Mukhriz ‘not being racist’

IT is baseless to term Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir’s (BN – Jerlun) call for a single education system as racist, Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said.

“The statement was meant for all to be united,” he said at the Parliament lobby yesterday.

In Malaysia’’s education system, two streams exist with the main stream being national schools and the other being government-assisted schools like Chinese and Tamil national type schools, mission schools and religious schools, he said.
