Malaysian Teacher Tells Chinese to go Home

People from China can suck, but this is messed up. A teacher in Malaysia told ethnic Chinese to go home. The kids are Malaysian so that is kind of messed up.


In what sounds like a repeat of recent incidents, a teacher in a secondary school in Semenyih, Selangor, is alleged to have told students refusing to sing and respect the national anthem to “go back to India (or) China”.

According to Sin Chew Daily, the assistant principal of SMK Engku Husain said during the afternoon session weekly assembly on Sept 23 that the students could “go back” if they did not like Malaysia.

The daily reported that the school was already investigating the matter, which came to the principal’s attention when ethnic Chinese students posted about it on their Facebook pages.

Principal Abdul Ghafar Kunchi Mohd (right) told Sin Chew that the students, some of whom do not understand Bahasa Malaysia well, had been advised, warned and even caned for not singing or respecting the ‘Negaraku’, but to no avail.

Assistant principal to be told to explain

Ghafar said this could have been the reason the assistant principal had lost patience and uttered those remarks, but he would ask her to explain when she returns from a course tomorrow.

“However, whether Malay, Chinese or Indian, everyone is Malaysian. This remark should not have been uttered. Therefore I will ask the assistant principal to apologise to students at the assembly,” he was quoted as saying.
