Malaysian Indian Congress
The Malaysian Indian Congress
(MIC) was established in August 1946
at the end of World War II
. It was established in the cause of the community's struggle during the inter-war years, to end British colonial
rule, as well as in the need for representation on behalf of the Indian
Community in the post war development of the country. The MIC joined the Barisan Nasional
(National Alliance) in 1954
. The current head of the MIC is Dato' Seri S. Samy Vellu.
In recent times the MIC is thought to have failed the Indian community in Malaysia, which is beset by the problem of gangsterism.
