Dong Zong faces de-registration, so Dapsters may soon get their non-divisive M’sian First school

July 31, 2015 at 3:48 pm 44 comments

Today is past the July 30 deadline given Dong Zong by Registrar of Societies to resolve the association’s protracted leadership fight. Two warring factions are claiming to be the legitimate office bearers representing the Chinese school committees.

Earlier on Monday (July 27), the High Court advised Dong Zong to settle its bitter internal dispute after hearing applications for injunction order.

Dong Zong faces the risk of de-registration should it still fail to resolve the crisis between incumbent Yap Sin Tian (that dubious PhD man) and sec-gen Poh Chin Chuan who claims to be the new Dong Zong president.

Dong Zong is the body responsible for issuing the Unified Examination Certificate.

The UEC is a standard exam taken by those studying in Malaysia’s 60 Chinese independent high schools. It is accepted for university entry, enabling more than 25,000 secondary school students to continue their tertiary education in selected countries (Taiwan, China, Singapore, etc).

Should Dong Zong be deregistered, the UEC would be cast in limbo. Discontinuance of the UEC will in turn upset the entire structure of independent secondary Chinese education.

Racist! Racist! Racist!

Malaysia schools (not “racist” Chinese and “racist” Tamil schools) is what the DAP wants and fighting hard for – same as how this exemplary multiracial, multicultural party is fighting to remove the ‘race’ box from all government and official registration forms.

It was the MCA (and not the DAP) which was recently asked to help Dong Zong mediate the serious matter.

DAP, on the other hand, wants Malaysian Malaysia while at the same time repudiating any identification with the Chinese race because anything “race-based” in the DAP’s eyes is “racist” and “divisive”.

The evangelical party wants us (of Chinese descent) to be known as Bangsa Anak Malaysia, and not as “Chinese”. See Hannah Yeoh’s tweet below telling about her determination for her daughter to be registered in the birth cert as “Malaysian only” (“no Indians”, “zero Chinese”.)

Hannah Yeoh on Twitter an appeal to @NajibRazak to allow my child

M’sian First ideology supports united M’sian national education

Since the MCA is the Malaysian ‘CHINESE’ Association, it’s quite obvious why it would insist on Chinese education.

The DAP, on the contrary, does not adhere to any ethnic identification at all. The party is only motivated by “Democratic Action”. Hence the DAP supports democracy/fairness and equality in our school system and rejects the “divisiveness” in segregating the Malays, Chinese and Indians into their respective race-based environments.

According to the DAP, it is MCA’s ethnic silo approach that has caused “disharmony” among the various races today. And Umno’s racism, needless to say.

DAP furthermore accuses MCA of being anti-Islam (i.e. anti-hudud) and holding Chinese “extreme views” with regard to Muslims and their religious practices such as covering the hair when entering mosques.

Listen to the voice of the Chinese who voted their choice

According to the DAP Malaysian First formula, the best way forward to a united Malaysia is to eliminate racism by doing away with race-identification. Sekolah Jenis Kebangaaan CINA is just the type of “race-based” division that the DAP so abhors in the same way it abhors the MCA and Umno (United MALAY National Organization).

See Hannah Yeoh’s tweet below – “Race-based BN must go!”

Twitter - hannahyeoh- Race-based BN must go

Malaysia First, Malaysian Malaysia, Anak Malaysia is the DAP’s preferred blueprint. Following the DAP prescription, all Malaysian children should be placed under one roof so that they can study together and not be kept apart.

Schools for Malays separately, schools for Chinese separately and schools for Indians separately is so “divisive”! “Racist! Racist! Racist!” you can hear the Dapsters chant.

In the Malaysian First national school, the medium of instruction is quite naturally the National Language, stipulated as bahasa Melayu under Article 152 of the Federal Constitution.

To achieve the DAP’s vision of Anak Malaysia, all our schoolchildren will be taught their lessons in bahasa Malaysia. This is what the DAP wants and the DAP represents a solid 90 percent of the Chinese electorate. It’s quite clear that the DAP is speaking for the Chinese community.

The MCA which commands only 10 percent of the Chinese community support can be safely ignored by the policymakers. They are a small minority interest only.

BELOW: Hannah Yeoh tweeted, “no point educating racist parties”

hannah racist parties

Vox populi – the voice of the people is heard through the ballot box. DAP, in garnering the overwhelming majority of the Chinese vote is the voice of the Chinese. The government should consider giving the Chinese what the DAP has been vociferously clamouring for – Malaysian First and the use of the national language in the classroom for all.

Say ‘No’ to “divisiveness”!!

Will the government give the DAP what they want please?! DAP wants Malaysians to look past race and look past vernacular education.

Now, thanks to the stridently colour blind DAP, racism will soon be coming to an end.

ROS deregistering Dong Zong is the first step towards realizing Kit Siang and the DAP’s long-cherished aspiration of Malaysian Malaysia.

The government should think about the future of our country, about “unity”, about putting aside “divisiveness” and give in to the DAP’s most reasonable demands.

The DAP’s Malaysian First ideology finds Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan CINA to be most backward and objectionable at a time when we’re trying so hard to come together as “brothers and sisters” and consigning “Race’ categorization to the dustbin of history.

Make the Chinese happy. Give the DAP what its wants. As Hannah Yeoh exclaims, “Folks let’s move beyond race!’

      You all should press Umno politicians to tell the Malays that the basis of DAP’s Firster ideology supports 1Sekolah, unlike MCA’s Cina-Cina-Cina totok outlook.

      And tell the Malays that the Chinese voters have totally rejected MCA and are wholeheartedly supporting the DAP instead. So the gomen doesn’t need to jaga hati the MCA anymore.

