Human Rights Party Malaysia was formed as a multiracial party which promises that it would carry on with the Hindraf Makkal Sakthi’s initial 18-point demands dated August 2007 to the government of Malaysia and in particular Article 8 (Equality before the law) Article 12 (1) (b) (no discrimination) and Article 153(1) (legitimate interests of other communities) of the Federal Constitution. The main thrust of this party is to be the focus group in putting the Malaysian Indians back onto the national mainstream development of Malaysia after 52 years of having been left out.[citation needed] The party also focus on all other communities that are suffering from the worst forms of violations of human rights in Malaysia, in particular the Malaysian Indians who instead get the least attention not only from the ruling UMNO regime but also from the opposition parties PKR, DAP, PAS, NGOs, civil society and the print and electronic media generally, albeit to a lesser extent.[citation needed]

The main struggle of HRP is against all forms of racism and racial discrimination by the current ruling government in Malaysia, namely UMNO.[citation needed]
