INDIAN youth with IT and computer knowledge should help people fill up the 2020 e-Census to ensure the community is fully represented, Makkal Osai reported community leaders as saying.

The Kerian district Malaysia Hindu Sangam chairman said it was important that Malaysian Indians participate in the census-taking.

Those familiar with IT should help the elderly or those unfamiliar with computers to do so, the report said.

It added that the low number of Indians pre-registered in the e-Census system indicated that most were likely not computer-literate.

> A Hindu priest in Seremban helped rescue more than a dozen homeless and abandoned people and gave them shelter in his ashram, Makkal Osai reported.

Sivasri Dr AL Ananda Gobi, who heads the Hindu priests association of Negri Sembilan and Melaka, said he was touched by the plight of those who were left homeless.

Some of them fell victim to drug addiction and alcoholism and ended up on the streets while others are abandoned by their families.

Seeing them begging on the streets and depending on handouts to survive was painful, so I decided to do something, Ananda said.
