对种族主义零度容忍

在政治观上,在处理一些国会事物上,在其他事情上,我未必同意纳兹里(Nazri Aziz)。 但是看了这篇报道,我必须说,纳兹里在这个事情上的坚定立场,是我们在政坛少见的,是我们政坛需要的清流。

立场重点是:

(1) 政府应该马上毫无迟疑的采取行动,对种族主义的教育工作者零度容忍。

(2) 任何肤色的教育工作者,都不应该,言行上“种族主义”

(3) 不同意内政部长说,这是“少数”,纳兹里认为,教育界里,对种族主义,要零度容忍。一个[种族主义者] 也不能有。

(4) 各族人民融合完全没有问题,是领袖间在兴风作浪。

对就是对,不因为同一个阵营,对错误沉默。我们需要这样的从政者。

我更期望,明天的全国报章,会勇敢的报道,而不是讲给少数人听。

装载:Nazri pushes zero tolerance against racist principals

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 24 — Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz stepped up today to fill the palpable silence of his Cabinet colleagues over the racial uproar caused by two school principals, saying that the government should take severe action and show “zero tolerance” for such “racist educators”.

The Minister in the Prime Minister's Department skewered the opinion of Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein who had said the two school principals were merely a minority, by pointing out that there should be a “zero” number of racists in the education service. “I agree with the public on this... it is frightening to see our educators behaving like that. Severe action must be taken – we cannot, in any way, tolerate this,” he told The Malaysian Insider today.

The issue exploded recently when the SMK Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra school principal in Johor allegedly said during a school assembly that the Chinese were not needed in the country and could go back to China. She was also alleged to have likened the Indians to “dogs” for wearing their prayer strings which were similar to dog leashes.

Although her statement had caused an uproar, Education director-general Tan Sri Alimudin Dom claimed that the incident was a mere misunderstanding and had been resolved. The school principal was not reprimanded for her actions.

On the very day that Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin finally broke the government's silence by ordering a probe into the issue, yet another school head in Kedah was accused of uttering similar derogatory remarks.

The SMK Bukit Selambau headmistress was said to have accused the Chinese pupils of being insensitive to the Muslims for eating in the school compound during the Ramadan month and ordered them to return to China if they could not respect the cultures of other races.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has remained elegantly silent on both incidents, sparking insult from the opposition that he was as meek as his predecessor Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and was “afraid” to upset his own Umno men.

Hishammuddin, in the meantime, brushed off the matter by saying that the two principals were merely a “minority” and did not represent the majority of the country's school teachers. “Minority? That is not the point. I don't care about that. It’s not about whether it is a minority — not even one person in the education service should be a racist. “There should be zero tolerance for this,” said Nazri today.

He said he was “shocked” by the two incidents and was of the opinion that it did not matter if the two teachers were Malays or Muslims. “Who cares about their skin colour? So what if they are Malays? So, we protect them then? No way. It is what they said that should be our concern. When they cross the line, severe action must be taken,” he suggested.

Nazri however admitted that the matter was not under his jurisdiction and would not say if he meant that he wanted both principals to be sacked from the service entirely. “I do not want to interfere but to my personal opinion, this is unforgiveable. That is why I say – severe action, whatever it is, must be taken. We cannot have these kinds of people in our community.

“If it had been my teacher, I would have smacked his face. You are a teacher and you are supposed to be teaching us right things but yet, you talk like this,” he said.

Nazri noted that the government's failure to respond quickly and appropriately on the matter would only encourage more acts of racism by others. “Yes, of course they would be encouraged. That is why I said I want zero racists in the teaching service. No teacher, not a minority but not even one person, should be behaving like this.

“And it is not about the skin colour... if anyone, whether Malay, Chinese or Indian, behave like this, it is still wrong,” he said.

Nazri would not comment on the Prime Minister's silence on the matter.

When asked for his opinion on the status of the country's race relations, Nazri was quick to point out that the only problem lay with the nation's leaders. “Nothing wrong with the rakyat... only the leaders are getting all racial with one another. On the ground, the people are mixing well,” he said.

The Padang Rengas MP pointed out that in his constituency, there were no problems between the different racial communities. “They work well together. Only the leaders are talking a lot and behaving badly. That’s why I always believe that it is better for them to shut up and just go and work,” he said.

Umno, MCA and Malay rights groups like Perkasa and the Malays Consultative Council (MPM) have been openly squabbling with one another recently after MCA demanded for the abolishment of the 30 per cent Bumiputera equity target. Nazri had earlier stepped in to scold all sparring parties, chastising them for washing their dirty linen in public.
