Was looking for another name in the panel. Maybe he can put the unused 'resource' waiting in the classrooms in his condo.

Novel Interlok Akhirnya Digugurkan Sebagai Teks Sastera Tingkatan 5

MELAKA: Novel kontroversi 'Interlok' karya Sasterawan Negara, Datuk Abdullah Hussain akhirnya akan dikeluarkan sebagai teks wajib sastera tingkatan lima mulai tahun depan.
Perkara ini diumumkan oleh Timbalan Presiden MIC, Datuk S. Subramaniam di sini semalam.
Beliau yang juga menteri sumber manusia menjelaskan, keputusan tersebut dibuat oleh Jemaah Menteri dalam mesyuarat mingguannya baru-baru ini.
Menurut beliau lagi, keputusan penuh mengenai perkara itu akan diumumkan oleh Menteri Pelajaran, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Novel tersebut yang mencetuskan kontroversi kerana mengandungi beberapa perkataan yang tidak disenangi oleh kaum India telah melalui proses pengeditan semula dan naskhah baru telah pun diterbitkan untuk kegunaan sekolah.

Adehh! Flip flop flip flop flip flop

Wondering now who is going to get ALL those naskah baru yang telah pun diterbitkan.

SURAT KHABAR LAMA! SURAT KHABAR LAMA!

Hmm ..wondering too if the author gets anything apart from heart attack out of this.

I was a bit surprised when I read the news that Tony and Azman were selected to be part of the panel. I guess Muhyiddin knows something that I don't. Or maybe he's using the `thinking out of the box approach'. For now, let the panel get on with its job and see if they can come up with something good.

On the Interlok issue, seems to me the MIC leader tak sabar-sabar nak buat announcement. Tak boleh tunggu Menteri yg officially announce.

I am a bit perplexed about this issue and have asked some of my teacher friends on what exactly MIC complained about. I think I need to get a copy of this book and read it myself.

Dear Oldstock,

the issue regarding Interlok is one word 'pariah' used in the book.

that book was written by a national laureate Abdullah Hussin [who has since suffered a heart attack] when our parents refer to today's Malaysian Indians as 'keling'.

in 1991, when teaching in Hutan Melintang Perak, one of my Melayu students called his classmate keling and the keling student tumbuk that Melayu. Only then i realised Malaysian Indians does not accept the word keling as we Melayu means it ... descendent of people who came from a continent known to our forefathers as Kalinga.

And now comes Interlok. the powers that be decided for it to be used as literature text for form 5 students. imagine how many has been printed waiting to be distributed to schools.and now it is being scrapped off. how much more to print out NEW books? who is getting the money?

haishhh ..now i am confused what what is the issue wit interlok
