Ashok Malik is an incisive analyst and an elegant writer - here he opens up a few more windows into the Malay Indian's world.
I did not know about Mamaks - nor indeed about Anwar Ibrahim's closet Iyer background. It must surely explain the charges of sodomy and other perversions on him. Nothing good seems to come out of the "Bumi-Putras" . The Malay are a deeply racist people - and with Islam, they have found a weapon for mobilizing their hate.
The only place where I disagree with Malik is that the Malay Indians will surely not look to Dhimmi-India; perhaps the crypto-christist LTTE are a better bet - no?
