I hear Tamils are really really being mistreated in Malaysia now by majority, but now not over language, but religion

Thiru, do you follwo this also?


Yes, I was following it. Not sure what stage that is at right now. The organization that was representing the "Indian" section (which makes up majority of Tamils) of the Malaysian population in the protest (Hindu Rights Action Force or Hindraf in short) was demanding compensation from the British Government (if I remember correctly) and brought forward an Indictment Against Malaysia; because when they were brought for labors in Malaysia and were promised many things which the British Empire did not fulfill. Instead they were left stranded (after the British granted independence) with Malaysia being dominated by Bumiputra Laws (Sons of soils Law) which gives exclusive rights for the Malay population over the Indian and Chinese population. The Chinese population of Malaysia has protested decades and decades ago which is one of the reasons why I consider Singapore being granted the permission to leave Malaysia (if that did not happen, Malaysia would have been destroyed by a similar conflict as in Sri Lanka). Singapore however learned from the mistake of Malaysia and Ceylon (now known as Sri Lanka) and has built a state that I consider is delivering equality to the best of its abilities. Because of the Bumiputra Laws the Indian section of the population is finding it hard to compete with the Malays (who are politically powerful as well as economically) and to the less extent the Chinese (who are economically well off).

I remember an episode where there was many protests by the Indian section of the Malaysian population where the picture of Gandhi was being it intensified picture of Velupillai Prabhakaran started emerging in the sent shockwaves through the Malaysian government.......and many of the leaders of the protest were arrested on the accusation of suspected links with the LTTE.... I stopped following or didn't follow it thoroughly with the Malaysian protest as the Sri Lankan Army started bombing Tamil Eelam .....


"Angry ethnic Indians who marched in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday to protest race-based discrimination in Malaysia carried portraits of Mahatma Gandhi as a symbol of their non-violent struggle.

"But if their genuine grievances continue to be ignored, (Sri Lankan Tamil Tigers leader) Velupillai Prabakaran could soon replace Gandhi as their inspiration," warns P. Ramasamy, former professor of history at University Kebangsaan Malaysia.

In an interview to DNA from Singapore, Ramasamy, who was appointed by the LTTE to its Constitutional Affairs Committee in 2003, connected the dots that link the Tamil diaspora in Malaysia (which accounts for most of the Indian population there) to the Tamil Eelam movement in Sri Lanka.

The chilling picture that emerges is one that holds serious foreign policy implications for India, quite similar to what it faced in Sri Lanka in the early 1980s." - Tamils will be radicalised if discrimination continues, Daily News & Analysis, 29 November 2007
