KLANG 28 Mac – Murid tahun dua yang dipaksa memotong lidahnya sendiri, Muhammad Alif Shukran Alias, 8, kini terpaksa ‘bercuti’ panjang gara-gara mahu mengelak dari­pada terus menjadi mangsa buli di sekolahnya.

Bapanya, Alias Abdullah, 34, berkata, dia mengambil langkah tersebut sehinggalah anak sulung_nya itu dapat bertukar ke sekolah lain.

Menurutnya, tindakan itu terpaksa diambil memandangkan aduan buli ke atas Alif yang didakwa dibuatnya kepada pengurusan sekolah sebelum ini masih belum mendapat maklum balas positif.

“Buat masa ini Alif tidak akan ke sekolah. Tunggu hingga dia dapat tukar sekolah baharu,” katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Dalam satu kejadian buli di sebuah sekolah rendah yang disifatkan paling tragis pernah berlaku Khamis lalu, Muhammad Alif Shukran dipaksa memotong lidahnya sendiri.

Dia mendakwa dipaksa berbuat demikian oleh sekumpulan lima murid tahun tiga dari sekolah yang sama ketika waktu rehat.

Menurut Muhammad Alif Shukran, kejadian berlaku kira-kira pukul 3.45 petang semasa dia ke tandas berseorangan.

Ketika hendak keluar dari tandas, dia ditahan oleh murid-murid tersebut yang memaksanya menggunting lidah sendiri.

Akibat kejadian itu, lidahnya putus sedikit di bahagian hujung dan menerima satu jahitan.

Sementara itu, tinjauan di rumah Alif di Bukit Tinggi hari ini mendapatinya tekun menelaah pelajaran dengan bantuan ibunya, Siti Nurhuda Ibrahim, 29.

Meskipun tidak ke sekolah, dia kelihatan begitu bersemangat membaca dan belajar menggunakan buku teks serta buku latihan.

PRESIDEN Persekutuan Silat Kebangsaan Malaysia (PESAKA), Tan Sri Mohd Ali Rustam.

IPOH: Program Satu Sekolah Satu Silat dijangka mula dilaksanakan oleh Kementerian Pendidikan bulan depan sebagai usaha untuk memperkenalkan seni pertahanan diri itu kepada pelajar.

Presiden Persekutuan Silat Kebangsaan Malaysia (PESAKA), Tan Sri Mohd Ali Rustam, berkata pihaknya yakin langkah tersebut akan dapat memastikan seni persilatan tersebut terus subur di negara ini.

Malah, katanya ia juga selaras dengan pengumuman Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak pada September lalu yang mengiktiraf silat sebagai seni mempertahankan diri rasmi negara.

“Hari ini kita tengok silat telah mendapat tumpuan orang bukan Melayu sebagaimana kita (Melayu) meminati taekwondo dan karate,” katanya ketika merasmikan program pemimpin turun ke gelanggang silat peringkat Perak di sini malam tadi.

Mohd Ali berkata sejajar dengan pengiktirafan kerajaan terhadap seni silat, maka lebih banyak universiti disaran menjadikan persilatan sebagai kokurikulum berpersatuan mereka.

Beliau berkata setakat ini hanya Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) yang menjadikan Seni Silat Cekak Malaysia sebagai kokurikulumnya dengan menawarkan enam jam kredit pengajian.

“Saya berharap lebih banyak universiti mengikut jejak USM kerana kebangkitan pesilat begitu ketara. Ia perlu ditonjolkan ke seluruh dunia,” katanya.

Beliau menarik perhatian apabila berkata satu perhimpunan bagi persatuan silat seluruh negara akan diadakan di Kuala Lumpur pada 14 Mei yang dijangka dihadiri kira-kira 200,000 pesilat.

“Macam-macam acara kita akan adakan termasuk persembahan pelbagai jenis silat serta pameran pakaian dan peralatan silat,” katanya sambil menambah ketika ini terdapat kira-kira empat juta pesilat di seluruh negara. – BERNAMA

KUALA TERENGGANU: Pihak sekolah di negeri ini dilarang daripada mengadakan aktiviti di tempat terbuka antara 12.30 tengah hari dan 2.30 petang berikutan cuaca panas sekarang.

Pengarah Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri, Shafruddin Ali Hussin, berkata cuaca di negeri ini dijangka berada sekitar 35 darjah Celsius sepanjang minggu ini.

Beliau berkata, bagi aktiviti kokurikulum pada setiap petang Selasa, pihak sekolah telah dimaklumkan agar melakukannya di dalam bangunan.

Beliau memuji langkah sesetengah Persatuan Ibu Bapa dan Guru (PIBG) yang turut menyediakan air minuman kepada murid ketika cuaca panas ketika ini.

