Bersatu Youth Insists That Vernacular Schools To Be Abolished For National Unity

The Bersatu Youth (Armada) has once again stand by its stance for vernacular schools to be abolished in phases.

It’s information chief Mohd Ashraf Mustaqim Badrul Munir said this after Bukti Mertajam Member of Parliament (MP) Steven Sim questioned in the Dewan Rakyat if Deputy National Unity Minister Wan Ahmad Fayshal Wan Ahmad Kamal still stood by his previous position to abolish vernacular schools, reported Malaysia Gazette.

Ashraf also said he had only sought for the Malay language to be strengthened in vernacular schools and the country’s history not omitted in the syllabus in vernacular schools.

He then said they are aware of the importance of strengthening the country’s education system, as will as the importance for the community to learn a second or third language, such as English, Mandarin and Tamil.

“Armada’s stand is firm and we believed that our values will bring positive changes to national unity, as well as the Malaysian spirit if all schools are being put under the same roof.” he said in a statement.

Ashraf also said this will help children understand the multiracialism and racial diversity in Malaysia. He stressed that this must be done under one system, instead of the different systems such as the vernacular schools, and that the Malay language remains the core of unity.

He then reprimanded DAP and its institutions for defending the vernacular schools and refusing to learn the Jawi language.

“It is not possible for Steven to not notice the percentage of non-Malay students in vernacular schools who cannot speak the national language.”

“This is a reality, they were born in Malaysia, they live in this country and this country has become their homeland, but they fail to speak the national language.” he said.

Ashraf said even Bangladeshis, Pakistanis and Nepalese who have been only living in Malaysia for a few months speaks more fluent Malay, and some who were living for a year or 2 could use better grammar than those who hold the blue MyKad.
