This study focuses on the minority Hindus and their interaction with the majority Malay-Muslim community. The Hindus of Malaysia since indepndance from colonial rule have been seriously marginalised owing to their lack of demographic, economic and political power. Islamic resurgance and strident calls for Islamisation of the state have adversely affected the Hindus and created apprehension in the community. This has resulted in auguementing Hindu religiousity and sense of identity. The alienation, ghettoisation and economic decline of the Hindus are pressing problems for the Malaysian nation.
