India's import curbs big blow to Malaysian palm oil
KUALA LUMPUR: India move to restrict palm oil imports from Malaysia will create a huge challenge for the world second biggest producer of the edible oil as India has been its top market for the past five years.
India, the world largest buyer of edible oils, last week restricted imports of refined palm oil and effectively halted all palm oil purchases from Malaysia in retaliation over the Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad's comments on Kashmir and citizenship law.

destroy their economy by persuading our allies too to boycott the terrorist nation
What about Indian owned shops in Malaysia? Locals should boycott them eh.
A huge amount if Indians live and work in,malaysia who will face issues as well. Indians find it better to work even in countries like uganda and sudan, so i guess its not a big deal. Those in malaysia will move to one of these places.
Economic warfare. Just like what USA does.
First time in 70 years after independence India has shown the courage to show other country her place
It is high time that Malaysia is brought to its knees.
it's a bad decision..This is gonna increase the oil prices and ppl are going to suffer. this will increase the food inflation ....
Really good decision by the Indian Government. But we need to push harder. The decision to substitute the supply with Indonesian palm oil will further strengthen our relationship with Indonesia. As Indian citizens we can lend further support by not visiting Malaysia for tourism purpose. Next target should be Chinese products
This is a very excellent step taken by the go nment. Just imagine if our GDP were 14%-25% growth rate per annum - we would be respected by every country on earth. Thai is how China got to where it is, and we should do the same.
good move indians should also stop visiting Malaysia and turkey for tourism. they support pakistan against India and we are finding their country
It is a right decision of the Govt. The Malaysian tourism boosted mainly because of Indian tourists and now India shouldn't give a chance. If they come back India should demand for more relaxation
India has taken such bold step for the first time.Congratulation Modi.Indian tourists should shun Kualalampur.
Because of this move, Indian origins, majority of them are Hindus, who settled several hundreds years in Malaysia, will be affected. Because the Hindus mainly work in the Palm production and rubber gardens.
They need to learn how to mind their own business..
indian curbs must extnd to all prodcts.
Now we need to watch whether China buys all the rejected oil by India?
ban tourism and flights. it will be big blow
You cant bully india anymore under modi govt, we are with him.
Can't Bully India anymore, this is not Congress Govt.
