Kuala Lumpur.Mar.8 (ANI): Malaysian Indians have found a new way to put forth their problems and express their views on latest the developments in the country.
A Yahoo discussion portal, malaysianindianclub.com (Miclub) has been receiving hundreds of hits with many postings regarding the Hindu Rights Action Force and the need for proper political representation to educational and job opportunities.
Miclub has about 10,000 members who have put together their efforts to create a business directory, collaborative group for information and communication technology professionals and a cooperative for Indian businesses.
G. Jegathesan, a Penang-based mechanical engineer, who initiated the idea of the club said his basic aim behind starting this new initiative was to help the community.
Jegathesan urged experts of various fields to come forward to share their knowledge, experience and offer information to Indian youths.
“They can provide the necessary guidance and mentorship and play a vital role in achieving our objectives to provide self-help measures, the NST quoted Jegathesan, as saying.
He said his motive is to ensure that Miclub remained non-partisan.
Jegathesan said he wanted the club to reflect the interests of the common people and play a role in the development of the country.
“I don”t mind doing data collection in particular to find out the community’’s real needs, its preferences and views on its intended role in the country’’s development, he added. (ANI)
