Appology demanded from racist minister

Updates : Celebrating 50 years of Multi-Racial Nationhood

Just to share with you some updates on the remarks given by Dr.J, we were told by Dr. Sheela Moorthy that the press has met her in Boston to cover this issue. At the same time, Dato Seri Samy Vellu has shown his personal interest in this matter.

According to Bolehland, up to the date, complaints has already made to the following channels:

1. California Governor Mr.Arnold’s Office - who have advised on forwarding it to Senators etc.
2. Commision of Human Rights of USA
3. Malaysian Consulate LA
4. Various Cabinet Ministers of Malaysia
5. And other relevant people, busy bodies (like me) and you. ;p

Lim Kit Siang commented on this issue that Sheena Moorthy, a third-year Biotech Malaysian student in CALYPOLY, has formally written to the Prime Minister to complain against Jamaludin for the “totally uncalled-for racial insults”, citing the following instances:

Incident 1 - Each student had to briefly introduce themselves. When it came to her turn, while speaking he interrupted her and asked if she knew Samy Vellu, because he knows him. She did not see any relevance in that and he mentioned it a few times for no apparent reason.

Incident 2He gave a speech regarding how agriculture started in Malaysia. He mentioned how the British invested in Malaysia and made farmers work. Due to the lack of work force, “buruh India” was brought in. While mentioning this, he looked at her saying “that’s how we get Indians in Malaysia”.

Incident 3After saying he is going to get MARA to help the Bumiputra students, he looked at her and asked “How many Indians are here?” Sheena did not keep track of number of Indian students so she mentioned that in the room there were two (pointing to another Malaysian Indian friend, who is fair skinned) and Jamaludin looked at him and asked “Oh. You are an Indian? Which means you are an upper class Indian and she is the lower class one” (pointing at her). Jamaludin went on to say that, “Oh, I am not going to help upper class Indians, I only help the lower class ones. They are the ones that need it’.

This incident happened on 30th April 2007 @ 6.30pm at Belacan Grill Malaysian Restaurant, Redondo Beach, California - in front of a crowd of about 100 people including students, officials from the Malaysian Consulate, TPM, Tourism Malaysia, etc. But everyone is afraid and nobody is prepared to stand up to speak the truth. All right-thinking Malaysians should support Sheena’s demand for a public apology from Jamaludin.

The Blank Page will provide more informations as I get the updates from Sheela Moorthy herself or other related and relevant sources.

  • Seriously, who is this clown? Have I been THAT ignorant of local politics to have not heard his name being mentioned once?
    Anyway, my opinion: throw his ass in the frying pan, literally, or to be more realistic let him be judged by those "low-class" and "high-class" Indians he can identify so well.
    Fucking hell man... Who was the one who decided to put a narrow-minded-racist-clown as the Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation?! Fire him too!
    And they wonder why that ministry has yet to have a significant impact (a positive one) in this country!! Malaysia Boleh... BLAH!
