INDIANMUSLIM LEADERS THINK INDIANMUSLIM WOMEN AS SEX OBJECTS

At the function, Najib also launched three new organisations formed under the auspices of Kimma, namely Yayasan Kemajuan Islam Nasional (YAKIN), Malaysian Indian Muslim Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Koperasi KIMMA Berhad.

Our prime minister also reminded Kimma to adopt an attitude of inclusiveness and ensure it continued to remain strong.

He said he was proud to note Indian Muslims in the country were able to be united although their numbers exceeded 600,000 people and also thanked them for their contributions towards the growth of the nation particularly in the field of entrepreneurship.
“If the community splits up into smaller and bigger groups, it will be difficult for us (Umno) to refer to one body which is recognised as the rightful representative of the Indian Muslim community,’ he said.
He also urged the community to capitalise on opportunities available under the government’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) to forge further ahead.
Men think, while women desire.’ Gone are the days when ‘demanding sex’ was considered exclusively a man’s forte. Today women demand sex greater than men. And they have no qualms about getting vocal about it. “I read these funny E-mail forwards that stress on men begging for sex and women denying it. It sounds so funny to me. It’s totally the opposite in my case. While men can have a good laugh over it believing that this notion exists, I literally have to seduce my husband to get him hooked on to the act,” quips production assistant Megha Mehra.

MEN THINK OF WOMEN AS SEX OBJECTS, STUDY PRELUDE TO OUR NEXT ARTICLE ON THE CONFESSION BY SWEET ANAK MAMI GIRL WHO WAS SEXUALLY HARASSED AT WORKPLACE A TRAVEL AGENCY
‘Men think, while women desire.’ Gone are the days when ‘demanding sex’ was considered exclusively a man’s forte. Today women demand sex greater than men. And they have no qualms about getting vocal about it. “I read these funny E-mail forwards that stress on men begging for sex and women denying it. It sounds so funny to me. It’s totally the opposite in my case.

