Re : Self immolation of Puchong hindu devotee’s root cause is PKR, DAP and PAS denying state land to all hindu temples, cemeteries, Tamil schools and Indian villages.
We refer to the above matter and our numerous letters to your goodselves on the aforesaid matter including our public protest outside the PKR Headquarters in Tropicana on 7/3/10 but regretfully to no avail.
Section 76 of the National Land Code in effect empowers (100%) especially the PKR, DAP and PAS State governments of Selangor, Penang and Kedah to alienate state land for public purposes.
The B.N government in the previous 50 years has refused to grant state land to the poor Malaysian Indian hindu temples, cemeteries, tamil schools and Indian villages (but deemed squatters) as they had granted to all the Masjids, suraus, muslim cemeteries and Malay schools.
Hindraf gave the political directions and with 90% of the Indians voting for the Opposition, PKR, DAP and PAS became the ruling state governments in Selangor, Penang and Kedah on the promise of Change. But change has not been forthcoming despite PKR, DAP and PAS ruling Selangor, Penang and Kedah for over 2 ½ years now.
To add insult to injury, the UMNO/BN’s Indian mandore syatem of “kosong” and nothing in black and white land here and land there for hindu temples, cemeteries, tamil schools and Indian villages is continuing under the PKR, DAP and PAS said rule.
The UMNO/BN Selangor State government demolished the ancient Kg Karupaiah Padang Jawa hindu temple one week before Deepavali in 2007 and within months lost power in Selangor. But even the now PKR led Selangor state government has not granted a suitable land to rebuild this hindu temple. As usual it is the aforesaid usual ‘kosong’ promise of a land and that too under a hazardous Telecoms Tower mere Tamil newspaper announcement by the Selangor Indian Exco mandore and even than it is not in black and white.
There is a government reserve land next to this Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple. (see The Starmetro 9/11/10 at page M4). But as usual only a temporary piecemeal solution to temporarily relocate part of the temple to the state government reserve land next to this temple has been suggested by that too a mere PKR Councillor mandore despatched to the scene by the Menteri Besar of Selangor.
Why didn’t the PKR led Selangor State government relocate part of this hindu temple to this reserve land and grant land title thereto in the first place, for which there would have been no need nor necessity for this demolishment and self immolation in the first place.
Why these a la UMNO/B.N “temporary” and piecemeal solutions through the their Indian Exco and Councillor mandores. Why not a genuine and permanent land titles and gazetting the same accordingly solution.
On 15th September 2009. (Malaysiakinitoday) a Kampong Buah Pala Villager Madam R. Indirani had similarly attempted to self immolate herself by dousing herself with kerosene when the Penang DAP state government were demolishing Kg. Buah Pala the last traditional Indian village in Penang.
Yesterday’s self immolation by Chakra Guna (52) is only the tip of the iceberg of the Indian poor’s pain suffering and heartache in being denied permanent land for all their Hindu temples cemeteries, Tamil schools and Indian villages (deemed squatters) by especially the PKR, DAP and PAS state governments of Selangor, Penang and Kedah. Why go far? Even this SJK (T) Castlefield and this Srinivasa Perumal temple in issue here has been denied state government land to start off with.
Fear of losing malay muslim votes by granting the Indian poor land cannot possibly be a part of the change PKR, DAP and PAS had promised in the 8th March general elections. So where is the change?
Kindly therefore grant and alienate state land to all existing hindu temples, hindu cemeteries, tamil schools and Indian villages (deemed squatters) in the states of Selangor, Penang and Kedah for there to be a domino effect in the B.N ruled states.
To this effect we urgently seek an appointment with your goodselves to amicably resolve this long outstanding state government land problem to all the poor Malaysian Indians.
Secretary General (pro tem)
