Yours Sincerely,HINDRAF Uthayakumar - 100 days under ISA Detention

Mr.P.Uthayakumar had this message to convey to all HINDRAF supporters on the 100th day of ISA arrest and detention. The message was relayed to a close family member and I had prepared his message in a written form to reflect what he himself would have written had he be given the chance. --P. Waytha Moorthy--


Message from P.Uthayakumar

100 days under ISA Detention – P.Uthayakumar

Today is the 100th day of my arrest and detention under the ISA at Kamunting Prison, Taiping (Kemta).I woke up early in the morning and only got to see the moon at 7am when the lock up doors were open. We are locked up about for 15 hours a day from 7pm to 7am and from 11.30am to about 2.30pm. My spirits are manageable thus far. I have never regretted that my struggle has caused me my freedom and being locked up in prison.

This is my contribution to the Malaysian Indian struggle which has been cheated by the Government for 50 years. We have remained a permanently colonized community without realizing it all these while. Now that every Malaysian Indian realises this and are willing to struggle for their “freedom” against the oppression of Malaysian Government we have no choise but to continue with the struggle. I am proud to belong to a generation who woke up against the injustices committed by the state.

The biggest satisfaction after being locked up is to see the BN being denied their two thirds majority and 5 states plus F.T. falling out of the hands of the BN. The UMNO leader who demolished the largestnumber of Hindu Temples ruthlessly, Khir Toyo was punished and so were the other UMNO leaders in their states.


I am regularly informed about HINDRAF’s Makkal Sakthi wave and spirit and people praying for us. People getting arrested and beaten up, fighting for our freedom. I offer my prayers to them and their families . I hear of the hundreds of prayer meetings at temples and other gatherings for us. Please continue fighting. We never stood up for our rights over the last 50 years.

Now that we have started, we shall not stop fighting against all forms of racism and religious extremism, equality and equal opportunities for all, especially for the Malaysian Indians.

It doesn’t matter how long the Government decides to lock me up but the most crucial point is we must fight and demand for our rights. 50 years of injustices are enough. Lets do it for our future generations.


The struggle goes on.

Nottingham University UK, Malaysia campus has cheated my PhD award.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I’m Nachimani Charde, was a PhD student of University of Nottingham UK, Malaysia campus until April 2012. Pls understand one thing that any PhD viva voce exam has to be conducted within 3 months of time according to the Quality Manual of the Nottingham University UK. In my case, initially they delayed 1 year and wrongly selected the examiners. Then later they announced that the viva voce exam was invalid. As for the second time, they delayed another 1 year and 9 months. Now they are saying that the viva is unacceptable and I have to take another viva voce exam. During this confusing situation, I have reported to Prof.Christine Ennew (number 1 of Nottingham Univ. Malaysia Campus). She did not stop the exam immediately and asked me to hold on because she was discussing this matter with Vice chancellor. Eventually the Vice chancellor asked me to complete the procedures and submit the thesis but when the exam results came out; they again say it is invalid. This is what makes me unhappy and I sent several emails to Vice Chancellor but no reply. So I bring this matter to social media and also to MOHE. I want to know why the Vice Chancellor asked me to submit my thesis and the exam out is against his decision? When I checked with external examiner who examines me, she said that she has approved the amendment and I passed the exam. Why there is conflict in this matter? I want answers for this situation from vice Chancellor, until then I will keep all my 5 web pages and 5 blog alive in internet. Actually it is Nottingham University UK, Malaysia campus has different PhD procedure than the UK one. So they are not procedurally same and practicing dual standards.

The following link shows the PhD exam procedure of Nottingham University UK.

However, this link shows the PhD exam procedure of Nottingham University UK, Malaysia campus (UNMC), only for Faculty of Engineering.

Why there is double standard ? is the UNMC guide for PhD exam procedure approved by Nottingham University UK senate? The answer is no. That’s why I fighting against them now. I have published 20 journal papers and three times written my thesis but still the exam is invalid!
