Neither MCA, Gerakan nor other Chinese associations or NGOs have ever requested mainland China to do so. They remain Malaysians.
However, Hindraf which represents a minority of Malaysian Indians went overboard by asking New Delhi to sever all trade relation with Malaysia. There only reason, 'ill-treatment of the Indians by Malaysian Government' (here).
The call was made based on Hindraf’s Malaysian Indian Minority and Human Rights Violations annual report 2010 which claimed that Malaysian Indians were suffering grave human rights violations committed by the Malaysian government. Hindraf activists had distributed copies of the report at the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (Overseas Indians Conference) in New Delhi, which commenced yesterday last Friday.
(Former MIC president Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu was also there leading a 150-strong delegation but did not say anything to refute Hindraf's claim).
Based on news reports published by the Malaysian media, the Hindraf report alleged that 95 per cent of those killed by the Malaysian police were Indians, 90 per cent of custodial deaths and 80 per cent of those who experienced 'police harassment, unlawful arrests, frivolous and malicious prosecutions', were Malaysian Indians.
The report added that 48 per cent of prisoners in 28 prisons in Malaysia were ethnic Indians and in 2010 alone, 5,000 Indians were arrested and detained under the Emergency Ordinance, which allowed for detention without trial.But a Human Ministry's report said about 200,000 Indian youths in Malaysia were involved in crime. About 100,000 ethnic Indian gangsters operate in Malaysia.
This gave Hindraf chairman's P Waythamoorthy (pic) the 'license' to ask the Indian government to issue a note of censure against its Malaysian counterpart in a language consistent with the serious and urgent nature of the problem.
I think Moorthy doesnt consider himself as a Malaysia, and so the rest of Hindraf members. They feel they are citizens of India. That's why they wanted to see the Malaysian economy takes a flop, hence giving room for its Indian gangsters to run an amok for survival.
This guy is a traitor. I commend former premier Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for outlawing Hindraf during his tenancy but Najib legalised them.
People like Moorthy doesnt deserve to be a Malaysian and I personally would like the Home Minister to take up this matter. If there is a need to strip his citizenship, I believe many Indians would support the move!
Moorthy and his followers can leave Malaysia once they get their Indian citizenship!
