ISI Plan for ethnic cleansing of Hindus from India. Attempt to merge India-Pakistan into Greater Islamic Republic by 2030.

Pakistan proposed making India as Greater Islamic Republic of Pakistan by 2030.

Hindu Existence News Bureau , New Delhi || 30 December, 2011- Pakistan secret agency, Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) has revised its planning to reconvert India as an Islamic Country by joining it with Pakistan under a GREATER ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN within 2030.  Earlier they have fixed this target within 2020. This one can be somewhat funny to the reluctant and ignorant people of India under a political influence of absurd Indo-Pak friendship. But, Pakistan apparently has come with some new plans to destabilize India by influencing some developments in the north, west and southern parts of the country, as part of its multi-pronged strategy. Terrorists who were caught by Indian Security Force in Kashmir revealed this information. ISI (Pakistan’s intelligence agency) is the main culprit behind.
The map targets North India, and shows the region as a shadow of ‘Islamic Republic of Pakistan’ by 2020. It also projects South India as disputed territory and treats the Indian neighbors China (China has the responsibility of doing everything for Pakistan), Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka as their neighbouring countries. They also considered Andaman and Nicobar Islands of India as Islands of Bangladesh The map also indicates their desire of changing Mumbai’s topography, turning the South Asia’s economic capital Mumbai (Bombay) into ‘Muslimabad’ by 2012.
……………………………………………………………………………..
An article in the Power Politics magazine says that the ISI has passed two maps to the Pakistan Army to increase the moral of the troops by giving them a target to break and merge India in Pakistan forming Islamic Republic of Pakistan by2020. This will somehow increase the confidence of the public of Pakistan also who always dream of troubled India.
The terrorists are using alternative routes to India. From Pakistan they go to Dubai, Bangkok, Nepal and Bangladesh to enter India. The write up further says that ISI has been attempting to cover India both from sea and land routes just like the Chinese strings of pearl theory. ISI is already pushing fake Indian currency in to the Indian market thus creating a hole in the Indian economy.
Pakistan is time to time searching for chances and making excuses in front of the world to bring its force back to the Indian borders, currently under the pressure from U.S, they are fighting with insurgency near Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
………………………………………………………………………………………..
In a recent publication in Daily Express in Urdu from Pakistan the conspiracy of ISI was published as a summary report.  The ISI of Pakistan Government has its  heinous Plan to capture India by (1) Explosion of Muslim Population in India and Mass conversion of Hindus in Islamic faith, (2) Infiltration of Jihadi and Muslim populace into India from neighboring countries, (3) Spreading terror over the Indian Hindu population by Jihadi attacks,  (4) Oppression over Minority Hindu people and Capturing Hindu girls and women in Muslim majority areas, (5) Destabilize Indian economy through fake currency and parallel  Islamic Banking, (6) Putting ISI agents in Indian Strategic authorities, Defense system and General administration,  (7) Establishing 10 lac New Mosques and Madarshas  in Non Muslim areas to signify the Islamic influence in India, (8) Capturing  Indian print, electronic and entertainment  media at any cost, (9) Capturing all the Indian Political parties to have a absolute Islamic power in Indian Parliament and (10) To hoist  Islamic flag atop Lal Quila, President’s House, Indian Parliament and Supreme Court after getting a total control over India by Pakistan.With the points surfaced above the concerned India expert say that the General Election in India 2014 may be fatal to Hindus if they do not vote for a Hindu supremacy in India. Otherwise the ISI operators in various political parties will surely take such steps by which the Hindus will be debarred from their rights to enjoy their Hindu identity in their ancestral land.…………………………………………………………………………………..
In the published map of India in three phases ISI planned to capture entire Jammu and Kashmir, part of Punjab and Haryana within 2012. In the next phase Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan have been included in the Greater Pakistan within 2020 and finally the entire India is to included in the Greater Islamic Republic of Pakistan by 2030.
………………………………………………………………………………….

The case of destabilizing Hindustan by Pakistan has been taken by Indian Foreign Department seriously as reports came in. Earlier a plan of Mughlistan was surfaced to capture India by the conspiracy by the  Bangladeshi secret agency DGFI.

