NAGERCOIL (18 Feb. 2008): all-party committee headed by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi to look into the problems of ethnic Indians in Malaysia.

Hindu Munnani founder leader Rama Gopalan told reporters here today that ethnic Indians, especially Tamils, had made Malaysia a prosperous country but were "facing oppression" at present.

He said the political parties in Tamil Nadu should join hands to find a solution to the issue.

Gopalan had also led a demonstration in front of the Malaysian Embassy in Chennai yesterday.

The Malaysian police had used water canons and fired tear gas against a protest rally by the Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) yesterday in Kuala Lumpur.
