In Malaysia It Pays To Hurl Racial Abuse At Students. Racist Teacher Rewarded.

From AsiaOne, Singapore
It obviously pays to hurl racial abuse at students, going by what happened to the teacher who did so at a school here. The 35-year-old history teacher from SM Telok Panglima Garang was not only transferred to a smart school but to one located nearer her house.

To add insult to injury, no disciplinary action was taken against her.

It is understood that her letter of transfer stated that she was being transferred due to concerns for her security and not because she had committed an offence.

Several parents and non-governmental organisations gathered in front of the school yesterday demanding an explanation from the headmaster for letting her off with just a slap on the wrist.

However, the headmaster refused to meet them, saying the matter was no longer related to the school since the teacher had been transferred.

Coalition of Indian NGOs secretary G. Gunaraj said the transfer showed the teacher had got away scot-free.

"In fact, she even got a better deal. She is now in a better school and one that is nearer to her house."

He said this set a dangerous precedent as others may think they too can get away scot-free uttering racial slurs.

He said the Education Ministry should be serious in tackling the issue as what the teacher had done could affect racial harmony.

Gunaraj said some teachers in the school were blaming the affected students for lack of a history teacher.

"This should not be the case. Does it mean that students should keep quiet, no matter what a teacher does?"

In the incident last month, the teacher allegedly told students of a certain ethnic group in a Form Four class that she "wanted to test their level of patience" and then began abusing them with derogatory words.

She even wrote the words on the blackboard. Two students later lodged police reports against her.

Several days earlier, she had allegedly entered a Form Five class and called the students using a derogatory word. She also accused them of being gangsters and thieves.

She was also alleged to have ordered the boys to do push-ups. When some of them could not do so, she allegedly stomped on their backs.

Last Monday, nearly 500 parents and members of the public gathered to protest in front of the school.

Meanwhile, Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said the ministry had instructed the State Education Department to initiate an inquiry and that the teacher "had some explaining to do".

State Education director Ashah Samah said she had wanted to transfer the person out of the state but had acceded to a request from the teacher to remain in the district.

She said the transfer letter was issued by the district education department and that she would investigate claims that security had been stated as the reason for the move.
***** When the whole education department itself is bloody racial to the core, can we expect any meaningful and reasonable action by these people against a fellow racist? Just read the statement by the State Education director Ashah Samah. She said that she had wanted to transfer the person out of the state but had acceded to a request from the teacher to remain in the district! What compassion!

When the government itself practices open discrimination and racism can you expect something better from these nutcases? Malaysia Boleh!

Update: Samy Vellu: Why ‘reward’ racist teacher?

the teacher got away easily.it's not fair!

i was expecting either the teacher to be sacked or asked to go for counselling but alas the teacher got transfered nearby her house!.

a stern action is needed for such matter.this might make other people believe that people can get away with racism easily.

What to do, this is our system. I'm not surprise because it already happened since my school time and happened to my class involving our History teacher too. I'm now 30's. All that happened was the teacher transfered to another school, back to P Msia, nearer to her home town. No warning, no counselling, no demoted.

It hopeless! We are living in a country run by RACIST government, manned by RACIST civil servants. Simple as that. Just learn to survive or move somewhere. The rot has gone too deep. Even if the government changes the rot in the civil service will take at least two or three generations to change.

No disciplinary action is being taken against the teacher, because the Ministry does not see anything wrong with her conduct !

What a sick regime...

Yup, the education ministry should take seriously such issue cause this could cause riots of public disorder affected from unstable racial harmony.

As long as one cannot be sacked from being a civil service, such behaviour will continue to propagate. The BN-Umno gov will support any racist for the sake of their votes.

In Malaysia, It pays

1) to be a racist teacher.
2) to be a corrupted politician.
3) to be a crooked judge.
4) to NOT pay your suppliers.

Ironically in the end, it's the RAKYAT who are paying!

COME AUGUST 26TH, IT WILL BE PAY-BACK TIME!!!

