, Indra Devi (bottom row, second from right) said her husband was jailed for fighting a just cause.

“He knows what he’s doing and will continue doing it till the end. He’s doing his best in fighting for (causes plaguing the) Indians,” said Indra, in between her sobs.

Indra Devi was not at the court today and was unable to bid her husband goodbye. Uthayakumar was brought to the Kajang prison after the sentence was read.

She said she “was shocked”. She did not know that he would be jailed so soon.

“It was wrong. This shouldn’t happen to those who speak the truth,” she stressed.

Thankful for support

Indra Devi thanked her husband’s supporters for standing by them over the past few years to highlight issues affecting the Indian community such as custodial deaths and statelessness, among others.

“They are lovely people who have always been there for us – even until today. I thank them for everything,” she said.

Today because Waytha has very few followers, we can see the impact on Facebook and the New Media where he is constantly bashed. Not a day goes when he is not cursed upon. He is just like how Samy Velu was in 2008, the most hated Indian in Malaysia, so much so he was forced into retirement by UMNO. Did Najib and BN make a haste mistake on Waythamoorthy? Or did they do their sums and make the plunge anyway? It’s just like the forgotten Thenindran from Makkal Shakti all over again. Looks like Waythamoorthy will go the way of Thenindran soon, written off by BN and the Indians.

Cops prevent PKR-Hindraf violence


Athi Shankar | May 1, 2013

The two groups had rallies 500 metres apart in an Indian neighbourhood in Lunas.

LUNAS: PKR supporters tried to disrupt a Hindraf gathering here today, but police managed to prevent the situation from turning ugly.

The gathering was held about 500 metres away from a PKR rally in the predominantly Indian neighbourhood of Paya Besar. Police presence was heavy.

Hindraf chairman P Waythamoorthy arrived to speak at the function at 4.45pm, nearly an hour after the start of the PKR rally, where one of the speakers was N Surendran, the party’s candidate for Padang Serai.

Sources said PKR activists decided to organise their rally after learning about Waythamoorthy’s visit.

The PKR crowd jeered as their Hindraf rivals cheered when he arrived.

PKR supporters tried to march to the Hindraf tent but were stopped by police in riot gear.

Anti-Hindraf protest sees burning of Waytha’s effigy

FMT Staff | May 1, 2013

Waythamoorthy however dismisses claims that he had ‘sold himself to the devil’, saying that this was false propaganda created by Pakatan leaders.

KULIM: Former supporters of Hindraf today expressed their displeasure against the movement’s leader P Waythamoorthy by burning his effigy here.

Their anger was over Waythamoorthy’s decision to side with Barisan Nasional following the signing of a deal between Hindraf and BN on April 18.

DAY 12What’s happening during the election campaigns around the country today? Quotable quotes, planned events and unplanned incidents as they take place.

6.00pm – Gelang Patah: Among the BN and Pakatan flags that have flooded the constituency, small yellow flags are spotted today near the Sutera Mall open car park where Pakatan used to hold its mammoth rallies.

NONEApparently, the yellow flags represent P Waythamoorthy’s faction of Hindraf, the group which has been reported as supporting the BN coalition after caretaker Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak accepted its blueprint for the Indian community.

The movement is slated to hold a ceramah in the constituency tomorrow night and featuring its chief P Waythamoorthy.

It is not surprising for Hindraf to campaign for BN here as Indian voters make up 12 percent of the total voters in Gelang Patah, one of the key seats in this general election which is being contested by Lim Kit Siang from DAP and Abdul Ghani Othman from BN.

Today, the constituency also sees new BN banners featuring Najib. The big banners in both the Chinese and Malay languages read, “Support me, vote for BN”.

Waytha now the most hated Indian in M’sia, Uthaya stale: Can Jayathas’ Hindraf 3.0 reunite the Indians?

Written by  Mathias Gomes, Malaysia Chronicle

Just like BERSIH 1, 2 and 3, we also have HINDRAF 1, 2 and 3 but we cannot compare apple to apple on these two. For BERSIH, the cause was ‘the Rakyat’ all the way. It was truly for the rakyat (people), with the rakyat and always the rakyat at the core of its struggle. But for the HINDRAF, sad to say, its cause has been blemished by corrupted and self-centered individuals who knocked HINDRAF down to their low levels.

Today, as I was watching  a video recorded on April 23, 2013 showing Uthayakumar asking the people not to vote for BN at any cost, well, according to him that was the original struggle of HINDRAF against a biased and racist BN government.