We spoke to women from different backgrounds to figure out what is making them addicted to sex.
It’s physically pleasurable
Amongst all the other reasons to remain glued to sex, this is the most prominent one. Good sex satisfies your physical urge, which is very normal for anyone to experience. Psychologist Seema Naina opines, “Sex is the most basic need of any person. And I am increasingly getting cases where women are complaining that men are unable to satisfy their physical needs.”
Creates positive feelings about oneself
Ideally, great sex means you are enjoying the sexual act and participating equally. It makes you feel good about yourself, thus adding to your self esteem. Shares housewife Neelam Nehra, “When my husband comes back from a whole day at work and we have our sack session, it increases my self esteem. The very feeling that I am able to satisfy him is a great pleasure. And since I never want to go out of shape to look unappealing to my husband (and other men), it even acts as a motivation to work out and feel desirable.” Wondering why?
“Sex has healing powers. It generates positive emotions and makes one feel more confident. When a woman sees her man passionate in the act, admiring her body and moves, it infuses a lot of good feelings within her,” opines psychologist Sunaina Bajaj.
Brings them closer to their man
Physical intimacy releases hormone Oxytocin, which is also known as the love hormone. Agrees relationship expert Vandana Mitra, “I have always maintained that couples should never take sex casually. It’s a very important ingredient for any relationship to sustain. It helps couples to nurture the relationship and strengthen the bond.” So whoever said having more sex with your partner means lesser cases of infidelity, made sense.READ MORE CLICK THIS Infidelity, marriage and attraction.Marriage is a beautiful emotion and in MALAYSIA,
Believe it or not. Men are born beasts, but a majority of them aren’t bestial. Be it fornication, adultery, consensual sex, rape, sex without love or call it what you may. Biologically oriented to be easily excited, giving vent to their pent-up carnal urge comes naturally to them. Alas, the animal instinct in their DNA nudges them to get into the physical at the slightest pretext, provocation or titillation, real or imaginary. They may be rich or poor, young or old, rustic or sophisticated, the trait of promiscuity is common to them all. Their end-aim is to consummate what they might initiate as it’s-all-too-innocuous. Mind you, they generally don’t get beastly in public, but in private they do.
However, in the absence of the mandatory green signal from the opposite sex, they dare not even touch a whore soliciting them in the dark alleys let alone their maid or paramour within the confines of their home or hearth. So, whatever the legal status of Shiney Ahuja case, the truth behind what appears to be transparent but is actually opaque is known only to the two persons concerned. They, and they alone, know the naked truth. The rest, including the legal eagles, speculate in the realm of the surreal.
I for one don’t defend the indefensible, the accused in this case, but I add a caveat that taking all that the victim says at its face value would be a travesty of justice. We are, neither morally nor legally, qualified to condemn the prisoner to death before the case is decided on the basis of its legal merits. Nobody is above the law but at the same time everybody is entitled to a free and fair trial. Public opinion snowballing into an outcry that the accused be sent to the gallows pending a just trial merits no consideration.
Let us be brutally frank about it. When was it last that you didn’t ogle a pretty, young lady with your eyeballs popping out to have a look over your shoulder when she is past you?. Must have been just a couple of minutes or hours ago, I suppose. You, indeed, would be a hypocrite if you denied having had such an amorous look at the anterior or the posterior of the diva who passed you by. At a public forum you would vehemently denounce such an attitude as socially unacceptable, bohemian — a behavioural aberration which needed to be shunned and the person concerned castigated. In private, however, the animal instinct in the man would come to the fore(play) and advances of the baser kind follow as a corollary. Howsoever abominable, every one of us at one time or another has behaved in that cussed a manner.
But you don’t stretch your fascination or the epicurean urge to the extent of being a psycho so as to force someone into the act against her wish. That’s where you ought to draw the line between the voyeurist — that a man by nature is — and the evil rapist. And worse, if the escapades don’t stop at that you are most likely to end up as a serial stalker like Jack the Ripper or our neighbourhood gentleman-turned-Nithari-serial-killer. They, too, must have been the ordinary folks just like any of us before their lust overtook them and the well-meaning psychological self got transmutated into the psychopathic. That is where the behavioural anomaly gets better of the the once-disciplined self. The same holds true in the case of the young teenagers who go on a killing spree in US schools, or back home where a young man in a fit of rage fatally pushes off the terrace his spouse and mother. Or a young woman, blinded by the passion of physical proximity to her paramour, hacks into pieces her spouse.
Love is supposed to be sublime and this subliminal when taken to a higher plane transforms the relationship into the metaphysical as exemplified by the divine devotion of the mystic poetess Meera for her idol Lord Krishna.
However, the metamorphosis from the metaphysical into the outrageously physical is the cumulative culmination of a series of processes, both at the physiological and psychological level, which manifests itself into an action of which Shiney and numerous others of his ilk are guilty of.
