Hindraf leader being treated in Malaysian hospital

Everybody seems to get their share. Hindraf get their fair share in media coverage since day one. Anwar, a Cherok Tok Kun guy catapulted his stature as leader of all races even higher. MIC somehow being marginalised through this wicked political coup. It was a sad phenomena.

Like or not, issues on Indians are best handled through MIC. Hindraf yelled, Anwar shouted and everybody paraded, still it is going to be MIC to do the donkey job. MIC will scrutinise and list the issue and work it out through the government arm, I think.

I dont know if Uttayakumar is made in the mould of Irish Bobby Sands, born in Rathcoole North Belfast in 1954. Has he got the stamina to go the distance to the graveyard.?

Prominent ethnic Indian leader P Uttayakumar, currently detained under Malaysia's tough security law, is being treated for his illness at a government hospital, a top minister has said.

Human Resources Minister Dr S Subramaniam said he had been informed by the Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar that Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) leader Uttayakumar, a diabetic, had been receiving treatment at the Teluk Intan government Hospital.

Subramaniam said he hoped that the government would make arrangements if Uthayakumar need specialist treatment for his diabetes-afflicted foot.

His remarks came after Uthayakumar's supporters alleged that their leader is being treated improperly and they filed police complaint in this regard.

Police used water cannon to disperse about 200 of them near the Brickfields police station here last Saturday. Uttayakumar and four of his Hindraf colleagues have been detained under Internal Security Act since December 2007 for organising an illegal rally of ethnic Indians on November 25, 2007, which was attended by more than 20,000 members of the minority community to protest against alleged marginalisation of ethnic Indians in jobs and opportunities.

The government of Malaysia has denied the allegations.
