IT LOOKS LIKE ‘KETUANAN MELAYU’ IS VERY MUCH ALIVE IN SOME OF OUR SCHOOLS! Some teachers seem to believe that Indian and Chinese students are pendatang!
SMK Engku Husain in 2009 had 1628 boys and 1678 girls, making a total enrollment of 3306 people. It has a total of 173 teachers.
The teacher allegedly became angry after some students did not participate in singing the Negaraku during the weekly assembly at SMK Engku Husain in Semenyih, Kajang a few days ago
The assistant principal of SMK Engku Husain has reportedly apologised for telling his students to “go back to China and India”.
Quoting an anonymous staff member, Sin Chew Daily said the apology was tendered during a meeting with the parent-teacher association yesterday afternoon.
The staff member was quoted as saying that the issue was now considered resolved.
Sin Chew Daily further claimed that representatives from the district education department had also visited the school yesterday.

Should Malaysian Indians “BALIK INDIA”
Written by Christopher Fernandez, Malaysia Chronicle
YOURSAY ‘How is it that during my school days in the 50s and 60s, no principals ever told me to ‘balik Cina’ or ‘balik India’?
Another teacher tells students to ‘balik Cina, India’
Geronimo: Losing patience with the students is no excuse. How is it that during my school days in the 50s and 60s, no assistant principals or any educators in the school ever told me to ‘balik Cina’ or ‘balik India’?
Why is it that such a thing is happening so rampantly now. Over to you, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
Doc: Give a few days and I am confident that Deputy Education Minister P Kamalanathan will go down to SMK Engku Husain and make a statement that no racism was involved when the assistant principal of that school told the students to leave if they do not like Malaysia.
In fact, non-Malays have being doing so, taking along their talent and money to other countries and excelling there.
But what is hard to understand is that these same Umno fellows will later ask the non-Malays to come back to Malaysia under the ludicrous scheme called Talent Corporation Malaysia Bhd (Talent Corp).
JustAMalaysian: I can understand it if a year one primary school pupil does not know the Negaraku. For a secondary school pupil not to know how to sing the Negaraku, that is a different matter.
In this case, it is the school’s responsibility to teach it to the pupil. Something must have gone wrong somewhere. And for a secondary pupil not to respect the Negaraku when it is being played or sung, the pupil must be an idiot.
Whatever it is, it is not right for anybody to tell another person to “balik (return to) Cina, India or Indonesia” for whatever wrong the person may have done.

Assistant principal under probe for “balik India, China” remark
PETALING JAYA: An assistant principal of a secondary school is being investigated for allegedly telling some students to “balik India, China.”
Deputy Education Minister P Kamalanathan said the ministry was waiting for a report on the matter from officers handling the case.
“If indeed the allegations are true then the ministry will take appropriate action,” he told The Star Online.
PTA president Prof Datuk Ali Hasan lambasted teachers who felt it was acceptable to tell students to return to where their ancestors came from.
“In my opinion they need serious re-training to refresh their minds on acceptable teacher-student behaviour,” he said.
Lagi kes guru suruh pelajar ‘balik China, India’
Malaysiakini – 8 hours ago
Seorang guru sekolah menengah di Semenyih, Selangor didakwa meminta pelajar yang enggan menyanyi dan menghormati lagu kebangsaan agar “balik ke India (atau) China”.
Laporan Sin Chew Daily menyebut, pembantu pengetua di SMK Engku Husain berkata demikian semasa perhimpunan mingguan di sebelah petang pada 23 September.
Beliau didakwa meminta pelajar tersebut “balik” jika tidak menyukai Malaysia.
Akhbar tersebut melaporkan bahawa sekolah itu telahpun menjalankan siasatan ke atas perkara berkenaan, yang timbul apabila pelajar terbabit memuatkan perkara itu di laman Facebook mereka.
In what sounds like a repeat of recent incidents, a teacher in a secondary school in Semenyih, Selangor, is alleged to have told students refusing to sing and respect the national anthem to “go back to India (or) China”.
According to Sin Chew Daily, the assistant principal of SMK Engku Husain said during the afternoon session weekly assembly on Sept 23 that the students could “go back” if they did not like Malaysia.
The daily reported that the school was already investigating the matter, which came to the principal’s attention when ethnic Chinese students posted about it on their Facebook pages.
Principal Abdul Ghafar Kunchi Mohd told Sin Chew that the students, some of whom do not understand Bahasa Malaysia well, had been advised, warned and even caned for not singing or respecting the ‘Negaraku’, but to no avail.
“However, whether Malay, Chinese or Indian, everyone is Malaysian. This remark should not have been uttered. Therefore I will ask the assistant principal to apologise to students at the assembly,” he was quoted as saying.
