Student not allowed to attend class for wearing ‘baju kurung’
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14, 2015:
An allegation has surfaced that a public secondary school in Cheras near here has barred a new Form 3 student from entering class as she was wearing a baju kurung which the school claimed was against the dress code.
The student’s father, Lawrence Jayaraj, alleged that he was told by the school that only Malay Muslim students were allowed to wear baju kurung while non-Muslim and non-Malay students could not.
In an immediate response, Deputy Education Minister P. Kamalanathan, who had not been informed of the matter earlier advised parents to take such matters to the District Education Office.
“If the matter is not sorted out at the District Education Office, then take it to the State Education Office and it should be sorted out by then.
“If it is not sorted out by the time it reaches the state level, I will get involved,” pledged Kamalanathan.Read more: http://www.therakyatpost.com/news/2015/01/14/student-not-allowed-attend-class-wearing-baju-kurung/#ixzz3Op1rKPEv
The above response to a simple problem is typical of this BN government. Woi Kamalanathan.......why do you not just make an "executive" decision and say whether the student can or cannot wear a baju kurung to school.....habis cerita. What this Deputy Minister of Education is doing reminds me of Sergant Schultz in Hogan Heros...please spend a few minutes viewing the following clip and you will know what I mean.
