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.
