SUHAKAM’s report in Parliament: Landmark but more needs to be done
In conjunction with the World Human Rights Day, Pusat KOMAS, SAVE RIVERS, Jaringan Kampung Orang Asli Semenanjung Malaysia (JKOASM) are happy to express our heartiest wishes to fellow fervent human rights defenders in Malaysia a Happy Human Rights Day. We congratulate the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (SUHAKAM) for its determination to push for its annual report be debated in Parliament.
Learning other religion would decrease social discomfort
Pusat KOMAS is deeply worried with the character of Malaysian elections remorsefully becoming a sad market of decaying social values and toxic politics. Lack of understanding the virtuousness of different religion is the fundamental reason for the continuous exploitation of race and religion in the election domain, recently, at Tanjung Piai by-election which sees the ethnicised “Vote Muslim First” campaign among many others.
Tanjung Piai by-election: Be mindful of race and religion
Pusat KOMAS wishes the best of luck to the candidates of upcoming Tanjung Piai by-election.
Pusat KOMAS strictly reminds the contending parties in Tanjung Piai by-election to refrain from using race and religion as their political tool in galvanising the support of masses.
There are no second-class citizens in Malaysia
Pusat KOMAS is disgruntled and dumbfounded with the recurring theme of, which exploits, race and religion that tailors irresponsible messages signaling as if the Malay-Muslims are threatened by the other ethnic groups in Malaysia. The union of political leaders from all sides, non-governmental organisations, varsity students and the Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad at the Kongres Maruah Melayu under the umbrella of race and religion appears to be unhealthy and destructive to the development of an inclusive Malaysia.
How You Can Get Involved
Volunteers play an important role in KOMAS’ work so if you have the time, energy and skills to share, there are various things you can be involved in KOMAS’ programmes.
Malaysia Racial Discrimination Report
in conjunction with the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
KOMAS together with 7 other civil society organizations have initiated a campaign to advocate the Malaysian government to ratify the ICERD.
ICERD is the INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION ON THE ELIMINATION OF ALL FORMS OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION. The ICERD was adapted by UN general assembly in 1963 which commits its members to the elimination of racial discrimination and the promotion of equality and unity among all races.
Orang Asli Support
Pusat KOMAS works in close collaboration with Jaringan Kampung Orang Asli Semenanjung Malaysia (JKOASM) since 1993.
