The Star manipulated my remarks on Najib

August 2, 2012

FMT LETTER From P Waythamorthy, via e-mail

I refer to the news report in The Star today at page 12 which quotes as follows;

“He (Waythamoorthy) said Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak had shown sincerity in his initiatives to help the Indian community.

“ We are happy with this matter but would like the Prime Minister to make good on his promises” he said adding that ……

I wish to state the following which would affirm what I had said in my press conference;

1) My press conference was video recorded by Hindraf media TV and we would be making this copy available unedited online soon;

2) I categorically deny having ever said the above passages.

3) The Star should apologise for deliberately misquoting me and make a correction accordingly with immediate effect.

4) I have said that the fact that PM Najib has been going around dishing out handouts to the Indian community is a clear evidence that the BN government acknowledges they have wronged and marginalised the community and that it was time to solve the problem of the Indian community in a comprehensive manner.

5) Hindraf reiterates that this government should address the gross violations of human rights affecting the poor and underclass community.

I hope this would clarify the deliberate and malicious publication of The Star

P Waythamoorthy is the Hindraf chairman
