Gelombang kedua : 30,000 penyokong Hindraf berhimpun di KLCC


Kuala Lumpur : Kira-kira 30,000 orang menyertai perhimpunan di Menara Berkembar Kuala Lumpur selepas usaha mereka untuk menyerahkan petisyen kepada Suruhanjaya Tinggi British dihalang oleh tembakan gas pemedih mata dan semburan meriam air kimia.

Mereka cuba berhimpun di luar bangunan suruhanjaya tersebut awal pagi tadi tetapi mereka dihalang oleh anggota polis anti-rusuhan dan terpaksa berundur kira-kira dua kilometer dari tempat tersebut.

Orang ramai berkumpul di beberapa tempat di bandaraya. Kira-kira 10,000 orang berhimpun di Jalan Ampang, dekat Hotel Maya dengan 5,000 lagi berkumpul di Jalan P Ramlee berhampiran KLCC. Seramai 10,000 lagi berhimpun di persimbangan Jalan Tun Razak-Jalan Ampang. Kira-kira 5,000 lagi tersangkut di di Jalan Ampang dan Jalan Lingkaran Tengah.

Pada jam 10 pagi, orang ramai di sepanjang Jalan Ampang, dekat Hotel Maya mendengar ucapan pemimpin Hindraf termasuk P Uttayakumar. Turut berucap ialah Ketua Penerangan Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Tian Chua dan pemimpin DAP, Ronnie Liu.

Pada jam 10.30 pagi, pemimpin Hindraf selesai berucap. Bagaimanapun, ribuan orang terus berada di sekitar kawasan KLCC.

Bagaimanapun, pada jam 11 pagi, orang ramai bergerak dari KLCC ke kawasan berhampiran Suruhanjaya Tinggi British. Anggota polis anti-rusuhan berkawal di Jalan Ampang dan Jalan Tun Razak, di persimpangan berhampiran Ampang Park.

Pada jam 1 tengahari, selepas mengadakan rundingan dengan polis, ketua Hindraf, P Uttayakumar memberi ucapan ringkas dan menggesa orang ramai supaya bersurai secara aman. Mereka dilihat berjalan balik ke arah Jalan Sultan Ismail.

'Ini keterlaluan'

Pemimpin Hindraf, A Sivanesan mengecam tindakan polis yang menurutnya, telah menjadi Kuala Lumpur sebagai 'zon perang'.

Menurutnya, keadaan sudah tidak terkawal lagi dan beliau menyalahkan pihak polis. Beliau turut mendakwa bahawa polis memukul wanita dan kanak-kanak dan menyifatkan tindakan itu sebagai sudah melampau.

"Ia tidak akan menghalang kita untuk menyerahkan memorandum tersebut dan kita akan mencari jalan untuk melakukannya," katanya kepada Malaysiakini.

Peguam Haris Ibrahim, yang mengetui pasukan pemantau 10 ahli Majlis Peguam, terkejut dengan tindakan polis tersebut.

Beliau berkata, pihaknya tidak senang dengan cara polis menangani orang ramai.

Manakala Ahli Parlimen DAP, M Kulasegaran turut kesal dengan tindakan polis hari ini.

"Lebih 50 tahun masyarakat India dipinggirkan di negara ini. Dan kini kita mahu hak yang sama yang dinikmati oleh masyarakat lalin," katanya kepada AFP.

"Mereka tidak ada hak untuk menghalang kita untuk berhimpun hari ini. Ini adalah kehendak rakyat," tambahya.

Petisyen pada Ratu Elizabeth II

Perhimpunan hari ini diadakan untuk menyokong saman yang difailkan oleh Barisan Bertindak Hak Hindu (Bersih) terhadap kerajaan British kerana membawa rakyat India ke Malaysia sebagai buruh dan mengeksploitasi mereka selama 150 tahun.

Saman itu juga bertujuan mendapatkan pengisytiharan bahawa Laporan Suruhanjaya Reid 1957 gagal mengambilkira hak masyarakat India apabila memberi kemerdekaan, mengakibatkan mereka didiskriminasi dan dipinggirkan hingga hari ini.

Mereka menuntut pampasan AS$2 juta bagi setiap orang India yang tinggal di Malaysia.

Selepas memfailkan saman tersebut, Hindraf mengadakan majlis penerangan dil seluruh negara untuk menjelaskan kes tersebut kepada masyarakat India di peringkat akar umbi.

