Stataless Indians – an epidemic?

Human Rights Party protem sec-gen P. Uthayakumar highlighted the fate of 35-year-old Malaysian  Thayalan, who had not been issued an Identity Card until last week.

His ordeal had also affected his entire family, where most of them had to wait a long time to obtain their birth certificates or ICs.

Uthayakumar also spoke at length about the statelessness problem that is plaguing the Indian community in Malaysia and alleged that the government is ‘denying’ the poor illiterate Indians their basic documents.
