Malaysian politics has largely been centred around racialised narratives, which is bad in and of itself.
But what’s particularly interesting is how Indian Malaysians (almost similar to the Orang Asal or Orang Asli) are regularly not featured even in this racialised discourse. The narrative is always Malays versus Chinese.
But just how important is the Indian vote and what are the struggles the community faces? To explore this, BFM speaks to Dr Bridget Welsh, a honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham Malaysia’s Asia Research Centre.
