Islam or Bukan Islam ?

Now the system has got me really pissed-off and I am so sooooooo shocked !

What is the rational behind stating one's religion in the PMR question/answer sheet?
And worst still it says "Islam or Bukan Islam". Pray tell me, is this necessary, in this year and time, for these morons in the Education Ministry, our elected representitives, to segregate and identify young students by their religion ? Is this also the reason for the National Service to florish when these kids reach 17 ? If need be why not mention 'What type of muslim? e.g. "Sunni or Shi'te" ! Or why not state muslims, hindus, buddist or christians ??

Come on you idiots in the Education Ministry, STOP this bloody bigotry classification of innocent children who are barely 12 years old !Doesn't anyone respect each other anymore unless they are of a certain religion ?? My best pals are Muslims or Hindus or Buddist or Catholics.... and I don't even care if they were communist... they will be my friends. Try not to loose sight of the forest for the trees !!!

I was also made to understand, (I am yet to verify this !) the reason for such indentification is that, the passing marks for those who put down as 'Islam' are lower then those who are not !
Is'nt this the most ridiculous form of marking an exam paper ? How then, can those who are 'Islam' compete with those who are not ?Surely those who are not 'Islam' are superior in terms of intellect going by this rule ! Do they,those who put down as 'Islam', want to be inferior delibrately ? Surely NOT ! With all due respect, do the muslim parent know of this rule ? If I was such a parent, I'd be ashamed , that my child is not competing on a level field, because, I have to know my child scored marks or passed exams because he/she sacrificed,slogged and studied, not because the marks were lowered for him/her because he/she was a muslim !!

If this was true, stop this rot NOW, please, for God's sake!...... before we start regreting later, as is seen in the current state of affairs of this country !
Be proud to be Malaysian but MOST of all be a decent human being !

Keep holy the Ramadan and to all my Muslim friends...
" Selamat Berbuka Puasa " !

Did this really happen? This is really blatant...the Ministry of Education should be more subtle: ADA KERIS ATAU TIDAK KERIS. But of course we would be expecting too much asking for subtlty. God help Malaysia. Next election, my stand will be Undi Rosak.

Hi shanghaifish, this matter was highlighted some time ago. i recall the authorities saying there's no hidden agenda in the move. One of the reasons given for the requirement for students to indicate whether they are muslim or non-muslim on the registration slip was to make sure only Muslims took the Pendidikan Islam paper. Last year the Ed ministry said they will scrap the requirement from this year, because people complained. I dont know if they indeed have scrapped it?

to zorro and mojo,
I can bravely say that it has been verified and confirmed that this idiotic practise is still carried on till today !
My neice is sitting for her PMR and she has "CINA- BUKAN ISLAM" printed on her answer sheet !If it is for the Pendidikan Islam paper, then why not only print the offending remark on THAT paper ?
This education system has really gone to the dogs !Talk about 'kris' yeilding monkeys in suits !
God, protect us all Malaysians !