However, on the legal front, modern jurisprudence on consensual sex between two adults does provide the accused with a fig leaf of an escape route provided the forensic and circumstantial evidence is corroborative of the fact that the consummation of the act occurred with the explicit consent of the victim and not under duress or any unlawful inducement. More so, the onus of proof in the case of alleged rape being on the accused, it makes all the more difficult for Shiney to extricate himself from the quagmire that supposedly is of his own making. Whether this episode will turn into India’s O J Simpson trial remains to be seen.
The study Perceptions and Experiences of Gendered Violations in Public Places of Delhi had a sample base of 630 respondents and threw some interesting facts. Perhaps the most glaring, albeit unsurprising, was that 97% of the respondents admitted that they had been sexually harassed in a public place. That Delhi doesn’t care also came out in the study, with 86% saying the public turns a blind eye when such harassment takes place. No wonder then that 44% of the abused respondents said they preferred to remain silent rather than going to the police. From parks, empty roads and parking lots to cinema halls and buses, every public space seemed a potential harassment spot for the respondents as 95% admitted that their mobility was restricted due to the city’s unsafe nature.
Lora Prabhu of CEQUIN pointed out that while the study primarily underlined the perceptions that already exist, it provided a basis for further dialogue on the issue. “We are planning a series of campaigns to reach all stakeholders, including the government, police and civil society,” said Prabhu. Both Pilot and Prabhu were clear that rather than just laying the onus on women to safeguard themselves, the campaign would target men and boys. “One of the reasons for sexual harassment in the study was the perception of masculinity. We need to educate the public, specially men, that gender sensitivity is as much a part of being masculine as physical strength,” added Pilot.
CEQUIN plans to conduct workshops in schools and colleges as well as with police personnel, added Prabhu. “There is little awareness about laws regarding sexual harassment, with varying degrees of harassment being put under one head of eve-teasing. With this campaign, we want to address this issue as well,” said Prabhu. However, with Sehwag as the good-will ambassador and the Daredevils team being roped in to spread awareness, the NGO hopes gender violation will not be so prevalent in the coming years.
The Vishakha guidelines, laid down by the Supreme Court to fight sexual harassment at workplace, will complete 12 years on August 13. The
guidelines were framed in 1997 to make known the meaning of sexual harassment, to explain the complaint redressal system and to inform of the steps that should be taken by employers to prevent harassment at workplace.
The guidelines were named after the group Vishakha, made up of women activists and groups, which filed a petition seeking to frame guidelines for preventing sexual harassment of working women. This was after they witnessed the injustice meted out to Bhanwari devi of Rajasthan, who was allegedly raped by a few men who were opposed to her social work, the alleged rapists being set free later.
At a lecture in the city on Thursday, social activist Lata Bhise- Sonawane said that, despite it being 12 years since the guidelines were laid down, there was still a lack of awareness among women about what actually accounts to sexual harassment. “Around three decades ago, women were even scared to speak up about domestic violence. Talking of sexual harassment was something inconceivable and something that put a question mark on the woman’s character. Today things are a little better.”
Sonawane added that, “Now, activists are making an effort to inform women about the guidelines so that they could have a safe and happy working environment. It is not just about physical contact, but even verbal or obscene non-verbal gestures are forms of sexual harassment. Women need to know that it is not the victim who has to prove that she has been harassed, but it is the accused who has to prove that he did not harass the person concerned.”
Calling the guidelines a landmark judgement that changed things for the better for women, Sonawane said the guidelines are so thorough that it considers sexual harassment in each and every situation, be it temporary or part-time employees, contract workers, those who work on hourly basis or even those who are harassed by visitors to the workplace. “According to the Vishakha guidelines, every organisation should have an elected a committee with a woman president to deal with complaints. A sign stating the presence of such a committee should be displayed prominently in every workplace, this would go a long way in preventing harassments,” she said.
A bill encompassing all issues regarding sexual harassment was drafted in 2003 together by the National Commission for Women and several activists and organisations. Many additions were made in 2004, 2005 and 2006 with a final draft being framed in 2007 and circulated amongst different ministries. “Now it has been sent to the law department from the ministry of women and child development. It even has a proposal that allows maintaining of secrecy in cases,” said Sonawane.
Ruing the low awareness in society about the issue, Sonawane said that there needs to be a campaign, like the Bell Bajao’ campaign against domestic violence. “There is a slow change in the mind-set of the society that women are not meant to be abused or harassed, but a lot more can be done. The education sector has benefited the most from the awareness. But we should not become aware after an incident takes place; we should be aware enough to prevent such incidents.”

