GEORGE TOWN: Hindraf Makkal Sakti chairman P Waythamoorthy and his family have received a death threat via email ahead of his briefing to US government officials on issues of institutionalised racism and freedom of religion in Malaysia.

In the email, the sender threatened to behead Waythamoorthy and his elder brother, Human Rights Party secretary-general Uthayakumar, and their children.

The sender, who signed his name as “Pekida Youth chief Hanif Haja”, racially abused both brothers and vowed to teach them a lesson. Pekida is an organisation linked to Umno.

Waythamoorthy said the threat would not dampen his spirit to seek social justice for the racially segregated minority communities, especially Indians, in Malaysia.

He even quoted Tamil poet, the late Subramaniya Barathiyaar: “Utchimeethu irunda vaanam viluntha pothilum, atchamillai, atchamillai, atcham enbathillaiye.” (I will not fear even if the dark sky falls).
“I am even willing to come back to Malaysia to continue my struggle if the government is prepared to return my passport,” he told FMT today.

The sender also claimed to be a Petronas staff working at Petronas e-Learning Solutions Sdn Bhd.

The email also contained three photos of the alleged Hanif Haja.
