There’s nothing more that I can think of in short space of time with for a simple yet effective and long lasting solution.
It was suggested years ago, where a group of anonymous bloggers suggested ‘Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua‘ as a tool and solution to provide a better and assimilated Malaysians as truly Malaysians in a long run.
The portal started back on 31st August 2009, when Malaysians celebrated Independence Day. Its first article was written in dual language – in BM and English, trying to accommodate Malaysians who usually (and should be) having basic good BM and English. Let us read what was stated in their first ever article:
The proposal is based on the belief that education plays an important role in achieving national unity and in creating the atmosphere for the emergence of a cohesive Bangsa Malaysia. The DNBC proposes that the Government carries out an in-depth study or review of the existing education system to find out its strengths and weaknesses, determine ways and means to rectify the weaknesses and carry out improvements, with a view to achieving the above-stated objective. A Memorandum containing that proposal was drafted for submission to the Deputy Prime Minister cum Minister of Education and a campaign was started to get public support for it
I was and still in support in this noble cause.
And looking at how current situation develops, I do believe Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (“SSUS”) can be a catalyst, a tool for Malaysians develop a harmonious community where we really do not hide behind “human rights” when asked, but accuse someone else as “racist” JUST BECAUSE some cannot assimilate and respect other Malaysian’s right.
Yes, perhaps, with SSUS in place, one day, BN will be no longer be pictured as UMNO-MCA-MIC and other party components.
Same goes to PR. We may see DAP leadership consist of REALLY, REALLY mixed with not just dominantly chinese, but with other ethnicity. Perhaps we also can see non-malay and non-bumi as part of PAS leadership line-up.
PKR? Oh well, they are mixed, but still dominantly by family and friends. To me, their case is kind of “unique”
Please, let us consider this effort and make it as a tool to build a better Malaysia.
Let us put political difference aside. Support this noble effort. Let’s make it a reality, not just a tool for political rhetoric.
For a better Malaysia… are you in it to realise it?
Hopes on the street: A better Malaysia, we can do it together!