NASIR SAFAR SAYS THE EARLY INDIAN IMMIGRANTS TO MALAYA BEGGARS AND THE CHINESE PROSTITUTES

Now a new controversy has erupted. And it’s about the statement that the Indians came here as beggars and the Chinese as prostitutes. Actually, if you were to really study Malayan and Malaysian history over the last 500 years or so, you will find that this country’s history is not just about beggars and prostitutes. It is about much more than that.Since the first Indian Muslim stepped on these shore and spread the religion of Islam, have manage to preserve their culture and assimilated with Malays so this has be come the Malay culture. It was Munshi Abdullah who gave us the modern bahasa Melayu.They say our children are at the a crossroad ,a unique dilemma—are asking whether they are Malay or Indian Muslim?

 To find the first Muslims of India, you must visit the first mosque of India, Cheraman Juma Masjid in Kodungallur. A simple mosque, Cheraman Juma Masjid was named after a famous king, King Cheraman Perumal. King Perumal’s capital was in Kodungallur which is now in the Thrissur district of Kerala. MAHATHIR WAS BORN ON 10 JULY 1925, IN ALOR STAR, THE CAPITAL OF THE NORTHERN STATE OF KEDAH,[8] THE YOUNGEST OF NINE CHILDREN[9] OF A SCHOOLTEACHER AND A HOUSEWIFE.

INDIAN MUSLIMS–IN DEFENCE OF MAHATHIR

by Neil Khor (December 28, 2009)

Indian or Muslim, you cannot be both to be Malaysian!
Just when one hopes for clarity of vision or some astute observation from our senior statesmen, out comes this really strange statement. But to be fair, what was the context and what was the situation that Dr Mahathir Mohamad was referring to?
Former premier Mahathir never minces his words. He tells it as it is. He also does not need the government to “protect” him. He calls a spade a spade. He gives as good as he gets.
In this case, he was speaking at a function organised by the Kadayalannur Muslim Society, telling a group of people who still define themselves by their place of origin to be less tied to their ‘homeland’ and instead focus on being more Malaysian.
He said that for 1Malaysia to succeed, those of migrant origins must be less attached to their homelands. By this, he was referring to a metaphysical attachment to the “mother country”, the reference point that migrant societies often use to anchor their new-found identities in their country of adoption.
To be Malaysian, to Mahathir, means giving up this emotional link to one’s country of origin. He also said that the Indian Muslims must decide whether to be Indian or Muslim. In the context of his speech, this means deciding whether one was Indian as an ethnic category or Malay, as Muslims are defined constitutionally.
Almost immediately, Mahathir was condemned as racist and Islamically “unenlightened”. To my mind, our ex-premier was merely stating a fact when speaking about Indian Muslims. He could very well be referring to himself or speaking from self-experience.
To be or not to be
Malaysia is a very diverse country with a very complex history. Indian Muslim refers to a very wide group. It could refer to a person of Indian ancestry who is also a Muslim; or it can refer to a long-time domiciled group whose way of life is the result of many years of integration and, who at some point in time, have been accepted to be part of the wider Malay Muslim community.
Readers must also be reminded that Mahathir was speaking in Penang, where there is a large Indian Muslim community that have for more than 200 years contributed to the development of the state, particularly in Georgetown.
Like the Peranakan Chinese in Malacca, some Indian Muslims no longer speak Tamil or their inherited ‘mother-tongue’. Constitutionally, they can be considered ‘Malays’. What is particularly interesting here is that historically the definition of Malay as “a person who habitually speaks Malay, practices a Malay way of life and is a Muslim” was created in Penang in the 1920s.
In fact, the Penang Malay Association (now called Pemenang) defined its members in this fashion to avoid the more exclusionary definition then prevailing in Singapore.
In those days, the British colonial government accepted representations from various ‘ethnic’ groups and it was worthwhile for the more urbanised ‘Malays’ of Arab and Indian ancestry to identify themselves as ‘Malays’.
When we became an independent country with the introduction of electoral politics and race-based parties, it became imperative that the ‘Malay’ category be boosted by co-opting groups that may not previously be considered Malay. In fact, in the pre-World War II Pan-Malayan Malay Convention, the Penang Malay Association was excluded precisely on the grounds that its members were not ‘Malays’.
So, to Mahathir’s mind, Indian Muslims have an essential choice: be Indian or be Muslim. He is not asking them to leave Islam, he is telling them that if they are less India-oriented and emphasise their Muslim identity more, they can enjoy the privileges associated with being a ‘Malay’. He might as well say: “Look at me… I am a Muslim and have become a Malay and the sky is the limit”. What an inspirational speech.
The problem is that Mahathir was speaking to Malaysians in 2008 and not 1948. In an intensely ‘racialised’ environment with a bureaucracy that is very ‘race-conscience’, it is simply not good enough to be more Muslim than Indian.
Many Indian Muslims have been asked to produce their parent’s birth certificates before they can qualify for privileges reserved for the ‘bumiputeras’. When it is learned that they have Indian parents, they fail to obtain the desired scholarships.

