Hindraf banned for threatening the national security

Malaysia is a multi racial country, the highly sensitive issues are always forbidden from exploitation. Undeniably, the authority has no hesitation to take action including using ISA if they pose a threat to public order, the security and sovereignty of the country as well as the prevailing racial harmony.

The Malaysian Government has banned the illegal organization Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) as it poses a threat to national security.

Hindraf had actively exploited the Indian community to organize illegal assemblies and street demonstrations without permits that causing a large section of the ethnic Indians to rise up against the government and also hatred among the Malays and Indians in the country.

Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar said in a statement that the government decided to declare Hindraf illegal after the ministry was satisfied with facts and evidence that showed Hindraf was being used for unlawful purposes and posed a threat to public order and morality.

He said the government move followed the result of monitoring and investigations by the country's Registrar of Societies (ROS) since Hindraf was formed.

"As a result of the investigations, the Home Ministry, as per its authority under sections 3 and 5 of the Societies Act 1966, has declared Hindraf unlawful and detrimental to peace, public order, security and the moral values of Malaysia."
