Datuk Seri Noh bin Omar is a Malaysian politician. He is the former Minister for Agriculture and Agro-based Industry and the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Tanjong Karang constituency in Selangor. He is a member of the United Malay National Organisation (UMNO) party in the governing Barisan Nasional coalition.
Noh was appointed to the Cabinet of Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi after the 2008 election as Minister for Entrepreneur and Co-operative Development. On 10 April 2009, he was appointed as Minister for Agriculture and Agro-based Industry by Abdullah's successor, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.
In 2005, while Deputy Minister for Internal Security, Noh made international news for his role in a controversy concerning the alleged mistreatment of an ethnic Chinese woman by Malaysian police. In response to the revelation of mistreatment and protests by the Chinese government, Noh reportedly stated "if foreigners think that Malaysia police are brutal, please go back to their own countries and not to stay here". Noh was reprimanded by Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi and Noh issued an apology for his comments that BBC News described as a 'grudging at best'. It was later revealed that the women was Malaysian of Malay decent, and she was detained for drug abuse.