Legend has it that King Perumal became Muslim and decided to go visit Prophet Mohammad. He travelled to the Hijaz to meet the Prophet Mohammad. On the way back, King Perumal passed away. Before passing away, Cheraman instructed his companions to go on with the journey and establish a masjid in Kerala.

 

The Masjid is said to have been established in the year 629CE. This means that it was constructed just 7-8 years after the hijrah of the Prophet to Medina. Some people doubt this story, but it is a fact that Malabar was linked to Arabs through maritime trade. So if it was not within 10 years of hijrah then at least 100-200 years after Islam spread in the Arabian Peninsula it was well established in Malabar.

The story of Islam and Muslims in Malabar is truly unique. Muslims here lived harmoniously under non-Muslim rulers for thousand years. This harmony is reflected in the old historical mosques that litter this region- a few of them almost a thousand years old. Borrowing heavily from local artistic talent and tradition, these beautiful structure provide the evidence that Islam arrived here early and its growth has been harmonious.
It is no accident that a large number of Malyalees work in gulf countries; Malabar had trade relations with Arabs since time immemorial. The roots of Mappilas or Moplahs, as the Muslims of this region are called, can be found in this trade. As William Logan suggests in Malabar Manual, by the ninth century, Muslims had become a distinct community. Arabs who came and settled here married with the local population and a distinct group called Mappilas was born.

Mappilas, took advantage of Arab and Malayalam traditions and created something unique. This culture produced its own literature, songs, music, and dances and even a language, Arabi-Malayalam. They lived and worked for a non-Muslim ruler, Zamorins of Calicut, managing maritime trade and navy.

Mappilas and Malabar enjoyed a peaceful and prosperous lifestyle until the sixteenth century. At this time the Portuguese arrived in India and their piracy on the Indian Ocean disrupted the long established trade routes on the water. This, and the brief rule of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan created the environment of distrust between the communities which further escalated under the British

First of all I would like to admit that ‘Indian Muslims’ I have used countless times. Lately, it appears to me that ‘Muslims in India’ has finer connotations. ‘Indian Muslims’ clearly tells us which country they belong to. It does so very well. It, however, probably does not go much beyond that. ‘Muslims in Malaysia’, on the other hand, takes the community to a different plane. It indicates that these are a people who have a vision and a mission, too, besides a nationality.

If we start using ‘Muslims in India’ we may find that some of the issues that we most frequently discuss are not of much relevance. It will give a better direction to our thoughts and actions for the benefit of everyone in the country. For instance, it may help in reviewing the meaning of ‘minority’, and ‘reservation’ etc. May be the frequently used terminologies will become infrequent, then. The “HOW” of all of the above is worth reflecting upon.

The same is the case of ‘Asian Muslims’, ‘African Muslims’, ‘European Muslims’, ‘American Muslims’ and ‘Muslims in Asia’, ‘Muslims in Africa’, ‘Muslims in Europe’ and ‘Muslims in America’. The same is the case in all the unnamed places, too. It will be enlightening to know what the respected members on our Forums think about the subject.
In their day-to-day administration of the country, the powers that be often give scant regard to the constitutional provision contained in Article 8(1) which states that “all persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law”; and Article 8(2) which states that “there shall be no discrimination against citizens on the ground only of religion, race, descent or place of birth in any law relating to the acquisition, holding or disposition of property or the establishing or carrying on of any trade, business, profession, vocation or employment”. 

One major sore point in the area of race relations is the New Economic Policy, whose original intention to create unity has been subverted to become a major source of disunity not only between the various races but also among the Malays and Bumiputeras in general.

The New Economic Policy, which was conceived in 1971 not long after the Tunku had retired as prime minister, was primarily created to address poverty, and to raise the level of Malay participation in the economy.

NEP was meant for ALL Malayians

It was intended for all Malaysians, and not just for the Malays or Bumiputeras. As a former finance minister, let me emphasise that it was never the intention of the NEP to create an incubated class of Malay capitalists. If we visit the government departments or universities, we wonder where all the non-Malays have gone.

