Reported in the media today:
“At least three non-Muslim pupils have left SK Seri Pristana in Sungai Buloh and 10 others are to follow – the result of alleged intimidation following the shower room incident.
The three who left earlier claimed they were intimidated and bullied by school authorities after the issue of non-Muslim pupils being ordered to have their recess in the school’s shower room surfaced.
At a Press conference today, it was revealed that the parents of 10 other non-Muslim pupils will be transferring their children out of the school following the arrest of a parent for allegedly intimidating the headmaster.
Non-governmental organisation Malaysia Tamilan Today Welfare Association national secretary K. Gunasegaran said these parents have lost all faith in the school’s headmaster and teachers.

There are 25 non-Muslim pupils among the 1,400 enrolled at the school.”