PAKISTAN: A lawyer from Hindu community is missing and police refuse to register the case claiming that the abduction of Hindus is of no consequence

ASIAN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION - URGENT APPEALS PROGRAMME
Urgent Appeal Case: AHRC-UAC-252-2011


30 December 2011
---------------------------------------------------------------------
PAKISTAN: A lawyer from Hindu community is missing and police refuse to register the case claiming that the abduction of Hindus is of no consequence
ISSUES: Disappearance; religious minority groups; impunity; rule of law
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear friends,
The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received information regarding that a lawyer belonging to the Dalit caste of Hindu minority community has been missing since December 23 when he was going to attend the Sindh High Court. His car was found abandoned at a Taxi stand with all court files in it. The high police officials of the district Hyderabad, Sindh province have refused to register the case. The police are also fighting on the jurisdiction of the concerned police stations to avoid filing the case. The abductors have asked for ransom of Rs. 10 million but still the police refuse to register the case and are also not investigating it as the abductions of Hindus are not a new thing and the routine business of Muslim fundamentalist groups.
It is feared by his family that he would be killed if he does not embrace Islam or pay the ransom.
The Hindu community remains under threats of abduction, forced conversion to Islam and persecution in the name of blasphemy since many years by the fundamentalist religious organizations that operate through their seminaries (Madressas). Most of the Madressas are not registered by the government but are free to operate with the patronage of the police.
CASE NARRATIVE:
Mr. Mohan Lal Menghwar, advocate, son of Karo Mal, resident of village Bhadisindhu, Chachro, district Tharparkar, Sindh province, was on the way to Sindh high court, Hyderabad bench, Hyderabad district, 56 kilometers away from his residence to attend the court proceedings. He proceeded in early morning at 5. 30 AM but when he did not reach the court it created a panic among the lawyers, clients and family members. In the evening at 7 PM local police informed the family that a car was found abandoned at Tando Jam taxi stand. When family members reached there they found the car of Mohan Lal and everything including the court files were there.

Police of three stations, Tando Adam, Tando Jam and Hyderabad, stopped the family members of the victim to file a First Information Report (FIR) and waited for the abductors' demand for ransom. After two days of his disappearance the police of Hyderabad district flatly refused to register the case. The district police officer says they would not file the case as one cannot say from which jurisdiction of which police station he was abducted. He told the family members that he was abducted from some other place and his car was put in the Tando Jam taxi stand therefore it is difficult to file the case.
Mr. Ladha Ram Sharma, the senior lawyer of the victim, has received a call from abductors for the ransom of Rs. 10 Million for his release. This was duly informed to the police who again refused to file the case. Police were taking the call of ransom very lightly and have yet to start its legal responsibility to act according the law. The police attitude is to accommodate the call of ransom.
It is alleged that provincial police know that he has been abducted by the Muslim religious groups who are operating freely in the areas of the Hindu population in the rural parts of the province through the seminaries. Forced conversion to Islam by the abduction of girls and their forcibly marriage to Muslims is common. The situation of abduction, rape and forced conversion has reached such a position that many Hindu families migrated to India among them are also Hindu legislators.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
Murders, kidnappings, looting of Hindu families are on high all around the Pakistan. They are selling their properties at cheap rates and wrapping up their businesses at the cost of big losses. In the recent months 37 Hindus have left Pakistan for India due to security reasons. Hundreds of Hindu families leave Pakistan for India or other countries every year to find safe places for them. Fear has spread among the Sikhs and Hindus of Pakistan after the atrocious beheading incident involving a young Sikh man because of his refusal to convert. Furthermore, the Pakistani State has failed to protect the rights of the religious minorities which has left them feeling helpless while living with daily fear. Since the Taliban fanatics identify Pakistani Hindus as people of India, it has left Pakistani Hindus feeling helpless and with a sense of homelessness because they feel that they are being pushed out of Pakistan and at the same time not readily being accepted into their original home country.

The Asian Human Rights Commission has estimated that every year more Christians and Hindus are forcibly converted to Islam. An activist and council member of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, Amarnath Motumal, stated that Hindus are targeted due to many local Muslims seeing them as kafirs (non-Muslims) and therefore of lower class as well as evil. Threats are commonly given by the dangerous kidnappers that if they are reported, the families will hear of their daughter’s death. Motumal said that the word “Hindu” has become an insult and almost a shame for all Hindus in the Islamic state of Pakistan because of impoverished state 90% of Hindu families live in. He addressed that the government and others in power are to blame for the lack of rights available to the Hindu community.
It is feared by his family that he would be killed if he does not embrace the Islam or pay the ransom of rupees ten million.
SUGGESTED ACTION:
Please write letters to the given authorities calling them to ensure the safe recovery of Mohan Lal advocate and prosecute the police officers of Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas and Tharparkar districts for their negligence to register the case and no investigation to apprehend the abductors. Also urge the authorities to initiate the inquiry in to the matter of continuous abduction and forced conversion to Islam in Sindh province and negligence of law enforcement agencies to stop the practice.
The AHRC writes a separate letter to the UN Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearance requesting them to intervention into this matter.

