PRESS STATEMENT BY NATIONAL PUTERA MIC CHIEF
With regards to the racial remark thrown at polytechnic students in Shah Alam, I contacted the students immediately when it was brought to my attention. I then called the Director of the polytechnic involved for an immediate action and I was informed that the guard was terminated after learning and investigating the incident. I've also requested an incident report from the polytechnic.
Such issues should never happen especially in centres of education. I'm glad for the quick action which was taken to match the seriousness of the issue. Being a Malaysians is also about respecting other people's race and religion. Let such action be a lesson to those who tend to disrespect the very heart of being a Malaysian. Malaysia and Malaysians will not tolerate racism.