Uthaya told of how he started the movement from his Law Office, and according to him, Waythamoorthy was not involved in any of  HINDRAF’s struggle. Waytha was just chairman of the Vivekananda Society, where members of the group would go on weekends to sing  bajans and mantras . That was all Waytha did because HINDRAF was just a 2-dollar company at that time.

Second fiddle and now the most-hated Indian in M’sia

Waytha was appointed HINDRAF chairman and played second fiddle role to his brother, Uthaya. And after Uthaya was jailed on November 25, 2007, Waytha  hijacked HINDRAF from him and began communicating for the founder members who were by then mostly already behind bars. Waytha put on a false act to convince everyone that he was the HINDRAF leader.

From then on till the day Waytha stepped back onto Malaysian soil, he made people believe that he was the true and original leader of HINDRAF. He lied, fasted and told the people that he was fighting for the Blueprint to make poor Indians life better. According to Uthayakumar, the Blueprint was his idea which was also hijacked by his sibling. Accused of being a paid mercenary, Waytha convinced  his followers that signing the MOU with BN is the best option for the Indians.

Here he also fooled Najib and BN because the only followers he had were a couple of old lieutenants like Ganesan and the people from his old Vivekanada Society who sing bajans on weekends. No wonder’ to make the crowd he chose the Vivekananda Hall, where all his society people would be there. But even so BN and Najib agreed to sign the agreement with HINDRAF 2, not the original HINDRAF 1 which Uthayakumar is in charge of. So Uthayakumar is the one with the larger following of real HINDRAF 1 supporters, and this can be seen wherever Uthaya goes and talks.

Hindraf sacks Waythamoorthy just days after pact with BN

By Emily Ding
April 26, 2013

KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 — In a move that signals its anti-Barisan Nasional position, the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) has sacked its chairman P. Waythamoorthy just days after he signed a pact with the ruling coalition.

Waythamoorthy’s brother and Hindraf co-founder P. Uthayakumar, who is running as an independent in the parliamentary seat of Kota Raja, said he would announce the reason for Waythamoorthy’s sacking at a news conference tomorrow.

He also said they would “launch” two lorries, decorated with anti-BN posters and other paraphernalia, that will go around town spreading Hindraf’s anti-BN message far and wide.

“We are clarifying our position. We are saying we will not vote BN, but whether you want to vote Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is up to you,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

Last week, despite being extremely critical of Umno’s past policies, Waythamoorthy signed a memorandum of understanding with the BN government, which purported to improve the economic position of the Indian community, after negotiations with PR failed.

‘MoU destroyed Hindraf’

B Nantha Kumar | April 19, 2013

Several Indian leaders have lashed out at Hindraf’s P Waythamoorthy for signing a pact with the BN.

PETALING JAYA: Several Indian community leaders claim that the signing of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) yesterday between the Barisan Nasional and a faction of the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) has successfully destroyed Hindraf and its objectives for the Indian community.

“The MoU was not signed in ink but with blood of thousands of Indians who were beaten up by police during the Hindraf rally in 2007,” said S Barathidasan, secretary of Malaysian Indian Progressive Association (Mipas).

“The Indians are shocked with [P] Waythamoorthy [Hindraf leader] and his team who sold out the community for their personal interest,” he told FMT today.

He claimed that the Indian community was, however, mature enough to understand the political gimmick staged by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and Hindraf leader P Waythamoorthy.

“Hindraf [Waythamoorthy’s faction] has lost touch with Indians. Only the opportunists are with him,” he added.

Malacca PKR vice-chairman G Rajendran:
Waythamoorthy, what is your stand on Zulkifli Noordin who is given a ticket to contest under the BN banner for the Shah Alam parliamentary constituency, the CSMU medical university de-recognition, compensation for all the temples demolished by BN government, fully residential Tamil schools, more director- general posts for Indians in government service and such.

Ambiga incensed over ‘Rama or Ravana’ remark

RK Anand | April 19, 2013

The Bersih co-chairperson sees red over P Waythamoorthy’s remark that it does not matter if Rama or Ravana rules.

Detractors are convinced that Waythamoorthy pocketed a handsome sum in return for his allegiance but the Hindraf leader claims that he did so because BN is willing to agree to the movement’s terms of uplifting the Indians whereas Pakatan Rakyat ignored them.

‘What kind of message is this?’

Asked how she felt about the latest development, Bersih co-chairperson S Ambiga preferred to withhold her comment, pointing out that Hindraf is free to enter into political pacts of its choice.

