In the football world, footballers and the associations are Advocating and Preaching to the fans,”Kick Racism out of Football” It seems racism is right at our door step in Malaysia and if this trend or names calling is not stopped it will really TURN UGLY ONE DAY. Are we just waiting it to ignited and then take the necessary actions..? Is this right when one who is supposed to teach our children to grow up in multi racial Malaysia is practising otherwise.?
This Malaysiakini report http://malaysiakini.com/news/98738 we took a special interests as it was headlined,”Anjing,keling’:Student files report. In his police report filed at the Selayang Baru police station last night, A Kuganeshwaran, 14 year old boy a form two student at SMK Darul Ehsan, said: “The teacher called me ‘anjing‘ (dog) and ‘keling‘.”
Even MIC president Samy Vellu did not mince his words when he said in Malaysiakini report ,”called for the immediate sacking of the teacher if he is found guilty.””If the case (allegation) is true, we don’t want the teacher to be transferred, but to be sacked immediately,”I view the action of the teacher very seriously and want an end to this kind of behavior.”
However, Samy Vellu said he was aware that the majority of the teachers were loyal to their profession and would not engage in such behaviour.
We say as always,”Action and an immediate probe is a neccesity and needs to be taken and FAST before it gets out of hand.
