HINDRAF or Hindu Rights Action Force ((マレー語:Barisan Bertindak Hak-Hak Hindu), Tamil: இந்து உரிமைகள் போராட்டக் குழு, Chinese:兴权 ) with its slogan of ''People's Power'' (மக்கள் சக்தி translated as ''Makkal Sakthi'' ) began as a coalition of 30 Hindu non-governmental organisations committed to the preservation of Hindu community rights and heritage in a multiracial Malaysia. 〔(Hindu group protests "temple cleansing" in Malaysia )〕〔(''Asia Times'' )〕
HINDRAF has made a major impact to the political landscape of Malaysia in staging the 2007 HINDRAF rally. In late 2007, several prominent members of the HINDRAF were arrested, some on charges of sedition; following an enormous rally organised by HINDRAF in November. The charges were dismissed by the courts. Five people have since been detained without trial under the Internal Security Act. The group has over the last two years developed a broader political program to preserve and to push for equal rights and opportunities for the minority Indians. It has been successful in continuing to focus attention on the racist aspects of the Malaysian Government policies.
Between April to May 2006, several legal Hindu temples were demolished by city hall authorities in the country.〔(Temple row - a dab of sensibility please ), ''malaysiakini.com''〕 On 21 April 2006, the Malaimel Sri Selva Kaliamman Temple in Kuala Lumpur was reduced to rubble after the city hall sent in bulldozers.〔(Muslims Destroy Century-Old Hindu Temple ), ''gatago.com''〕
The Hindu Rights Action Force or HINDRAF, a coalition of several NGO's, have protested these demolitions by lodging complaints with the Prime Minister of Malaysia but with no response.〔 Many Hindu advocacy groups have protested what they allege is a systematic plan of temple cleansing in Malaysia. The official reason given by the Malaysian government has been that the temples were built illegally. However, several of the temples are centuries old.〔("Hindu group protests 'temple cleansing' in Malaysia" ), ''Financial Express''〕
According to a lawyer for HINDRAF, a Hindu temple is demolished in Malaysia once every three weeks.〔(Malaysia ethnic Indians in uphill fight on religion ) Reuters India - 8 November 2007〕
