Racist principal should be sacked to discourage others from doing the same

August 18, 2010

Education ministry should act firmly and decisively by sacking the racist principal from Kulaijaya, Johor, to send a clear message to other would be racist, that the government is serious about 1 Malaysia. It is unacceptable for any reason whatsoever for a principal of a secondary school in Malaysia to utter racist innuendos after 54 years of independence. What kind of school heads have the ministry of education trained and employed. Instead of fostering closer relations and encouraging  acceptance of each other students of various races as one Malaysian race, the head mistress has chosen to be otherwise.    

The fact that no UMNO leader has condemned or recommended stern action on the principal shows that they subtly support the utterance of the racist head mistress. DPM and education minister should have called for the sacking of this racist head mistress. He has disappointed and let down the non-Malay communities in this country. UMNO and its leaders have shown their true colour on this matter by remaining silent.   

 DPM Muhyiddin Yassin’s call to Datuk Chuah Soi Lek not make offensive statement that can cause anger or are prejudicial to other races smacks with racism, double standards and hidden agendas. It clearly shows the UMNO leadership has no regards to the struggle and cause of other component parties and is totally ignorant to the fact that these parties have been reduced to irrelevancy due to the racist agendas of UMNO. Government leaders have squandered the strength of ethnic diversity of Malaysia into stumbling blocks for harmony and economic progress.

It is very unfortunate that the secondary which is the molding ground to inculcate tolerance, understanding of communities and acceptance of each other being allowed to instill hatred and distort history. Is this school in Kulaijaya, Johor the tip of iceberg? If insinuations of this nature can take place in school with 2200 students and 150 teachers comprising about 40% non-malays, what more can similar heads utter in Malay populated schools? It is for this reason the ministry must act firmly and decisively by sacking the head mistress. Anything less is totally unacceptable.       

This country grew and developed with the contribution of non Malays too. 85% of tax payers in this country are non Malays especially the Chinese. UMNO leaders have to be more responsible and come out of their siege mentality and accept that Malaysia belongs to every Malaysian and not only to UMNOPutras alone.
