Conclusion. In the aforesaid first two weeks of Najib Razak’s rule as Prime Minister we have noted this 44 areas where the Indians have been excluded from the national mainstream development of Malaysia. This is just the tip of the iceberg where Indians suffer on a day to day basis as a result of this 53 years old UMNO’s racist, religious extremist and supremacist policies and targeting at the Indians as they are the softest targets. To us Malaysia is today the most racist country in the world after apartheid ended in South Africa some 20 years ago in 1990.