SAMPLE LETTER:
Dear ___________,
PAKISTAN: A lawyer from Hindu community is missing and police refuse to register the case claiming that the abduction of Hindus is of no consequence
Name of victim:
Mr. Mohan Lal Menghwar advocate son of Karo Mal, resident of village Bhadisindhu, Chachro, district Tharparkar, Sindh province,
Alleged perpetrators:
District police officers of Tharparkar, Mirpurkhas and Hyderabad districts, Sindh province
Date of incident: 23 December 2011
Place of incident: Sindh province
I am writing to voice my deep concern regarding the abduction of Mohan Lal Meghwar, a Hindu lawyer from Mirpurkhas, Sindh province, on December 23 and since then the Sindh police are refusing to register the FIR on the pretext that Hindus abductions are nothing new as they are happening as a routine business of Muslim seminaries.
I am informed that Mr. Mohan Lal Menghwar, advocate, son of Karo Mal, resident of village Bhadisindhu, Chachro, district Tharparkar, Sindh province, was on the way to Sindh high court, Hyderabad bench, Hyderabad district, 56 kilometers away from his residence to attend the court proceedings. He proceeded in early morning at 5. 30 AM but when he did not reach the court it created a panic among the lawyers, clients and family members. In the evening at 7 PM local police informed the family that a car was found abandoned at Tando Jam taxi stand. When family members reached there they found the car of Mohan Lal and everything including the court files were there.
The negligence of Sindh police can be judged that Police from three different stations of Tando Adam, Tando Jam and Hyderabad, stopped the family members of the victim to file first information report (FIR) and wait for the abductors' demand for ransom. After two days of his disappearance the police of Hyderabad district flatly refused to register the case. The district police officer says they would not file the case as one cannot say from which jurisdiction of which police station he was abducted. He told the family members that he was abducted from some other place and his car was put in the Tando Jam taxi stand therefore it is difficult to file the case.
It is shocking that Mr. Ladha Ram Sharma, the senior lawyer of the victim, has received a call from abductors for the ransom of Rupees 10 Million for his release. This was duly informed to the police who again refused to file the case. Police were taking the call of ransom very lightly and till yet not started its legal responsibility to act according the law. The police attitude is to accommodate the call of ransom.
According to my knowledge it is alleged that provincial police know that he has been abducted by the Muslim religious groups who are operating freely in the areas of Hindu population in the rural parts of the province through the seminaries. The forced conversion to Islam by abduction of girls and their forcibly marriage to Muslims are common. The situation of abduction, rape and forced conversion has reached such a position that many Hindu families migrated to India among them are also Hindu legislators.
I urge you to ensure the safe recovery of Mohan Lal advocate and prosecute the police officers of Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas and Tharparkar districts for their negligence to register the case and no investigation to apprehend the abductors. Also initiate the inquiry in to the matter of continuous abduction and forced conversion to Islam in Sindh province and negligence of law enforcement agencies to stop the practice.

Yours sincerely,

Hindraf: Four Hindu temples demolished in a week

(Malaysiakini) Four Hindu temples have been demolished in a span of one week, claims Hindu rights movement Hindraf.

They are the Om Sreee Kaliamman Hindu Temple at Batu Pekaka in Kedah, the Om Sreee Kaliamman temple and another unnamed temple, both located in Kapar, and the Sri Muneswarer temple in Kuala Lumpur.

When contacted, the movement’s political body Human Rights Party (HRP) information chief S Jayathas said the demolition occurred between 23 and 27 of this month.

“We are not making this up, they are all reported in Makkal Osai and Tamil Namban,” he said.

NONEThe most recent complaint, he said, was the demolition of Sri Muneswarer temple by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) “in collaboration” with its private landowner at Segambut Aman, Kuala Lumpur, “on or about” Dec 27.

Even though the temple sits on a private land, Hindraf has questioned DBKL’s involvement, pointing out that a High Court order is required for any demolition of the 55-year-old structure.

The Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC), Jayathas said, must investigate the alleged “abuse of power” by DBKL.

