I’m pretty much getting sick and tired of the way the Malaysian government handles things. One of them is the way they handle incompetent staff.
We have corrupted cops – what happens to those who are found to have committed some kind of offense?
IGP – We have transferred them to a remote location.
IGP : We’ve given them a desk job.
Prisoners run away from prison cells, an investigation has been conducted, and the guilty policemen are now…doing desk work.
YEY!!!! the world’s a much better place now! they’re doing desk work!…..no way in hell nothing’s going to go wrong now, rite? Cuz that’s the Malaysian way!!!
The latest thing that pissed me off is the way the authorities handled the case of the idiot teacher who has no idea we’re supposed to be living harmoniously in a multi-racial country:
KULA LUMPUR (timesofindia): About 500 angry ethic-Indians on Monday staged a protest outside a school demanding action against a teacher who allegedly hurled racial slurs against students from the community in western Malaysia’s Selangor state.
According to the police report, a woman history teacher had allegedly called Indian students in a Class four and five ‘Negro’, ‘black monkeys’ and other derogatory names.
The crowd began gathering outside the Banting school’s main entrance near here at noon and staged a protest for two hours.
The teacher had also allegedly said that the community members were stupid and prone to thievery, the Star daily reported on its website.
The alleged incidents took place on July 17 and 22 when the teacher had allegedly beaten up some Indians students.
A students also alleged in his report that the teacher had written the word ‘keling pariah’ on the board and lost her cool when the Indian students told her that they did not like being called names, it said.
Coalition of Malaysian Indian NGOs secretary Gunaraj George, who was among the protesters, said such abuse would only breed hatred and racial polarisation in schools.
“No one in his or her right frame of mind would have said these things. Given this, the best option would be for the teacher to be assigned to a desk job and not be allowed to be near youngsters anymore,” he said.
Meanwhile, Deputy Education Minister Wee Ka Siong said the schoolteacher might be sacked if the allegations proved true. “The allegations were serious as no one was allowed to insult others, especially in a school environment,” said Wee, who was asked to comment.
The ministry was awaiting an official report before taking any action, he added.
My first reaction was like…>Enna Dei Gunaraj….is that the best you could do? ask the teacher to be given a desk job?…oh ..wait….you must be one of those people used to the fact that incompetent people get desk jobs…but still…you could have asked for a better punishment.
Anyway, that was yesterday’s news. Today, in thestar, our ever so wonderful local newspaper which reports the whole truth, nothing but the truth…so help them satan:
BANTING: A secondary school teacher accused of hurling racial slurs against her Indian students recently is on leave prior to her transfer on Monday.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Senator T. Murugiah, who visited SMK Telok Panglima Garang yesterday, said the teacher regretted the incident and had apologised to the students.
“She also said that she did not expect things to become so serious and has agreed to be transferred to another school,” added Murugiah who was accompanied by officers from the Education Ministry and the Prime Minister’s Department’s Public Complaints Bureau.
Two students lodged police reports against the female history teacher last Friday alleging that she had made derogatory remarks about Indian students and called them unflattering names.
According to Murugiah, recommendations would also be made to the Education Ministry to institute disciplinary action against her.
He said the issue was now considered closed and advised members of the Indian community as well as parents of the affected students to accept the teacher’s apology.
However, relatives of the affected students as well as the members of the Telok Panglima Garang Indian community refused to regard the matter as closed.
“She must make a public apology as she insulted all Indians and be transferred to a desk job and not allowed to teach anymore,” said the group’s spokesman S. Muthamil Selvan.
Coalition of Malaysian Indian NGOs secretary Gunaraj George concurred and said his organisation was preparing a memorandum on the matter to be presented to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Yipee!!!! In true Malaysian style, she’s been transferred to a different school…..
OOps…i should be saying….Oh my god…I’m so bloody surprised….She actually got transferred out?…….thought she would have been fired.
But god forbid we fire any of our wonderful government staff. We don’t have enough staff. We don’t have enough teachers. We don’t have enough cops. We don’t have enough ACA officers. If there’s something wrong with them, we just transfer them to some other place… they might repent ……….
if they don’t…… well….quoting the not so wise words of an idiot prime minister running a country in south east asia – “Nevermind laaaaaa“
Hmmmmmmmm …..this has got me thinking…. if this is indeed Malaysia’s solution to take care of incompetent staff……….. can we get rid of the prime minister? I mean…not really get rid off…but…”transfer” him to another place. I know! I know! let’s “transfer” him to Perth. We can put him in charge of his own mansion there. He’ll be the Prime Minister of his own house. Heck, let’s just make him the King of his own house, if that will make him happy. Anything to get him out of this country….and he’ll have a pet walrus to take along with him.
