PKR President Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today urged Chinese education group Dong Jiao Zong not to hold its Chinese Organisation Congress that’s seeking to convince the government to cancel jawi lessons in vernacular schools.
He said the move will only cause further controversy and suggested that the group have a dialogue instead.
“Holding an anti-jawi congress will only create a pro-jawi congress.
“We must remember that jawi is part of the nation’s culture and the national language Bahasa Melayu began with Arab lettering before changing to jawi.
“Hence, I urge all parties including Dong Zong to return to the dialogue table,” he said.
