Don’t damage a child’s psyche

From disrespecting the sanctity of a human being to manipulating and politicising racial sentiments, the Education Ministry's obtrusive actions have wrecked the very fragile racial ties in the country.

Last September the Education Ministry embarked on a mission to brainwash students and forewarn them against the 'harm' in embracing human beings from a different sexual orientation.

The ministry went so far as to to sanction a set of guidelines to 'educate' parents and students on rejecting all notions of homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism.

The then deputy Education Minister Mohd Puad Zarkashi was only too happy to take on the mission of eradicating the existence of the lesbian, gays, bisexuals and transgender communities.

For starters, a so-called parenting seminar was held on the topic of LGBT by the Yayasan Guru Malaysia Berhad and Putrajaya Schools Parent-Teacher Associations Consultative Council.

Leaflets stereotyping the LGBT groups were made available to the participating parents; they were told to be wary should their off-springs take an interets in V-neck T-shirts which the parents were told were the 'trademark' of homosexuals.

Then in April this year the Education Ministry decided to 'pep up' its anti-LGBT stand with the government-funded free-for-all musical 'Asmara Songsang (Abnornal Desire) which kicked off in March.

A blogger who had reviewed the musical remarked that it was "as narrow minded and bigoted a view as one could get".

But is the Education Ministry or the Barisan Nasional-led government perturbed by the hate and malignant culture it is so busy propagating in schools?

Don't damage a child's psyche

From its 'hate people who are different' mission, the Education Ministry has moved on to yet another soul-destroying step, this time 'teaching' the Muslim students and teachers to disregard the feelings and sentiments of the non-Muslims natives of this country.

When the non-Muslim students of a school were 'forced' to eat in a makeshift canteen near the school's toilet simply because the school decided to shut down its canteen to observe the fasting month of Ramadan, Deputy Education Minister II P Kamalanathan did not find the issue of the school disrespecting the basic rights of a child to a clean environment a big deal.

In fact, Kamalanathan dismissed any hint of racial discord taking place at the school and went on to support the school's alibi that the canteen was closed to facilitate renovation work.

Knowingly or otherwise, this insenstitive act by SK Seri Pristana has opened up a can of worms, one whose stench travels way back to the Education Ministry's four-walls.