However, the former Bar Council president is appalled by Waythamoorthy’s statement based on the Hindu epic, “Ramayana”.

After inking the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Najib, the Hindraf leader remarked that it did not matter if the nation is ruled by Ravana or Rama.

According to Ambiga, this is a wrong message to send out to the community and children.

“I am horrified that Waythamoorthy said it does not matter whether Rama or Ravana rules. This is shocking since Ravana is seen as the embodiment of evil and Rama, the embodiment of goodness.

“Furthermore, this message is intended for the Indians and the Hindus revere Lord Rama,” she said.

“I am utterly shocked that he is selling this idea that it does not matter if the ruler is good or evil and that it is all right to negotiate with evil. What kind of message is that?” she added.



Hindraf dropped human rights fight for Najib pact

The Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) had to drop demands pertaining to racism and death in custody in its historic pact with the BN, signed by the coalition’s chairperson Najib Abdul Razak yesterday.

s ganesan hindraf pc brickfields five-year blueprint“We had to concede during the negotiations… points relating to human rights,” the movement’s advisor N Ganesan (right) told Malaysiakini today.

However, he said that this was done in the backdrop of guarantees for the greater economic welfare of the Indian Malaysians.

“Our focus now is economic justice,” he reasoned, arguing that binding assurances for the uplifting of the Indian poor is a major victory in itself.

Ganesan said the four points contained in the agreement between BN and Hindraf are:

  • Economic opportunities, housing, re-skilling and training for displaced estate workers;
  • Relief for stateless persons;
  • Increased education opportunities from primary to tertiary levels, including scholarships for Indians;
  • Giving Indians increased access to employment and business opportunities.

The two demands dropped relate to racism against Indians and death in custody involving Indians.

Ganesan reiterated that this new deal is good for Indian community, especially the Indian poor.

Burying the hatchet BN uses to hack Indian community

“Guess that’s 31 pieces of silver you’ve got now, huh? Sleep well, Judas.”

– Mark Millar (Civil War)

COMMENT Hindraf chairperson P Waythamoorthy “admitted that there will be criticism over this deal, and acknowledged that some might accuse the movement of selling out”, reported Malaysiakini.

Here let me put a name to that “some”. I am revolted, disgusted and repulsed by this so-called ‘deal’ Hindraf and Waythamoorthy have cooked up with Umno.

Now, Hindraf after accusing the present regime of “ethnic cleansing” and cataloguing decades’ worth of “crimes” against the Indian community asks this same community to give Umno-BN a two-thirds majority. This is a betrayal to everyone who advocated on behalf of Hindraf, but more importantly to the community they claim to represent.

In addition, what of the MIC? By asking the Indian community to support BN, is Hindraf asking for the rejection of opposition Indian politicians like Jeyakumar and the numerous other so-called mandores of Pakatan?

Is Hindraf asking for the return of MIC? Could the MIC, which Hindraf was at war with, better serve the Indian community than the Indian opposition politicians?

The MIC and their cyber goons have claimed that Hindraf belongs to or supports racists’ organisations from India with the goal of eliminating the Malay race (sic).

In the real world, Hindraf has not only been harassed by these same goons – I was there when Hindraf marched and know of those MIC cretins, who were egging on the police to shower us with gas – and by the outsourced thugs of Umno. Is Hindraf going to walk hand in hand with them and propagate the lies of Umno?

MIC MP P Kamalanathan said that Perkasa is merely defending the rights of the Malay community just like other racial sociopolitical organisations. Does this mean that Hindraf will campaign for Perkasa vice-president Zulklifi Noordin for the Indian vote in Shah Alam, now that Hindraf has thrown its support behind BN?

Burying the hatchet BN uses to hack Indian community



Hindraf’s victory riddled with ambiguity

COMMENT The Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) has pulled off a victory by getting caretaker Prime Minister and BN chief Najib Abdul Razak to sign an agreement that promises action to fulfill four of the six demands made by the movement.

Suffice to say, Hindraf has pulled off a victory.

But any move to congratulate them must be stayed for reason of the ambiguities inherent in their victory.

The Zulkifli enigma

A movement fighting for the removal of institutionalised sectarianism should be wary of a governing coalition that has a candidate like Perkasa vice-president Zulkifli Nordin on its slate.

NONEIn calling for Indians to support BN on the basis of the deal it has worked out with it, Hindraf is proposing to ignore what the implications are for the presence of a bigot on the ballot like Zulkifli (centre in photo).


