Stay away from Hindraf rally, Indians warned


The MIC has called on the Indian community to stay away from a planned gathering in front of the British High Commission on Sunday.

It said the organisers of the rally, the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf), was a front for the opposition.Disciplinary action would be taken against party members participating in the event, which had been widely covered in Tamil dailies.MIC secretary-general Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam said yesterday the organisers were irresponsible as they would not take the blame in the event of any untoward incidents."In the end, the community will be the real loser."

The organisers plan to present 100,000 signatures in a petition to Queen Elizabeth II for a Queen's Counsel to represent the Indian community in a representative action filed on Aug 30 in the United Kingdom seeking STG4 trillion (RM27.7 trillion) in compensation for the community from the British government.

He said the MIC was not against social activism but felt it must be within reason."They must be realistic and work towards objectives that are realistic."Subramaniam also said that several SMSes on the gathering were being circulated, with one stating that each Indian would get RM100,000 if the case was won.

He said MIC was worried that irresponsible people would take advantage of the gathering to create trouble.MIC Youth chief S. A. Vigneswaran said the SMSes were dangerous as they fanned racial hatred.

Meanwhile, police yesterday raided the Bangsar office of lawyer P. Uthayakumar, one of the leaders of Hindraf, in search of an allegedly seditious publication.City Criminal Investigation Department chief SAC II Ku Chin Wah said they had obtained a warrant to look for a publication titled 50 Years of Violation of the Federal Constitution by the Malaysian Government.

He said the action was related to a function held by Hindraf at the Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall last July.


Define Realistic? Very soon and the population drops 2% more, Indian will be under "Others" category.

REMEMBER this warning is for MIC only not for MALAYSIAN INDIANS.
IS MIC scared this guys are doing what they fail to defend and HINDRAF in getting more popular?
