Perlis Mufti Datuk Mohd Asri Zainal Abidin has come out in support of a petition urging the government to prohibit vernacular schools in Malaysia.

The petition described vernacular schools as a “cancer” to Malaysian unity. TTF shares this view as the idea of Chinese parents being permitted to ‘cluster’ their children with others of a race at school level does nothing to foster unity and harmony.

Article 152 of the Federal Constitution only states that while the Malay language should be the national language, no person shall be prohibited from using other languages for teaching or learning.

The GoM has every right to nationalise vernacular schools at a moment’s notice without prohibiting Chinese and Tamil students from learning their respective mother tongues.

The GoM even has the right to make it a rule that no school in Malaysia is allowed to use any language other than Bahasa Melayu for communication purposes involving school authorities and pupils except during Chinese and Tamil language classes.


SUBANG JAYA: Perlis Mufti Datuk Mohd Asri Zainal Abidin has come out in support of a petition urging the government to prohibit vernacular schools in Malaysia.

The petition described vernacular schools as a “cancer” to Malaysian unity. TTF shares this view as the idea of Chinese parents being permitted to ‘cluster’ their children according to race does nothing to foster unity and harmony.




If anything, these kids grow up feeling patronisingly superior to the Malays and Indians and are more than likely to have very skewed opinions against members of other races.

It is a wonder how this has been allowed to go on for so long.

It is even more shocking that Dong Zong is trying very hard to get recognition for an exam that allows Chinese students entry into local universities without having to sit for SPM or STPM.

It seems that Dong Zong is bent on implementing its own education policies event though that task is constitutionally reserved only for the Government of Malaysia (GoM).

Things boiled over recently when the Chinese educationist group made a big fuss over a decision by the GoM to force the learning of jawi script upon school goers.

Article 152 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia and Section 9 of the National Language Act clearly states that jawi is part of the national language.

Dong Zong, however, went to town claiming that the introduction of jawi lessons and khat calligraphy would “Islamise education in Malaysia.”

Despite this being an outright lie and a matter of grave concern insofar as national security and harmony is concerned, the association got full support from both the MCA and the DAP.

Therein the problem.

Both the DAP and the MCA and even a mainstream news portal is giving the impression that the continued existence of vernacular schools is guaranteed by the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, when in fact, it is not.

Article 152 of the Federal Constitution only states that while the Malay language should be the national language, no person shall be prohibited from using other languages for teaching or learning.

The GoM has every right to nationalise vernacular schools at a moment’s notice without prohibiting Chinese and Tamil students from learning their respective mother tongues.

The GoM even has the right to make it a rule that no school in Malaysia is allowed to use any language other than Bahasa Melayu for communication purposes involving school authorities and pupils except during Chinese and Tamil language classes.
