Dr. Mahathir calls Dong Zong racist over khat issue

PM Mahathir Mohamad has labeled Dong Zong, the United Chinese School Committees’ Association, as racist as it’s always opposing the government’s efforts to foster unity with education policies.

The prime minister said the Chinese education group had previously opposed setting up inclusive education system that put races together in a same school campus.

“Dong Zong is racist; we set up a campus in Vision School to put a Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina, a SJK Tamil and a national school in one campus, but they were against it.” He added. Khat will be included in the Bahasa Melayu curriculum for Year four in Chinese and Tamil primary schools next year.
