HINDRAF will talk with both,Ruling BN and Opposition BA!!! - Says Waytha

An Olive Branch to BN............
The Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) is seeking to engage Barisan Nasional in a dialogue, subject to releasing its five leaders presently detained under the Internal Security Act.
The five - P Uthayakumar, M Manoharan, V Ganabatirau, R Kengadharan and K Vasantha Kumar - were arrested on Dec 13 for their alleged involvement in organising illegal gatherings on Nov 25 and making seditious statements against the government.

They are now serving a two-year detention without trial following.
Hindraf’s exiled leader P Waythamoorthy said in a statement today that Hindraf was keen to initiate immediate discussions with political parties on both divides regarding the future of Indian Malaysians.

While maintaining its non-partisan stand, Hindraf warned that “it is now forced to advice Indian Malaysians on whom to vote in the upcoming general elections.”

The reform movement is calling on opposition parties to explicitly state their commitment to advocate and implement steps to enhance Indian rights should they be elected to lead the next government.

However, Waythamoorthy urged the Indian commmunity.
“not to blindly assume that voting for the opposition will solve the problems of oppression, suppression, marginalisation and permanent colonisation of the ethnic Indian community.”

Review our 18 demands
Hindraf reiterated the need to study their 18-point resolution submitted to the prime minister on the needs and demands of the Indian community.
Several of the key demands relate to:
• The maintenance of Malaysia’s status as a secular state
• Full revamp of National Integration Policy
• Reinstatement of Pupil’s Own Language classes in national schools.
• Preserving places of worship
• Affirmative-action plans for the Indian community

“These points should be the paramount consideration in respect to the Indian needs,” it said.
With the elections impending, Hindraf urged political parties on both sides to be transparent and fair to Indian candidates in terms of parliamentary and state seat distribution.

Leading Hindraf from London, Waythamoorthy also called on the ruling coalition to accept the movement as a legitimate pressure group.