Fair enough, but now Hindraf is caught in a similar straits: how true to its word can a ruling coalition pledged to Indian poverty alleviation be when it has someone like Zulkifli – who has uttered anti-Indian and anti-Hindu sentiments – on board.

Can it not be said – in a reversal of Pakatan’s stance vis-à-vis Hindraf’s demands – that a Zulkifli-toting BN has accepted those demands in principle but not in spirit?

Hindraf’s victory riddled with ambiguity


BN-UMNO backs Zulkifli Nordin, Super Racist who insults Hinduism and considers Private Investigator Bala a ‘keling’, for the General Elections. Hindraf will a pact with BN-UMNO.

Uthaya dubs brother’s camp as ‘Hindraf hijackers’
6:50PM Apr 18, 2013

P Uthayakumar, one of the two brothers who established Hindraf, has accused the Hindraf faction led by his younger brother P Waythamoorthy of “hijacking” the movement.

NONEUthayakumar said this in a text message to Malaysiakini, minutes before Waythamoorthy’s (right) camp held a ceremony for interim prime minister and BN chairperson Najib Abdul Razak to endorse the so-called Hindraf blueprint.

The endorsement turned out to be the signing of a “memorandum of understanding” with Hindraf on its blueprint.

“No, it is not acceptable to sign it on the eve of the general election,” said Uthayakumar.

“As the senior-most and de facto leader of Hindraf, we ask for delivery first of Hindraf’s 18-point demands dated Aug 12, 2007, which are already more than five long years’ overdue and with almost zero delivery – except for the Umno hampers and rice packets for the Indian poor.”

Uthayakumar said that Hindraf’s stance has not changed since its formation in 2006 and that the movement will not support BN.

“The Hindraf political directions remain the same – Do not vote for Umno and BN, voting for Pakatan Rakyat is up to the individual,” he said.

According to Uthayakumar, Hindraf cannot support Pakatan because the coalition is unable to take responsibility for the coalition’s “non-delivery” to the Indian poor in the states it controls.

“To the indian poor, BN cheats more and Pakatan cheats less. We want change, but not for Pakatan to be replaced with an Umno clone. To this effect, I am going ahead to contest in Kota Raja and Seri Andalas,” he said.

Waytha urges Indians to return BN’s two-thirds

The Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) has urged Indians to return BN its two-thirds majority in the forthcoming general election.

In pledging full support for the ruling coalition, Hindraf chairperson P Waythamoorthy said that all Indians must start spreading the word that their welfare will only be taken care off by BN.

He was speaking during an event in Brickfields today which saw BN chairperson Najib Razak signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Hindraf to implement the BN-Hindraf five-year blueprint for the Indian community.

It covers four main areas – the upliftment of displaced estate workers, resolving the issue of statelessness, the  provision of both education and business opportunities.

However, the Hindraf-BN agreement apparently did not address a number of key areas of the movement’s blueprint, especially racism and deaths in police custody.

According to the agreement, should BN retain federal power, it would set up a new unit under the Prime Minister’s Office to implement the details of the MOU.

Waythamoorthy said that change must not only take place in terms of “faces that leads the country” but the changes must take place in the lives of Malaysian, especially the Indian poor.

Waytha urges Indians to return BN’s two-thirds


Jayathas, who is also PKR’s human rights legal bureau deputy chairman, said that Indians will never allow Hindraf to be hijacked and destroyed by Waythamoorthy and his associates.

“The so-called Hindraf leader Waythamoorthy and his associates’ act of going over to the BN side has created an emergency situation for the movement.

“Waythamoothy and his cronies have gone against the wishes and the struggle of Hindraf members throughout the country,” said Jayathas.

‘Waytha no longer part of Hindraf’

Accusing him of working in cahoots with BN, former Hindraf leader S Jayathas says an interim management committee has been formed to manage the movement’s affairs

PETALING JAYA: P Waythamoorthy and his cronies are no longer authorised to issue statements on behalf of Hindraf, said the movement’s former leader S Jayathas.

Jayathas,who is now with PKR, said that he had formed an interim management committee to run the affairs of the movement for the time being.

“We have strong evidence that Waythamoorthy will seal a deal with Umno.This is a shocking betrayal of the Hindraf movement and the Indian community,” said Jayathas

Five days ago, Jayathas accused Waythamoorthy of working in cahoots with Umno by concealing the fact that Hindraf got itself registered officially one month ago.