Devotees of the temple have lodged a police report on the same day of the demolition.

According to the devotees’ police report, “Hindu deities were smashed to pieces using sledge hammers, in contravention of Article 11 of the Federal Constitution”.

NONEHindraf is demanding that the land on which the temple was previously sited be acquired and two acres of the land be granted for the temple to be permanently located.

It is also demanding that action be taken against DBKL enforcement officers responsible for the demolition of the temple, on top of a RM1 million compensation.

Don’t forget Bersih reform demands, Anwar tells PSC

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 30 — Indelible ink alone does not guarantee fair elections, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim echoed today, urging the Parliament Select Committee (PSC) to consider all of Bersih’s reform demands.

The Opposition leader pointed out the electoral reforms group had various concerns still unaddressed by the special committee tasked to improve the current elections process.

“Pakatan Rakyat is committed and demands that the PSC also studies thoroughly all the demands brought by Bersih in ensuring a free and fair elections process,” Anwar (picture) said in a statement today.

The PKR defacto leader listed down a host of issues which the PSC needed to look at — including pushing for a freer media as well as open campaigning.

He said that government media agencies like RTM and Bernama should not “discriminate” PR parties in their daily news coverage and should instead aim to provide a more holistic coverage.

Anwar also lamented that the short campaigning period for elections, saying ten days was too brief for proper dissemination of information to voters.

He also stressed that there was a need to monitor the Election Commission (EC)’s commitment through a “free and fair” judiciary.

The PSC announced yesterday the use of indelible ink by February 1 next year — where a person is required to dip his or her left index finger in the liquid before being allowed to cast his vote. The ink lasts approximately 48 hours.

The PSC on ensuring a free and fair elections process was formed after the highly-contentious July 9 rally, which saw thousands of people marching in the streets of Kuala Lumpur demanding for immediate electoral reforms.

Karpal perplexed by CJ’s letter on ‘copycat’ judge

Karpal Singh says he wants a royal commission of inquiry and a tribunal set up to investigate the 'copycat' judge and is surprised by CJ's letter to him that there is no case against Malik.

PETALING JAYA: A perplexed Bukit Gelugor MP and veteran lawyer Karpal Singh has denied that he had asked for “copycat” judge Abdul Malik Ishak to be investigated.

“What I want is a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) and a tribunal set up under Article 125 (3) of the Federal Constitution to enquire into the plagiarism allegations against Malik under the laws that existed in 2000.

“For the record, I have not made any complaint to Chief Justice (Arifin Zakaria) in relation to misconduct on the part of Malik,” he said in a statement today.

Karpal was responding to a letter that he received from Arifin in which the latter stated that Karpal’s complaint had no merit and has been dismissed in accordance with Section 13 (1) of Judges’ Code of Ethics 2009.

According to Karpal, he had written a letter to Malik on Aug 22, indicating his intention to move a motion against him in Parliament under Article 127 for misconduct in relation to the plagiarism (matter).

“There was no reply from Malik. I wrote another letter to him on Sept 29 stating that as there was no response to my allegation, it left me with no alternative but to move a substantive motion against him.

“I also stated that I was extending the letter dated Aug 22 to the Chief Justice and president of the Court of Appeal Md Raus Sharif,” Karpal said.

CJ: Claim has no merit

Arifin, meanwhile, said the complaint linking Malik to plagiarising a Singapore court judgment in 2000 had no merit.

A statement from the Chief Justice’s Office issued by Arifin’s special officer I, Che Wan Zaidi Che Wan Ibrahim, said the decision was reached after investigations and a discussion with Raus.

“The CJ carried out an investigation. Based on his findings and after discussing with the Court of Appeal president in accordance with Section 13(1) of the Judges Code of Ethics 2009, the CJ is of the opinion that Karpal’s allegations of plagiarism by the Appeal Court judge has no merit and the complaint is hereby rejected,” said Che Wan Zaidi.

He said the CJ received a complaint letter dated Sept 29, 2011, from Karpal which claimed that an Appeal Court judge had plagiarised the judgment of a Singapore court judge.

Karpal had been officially informed of the matter in a letter from the CJ’s office, said Che Wan Zaidi.

‘Malik has seven days’

Karpal said that he received a reply from the CJ on Oct 13 asking for “more specific information” in relation to his allegations.

“I responded (to the CJ) by a letter dated Oct 27 stating that the law minister at that time, Rais Yatim, had publicly stated that he knew about the allegations of plagiarism and was aware of the investigations (by the Singapore judiciary),” he said.

