Dong Zong hits out at radio host over his remarks
PETALING JAYA: The United Chinese School Committees Association of Malaysia (Dong Zong) has hit out at former 988 Chinese radio station host Jamaluddin Ibrahim for allegedly making remarks opposing the vernacular schools system.
“His call for a single-stream school system shows that he does not respect the Federal Consti-tution and people’s right to mother tongue education,” Dong Zong said in a statement.
It said Jamaluddin did not understand the importance of having access to Chinese language education, which was different from learning Chinese as a second language in schools.
Jamaluddin allegedly made the remarks at a forum organised by DAP in Malacca recently.