After 1969, suddenly there was this attempt to recruit mostly Malays into the civil service.It is tragic that the civil service does not reflect the racial composition of the Malaysian population, as the predominant presence of only one race tends to engender a sub-culture that is antithetical to the evolution of a dynamic and efficient civil administration in the country.

Our school system is not as it used to be. The non-Malays prefer to send their children to vernacular schools, as the national schools have assumed an exclusively Malay character.Needless to say, national schools have become even less attractive to the non-Malays as English is no longer used in the teaching of mathematics and science.

The situation will be very different if all discriminatory practices in the education system were to be abolished, and a common system of education for all is adopted.

National unity is the one area that we cannot afford to ignore, and the real genesis of national unity, I submit, is from an unlikely source: Parliament, warts and all.

It is the Parliament that has the final say in charting the direction the country is heading to.We must have a strong and resolute government which recognises the needs of all Malaysians, and formulates the right policies for the propagation of a cohesive and integrated society.

If Parliament enacts laws that are just and fair for all Malaysians based on meritocracy and need, more than half the battle for national unity would be won.

In this respect, the rakyat as voters must realise that in the ultimate they alone hold the key to the future of this country.

Article 160(2) of the Constitution of Malaysia defines various terms used in the Constitution. It has an important impact on Islam in Malaysia and the Malay people due to its definition of a Malay person. The article defines a Malay as a person who satisfies two sets of criteria:

AMIRAH TIDAK PENUHI SYARAT
OLEH NIK SUKRY RAMLI

2011/08/25

Hanya lulusan STPM, matrikulasi boleh ikuti pengajian perubatan IPTA

KUALA LUMPUR: Universiti awam di negara ini hanya mengambil pelajar lulusan Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) dan program matrikulasi bagi mengikuti pengajian bidang perubatan, kata Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Pengajian Tinggi, Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi (KPT), Prof Datuk Rujhan Mustafa.

Sehubungan itu, katanya, pelajar cemerlang Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), Amirah Farveen Basheer Ahamad, 18, tidak memenuhi syarat pengambilan program perubatan walaupun mendapat 9A dalam SPM lalu.

Katanya, semakan sudah dilakukan pihaknya melalui rekod Unit Pusat Universiti (UPU) dan mendapati Amirah menghantar permohonan bagi mengikuti pengajian dalam bidang perubatan di Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia (UIAM), Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) dan Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).

“Kami mengambil kira semua faktor sebelum menerima atau menolak permohonan dikemukakan oleh semua calon. Dalam kes (Amirah) ini, ada beberapa faktor yang mengakibatkan beliau tidak ditawarkan memasuki mana-mana IPTA.

“Bagi permohonan ke UIAM dan UiTM, taraf kewarganegaraan diberi keutamaan. Untuk itu kami bergantung kepada maklumat Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) dan status Bumiputera tidak dipenuhi oleh ibu atau bapa Amirah, berikutan rekod JPN menyatakan ibu bapanya adalah India Muslim,” katanya ketika dihubungi Berita Harian, di sini semalam.

Beliau berkata demikian selepas diminta mengulas mengenai kekecewaan Amirah yang gagal melanjutkan pengajian ke IPTA.

Prof Rujhan berkata, permohonan Amirah ke USIM juga tidak dapat diproses dan diluluskan kerana beliau tidak mempunyai kepujian dalam subjek Bahasa Arab, dan markah diperoleh juga tidak mencapai markah maksimum ditetapkan untuk permohonan program dipilih.
Selain itu, katanya, proses pemilihan dan surat tawaran dikeluarkan berdasarkan pilihan calon, manakala tempat disediakan bagi kursus dipohon (Amirah) terhad sedangkan ramai calon berkelayakan memohon.

