Siti Inshah Mansor the Racist Headmistress
Let’s wait and see what action will be taken against Siti Inshah Mansor (pic above), the principal of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, Kulai, for the racist remarks she allegedly made at the Merdeka celebrations in her school
The first time I read about this disgraced headmistress, I just could not believed with what I read. The headmisteress who has been given the responsibility to ensure that students from various races in the school to live harmoniously with each other, ever said such a racist comments.
If I am to be given the opportunity to mete the punishment against this racict headmistress, the only punishment that fit her is an exile to the outer world that is by banishing her to Mars.
According to the Free Malaysia Today report, the police will be concluding their investigations soon, under Section 504 of the Penal Code. If they have a case, Siti Inshah could be charged with provocation, which carries a maximum imprisonment of two years, a fine or both.
Meanwhile, DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang has called for her to be sacked. MCA president Chua Soi Lek calls for her to be transferred to a desk job and given counselling. How generous of Chua. But what all the dayak leaders say about the case. As of when this article is written, the two vocal Iban leaders Masing and Jabu are still holding to their balls.
Siti Inshah is alleged to have said that Chinese students are not needed in the school and can go back to China or Sekolah Foon Yew (a private Chinese school in Johor), and that the prayer strings Indian students wear on their neck and wrist make them look like dogs, and only dogs would be tied this way. If the allegation is true, what could have possessed her to make her say such things? That is something that must be ascertained. Even if she had been provoked for some reason or other, it is still not her place to react this way to the students. She has a huge responsibility as a school principal to restrain her racist impulses.
Given the seriousness of the situation, if the allegation is true, how then can she be allowed to get away with it? If she were to be exonerated, imagine the damage she could further cause given her influential position.
If it is true that she behaved like a racist, her name should instead be remembered in the Hall of Shame.
So far, however, among the Barisan Nasional parties, only the MCA and the MIC have criticised the action. Has any Umno leader come out to say anything against it? And if so, why not? What about the dayak majority parties such as PRS, SPDP and PBB(Pesaka Wing) ? Being the supporter of harmony and peaceful Malaysia, I am urging all Iban's Ministers to come forward and condemn this racist headmistress.
