ABOLISH CHINESE & TAMIL SCHOOLS TO END NON-MALAY ‘INSOLENCE’ – PERLIS MUFTI: WILL MAHATHIR’S IGP DARE PROBE ASRI FOR RACIAL INCITEMENT – EVEN AS UNIMAP ANNOUNCES PROBE INTO ‘ZAKIR NAIK AN ICON’ EXAM QUESTION, WARNS ITS LECTURERS TO STAY RACIALLY & RELIGIOUSLY SENSITIVE

KUALA LUMPUR — Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) said today it is conducting an internal investigation after a question involving controversial televangelist Dr Zakir Naik entered an examination paper.In a statement, the university also said it will review its examination question vetting process to ensure that lecturers are more sensitive towards ethnic and religious issues when drafting such questions.

It added that an official statement will be released once the investigation into the Ethnic Relations paper has collected all available information.
The institution also requested all parties to “cease provocations” which could give rise to disharmony, and instead provide UniMAP space to conduct its investigation thoroughly.
Dr Zakir Naik, which has been a polarising figure in Malaysia, was positioned as “an icon in the Muslim world” in one of the exam questions, drawing criticisms from many public figures, such as Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P. Ramasamy and Penang Mufti Datuk Seri Wan Salim Wan Mohd.
In response, the Department of Higher Education (JPT) said earlier today that UniMAP is solely responsible for any of its collegiate education programmes.
Following several controversial exam questions, JPT said the matter is solely under the purview of UniMAP as it has the autonomy to set its own syllabus. MALAY MAIL

Perlis mufti: Racial friction will persist as long as vernacular schools exist

Perlis mufti Asri Zainul Abidin today has put the blame of racial tension on vernacular schools.
He also claimed that there has been an endless incidence of “insolence”.
“As long as vernacular schools which do not use the national language is not abolished in this country, friction and insolence between races will not cease,” he said in a Facebook post.
Asri said there is a need to return a political power that is able to deal with such insolences.
“We must all unite and forget our differences to return the country’s strength and political power that is able to sternly face this insolence,” he said.
Asri’s comment came amid opposition from vernacular groups against the revised Year 4 Bahasa Malaysia syllabus.
The revised syllabus includes three pages of Jawi lessons which the groups insist should be removed. MKINI