cIN DEFENCE OF INDIAN MUSLIMS MAHATHIR VS SHITBRAIN GEPIMA PRESIDENT MOHAMED KADER ALI

the man with of the Malaysian Indian Muslim Youth Movement (Gepima)
Mahathir’s mind, Indian Muslims have an essential choice: be Indian or be Muslim. He is not asking them to leave Islam, he is telling them that if they are less India-oriented and emphasise their Muslim identity more, they can enjoy the privileges associated with being a ‘Malay’. He might as well say: “Look at me… I am a Muslim and have become a Malay and the sky is the limit”. What an inspirational speech.
The problem is that Mahathir was speaking to Malaysians in 2008 and not 1948. In an intensely ‘racialised’ environment with a bureaucracy that is very ‘race-conscience’, it is simply not good enough to be more Muslim than Indian.
Many Indian Muslims have been asked to produce their parent’s birth certificates before they can qualify for privileges reserved for the ‘bumiputeras’. When it is learned that they have Indian parents, they fail to obtain the desired scholarships.

It will be a long time before we can get away from framing our discourse in terms of race and religion. I am confident we can, if we all focus on justice, democracy and freedom. These issues unite us all and make race and religion quite irrelevant. I do not deny that race and religion define who we are. But that should not divide us.

And they do not think this is an outrageous request since the Federal Constitution states that an Indian is a Malay “if he professes the Muslim religion, habitually speaks Malay and conforms to Malay custom”.
These traits are practised by Muslims of Indian origin today, claimed Gepima president Mohamed Kader Ali.

If unity is our objective, then we need to get out of the race-religion mindset and focus on our common quest for justice, democracy and freedom. The Indian versus Muslim kind of argument is not helpful. The Mamaks can be both. They are already Malaysians, only that today we are all led by a regime that still uses the divide and rule means to retain power and keep us separate, each in our own cubicle. After 52 years, one would have thought we would have overcome the issue of identity in our politics.–Din Merican

want to be known as Malays and not Indians.

“I am a second generation Malaysian and I can safely say that from wedding rituals to the food we eat and the language we speak, we conform to Malay customs all the way.

“As such, Gepima is appealing to the government to streamline the laws and recognise Muslims born after independence as Malays in their birth certificate.

“We have been facing this problem for the past 50 years.

“We have written several letters to the National Registration Department but it keeps saying that it can’t do anything about this.”

Kader’s son, 24-year-old Syed Osman Mohamed, cited an incident last August when he went to the Registrar of Companies to apply for a business permit.

“In the forms that I filled up, I stated Malay as my race and Islam as my religion. But the officer called me up and asked me to change it to Indian, based on how I looked.

“He only had my MyKad and it does not state there whether I am Indian or not,” Syed Osman said.

“We feel uncomfortable to be known as Indians, because people automatically think we are Hindus when we are actually Muslim.”

Kader added that Muslims of Indian origin suffered an inferiority complex by being regarded as Indians.

“Our children do not even know how to speak Tamil.

“They only converse in Malay and our wives wear baju kurung or kebaya nowadays, no more the saree.”

A section of the ethnic Indian Muslim community living inMalaysia want to be known as Malays rather than Indians and have petitioned the government to streamline the laws accordingly.

Members of the Malaysian Indian Muslim Youth Movement (Gepima) want to be known as Malays and not Indians since the the country’s constitution states that an Indian is a Malay “if he professes the Muslim religion, habitually speaks Malay and conforms to Malay custom”.
“I am a second generation Malaysian and I can safely say that from wedding rituals to the food we eat and the language we speak, we conform to Malay customs all the way,” said Gepima president Mohamed Kader Ali.
He said since these traits are widely practised by Muslims of Indian origin today, “Gepima is appealing to the government to streamline the laws and recognise Muslims born after independence as Malays in their birth certificate.”
“We have written several letters to the National Registration Department but it keeps saying that it can’t do anything about this,” Ali was quoted as saying by the New Straits Times online. “We have been facing this problem for the past 50 years.”
Ethnic Indians in Malaysia are mostly Hindus with origin from Tamil Nadu. They have become increasingly vocal with claims that they are marginalised in this multi-racial country.
Syed Osman Mohamed, Ali’s 24-year-old son, said we “feel uncomfortable to be known as Indians, because people automatically think we are Hindus when we are actually
Muslim.”
Ali said our children do not even know how to speak Tamil. “They only converse in Malay and our wives wear baju kurung or kebaya nowadays, no more the saree,” he said.
