THE Education Ministry “bullied” a Penang mission school by issuing a warning against it for allowing a Christian prayer to be recited during an awards event, said civil society group Pusat Komas today.

It said the ministry, under the leadership of Dr Maszlee Malik, displayed ignorance of the federal constitution, which grants citizens the right to profess and practice their religion.

  • What a load of nonsense! In a mission school, the school is not permitted to say a prayer ? Whats the name again? A missionary school. What are muslims doing in a Missionary school in the first place? Should the school be stricter in admitting students of other faith? Saying a prayer is considered to be proselytising the muslim students. What about daily bombardmentof azan 5 ttimes a day?
