Malay-Muslim Protesters threaten bloodshed over Hindu temple

via HK published on August 29, 2009

HINDRAF (Hindu Rights Action Force) condemns the latest incident involving the act of placing a severed cow’s head outside the gates of the state secretariat building in Selangor.

HINDRAF believes UMNO (United Malay National Organization) and their cohorts in the Royal Police Force (PDRM) organized this act that is inflammatory with an intention to incite and create racial
hatred and feelings between the Muslims and Hindus.

These perpetrators were able to walk over 300 metres in open public
and conduct their seditious speeches calling openly for bloodshed, and
racial chaos without any interference from the police force. So far
nothing has been done by the PDRM or the AG’s department other than
issuing lip service statements.

Selangor Police chief Khalid Abu Bakar states “If a report is lodged,
we will definitely take the necessary action,”. Here we
are talking about an outright and outrageous act in fanning racial
hatred that could threaten the public security and he claims he needs
a police report before an action can be taken.

The police had on many previous occasions brutally arrested and questioned peaceful protesters without any reasons for fear of public security, but they would need a report
before they can take any action for those inciting violence and parading in the public with a severed cow’s head to undermine the sensitivity of the Hindus. This is absurd
and nonsensical.

Who else could practice such double standard other the UMNO led
government and its stooges and that is why HINDRAF believes that this
is the work of the UMNO government to create unrest in Selangor.

There is no distinction between a muslim dominated area and non muslim
dominated area as Malaysia is one multiracial and multicultural
society living together side by side in co-existence in respect of each other’s race,
religious practice and beliefs.

Instead of promoting harmony amongst Malaysians, UMNO is fast becoming
the public threat by protecting such devious and extremist acts.

UMNO should curtail such irresponsible acts rather than seeding and
sowing hatred, bullying extremist elements and fascist mindset amongst
the fanatical Muslims for their own political survival.

PM Najib has to immediately issue a statement and make a firm stand on
the subject and not delegate this paramount duty to his “mandores” and
eventually hoping for the whole issue to be swept under the
carpet.

If the AG’s department fails to charge these perpetrators, HINDRAF
would proceed to formally lodge complaints with the UN Human Rights
Council, European Parliament, UK Foreign affairs select committee and
the Global Human Rights Defence based in The Hague.

In solidarity for a harmonious Malaysia Hindraf calls upon all peaceful citizens who respect and cherish Religious Freedom and the right to co-exist to join us on a peaceful candle vigil at Dataran Merdeka on 5th September 2009 at 6.45pm