Hindraf turut terbabit dalam usaha menghalang perobohan kuil-kuil Hindu di negara ini dan mendapat sokongan besar daripada masyarakat India.

Memorandum yang mahu diserahkan hari ini adalah untuk menggesa Ratu Elizabeth II melantik peguam diraja untuk mewakili Hindraf dalam kes tersebut.

Malaysian police clash with ethnic Indians rallying for their rights
(Kyodo News)-

Malaysian police clashed with thousands of minority Indians who defied Sunday a ban against holding a rally to highlight their marginalization by the majority Malay-Muslim government.

Police began moving in from dawn to break up a crowd of around 5,000 who had started gathering in the Batu Caves, a sacred Hindu temple set amid a limestone cave just outside the Kuala Lumpur city center as they attempted to march towards the British Embassy.

The Indians, who make up about 8 percent of Malaysia's 27 million people, blame the British, who brought the Indians to British-occupied Malaya in the 19th century to work on rubber estates and build railroads, for their continued oppression and poverty.

Besides Batu Caves, supporters of rally organizer Hindu Rights Action Force, Hindraf, a relatively new grassroots movement, managed to stream into the city, gathering in and around the iconic Petronas Twin Towers in defiance of dozens of roadblocks mounted in various locations leading into the center.

Police fired several rounds of tear gas and chemical-laced water cannon into the throng in a futile attempt to disperse the crowd who retaliated by throwing rocks and the tear gas canisters back at the police.

The scene near the Petronas Twin Towers resembled a war zone, one witness told Kyodo News.

It was strewn with slippers and broken flower pots as protesters fled to seek shelter in nearby hotels and office buildings before reforming into the defiant crowd.

Other witnesses said some protesters were beaten and scores arrested.

T. Poobalan, one of the protesters, told Kyodo News he, like thousands of others, had gathered at Batu Caves from Saturday night.

But when they tried to march towards the British Embassy at dawn, police fired tear gas and water cannon at them.

At least one police was hurt in a scuffle with the protesters when he tried to arrest them, according to Poobalan.

"We merely wanted to hand a petition to the British High Commission. The police had no right to stop us or act so violently," he said.

Hindraf organized the rally to draw attention to their $4 trillion class-action lawsuit that was filed in London in August against the British government for abandoning the Indians when independence was granted to Malaysia in 1957 and forced them to be subjected to Malay-Muslim rule.

Hindraf is demanding compensation of about $2 million for every Indian in Malaysia and a grant of British citizenship as an "opportunity to escape any future discrimination, marginalization, oppression and suppression by the Government of Malaysia."

While many dismiss the suit as a publicity stunt, the underlying issues represent longstanding grievances among Malaysian Indians who possess neither the political clout of the majority Malays nor the economic clout of the Chinese who are the second largest ethnic group in the multiracial Southeast Asian country.

There has also been deep anger generated among the Indians by the recent demolitions of dozens of Hindu temples.

The Indians, who were mostly Tamils, are also unhappy over the dilapidated state of Tamil vernacular schools in the country.

Most cannot even get government funding.

They, like the Chinese, have begun challenging the continued implementation of an affirmative action policy that grants special privileges to Malays, including a greater admission quota to public universities and special access to government contracts.

The authorities had forbid the Sunday rally over that it would generate racial hate-mongering.

Under Malaysian law any public gathering of more than five people needs a police permit and the Indian protesters were not granted one.

In an unprecedented move, the police also obtain a blanket court order Friday restraining several Hindraf leaders and the public from attending the rally.

Also Friday, three Hindraf leaders, including lawyer Waythamoorthy Ponnusamy, were arrested and charged with sedition.

Waythamoorthy is in jail after he declined to post bail Friday to protest the refusal of the police to allow the rally to proceed.

Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak on Saturday accused Hindraf of trying to incite racial hatred.

"They can speak up but cannot break the law. If their speeches are seditious and instigative and can spark racial clashes, legal action will be taken against them," he warned.

The Sunday rally was the second protest in Kuala Lumpur this month.

A Nov. 10 rally organized by the opposition and human rights groups called for poll reform and it also met with a tough police backlash.

Roadblocks were also set up then but failed to prevent more than 10,000 people from turning up before police resorted to tear gas, water cannon, beatings and arrests to break up the throng.
