It takes a nation to protect the nation

An exiled Indian Malaysian human rights lawyer plans to file a lawsuit against the British government for failing to provide adequate safety to the community under the rule of Malay-Muslim majority when independence was granted to the former colony. London-based Waytha Moorthy claims that the then British Harold MacMillian's government failed to provide protection to Indian Malaysians when independence was granted to the former colony in 1957. The 46-year-old lawyer was expected to re-issue a class action lawsuit at the High Court Monday. He is claiming a sum of $1 million in compensation for each one of Malaysia's 1.8 million Indians. Originally launched in 2007, but never heard and now out of time, Moorthy's claim is on behalf of Indian Malaysians who he said face human rights abuses and live unprotected and in "continuous colonisation". The then British government gave the Muslim population special rights and privileges, effectively establishing a system of apartheid ever since, he said in a statement. "In India, at the time of partition, the British government gave rights to minorities. "In Malaysia, minority racial and religious groups were hung out to dry. The result is that 45 percent of the population is still being marginalised, humiliated and discriminated against when it comes to jobs, education and finance," said Moorthy, chair of HINDRAF, an NGO advocating equal rights for Indian Malaysians. The organisation is banned in Malaysia and Moorthy has been jailed on numerous occasions in that country.

The Batang Kali Massacre trial - end of a Very British Cover-Up?

14 May 2012

In 1948, Scots Guardsmen shot dead 24 unarmed Chinese labourers in the rubber tapping village of Batang Kali, part of what was then colonial Malaya. Their village then was razed to the ground. Their dependents were left destitute. Then, in 1970, several of the Guardsmen involved came forward and, in the presence of their solicitors, openly confessed to the Metropolitan Police that they were ordered to execute the villagers extra-judicially, that the male villagers were divided into groups to be shot, and that they were later coached to say that this had happened during a mass escape attempt. A detailed chronology of the events surrounding the killings and their investigation can be found here.

These events have been the subject of two police investigations, both of which were terminated against the wishes of the police officers involved, investigations by print journalists, a BBC documentary and a recently published book, Slaughter and Deception at Batang Kali.

Against this backdrop, the victims’ families have been calling for an acknowledgement of wrongdoing and an independent inquiry or investigation into why it occurred.

Yet far from taking responsibility for this most shameful episode in British military history, the Coalition’s Secretaries of State for Defence and Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs have told the families that they are simply unwilling to do anything so that the truth of what happened can be made public. No apology has been offered. Responsibility has been evaded on the basis of hollow and technical arguments that the British Army was somehow under the command and control of the Sultan of Selangor at the time of the massacre. The Secretaries of State have not even bothered to take advice on whether the killings were legal.

On 8 and 9 May 2012 the victims’ families asked the High Court to overturn the refusal to investigate. The written submissions prepared by the families’ lawyers – Michael Fordham QC, Danny Freidman, Professor Zachary Douglas and Bindmans’ John Halford are here. In summary they argue:

• the Secretaries of State ought to have accepted that the official account given the UK Parliament – that these were necessary and justified killings -  is simply unsustainable;



Well imagine how the british feel, we have given better rights to minoritys in this country as well. Maybe we should all sue.

I have ever sympathy for the indians in malaysia. I feel sorry for any non-muslim who has to endure life under islamic rule  But if Britian had given independence with conditions, what sort of independence would that have been. With Britian its a case of dammed if you do, dammed if you don't.


Malaya was no different to Iraq and Afghanistan, a lot of British troops where killed, so as islamists can take power.

4/1/46 The Malayan Union officially came into existence with Sir Edward Gent as its first governor. The capital of the Union was Kuala Lumpur.

Notice the sign is written in english and Arab,not Malay

The Malays/Moslems opposed the creation of the Union. The opposition was mainly due the erosion of the Sultans’ powers and the offering of citizenship to recent immigrants mainly the ethnic Chinese because their economic dominance was seen as a threat to the economic development of the Malays/moslems.

The United Malays National Organization, or UMNO, a Malay/moslem political association formed by Dato’ \Onn Jaafar on March 1, 1946, led the opposition against the Malayan Union.

In the end, due to tremendous internal pressure inside the Malayan Union, the British finally conceded to the local opposition. The Malayan Union ceased to exist on January 31, 1948. It was replaced by the Federation of Malaya (Persekutuan Tanah Melayu in Malay) which recognised the position of the Malays/Moslems as the definitive people of Malaya as well as outlining stricter conditions on the granting of citizenship.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