      The gomen must now listen to the popular voice of the Chinese through their representative the DAP that wants Malaysian schools where there’s no more “divisiveness” and all children are taught in the Malaysian national language.

      If Chinese schools are abolished so that there is no more divisive segregation, then all Malaysia must thank the DAP for its Malaysian First foresight and making Bangsa Anak Malaysia a reality.

        Let’s not forget the study of English.

        And Maths, Science and Computer Science – the “hard disciplines”.

        The performance of Malaysian students in the latest International Math Olympiad (#57 in rankings when the US was #1, if I remember right) and the Pisa rankings show that Malaysian schools and students need a lot of help.

        Of course, no one wants to claim the “credit” for the present performance of Malaysian students and the standards of Malaysian schools.

        The “Chinese schools” are a convenient scapegoat, is all, in a game of political football.

          Going by the logic of the DAP’s Firster ideology, Chinese schools are “racist” and “divisive”.

          The MCA and I personally may not agree with the above conclusion but our views represent only 10 percent of the Chinese electorate.

          The gomen should listen to the DAP who speaks for 90 percent of Chinese voters. They and the party they voted overwhelmingly for want Malaysian First schools for the children. “Let’s move beyong race, folks!” says the DAP leaders.

              re: “A Constitutional amendment?”

              No need. This issue has already been brought before the highest court of the land. The justices rejected Merdeka University’s application to establish a Chinese-language university. Only the right to learn one’s mother tongue is protected, not the separate vernacular education stream that is funded by the state.

              Also read the details of Mark Koding’s sedition case. The judge said he was seditious in proposing to amend the FedCon – some basic structure you mustn’t usik suka-suka. But he was not seditious for suggesting that vernacular schools be abolished.

              re: “Should be easy enough, right?”

              It can be done. The first step is the deregistration of Dong Zong which in turn will render the UEC invalid.

                Vernacular schools have no constitutional basis/guarantee. It does not mean that if something has no constitutional basis/guarantee, then it is unconstitutional or illegal.

                The basis of vernacular schools is protected by the Education Act. Unless you want to say that the Act or part of it (the part that protects vernacular schools) is illegal, vernacular schools will continue to exist.

                      It’s the same with other areas. e.g. What’s to stop the relevant minister to close down, an airport, say.

                      re: What is to stop the Education Minister from closing down a Chinese school?

                      Just a simple research here:
                      http://www.mca.org.my/en/no-pact-to-limit-number-of-chinese-independent-schools/

                      “Fong, who served as deputy education minister when the Education Act was amended in 1996, explained that the government decided to amend the Education Act 1961 in order to resolve the issue involving provision 21B of the Act.

                      “Under the provision, all the vernacular schools can be converted into national schools. When Anwar was the education minister, he was mandated by the prime minister to amend the provision due to the Chinese community’s concerns.

                      “However, he did not do it until Najib Abdul Razak became education minister in 1995. Within one year, Najib managed to push for 21B to be removed,” he said.”

                      Looks like the provision that allow SRJKC to be converted into national schools was removed. In other words, it means ‘to close down SRJKC’ by way of conversion.

                      I have not come across of any news that vernacular schools being closed down. Relocation is common. Do give source if you have news on the contrary.

                      Usually if an Act provides the power for a Minister to establish something, the power to demolish such thing must also be provided in the Act.

              “constitutional amendment?”.

              No need to amend Constitution. Constitution does not mention anything on Vernacular schools.

              Constitution only guarantees the legitimate interests of non Malays besides articulating on provisions for Malays.

              Among others, constitution upholds the right to learn, practise ‘bahasa ibunda”.

                FedCon also didn’t say anything on a lot of things. But these things are not illegal or unconstitutional. Eg. gambling industries like Genting, Toto, Magnum, slot machines etc. These are perfectly legal (provided with license).

                    FedCon is not as secured as you think. It has been amended like 600 times.

                    http://www.thestar.com.my/story/?file=%2F2008%2F6%2F29%2Flifebookshelf%2F21683239

                    “Since that time, however, it has experienced more than 600 amendments.”

                    Certain constitutionally enshrined rights such as royal immunity, AG’s security of tenure (prior to 1963), royal assent to laws and judiciary (has been amended from ‘judicial power shall be vested’ to ‘as the Parliament may confer”).

                    Ultimately, it is based on political will irrespective of whether a right is guarantee by FedCon or Parliament Act.

                      600 or whatever the number sounds a lot but some are technical and do not affect the basic structure of the constitution, and it’s not like the FedCon was amended separately in 600 sittings. It was a raft of amendments at one go.

                      Even to raise the salary of cabinet ministers, they need to amend the Act.

                      re: “Ultimately, it is based on political will irrespective of whether a right is guaranteed by FedCon or Parliament Act.”

                      Right! That’s why to abolish the vernacular school needs only political will by Umno.

          “Malays though disagree with existence of Vernacular schools are actually willing to tolerate it.”

          Very true. If Malays dislike the vernacular schools, certainly Malay and Indian parents would not send their kids there. It is the knowledge of the Chinese language that is why some Malay parents send their kids there. If the Chinese educationists would leave it all the educational level then alls well ends well. But they insist the Chinese attitude, that pisses off non Chinese speaking folks.
          Example: the huaren must speak hua yu, else you become another race.
          Dong Zong will become irrelevant if they menyimpang dari pendidikan and suka-suka berpolitik.
          Sometimes I wonder, they watch Empress of China for 75 hours but tak faham langsung kandungan rancangan.

      I thought that the Singapore MOE (Ministry of Education) recognises the Malaysian UEC?

      And Singapore public universities are ranked higher than Malaysian public universities – fact.

      So Singapore recognising the UEC is something to be proud about, yes?
