柔人民之友工委严居汉 参与瓦达穆迪绝食行动 Young Chinese man joins Waytha’s strike

柔人民之友工委严居汉
参与瓦达穆迪绝食行动

万绕(3月15日):兴都权利行动力量(兴权会)最高领导人瓦达穆迪的绝食行动迎来了一名他预想不到的支持者——一位华裔青年。

严居汉是一个以柔佛州为基地的人权组织——“柔佛州人民之友”的一名积极分子。他坚信瓦达穆迪极力维护的目标是正义的,并决定参与他的行动。

这位兴权会领导人的绝食行动是在此间的一所兴都庙(Arulmigu Agora Veerabathirar Sanggili Karuppar Kovil)进行的。

严居汉于昨天早上9时抵达此庙,随即开始绝食,于今天早上结束他的绝食行动。

他表示,他参与绝食行动,不仅是支持瓦达穆迪,而且是支持兴权会为国内被边缘的少数民族争取权益的正义及非党性斗争。

他要向兴权会的批评者表示,兴权会是一个为解脱被压迫者困境而奋斗的人权组织,并不是种族主义者。

他告诉《自由今日大马》:“人民之友和兴权会都是追求改革的。我们这两个组织都要彻底把国阵抛弃到垃圾堆中去。这是我们的一贯立场。”

严居汉说,任何改革议程,却蓄意忽略、漠视和排斥一部分被边缘化的公民,是绝不会成功的。

瓦达穆迪的绝食行动的主要目的是要向国阵和民联施压,逼迫他们接受印裔族群的人权已被严重侵犯的事实。

与此同时,严居汉表示,比起国阵,民联更有责任或义务认可和签署《兴权会大蓝图》(因为已经没有理由再对国阵抱任何幻想)。

Young Chinese man joins Waytha’s strike
Athi Shankar | March 15, 2013

RAWANG: Hindraf supremo P Waythamoorthy’s hunger strike received support from an unlikely supporter, a young Chinese man. Nyam Kee Han, an activist of Johor-based human rights organisation, Sahabat Rakyat, was convinced that Waythamoorthy’s cause is justified and decided to join him.

The Hindraf leader’s hunger strike is taking place at the Arulmigu Agora Veerabathirar Sanggili Karuppar Kovil temple here.

Nyam arrived at the temple at 9am yesterday and ended his fast at same time today.

He said he joined the hunger strike not only to show his support to Waythamoorthy but also to Hindraf’s “just and non-partisan struggle” for marginalised minority communities in the country.

He wanted to show Hindraf’s critics that the human rights organisation was not racist and it was struggling for the down-trodden.

“Sahabat Rakyat and Hindraf are for change. We both want to dump Barisan Nasional once and for all. That’s always our stand,” he told FMT.

Nyam said any reform agenda could never be successful by ignoring, neglecting and sidelining a section of marginalised citizens.

The main purpose of Waythamoorthy’s hunger strike was to pressure Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat to acknowledge that human rights of ethnic Indians had been violated.

Meanwhile, Nyam said that the onus was more on Pakatan, compared to BN, to give recognition and endorse Hindraf’s blueprint.
