ABSTRACT
The article discusses about the extent of insurrection prevailing in Malaya. After Malaya's first national elections the first act of the new government was to insist British High Commissioner to offer an amnesty to the Communist terrorists in the jungle in Asia. The bandits are on their last legs, and this gesture marks probably the last turning point in a stubborn war, which the Malayans and the British have been waging for seven years in the thickest jungle in Asia. What was new in the Communist-led insurrection that began in June 1948, was the scale of the banditry.