Karpal added that on Dec 7, he had again written to the CJ indicating that the parliamentary motions that he put up against Malik had lapsed (on Dec 1) and that “he had no alternative but to seek other measures”.

Abdul Malik Ishak“Following this, I wrote an open letter dated Dec 27 to Malik (photo) calling upon him to step down or
file a suit against me for defamation.

“I gave him seven days to reply, failing which I would take it as a public admission that he was guilty of plagiarism,” said Karpal.

Karpal had in October revealed that the Singapore judiciary had identified Malek as having plagiarised the judgment of Singapore High Court judge GP Selvam in 2000.

Malik was found to have copied Selvam’s judgment on a copyright case while serving as Johor High Court judge in 2000.

Karpal had earlier in Parliament called for Malik’s immediate resignation, saying it would save the Malaysian judiciary from further embarrassment. Malik is currently a Court of Appeal judge.

‘Minister’s aide punched me’

A NGO leader claims that the human resources minister's aide assaulted him in the presence of MIC Youth chief T Mohan.

KUALA LUMPUR: A NGO leader has alleged that an aide to the human resources minister assaulted him last night.

S Gobi Krishnan, president of little known People’s Rights and Welfare Coalition (Power), said the private secretary to Dr S Subramaniam and MIC Youth exco, who is also named S Subramaniam, punched him repeatedly in the face.

“At about 11.50 while I was having drinks with MIC Youth chief T Mohan, his wife and others at a coffee house in Seri Pacific hotel… he punched me in the face and head four times and I suffered injuries on my cheek till I bled, my lips were bruised,” stated Gobi in his police report lodged today.

Gobi said his spectacles broke, his shirt button came off and his watch was also damaged as a result of the attack.

The NGO leader said he believed the attack stemmed from his previous claim that the same Subramaniam holds a fake degree as the Kensington University was de-registered in 2003 by the Hawaiian authorities.

Gobi’s claim was published in FMT in July and the minister had promised to probe the matter.

He alleged that the appointment of Subramaniam as private secretary was recommended by Mohan and endorsed by Dr Subramaniam.

Recounting his ordeal at a press conference, Gobi said:”While I was chatting with Mohan, he had asked me why I always criticised him in public and I answered that was what a ‘pro-rakyat’ NGO should do.”

He claimed that while he was talking to Mohan, Subramaniam suddenly rushed to him and started attacking him. He added that others at the scene quickly pulled Subramaniam away.

Gobi said he wanted MIC president G Palanivel and the party’s disciplinary body to take stern action against those involved.

‘I just slapped him’

Contacted later, Subramaniam said: “I didn’t punch him, I just slapped him, that’s all. And no, not four times, two times only.”

Asked why he did so, the minister’s aide said it was because Gobi provoked him and that was what caused the clash.

“At first I wanted to shake hands with him. He started mocking me saying ‘there, MIC goons are coming’. This is one problematic man, he causes problems wherever he goes,” he said.

On his alleged fake degree, Subramaniam said that was no longer an issue.

Minister: 6P not a free ride

Dr S Subramaniam says the amnesty programme must not be mistaken as a 'free ride' and employers must be prepared for their foreign workers to be sent back after two years

KUALA LUMPUR: Foreign workers who have just been legalised as well as their employers have been warned that the 6P amnesty programme is not a “free ride” to work in Malaysia but just a temporary measure.

The government’s end goal is still to reduce foreign workers in the country and many will be sent back after the two-year period currently given to illegal foreign workers, Human Resources Minister Dr S Subramaniam said.

He advised employers to keep that in mind and take steps to ready themselves of the impending reduction of the foreign workforce.

“People have to realise that after this legalisation, it is not going to be a permanent change of government policy. It is temporary. At the end of the two years, many won’t be given continuity (to work),” Subramaniam told FMT.

He said many of the workers that are now allowed to work will have to be sent back to their countries after two years.

“Beyond that, they (employers) have to prepare and restructure themselves, to ensure they can rely on locals and other possible mechanism so that they will reduce dependancy on foreign labour,” he added.

Subramaniam said the government’s move to allow foreign workers in 10 new sectors and 11 sub-sectors is unprecedented and employers also must not expect that to be continued.

