In 2013, Malaysian authorities disclosed that ethnic Indians made up 71% of the 40,313 gangsters in Malaysia has divided the community, with some complaining about racial profiling but others acknowledging the sad fact.
There are some 2 million Indians in Malaysia, a relatively small minority, so the revelation by the Home Ministry last year of their over-representation in gangsterism has sparked anger and fear in a section of the Indian community worried about racial profiling.
How do we curb gangsterism ?
There are three ways .
1. To engage the misguided youth by bringing them to better path.
2. Arrest them ( how many can we arrest?)
3. Shoot them (for authority)
What is the best way in your opinion? to arrest and kill each and every misguided youth? Then we will have some clowns in gowns who will be coming in solidarity to claim justice for the gone.
“I used to run drugs. A man would bring a slab of heroin from Penang. It was like a brick. On the train, he would leave the slab away from where he sat. I would then pick it up and take it to Johor — by car, by bus, even by motorcyle — through all the small towns. That was more than 10 years ago. I was paid RM15,000 for every trip.”Extracted from The Star Online "Exclusive: Poverty driving them to gangsterism" , September 6 , 2013
How long are we going to distance ourself from the youth who needs proper guidance and attention ? They need to be engaged and inclusive effort needed to keep them in the mainstream of development. The more we ignore them, the worst they become.
