DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng called upon authorities to call off probes into a video clip showing pupils singing Negaraku in Mandarin, saying the pupils had done nothing wrong.

However, Lim is clearly attempting to confuse people as the focus was never on the pupils, but the motives of those who compelled the pupils to do so.

An investigation simply translates into a discovery exercise where those conducting the investigation try to determine the root cause of an incident or phenomenon.

It is also necessary to discover the motives of the person who recorded the video as the camera or phone that did the recording seemed to have been placed on the teacher’s desk, making it seem as if the incident was deliberately recorded and distributed to trigger unrest.


PETALING JAYA: DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng has come forward to tell the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) how to do its job.

According to a news report, Lim called upon authorities to call off probes into a video clip showing pupils singing Negaraku in Mandarin.




Lim said DAP’s stand on the matter was clear, the national anthem should only be sung in Bahasa Melayu.

“The pupils had done nothing wrong.

“They were only singing from a text book published in 2014 and distributed to schools the following year by the Education Ministry.

“So, there is no need for any police investigation into the matter, whether the singing of the national anthem in Mandarin, Arabic or other languages, except Bahasa Melayu,” he said.

True.

However, Lim is clearly attempting to confuse people as the focus was never on the pupils but the motives of those who compelled the pupils to sing Negaraku in Mandarin.

That requires investigation.

An investigation simply translates into a discovery exercise where those conducting the discovery try to determine the root cause of an incident or phenomenon.

It is a form of systematic examination that is even used to establish the guilt or innocence of someone accused of wrongdoing or committing a crime.

At no point did anyone extabish anyone’s guilt or accuse the school of harbouring ill intent.

Investigations will simply allow authorities to determine the motives of those in question and facilitate the establishment of guidelines for schools to follow.

It is also necessary to discover the motives of the person who recorded the video as the camera or phone that did the recording seemed to have been placed on the teacher’s desk, making it seem as if the incident was deliberately recorded and distributed to trigger unrest.

Besides, the issue is clearly sensitive and of national interest which necessitates investigations by proper authorities to prevent anything untoward from happening.

I question Lim’s own motives for sticking his oars into the matter. He must be made aware that he has no business telling PDRM how to do its job as he is in office serving the Governent of Malaysia.

It is the same government that promised to go by the rule of law.

The fact that several police reports have been lodged in relation to the video clip makes it the lawful duty of PDRM to conduct investigations.

The clip was said to have been recorded on Sept 26, last year, at a SJK (C) in Seremban, Negri Sembilan.