Earlier this week, Home Ministry secretary-general Mahmood Adam announced the decision of the government to relax conditions for legalisation of illegal immigrants under the 6P exercise. (The 10 new sectors open to immigrants are croupier, mining/quarrying, mangrove wood, stall/cafe/ canteen/catering, restaurant, fastfood, grasscutter, newspaper vendor, house and vehicle cleaners and car workshop workers.

The 11 sub-sectors in the service industry now open for them to be legally employed are scrapmetal, cargo handling, welfare home, spa/reflexology, hotel, golf caddy, laundry, barber, goldsmith, wholesale and retail and textile business.)

‘Chopping block’

According to Subramaniam, those in the new sectors take up an estimated 300,000 to 400,000 of the total 1.3million illegal foreigners that have been registered under the 6P programme.

“But after two years, this is when the chopping block must be put in. When their visas expire, they will be sent home. So both the worker and employer should know that from today itself, that the government is not opening up for good,” he said, adding that the process to control the workers then would be the greatest challenge for the government.

However, the minister said the traditional sectors where foreign workers are allowed to work, such as plantations and factories, will be retained.

Asked about a recent report alleging that Home Ministry’s sudden move to do-away with the requirement for approval by the Human Resources Ministry had “totally bypassed” his ministry, Subramaniam said his ministry gave the approval for the decision.

FMT had reported that the issue caused confusion when 6P agents received news that there is no longer a need for a JobsMalaysia (formerly known as Jobs Clearing System) certificate issued by the Human Resources Ministry.

Previously only with the JobsMalaysia certificate can a foreign worker be “legalised” by the Home Ministry.

“The Home Ministry wants to resolve this legalisation process as quickly as possible and they want to cut down on the number of steps involved so that it will easier, so we agreed in principle,” said Subramaniam.

He added that there are still ongoing discussions on how the Human Resources Ministry can keep track of the documentation of legalised workers despite the abolishing of the JobsMalaysia certificate requirement.

“We still want a record of all these people for monitoring purposes and managing these numbers.We will work out something so that our needs and their needs are fulfilled,” he said.

However, Subramaniam said since the whole idea of 6P is to first legalise all workers before the greater process of gradually sending them back takes place, he admitted that having the JobsMalaysia cert may be redundant.

JobsMalaysia’s function is to ensure that human resources, both local and foreign, are utilised most optimally. It will ensure that employers exhaust all means to obtain local work before approving foreigners to work, in accordance to certain ratios and quotas decided by the government.

He said after this “legalisation” is over, any new intake of foreign workers, or permit renewals, will still need to go through the normal process of recruitment via JobsMalaysia. Currently, foreign worker intake is freezed till Jan 15.

Asked on comment on the daily “chaotic” situation at the Putrajaya immigration centres, Subramaniam said it is understandable due to the huge numbers of foreign workers and the limited number of centres open.

“The deputy prime minister is aware and they should sort it out quickly so that the process is much smoother. That is virtually expected because the numbers are huge,” he added.

Chaos at immigration centre

Yesterday, FMT reported that the Putrajaya immigration centre was in chaotic state as employers, 6P agents, and foreign workers rushed en-masse to go through the legalisation process.

Later yesterday, the Home Ministry announced that more centres, which will be now run 24-hours, will be opened.

Bernama online reported that only 120,000 of the total of 1.3 million illegal foreign workers in the country have registered under the 6P programme. The deadline is on Jan 10.

Under the 6P programme, announced last June, illegal foreign workers will either be legalised or deported without punishment. The six Ps represent the Malay words for registration, legalisation, amnesty, monitoring, enforcement and deportation.

By Aug 31, according to Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein, 1,016,908 legal foreign workers and 1,303,126 illegals have been registered using the biometric system under the first phase of 6P. The second phase—legalisation—began in October.

The programme has been controversial from the start. There have been numerous complaints that it is open to exploitation by unscrupulous parties.

Critics said it has spawned bogus agents, opened the opportunity for management companies to overcharge their clients and encouraged legal foreign workers to abscond from their employers.

It’s a total lie, screams Jerit

The network disputes the explanation by G-Team Resources regarding the housing offer for the residents of Tumbuk Estate.

PETALING JAYA: The Oppressed People’s Network (Jerit) has refuted G-Team Resources’ claim that Maika Holdings Bhd shelved the housing project for Tumbuk Estate near Banting because the residents were indecisive over who should get the corner lot.

“This is a total lie as there was no such incident as drawing lots and choosing the corner lot. The only issue was the location of the houses,” said Jerit spokesperson S Arutchelvan.

