As teacher sues victim for RM1 mil, Education Minister & Co go missing

PULL your finger out, Ministers for Education Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin, Women, Family and Community Development Datuk Seri Rina Harun and Youth Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican – and do something about the teacher who allegedly cracked rape jokes in his school.

Things are dangerously escalating out of control.

In April, Form 5 pupil Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam highlighted rape jokes made by a male teacher at a Kuala Selangor school.

Three days later, she received a rape threat from her classmate.

The police assigned to investigate her case, joked that she should be able to take a joke.

Four months later, the teacher, who was not named, has demanded a RM1 mil compensation from Ain Husniza.

So what happened to the ministers, Radzi, Rina and Reezal? Already earning gaji buta (blind salary), they have now gone into hiding.

At this rate, teachers and male students who make lewd jokes in class will not be censured because they will think the state is protecting them.

Is this the environment parents and students want in school?

No wonder we have a lawless society because problems like these are not nipped in the bud.

In the dark

The ministers are clueless and do not know how to handle the situation because they would prefer to stick their heads in the sand.

We have incompetent teachers. We also have incompetent and irresponsible ministers who are scared about taking action. They do not want to upset others.

Where are the voices of condemnation from the Teacher’s Union, the Parents Teachers association, the Civil servants union, women/children non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and academia?

Do they not care?

One cannot depend on the secretary-general of the National Union of the Teaching Profession Malaysia (NUTP), Harry Tan. This is what he had to say about Ain Husniza’s allegations.

Tan was sceptical about the allegation made by 17-year-old Ain Husniza who said that her teacher had made a joke about rape, during class. It is clear who Harry Tan is trying to please. Both the Prime Minister Prime Minister Tan Sri Maihaddin Yassin and Radzi.

Tan did not do the teachers and students any favours. Instead of taking care of their interests and concerns, he was simply arrogant, insensitive and brown-nosing. He failed them. He is not worthy of his post.

He asked, “How is it a widespread problem? Where are the statistics? Where is the data? Who are they talking about? How many schools are involved?

“We have 450,000 teachers in the country, we have 10,000 schools. How many schools are they talking about? Give me the facts.”

So you see, Malaysians despise these silent people who have the authority to act but won’t.

Nobody, including the headmaster of Ain’s school, dare to stick their necks out and do the right thing.

Is the above failure to protect students, one of the reasons Datuk Seri Nazri Mohamed Abdul Aziz took his son out of Malaysia and enrolled him in a school in the kafir France?

Back in the corridors of power in Putrajaya, Radzi Jidin, Rina Harun and Reezal Merican are probably not aware what is happening in the big bad world called Malaysia.

Will they start assuming some sort of responsibility?

The Perikatan Nasional Government cannot protect the most vulnerable in society and yet Mahiaddin claims he will save Malaysia. – Aug 5, 2021
