Enough tolerance! Abolish vernacular schools as Chinese ‘racist’, Putrajaya told
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 25 — The government should stop kow-towing to the ethnic Chinese and adopt a tougher stand where education is concerned, including abolishing their vernacular schools, controversial Muslim convert Ridhuan Tee Abdullah said today.
The lecturer at Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UnisZA) claimed the community to be “racist” and “ultra kiasu” and had not shown gratitude for all the government’s tolerance of their demands, pointing to reports of a Chinese principal who had allegedly made racial remarks against a Malay teacher at a vernacular primary school in Mersing, Johor as evidence to support his argument.
“When national schools can accept a non-Malay headmaster, why can’t Chinese schools accept a non-Chinese headmaster? Who is more racist?” he asked in his column published today by Malay daily Sinar Harian.
“Do you realise, Malays had tolerated a lot towards vernacular schools that only exist in Malaysia? Is it not enough yet? Learn to be grateful,” the Chinese-Muslim said, addressing ethnic Chinese.
While the authorities have dismissed the incident as a racial act, Tee claimed otherwise and said the incident should serve as an “eye opener” to the government to be firm when dealing with the demands of the Chinese community.
“When it happens to us, they say let’s not racialise this thing. When it happens to them, they accuse us of being racist. As if we are the only ones who are racist,” he said.
In a laundry list of suggestions, he urged the government to place more Malay teachers in vernacular Chinese schools instead of transferring them out and making non-Chinese the principals.
“They should also do away with Remove classes,” Tee said, referring to the transitional class for primary schoolers in vernacular schools who failed the national language.
“If a student fails in BM, they must be sent to a language camp for two years,” he said.
He also urged the government to reconsider building more vernacular schools to cater to the Chinese demands and suggested instead they be shut down if there are fewer than 100 students.
In the same vein, Tee urged the Barisan Nasional (BN) government to redouble efforts and prevent the Pakatan Harapan opposition from winning the next elections as they were then more likely to cater to the demands of the “ultra kiasu” community who form the bulk of the urban population.
“Doesn’t matter how much you give them, they will still vote for the ultra kiasu. Don’t expect them to vote BN,” he said.