“Bagi sekolah yang tidak menyediakan air minuman percuma, mereka boleh antara lain menyediakan mesin air minuman,” katanya kepada BERNAMA.

Pada Sabtu lalu seorang anggota polis pengsan ketika acara perbarisan sempena Sambutan Hari Polis Ke-209 di sini yang dipercayai badannya mengalami kekurangan air akibat cuaca panas. – BERNAMA

‘One School One Silat’ programme to begin in April

IPOH: The ‘One School One Silat’ programme is scheduled to be implemented by the Education Ministry next month as part of the effort to introduce the Malay art of self-defence to students.

Malaysian National Silat Federation chairman (Pesaka) Tan Sri Mohd Ali Rustam said the move would also ensure the art continued to grow in the country.

He said it was also in line with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s announcement last September in recognising “silat” as the country’s official art of self-defence.

“Today, the silat is getting response from the non-Malays, like we (Malays) are interested in taekwondo and karate,” he said at a silat programme here last night.

Ali said with the recognition given by the government to silat, more universities in the country should make the art of self-defence as part of their co-curriculum activities.

So far, only Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) has made the “Seni Silat Cekak Malaysia” as a co-curriculum subject with six credit hours. In another development, Mohd Ali said a gathering of silat associations nationwide would be held in Kuala Lumpur on May 14.

He expected about 200,000 silat enthusiasts to be present at the event. — Bernama

More kids pushing drugs

 

KUALA LUMPUR: The number of teens caught for drug peddling and abuse is getting alarmingly high, with 7,412 teens arrested last year, of which 89 were only 13 years old.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, says Bukit Aman Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department director Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff.

“There are many more unrecorded cases,” he said. “In 2014, 4% of those arrested were still in school while last year, it was 5%.”

Comm Mohd Mokhtar cited peer pressure, exposure, neglect and lack of parental guidance as reasons why some youth were drawn to drugs at such a young age.

“Most of them also do drugs for fun, the lifestyle or when they’re depressed,” he said.

“The highest arrests of youths below 18 in recent years would be in 2013 and 2014. In 2013, we arrested 8,376 teens while 7,915 were arrested the following year.

“Although there is a decrease by 2.8%, it is still alarming,” he said.

While it is a serious issue, Comm Mohd Mokhtar said statistics showed a downward trend with a total number of cases last year dropping by 580.

However, the number of 13-year-olds arrested for drug-related offences went up from 76 to 89.

“Proactive measures must be put in place to curb this problem. These children usually come from broken families and lack moral or religious education. Some also have social problems,” he said.

Although police do not provide counselling, Comm Mohd Mokhtar said they were working closely with the Education Ministry by providing details of arrested students.

“We are also active in organising awareness campaigns in primary and secondary schools by placing liaison officers schools to monitor problems faced by students,” he said.

Education Ministry says didn’t set question gauging religions’ stand on graft

KUALA LUMPUR, March 28 — A controversial test question asking students to state which religion most conformed to a statement against corruption was not issued by the Education Ministry, Deputy Education Minister Chong Sin Woon has said.

Chong reportedly said the test question was written by a teacher in a secondary school in Sarawak for a test paper at the school, adding that the ministry has since issued a warning to the teacher and that the matter has been rectified.

According to Sin Chew Daily, Chong said the teacher should not have made comparisons between four different religions, in light of the religious freedom practised in Malaysia.

Chong also said that all religions carry anti-corruption teachings.

While noting that the teacher had drawn up the test question using the ministry’s Moral Studies curriculum and that the curriculum itself was not problematic, Chong said the teacher should have avoided religious overtones.

He said the matter, which Sin Chew said involved a Form 2 teacher, has been resolved.

The test question, which was posted online last Tuesday by a Facebook user identified as Musa Ngog Tbs, drew controversy and criticism.

It asked students to identify which religion — Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism — held the view that bribes should not be taken as corruption hides the truth.

Probe on pupil’s tongue-cutting incident ready this weekend

 

KLANG, March 28 — Investigations on the case of a pupil who was allegedly forced to cut his own tongue in a bully incident at a school here last Thursday, was expected to be wrapped up this weekend.

Klang Selatan police chief ACP Azman Abdul Razak said police were now in the process of obtaining statements from various parties including the victim, witnesses, suspects and teachers involved.

“To record statements from the victim and witnesses was the biggest challenge to police as they were young and aged less than 10 years.

“We need to wait for them to calm down their emotion before statements could be taken,” he told reporters here today.

Besides, all statements taken would be submitted to Bukit Aman for study while forensic unit had also been called to recover evidence including blood to support the statements of witnesses.

Last Thursday, the eight-year-old boy claimed that he was forced to cut his own tongue by a group of five Standard Three pupils from the same school. — Bernama
