My comments :
The Minister Jidin is a nice fellow. Like everyone else I am sure he likes to enjoy a nice peaceful day. Plus the fasting month is coming to an end. The Hari Raya is just a few days away. Surely there are so many things to do.
This episode is reflective of not just the education system but of the entire system of government.
Er...this is NOT a Perikatan Nasional problem ok. If you think this type of attitude just began with the PN government then you seriously need your own Hashtag.
This behaviour (the whole story) reflects the education system that has been created in this country since the 1970s. This did not happen in one day.
When you send your children to the government schools you really cannot predict what is going to happen to them or what will be the outcome of their school years.
And yes this is another Malay problem. It is a 'Satu Lagi Masalah Orang Melayu'.
As I said before you do not hear of such things in the Chinese schools or Tamil schools.
Pendek kata, this is not 'normal' behaviour. That is what it really means. While the rest of the world can get along fine, behaving normally in a normal day, just doing normal things.
So it becomes another case of 'kita lawan depa' or 'us versus everyone else'.
The views expressed are those of the writer and do not necessarily reflect those of MMKtT.
