Chennai, Dec 4 (UNI) Calling for international pressure on Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur-based Hind Rights Action Force (HRAF) Founder-Chairman P Waytha Moorthy today urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to hold talks with his Malaysian counterpart on the issue of alleged marginalisation of ethnic Indians there.

Talking to newspersons here, he said, Dr Singh could urge his counterpart Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to solve the issue.

Mr Moorthy, who had met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi and sought his support, said he wanted to meet Dr Singh in this regard and apprise him of the situation.

His demand assumed significance in the backdrop of the Malaysian Ministers' observation that the protests by ethnic Indians was purely an internal matter of that country.

''All the countries in the world should question Malaysia about the human rights violation in the Muslim country,'' Mr Moorthy said.

Since Malaysia was a member of the United Nations, it was answerable to others under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948, he noted.

Mr Moorthy, who was camping here for the last few days after he was released by the Malaysian police, alleged that Hindu temples were being demolished and relocated.