“This registration of an organisation called Persatuan Hindraf Malaysia (Hindraf) was approved on March 8. This was two days before Waythamoorthy began his hunger strike.

“During the hunger strike he attacked the opposition for the benefit of Barisan Nasional,” said Jayathas.

‘Waytha no longer part of Hindraf’

HINDRAF has made a major impact to the political landscape of Malaysia in staging the 2007 HINDRAF rally. In late 2007, several prominent members of the HINDRAF were arrested, some on charges of sedition, following an enormous rally organised by HINDRAF in November. The charges were dismissed by the courts. Five people have since been detained without trial under the Internal Security Act.

He was reluctant to give any other information about what has been agreed to between the prime minister and Hindraf. He said, “You are welcome to hear about it yourself.”

WHO’S AFRAID OF ZUL NOORDIN: Hindraf leaders have lost focus and all credibility

Written by  Moaz Nair, Malaysia Chronicle

Hindraf (Hindu Rights Action Force) or HRP (Human Rights Party) has been criticising Pakatan Rakyat (PR) bitterly for “not doing anything” for Indians just before their five-year term was over. But Hindraf is not reproaching Barisan Nasional (BN) with the same fervour for its 56 years of rule and the continuous oppression of the Indian community.

Hindraf leaders have lost direction and as reported they plan to contest in the 13th general elections in PR strongholds. Apparently they have chosen to contest in seats where PR has the chance to be victorious. Awkwardly, they do not have the mind to face the MIC heavyweights, win and replace MIC in BN and fight for the poor Indians.

According to political analysts, there is no way they can win any seat contested without the support of either BN or PR. Yet they still want to join in the fray. The only reason must be that they want to play the role of a spoiler – more against PR than BN.

Have Hindraf leaders muddled their thoughts with political bias and confusion? Have they not seen the struggles made by Indian leaders within PR for the marginalised Indians within the last five years as compared with what UMNO has done for them in the past 56 years the country has been under BN rule?

WHAT A SNAKE! Waytha went on hunger strike to get sympathy, kept ROS approval secret

Written by  S Jayathas

We are gravely concerned by new evidence that has come into our possession regarding a secret deal and collaboration between P. Waythamoorthy’s Hindraf faction and the UMNO BN regime.

On 8th March 2013, the Registrar of Societies had approved the registration of Waythamoorthy’s Hindraf faction under the name Hindraf Malaysia (Hindraf). The registration is signed and sealed by Dato’ Abdul Rahman bin Othman, Registrar of Societies of Malaysia.

The registration of Hindraf could not have been done without the approval of the Home Ministry and PM Najib’s blessings.

Went on fast but kept ROS approval secret

What is shocking is that Waythamoorthy and his associates deliberately concealed the fact of registration from the Malaysian public and particularly the Indian community.

This was clearly intended to keep the negotiations between Hindraf and BN secret from the public and the Indian community. We view this as a blatant attempt to mislead the public and in particular the Indian community.

Further it is highly suspicious that the registration was approved on 8th March 2013, which was just 2 days before Waythamoorthy began a so-called hunger strike. During the hunger strike he carried out a campaign of attacks against the opposition which benefited BN. It is clear that the hunger strike was intended to justify Waythamoorthy’s meeting with Najib to the Indian community.

Secret deal in London

This is proven by the fact that just two weeks into the so-called hunger strike, Waythamoorthy rushed to Putrajaya to meet PM Najib.

Prior to that UMNO BN had suddenly allowed Waythamoorthy to return to Malaysia. Soon after that on January 26, 2013 the UMNO-BN regime lifted the ban on Hindraf.

Was a secret deal concluded between UMNO-BN and Waythamoorthy in London?

The above shows evidence of collaboration and a clandestine arrangement between Waythamoorthy’s Hindraf and UMNO BN. It should be noted that this is against the founding principle of Hindraf to remove the UMNO-BN regime from power.

Such a collaboration by Waythamoorthy with UMNO-BN will be a betrayal of Hindraf’s grassroots and supporters throughout the country.

Don’t lie, explain to the Hindraf grassroots

We now call upon Waythamoorthy and his Hindraf faction to explain to the public why they had concealed the registration of Hindraf and the real reasons for UMNO-BN’s sudden registration of Hindraf.

Waythamoorthy must also reveal to the Indian community all secret deals and negotiations with UMNO BN. The public has a right to know and Waythamoorthy must respond immediately.
