In a spot after ‘embracing’ Islam as a minor
||Bernard Cheah||GEORGE TOWN, Nov 19, 2009||see original here||Elaboration by Upananda Brahmachari||

She was only seven when she was told to take an oath to embrace Islam and renounce her original faith of Hinduism. Muslim Fundamentalists could not found her tender age to consider her care free attitude for nature, love for song or play. Amidst  her cry as an effortless protest, they could not bothered anything to continue the rites of Islamic Conversion, highly illegal as the girl was minor. She was not alone, the Muslim clergy men were busy the to increase the numbers of Muslims in a very peaceful design.

Siti Hasnah Vangarama Abdullah, now 27, was in a government welfare home, Rumah Kanak-kanak in Taman Bakti, Kepala Batas, when she and several other children, some of whom were Chinese, were told by Perkim and the Penang Muslim Affairs Council to take the oath and renounce her original Hindu faith. In this way the Muslims often increase the numbers of Muslims through Peace Mission.

Born Banggarma Subramaniam as Hindu, she practised Islam in the welfare home until the age of 15 as a plight of her fate.

“I was more mature and realised what had happened, and started practising Hinduism again,” she said in a press conference yesterday to highlight her plight.

Banggarma said ran away from the welfare home three years later, unable to cope with the stress of living in the home and unbearable persecution and enormous exploitation upon the converted Hindu inmates of that Home.

She married S. Sockalingam, 31, according to Hindu rites, but could not register the marriage as, according to the National Registration Department as she was converted as a  Muslim even in her minor age without her consent or forcefully for  the sake of Islamic humanity.

She also could not name Sockalingam as father of their two children, Kanagaraj, 8 and Hisyanthini, 2, in their birth certificates due to this.

“When I went back to the home in 2001 to collect my documents I was told that I was still a Muslim,” she said. In Malaysia, Muslim can covert any Hindu or non-Muslim at any moment. But the Muslims or the Converted persons are not allowed to revert into their own religion in any scope.

Banggarma tried to change her name in her MyKad to her original name, but failed.

She and Sockalingam, who are residing in Tanjung Piandang, Perak, approached the relevant authorities to help her to revert to Hinduism, but their efforts were in vain.

They then turned to PKR Kedah’s Deputy Youth chief Gooi Hsiao Leung for help.

Gooi, a lawyer, said no minor is capable of giving free consent to renounce his or her own religion and embrace Islam.

“At the age of seven, she would not have understood nor appreciated the meaning of the words in the oath. She could hardly even write and spell her own name,” he told the press yesterday.

Gooi said the welfare home should have left Banggarma’s original religion alone until she was old enough to decide for herself.

He said he would refer her case to the relevant authorities, and if necessary, take the issue to court.
