Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 7.8.2014.

The 3 MCA and Gerakan Ministers must draw the red line that the Cabinet disavow Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Razali Ibrahim’s divisive, extremist and unconstitutional attacks against Mandarin mother tongue education by building a new Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina(SJKC) in Bukit Indah, Johor or else they will resign the Ministerial posts.

In response to requests for a new SJKC in Bukit Indah, Datuk Razali had called on the BN Federal government not to build any more new Chinese schools because the existence of SJKC does not strengthen national schools and served only to divide the people and rupture relations between the various races. DAP cannot understand this backward thinking and perverse logic when MCA Ministers are appointed even though they attend SJKCs. Is Razali saying that the 2 MCA Ministers are divisive and anti-national?

The learning and study of mother-tongue education is a fundamental constitutional right under Article 152 of the Federal Constituton. This right is also protected under the United Nations. For this reason, the 3 MCA and Gerakan Ministers must boldly demand that Cabinet repudiate Razali’s extremist comments by words and deeds.

Building a new SJKC is the more effective answer to express not only the BN Federal government’s commitment to mother-tongue education but also a slap in the face for extremists like Razali.A new SJKC in Bukit Indah is necessary because the existing SJKC are full and too far away such as SJKC Kuo Kuang 2 (Skudai), SJKC Ming Chih (Horizon Hills), SJKC Ming Teck (Gelang Patah) and SJKC Ping Min (Lima Kedai).

The 3 MCA and Gerakan Ministers must therefore draw a red line and resign if this is not achieved at the next Cabinet meeting. If no new SJKC are allowed to be built, then the next step in future will be extremists like Razali calling for the closure of SJKC. Failing to resign will also show that both MCA and Gerakan value the perks and privileges of Ministerial posts over principle and prefer empty propaganda over people-centric policies.

民主行动党秘书长兼眼国会议员林冠英于2014年8月7日在吉隆坡发表的文告。

马华与民政党部长必须划清界线,在内阁否决拉查理在柔佛武吉英达兴建华小的课题上,分化、极端及有违宪法精神地攻击中文为母语的教育,否则他们就应该引咎辞职。

3名马华与民政部长必须划清界线,在内阁否决拉查理在柔佛武吉英达兴建华小的课题上,分化、极端及有违宪法精神地攻击中文为母语的教育,否则他们就应该引咎辞职。

在回应武吉英达增建新的华小课题上,拿督拉查理呼吁国阵联邦政府别再兴建新的中文学校,因为现有的华小不只没能强化国民学校,而且只会分化人民,还有破坏种族间的关系。行动党不明白这背后的想法及本末倒置的逻辑,特别是受委的马华部长也是来自华小。难道拉查理认为2位马华部长也是分化及反国家?

在联邦宪法第152条文列明,学习母语教育是宪法赋予的基本权力。这项权力也在联合国的保护之下。有鉴于此,3名马华及民政部长必须大胆的要求内阁否决拉查理的极端言论。

兴建新的华小不只实践国阵联邦政府对母语教育承诺的最有力答案,同时也能对拉查里这种极端份子的嘴脸狠刮一巴掌。武吉英达急需华小,因为现有的华小已经爆满甚至非常远,如:士古来的国光2校、浩然山庄明智华小、振林山明德华小及五间店平民小学。

因此,3名马华与民政部长必须划清界线,如果无法在内阁中表明立场,他们就应该引咎辞职。如果今天不允许兴建新的华小,接下来像拉查理这种极端分子就会呼吁关闭华小。如果他们不辞职,只是显示马华及民政党重视官职特权胜于原则,只好空谈胜于民本政策。

林冠英
