Indonesia Bill Against Racial Discrimination

Indonesia on Wednesday 5 November 2008 passed a Bill Against Racial Discrimination, classifying racial discrimination as serious crime punishable by imprisonment. Leaders of public institutions which adopt discriminatory policies would face jail sentences. With a single bold step, Indonesia has now spurted ahead of poor Malaysia whose government practices racial discrimination.
