Last week, NST reported that the Terengganu Education Department had sent 66 schoolboys with “effeminate tendencies” to a camp aimed at helping them behave appropriately.
Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman, who was chairman of the state’s Education, Higher Education, Science, Technology and Human Resources Committee, said his department was proactively identifying male students who were failed to take part in associations, uniformed bodies and sports to join the personality development programme but denied the step was aimed at “correcting” effeminate behaviour. The course was to “build student character.”
Maybe they should invite some successful and respected pillars of community to speak to the children.
How about inviting
1. our 1st and only Angkasawan Datuk Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor
2. former Mr Malaysia Mr Asia, Datuk Malek Noor
3. Datuk Redzuawan Ismail aka Chef Wan
Fine Malaysian men to address these young male students, dont you think?