“Maika proposed several sites but the ex-workers wanted houses near the Tamil school and the temple. That was the only condition then and it seems very reasonable,” he added.

Arutchelvan was responding to a Dec 24 report in FMT which quoted G-Team Resources chief operations officer T Tamil Selvan.

Tamil had explained the firm’s offer of RM25,000 or houses for the ex-workers.

Arutchelvan asked why G-Team’s owner and shipping tycoon G Gnanalingam came to the estate to make the offer to build the houses if the project had been shelved by Maika as claimed by Tamil.

“A week after Maika was taken over by G-Team, Gnanalingam himself came to the estate and told the ex-workers that he will fulfil the demand and build houses but less than three months after that Tamil came to the estate and told the workers that because of three caveats by Nesa Coorperative Society (linked to former MIC deputy president S Subramaniam), it will take 10 years or more to build the houses.

“So he pushed them to accept the RM25,000 and vacate the estate,” he said.

Water woes

On the issue of unpaid water bills, Tamil had said G-Team was only required to pay RM550 due to an agreement signed by Maika in 2006 before G-Team took over the estate.

Commenting on this, Arutchelvan said G-Team must fulfill their verbal agreement for individual meters and regulate the bills to housing rates.

He pointed out that since G-Team had to pay RM25 per family and Selangor provided 20 cubic meters of free water, the residents should be receiving free water.
If they do not get free water, Arutchelvan said
G-Team must provide adequate drinking water as stipulated in the Minimum Housing and Amenities Act 1990.

Another issue disputed by both Jerit and G-Team was the number of people who opted for the houses.

Tamil had claimed that only eight families, and not 14 as reported before, took the option. The remaining six, he said, failed to prove that they were eligible for the houses.

Arutchelvan explained that of the 14, two had accepted the cash option but still wanted the houses.

“There are also four workers who had retired then (when the offer was made) but they were still staying in the estate houses. Therefore they are genuine ex-workers and not illegals,” he said.

Arutchelvan said the four could not raise the advance sum of RM10,000 each to be included in the scheme.

According to him, the four were then informed that they could apply for the houses at special rates after construction.

Jerit’s stand on the plight of the four was that they had contributed to the plantation industry and the nation, hence they deserved to receive the houses.

On the RM201,000 ex-gratia payment that was missing from Maika Holdings, Arutchelvan said that the issue should be investigated by the police and Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC).

Special police team to probe dumping of pig heads at mosque

(Bernama) - A special team has been set up by Johor police to investigate the dumping of several severed pig heads in plastic bags near the Al-Falah Mosque in Taman Desa Jaya here.

State police chief Datuk Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said the pig heads were found by the mosque's congregation early Friday when they turned up for the dawn prayers.

"The team, which is headed by Johor deputy police chief Datuk Ismail Yatim, will seek the culprits until they are found," he said.

Mokhtar, who visited the scene of the incident, urged all parties to be patient, refrain from speculating about the incident and not to take the law into their own hands.

The mosque's committee chairman, Kassim Darim, 62, said residents in the area initially found a plastic bag believed to contain pig parts near the rear fence of the mosque at 5pm Thursday.

He said it was the first time such an incident had occurred in the area.

A police report was lodged at the Desa Cemerlang Police Station, he said.

Meanwhile, about 100 people, including from non-government organisations, held a peaceful gathering in front of the mosque to protest against the act.

Article 153 is not just for Malays but for every Malaysian!


http://media1-cdn.malaysiakini.com/426/591e7018ab66ca4a6130e673a71b8581.gifThe simple meaning is that the Agong is the protector of ALL Malaysians, and not just the Malays! So why do leaders like Ibrahim Ali keep harping on this Article 153 as if it is a sacred provision for the Malays only? Are they idiots who can’t read?
By Daniel John Jambun
Datuk Ibrahim Ali just came up with a gem of truth when he said there is no need for a Race Relations Act if people behave. “If everyone behaves, if nobody touches on (Article) 153, nobody questions this and that, condemns this and that, and at the same time recognises the disparity of wealth between Malays and non-Malays, I don’t think we need any additional Act,” he said. How very true!
 
Out of so many idiotic statements we have heard from political jokers, this one is a real gem of truth. The funny thing is that Ibrahim thinks he said something very brilliant when in fact it is simple truism (truth that doesn’t need to be said). Yes, we wouldn’t need any law for that matter if everyone behaves. We wouldn’t need the police, the security guards, the magistrates and judges, nor the prisons if there were no criminals. We wouldn’t need the Speaker in Parliament if every Member of Parliament can behave and not become rowdy or insensitive comedians making fun of women.
 
