Its Government Responsibility to Build and Upgrade Tamil Schools

Only by receiving 50 million from government, MIC thanked and praised that it’s a fair government that cares for all. Human Resources Minister Dr S Subramaniam release this statement after Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak approved the MIC’s request for the sum. I’m sure Malaysian Indian not satisfied with what they have received yesterday. Read here.

For me the sum of money is just a one step in upgrading the Tamil schools, there are a lot to be done. Tamil schools must be built in the town areas which most of the Malaysian Indian are migrating from estates nowaday. Why not government carried out new plan to restore the Tamil schools that had been destroyed so far? Despite upgrading the existing schools, the government must start constructing new schools. The major towns in Malaysia for example, Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur still required sufficient schools.

We are not owning huge numbers of schools compare to the national schools or Chinese schools, but with only 523 schools around, our schools still struggling with lots of problems. Instead of having access to a large field, a school hall, science laboratories and a computer laboratory, the pupils of Tamil schools have to manage with the bare necessities. Some of the Tamil schools have no field, no laboratory or library, staff room for teachers or even proper toilets, no canteen, no proper roofing, and sometimes, no classrooms even. The amenities provided saddening us terribly.

Some concerned Samaritan voiced out the problems faced Tamil schools currently, constantly forcing government to address this issue immediately. Although there are initiatives by government, but it’s not enough to satisfy Malaysian Indian who has been marginalised for more than 50 years.

is it really hard for you to say thank you?

your parents without fail give rm2 for you everytime you go to school. Do you say thank you dad, or just say dad that's your responsibility.

think before you write.

Is my parents behaving like my government?
the most racist, cruel, greedy government in the world you compare with my parents?

My parents so caring and responsible, not like our government!

Government still failed to address our problem although lost our vote terribly...

Wht is wrong in thanking someone for their kindness ? When u fall down, ur enemy give u hand, u wont say thanks ? my goodness, Bangsa Malaysia is totally diverted from the real BANGSA MALAYSIA. Political agenda shouldnt spoil harmonious anf peace loving culture of Bangsa Malaysia. If Vasantaraou wants to be pro-opposition, please kindly remove the BANGSA MALAYSIA tittle. If u wanna be real Bangsa Malaysia, pls practice some good values. If thanking is wrong, the u r the real garbage of the community.

I don’t mean to rain on your parade, Subramaniam, but let me put this into a little perspective for you. First, this is somewhat akin to a maid thanking her boss for giving her a $25 raise and being so grateful and gushing with joy for the raise after having worked for slave wages for her boss for most of her life. Yes, Subramaniam, that’s about how this gesture from your political master fits into the larger scheme of things.

Second, while you may understandably be tickled to bits and are obviously wanting to brag about this news, let me reassure you that more than anything, this episode simply affirms what most of us – and especially the disenchanted Malaysian Indians – have known for much too long: your party is merely the ‘lap dog’ of the Umnoputeras. You see, Subramaniam, we Malaysians do not need to ‘say thanks’ to Umnoputeras for having our rights as Malaysians respected. In case it still has not sunk in on you and your ilk in the MIC, the Barisan Nasional regime that you pledge allegiance to is precisely the culprit for the systematic decades’ long marginalisation of Malaysian Indians.

Tamil schools have been allowed to deteriorate because your Barisan regime has been neglectful of the rights of a large cross-section of its citizens.

Malaysian Indians have been discriminated against in government educational policies by your Barisan regime.

Malaysian Indians have been discriminated against in housing policies by your Barisan regime.

Malaysian Indians have been discriminated against in government immigration policies by your Barisan regime.

Malaysian Indians have been discriminated against in government employment programs by your Barisan regime.

And the list goes on and on….

So, Subramaniam, give us a break. This utter drivel about your Umnoputera masters being ‘very fair’ just will not fool anybody. On the contrary, it simply affirms what I said above about the nature of your subservient relationship to the Umnoputeras where you have to be grateful to them for actually doing what they are obligated to do in the first place but have not done so. The fact of the matter is, your masters have been guilty of trampling on the rights of Malaysian citizens. Malaysian Indians did not rise up to protest and demand that their rights as citizens be acknowledged and respected because your masters have been ‘fair’; let alone ‘very fair.’ Quite the contrary!

And the fact that the regime has come around to do something about schools which they have opted to ignore for years and to rectify a problem they have repeatedly ignored (which must really speak to your MIC’s effectiveness, right?), is only, in my book, an acknowledgment on the part of your political masters that they have been negligent, if not outright contemptuous of their obligation to generations of Malaysian children who have been deprived of adequate schools.

You, Subramaniam, and your MIC comrades may bow down and say ‘romba thanks Tuan Dato Seri,’ but most of us say it’s about time this regime started respecting the rights of all Malaysians and lived up to its obligations and commitments.

In whatever condition, Tamil schools must not abandoned...

Satish said...

The bottomline is...

Tamil schools do need more assistance as they are clearly lacking the basic necessities needed by a school.

Don't think of it as if the Indians are ungrateful, demanding too much, questioning government...bla bla bla

Just see it as helping students in getting an education in schools equipped with the basic necessities.

Kalau hendakan perpaduan, berikan keadilan dan hak yang saksama kepada semua tanpa mengira kaum dan agama...

Ini bukan soal politik lah abang MOHD, ini soal hak asasi manusia...
