Gone are the Punch Gunalans, Santokh Singh, Dr. Jegathesan, Yamuna Nairs, M. Karathu, etc, from the sports arena in Malaysia. Today it is an almost all Malay affair.
Government sports complexes are mostly built in Malay dominated areas and are excluded to the Indians. In the poor Indian neighbourhoods, sports and recreational activities are not built or are excluded to them.
Even the football fields where the Indian youths used to play football have mostly been wiped out for development.
