Ooops....it has apparently been decided.
Just saw this,
Referring to protests by certain quarters over the matter, the prime minister said those objecting voices were from only a small segment of society.
He said the government was steadfast in its policy of shared prosperity and had never stopped the use of other languages’ writings.
“We have never objected to other writings (including) in Chinese as this is something special in our country.
“Chinese language writings are not allowed in other countries such as Indonesia, for instance, (and in) the Philippines and Thailand, they use their own (language) writings,” he said when answering a question on the khat objections posed by a participant of the Semarak Merdeka Town Hall session with the Prime Minister here.
Well, I guess Pakatan can win some extra Malay votes for this one.
I'm actually supporting this,
Yup, we should not force people in these sort of things.
We are in Malaysia, not China, okay.
We cannot do things like this;
Whomever at the Education Ministry that came up with this idea of introducing "khat" in the BM school subject and forcing students at Chinese schools to learn it are quite dense.
They can't even do it at sekolah kebangsaan, okay.
Seriously, how many of you all from sekolah kebangsaan who can write in Jawi, let alone do the khat?
Not many, right?
By the way, I can write Jawi, but not the khat.
I don't really understand why the NUTP supported the idea.
It only creates trouble.
Why must they disturb the Chinese schools again in this era of Malaysia Baru?
We allowed the Chinese schools to exist in this country because the Chinese community wanted their own school system.
That's to preserve their racial identity and culture.
Why then that we now want to force them to be otherwise?
It's stupid, okay.
Anyway, where are the DAP leaders?
Are they going to join the Chinese educationists' protest on Monday?
I think the MCA people will be there.
I'm alright with that.
At least they are honest about being Chinese.
At least they are not hypocrites.
Well, I believe I have been consistent when it comes to Chinese school issues.
Here's a previous post of mine ;