But who are really behaving badly in Malaysia? Who are those questioning this and that, condemning this and that? I guess only Ibrahim is the luckiest guy in the country because he makes all sorts of seditious and racist statements, misbehaving in a way that he should be arrested and charged in court, but nobody touches him, no national leaders even dare to ask him to shut up. Of the Race Relations Act he said that “We will see the draft of the Act. If it is good for the country, we have no problem supporting it,” he said. “But whatever Act is introduced ... it must not encroach upon (Article) 153, Islam as the official religion of the Federation, Bahasa Melayu as the national language, the sovereignty of the Malay Rulers.”
 
We all know that there is no question about Islam being the official religion, Bahasa Melayu as the national language or the sovereignty of the Malay Rulers. What I would precisely prefer to talk about is Article 153. It is very tiring to keep hearing political leaders speak about Article 153 as if it belongs only to the Malays.
 
If we read the article in its entirety we will be reminded very clearly that it is not a protection for Malay rights, and neither has it got to do with any so-called social contract. It says that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is responsible for safeguarding the special position of the Malays AND the natives of Sabah and Sarawak, AND the legitimate interest of other communities. The simple meaning is that the Agong is the protector of ALL Malaysians, and not just the Malays! So why do leaders like Ibrahim Ali keep harping on this Article 153 as if it is a sacred provision for the Malays only? Are they idiots who can’t read? Or are they stubborn morons who deliberately behave like idiots for the purpose of making political mileage over something that has nothing to do with what they are saying?
 
I fully support Senior Christian leader Reverend Dr Eu Hong Seng who said that Article 153 had been used to bully others, and that it was something that “needed somebody to say it.” He told an online portal he had nothing to fear despite the fierce reaction from various Malay groups and denials by the government that Christians or any minority group had been sidelined. He described Perkasa’s call for him to be investigated for sedition an example of fear-mongering. It is time somebody said and stood up bravely about it. The Deputy Prime Minister hit back and said the provision was never used to bully anyone. But has he not heard radicals like Ibrahim Ali abusing the provision all the time? How do the non-Malays feel when radicals talk about Malay supremacy or when the DPM himself said he is a Malay first and Malaysian second?
 
The radical groups who idolize Article 153 as if it gives the Malays special rights, privileges, positions and bullying power need to be told to stop the negative attitude. What I see in the Article is something very positive for Malaysians as a whole because to me it is a strong unifying provision, under which we are protected by our King as equal partners in Malaysia. It is NOT a provision to give the Malay superior position. It doesn’t give the Muslim the right to bully other people and other religions. Under this provision the Malays have equal “special position” with the natives of the Borneo States. Under it, the Malays are on equal position with the Ibans, the Penans, Bajaus and the Kadazandusuns. We have the same special position of the Malays, so we can tell the Malays like Ibrahim Ali to shut up and grow up if we want to.

Virtual School Concept To Be Introduced In Two Years - Muhyiddin

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 30 (Bernama) -- Parents can keep track of their children's education via the virtual concept to be introduced in schools in two years, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Set to be implemented as pilot project in some schools next year, it will among others, allow parents to interact with school authorities via video conferencing.

"We are at pilot stage of virtual learning concept modeled after developed countries like South Korea," he told reporters after a surprise visit to Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Taman Tun Dr Ismail, here Friday.

Muhyiddin visited South Korea last year to check out the education system using information communication technology (ICT) and National Education Information System (NEIS), a computer network connecting all schools.

With NEIS, parents could gather more information on their children's educational performance by communicating directly with teachers online.

"Based on this information, parents can reach teachers directly for advice based on the students performance," said the education minister.

The network allows parents to monitor children's development at school and communicate with teachers on the Internet.

Earlier, he said parents should be involved in the schooling system as it has been proven that their involvement has brought success.

"In the many countries visited, I was first greeted by parents and not teachers, like in Australia. When asked, parents told me 'we come here to help our schools because our kids are here."

Muhyiddin stressed that history showed that only education could change the fate of the people and nation.

"During independence, 70 percent of the people were poor. They were schools but the colonialists did not offer assistance.

"After independence, we found a solution in education to help the people escape povery which has since been reduced."

He said under the Barisan Nasional (BN) government many fields are now being controlled by Malaysians, all becuase of quality education.
