Petition to King DYMM YD Agong on 11/7/2010 at 2.30pm call for Royal Commission of Enquiry further to Article 93 of the Federal Constitution on the exclusion and segregation of especially the poor Indian students from being granted JPA Scholarships, PTPTN study loans, Matriculation and University places. - Hindraf aka HRP
Barking wrong tree again. While the Opposition and some liberal elements within Umno are busy with their new punching bag called Perkasa which they claimed are extremists, their old pals in the really extreme and racist Hindraf (now masquerading as Human Rights Party) are at it again [read here]. I am just thankful that this time they're not claiming that there's genocide in our schools and Indian pupils and students are being systematically decimated by the Umno-backed and Perkasa-loving government. Hehe.
And here's why there will not be a Royal Commission and why Hindraf and HRP are, as usual, barking the wrong tree:
- In 2009, MIED gave RM6.8 million to 723 students in loan to further their studies out of which RM4.9 million was for medical students. *
* Figures taken from YB P. Kamalanathan's twitter
- From 1984 till 2009 - MIED has given out loans to 13,371 students amounting to RM96 million *
- 4551 Indian students applied for IPTA, 2499 are qualified and 2304 got a place to study. That's 92.2% success rate. *
