MIC inviting Indian youths from all quarters to also come forward with their own proposals on how to solve this pressing problem.

Some of the recent updates on that matter :

MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has called on parents to monitor their children so that they would not get involved in undesirable activities, reported Makkal Osai.

He said parents should cooperate with schools to act against the increasing number of disciplinary cases and gangsterism.

“A good upbringing by a caring family will help children become good citizens,” he said at the Prevention of Crimes seminar, adding that poverty had also resulted in many disciplinary cases and other social problems in the slums.

Why is there an increase in crime rate among the Indian community?’

Parents need to play a more active role in helping to reduce crime, said Johor Unity, Human Resource, Science, Tech­nology and Innovation Committee chairman M. Asojan.

He said it was important that parents keep an alert eye on their children so that they do not mix with the wrong crowd, and involving themselves in negative activities.

“Years ago, our parents worked hard in the estates during the day and spent a lot of time with their children after coming home from work.

“These days, parents tend to work the whole day and some even taking up two or three jobs to support the family,” he said at a Tamil forum organised by MIC Putera on the topic ‘Why is there an increase in crime rate among the Indian community?’

Asojan said there should be more communication between parents and children to build an understanding between them.

“Instead of satisfying their children’s material needs, parents should also spend more time with them so they would not be influenced by the wrong crowd,” he said.

Some 40 students gathered at the Johor Tourist Information Centre (JOTIC) as three student speakers and three guest speakers spoke on the subject, discussing the likes of parenting, religion and peers.

One student speaker, Temeng­gong Ibrahim Teaching Institute (IPTI) student R. Jamunari, believed more opportunities should be given to the public to attend the National Service (NS).

“I am speaking as a former NS trainee and I have learnt a lot from my experiences during the three-month period.

“The trainees are taught on development skills, positive thinking and how to blend in with the society,” she said, adding that NS may be one of the ways to curb crime.

One participant M. Surindren, 24, said he had an enjoyable time listening to the forum.

“According to one of the speakers, most of the occupants at the Simpang Renggam jail are Indians and the statistics speak clearly for itself.

“Johor has one of the highest crime rates and I hope more forums like these can be held in the future,” said the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) research assistant.
