"Fight will continue to the end." Yesterday, a reader alerted us to an article in Straits Times (Singapore) on self-exiled Hindraf leader P. Waytha Moorthy "giving up" on the fight in an AP article headlined "Indians fight losing battle for equal rights". Reader kalyan97 has mailed me a statement which Waytha is supposed to have issued to deny the AP report.
In this latest statement, Waytha declared that "I will continue to lead HINDRAF even if I'm on the move throughout the world." He said he has lined up many plans to keep the struggle alive and that he will continue to lobby the support of foreign governemnts to keep the pressure on the Malaysian government.To read Waytha Moorthy's full statement: Waytha clarifies statement in AP report."HINDRAF would also be organizing various peaceful protests throughout the country to highlight the plight of the 70% poor underclass Malaysian Indian society and for the release of the 5 Leaders of which I would announce the first plan on Monday 7th January 2008."