Anonymous,
This happens because there is no morals in the Government. What the teacher has done is nothing compared to getting caught with bags of money in Australia and is now a Minister in fcuking Bodowi cabinet. Shout and yell as much as you want, nothing will change until umno is got rid off. UMNO will protect the muslims irregardless of what they have done, unless of course umno is threatened, ISA can be used against RPK when, what he said only affects the fcuking DPM who is more slimmy than Samy. How can ISA be used to protect a stupid ass of DPM ??? We are in bolehland so everything is boleh ! boleh !
And not forgetting who is the Education Minister....Kerismuddin another fcuking umno asshole.
Hancur Kerajaan BN

There is no culture of accountability in this regime starting from the top.Someone should publish a picture of this racist pig and make sure her records are well known to students and parents of the the new school.

It pays even more to accuse another of Sodomy in Malaysia. What about the umno rep who ran amok and disrupted an otherwise intellectual forum and started to get obsessed with PIGS and SWINES. Looked more like he got possessed by the PIGs spirit during this month of the Ghosts. Still, he must have got rewarded since there is no sign of him being punished.

Dear All,
What the fuss about this again? One particular race in this country (not Malays) have been practicing racism for years & none of us make a fuss out of it. Why? Because they are doing it indirectly. Eg : '??? Speaking Candidates Preferred' in their job advertisement. Is this not racist? I'm not trying to justify the teacher's action & yes its true enough two wrongs doesn't make it right, but let be realistic. My advice to the protesting parents/NGOs is : don't waste your time, concentrate on your economic activities to improve your and children's future.

Let move on with our lives, stop wasting time on this. TQ.

To anynomuos 9:49pm MYT :

How do you feel if someone publishes your picture on the Net? Remember : 'Innocent until proven guilty' prevails. Have some respect to other people, will you? Don't call other people with names your don't like to be called to you. Do you like to be called 'pig'? Your words show the quality of your mind.

I believe that the teacher, upon full investigation, if proven guilty should be punished according to the terms of her employment & since this is part of Civil Service the punishment is as meted out in GO. Full stop. We can't trial her her in the blog like this. Let hear her side of the story.

I think you need to check what the definition of racist/racism is because you've made yourself appear very ignorant.

Speaking a language is a learned skill. I'm ethnically Chinese but I can't speak Cantonese/Mandarin or even Hokkien well (I'm ashamed to say). Thus, I won't even be short listed for a job that prefers Cantonese speaking skills for example. It's simply because I lack the skills for the job. NOT racism!

It is sad that no one is publishing the version of the teacher's part in this sordid episode. Her birth; family; upbringing; schools and colleges (?) attended shuld all give one a background on this lady's outbursts. Has one bothered to know how she gets along with her colleagues in the school; how she got along with ner colleagues in school and college (?) and as to whether her college or school were the 'breeding' grounds for similar episodes which seem to explode off and on all over the Nation.

Possibly her family life may be in shambles or she may have had some or more distressing episodes with Indians in the past which makes her to target her 'victims' at school.

One must be sorry for this woman. She makes it clear that she is out of the ordinary in this world. Perhaps the Higher Education Ministry should consider a higher position for her in one of the 'Higher' institutes of learning to permit her to vent her feelings there too so that people in the know about psychology could fathom her 'disease' and treat her 'diseased' mind.

diaspora,

Perhaps you can help her ? Even Samy Vellu cannot tahan !

The 35 year's old Malay lady teacher's name is Pn. Rusnita Abu Hassan and it is quoted that she is a recipient of an award for outstanding performance from the Pejabat Pendidikan Daerah Kuala Langat recently. SURPRISE!!!! (this news courtesy of Prana by A. Premnath)

Shai-hulud,

Don't pretend that you do not know. (BTW this is the smartest thing from a certain group of people in this country: they do it intentionally but they always pretend that they do not aware) The one and only reason for the special clause in the advertisement is to make sure that the candidates are from a certain racial group.

Stop wasting my & your time/web space, please. Do something else more beneficial.

Racism is bad. I see most comments are really racist in nature. Some Indians and Chinese that I know are also racist. But we get along well. The issue is overblown.
