Perak Mufti Tan Sri Dr Harussani Zakaria urged the public not to be easily influenced by the demands of those who question the introduction of Jawi lessons at vernacular schools.

“I would like to remind those who are involved in the movement to review Article 152 of the Federal Constitution and Sections 9 and 10 of the National Language Act 1963/67.

“What we are doing is clearly to maintain the survival of Jawi and Arabic numerals.

“Should they refer to Article 152 of the Federal Constitution, Jawi is part of Bahasa Melayu, the national language,” he said in a statement.


IPOH: Perak Mufti Tan Sri Dr Harussani Zakaria urged the public not to be easily influenced by the demands of those who question the introduction of Jawi lessons at vernacular schools.

Harussani said they could jeopardise national security and racial unity.




He said Jawi was protected under Article 152 of the Federal Constitution, which deals with the national language.

“It is sad as there are still voices that impede racial unity in the country by urging the Education Ministry to hold a dialogue on Jawi writing in schools.

“I would like to remind those who are involved in the movement to review Article 152 of the Federal Constitution and Sections 9 and 10 of the National Language Act 1963/67.

“What we are doing is clearly to maintain the survival of Jawi and Arabic numerals.

“Should they refer to Article 152 of the Federal Constitution, Jawi is part of Bahasa Melayu, the national language,” he said in a statement.

Harussani said those who questioned the rights of Jawi could be investigated under the Section 3 (1) (f) of the Sedition Act 1948.

In early August last year, the cabinet had agreed that vernacular schools would teach only Jawi at the basic level, and not khat.

This will be done only with the consent of students, parents and Parent-Teacher Associations.

The Education Ministry decided that the segment would be named “Introduction to the Jawi script” and would be taught on an elective basis to students in vernacular schools in Year 4 this year, Year 5 next year and Year 6 in 2021.
