Schools are a place to encourage unity amongst Johoreans, not to divide our society. Today I received in audience Encik Abdul Razak bin Hamid, Principal of SMK Dato’ Bentara Luar, Batu Pahat, Tuan Haji Ismail bin Abu, District Officer of Batu Pahat, Tuan Hj Sahilon bin Abdul Halim, Deputy Director JPN (Acting JPN Johor Director) and Dr Suhaimi bin Ismail, Education Officer for Batu Pahat District.

I have been informed of the incident at SMK Dato’ Bentara Luar, Batu Pahat where there was racial segregation for registration of co-curricular activities. I have told the school principal and JPN Johor that this incident should never have happened and it must never happen again in any school in Johor. These actions are not in line with Bangsa Johor that promotes unity of all races under one identity for all Johoreans. Such incidents must be avoided to maintain harmony and unity amongst the people.
