Another school principal has caused racial tension in allegedly asking the non-Malay students to go back to India or China.
PETALING JAYA: Barely a week after the headmaster of SK Seri Pristana in Sungai Buloh came under fire for instructing his non-Malay students to have their recess meals in a changing room, another secondary school principal has allegedly raised racial tension.
This time it is alleged that the headmistress told non-Malay students to go back to India or China.
The principal of SM Alam Megah in Section 27 Shah Alam had apparently told noisy non-Malay students to go back to their native land during the school assembly last Monday.
Shah Alam MIC division deputy chairman A Prakash Rao who brought the incident to FMT’s attention said he had received numerous complaints from parents over the issue.
He also requested the Education Ministry to conduct an investigation over the issue which irked the Chinese and Indian parents.
Prakash Rao said that he was shocked to hear parents claiming the secondary school principal had used such insensitive language on students.
According to him, the principal was enraged during her assembly speech as the students were noisy.
“The principal scolded all the students including Malays. However, she lost her control and asked the non-Malay students to go back to India or China.
“We are still not sure whether the allegation is true or not. Thus, MIC urges the Education Ministry to a do a thorough investigation of the matter.
“If the incident really happened, then the principal must be punished for creating racial tension,” Prakash Rao said.
Prakash Rao said that the parents are afraid to lodge police reports over the issue as it may affect their children’s future.
He further said that an attempt to meet the principal today failed as she is on leave.
Prakash Rao confirmed that he is arranging a meeting between the principal, local leaders and the parents to obtain a clearer picture on this matter.
