No statistics on locals marginalised but statistics on overstaying foreigners is available.

No official figures for Indians without B.C and IC but 40,000 Indian nationals missing in Malaysia (BH 13/1/02010 at page 2).

The UMNO led government was spot on with the 40,000 Indian nationals “missing in Malaysia, but despite 52 years of independence and with the back up of over 100,000 over civil servants, the official statistics for Indian children being denied birth certificates and Indians adults being denied their identity cards and citizenship is not available or inadequate.

We however estimate that there are about 150,000 Malaysian Indian minority children being denied their birth certificates and about 300,000 Malaysian Indian adults being denied their Identity cards and citizenship.
